Everything both is, and is not, “numinous” –
Depending upon which set of eyes you’re looking through –
The trick is to remember which ones you’re using at any given moment
So, when “holy time” arrives, you can wake up out of your ordinary eyes.
Sometimes, God gently touches (or slaps) your face –
So you wake up
And, suddenly, everything becomes numinous.
One’s ego, however, never engages with the numinous
Because the ego, by nature, is trapped inside itself for its own protection
And so never “sees” God –
Which is why all the world religions, historically, have never been very effective.
Freedom provides a broad opening into the numinous –
– Freedom from self, from “God,” and from everything else –
Such freedom is so radical, it’s equivalent to dying –
And, then, dying a second time!
Permission granted –
Now you’re able to “see”
A single object – numinously!
But, one day, the whole world will open itself up to you in this same way –
An experience like going a trillion miles an hour
In pure silence.
