The Divine Eye and Meditation... Seeing things nobody sees...
Friends would think this bizarre coming from me... however, it happened and it gives me hope that there is something even further beyond my limited experience with it.
Theravada Buddhists believe that there are 4 main levels of absorption... Jhanas 1-4. Once you have experienced them there are more... the arruppa Jhanas... but there is another direction you can take if you so wish. That of developing paranormal 'powers'.
I'm the most realistic, objective, and disbelieving guy when it comes to paranormal things. At least I used to be. This changed me though.
I had been through the Jhanas and aruppas. I was sitting on the rug in my bedroom, eyes closed, half-lotus position. I don't usually open my eyes - but I did sometimes during this session. When I did I focused on a place in the rug. There was no pattern on the rug, but soon I began to see patterns. I then saw curves... I began to sense something in my mind that corresponded to the image forming in the rug. I saw an ever changing shape that was small... blob like. In my mind I 'knew' that this something was related to me, my mom & dad, and my family and also was part of my wife. It was as if it was showing me itself.
The experience lasted less than a minute and I continued to meditate for 30 minutes with a very relaxed mind in the 3rd Jhana.
When I got up I wrote about the experience in my journal and told my wife about it.
The next night my wife was showering in the bathroom next to the bedroom. I had sat down to meditate. In minutes I heard her screaming for me. She was in shock and couldn't move. There was blood on the tub... She had spontaneously aborted there as she showered. The baby was very tiny... surrounded by a mass of tissue, but visible. It was then I realized what I saw the night prior. Wow.
An amazing experience that showed me that there are things going on that we don't see. I was 100% skeptic of such "nonsense" until the nonsense happened to me!
I wrote a poem about it back then...
I envisioned a face
just days ago
on the blue rug
as one's self
Like Fern and
a blending of us
yet without gender
hit the floor
with the softest
The blood rinsed
leaving a mass
on the white
shock and nothingness
A hand wrapped
in white tissue
lifted our child
for closer inspection
veins were seen
and fleshy tissue
a toilet was flushed
and so were our faces
A sadness was felt
a seriousness brought
to us who like
No pain was felt
No tears wept
just thoughts of
and no longer is
of what would have
An ending to
a continuance of
death of the spirit
There were some more experiences though nothing this strange. Maybe will post more about it at my blog?
