I can see why religions get started over it though, it's easy to think
that what is happening inside accurately reflects what's happening
outside, and when you get a change of perception like that you might
think you are seeing a deeper level of external reality but what we
see of the world is created in our heads anyway so changes to that are
changes in how our consciousness is created neurophysiologically.

I don't think I'd make a very inspiring guru but people reacted
differently to me when I was like it, bit of ultra blissed darshan for
the guys at work. Maybe I would have got promoted quicker if it had
hung around. But I went to live with the TMO because of experiences
like this and they never came back. LOL!

experiences that convince you that you're "enlightened," no one (except
the gullible idiots on the Batgap Forum) will treat you any differently,
no one will think you're "wise," and no one will be any more impressed
by you than they ever have been." /**/*/*/- TurquoiseB /*/* /*
