Wisdom is revealed that living things are assemblages of sentient superstrings and that we may rearrange our assemblages to be free of the limitations of the world we perceive. We. are entangled. We can seek freedom through the creation of the double and engage in non-local activities. There exist sentient beings who are not inhabitants of our current world view, the inorganic beings. There is so much more to reality than the outdated paradigm of mechanical materialism.
Those who criticize this as a rehashing of other ancient wisdom teachings definitely did not understand what was said here. Those who criticize this work for lack of character development must have mistakenly thought they were reading a fictional novel and not a true accounting of tales which transcend the ordinary.
Warning, you cannot comprehend this through intelligence and ego, you must have some experience with the higher forms of perception, the second and third attention: or at least some experiences with deep meditation or 'the seventh sense'. This book is about stopping the mind and accessing direct perception. If you are a searcher for higher wisdom and have experienced more than the ordinary, then this book is a timeless treasure.
There were a number of incredible stories in "The Fire from Within" that highlight the difference between how I was taught Reiki and how I teach Reiki. I wonder if all teachings can claim these big differences or if they are specific to the naguals.
All in all, this was a good read for anyone who enjoys reading about different ways to work energy.
