I think it is quite amazing that you had an experience like that.
It was not my first experience. It's the best story though. I think the first time I heard it was at 17. I decided to experiment with a hallucinogenic substance (mushrooms?). I was thinking about my boyfriend who had just ended our relationship because he was a year older and was moving across the country to work. My mental conversation was about how much I missed him and it went round and round for a few months after the split until that moment when:
The voice said, "You don't have to do that."
All at once, in a split second, I realized that I didn't have to think the way I was thinking. I was free. I stopped obsessing and moved on. It was profound at the time.
There have been a few other instances. I'm glad that I found Anthony's work. I had no idea this was anything other than my vivid imagination and strange way of experiencing reality. I've always been a bit odd but felt certain that it's for my highest and best. I thought maybe my path in life is different from some people's. I feel like I'm on track in this life from the perspective of learning and growing. The rest of it? (Material Riches and status?) Not so much. I am not keeping up with the Kardashians nor am I trying to....if you know what I mean.
