Transcendental Experiences

Here is an interview with a modern Christian contemplative who shares with us her experience.

Transcendental experiences happens to practitioners of all faith, be it Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and so on. It is important to query the experience and realize that however blissful or exceptional the experience is, they are still conditional upon our senses.

In short, any transcendental experience is a human experience, and will eventually fall away. When this happens, notice the tendency of the mind to cling, to want the experience back. Once we see through the nature of these experiences, further insights may arise and again we need to question.

I have not discussed about meditative experiences so far in this blog, and do not intend to do so yet as these discussions tend to have a misleading effect on other practitioners if right view is not established.

On a light note, was just watching this mtv so decided to add this in. Love this song :)

Tongue Tied

Typing, backspacing.
Fingers fixated, thoughts flying.
Nothing to express, but full in expression.
A blank sheet, speaks more than what's written.

What's there left to be said?

Smile at Fear

Change is Perfection

There is a natural tendency for us to want a happy occasion to last longer, and we usually like to take pictures during these occasions to relive the moment.

This tendency is here because subconsciously we know that we can't hold onto anything. We know that the memories will fade, that people will change, that the happiness is just a fleeting sensation. And this is what makes this life beautiful. Change is that which gives meaning to every moment of this life.

What we need to accept is change. Change is this life. Change is what creates this persona in this world. Without change this world will cease. Impermanence is the nature of this world, and it's what this life is about.

By seeing this, we know there is perfection in the imperfections.

What is this longing?
A sensation, persisting.
A memory, circling.
A tear, pain.
A smile, bliss.
Left wanting, as it fades
into thin air.
Running after a bubble.



Follow the way of the world, let benevolence replace personal profits;
Balance in everything, and one can depend on the journey.
