DISCOVERING THE SPACE BETWEEN YOUR THOUGHTS
“At the side of the everlasting why, is a yes, and a yes, and a yes.” - E.M. Forster
I was once told that the purpose of meditation is to lose yourself in the space between your thoughts; to achieve complete mental lightness; to find the separation between body and mind.
The space between your thoughts.
The space between.
Have you ever focused on the space between your thoughts? On the space that exists around your body? The space in which you exist?
Focus on the energy pulsing through you. Within and without. Feel your energy field. What does it feel like? What do you imagine it feels like without putting words to it?
Then expand outwards.
What do you feel like within the greater space of the room you’re in. The city. The country. The continent. The world. The Universe.
When the material dissolves and all that’s left is energy, what do you feel? Who are you? What are you?
If you dissolve yourself down to this moment in time, this singular moment, what exists?
Your taxes? Your bills? Your overdue rent? The person not texting you back? The Kardashians?
This moment, then the next moment, the next moment, and the next…
Eternal life. Rebirth. Karmic cycles. Love. Infinite compassion, understanding and awareness.
Is stuff like this worth thinking about?
