i want help, not about books and words, but about experience. one can not understand much less answer such questions as i have without experience.

while my eyes are blinded by the light, i embrace the paradoxical reality i have found.
I am either in the house or when i am put out, i stand knocking at the door because i can not stand this place of filth (the ego.)

who knows what i am seeing and can help me understand?

I have found sustenance from another realm. my body is being built by trial and error. some things are inanimate, some are sweet but poisonous, some are bitter and nutritious.

I am looking for help in understanding the world i am entering into. and anyone who is there, knows how i came to this place and what i mean when i say "I."

all our lives, we have no say in the influences that shape ourselves. but now it seems i can choose who i share influences with others. I am a limb, and i am whole, but disconnected.

here i find a lot of mans words, it is the ramas. I search for the logos.
the logos of man in syntactical, it is logical words. The logos of the creator is the whole of creation, it can never be in words. when the logos was spoken, existence is the words.

who can share the logos?
who can explain what i read in reality, not what i read in a book?
If anyone have eyes to see and ears to hear, i pray they have mouths to speak.

Don't be afraid of lifting up self. who is there to fear? if in teaching me, you become boastful in your heart, it is the impurities rising to the top. that is a matter to be thankful in.

Hello Jesse, I am a little unclear about your questions. You are asking who can share the logos? In strict Sufi language, "Only God can know Himself." Yet: "He who knows himself knows his Lord." These two statements should inspire us to meditate!

Perhaps I can comment more if you elaborate on your questions.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami

it's like a man who wakes up on an island, larger than he can know, and full of mineral, vegetable, and animal life but he has never seen any of it before.
there are fruits, but none that he knew of before.

as he tries to search this new land, he is met with success and failures. nourishment and disappointment.
such a man would hope to find another, or others who are in the land.
such a man would like to bring a fruit to someone who knows the land, and ask what it is good for and how to prepare it.

that is a metaphor that is also as literal as one can imagine.

it is also like a human, born on an alien planet.
when one learns that he has a brother on that planet, it would follow that such a human would be glad to find another human.
furthermore, if someone claimed to be his brother, suppose it would take little investigation to know if the other was human or alien.

finally, it is like a poor man who saved up for a trip to a far away land.
while he was there he heard a strange music so beautiful that he cut his trip short and spent the rest of his money to buy the instrument.
upon returning home with no possession other than the instrument, he will be very sad if he can not find the appropriate instructor.

it is hard to explain a spiritual thing, especially when one has just discovered it. it would profit one to find someone else who has discovered the thing and knows what it is. but how can someone who hasn't even discovered it for themselves possibly name the spiritual thing.

Hello Jesse! If you want answers to your experiences, you must learn to meditate. We have many resources you can utilize to aid you in this endeavor. See the references below!

In order to perceive, one must awaken consciousness. Meditation is the science of awakening consciousness.

Yes, after many years on the path, it was meditation that led to the subtle awareness.

It is there that I experience. Awareness practice is the way to living experience.

Without meditation, who could plant the tiniest of seeds?
