Jane Dunlap - An overwhelming love for all who live
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Exploring Inner Space – Jane Dunlap
At that moment I was much too overcome with my immediate emotions to give a thought to their interpretation. Understanding came weeks later when I realised that …the many inanimate objects I had believed myself to be were symbols …. that I had actually felt the selfless love I had feared during the fourth LSD session; and that the feelings of intense aliveness were in reality a keen awareness of my overwhelming love for all who live.
The conviction that I no longer existed, which was indeed selflessness. I had already experienced many times, but had failed to recognise as such; hence it was presented repeatedly in increasingly forceful forms.
At last I realised that only after one forgets oneself enough to be carried away with love is one ready for a profound mystical experience.
