In Search of Integration

It is a constant idea of mine; that behind the cotton wool is hidden a pattern; that we — I mean all human beings — are connected with this; that the whole world is a work of art; that we are parts of the work of art. Hamlet or a Beethoven quartet is the truth about this vast mass that we call the world. But there is no Shakespeare, there is no Beethoven; certainly and emphatically there is no God; we are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself.

Virginia Woolf

I continue to search for deep connections within the world that contains all of us, to decrease the false separations that I have created as my persona, the idea that there is an isolated self that must survive in order to have meaning. The only meaning my life in this body needs to have is that I live as an integral part of the world as whole, making everyone’s existence in the world more integrated and free from suffering as I am capable of doing. I am still working out my path to relieving and reducing my sense of entitlement to material possessions and safety. There is no actual security or continuity in life except that which is enforced at a cost to others or an increased feeling of isolation and alienation from my true place in the world.
