The direct perception.
The direct touch of a colour, green, red, blue.
Being moved by music, a sunset, a beautiful form.
Being moved by an emotion, happiness, sadness.
Everything appears and is known.
Known without thoughts.
Through the direct contact.
Can you see this happening in your own experience?
Thought comes into being as a story told after the
appearance has taken place.
Or just pops up randomly
about the past or the future.
This is how it operates for everyone.
The difference with being awake or not,
is that when you know that your identity
is not anything in particular
thoughts are not taken in anymore
as the most important element.
It is seen as an appearance among all others.
It is seen that it is a story,
told to keep an identity in place,
and to create an artificial separation
between me and others,
between me and the rest of the world.
If this is seen through there is the being
touched by all that comes in through the senses.
The smells, the sights, the sounds, the emotions.
Coming and going continuously without stop.
Life being touched by Life.
Always,always there are perceptions coming and going.
If the nature of thoughts
and the identity it is keeping alive
is seen for what it is,
it is life living.

Simultaneously the container and the contained.
Aware of Self and
aware of everything that appears.
The benevolent, intelligent alive Something
vast, open, all embracing,
the birds singing outside the house
the JCB moving earth close by
the stinging foot healing from a fracture
thoughts and emotions present
sensations, sights and smells.
This is an experiential knowing, seeing,
not to be achieved
as it is always present already.
This seeing, knowing becomes more obvious
once the mechanism of referring everything to the
personal mechanism slows down.
Some instances where this can happen are e.g.
falling in love,
being in nature,
having a mystical experience.
And it is possible to facilitate the thinning out
of the personal identification through
By seeing that all appearances,
sights, smells, sensations, thoughts, emotions
come and go.
And it is our identification with some aspects
of the appearances which gives the idea of separation.
But is this true?
If we keep questioning those thought structures and habits
they start loosing their rigidity, become more plastic
and let in more light.
Another important ingredient for seeing through
the personal structure is intuition.
Listening to the guidance already here
as This is already present and
whispers already to us what is needed.
The longing to come home is nothing less
then This already calling out to us.
