>>After all, it couldn't possibly be true simply because I say I know it, or have experienced it... But some dusty old book says the same thing, well hey--that's OK then.
So if I told you that I experience heaven on earth in communion with Jesus Christ ...... by simply accepting that He is God and communing with Him, would you believe me?
The dusty old books contain historic records of events that occured at the dawn of time ... interesting to me ... for others worthless
>>My knowledge does not come from books but from experience and a living
Where did your adept get his knowledge ... from another adept who in turn got it from another adept ... from another adept ... from another adept .... Why do you trust this knowledge? What if He is lying to you to spare you painfull truth?
I view truth on this "plane" like this:
1) Whatever is true here will always be true - like the individual instruments playing a symphony.... the individual violin is now, the violin and the flute together are a higher plane and so on.... the whole orchestra is the highest "plane". This does not mean that the violin does not play the right notes, just because it's solo here..... it plays the same notes (truth) solo as it does in orchestra.
