Today has been quite interesting. Very busy with the day job. When I took time to look I noticed a shift. It seems like it is different and not different. If I look within (no me), pure awareness; consciousness is vast, powerful, peaceful, euphoric, almost intoxicating. Earlier in the day when I related the inner awareness with the outer appearance it seemed like awareness was directed towards the objective world with movement but no boundary. Just looking at the world like that invoked that same feeling as when looking within. Very energetic and peaceful. Later in the day the same exercise did not give the same feeling of movement. Inner and outer seemed like a more seamless awareness, oneness. There is a large energetic component to this. At times there is a lot of energy in the head, in the back, center, top. If there is time to relax and close my eyes there is a very deep, clear awareness. With that energy there seems to be a growing of the awareness and how it effects the relationship with the world. Mostly with the day job going on nothing much is really noticed. When looking it is mostly a subtle shift but sometimes more dramatic. Whatever the experience there is still a feeling of naturalness, no discomfort, no awkwardness.Great :) How it is going today?
If the me is unseen and If the dissolution of the boundary between awareness and appearance has anything to do with crossing the gateless gate... well then ok.Crossed the gateless gate? :)
El, much love and gratitude. Glad you stuck with me and pushed me to this point. Before actually focusing and answering your previous response I was feeling like an exhausted gerbil spinning on a wheel. Taking your points one at a time, in honesty, lead to a shift. Your comment to not get lost in concepts but look at experience was key. Well played.
Love and Light
