Another reason that meditation is so important to me is because it’s a recognition that there are other realms of consciousness that we have the capacity and the ability to tap into, just underneath the chaos of our thoughts and the filter of our senses. There is a place within all of us that is just pure awareness, that exists not in reference to anything else, that is a spacious non-dual void beyond thought. I think this part of us that exists beyond thought is who we really are, I think it’s the essence of who we are, and the essence of all things.
