I had an insight yesterday regarding “the event”.
The first thing that came into my awareness was a collection of unfamiliar voices speaking quietly, yet with excitement, saying over and over, “The Event! The Event! The Event!”
And then at some point during the next hour or so, I had a split-second flash that would best be described as orgasmic. Kind of intense and pleasurable.
These two things rolled around my brain for a little while longer, and then I put the pieces together – the event is akin to an orgasm.
A female orgasm.
The process begins with things being done (a long way in the past) that start the ball rolling, and for a long time, nothing appears to happen, but the energy is building.
And then the climax approaches, but still slowly, and the first hint that we’re reaching that stage is a tiny first taste of the final energy, but only for the tiniest, briefest of moments, and that’s what I believe I experienced today – that first tiny hint.
So quick and so subtle, that you could miss it.
But then the energy recedes a little, and yet all the things everyone is doing keep the energy building.
And then there is another, slightly longer taste. Then it recedes.
Then it builds and there’s a taste. Then it recedes. Then there’s another, slightly bigger taste.
And so it goes. Back and forth in a gentle but ever-building cycle.
And the closer we get the more sure we are that this will be it, and then it’s not, and we’re all tensed, ready and waiting… and nothing. Damn it.
But if we get frustrated and try to force it, it just blocks the flow. So we have to relax, be willing to let it go, and wait for the energy to build up again, and learn to enjoy the tastes.
And ironically, that’s what will make it happen faster, and with more intensity – letting go and relaxing into the process. Hard, I know.
And, as with female orgasm, it’s almost impossible to know which peak will be the one that tips us over the edge, but so long as we keep doing what we’re doing, then it will happen with certainty, eventually.
All the right pieces come together, the intensity is sufficient, the timing is right and then BAM!
And that’s why I think no-one can tell us when the event will be, because no-one honestly knows. But they do know it will happen.
I also think that’s why it has been described as being ecstatic, intense, a better feeling than we could ever imagine.
If you’ve ever had an orgasm, that feeling really is beyond anything we’ve known, just for that split second where we are pure energy. And the more practised we are, the longer we can stay in that energy.
And if that’s what this event is going to be, what fun we’re going to have!
