Excerpt About Reality
The Continual Outflow of RealityYes. Like the movie, the frame that appears has nothing to do with the frame before it or after it. The frame appears right now. Everything that is happening now is like a frame, an instantaneous frame. And because the frames move quickly, we think that the forms that constitute their content are continuous in time and space; we think that they operate according to cause and effect. But in some sense the screen is not a flat screen. The screen is sculpted according to the forms you see. Reality is more like a formation, an emergence, a continual outflow, an unfoldment, like how a flower comes out. When you see from that perception of flow, you're aware also of the source. All the forms that appear are transparent to the source. And the source, based in absolute silence and peace, somehow casts an appearance of beauty and grace over everything.
