Thanks for writing this piece.

Also, meditation (vipassana) seems to reconnect me to it more closely. The purer and more focused my mind is, there more I can perceive the non-duality and perceive from the non-duality, which I think are both the same thing. There have been times when I have not meditated much, and I have suffered a lot more. I believe that I have become more separated from it at those times, because my mind is less focused and more preoccupied with fighting reality.
