spiraling motion

Sometimes when I sit or lie down with my eyes closed and my attention turned inward, I start feeling a subtle spiraling motion building in my head or around my spine.  When I follow that movement with awareness, it gets stronger, and brings a growing sense of internal spaciousness, and the feeling that the dense edges of my body evaporate and that I’m expanding in all directions. It’s an incredibly pleasurable sensation. If I let it unfold for a while, I catch a tiny little glimpse of what it might be like to be a spinning galaxy in an expanding universe.  [Rose galaxy photo by NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team]
