The idea expressed in this quote touched me deeply because just a few short years ago my mind was stretched so far that I did a complete 180-degree turn in my view of life, self, and the Universe.  I experienced a profound "awakening" to the wider reality and higher self.

For most of my life, I had been an atheist/agnostic scientist type with absolutely no spiritual beliefs.  In early 2014 a dramatic shift began.  I'd been in a protracted "dark night of the soul", a depression that I couldn't kick.  My self-worth was in the toilet, and I had sunken into a deep dark pit of despair.

I thought I should be able to fix myself but after many years passing and no change I finally surrendered and sought professional help.  Less than a year after starting counseling something clicked and suddenly, my depression dissolved, and an overwhelming feeling of fearlessness, confidence, and empowerment came over me.

Then strange and wondrous things began happening — enhanced intuition, constant synchronicities, a heightened sense of the beauty of everything around me, and lots of good luck.  Everything fascinated me.  I started studying all sorts of topics with a burning passion — like I was on a quest — except I didn't know why.

After three or four months of constant magic that couldn't possibly be explained scientifically, I finally threw my hands up in the air and surrendered to the Universe.  “OK, OK, I give up. The Universe isn't what I thought, not with all this divine magic going on.  I'll bet it has something to do with spirituality, and I intend to get to the bottom of it! ” I said in my head.

So my quest continued, and I turned my studies towards spirituality and metaphysics.  It wasn't long before I had a completely new understanding of myself and the Universe, and it resonated deeply with me.

Since then the divine magic has continued unabated, and I continue to feel graced by the Universe.  I experience frequent moments of utter bliss where I break down and cry like a baby.  I've continued my spiritual/metaphysical studies, and my understanding continues to grow.

What we are is utterly magnificent and with this knowing nothing will ever be the same again!
