I recently read 'The Power of Now" and "A New Earth: Awakening to your Life's Purpose" by Eckhart Tolle. I really feel like the past few days I have been awakening and becoming more and more conscious. It was great until I went into public and felt.. just bad. There was road rage and rough energy all around! Everyone looked grey to me, it was very strange. That was yesterday, and today I had an experience with my "pain body" although I was aware of it I had to meditate for an hour for it to go away. I was a witness to it but it was difficult to put away! I really tried to stay in the present and embrace being. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this? and if it is normal to have difficulty along their journey? Or if awakening isn't a process and you just awaken and that's it no more suffering?
