What is nonsense about it? Can't believe your own eyes? Your mind trying to pull you back to boring mundane reality? What's nonsense is your lack of imagination regarding the mind.
and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; Isaiah 11;3
...You can cut an enlightened one, and the blade will pierce through the skin, making the one feel no pain, and not bleed, restoring skin and injured muscle/organs. Or the knife doesn't cut at all. Maybe he does bleed, but everything restores to the original circumstance...

I did try to edit my post but left it too late. I was in fact going to remove it as in hindsight I realised that anyone gullible enough to endorse or support this fakir/faker is a little shallow...for want of a better word.
I don't understand what is boring or mundane about this reality? I don't need a swami in a tent to know how wonderful and mysterious this life is and really my imagination knows no bounds...
By supporting this sort of nonsense you are displaying an inherently flawed spiritual mindset.
I take no pleasure in pointing this out...it is what it is.

Meditation is swarming our hospitals, prisons, schools, etc, and yet, we see nothing wrong with a religious practice being shoved down our throats. Why is it being pushed onto us? The trick of mediation - you are told that you are divine - but that to realise this "truth", one must attain "spiritual enlightenment" through the practice of meditation in order to perceive (experience) the "truth" of this "truth". To a generation devoid of faith and instead indoctrinated to believe in the objective was of science, the perceptions and experiences that meditation brings "proves" the "truth".
Tricksters that play to men's internal desires. Our Creator of Heaven and Earth commands that we maintain control over our desires and look to Him for spiritual discernment. [B]Can you not see that your words above are just the ploy they use on this generation that has been indoctrinated to follow the herd mentality and that have been indoctrinated to "group think" and not stand out? Your words appeal to that powerful indoctrination which has consumed our children.
That posters mind is HEALTHY, not infested nor tempted to eat your fruit that you are peddling.
