      That's all well and good. But the idea that
      this happens by way of a magical transferrence
      of some kind of mystical energy is bullshit.

      It happens over time by way of deconditioning
      and added clarity brought about by meditation.

      You don't get something for nothing, and there's
      no magical powers to do it for you.
