I find some daily meditations actually require a bit of thought. They are not always a simple statement that sounds good.
I often find Sri Aurobindo as a challenge, he rarely states anything that is understandable to the lazy-minded.
So today I was looking at the quote:
"They told me, "These things are hallucinations." I inquired what was a hallucination and found that it meant a subjective or a psychical experience which corresponds to no objective or no physical reality. Then I sat and wondered at the miracles of the human reason."
Well, sounds nice. However, what is the piece really about. Does the first sentence really relate to the second? Then comes the insight and purpose for his statement. Human Reason fits the definition of hallucination; The definition of hallucination is a hallucination by the grand thinker who defined the term. At that, one must marvel at the irony. So, yes:
“Then I sat and wondered at the miracles of the human reason”
Currently DSM-IV defines hallucinations as follows:
“A sensory perception that has the compelling sense of reality of a
true perception but that occurs without external stimulation of the
relevant sensory organ.”
