Impossible to believe, yet it is true nonetheless.
With just a few clarifications and definitions it may becomes clear to you as well.
First, that which is “real” is always what it is. For something to be real, it needs to be unchanging, eternal, and self-evidently true. When we are looking for something to “make sense” we want it to fit into what we can sense with our physical senses. In other words, for something to be seen, felt, heard, smelled, tasted. We are looking for material validation.
We call something “nonsense” and dismiss it, when it does not fit into what we can sense.
This is a mistake many scientists make. True science is a search for truth. If science was based on what could be validated by our physical senses we would still be living on a “flat” earth. Leaps in scientific understanding often occur in “awareness” first, and are written as abstract theories, “hard to believe,” yet true steps toward clarifying reality.
When we hear ourselves saying ”that doesn’t make any sense to me,” we may be attempting to discern the validity of something through a channel of perception that cannot “see” what is true.
We have the capacity to discern what is real through awareness. Awareness is non-material, non-sense.
The “Aha” moments described by the panel at Carole Hyatt’s alumni dinner the other night all occurred in awareness. When we live solely by “what makes sense,” we live unable to receive the blessed “Aha’s:” our guide to enlightened living.
By the way, if you missed the dinner and panel discussion on “Aha Moments,” it was moderated by Sonya Hamlin with great love, humor and intelligence, and included Barrie Brett and Dr. Laurie Nadel with yours truly.
