Harry has touched that space beyond thought. He knows firsthand that he is not his experience.
And, for forty-some years, he was caught up in varying degrees of thinking. He had a “normal” life, with problems and suffering and regret…the whole bit.
It may have looked like what he saw 40-some years ago was lost, while he was struggling in various ways. But he sees now that it wasn’t. It can’t be.
In fact, it’s been growing the entire time. I love how Harry speaks to how we can’t lose what we’ve seen, but we can absolutely think over what we’ve seen.
