    When do you feel most alive?

    When the mountain tops are covered with snow...under a brilliant blue sky, and a warm Chinook breeze is gently blowing in my face. It doesn't get much better than that. :0)

    Every morning when the Sun kisses the earth with a new promise for a new day that makes me feel that I am alive too. Then the sunsets in evenings makes me feel that yes, I am still alive.
    My son with his every smile makes me feel that I am alive.
    Every little hub when i finish writing makes me feel that I am alive.
    This are the times I do feel most alive. Its for me an everyday effort to feel alive.

    In the nature of any kind, on the ocean's shore facing the approaching waves, on the top of a mountain holding the rock not to be swept away by mighty wind, in the middle of endless, hot and lifeless desert under the starry night sky....everywhere where I feel to be the part of the natural order of things...

    There have been many moments in my life when I have been excited, delighted, thrilled, warmly expanded or had heightened awareness.

    The most alive experiences have been when my Higher Self, an aspect of who I am beyond the personality, has communicated to or through me.

    This has happened in waking dreams and visions, in the inner voice, and in times when I surrendered the will of ego and trusted.

    They have been moments of supreme joy and bliss, without drugs or dependency on a teacher or training. Not self-empowered, but Self-empowered.

    These are experiences when I step up to the challenge at hand and meet it with steady knowing and confidence. The aliveness arises for the moment because I let go of the constraints of the ego, and allow it.

    It is this constant presence of equanimity that I most long for as written in the Hub: How to Experience the Bliss of Equanimity.

      Hey, I thought you were hanging it up for the night and were embarking upon a move? Or, are you leaving the travel plans to Kati, while you chat with us? :0)

      Ha ha, you caught me. Well, you probably don't want to know the whole story, but in a nutshell 'I couldn't resist' making one more post before closing the laptop. Now we are with wifi, in Rothenburg. With us, plans are always subject to change!

    When I am with my family.

    The closeness and warmth feeling from my family members makes me full of life. It is the happiness and joy anyone can asked for.

    I feel most alive when I am closest to God.

    There have been a few times in my life when this occurred. I got goosebumps all over and a miracle would happen.

    One time in 1971, I was in the middle of a conversation talking about spiritual things, and suddenly I found myself outside of my body with vivid visual awareness of my surroundings. Surprisingly, I could not feel my body at all. And only last week (41 years later) did I finally realize why that spiritual gift did not persist. You see, after look all around, and even taking in the tiny details like the cracks in the pink stucco of the outside of the building, I realized that the light from the nearby parking lot was passing right through "me" -- that "I" was not casting a shadow. In that moment, I was pulling the blindfold of darkness back over my spiritual eyes. That blindfold was "ego" -- the false, mortal self. The "self" that remains vulnerable and needs defending. The "self" that says, "Notice me."

    I've had many other miracles in my life, but 6 years after that one, I experienced my most public miracle -- comparable to that of Moses parting the sea. I detail this in my "Anatomy of a Miracle."

    I've spent most of my life trying to understand what happened that day and how to get closer to God so that I can make that moment of "everlasting life" in 1971 a permanent state.

      Lone77star, your story is wonderful. Responding is not easy with words, and I know you are not looking for recognition. I look forward to reading 'Anatomy of a Miracle' if it is in a hub, and give you a hug or a high five over the internet.

    I feel most alive after my first  breath when I wake up. It tells me I'm still alive.
