Oceanic. I was peacefully inconsequential.

Mystical Experiencer:  Female in mid-fifties
Current location:  United Kingdom
Age at time of experience:  23

When I looked at the world it was as if I saw everything was connected with silver string. Like a spider's web, each string was imperfect and yet perfect, because it was natural rather than artificially made. I did not exactly “see” this string, more sense it perhaps? Like a huge matrix everything affected everything else. But not in any oppressive way, just a joyful way.

I realised that I was a part of the universe, in the same way that the leaves and the stars were. It was as if I realised that we were made of the same stuff. This sounds a bit Desdirata I know, but it was the realisation that everything was one. Deeply peaceful, as if I had seen what was behind life and it had an ultimate meaning. I expected it to “wear” off and was delighted when the feeling was there when I still woke up and lasted like a few days. Oceanic. I was peacefully inconsequential.
