      But not really – they made a lasting change.  And more come along eventually.  In the time between, there may be a “dark night of the soul”.

      Have you ever experienced
      a time when you heard or
      read something that struck
      you like a thunderbolt of
      new understanding - and it
      upgraded your perspective
      about an aspect of life (or
      life in general) to a whole
      new level of clarity?

      Like panning for gold, these
      nuggets flow within our
      consciousness, just beneath
      the surface, and they catch
      our eye at the most propitious
      times in life.

      When we are searching for
      an answer or seeking some
      ineffable intuitive understanding
      about a burning 'question',
      we are particularly attentive
      and meditative at times.

      In these times, the sparkle
      of the nugget will catch our
      eye and we will then own a
      new understanding.

      The reports of the benefits
      of meditation include those
      nuggets of a new calm, an
      improved efficiency and
      productivity at work, a new
      tolerance for and patience
      with other people who formerly
      caused us distress, control of
      a destructive habit, and even
      a new graceful and creative
      worry-free approach to
      everything from cooking to
      dancing to our favorite sport.

      The mother lode of meditation
      is full awakening and enlightenment
      in which a startling rush of new
      'wisdom' comes into consciousness,
      and now the teaching of all the
      masters and contemporary teachers
      of present-day enlightenment now
      resonate and sparkle with profound
      new truth.

      Welcome to The Mystic Path.

      One Love,

      Jeff

      Hi Aideen, Sometimes they (the nuggets) seem to have made a strong enough impact to effect a lasting change, but as Sean pointed out, we sometimes forget them.

        Hi Aideen,

        Sometimes they (the nuggets) seem
        to have made a strong enough impact
        to effect a lasting change, but
        as Sean pointed out, we sometimes
        forget them. For example, a drinking
        binge followed by a massive hangover
        may cause the drinker to swear off
        alcohol...but then, as Jimmy Buffet
        sings, "If I don't die by Thursday,
        I'll be roaring Fiday night."

        You may, of course, consider the
        hangover a dark night of the soul,
        and in that case your premise
        holds up.

        Love,

        Jeff
