Did a (permanent) change in that perspective take place when you started to "see"?
i have to give a warning here.
Every person is unique, every liberation is unique.
There may be parallels (or not) between your experience and mine.
The answer is NO. For me it was a subtle, gradual awakening.
Which probably says more about brain conditioning, habit than awakening.
i spent over 40 years trying to 'think' myself into a fantasy called enlightenment.
Part of the fantasy was that there would be a 'sonic boom' when it happened.
Oh! the relief that would occur with such a definite knowing.
Looking back it was probably that orgasmic release that would come with 'knowing' that i anticipated mostly.
When i accepted that there was a 'crack' that i could look through and see 'it', i also accepted how 'ordinary' it all is. This then led on to a state where a 'bleed in' through that 'crack' facilitated a seeing that 'What is in my direct experiencing, is all that IS' and that everything else is part of a story. (not real - to me)
i'm having a little trouble expressing this. Maybe i'll come back to it later.
Yeah, the 6 seconds was a bit hard for me to swallow too, but the principle remains.
It's the organism, the brain - pre-thought, that makes the decision.
The mind (thoughts) kicks in later and claims ownership and gives the decision meaning and purpose - all needlessly.
