Tonight, minutes ago as I was walking home from a Boy Scouts meeting, I was pseudo-meditating. I was mostly thinking about my relationship with the Kami, and what people would think about a Westerner practicing Tao-Buddhist-Shinto, since my Japanese and Chinese blood isn't readily evident. As I was mulling over these things, I stared up into the sky.
At first I thought it was a satellite, but as i watched I realized it was a shooting star. a Big one at that. I watched it soaring across the heavens, set against a beautiful background of stationary stars. The thing had to last for at least seven seconds. It had a beautiful trail behind it too.
It was such a profoundly spiritual experience, I just had to bow and say "Domo arigatou gozaimasu, Kami-sama!"
So what other moments have your Gods revealed themselves in ways you didn't expect?
