When I breathe with the leaves of the big oak trees, I become the freshness of these leaves, and the joy of their green color.” In fact, this is possible, because perception is made of subject and object of perception, the perceiver and the perceived. When you are really in touch, you become what you touch with your perception. When you see peace, you become peace. When you touch stability, you become stability. The perceiver and the perceived are not separate entities.
