First Deeksha Experience

As someone who has had a couple of intense spiritual experiences that made it hard for me to "do" everyday life, I had resisted receiving deeksha--even though I found the idea very attractive. I didn't feel like I was in a place where I could afford to take time out to go to whatever place it might take me if that was out of ordinary reality. My first experience with The Oneness Blessing was just that--a wonderfully subtle and very real experience of oneness with everything around me. This was accompanied by an equally subtle feeling of peace and well-being--a wonderful place to be. I always expected bliss to be something more spectacular, but I wouldn't be disappointed if this is it. – Martha Hale, writer
