Dear Friends, Have you heard of the term, “scissor statement?” It describes “a statement that has great destructive power because it generates wildly divergent interpretations that fuel conflict and tear people apart.
I realized I said "I don't quite know how" yet blathered on for paragraphs anyway 😂 it goes back to the care--I made some provocative statements, yet I am not sure if it is the wisest way to share spiritual experiences. I like reading them from Sasha Chapin and am semi-consciously mimicking him here.
Reading this reminds me of the unburdening meditation we practiced in Kind Camp: “This leads to a fresh pathway to direct experience, and a sense of otherworldly joy can emerge.”
I think I’ve experienced this otherworldly joy before. For me, I think it’s when the state of nothingness in my mind aligns with the somethingness of the world I’m ~sensing~ (rather than emotionally processing)
But I enjoyed reading it. Makes my brain expand.
