No matter what country you are in, we look up at the same moon in the sky from different vantage points. Along the same lines, the effects of one person's actions have an effect on so many others they have never seen. This makes each being very important and insignificant all at once. What you do has a direct effect upon me.
I have always had the desire to merge with the All, yet the have the fear of losing myself completely into it. This feeling of being joyfully submerged appears when I am immersed in the dream state, meditation, and sometimes an awesome yoga practice or spinning class. Immersion is the closest I get to being present in a body and disappearing into the void simultaneously. At other times, I absorb the undefinable feelings into my body. Thinking, perhaps that I am tired...I remember that I am like a sponge, and could be picking up on many things surrounding me.
Endings and beginnings. Endings and beginnings. It seems that life just cycles this way. Winter becomes Spring.
