Experience

  • A form of indirect knowing.
  • An encounter with symbols in the Mind.
  • An interaction with symbols in the Mind.
  • An interaction with expressions in the Mind.
  • An interaction with the outpicturing of one’s inner state.
  • The “receiving end” of creation.
  • Collective experience is a collective encounter with the symbols in the Mind.
  • Collective experience is a collective interaction with the symbols in the Mind.
  • Collective experience is a collective interaction with the expressions in the Mind.
  • Collective experience is an interaction with the outpicturing of the inner state of the collective.
  • To have an experience requires the belief in separation. Without the belief in separation, which leads to the outpicturing of apparent separation, everything is known directly and immediately and there can be no indirect knowing.
  • To have an experience requires the belief in separation from Divinity/God/Source.
  • To have an experience requires the belief in separation from THE SUPREME.
  • The type of one’s experience reveals the extent to which they are affirming and reinforcing the belief in separation.
  • The type of one’s experience reveals the extent to which they are awakening from the unreal world that is the apparent result of the belief in separation.
  • Experience follows from belief.
  • One can only experience what one believes to be the case.
  • Experience reveals the beliefs that are operating, often unconsciously.
  • All experiences are equivalent as they are empty, i.e., based on a false belief in separation.
  • All experiences are a single experience within the Mind of Divinity/God/Source.
  • Awakeness/enlightenment is beyond experience.
  • Experience can serve a liberating purpose by loosening fixed ideas.
  • Experience is a type of (indirect)  knowing; however, pure knowing transcends experience.
  • The purpose of experience is for Divinity/God/Source to explore ideas within the Mind of Divinity/God/Source.
  • The profound depths of gnosis transcend experience.
  • Supreme Gnosis is entirely beyond experience.
  • In apex enlightenment, experience is impossible.
  • In apex reality, experience is impossible.

Sayings:

  • “The possibilities that one can experience are determined by how strongly one holds onto the belief in separation.”
  • “Our experience is determined by our consciousness. When we upgrade our consciousness, our experiences become gentler, more luminous, and heavenly.”
