That seems to be a somewhat common experience, that once one gives up searching and grasping after realization, it just happens. It occurs commonly enough in zen anyway.
I think the theory is that the mental energy and effort that one is using to chase enlightenment, is the very thing that is keeping something already existent from manifesting.Here
is an old chinese poem which touches on the subject.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself.
But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai/dune/giftsheleft.html
