I have only just started learning about zen but throughout my life I have found myself slipping into a meditative state where I feel as if I am deeply connected to the universe as if I become my surroundings. This feeling is what sparked my interest in Buddhisim. Could i be experiencing Mushin?

Sometimes there are people who have congenial abilities from when they are born. They deeply feel connected to the world around, just like people in ages past who lives in a simpler world, speaking to flowers, talking to mountains, maybe your experience is of this type. Being in a society that is filled with judgement, based on reasoning, your experience is most precious. If your mind were not innocent, you could not experience this. Please treat this as something of great importance.
