When I was a small child, my father gave me an FM radio. It totally fascinated me that I could hear other people from far away. When I looked at the radio dial, it said 88 Mhz to 108 Mhz. Being the curious child I was, I wanted to know what could be beneath 88 Mhz and also above 108 Mhz. Later in life I developed somewhat of a hobby with the radio spectrum, which I accessed using radios of various types. It turns out the 88-108 Mhz was only a very small portion of the radio spectrum, which starts to taper off at 3 gigahertz, thus becoming part of the light spectrum. I've recently started studying short wave, as these signals bounce off the ionosphere, giving them the ability to circumnavigate the globe. Recently, I've been listening to the new BBC short wave station setup for the Ukrainians on short wave 15735 kHz and 5875 kHz and various amateur radio enthusiasts.
With regard to the typical six sense experience, it seems to have a limited scope - like the FM radio - that can only receive a very small portion of the reality spectrum, and to become curious about the boundaries of that scope is to inquire into the nature of all things. When that task has been complete, the entire spectrum of reality is laid bare. I often try to relay this understanding in words, both verbally and written. Like Andriy says, it's a feature of the enlightened mind, and if one has a particular skill with words, then the expression will take that form. Here is a particular perspective that I often enjoy and one that I try to convey verbally in other creative ways to people...
- The Equanimous Smile
Through a mind saturated with equanimity, one turns towards humanity
and harbours only love and understanding.
It is love because the equanimous mind does not lean to any extremes,
views, judgements or beliefs, thus giving rise to a clarity that is
not polluted by the conditions of the world. From that clarity, what
one sees in humanity is pure innocence in all behaviours. The people
of the world become like children playing in a sandpit, learning how
to grow out of materialistic immaturity.
It is an understanding because the equanimous mind sees the innocence
of the six-sense experience to be secondary to our primary nature, and
from this wider perspective the flesh experience is not taken too
seriously. As such, a new kind of smile arises - one that is not of
this world, but has an influence in the world.
That is understanding, and together they are love and understanding
born of equanimity.
