Re: Naturally occuring

So it all boils down to your asserting the tenet: Teacher is mandatory for everything. Do not try to think or analyse or read or study or practice or contemplate (or sleep or eat or ... ?) or do anything on your own because you cannot do anything on your own. Why?

Re: From a Namdrol post: socialism/capitalism

Some of us are aware of this BUT Enochian needs to be aware that the statistics on which the monetarist fantasy world are based on, actually show that, even in this fairytale reality, the bits of the puzzle just don't fit together.

Re: Naturally occuring

Just try and experience for yourself whether it is wholesome or unwholsome to practice accordingly. A little difficult when one considers that most of us here are steeped in ignorance, it would be better to report feelings/experiences to a teacher with some level of experience and realisation. :nam...
