Exponential frequency of satoris

Postby Hermes » Mon Sep 16, 2013 3:18 pm

"satoris" meaning "peak spiritual experiences" or "illuminations" that dont last, but whose repetition and "building up"of their impacts will lead to/are connected to ones further permanent illumination as such(adepthood or more).

As those satoris frequency seems exponential along the path, could you say what is known about this? For instance, say a guy has a satori per year for 4 years, then twice a year for three, then once a month for one, then twice a month for 6 months, and so on up to adepthood where he's permanently illuminated.

Are there averages "curves" known? Are some of such rythms known to correspond to anything? Or does it tend to be very variable?

I would imagine the the variable of frequency depends on the individual. If you could practice without interruption I would imagine that the growth would be fast and exponential. I don't think that peak illuminations as you describe are necessarily the goal but rather an effect of doing the work.

There is only one way to find out for sure, and that is the Scientific Illuminist way: Do the work and find out yourself through your own observations.

Highly variable,
Two major factors:
Aspirant & Practices
Until it becomes a Willed action

What lays past
Smirking, a distraction
From task in hand
Crushed universe

Though, at some point it just becomes normal.
Mundane, hum drum, a beetles bum
Examining, now
Form it takes
There is only one verse,
sung in infinite ways.
I come or came?
I sung!
To seeD the Way
God sings,
WE experience:
