84 On Discernment of Experience

Beloved Peter,

You ask how to discern a facade of experience from the reality of a spiritual experience.

It is simple.
First you must trust yourself, and your feelings.

You know, within yourself, if what you are experiencing is real or not real.
That which is not real has to be convinced to you, by the mind.
It has to confirm it to you.
But the real experience needs no confirmation, it is undeniable.

So start trusting your senses, and practice honesty.
If you are not honest, you will not be able to be honest with yourself.
