The Silence I experienced today while hiking and meditating at Red Mountain Open Space was really quite profound. In this silence, I sensed a mutual bliss of God and Goddess, with my identity sandwiched in between the Two. "The I only awakens to itself in a Thou," says Abhishiktananda. "Therefore, there cannot be solitary bliss, any more than there can be solitary being or solitary self-awareness." Today, I could definitely sense that mutual bliss."
