Epiphany

I can’t help but see all true mystical teachings as universal, and universally liberating. -- Mirabai Starr.

Epiphany in Crestone « Mirabai Starr, author and speaker

Epiphany II

The invisible world is contained within the human eye,
So say and describe all men of inner knowledge.
Behold the Brahmand within, through your astral eye.
When that eye is opened, everything stands revealed.
    -- Tulsi Sahib

Tulsi Sahib: Sound Celestial

Epiphany III -- "I Sit in Forgetfulness"

14: Being free from following is a freedom too

Yen Hui said, 'I am making progress.'

Kung-ni replied, 'What do you mean?'

'I have ceased to think of benevolence and righteousness,' was the reply.

'Very well; but that is not enough.'

Another day, Hui again saw Kung-ni, and said, 'I am making progress.'

'What do you mean?'

'I have lost all thought of ceremonies and music.'

'Very well, but that is not enough.'

A third day, Hui again saw (the Master), and said, 'I am making progress.'

'What do you mean?'

'I sit and forget everything.'

Kung-ni changed countenance, and said, 'What do you mean by saying that you sit and forget (everything)?'

Yen Hui replied,

'My connexion with the body and its parts is dissolved; my perceptive organs are discarded. Thus leaving my material form, and bidding farewell to my knowledge, I am become one with the Great Pervader. This I call sitting and forgetting all things.'
