The Spectrum of Experiences (and who is experiencing them).

I’ve been rich with experiences lately. You know- the ones that Life brings. It might be simply because I have become increasingly more sensitive to them. And because of these abundances of experiences- I also have an opportunity to see where they might lead.

Every experience has something to reveal about itself, if we only look. By revealing, I don’t mean by analyzing them- what caused them or what they might mean about us. I mean to see where they might lead if we have a curious attitude about them.

Each and every experience has a much broader significance than we give it credit for. If I am feeling frustration- it isn’t only because I am frustrated. If I look very closely, I can also find peace, calmness, allowance and everything else along the spectrum of frustration. By being aware of these other experiences within the spectrum of frustration, my awareness of my own spaciousness becomes much more vast. You can really feel this vastness immediately when you become aware of other experiences along a Spectrum. We become aware that we contain infinite experiences. And that they are all possible!


When I do this, I am not aware that one experience is better than another. When I am in the spectrum of any given experience, they all become equal and the same. No  experience is more preferred than another. Now, my beliefs may say calmness is more desirable to frustration, but to the Infinite Reality that just simply isn’t so. All experiences are needed for a spontaneous, authentic Life. And they all have their value, given the perfect circumstance in the moment.

Because once we get into the Pure Spectrum of experiences, the Infinite Reality is the one choosing the experience. It is pure because the Infinite Reality is not fixated on any given experience (such as enlightened one). It doesn’t need to maintain any experience, nor does it need to resist any experience. It is looking for absolute freedom. And it also doesn’t need to justify, explain, or own any experience. It is the infinite Reality. So it doesn’t need anything at all- except it delights in knowing itself as what is experiencing the experience.

So, when we get into Spectrums, we are availing every single experience to Life itself. When I feel frustration, I see it as an open door for the Infinite Reality to have access to anything else it may want to experience- in order to know ITSELF.

When the Infinite Reality is knowing Itself, it lives life in a completely free and spontaneously. There is nothing in the way. There are no beliefs, judgements, fears. This is the enlightened condition. And, if you have ever watched someone like Amma operate, you can see this spontaneously free way of living in display. It is remarkable to watch!

In fact, Amma has a quote. “God is pure experience.” She is not saying to have an experience of God. That is entirely different and not really possible- as experiences come and go.

I’ll leave the rest for you to interpret.
