|One sees this (self) as a wonder. Another speaks of it as a wonder. Another hears of it as a wonder. Yet having heard, none understands it at all.|
Wonder is self-realization. The ultimate experience is non-dual and, therefore, inexpressible. It is not had by the mind. The self is conscious of itself. It cannot be put into words, nor even formed as a concept within oneself, yet one who has had that experience tries to speak of it and can only say: "It is a wonder!"
The disciple listens to the master's inexpressible
wonderment at the transcendental experience. He is thrilled; yet it remains beyond the
three acts of seeing, description and hearing.
