A mistake in starting place: female, male, or transcending path: “normal” development
By Goura Fotadar
It seems to me that if a being wants to a path of development that clearly demonstrates transcending mundane ideas of life to actual non-mundane ideas of life: there is no proven daily pathway that is considered “normal” or even “standard.” Why must it be that a forfeit of some “real” concept such as money or levels of luxury is deemed a necessity in the transcendence from a being requiring or so desiring transcendence of societal, emotional, even human conditions; to those greater than these. All ailments seem to be defined within a narrow box of human. Perhaps though that which seeks transcendence begins first with a shunning of human identification; for surely this is the greatest identifying trap.
