Thanks to Rick and Abha for their inspiration.

When the wind blows hard and butterflies leave, the Spirit of the Great Heart reaches out, calls your name, Touches you, gently, like moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake.
Somehow 'the world out there' still seems something apart, separate; the Awareness that the mind does this can make us question even this 'far out' assumption of separateness, like everything the mind does is somewhat erroneous anyway so why have a belief about any of it's nonsense.
The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, an observable fact, we don't need a 'belief' about that, it is so, just as Source animates All, as Oneness without explanation; only the mind divides, judges, condemns, invents' enemies ', plays out it's limited script of inheritance/conditioning like a two-bit actor who can't remember the Real lines so inappropriately ad libs and flubs the present moment. Would you bet Your life on 'that', or THIS!
Reach out and Touch! --George

"Changes-Turn and face The Stranger" in innocent wonderment, and recognize your Self for the first time.
It seems part of the 'confounding' is the shifting Faces of the Absolute, nothing is withdrawn or lost, just different shades being revealed within the span of the Absolute and it's embodiment as Shakti.
Certainly Shakti reflects the Absolute's initiatory Face in embodiment just as awareness of spacious consciousness reflects the 'ground' of all existence, and at the human level is the doorway to deeper levels of realization by the ability to be aware of 'the thinker watching thought' aspect of mind.
The 'non-conceptual awareness' aspect seems more accessible as "direct perception" in a human mind; it may be a prerequisite to the possibility of having Shakti activated/awakened.
Very peculiar how Shakti is so ignored in spiritual writings, one wonders if the secret ancient mystery schools had special techniques for accelerating the rising of this force in certain humans. Otherwise, these days, STAY PREPARED 'for ye know not the hour......' George

Let's rap about this when come down from Vancouver to meet other members in Larkspur Sept 9, and the SF intensive Sept 11, and public meeting Sept. 13; following is a 'felt inspiration'.
I Am That-(Shakti) not just 'me' aware of it, I AM the Fire. It's not 'George' watching the Shakti move itself around, 'George' is subsumed, the Shakti IS, and 'grist for the mill' to anything that blocks this realization, especially the 'me'.
Why did I keep thinking that 'I'm' "watching" That ( thereby making IT into an object when the insight should be that the mind can't go there so leave space for it to be as IS), then the apperception: I Am That!
This was inspired by re-reading "A Pathless Path" in David's "Writings", well worth reviewing if the above resonates. George

The 'awareness' aspect of the Absolute seems able to transmute wayward thoughts into an increased intensity of Shakti through Attentiveness rather than just being an isolated feature of the 'non-active Absolute, once the Shakti has been activated in a person. Without a realization of Shakti the 'non-perceptual' would be the only conscious manifestation of the Absolute to manifest, but the 'Two' aspects are working together nicely to mutual benefit in redirecting needless mental/reactive mind activity into an increased 'purity' of Shakti (AND awareness too) giving it more 'space' to 'enjoy itself'. This reflects a ONENESS of the "two aspects" as a common unified Source and on a practical level it is putting to good use workable techniques to enhance 'self-awareness'.
These are observations as I feel my way along, not "unmovable dictations", the words are so hard to come by-George

Until there is a transmission or an awakening it is understandably hard to relate to words on paper or the spoken voice describing various aspects of the Absolute, as the actuality of that Reality is distant and subject to mind distortion as a concept or memory of a 'satori moment' of sorts. Transmission via a person directly gives the recipient something Real they can relate to when hearing a talk by the teacher or reading the written word otherwise there may merely be a sensing of Truth being revealed but it doesn't 'stick' inwardly. I could have kept receiving inspirations and inklings forever without David's transmission opening Shakti up, perhaps part of us wants to keep itself in business by escaping life through comfortable beliefs without entering the Flame ?--George
