What we have seen this far is that understanding is not of mind. Understanding is from being. Understanding is being. "What is" is divine understanding - the very fabric of the manifested world. Therefore, when you are understanding you are aligned the divine, with source. You are source. But do not tell mind, it will never understand.

Yes, 'I' understand :-)

"Understanding understanding" is as close as words can get to describe something in which there is only IT, NOTHING BUT IT. :-)

Dear David and Mina. How wonderful to meet in communion. The wonder of no separation. Which in essence is our true nature. We are the world.

It came to be seen at meditation this morning that the mind is not aware that it is not aware. The simple mathematics behind it; a fragment striving to comprehend the whole while still maintaining a distance. As the observer apart from the observed. Seeing this is the emergence of understanding beyond mind.

Mina: Right...it is an impossibility for the mind, for a collection of fragments, to see the whole, because there is nothing but parts in it..the parts can create an idea of the whole, but that happens in the same fragmentation...And the distance between the observer and the observed can NEVER be overcome, one can never catch the other, (that is how thought/fragmentation can try to do, in its attempt to 'see the whole', all the while, in its every movement, distancing itself from itself). The observer and the observed can only exist in separation. They have no other existence. That which realises and sees this, is freedom 'from' that fragmentation...no, not well said, because in freedom the fragmentation ends..and not that it remains somewhere and is just left behind..no, that would still be imaginary...but it ends in understanding...
