Part 4 – Shadow Cat
I remember just standing there and looking at all these objects and just trying to absorb all of this, thinking, “This is perfect. I never want to go to sleep because if I go to sleep I’m going to lose this. I’m so tired but I have to stay up as long as I can.” There was only one light on behind me on the bookshelf and Eric’s cat had come up from behind me but I didn’t know that. And I saw this shadow on the floor with the two pointy ears. I looked at the shadow and it felt as alive to me as the cat, and I didn’t even connect that the two were related. It was almost like it wasn’t that the cat was behind me and the shadow was hitting it and it was creating the shadow. It was that the shadow and the cat were in a symbiotic relationship and they were both these living things, just as separate but just as connected. I looked at the shadow and it was his cat but this completely different thing but I knew they were shared somehow. And I just sat there and experienced its shadow, almost as if it was just a different form of his cat, just as alive but different, and I was like, “Oh wow.”
“I was just experiencing this living shadow… It didn’t even occur to me that there was supposed to be this cat connected to it.”
Then finally, I started to think in normal terms and I started to think, “Oh wait, this isn’t a thing by itself; this is supposed to be connected to something.” It was like I had to think about that in logical terms and then I had to put it back in a space that I would understand it if I wasn’t in the In-Between. And I thought, “Oh, there’s supposed to be a cat here. This isn’t this life form by itself. There’s supposed to be something else.” That’s when I turned around and I saw his cat and then I was like, “Yeah. Okay, that’s how it’s supposed to work. He is making the shadow. The shadow doesn’t just walk around by itself.” That is how I experienced it when I first saw it. It didn’t even occur to me that there was supposed to be this cat connected to it. I saw the shadow and it was just perfect and I was just experiencing this living shadow.
And so I remember looking at his cat and experiencing him in a completely different way and just going around in a state of total wonder. Everything was alive. Everything had this life to it. Nothing was inanimate. It wasn’t just these objects made of molecules and atoms. You could feel this different life behind them. They were there, but everything was connected and you could feel the connection of everything perfectly. And it was just this completely extraordinary state where everything made sense and you didn’t even have to question. Before you could even form a question, you knew the answers and they were just there in your mind and you’re just like, “Okay!” And it was just like being alive for the first time and completely different than any kind of state you could ever shift into, including during meditation. It was just completely different. Your mind wasn’t there and the babbler wasn’t there and you were there and everything else was there. There was just this communication of flow. Everything just made sense. It was just perfect. And everything had its memory and you were just connected to that. Nothing felt disjointed. Everything felt in perfect harmony and in perfect rhythm. It was separate but it wasn’t. You could feel the unity in everything so perfectly.
When we first heard about Eric’s experience, we knew it was something that had to be shared, that there were other people out there that wanted to go beyond the mundane and experience life and the universe in a whole new way. The “In-Between” is an alternate reality that you can access right now – with the right training and armed with the knowledge shared by those who’ve been there before.
