No Experience Necessary

What you are can never be experienced.

Looking for a particular experience as confirmation of what you are – whether peace or love or anger or irritation or rain or cold wind or sand between your toes or terror or calm or equanimity or hunger or sublime spiritual visions – takes you in the wrong direction and will keep you searching forever. Searching, finding, celebrating, losing, and grieving – only to begin searching again and again – is samsara/suffering.

No experience is what you are (read that again – yes, I mean that in both ways). In fact, any experience can only serve to point you back to this present Awareness upon/within/throughout which this very experience, right now, is registered.

Beingness, as an employer, has few requirements: no experience necessary.
