this exercise we imagine we are growing bigger and bigger.
At first we are just giants. Then we grow so large we are
bigger than the trees and the buildings. In fact, now the
trees and the buildings are inside us. We swallow the whole
sky up and the clouds are moving inside this vastness that
we have become. After a while we are so big that the whole
world is in us instead of the other way around. There is a
comforting feeling that comes with us being so much bigger
than life, bigger than the world and its problems. We reach
ourselves all the way out. We are absolutely unlimited. Remember,
the mind cannot tell the difference between an imagined and
a real experience. Naturally you will afterward reject this
as a real happening, but the mind will register the feelings
of "oneness," of "being in charge" and
feeling expansive and at peace.
