Why do teachers and students waste so much time talking about Eastern Philosophical concepts, which are more advanced, or mature, or balanced than other teachers and teachings?
This does not help their own realizations one iota. It is just a pissing contest, sometimes motivated to win students or a following, or in a good-hearted way because they don't want people to follow the wrong teaching.
Why don't teachers talk about their own awakening experiences and day to day realizations instead of about Atman, Brahman, TurIya, Causal Body, witness, ego, personal self, mind in the abstract, and talk about what they know and feel in experience-near terms, such as joy, bliss, sorrow, grief, sense of presence, energies, lights, grace and what they mean by the experience of God or the divine?
Or talk about the experience of Kundalini without all the Eastern terms.
Because discussion of "reality" in the abstract IS A HUGE DIVERSION FROM ONE'S OWN IMMEDIATE EXPERIENCE AND SELF-REALIZATION.
Only by going within, deeper than mind, will anything worthwhile be discovered.
