This was a good post , I really liked reading it.

I've been living more and more single-pointedly with my focus on God over the last 2 years or so, and I have experienced similar things to what you are describing.

I grew up in a mostly Christian household and, After truly living with bhakti, I began to experience more and more the 'kingdom of God' that Jesus spoke of making me realize the universalness of God.

Glad to see other "average joes" have experienced similar things.

God bless.
