Several months ago, during a meditative session I enjoyed an singular connection. I was suddenly linked to ALL THAT IS. Call it Cosmic Consciousness, call it whatever you choose. It was overwhelming and absolute; momentarily disorienting, then remembered. I was a Part of a Whole and that realization was ecstatic. My awareness encompassed 360 degrees rather than front and back, left and right, up and down. Every particle of me could “See”….and the view was inspiring.
This was not a dream or a vision. It was a state of being. I was aware of infinite strands, perhaps not physical, connecting me to every Other…and to their thoughts. You’d imagine that would be cacophonous, maddening. Yet it was harmonic. Somehow normal. It was the antithesis of loneliness. And it was inexpressibly comforting.
