...at one point, i truly Sensed the ocean was coming over and thru me,
including the sunrise sky..as though the Great Gazer had taken over all sense of any "me"..... was Gazing thru me, as me...me disappeared..... Oneness with not only the ocean approaching seen thru the lens, but the entire universe/galaxy...
...had to stop quickly and eat some bread we carry with us..
.....and Be Breathed Deeply.

PERFECT POSSESSION OF COSMIC GRACE
ELIMINATES ALL INROADS FOR VIRUS, PARASITES AND CONTAMINATIONS…
DISAPPEARS EVEN THE CONCEPTS OR PERCEPTIONS OF SUCH AND MORE..
PERFECT POSSESSION OF COSMIC GRACE IS ALL THAT IS
OR EVER HAS BEEN
LOSING ALL IN THIS SPLENDOUR
LOSING EVEN THE EXPERIENCE OF NAMING SPLENDOUR
now only "older than God"* knows...
*Tao Te Ching #4
dmm/ew paraphrase/version of the below:
Mulla Nasrudin, who was really unaccustomed to public speaking,
arose in confusion after dinner and mutterd hesitatingly:
when I came here tonight
only God and myself knew
what I was about to say to you
ONLY GOD KNOWS!”
I have spoken about it and I have never loved speaking more. The greatest moments of my speaking were when I was speaking on Sosan. Speaking and silence together... speaking yet not speaking, because Sosan can be explained only through no-speaking. He was not a man of words, he was a man of silence. He spoke just the minimum."
OSHO....writing about Sosan's Hsin Hsin Ming Book of Nothing
one would be Sosan's Hsin Hsin Ming.
how to be so aware that you can see through,
and opposites become one and dualities cease.
In a deep penetration of awareness,
sinners disappear saints also,
because they both belong to the duality.
God dies and the Devil also
because they also belong to the duality --
the mind created them.
hsin hsin ming: the book of nothing
nothing clings to us and we hold to nothing.
All is empty, clear, self-illuminating,
with no exertion of the mind’s power.
Here thought, feeling, knowledge, and imagination
are of no value.
Then one lives, only lives. One breathes, only breathes.
No imagination, no thought, no mind –
they are all of no value.
You trust existence, and when you trust existence, existence trusts you.
This meeting of trust is the ultimate bliss, the ecstasy, samadhi.

The Zen Understanding of Mind and Consciousness
Step by step, Osho unlocks the meaning within each of Sosan’s verses,
laying out a clear understanding of such puzzles
as the difference between mind and consciousness,
between meditation as practice and as a state of being,
and what “choiceless awareness” really means.
Each verse of Sosan’s text is illuminated
with examples from ordinary life and its common conflicts,
problems, and self-created dramas offered up
with a mix of unflinching honesty and light-hearted humor
that brings us to the point where problems simply dissolve...
…often first into laughter, and then into silence.
