Sometimes in meditation there is a gap in normal consciousness, a sudden complete openness.
This only arises when one has ceased to think in terms of meditator, meditation and the object or meditation. It is a glimpse of reality, a sudden flash which occurs at first infrequently and then gradually more and more often. It may not be a particularly shattering or explosive experience at all, just a moment of great simplicity.
Do not make the mistake of deliberately trying to force these experiences to recur, for this is to betray the naturalness and spontaneity of reality.
