“Enlightenment is a constant state, not (just) an instant experience.” Mysticism and Miracles
In my experiences I was certainly “instantly”, spontaneously “enlightened” as to the Reality that rules existence. The influence of these experiences has remained as my guide, guard, comfort and provider ever since.
It was only when I was thrust back ‘kicking and screaming’ into the world that I discovered I am marooned in this runaway brain atop a biological ‘human’ robot that produces and wallows in the unreal, mythomanic human condition.
I was not comforted then and am not now.
Ford said “history is bunk”. Was he implying “humanity is bunk”?
More charitably, mystic experiences suggest humanity is simply at a painfully primitive stage of an evolutionary progress.
Mercifully, we’re told the human/robot’s brain and shelf life are limited to 80 to 120 years …
All Is Well.
