Hi Carl, the problem for now, imo, is that personal sacred experiences are of such general rarity OR subject to such social self-censorship, that we are conditioned to think of miracles and mystical experiences as only occurring in remote antiquity, when the 'dominant' religions were born. That's all well and good, but I prefer to look for the same kind of information in the unfolding present, and I have. Well worth enshrining, or guarding against gradual erosion - those sacred memories.

I'll go one step further, Carl. I am a person of modest accomplishments at best, but if there is one thing that I look back on in my life with true satisfaction, as if I did hit at least one Soul Urge in this incarnation, it must be the recognition of have acquired regarding how my own sacred episodes inter-connect. The order to which I refer compares well to the best Mayan information that I know of, relative to its own local (personal) context. The things that I have discovered, so subtle yet unarguably present, are all things I could have easily have missed, had I not treated those episodes with a level of reverence or contemplation that was, in its own way, religious.
I have found much satisfaction in that observation, Carl.
Stay well, PBB
