Miraculous Powers

NASA Public domain

In training the body and mind together with the guidance of those far along the path, witnessing and experiencing so-called superhuman powers becomes commonplace. Contrary to our experience of reality, but perfectly aligned with the principles of physics below the atomic level, many aspects of our world unfold in strange ways for those who seek the path. It is sad that people seek out the flashy, Hollywood-like powers and miss powers so far beyond normal understanding which lie right in front of them. Though the show is minimal, how great is the master who feels no anger, greed, or hatred. How great is the master that does not allow desire and craving to ooze into his mind and cloud his decisions. How great is the master who allows not a single thought to manifest as he sits in deep meditation. These are the true superhuman powers, far beyond the reach of ordinary man and not to be duplicated by science or laboratories. If one stops looking for the fireworks, the miracles can be close at hand.

Very true and among all forms of meditation, I think Vipasana is best suited for this purpose. It really makes you equanomous-away from fear and greed.

Very true. While Samatha prepares one to sail, Vipasana is the sailing, so to speak.
