Of all the people I encounter on the street day-to-day, I have never encountered myself; encountered Emma Mills the person in the way other people do. As in, from the outside.
It’s such an odd and interesting thing!
Despite not having bumped into myself, more and more as time passes, and spontaneously so, the other people I do encounter feel so very familiar. Strangers, new people and passers-by, there is such a strong feeling of ease and familiarity with them. It’s beautiful and surprising.
I wouldn’t describe myself as typically extroverted and so this spontaneous, seemingly ever-increasing feeling of familiarity, coupled with a deep recognition and knowledge of others is such a welcome happenstance. Another unexpected pleasant surprise that I feel at some level is connected to my meditation practice. The unexpected benefits keep unfolding and happening as the years go by.
Have you found something similar?
