From a place of silence and a quiet mind , there is a mirror like reflecting of what is beyond the ways of the self. From this place of stillness there is access to a wider and deeper knowledge, process and way of being with the mind that has led to a self-knowledge that could not be gathered through any other, through any book, through any confession, psychology, psychoanalyst or intellectual thinking. Through my own direct experience there is an expansion of self understanding that has transcended the self enclosing activities of the conditioned mind and conventional ways of learning. Being trapped in the conditioned, unaware state perpetuates an ever arising breeding ground of despair, pain and sorrow. There is limited space for creative investigation in this. In the expansion of mind there is a more comprehensive understanding of the activity of the mind that arises as awareness of action in relationship to things, to people, and to ideas deepens. In that relationship, which is the mirror, I come to see myself, without any justification or condemnation; and from that wider and deeper knowledge of the ways of mind, it is possible to proceed further and deeper in realization of self, life and connection. I am in this unfolding increasingly intimate with all that is.
