      think of - understanding is "in back of it." If understanding *were*
      experiential (and I don't mean understanding how to fill out one's
      tax form), then it would be just another whiff that comes and goes.
      ********** Exactly, and people chase sprituality like it's a goddaman
      orgasm. Understanding transcends (in back of) the whole "chase"
      business itself. Orgasms come, orgasms go, spritual experiences
      come, spriitual experiences go - so much the worse for it! :-) Ha-ha!

      downstairs one Christmas eve and seeing my parents wrap the
      presents. They talked about they'd make the bike be from Santa...).
      But what was left was not a mental image constantly remembered and
      rehearsed ("There is no Santa, there is no Santa).

      the cessation of that experience too!

      guess that everyone has experiences... at least everyone alive .. :-)
