Dear Steve,

I am most touched that you shared all this with me in mind (although I am sure all who reads this will benefit). I have read it but will read it again attentively. Just reading your words about Love for/of the Source has my heart fire roaring. I am most certainly very much in Love with the Source. But like we know, there are layers to opening the heart and this has been at the back of my mind for some weeks now. I was thinking of starting the AYP heart-breathing practice to see what that brings. Right now I am in self-pacing mode and dare not add any practices.
I find myself dealing a lot with the lower centres these days. Not quite by choice but that is where kundalini takes me and I surrender to that. What is your experience of that?
As for self-enquiry, some months back my experiential understanding of the Self was I am That with That best described as ultimate Reality.
Today, this has changed again. I am nowhere to be found - not in the same sense as in the beginning of the process where "I" was emptiness, nothingness. It's a different feeling. I am not even That.

Hello Sey
Maybe there is no fixed answer to hold on to, and maybe there is no need to know,not knowing can be enough.
Or if that does not appeal to you, try sticking to I am .... removing That

Well said, Sey. Things keep shifting at their own pace. We do not make a choice to go toward something or reject something else because what happens it is not at the level of the mind. I do not know what to say about the middle years. It feels like every day it starts anew.

Dear all,

It's been over seven months since my last report. I still have to tread carefully practice-wise but more or less stable now at 3-5 mins SBP + 15 mins DM + 5 mins Samyama. A new phenomena is occurring every now and again - well, perhaps not quite new as I have reported it before but it is now happening in a different context.

I would be engaged in a conversation when suddenly there is an outpour of liquid light from within (outflow of Stillness) and although aware that I am still speaking, I cannot hear my words nor recall what I said - everything turns to Light in an exuberant flow. I would "come to myself" and my audience's attention would be riveted on me, smilingly. And I am left wondering - what did I say, what did I say?
I am talking of my daily life here - conversations at work. Pretty cool, uh?

Otherwise, life is stagnant despite constant change, frustrating and a little sad.

I have come to believe that when “the Divine presence” somehow bubbles forth in our everyday, whether it be light, bliss, silence, or a combination there of, it is an invitation to integrate our inner world with the outer, to radiate it forth with eyes wide open. Our practice is preparing us for a possible future where there is no such division of worlds neti neti.

Hi Sey,

You are describing something familiar here. It seems that these experiences point to something deeper available for recognition or "remembering." How is the light? What is this light? What is the feeling that comes with it? What do you see? Where is the light now? Is it anything outside it? You may want to explore these questions, and share or not share your insight.

Dear Blanche,

I take it as light of Awareness that sometimes shines so bright as to turn sound and form into light energy. I called it liquid light because there is movement there (stillness /emptiness dancing) in contrast to other times where the same light causes the mind to stop, complete stillness, which is the state of no judgement, no preference. So we have un-coloured mind in motion (feeling is exuberance) or in stillness (feeling is more blissful). And somehow "I" am able to perceive this.

I am not too sure where your questions are supposed to lead but those are my conclusions

There is something else that crossed my mind - is that how transmission (shaktipat) happens? Or is that entirely dependent on the receiver?

Dear Sey,

The experience here is somewhat the same and somewhat different. For example, the conversation continues as usual even though the sight goes to "another channel" than the material reality. The light is more transparent than bright, everything is empty space made of light, etc. It comes with a deep reverence of the Pure Divinity that is all. Probably I make a face because when the regular sight comes back the other person looks at me with starry eyes, smiling. The experience leaves a trace, like when you look behind a curtain and afterwards, even when the curtain is pulled back, you still see inside what is behind the curtain.

As about the shaktipat, it seems that the giver becomes a clear channel with the personal identity out of the way, while the receiver is ready to "catch" the gift. We all seem to get what we need.

Dear Blanche,

Yes, the light is transparent, brightly transparent - sparklingly clear is perhaps a better word
