A person I have known very well and for many years told me of having 'experienced' such extraordinary happenings of feeling totally one with whatever was . However, to his own avowal, these had no transformative value whatsoever and his life went on being a succession of dramatic highs and lows. They did not trigger the desire to enquire further into himself and reality and he is still not able to put whatever happened to him into perspective. In his case such happenings seem to be but random events, however impressive, in the course of a life somewhat devoid of significance. One does not necessarily get such glimpses because one is ready. They may happen also in a very disturbed and depressed mind and leave a person unchanged.
