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.
  • The “receiving end” of creation.
  • Experience outpictures one’s inner state. Collective experience outpictures the inner state of the collective.
  • To have an experience requires the belief in separation. Without the belief in separation, which outpictures 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 or reinforcing the belief in separation.
  • The type of one’s experience reveals the extent to which they are awake.
  • 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.
  • There is only one experience that is seeming to happen.
  • Enlightenment is beyond experience.
  • Experience can serve a liberating purpose by loosening fixed ideas.
  • Experience is a type of knowing; however, pure knowing transcends experience.
  • 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.”
  • “Your experience is determined by your consciousness. Upgrade your consciousness and your experiences become gentler.”
