Modifying your poetry a bit, it was the beginning and the end!

Meaning in life is derived from our perceived connections to two especially good people.

Hi Will,

Maybe I'll see you there--February 14th is the next meeting for these people, WorcesterHumanists.org

I don't get near Facebook because I hear it's been hell to control and besides they're constantly playing games with it. I love email, it's more thoughtful, and so I don't go much for social media. I'm 70, single, a retired dad, one son.

Write anytime? Maybe we can meet for coffee--BurgerKing or anywhere's fine with me!  Brian.McLinden@gmail.com

Turning now to your interest in the psychology of enlightenment, let me say I once had a peak experience during my first meditation session with TM years ago.

I was doing what they had told me to do, just tending to business, when all of a sudden it was as if I were catapulted into an Expanse, like an infinite hall but with no walls and with no sense of time passing, a Place with tremendous energy or enlivement, yet a sense of stillness, order, and peace.

I felt wonderment, amazement, okayness. The experience, certainly in those years I thought had to be one of Eternity, couldn't have lasted for more than one microsecond! This was MY "natural wonder" of my lifetime. It was rare, and no one I know has ever experienced anything like it.

That's why for years I said it was an occurrence of God, not knowing what else to say about it or what to ascribe it to. So I guess the God word has been used by the ignorant to name any remaining things that appear to defy ready explanation using terms we already know.

Hi Will,

Your interest in counseling and history as a single father interested me. If you're still saying Hello to people, I'd love to hear back from you!
