I'll spare you the long story. The shorter version, about five years ago I had a lot of time on my hands. For lack of anything to do, I practiced meditation most of the day for several weeks. I had read about "kundalini rising" or "enlightenment" or whatever term is appropriate for what I think you call "acute spiritual emergencing." It wasn't my goal. I'm not sure I believed it was possible for me if I believed that it existed at all. However, much to my surprize, wonder and fear, it happened. Lights. Sound. Images. Knowing. Psychic experiences. Well being. It happened twice within a week. I had the answer to the question that had been plaguing me. For a long time, I was two people. Parts of me lived in the old person while I accepted that the new person who I had discovered, actually my "true self," was the one to be trusted. It changed my life, or my perception of it. For a long time, I tried to figure out how to get back there. I read. I asked other people who meditated. I tried through meditation. I chased it. I still believe that it's possible to attain and remain in that state, yet in many ways, I have become that state. However, I have come to realize that it can't be the goal in meditation. My experience. My observation. I'd certainly love to hear what someone else has experienced.
