I felt my ego collapse. I could no longer define myself. I no longer felt separate from anything. That’s why I told you I wasn’t sure if I existed anymore. I felt all my identity dissolve. I thought about my personal relationships. I used to think that my Mother was just MY Mother. My friends were MY friends. But that quickly changed during the process. No longer was everything MINE or connected solely to ME. I used to connect to reality believing I was the only true connection. A few days later, I began to realize that I finally disconnected my identity to all my surroundings. My Mother was her own spiritual being. So was my friends, and even my cat. Nothing was mine, my connection to reality wasn’t through me anymore. It was through a greater whole.
