Could it be there is no other sides beyond the ones we imagine? All the seeing was yours, as the seeing itself. If the little guy trying to hide is known in your seeing, who are you; the made up little guy, or the very source of the seeing itself?
We, as the picture of ourselves we call, "ego," call the greater seeings we experience, "glimpses," after we submerge back into our believed in self images.
I argue against the idea of integrating the experience, as I see this as finding a means to accommodate a more true seeing to fit into our false seeing, which likely is why some of us seek these glimpses in the first place. While the ego might make us feed ourselves first, a greater seeing in a given tense, may show us that it is precisely the proper time to feed the perceived one across the table.
The ego is pretty much a personal image that is set up between an imagined version of past, and an equally imagined future, made up of imprecise deductions. Only the present which seemingly sits in between the two false imaginings holds any actuality. The trip that blasts the unreal perceptions from the foreground and leaves us standing in the eternal now could be trying to show us the dream we call the waking state.
What we have become started with the acquisition of language based thinking. The blast of presence, wherever and however it arises in experience, shows more of what's true than does what living in the soup of descriptions the ego identity takes as its world. The trick may be to not become a replacement for what was not genuine in the first place.
Can becoming cease? Can we see from unchanging perceiving what seems to be so, and act accordingly? The seemingly so will continue to unfold, but we needn't be its victims. It's all in the perspective we choose. Our versions of a somebody will of necessity be swept in the currents of time. As the watching, are we ever wounded? Yes, these bodies all die. Free of the imposed identity of the ego, we see we'll be fine. The seeing, being now, is always on the scene before any thought, in and of separation.
