Has Anyone Experienced This?
To seek validation of your experience through comparing it with that of others means you are seeking approval from outside. Sometimes its good to assure you are not going crazy and alone in the process, but to know its kundalini working and still depend on external confirmation is very limiting.
“If you are going to do inquiry you have to stand in the authority of your own experience. You can’t be looking for a definition of your true being that you have heard about.”
WHAT DOES THIS EXPERIENCE MEAN?
“It doesn’t matter how profound a vision is or how wonderful the kriyas, or the kundalini, or the bliss. No matter how beautiful the spiritual experience is, it is only an experience, and experiences come and go. Freedom is found only in that which does not come and go. If it doesn’t come and go, that means that it’s present now. When you have a beautiful spiritual experience and then seem to lose it, ask yourself: What was present then that is still present now? Then you know where to put all of your attention, all of your dedication, and all of your heart. Don’t put it anywhere else. You are that permanence which contains all becoming and all be-going.”
“If I tell you my experience, I’ll think ‘I’ had it. Spiritual experiences are ego.”
EXPERIENCING THE UNKOWN
“The very desire to be certain,to be secure, to have permanency, is the beginning of bondage. The continuity of permanence is sought in every direction, in virtue, in relationship, in action, in experience, in knowledge, in outward and inward things. To find security and be secure is the everlasting cry. It is this insistent demand that breeds fear. It’s only when the mind is not caught in the net of certainty,and is not seeking certainty, that it is in a state of discovery.”-Jiddu Krishnamurti
BEYOND EXPERIENCE & EXPERIENCER
“In the mirror of your mind all kinds of pictures appear and disappear. Knowing that they are entirely your own creations, watch them silently come and go. Be alert, but not perturbed. This attitude of silent observation is the very foundation of yoga. You see the picture, but you are not the picture.”-Nisargadatta Maharaj
“Anything you can know or know about you cannot be, therefore discard it.”-Nisargadatta Maharaj
