I wonder if the space between being awake and asleep is where enlightenment and the soul is. What triggered this pondering is the documentary by Martin Scorcese on George Harrison called Living in the material world. At the end two extraordinary things were said by Dhani Harrison and his mother Olivia. Dhani said that when his dad died he had NO SCARS from the awful attack from 2 years previously. Olivia said that when George died the room became so light it was like a movie set!
The work I do has opened up new realms of discovery and exploration in that realm because as my body has become more released and quiet I can briefly enter that space between consciousness and sleep and it is VERY LIGHT! It is tenuous because even the tiniest muscle spasm or awareness of the slightest discomfort pulls me right back into consciousness. What doesn't disturb is minor external noises, only what I feel disturbs it. My body awareness is acute and I am present - then I can enter the light space, it feels like my body just died, everything lets go.
Just wonder if this is the same space that one enters when we die?
This is NOT an out of body experience, I am completely in my body and it is me. This simply feels like another place that I am entering, completely, solidly me.
