October 5th - Day 278
Realization is not an experience. Realization is the breakthrough, the penetration through the mind of That which always and eternally exists. It is the penetration through the veil of illusion. The veil quickly closes again, just as the air closes quickly upon a lightening strike and produces thunder. The mind, similarly, quickly closes after the Strike of Reality with a cacophony of noise which we call "explanation," but is, in fact, senselessness or ignorance.
