But then again, so can a pile of dog excrement, a broken coffee cup, or even intense pain. It's all consciousness revealing itself - in and as everything. Welcome home to what you are.
And I can say that yes, this recognition is possible, even in the midst of intense pain. It's just an invitation. I would never, ever force this on anyone who wasn't open.
But the beauty of this is that there is no need for the same experience....or rather, life has no need to reinforce a particular version of it.
So there's nothing in particular to wait for.....and there is no way to say that what is happening right now should give way to something else; that what is happening right now is lesser......and in that "equality" that lies a feeling of a kind of divinity or mysteriousness.
