Hey, Bob. Yes, Susan loves the
teachings of Yogananda and has
been positively influenced by
them. And I find his take on the
teachings of Jesus to be some of
the most lucid and pleasing (to me)
I have read.
As for the 'blinding chaos and whirling paradoxes',
the rational mind reels at them, but the mind of
the mystics revel in them - especially the Whirling
Dervishes from the Sufi tradition, like Rumi.
