 On Expanding the Whole Practice:

 As I experimented with this practice of expanding the whole “situation” in which I found myself in, it meant that I was able to see the point of view and perspective of any and every one who I was interacting with … of course including my own view…  as if I became a more fair and felt a more neutral sense of being … of judging the various angels of the situation … as if a non-discriminative awareness kicking in that is not biased towards anyone or any angel in particular …

 On Conducting Knowledge Without Content Practice:

 “Can you know with a knowing that does not rely on words?  Is it possible to read mind to mind, awareness to awareness?”

Yes.  I always knew this was possible, but before now, had no clue of its underlying elements/dynamics and how to cultivate it further. 

Two nights ago on dinner table my daughter shared how her day was and she asked if we could guess what movie she watched earlier that day during her nanying job…  I knew it was Ottis and Milo and at the same time knew if I say it, how surprised every one is going to be…  I had a sense of calm and knowing that it was not a guessing…  I had been meditating earlier and the calmness and relaxed sense was still vividly with me…  So after I shared my knowing and every one was so surprise, I also shared (with my husband, son and daughter) that my recent studies are teaching me that we all have the potential to read each other’s mind, or communicate awareness to awareness and they have the equipment (the human body and mind) to cultivate it too ….

 On Qualities of Space Practice:

 Keeping this perspective in mind and engaging experience … space (awareness) appears as a place for permission to various views… (Accommodating all views)… and any particular view is not the only one valuable …. Infinite possibilities are possible and are accommodated by space (awareness)  … 

Rinpoche, you are a genius to teach us this… it is so obvious yet, so hidden!!!  Thank you Jack for valuing these teachings and helping it to reach us…

 On Space Eyes Practice:

 Today, as I read this particular practice’s directions, I understood the “Unknowingness” practice in a deeper new way… before it was rather vague and foggy what it meant…

The unknowingness seems today synonymous to and with “infinite possibilities available.”  Unlike any specific possibility that gets zoomed in or becomes the focus of the awareness or attention, the unknowingness allows awareness to stay open to all and knows when it has zoomed in to a particular possibility… As if today I saw it with much more clarity than ever before what Jack means by repeating himself over and over… but I was not ready to hear it and know it like today…

When awareness in not aware of this openness, unknowingness possibility, it gets focused on one view and then, the situation becomes solidified and closes in (no way out).  Awareness is congealed in that set possibility. 

It seems that if I remember this other way of seeing…seeing with the space eyes,  to stay with openness, the unknowingness of infinite accommodating nature of space (awareness)… then freedom is more and more pronounced…

Praying to remember… to befriend this kind of space (awareness) … so it can present more and more…
