@Shaunyata Ultimately, this culminated in a trip that cannot be adequately explained here. I experienced what I later learned to call Non-Duality: I experienced eternity for a finite period. Myself (and every"thing" else) as God/Ultimate Reality. One eternal moment recycling itself in a perpetual act of creation. That there are no things only a singular process. In short : The universe was shown to be fractal in nature. I didn't have the words to explain it then, but I did have the internet...

"Salvation must be sought in the finite itself, there is nothing infinite apart from finite things; if you seek something transcendental, that will cut you off from this world of relativity, which is the same thing as the annihilation of yourself. You do not want salvation at the cost of your own existence…" - D T Suzuki

just listen...

“The emerging consensus of American Zen, on the other hand, seems to me an attempt to capture that beast, anesthetize it, pull out its claws and teeth, and force it to breed tame, clawless, fangless offspring. These offspring will then be slaughtered, their bodies dried and salted, and then packed into plastic bags with a picture of the original beast on them and the words WILD BEAST JERKY in flaming red and the slogan ‘Can you tame the wild beast?’ ”

Lessons from sitting today: awareness (as opposed to 'concentration') is automatic. It requires no effort, no focus, no concentration. You simply notice that you are aware. As soon as you apply effort, that is concentration. Awareness is effortless.
