      Both. The vision without the understanding
      would fade from consciousness. Jesus made
      this distinction in the parable of the sower.

      He used the metaphor of a farmer sowing seed,
      with our consciousness being the ground and
      the seed being our inherent (potential) knowledge
      of our Oneness within God, or God Consciousness,
      Nondual Realization, Awakening, Enlightenment...

      He spoke of those who would "hear the The Word
      of God"(get a vision, or a sense, of the logos
      of God, the identity of God, the Kingdom within)
      and experience "joy" to varying degrees, but then
      the joy would fade or "the cares of the world",
      like weeds, would choke out the joy after a time.

      Then, in the forth example, he spoke of
      "joy and understanding". The Understanding,
      to which the vision opened the door, takes
      us beyond the limits of sensory and mere
      intellectual experience, to a whole new world,
      a new (or renewed) awareness of nondual reality.
      This brings our ground game to a whole new level,
      and the potential for a fruitful undefeated season.

      What we had experienced as our former reality,
      is now seen as a relatively insignificant
      (though still wonderfully pleasant and
      enjoyable on many levels)secondary sense of
      reality. With the vision and understanding,
      the illusion of separation if dispelled,
      and we become one with the ball...a primary
