I have listed current practices, so I may as well list some current experiences…
- Soft, warm energy around/in/through and extending beyond the physical body.
- A soft wholeness of body/psyche, extending beyond the physical body.
- “Empty light” in/through body/mind and all phenomena.
- All phenomena as radiant (vibrating light/energy in/around/beyond everything).
- Deep sense of sensual, calm groundedness.
- Spacious awareness distinct from all phenomena.
- “Emptiness” in all phenomena (form w/out substance, radiancy).
- Rich sense of intimacy with all phenomena (no separation)
- Sense of some general sickness in the physical body, mild flu symptoms (last few days).
- The field beyond/through the body is “empty” as well as rich and full, which makes it easy to be here/now and not get caught up in thoughts (thoughts are few and quiet).
- Sense of the small self – this personality – as a shell, a vortex in the stream, through which the spacious awareness functions/embodies.
- General sense of ease and comfort, and how it is beyond simple.
- Resting in the field of awareness through/beyond the body, seeing the habitual hang-ups as a cloud in the distance and not needing to engage in them.
- Thoughts are quiet and appear within a much larger space, so there is little opportunity to get caught up in them. (I did get caught up somewhat tonight, for the first time over several days, although it was mild and transient – the center of gravity is stably in the field of awareness through/beyond the body).
I sense that the richness and fullness in this comes from a combination of the recent eight-day Breema intensive in the Bay area, daily self-Breemas and Breema bodywork, some minimal sitting practice, as well as the continuing Byron Katie style inquiries and the recent deekshas.
And my external situation has been pretty good (according to the likes and dislikes of this personality) since I came back from Oakland, so there are not too many triggers around… I’ll enjoy it while it lasts(!). There is a lot more work to be done. What is listed above can appear due to favorable circumstances, so the direction from here is clarification and deepening, and rest in it – the series of russian dolls from the nature of mind, via the field of awareness and energies through the physical body – in more and more situations.
