      Hi Dan,

      just a bit of a tangent here spun out of your dialogue with Tony......

      In calling on words to help describe, verb words seem suggest in a more
      "sensing" way...
      For example "awareness" is a state, a noun, suggesting some place
      to be...

      Where aware-ing is functioning....suggesting non-duality
      in more absolute terms.....so i like that
      word in conjunction with being in the
      zone of pure potentiality....or as you say, timeless meditation.

      Which is always in flux, yet it always what it always was.

      "Same as it ever was, same as it ever was......."

      It's just that you probably don't find that word (aware-ing) in the
      dictionary.

      cheers,

      Freyja

        True, Freyja.

        And dictionaries are always circular, each word
        defined by another word, going around in a circle.

        Just as experiences and relationships are like that,
        each action known in relation to a counteraction,
        or each moment known in relation to another.

        And there's a certain comfort in going in circles,
        or for many, going in straight lines.

        Or not.

        Looking for myself in the dictionary,
        Dan
