The Essence of the Real - Part 2 May 7, 2002

So one really does become like a child before that Vastness. Once meditation is truly triggered, it keeps on happening spontaneously, over and over again, until this Self-culmination of profound awaken-ness occurs.

This is really an ecstatic topic: how one comes to be able to live so close to the edge of one’s life that even living day by day is like a near-death experience. One has become so thin, so translucent, so vulnerable that the Reality, the Cosmic Reality, can unveil itself through your Awakened Life. It is an excruciating State to live in. One is no longer kept safe and protected.

This continuity of spontaneous meditation weans us off the addiction on illusion, the addiction of imagination, the addiction of fear, the addiction of pleasure, the entire addiction of conceptual reality.

To be thrust from the conceptual into the Real is the essence of the Awakened Life.
