A “SECRET TEST”.
The test of whether someone has experienced the true Mystical Experience of Reality, (MER), does not include checking their merely human “fruits”.
“Fruits” are usually taken to mean “good works”, being “legal, decent and honest”, “moral” and “ethical” expressing the “10 Commandments” in your life and suchlike.
But these “fruits” are of the human spirit, not the real spirit of total Reality in all its aspects.
These “fruits” of the human spirit are merely human, temporal, as the religions would say – not of the Real Spirit as experienced in MER.
They are just human stuff because MER is not interested in humans as such. There is much more afoot in existence than being merely human. Anything merely human is a digression from the real thing, just human devilry.
So beware religions being self destructively anthropomorphic, because MER is not soley concerned with humans, cannot be evangelised or replicated, even with drugs inducements.
Yet some scientists are researching to see if drugs can in fact replicate the “fruits”. They claim MER can be triggered by a psychotropic drug that already exists in mammals, including humans. Permanent psychological effects have been noted in some test subjects.
Drugs do not give the lifetime development that MER individuals experience.
Bizarre experiences in these drug tests suggest strange, indeterminate beings, animals, aliens, changing environments, sexual experiences, phenomena, unfriendliness, and feelings of self aggrandisement. These are nothing to do with MER.
The ancients and modern teachers in the spiritual schools warn against such effects even in meditation. They teach how to ignore such unreal distractions from the pure, patient collected waiting involved in meditation practiced by sincerely caught Seekers.
No wonder buddhists ejected one renowned western university doctor, a buddhist member himself, for using drugs to attempt the replication of “spiritual” experiences.
However, this particular researcher does at least acknowledge no obvious correlation of his drug induced experiences with the much more refined and purposely focused, effective and spontaneous experiences of MER.
MER is a lasting effect, exteriorly, not interiorally directed. We are taken out, not in. MER is caught, not taught – or injected.
Is this why the natural drugs inside us aren’t triggered into life in everyone? Why aren’t they? And what would trigger such drugs in just some of us anyway?
One scientist even says MER can be roused by the affectiveness of the Hebrew bible. Those who have experienced MER dismiss this kind of “fruit” as typically emotional “mind stuff”, human spirit not the Real Spirit. Being moved, excited, exhuberant, physically shaken or made to cry is no indication of experiencing the fruits of MER.
So how do you observe the absence or presence of the real fruits of MER? You don’t.
Only those who have experienced MER can test the authenticity of the experience in others.
They can sort “the sheep from the goats”.
To me this secret seems obvious, out in the open, but apparently it is closely guarded by Reality against human meddling.
Is this Reality’s way of keeping MER out of the hands of the unprepared, the mythomanically religious, the merely curious, the emotionally fragile – even the sincerely scientific?
