An Experience is Not the Point. It is the View that Matters. Live Teaching. Worldwide Insight. Sunday 13 May, 2018 at 19..00 UK time. Do Join

We will explore this theme on Sunday 13 May, 2018 at 19.00 with Worldwide Insight, via online video. https://www.worldwideinsight.org/

A deep application of attention includes the sustained application to any important experience. This includes  a vast range of happy or painful, spiritual or conventional experiences.

There is the view of the experience and the experience.

What is a fresh way to see an important experience?

Does the view of the experience matter more than the experience?

An Experience is not the Point

We might imagine that the Dharma points eventually to a profound experience (s) to transform our life.

There is the potential to have a wide ranges of experiences. These include childhood, emotional, secular, religious, mystical, spiritual and insightful experiences.

Yes, clarity and wisdom can emerge out of the variety of experiences. We can keep our heart and mind open to the variety of experiences.

An experience essentially consists of a movement or non-movement of the heart-mind-consciousuness.

An experience arises due to the conditions, stays due to the conditions and passes due to the conditions.

There is no such thing as an everlasting experience.

A view based on a deep experience does not confirm the realty. We can have experiences of oneness, non-duality, the now, expansive realms, experiences beyond words and profound changes in consciousness. We can experience I am That or I am not That.

We do not have to put any experience whatsoever into an ultimate state or relegate any experience into a a mundane category.

Liberation and awakening ends any clinging, dependency or view based on any experience. Liberation and freedom do not fall into the box of experiences. This is a great relief.

Seeing and knowing this allows all experiences to present themselves for a whiie, stay and pass.

Sunday Evening (UK time)

We will explore our relationship to experiences.

Do join us live on Sunday evening on the international screen.

Home page of worldwide insight will tell you your time at 19.00 (UK) on Sunday evening.
