Once again, I’m back to the notion that awakening is not about figuring out the right meaning of dharma, or the right meditative state of mind. There are no right answers, or even right questions. There’s just what lies beyond the known, the unknown. Enlightenment is a lot of ‘nothing’. Every once in a while, you get flashes of insight (poof!) and then it’s a lot of nothing for a long time. You get used to the nothingness of it.
