a little mental drool
Like a single raindrop drooling down the mental window pane ...
Maybe it's like this...
In the beginning, everything is seen but nothing is clear.
Later, nothing is seen but everything is clear.
And later still, clear and unclear lose their excitement:
It's just raining after all.
Some people use spiritual life as a means of escaping the world.
Some people use spiritual endeavor as a means of engaging the world.
But I don't think spiritual life works like that.
Saying I don't think spiritual life works like that does not mean I know how it does.
