From the perspective of my mystic experiences of Reality, (MER), The Upanishads, Vedanta, Bhagavad Ghita are flawed.
One way or another, they do acknowledge MER as seminal to their moral and ethical teachings in a roundabout way but only sometimes and never go into any detail.
They also seem to suggest books and learning from ‘the ancients’ of India can take you into MER.
True mystics will tell you MER is caught, not taught.
Sometimes you get an acknowledgement that some human beings were and already are in that state, but without any attempt at explaining the nature and likelihood of this phenomenon.
They also claim all religions are based on the findings of these ‘ancients’. They’re not!
Religions and the Upanishads, Vedanta, Bhagavad Ghita are humanised shadows of the real thing – Reality.
Reality as revealed in the MERs is the existent foundation of all things, then, now and forever.
Another flaw is the apparent necessity of the Upanishads, Vedanta, and Bhagavad Ghita to goad us into at least faith, hope and belief as a substitute for the real thing – MER.
They lace their message with promises of ecstatic bliss and worldly satisfactions. So do most religions, with notable exceptions I’ll leave to your personally experienced satisfaction of discovery on your particular path.
You cannot be goaded into MERs by worldly promises. Even drugs don’t give you the MER experience, not from the scary, unlikely mental experiences imbibers and scientists describe, not if my spontaneous experiences are true.
MER comes from a Reality way outside any such inducements. It is benign, anaesthetically suffusing, loving beyond human experience – not traumatic, goading or beyond our receptive abilities.
The other flaw in these works is their assumption that whatever the ‘ancients’ experienced is always for the betterment of humanity. If this was true there’s a long way for humanity to go before it tackles its historic circular repetition of its same old, same old history.
We are getting somewhere materially, technically, and are living longer, more healthily, are better clothed, housed, fed, watered, and ‘educated’, though some still aren’t, but we are not developed in the fullness of our real state of spirituality – yet spirituality is the very heart of all known and unknown existence, including us, if what the MERs reveal are true.
Clearly, Reality’s revelation of what lies beyond human experience has something else in mind for humans than anything even human exploration of the cosmos, science fiction or religions and modern or derived philosophies, including The Upanishads, Vedanta, Bhagavad Ghita, can dream of …
All Is Well.
