Experience trap

  • Desiring, expecting, or requiring that which is transcendent of experience to be confirmed by experience before accepting it.
  • Insisting upon experience to confirm that which is beyond experience.
  • The insistence upon experiential confirmation prevents direct knowing and keeps one in a cycle of experiencing unreality.
  • Any lack of trust in direct knowing beyond experience limits the capacity for direct knowing and limits the ability to end the cycle of suffering.
