Hallo John and all,
My views are:
What you consider "normal practise" is maybe not so according to your own
Master. You could consider that.
Besides I have rewritten the original text, so it was better. Well at least
the 3rd edition is not that bad. >:-)
Else, Yes very interesting remarks you have.
You could try to read it again, as I am afraid you have not quite absorbed
and digested its content - and I do think it woul do you good.
Try this one:
"If you see a writer who has his own pen - he isn't one."
To put it more short:
"The lord, O Arjuna! is seated in the region of the heart of all beings,
turning round all beings (as though) mounted on a machine, by his delusion."
The Bhgavad Gita; - Chapter 18, v. 61
