Richard, I don't disagree with anything you have said, but
I do have a question. What happens when "improving Self-awareness"
results in the awareness that "psychic, magical, etc. abilites" are inherent
within our higher Self? What if "Self-awareness" and "abilites" are
the same thing? I understand, of course, that there is a difference
between awareness and use. Should we, perhaps, ignore the connection,
once made, as Eldon suggests?
