You know your feeling of being lost, of no longer knowing yourself is just a sign of welcome development. For actually, you don’t exist. The prevalent idea that each person is a separate unit, a so-and-so, different and separated from anyone else is just an illusion. All minds are connected with the Universal Mind and and interconnected, and when you begin to realize this it is at first confusing. “Who am I? Where am I?” You are in everybody. That’s why many want to belong to a good friend or teacher at this time, for it is easier to see the connection with such a being than with anybody. And it is a safer way. But congratulate yourself that you don’t quite “find” yourself now. Who do you think I am? Nobody and everybody. But is this good? Yes, excellent, and besides: it is true. Truth is better than falsehood, even though falsehoods are sometimes comfortable to some…for a while at least.
I have no ambition of being “somebody” anymore. I enjoy being a hammock swinging with the punches, with the neighboring minds. The more ardent you keep at it, the better and greater are the minds you contact and swing with. You may even become impressed, and fascinated.
