The sky was turning more and more crimson, as the sun began to descend. Nathan went back to the high dune to watch the sunset. Once there, he had an open mind to the power of the images. He remarked that he had overcome hunger and that he was in a state of higher awareness. He could now concentrate with ease, and felt at peace with what was waiting for him. Daylight was coming to an end, and the dunes were taking on the color of dusk. Nathan associated this phenomenon of nature with all his feelings. He not only felt in perfect communion with the sun, but equally with the whole universe. He perceived intensely the connection between all the elements of the universe, and of all as a whole. Feeling blissful, he lay down on the sand.
We are connected with everything and everyone, but there are moments where this connection is so clear! Where we can actually feel ourselves blend in to all that’s around. It is not necessarily a “feeling”, but more a state of Being, where we feel like we are the sun, the mountains, the ocean, the trees, everything, and the “feeling” is an immensely blissful one. These are the moments where we are truly in reality, and where we’re truly ourselves, our essence, …where we’re truly “aware”.
