It is the same old problem that all of us face. While manythings written
are very convincing, we need to keep in mind that the writer is just
writing about real things the writer may have personally experienced. The
reality cannot be put down even in 10,000 words and unless and until were
go beyond the words and understand the real facts first hand, it is just
belief. I guess when we have first hand knowledge, we will be able
appreciate how limited any description can be. So we are both thinking on
the same lines.

Sure, you are 100% right. Parroting anything is just second hand and makes
us second hand person. This is an issue that Krishnaji has tried to
repeatedly emphasize and understand our own illusion.

It is my pleasure. BTW, are there any other old msgs that I have not
responded? If so it is just an oversight and not intentional. Please e-mail
me privately and I will respond here.
