A piece of music, a film, nature, a stunning work of art, heartfelt words from a dear friend, can move us to tears with their beauty.
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 it's true, not everyone would agree with these words. But I've worked with many people experiencing intense pain, some even on their deathbeds.
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.

And it's not purely a revelation through the senses. That is just the icing on the cake. Life will find the cracks in the wall of your own private philosophy; whatever is unsound will be exposed like this.

There is an 'unimaginable' peace in that, even while you struggle with the internalization of that realization.
And what really makes this search a search at all is the expectant waiting for a repetition of the way consciousness was previously revealed; that sense that I know what I am looking for and I just want it to happen again....never does.

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.
