As awareness bends back on itself,
a breathtaking, eternal reality shines forth, pristine and untroubled by everything that has happened in the created world.
Remarkably one has been transported to the instant "before the beginning" of all creation while the familiar world is seen as an expression of an implicit void.
The infinite sense of awe and wonder is amplified when the silent question of how can this be?, is followed by the startling, all-encompassing presence of grace.
When awareness turns to the "world" it may be shocking to realize that people are not who they appear to be, but whether they know that is an open question.
All searching for tangible evidence of who they are ends in the same, formless mystery that one discovers when looking at one's "own" awareness and being.
