  1. I've been oriented toward the transcendent as long as I can remember and I've made self-examination and practice life priorities for about forty years. A few months ago I was startled by a moment of intimate communion I could have never imagined. It was very direct and personal in a way that goes against our usual thinking in the west. In the past whenever I got close to anything scary I ran into the arms of the nearest Pop-Tart, becoming distracted in the simple sensation comforts of home. This time, however, I notice I'm actually physically uncomfortable when I'm not being as mindful as I can be in every moment. So I feel sort of on a precipice. Must I just dive into the Divine independently or is it okay to ask for advice from others further along in their journeys?
