But, there is another kind of knowing that is different than deep knowing, even though the names are similar.
This is direct knowing.
You might think of it like this: deep knowing is how we are able to see, hear, or feel a truth, or a part of truth about a particular person, place, thing, situation, or relationship.
Direct knowing, is when we experience spiritual truths directly.
For example, in deep knowing, you might pick up a person’s wounds, past trauma, and emotions immediately and without background or familiarity: you see an unknown person at the grocery store, and you just “know” everything about this person.
In direct knowing, you might be walking in the woods or meditation or just doing nothing, and suddenly your entire being dissolves and you know yourself as That.
There is no story, no symbol, no emotion. You just exist as a spiritual truth.
We use deep knowing all the time. Direct knowing, is something that might come to us a few times in a lifetime, if we are lucky.
Think about the difference: between the more homey way of deep knowing, and the bigger, fully expanded, holy way of direct knowing.
They’re both wonderful. They both complement each other. And they are both yours, when you start to open, relax, and pay attention.
