An experience among experiences

“Gaps in the mindstream– spaces between thoughts, moments of quiet, and diffuse felt senses–represent a relative kind of emptiness. These gaps are relatively formless in comparison to the more graspable forms of thought, perception, or emotion. Yet the stillness in these gaps is only relative because it is easily disrupted or displaced by the next moment of activity that occurs in the mindstream. This type of stillness is simply an experience among experiences–what the Tibetans call nyam (temporary experience).”
