Sheldrake is, in my opinion, in the same (slightly beyond) the current authors with their magnanimous claims. I consider Sitchin as an innovator of tales of the Sumerian past. I don't have anything to say about him. His work is "believe it or not".
At least Sheldrake has the capacity to include his life experiences as fruitful evidence of his Realizations during his life course.
As you know, I have said before that my schizophrenia gave me a vivid perspective of altered states, quite naturally. All of that is gone now, as the medication inhibits my subconscious impulses. It's all good, except that all of my youth is hindered by this current state. I can't remember dreams.
Well, oh well!! I can still think and contemplate heroes like Sheldrake. It takes guts to be forward thinking in these times of radical new concepts and experiments. I rejoice in all of it.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
