I’ve explored my migraines in relation to spirituality in this blog before. (See “Beautiful Tunnel Vision” at http://thunarsdottir.livejournal.com/8624.html). Today, I want to explore what happened with my migraine this past Tuesday. I was in Claremont at the Claremont School of Theology Convocation and the celebrations of two great new beginnings: the launch of te first interfaith university, Claremont Lincoln University and the addition of the Jain community to the consortium that is CLU. I had awakened with a migraine. I took ibuprofen, but of course it made no dent in the pain. I wanted to be at the celebrations, so I went with trepidation and sat down in a seat toward the back of the theatre. As I sat there, I discovered something that was later reinforced during an in-class meditation. Part of this discovery was the awareness that I have had the same experience many times before…without realizing that something special was happening.
Here is the link to the rest!
