Something occured to me today. While maintaining (somewhat unevenly) an awareness of bodily sensation, kinaesthetic, ambient, along with mood, volitional impulses, thoughts flow and so forth, there was a flashing out onto a more panoramaic sense. This is not presumably something other than the skandhas. It was however different than the piecemeal awareness of bodymind that is often present, in that there was a clear awareness of the compelling, overarching global perception, or narrative, that I seem to swim in like the ocean. With this awareness there was a stepping out of the narrative and an opening to simple presence, like after a few days on retreat. Then, being in the midst of a busy day, the narrative with all of its limitations and seeming fates re-asserted itself. It was an opening in the thick of things.

Can any one relate?

Maybe. Sometimes I experience a sudden jump in awareness and clarity and focus while sitting.

Sergeant Schultz knew everything there was to know.
