    Have you ever felt presence of God or direct connection with God?

    Did you ever feel the presence of some divine power around you? Have you ever been in direct contact with God?

    No. I spent 25 years in Pentecostal churches as a "bible believing born again spirit filled Christian" surrounded by people claiming to feel God's presence, a direct touch of God, "falling under the spirit", etc, etc. Me, I never once felt a thing, heard a voice, saw a vision, nothing. I have left the Church now and what I do feel now is liberation. Some will say I can't have ever been a true Christian in the first place then......

      DH, an insightful answer, as always. Perhaps a lot of people were never truly Christians. It seems ego gets in the way, too often. 60 yrs ago, I wasn't a Christian, even though my mother was a Southern Baptist preacher's daughter.

    Yes, yes, and uncertain about your 3rd question.

    I have felt the presence of God many times. Each of these times was a very spiritual event. All of them involved the cessation of ego, because ego is the false self which separates us from God.

    Perhaps the most startling such event involved spiritual counseling involving question about generosity toward others. Something in that spiritual session completely eliminated ego for a few brief moments. I found myself fully able to see again for the first time in eons -- all without physical eyes. Some people have this happen with trauma, drugs or surgery (a combination of both).

    Other events involved miracles -- cause-and-effect "coincidences."

    Each of these speaks to our spiritual nature. After all, God created us in His image and likeness (Gen.1:26), and He is not Homo sapiens.

    Yes, my Brother.

    Both in sleep and in the waking world. First of all, in some of my Hubs, I have touched on the necessaries: Gratitude, purity, selfless service or soulful self-giving .. human nature does not and cannot grow with giving of one's inner self to others.

    There are also necessities like receptivity, assimilation, silence, that is to say, quiet times that help us, like in the early hours of morn or night. Then nature is at its most peaceful.

    A deep inner cry, aspiration or yearning for God is paramount, without which nothing can be gained. Once, through self-effort and accompanied by Grace, one does all that one is supposed to do, then Grace will come at it's own time and choosing.

    There is a chapter in my book, (Chpt 3), available on amazon.com, My Guru, Sri Chinmoy: Life And Teachings. There I talk about spiritual experiences in great detail. God's force or power or Grace or Light, call it what one wills, comes into a receptive heart through prayer and meditation. The inner vessel must be receptive, and for this inner purity is essential. Again, one will receive only in so far as the inner vessel can hold. Grace can also be sudden and may be felt anywhere. Still, it is always the inner preparation that will eventually lead to this.

    The Spirit manifests through peace, love, tears or joy ... and infinitely more. It cannot be contained. What varies most is the depth of the experience. Sometimes it's strong and lasting, and at other times very short. It is never painful, never sensational and encourages love not only for the individual experience, but for humanity itself. Read my book, if you can. Chpt 13, the chapter on Purity, is essential for those of us wishing to receive His Grace.
