But then I noted for the sake of any supreme being who might be listening, "But I don't want to die yet."
As I sat down to eat my sandwich, I started feeling weird--my heartbeat felt labored. Not fast, just heavy and thudding and noticeable. And my breathing felt a little troubled...and then I felt kinda spacey (not so strange since I hadn't eaten much all day). I thought, "OK, maybe I am gonna die now. Heart attack? Stroke?"
But, neither, I'm still here. I walked very slowly home, and to be on the safe side I skipped Bikram.
When you don't require anything from the world or from God, when you don't desire anything, when you don't strive for anything, don't expect anything, the divine will enter you, unasked and unexpected.
