How Black Essence supports inquiry

Teaching a section at the Black retreat at the Diamond Logos Academy in Copenhagen.

To inquire into our moment-to-moment experience is like throwing a pebble in a pond and receiving the ripples that are created.  The inquiry question is the pebble and any thought, emotion, impulse to take action, physical state, Essence, etc. that arises in the wake of asking the question are the ripples we receive.

Black Essence is the aspect of our Being that erases the activation in our system – including thoughts and emotions. Thus, Black brings us back to a pond with no ripples, so we can throw in the pebble and see the replay of the activation. ┬áBlack is the ‘slow motion replay button’ of inquiry that enables us to become aware of details we might previously have missed.
