    Great letter above, Awakeness. The frequent harking back in your talks to the big events of your momentary and abiding awakenings, though inspiring in several ways, also can have a undertow of encouraging your students to recall their own awakenings in order to dwell in the “false memories” and assure themselves that they really did awake. Of course, as you say, by that moment they are already “down the rabbit hole.” This letter does help to avoid that slip. Luckily I can’t remember a thing from those awakening moments whether fleeting or abiding, though I have felt incited to look. Looking into an empty rabbit hole does not encourage the same mistake. Perhaps I am still sane. I remember some laughter. But that laughter and present laughter are One. Easy to choose the present absence over the past idea of absence: ha! ha! ha! 1=1 and 0=0! 1+0=1. 1+1=1 . 0+0=0!

      Sadly enough, in doing what I do (or not-doing what isn’t actually done), I find it impossible not to reference “my” awakenings even though there is no Fred, or any other entity who can truthfully proclaim to have had “an awakening.” Ever. No exceptions.

    Thanks, Fred. This is really the key not just to post-awakening clarity, but to awakening itself. It’s here right now, as it is. It’s not yours. But it is you.

      Excellent, Kathleen. “Post-awakening.” as we term it, is an endless process of recognizing and then accepting that there is only Awakeness.

    Glad you mentioned to check this in satsang today, Fred. It’s beautiful. “There is no such thing as distance for Oneness”. That line shines so bright. All of this is happening inside of me, at zero distance. OH MY GOD. How far from me to me? It is like the concept of distance doesn’t even apply. Am I incredibly vast or smaller than an atom? There is no reference to compare it to. Haha. I have been in stitches the past hour laughing in utter amazement. I have no clue what is happening here. What is all of this??
