EASTER GREETINGS: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE MEANING OF REALIZATION

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE MEANING OF REALIZATION




                  If we are going to prepare an honest account,
I think it is necessary to includ an account
of  the realization experience.
         A Japanese writer referred to this experience
as, "The  foundation experience". I understand
what he means by this term. After you have this
experience, you are standing on a different 
floor. Before the experience, the floor you stood
on was the floor of the ego. Everything circles
around the eggshell sphere of you own special
identity.
        But once the eggshell implodes, the foundation
of your ego existence has disappeared. Realization
is the only experience which changes a person's
identity. After the experience, you are no longer
'special' in the sense you were before. You are
special because you are at one with the earth
and the universe, and the universe is blossoming.
There are no problems whatsoever, you realize.
         There is only the present and the present
is a continuous birthing. As people, we have
endless difficulties, but, as the universe,
you see that all the world is a joyful
dance.

         I'm making the process sound easy,
but it is not. It is a devotion in love, attention,
concentration, focus, costing not less
than everything.
         There is no need to travel to a distant
land to find the meaning of the experience.
Redemption, Realization are within the grasp
of your own hand.
         But it is not an experience you will
ever find through grasping.
