Now with that I have a few problems and i hope i don't sound racist, but people of the amazonas aren't exactly known for being the inventors of great things.
And I don't just deem them to be different. They are. I can fly in dreams, not in reality.
If I dream about rotten tomatoes it is a sign I am having issues with my love life.
If I see them in reality, it means I need to go shopping.
Teaching and guiding, yes. But real as reality, no.
And even if you read about meditation from someone from India you are loading yourself with even more expectations. And don't free yourself from which you was brought up with. Not that I think you do that, but as an example how the "catalogue of expectations" is an inevitable growing thing.
And I am all pro new ways, but reality has to stay real and the distinction is valuable.
One of the things "she" tries to get you to do, once you can perceive "her" is to promise yourself to "her" for all eternity.. and "she" plays all these "suffering Boddhisattva movies" in your mind..
It's an interesting "pickle" to be in..
You DO want to love "Her". But it's also a "Trap". It's a no-win situation, without an answer.. at least I don't have one.. All I've been able to do, is to "love her" equally as much as Iove everything else.. without showing "Her" any favoritism whatsoever... that way.. she gets "Her" love.. and protects me and doesn't get all tricksey on me (much), but I don't fall under "Her" spell.
Glamour in Scots meant enchantment, magic or witchcraft. It also meant a spell, especially one that affected the eyesight of the recipient of the spell, as in to cast the glamour ower the een. If this happened to you, your view of things became very different from the reality.
I really wish that I could be more specific.. give some perfect "cosmic answer" and wave my spirit rattle and solve everyone's answers. But I can't.

For one human being to seek understanding and enlightenment from another human being...
That's like one atom seeking understanding and enlightenment from another atom.
Anything that you NEED casts a spell on you... Anything that you truly love needs YOU. I truly love 'Her', so she needs me.
