What is Experiencing?

Using the living the questions approach (can I be with what I am experiencing?), I have been able to get back into a more regular meditation practice again. Whenever resistance to sitting comes up, I allow myself to be with the resistance - which takes the charge out of it.

This morning, I sat with the koan What is Experiencing?

It is clear that luminous space is experiencing. There is a fluid organism and personality - with fluid sensations, emotions, thoughts - but no center and nothing fixed. There is also a relative dullness (from lack of regular sitting practice) so the luminous awareness is - still - relatively local. Just around the head and body.
