      Yo Papajeff,
      Thanks for this very eloquent and right on
      post. It stimulated thoughts within
      that went towards thinking about the word
      "enchanted", in regard to its meaning of
      something like bewitched or under a spell.
      And this leads to the concept of meditation
      as being a way to awaken and break out of the
      spells/delusions that we are under, such as
      that we are apart from the rest of the universe
      instead of a part of all and everything, or
      that we are (what happens to) our body, our
      mind, our emotions, etc., or that "Thy will
      be done" doesn't apply to us and that we
      "can do", and so on and so on. And to mimic
      and paraphrase your last line, 'And the one who
      enters into meditation emerges as an ancient
      creation with understanding and joy that is
      our real baseline.'
      Thanks again.
      Peace and blessings,
      Bob
