Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

I don't mean to be negative or discourage anyone. I am just trying to be honest to provoke honest responses. If you want to slam me, of course you should feel free. Maybe I deserve it, maybe I should hear whatever you have to say.

Actually, I wasn't thinking of it like school at all. School I know I can finish.

The only comparison I can draw is to $cientology and I'm awfully sorry about that, but I can't think of a better, less offensive-on-the-surface comparison. What I mean is: they have many levels and you can work at it your whole life, but the odds that you will ever reach the level where you actually learn about Lord Xenu is probably not ever going to happen.

It is less discouraging, though, to realize level 9 in SMS is basically Rainbow Body, as you said. I didn't think I was going to achieve that, anyway, so thanks for mentioning that! :smile:
