Great- Thank you for responding, because my awakening experience was
similar to yours in terms of timing and event sequence, in that I
had a life changing spiritual event occur in Spring of 1993, after
which I too felt that the goal of the sidhis had been accomplished.
(I have mentioned this before- a visit from Maharishi's master.)
However, although my perspective shifted dramatically at the time, I
was also still in the grip of my individual self. Externally many
big events then began to occur, though as you say, I was going
through a period of 'oozing'.
Then, in late 2004, I came upon this forum and connected with
someone here, who matched the profile of someone I had been looking
for and expecting to find for about 25 years. I didn't know who it
would be, but I had carried the profile of this person in my mind
all of that time.
In any case, after some brief interaction with them a little over a
year ago (Spring 2005), I was able to accomplish my final waking up,
catalyzed by not getting a job I had applied for, and complete
myself after a traumatic but brief birthing time of about an hour.
Let's just say that I witnessed my last boundary releasing. The body
went through a lot in that final release, but I calmly witnessed it
from within, and just let it go.
Since then, it has been a matter of just integrating, and continuing
growth. Like someone wise said, before awakening it is all seeking,
and after awakening it is all finding. Simplistic as that may be, it
is generally true. The one thing I must be careful about now are my
desires, because they have a funny way of all coming true, quckly.
