Your desire to KNOW is absolutely necessary to tread the Path
to any length. It is the only true motivator toward the spiritual light that I
know of. I know that it can be annoying it almost wrecked my marriage!
but it can kindle into an inner spiritual light some day if it hasn't already.
The fact that you are not an intellectual is irrelevant. The smartest
intellectual will get nowhere at all without that inner desire to know
EVERYTHING that you so eloquently describe. Most intellectuals for
example think they know everything already and so are not motivated
to keep going. Your post was great and monads and elementals
are thought-provoking topics to explore.
