The process of ceasing
to identify yourself with a location or definition and gradually
assuming the beingness of a larger whole is called integration.
Consider when you feel the flesh of your hand. Do you feel each
cell that makes up your hand, or do you feel an integrated sensation
of the entire hand? What if you were able to relocate the boundaries
of the location or the definition you consider you? Do you end
at the skin? Or do you extend beyond? What do you believe?
To convey an experience of expansion and integration.
Results: Insights, reconciliation.
The following is done as a guided meditation. Either have someone
read it to you slowly, or listen to Harry Palmer guiding this
exercise on this MP3
(Go through entire meditation three times.)
• Get some impression of the space you occupy.
• How far out does it extend? (pause)
• As effortlessly as you can, make your
space extend in all directions. (pause)
• Include everyone and everything. (pause)
• Now get the impression that you contain
the space you have just created. (pause)
• Feel where you come from. (pause)
for after the exercise: Where do you come from? And before that?
