Hi @Stingray, This is a question specifically for you because I don't think anyone else on this forum is anywhere near where you are in terms of deliberate creation, so I don't think anyone else is qualified to answer (note to others: no disrespect intended - just stating what I think is a fact, feel free to disagree).
I have discussed Robert Scheinfeld's work in a recent thread. I have now read two books by him and watched a 10-hour long video seminar. Things were going very well until I read the second book (The Ultimate Key to Happiness), and that has thoroughly messed with my head.
So what I'd like to know from you is, what life is like on the other side, after you cross the 'busting loose point' to use Scheinfeld's terminology - I am sure you know what I mean. I am talking about the point beyond which you start seeing physical reality as the illusion that it is, when you don't any more get depressed by the so-called 'bad', or don't get elated by the so-called 'good', when you start enjoying life as it comes, full of excitements and unknowns round every bend.
You have described this lifestyle in several of your posts in the past, which I read with fascination. Scheinfeld also is reportedly living the same kind of life. In fact you are the only two "real" contemporary people I know of who have reached that level.
My question is, how does deliberate creation work when you have reached such a stage? Does LOA matter any more? Do feeling good, vortex, etc matter any more? Even if things that most people would call "terrible" happen to you every day, you still enjoy what is, without judging and without trying to escape it. Why would you still want to touch the vortex? What's the worst that can happen if you don't? You accept what is anyway, so it doesn't matter what happens.
When you reach such a stage, how does desire work? When you say "I want xyz", do you then notice if you don't get it after some time? Do you analyse why you still haven't got it? Do you even say "I want xyz" any more? Why would you, if you are already enjoying what is all the time?
Can so called "terrible" things happen when you are living such a life? What do you do if such a thing happens? By terrible things I mean serious health problems, untimely loss of a very close relative, problems in business, lawsuits, insolvency, etc. If such things still happen, do you try to analyse why they happened, or continue accepting what is? Do you try to rectify the situation, or do you say "I know all of it is an illusion, a movie, and I am loving it, and I wouldn't change one bit of it"?
Thanks in advance, as always.
This question reminds me of this story :)
Your time would be better spent focusing on principles, not people.
Just a friendly suggestion :)
