Not another Matrix moment! What happens when your vision switches to seeing the very essence or code of manifested phenomena?
If ever I imagined the awakened state, it surely never included such funky bodily experiences. Or if there were funky experiences, they would have more of a celestial quality and not deal with the everyday operation of the five senses.
My awakening was very physical, very rooted in the body, and many changes that occurred were experienced in the body. Not only is the body not excluded from the process of spiritual awakening, the body is in fact its domain. So, let’s talk about yet another weird, unexpected and quite unsettling physical change that can happen when you awaken: Your eyes stop working.
That’s called blindness, right? Does spiritual awakening cause blindness? Well, in this instance…sort of but not exactly. Suddenly I could no longer see things, but only the code or essence of things. It’s as though the GUI just disappeared and all I saw was code (sorry, so very sorry to those of you who are not computer nerds). This started one day when I was riding my motorbike through the city and suddenly everything disappeared. The road disappeared and the bike disappeared, all the trees and lights and cars were gone. In their place was their code. Does that sound cool? Actually, it was just weird and scary.
After some months, the GUI reappeared, but now it also has the code behind it, kind of showing through it.
