my point is that there is point in
deep meditation where to the "mind"
doesn't and can NOT follow, that is
why doubted MM recollections. I
think that those "inner-vistas" were
set up by his line os Saints
as I belive, that Buddhist mystics
'set up' the Bardo: they are both
mirages, held by mystics of a various lineages
I always rejected when in meditation
I was presented with a detailed
[can be put in words] inner-vistas [astral-travels] they have value
only if one is able to understand the language of the subconscious, or dreams
The "cleaning" is faster in the
abstract and cleaning IS the value
The fact is that all those experiences
are sing-posts besides "cleaning"
of the subconscious [karma by the
Indians; include emotional input
