Sacred experience

„The flower is strong in its beauty as it can be forgotten, set aside or destroyed.“
 J. Krishnamurti 

Some words have power to stop the mind. And when it moves again, it is slightly different. 
Human being is also strong in its beauty. And it can also be forgotten, destroyed.
Human being knows many nuances of being. Human experience encompasses whole spectrum of states. 
It’s very core is elusive and unsubstantial. 

Human’s body with its very intelligent design, yet very fragile and destroyable. Brain with its electric sensitivity producing various sensations. Lots of passing phenomena and delusional perceptions seem to be involved in this experience.
And human being, conscious being begins to ask the questions. 
What is real?
Who am I?
Am I?
Is there something here undeniable real? Something that can't be destroyed?
Mind, consciousness turns around, inward, bends to itself.
There is something. This. This which is - everything.
It can be felt always before, after and in between; unspeakable feeling of aliveness, awareness, with no detectable beginning or end.
Could it be called Life?
Life is indestructible. Spirit of life, not the manifestations of life. 
Manifestations know birth and death. But spirit of life lives; eternally.
So the human being is a combination, cross section of destroyable and indestructible. Being aware, being able to create human being is life itself. But only potentially, when free. Free from beliefs and adopted structures of thoughts. When cleaned from past.
Human being is able to go beyond time and space, through the now. 
Not by coming to any special sacred place, not by any method requiring time. Time is thinking, thought movement. And liberation is beyond thinking; Beyond space and time created by mind movements. 
Thinking is always something second-hand, so neither authentic nor sacred. Only first-hand experience can be really liberating.
Only seeing the facts, without interpretation brings sacredness of life into a human life. In any ordinary moment or place. In Now - free from artificial divisions. Even free from division on inside and outside.
There can be no sacredness “outside”, because it is thought projected and thus always dividing.
It is conceptual and dualistic, having always the other, non-sacred pole.

„But there’s a sacredness which is not of thought, nor of a feeling resuscitated by thought. It is not recognizable by thought nor can it be utilized by thought. 
Thought cannot formulate it. But there’s sacredness, untouched by any symbol or word. 
It is not communicable. It is a fact.“
J. Krishnamurti
