No Sidewalls to Be Seen
True Story by Susan Kramer
Sitting on the couch with hubby facing me sitting on a chair, we had just finished our evening meditation. In the quiet moments after coming back to everyday consciousness I realized we are not separate from each other at all in mind, and I felt part of one and all.
It was such a relief, and felt joyful. My personal sidewalls had come tumbling down.
This realization had actually begun to build up a couple of weeks previously. During a discussion with a friend holding another point of view I suddenly sided with the other side of the coin. I felt and understood what the other was thinking, and empathized so much that both points of view became okay in my mind. I felt like there was just one of us instead of me and the other.
Now, a few weeks on, I feel confident this was a transformation in my way of thinking. I realized we have the choice to think we’re involved in conflict, or an observer looking broadly at other points of view.
We have the choice to hold rigid viewpoints or be relaxed like water flowing and exploring all openings in every direction.
I’m feeling like a being whose mind stretches to include everyone around me in awareness. Maybe my mind is actually directing my physical actions for the best outcome all the time. That’s what my life seems like.
I’ve always wanted to meet an alien, a being from another planet. I think our mind can stretch with unlimited possibilities and just thinking I have no sidewalls I’ve left open the possibility that I communicate instantly with others (including aliens) regardless of time, place, space. That in the long run we are an important part of all that is, past, present, future, wrapped up into this everlasting moment.
No sidewalls to be seen
Blocking me and another
From each other.
