“There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe. The horizontal threads are in space. The vertical threads are in time. At every crossing of the threads, there is an individual, and every individual is a crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects not only the light from every other crystal in the net, but also every other reflection throughout the entire universe.”
~ Rig Veda
Everything in existence are various manifestations of the same absolute consciousness.
Our concept of separateness is merely illusion (or delusion) based in ignorance of never yet experiencing this transcendental truth for ourselves.
Transcending the illusion of self is one of the basic goals of advanced forms of meditation, but can also be achieved to varying extents through taking time to simply be present in the moment: present with self, present with the environment, present with breath, and all the stress, worries, and mental modifications cast aside for even a few moments of peace and silence.
May we all continue to strive for greater clarity and understanding, and an openness of spirit to experience for ourselves that amazing interconnectedness of life – to release ourselves from the bondages of our own ignorance.
Have a lovely Wednesday! xo
