A close dear friend has just had 'An Experience.'
When she was telling me about it she ran out of words - unexplainable.
And I got the message.
"The Truth cannot be said..." says Lao Tzu. And it can be heard.
When I have something happen that I cannot explain - even to myself,
after floating in it for a while, I am interested in checking it out -
both for me, and so I can attempt to share it.
We don't have many in the West who have had the experience, or who have been
able to anywhere near share it while they are in the experience.
In the East it has happened more often, so they got good at attempting to
explain the unexplainable. So I check out what I remember the sages saying
on the subject. Confirming.
When a close friend has the non-experiencing experience it is fun.
First, delight - for them. Second, yet another confirmation - for me.
Third, a warm fuzzy feeling that if it can 'happen' to us, it can happen to
Although I have had unconditional awareness as my priority all my life,
when an 'It' happened there was a realisation that it did not reveal itself
through anything I did, rather, it was my not-doing - just being alert and
available. So it felt/feels like a gift, a blessing.
And that is not an adequate description.
Neither she nor I had an exceptional circumstance at birth.
Our parents were not virgins, or dreamt of Elephants, or anything like that.
Just normal. So if an awakening level can happen to us, it can happen to
It is true that we all seem to be born with different levels of aptitude,
for different subjects, but to me, when I hear of someone 'popping' I feel
it is possible for anyone - who wants it enough. Quite a few people have
written to say they are having the unexplainable happen to them lately.
Now this is what is interesting to me: it is so, so simple, yet with so many
'seekers' so few who will listen/hear.
And it seems that it has always been so.
We have written about this many times, and it does not seem to sink in.
All you have to do is listen without the mind. "Those who have ears..."
Don't try to understand because it is not understandable by/with the mind.
The mind does not have the capability/capacity to understand beingness.
In fact it is the barrier. So not agreeing, and not disagreeing. If you do
either, agree or disagree, the message is not going in past the mind.
Just listen. Let it in.
So here is what you do. If you can, get as close as you can to the person
who is in 'The State' while they are sharing - but don't worry if they are
not present - this state is not dependant on space or time.
You can catch it anywhere.
Then, when they share do not use your mind to attempt to understand - it is
not understandable - even to them - it is of another
See if you can 'feel' what they are attempting to share - remembering, they
do not 'understand' it either. Feel. Just to get you down out of the head,
try using your heart, belly, then let them go as well. Be as open and not
knowing as you possibly can.
It is there - already, just needs to be blended with.
If you want it enough...
