Judith Blackstone says we need to "inhabit fully our own separate physical body..." I believe we do inhabit our physical body -- that is a given. Our physical reality is not separate from self, it's an expression of self. What we call our environment is also not separate from self. We are part of it. I believe all is one "single expanse of fundamental consciousness" of which each of us is an expression. Some are aware of that and accept that; some don't. For me accepting that is meaningful and satisfying. It orients me in regards to the big picture. I have had the experience of my filters and projections dissolving and me seeing and relating to the other as the person he or she is. That experience was enhanced by me awareness that we are one. What helps me accept fully the experience of the present moment is my knowing that only in the present is there aliveness, and knowing that it is in my experiencing of that awareness that I experience aliveness.
