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.
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.
"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai ... eleft.html
