Here is a tale I have repeated (and an experience I have undergone) many times in the past:
Recently I had a lovely massage--no bliss came through, but my physical body felt truly revived. But--next morning, during my practice session, the bliss was there--much stronger than usual, flowing sweetly throughout the entire system
That evening I attended a concert. The music relied heavily on clashing cymbals and thundering drums--just the kind of sound I love. My body seemed to function as a sounding board, experiencing each note as a delightful bliss sensation within. How splendid, I thought. Just the way things should be.
But--the following morning I felt ill with a familiar stomach reaction. Oh, no, I thought,
not again--not the same old pattern--bliss followed by pain.
As always, I wondered why? Why after so long was ecstasy still accompanied by agony?
And then a thought came to me--often when others ask me why they are having negative symptoms with their Kundalini experience, I reply that their systems are not yet ready to handle this higher level of energy, and that only with time will their symptoms abate. Now I too must consider that the same holds for me--sometimes I still experience more energy that I can "safely" handle without an accompanying reaction of pain.
As for me, I would not forego the pleasure in order to avoid the discomfort. I am still convinced that those of us undergoing such experiences contribute to the overall raising of vibrations for our species as we together move into a higher evolutionary state.
