Something Better

Bernadette Roberts

Of one thing I was certain: all that appears to be, including myself, was not all there was, because there was something around that was better –- and I determined then to find it. In searching for this experience, I discovered that while I could not make it happen, I could nevertheless put myself in situations conducive to its recurrence and thus, alone and out of doors, lying on the grass under the tree in the hills, or floating on the sea, I became acquainted with this experience which I now recognize as fleeting moments of  no-self -- moments that would one day be the whole of time.

The Experience of No-Self
