If I may share the following comment about ‘not allowing experience to interfere with the shining of being’.
One may wonder, who is it who does this ‘non-allowing’? Is there such a thing as someone who allows and not-allows?
Also, one may wonder if anything can interfere with the shining of the sun or the shining of being?
And what is this shining of being that we speak of?
On one hand it is being, knowing itself. And it does so (effortlessly) by the simple fact that being is and by the simple fact that being is self-knowing.
On the other hand, the shining of being is creation which goes hand in hand with knowing. After all, what is creation if it is not known?
Prayer and meditation are not two and are our natural state. The effortless universal state, what is referred to in Buddhism as the essential nature, our essential nature and the essential nature of everything.
