Buddha's path is to experience reality
by S. N. Goenka
Observing, observing you will reach the stage when you
experience that the entire physical structure is nothing but subatomic
particles: throughout the body, nothing but kalapas (subatomic particles).
And even these tiniest subatomic particles are not solid. They are mere
vibration, just wavelets.
The Buddha's words become clear by experience: Sabbo pajjalito loko,
sabbo loko pakampito. The entire universe is nothing but combustion and
As you experience it yourself you experience that the entire material world
is nothing but vibration. We have to experience the ocean of infinite waves
surging within, the river of inner sensations flowing within, the eternal
dance of the countless vibrations within every atom of the body. We have to
witness our continuously changing nature. All of this is happening at an
extremely subtle level. These kalapas (subatomic particles) according to the
Buddha, are in a state of perpetual change or flux. They are nothing but a
stream of energies, just like the light of a candle or an electric bulb. The
body (as we call it), is not an entity as it seems to be, but is a continuum
of matter and life-force coexisting.

"The union of spirit and flesh creates a subtle new harmony.
Two unique worlds come together, and through our hearts unite into one.
For it is only in the voice of the flesh, that the song of the spirit is finally sung."
