I am very curious about your trip, what exactly took place? I find that to be the amazing part of life, I really feel like I belong in that silence, but because of my fears I chose to remain in the rat race. The really funny thing is that the more insight and wisdom I gain, the more reclusive I become. Its like I am being pulled by my own brain back to nature. I am becoming very unsocial it seems, mostly because I am becoming increasingly irritated by the intense ignorance of people. Its almost as if, as I get over my own self imposed limitations, that I am becoming more aware of the present. This is definently the long walk to enlightenment...if thats even an appropriate term...maybe im just losing my mind.
