VIDEO: There is a fine line between madness and enlightenment--Robert Adams
It is not all bliss and divine energies that are encountered by those who seek the Self. Consciousness has many "layers" such that inner exploration is much like exploring new lands were for 18th Century explorers.
One encounters Subtle Body energies, Kundalini phenomena, porous boundaries of unitary Consciousness, No-self emptiness, the Void, the Void filled by the light of Consciousness, and for many, experiences of the world of shamans, astral projection, and awareness of a hidden world underneath the conventional world.
Some of these experiences can be frightening or even terrifying and may require medications to solidify boundaries and abate anxiety, and are not unlike hallucinatory experiences of a mental disorder. That is, there is a fine line between madness and enlightenment.
