''One intriguing phenomenon reported by those who have had glimpses of enlightenment is the experience of direct knowledge of reality that comes from within consciousness, as distinct from our usual modes of learning through the senses and intellectual concepts,'' writes Cynthia E. Johnson in a recent essay.

Ms. Johnson quotes several accounts, both historical and contemporary, expressing ''this phenomenon of direct knowledge,'' including one by 17th-century Christian writer Jacob Boehme:

The gate was opened to me that in one quarter of an hour I saw and knew more than if I had been many years together at a university. . . . For I saw and knew the being of all beings. . . . I saw in myself . . . the external and visible world. . . . And . . . the whole working essence.

And bestselling author Anita Moorjani: ''. . .there are no words that can come close to describing its depth and the amount of knowledge that came flooding through. . . . You're left with a sense of awe over everything you experienced in those blindingly lucid moments. Life has taken on a different meaning. . . .''

''How is this possible?'' Ms. Johnson asks. ''To do justice to this topic would require volumes, drawing from modern physics, ancient traditions, and contemporary accounts. I highly recommend The Supreme Awakening by Craig Pearson, who covers these areas with fascinating insight and examples.

''But for now, we can summarize: human beings have the potential to directly experience, within the silent depths of their awareness, a field of pure knowledge.

''The invisible, unmanifest field of pure knowledge is like the blueprint for all of creation. This field is also called the 'home of all the laws of nature' and the field of 'total knowledge.'

''It has been proposed by a number of physicists that the unmanifest field of natural law that underlies material creation—the unified field—is one and the same field of creative intelligence that we humans may experience in the silent depths of our own awareness.''

Enjoy the full article by Cynthia Johnson on the Excellence in Action page, which goes on to recount a discussion with her father, a Protestant minister, about the direct experience of this field of pure consciousness during the practice of Transcendental Meditation.

* Cynthia E. Johnson is a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation program who also holds a Master of Theological Studies degree from Harvard Divinity School. She is a contributor to the book A Symphony of Silence: An Enlightened Vision, by George Ellis.
