The meditator develops new depths of insight through direct communication with the reality of the phenomenal world. He or she is able to see not only the absence of complexity, the absence of duality, but the stoneness of stone and the waterness of water. One sees things precisely as they are, not merely in the physical sense, but with awareness of their spiritual significance. Everything one sees is an expression of spiritual discovery. There is a vast understanding of symbolism and a vast understanding of energy.
