Posts designed ‘crazy’, disregard?

Time to move on. Some of the material here is ‘designed crazy’ if only to make it open to your own skepticism.
Without any luck you are a no body unknown to the spiritual mafias of yoga and sufism. Seize your opportunity to stock up things like raja yoga, and then move on quietly to your own disguised meditation. Chances are you don’t need such precautions. It’s crazy. But some do.
