Simply being with what's there goeswith (as Alan Watts may have said) a sense of wholeness and completion and satisfaction (and joy), sometimes called "ecstasy" or "bliss".
The ancient Hindu mystics and Vedic pundits had a name for this. They called it "satchitananda" which roughly translates from the Sanskrit to "the bliss (ananda) of being conscious of (chit) the absolute (sat)" - in other words "absolute bliss consciousness" (it's the absolute component of what's so).
Whereas the ancient Hindu mystics and Vedic pundits invested their time and energy trying to realize absolute bliss consciousness, in noticing the absolute is just what's so, Werner distinguishes there's a sense of joy (ecstasy) which goeswith simply being with it ie which goeswith simply being with what's there.
There's nothing significant about it, and he's careful not to fall into the trap of making it significant by pre-qualifying his sharing (the source quote at the start of this essay) with "As stupid as it sounds ...".
