Thank you Open. I am so grateful to have this connection and for the clarity you bring. I have experienced all that you write about, sometimes in the space of a single day. I question my sanity at times as the contrast between the connectedness/lightness and the separate/heavy feelings appears so vast. I am gradually becoming more accepting of the apparent chaos, of other people  and of myself, but there are times when I find it hard to engage with the outside world and just want to stay in bed and focus on my inner life. I presume this is a phase and the desired outcome is to be fully present in both?  In gratitude.
