  1. @MIla…

    Thank you for your thought-full reply. I appreciate it.

    FEELing the absence of separation between you and the other person has nothing to do with awakening and enlightenment. Which partly explains why those two concepts are rarely used by me in my descriptions of my experience. And I mostly speak from personal experience.

    Our bodily senses certain do a great job of supporting the “realness” of the apparition of separation for us.

    But there is an extra-sensory FEEL to the presence of the absence of separation, Mila. And you do not have to embrace any particular concept/definition of enlightenment or awakening to FEEL the presence of the absence of separation.

    All it takes are two ingredients: intention and attention.

    There are practices that you can perform with your attention that can… like tuning a radio to receive frequencies that have been previously blocked… open your ability to (ap)perceive the presence of the absence of separation.

    They don’t involve the embracing of any particular concepts.

    All they involve, instead, is the retuning of your attention.

    Thanks, again,for your input.
