Namaste John, Glad to see you bringing in the wisdom of the Buddha, Sankara and other sources (even down to modern perceptual psychology) in order to shed more light on authentic spirituality, free of various delusions, attachments and aversions. Sincere heart-minds all resonate in appreciation for the truly wholesome/holy life of which you write beyond mere cleverness, sophistry, apathy, callousness, or depersonalization syndromes bizarrely masquerading as "enlightenment." (Ah, "the karmas of jivas!") May all be awake to the Self of all selves, the Life of all lives, the Openness-Emptiness-Fullness of our True Nature.
