Cosmic Consciousness is something that develops gradually. It is simply expanded consciousness, meaning that one doesn't enter into it, one grows into it rather.

However, there are floods of this state that come as a revelation, a sudden experience that only lasts a short time coming from our spirit, as our spirit is already cosmic conscious by nature.

What you are experiencing could be a precursor to the dark night of the soul, but more likely an illusion cased by the ego conscious to make you believe you have 'reached somewhere'.

None of the above has not been the case for me.

And, I'm sure that was a typo - caused by the ego, I can fix that if you want .
