But I object to contrived mysteries. A true mystery is something that occurs as a result of being alive. You can learn from it, so talking about it can be good.Paladin said:I agree. There is something about certain teachers who have a knack for putting very complex things into simple language.
I can't help but be curious what that was, but I guess you can't tell me.I am often amazed at the simple language that expresses something it took me years to comprehend.
I'm not seriously seeking any more plateaus or unveiling, mostly. I genuinely want to make a difference in the world. I think you understand this. Let's say you realize that bugs are people, too. How are you going to live without ever killing one or in some way supporting the deaths of innocent insects? Suppose you are The Atom, a character able to change both your size and density and to shrink down to examine individual electrons. You still have to be normal size in order to have a life! Living through revelation after revelation is like seeing more of the universe -- you know your tiny size better but can live with it less.There is a point I think where your understanding takes off from the texts and prayers and becomes alive. I believe Maslow refers to this as a Plateau experience.
