Intuition without peak states
I am sure other people have had similar experiences. The point is that some unusual experiences are not peak experiences, but other kinds of deep intuition.
I once had an experience after waking up in the morning where I reflected on the apparent paradox that there must logically be a creator, given that everything is caused by something else, yet that creator is somehow invisible to our senses. In other words. while there must be a creator, somehow it was nothing. How can nothing be something? In a sense, it must be physical, and 'there,' but how?
I then got an internal image of a fountain bubbling up constantly, always creating something new, changing, and very profound at the same time. That's the best way I can describe it. It was profound way beyond human understanding. This was not a peak experience.
Another time I spent some time thinking about a similar matter, the origin of it all, what must be there before the start of creation, and my mind simply could not process it. At some point, logic and even language break down. The human mind cannot go there. Later that day I reflected on what it meant, and I just got this understanding of crushing ignorance. It was so crushing on the ego that it was emotionally painful. Essentially, no matter what you believe, there is no way it is entirely correct. It's that simple. I think I then understood why spiritual teachers talk a lot about humility before the divine.
