that "feeling"

Look out, its Bala and his "feelings" again!


Gurunistha recently wrote something that I wanted to reshare with you:


"Yesterday, when I tied Mohan to the fence again and sat down next to him and the evening sun was warming my back, every part of my being felt calm. It was so easy to breathe. The other calves were running around and their bells were ringing and everything was like it is supposed to be. For a while I felt different kind of happiness than what I had used to. I felt that I was in the exactly right place at the right time. That there's absolutely no better place for me to be, anywhere."


I've had fleeting moments and glimpses of happiness like this but have never been able to accurately articulate it as he did. He captured it perfectly. Does anyone else ever experience those moments? I wonder if that's what Goloka Vrndavan is like. Could they be brief glimpses into the spritual world?

I get those feelings once in a while; I suppose everyone does. When everything seems in place. In my case, it is often connected with nature (we Finns have a soft spot especially for forests) and bodily well-being. I'm not sure that it always has that much to do with spirituality, at least in my case. It's more like a feeling of mental and physical contentment, like sitting down in a beautiful place after a long walk. But it is nice!

I've had feelings of peace and contentment at different times and places, but I swear Audarya can sometimes crack open the door to the spiritual world...


The only other time I've experienced this is at the holy dhamas.

I feel like that when they make me speak about Krsna and I learn things myself while speaking. I feel an intense gratitude, or I feel like when you plug your laptop to the powerline: it works like before but on top of it it recharges!
