"In meditation, we realize there is nothing that appears in our experience that is fixed and solid. Whatever you experience, it is just your own mind. But what is that mind? As you look closer and closer, you don't find an observer or a solid mind. Any sense of solid mind or concrete observer dissolves into space and becomes empty. Simply feel this vast, unbounded space. Mind is that spacious experience. Feel that boundless space like a vast desert sky, so vast there are no boundaries. UNION refers to that openness and the awareness of openness. And from that union, from that recognition of openness, bliss arises."
