Meditation: self, shared

The uniqueness of each person is unmistakable. The same is so for other beings. That’s easy to see in humans, or dogs or cats; but uniqueness is found in animals that flock or school also. They move together when threatened or migrating but when eating or finding a mate, each reveals distinction.

There are also unseen beings, or rarely perceived ones such as elementals or devas in the garden or natural spaces, water spirits and nagas. They and the natural environment that they are related to are unique. The Shawsheen River in Massachusetts was identifiably different from the Nashua or Concord Rivers, though all flowed through the town I grew up in. Because these rivers were largely left natural, their flow, wetlands, and habitat was unique.

We continue to explore “the self”; this time with all beings.
