So you’re either saying that you consider clairvoyance, clairaudience and the like are what you were referring to as superpowers, or I’m not following. If it is the former, those aren’t considered superpowers, this isn’t a television show. I also think that claiming people have never seen others possessing such abilities is disingenuous, there are people that perform group rituals, as well as group rituals in the Astral. Lastly, I doubt people require your yogic scriptures to acquire these abilities, since, you know, every culture on the planet had magic long before they were exposed to yogic ideas…
So you should be perfectly aware of my point regarding the fact that yogic ideology is far removed from what most consider LHP. Since most of their ideas regarding immortality revolves around destruction of the self…
This point was addressed in my previous post. And to some extent yes. But Taoism like the Western occult is extremely broad, our interpretations of LHP and RHP can be applied to it. Our interpretation of LHP does not exist in Buddhism or Hindu. I’ve already mentioned this, their LHP is our RHP. Taoism has many sects, most have different beliefs. I’ve mentioned two sects above, the Lotus and the Mao Shan, vastly different ideals. The Lotus tradition doesn’t really work with chakras. The Mao Shan tradition uses them only if you feel the need to.
Ovid, a great Roman, once said, “It is right to learn, even from your enemies.” The Chinese elements (Wu Xing) aren’t elements in the Western sense, one should learn from them. Taoist sects all tend have different goals with regards to inner alchemy.
Edit: On the subject of your claim that people seek abilities that they haven’t ever seen people possess. I think you’re mistaking the “Enlightenment culture” plaguing the Western world today with others. Are you saying there aren’t people who have more superstitious cultures around the world? The Rodnovery and Sami? The Asiatic cultures aren’t superstitious when they have all kinds of Taoist, Buddhist, and Hindu priests that remove curses or heal them?
In my country, the majority (blacks) are highly superstitious, and generally believe in muti, magic, which is why they sacrifice other people, especially albinos. Long before I was into magic, when I was a teen, I had multiple objective spiritual experiences. From hearing a spirit make strange noises in a living room full of really scared young teens, to being flung across a room, to watching people in the township (I used to deliver chemicals to rural schools since I used to work at a cleaning chemical manufacturer) getting dragged by strange forces.
This might seem like mumblings to you, but perhaps your “Enlightenment culture” has deprived you of these experiences, not me. You can look up “Muti killings South Africa” anytime.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILqbQckeUa0
Perhaps part of the objective reality in your part of the world is a subjective reality in other parts, which is why you’re less likely to believe in objectively experienced spiritual phenomena.
