Dancing on the high-wire, hm? Careful, careful...
I think what the OP is talking about is certainly possible, it is the grounding of much of the mystical tradition in cultures all over the world...shamanic ecstacy/transport at the earliest stage, kundalini yoga, highest yoga tantra in Tibet, esoteric Buddhism throughout east asia, all the various ecstasies of the saints in the west, the visions of hermits, mystics, and alchemists....this has always been with us. It's not for everyone, but it is an option.
I don't know what to say by way of advice but it is true that playing with these powerful energies without knowing what you are doing can be dangerous...ratchet it down if it gets too intense, err on the side of caution. It's never all or nothing, there are plenty of gentler ways to get to the same place and in the end its all about Coming Home, no matter how you get there. Good luck and Godspeed...edit on 8/4/11 by silent thunder because: (no reason given)
