If I'm not speaking words with my mouth, I'm chanting in my mind now nearly all day, especially at home & at work (majority of my time) ... It's just a slightly audible, lips moving slightly type of thing. I have been chanting the mahamantra now for almost a year, but only for about 3 weeks have been chanting rounds of 108 ... the first few nights after beginning these rounds of 108, I had a dream of travelling down a road & each sign saying Hare, Krishna, Hare, Krishna, Hare, etc ... I woke from my dreamtime chanting. This happened consecutive nights, then I began waking at exactly 3:05 a.m. ... chanting ... I live in the USA, completely isolated from devotees, and have just this night spoke to my first devotee (in this lifetime) outside of delayed email inquiring about the local ISKCON group. Today, at work, I became extremely, nearly 'frighteningly' aware of the non-devotees in my life being estranged to me & (hard to describe), forming a subconscious resistance to me (tangible things as well). This includes 98% of : people from work, friends, recent-ended relationship partner, even family. I would like to know some devotees view on what I've described here & this is the only place I have any communication with ISKCON. Can anyone relate? I came home this evening threw myself on the floor in front of Krishna and begged for devotee communication, which happened instantly with a prabhuji from the USA, as well, as soon as I signed on here to ask about what went down today ... Any comment?
humble obeisances to Srila Prabhupada ... Hare Krishna!
