Let me ask you a question

If for a minute we really believe in what physicists and women/men of God are telling us these days:  that all we see/perceive are just nerve impulses in our brains, that there is nothing “out there”, then…could it possible be that all those things people say about the intermediate series (see some bellow) actually conspire to create a cahotic life around the practitioner?

I mean, could it be that just the mere action of starting a series that I know will cleanse my nervous system (by disrupting it first, big time!), is conspiring in co creating around me a life that seems well, a bit disrupted?  or are these events complete uncorrelated and myself going mad?

What do people say about the intermediate series?

  1. Going as close as my yesterday’s post Ahu’s comment (who by the way inspired this one) talks about getting “edgy“, more “emotional
  2. My friend Eduardo whom I met in Mysore went as far as comparing the intermediate series to a washing machine that turns and churns your spine, so in so many words you will experience something close to hell (I am paraphrasing, he probably used dirtier words and spoke Spanish)
  3. People tell me they cry and release
  4. They stop eating
  5. Get really teary
  6. Fellow yogi Skippetty has documented her ordeal through part of second
  7. Your turn
Now that I think about it, all the time while I embarked on the Primary Series project (which is still in progress of course), it being the series of purification, my life got “purified“.  For example: I released a home I could not care for, weight, old habits, and learned about new habits that cleansed my body and my life.  My library now contains only books I love.  I got a lot more conscious of my spending, I became, dare I say: “more efficient“!  and “clean

Could it be then that as I enter the intermediate series I am firing new brain nerves which in turn are co-creating the supposedly expected reality?

What do you think?

    Good Question!<br />Second series has been a roller coaster for me for sure, but I&#39;m inclined to think the experiences were not based on my expectations or that I created them per se. My teachers say very little about their own experiences in practice and I knew almost nothing about others experiences in second when I started it. It was after almost a year of craziness that it first
