My travail with the concept began about 2003 when, all of a sudden, while I was driving for my job, I had THE THOUGHT THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO AGREE WITH, which came upon me. I turned off of the road and screamed NO, NO, NO!!
Ever since, I have had to TOLERATE, yet reject the premise of that thought, since it was insane to me. As a schizophrenic, I have had various degrees of madness pervade my life at different times for different reasons. In 1990 it was religious and quite pervasive. In 1992 it was more eclectic and very hallucinogenic.
I must agree that I must get over this nonsense. However the Yoga Sutras include The Extraordinary Powers that make a reference to a similar concept, which I will leave you to research on your own. When you see a reference to a capacity for unusual power having to do with size, then you'll understand the dilemma I face. Much of Asian concepts are HARD TO ACCOMODATE no matter what depth one is accustomed to.
I say, better to leave alone ANY philosophy one is not attuned to, lest one "go mad". I don't enjoy the DETAILS of Eastern knowledge.
Western knowledge is more acquiescent than Eastern knowhow. In fact, Western ideas are more settled into the consolation mode of thinking, whereas, Eastern ideas are RIGOROUS and DEFIANT to the self-image of unacqainted Western minds.
So, I must stay stable as is possible, to this day. I do say that, at least, I have looked into the differing modes of consciousness from the many varieties of choice. I am a Western mind, that is all there is to it: even Egyptian ideas are more tolerable to study, and I relish such knowhow.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
