  1. There is a cute joke about that:
    A Hindu yogi walked into the Zen Pizza Parlor and said: “Make one medium vegetarian.” When the yogi got the pizza, he gave the Buddhist monk a $20 bill. The monk pocketed the bill. The yogi asked “Don’t I get any change?” The monk replied, “Change must come from within.”

      1. Most people cannot get beyond their self-consciousness, so meditation or contemplation may help enable MER.

        You realize the Real beyond apparent realities, because your experiences come naturally from the outside.

        No two mystics are exactly alike. For many their experiences of Reality came both from within and from outside.

          Me: If I come across the reference to some recent university research showing meditation is/could be detrimental to self consciousness and ego I’ll send it to you. I didn’t read it as meditation is what I suppose could be called ‘contraindicative’ to my mystical state.

          Ron: You realize the Real beyond apparent realities, because your experiences come naturally from the outside.

          Me: Hmnnn. Hadn’t thought of that. A good thought, well observed. Thank you. I think physicists and brain specialists will eventually prove and see the significance of this outside influence on the reality of human existence.

          Ron: No two mystics are exactly alike. For many their experiences of Reality came both from within and from outside.

          You have much more experience of this than I do, for which I am very grateful. As hinted above, this is a dichotomy, an indicated genesis that if true will need very careful, dedicated human rather than mystical observation …
