Wow...I was gonna start a thread along similar lines and then stumbled across this one. My cognition is of late...that I find it darn near impossible to speak beyond my own personal experience.
Meaning a lot of spiritual or metaphysical discussion is redundant to me if it involves belief.
Speaking within your experience only allows for so much latitude however it does keep the ship on an even course.
I mean sometimes ( most times ) I wonder just what am I doing in a spiritual forum if I have no inclination to argue the toss over ego, nonduality, oneness etc. I simply realized that there is osmosis happening in these environments whether we are aware of it or not, a sharing is taking place. It is this level of understanding that interests me more so than mind interaction.
The accumulation of data is certainly very helpful but can be a restrictive process depending on the functionability of your mind. Realization through experience breeds an intuitive knowing that when recognised is absolute in its integrity. Rock on.
