This subtle, celestial stuff is absolutely,
incredibly, charming, fascinating, mind-blowing when
it opens-up, but  it really has nothing to do with
Realization. Like the TM-siddhis, the value is in the
practice of samayama, not in the attainment of a
particular siddhi itself. That really doesn't mean
anything in the context of Realization. Talking to the
diety of your mantra is like talking to the bus driver
who's taking you someplace. Fascinating guy, but
nothing to do with your destination.
