Barefoot Doctor Bit: What's the Boundary Between Faith and Delusion?

Barefoot Doctor: "The key to recognising the boundary comes from being able to distinguish the signals originating from your so-called higher mind or spirit from those arising from the delusory mush in the trash of your unconscious mind.

Signals from the former - if you allow yourself to be silent and sensitive enough to be aware of them- will cause your body to feel light and your mind to feel peaceful, while signals from the latter make you feel heavy and manic.

Signals from the higher mind also tend to concern the next small step you have to make for your adventure to blossom, while signals from the deluded mind tend to provoke grandiose scenarios. That's not to say you shouldn't spend time visualising the bigger picture of the life you want ideally, but that's a different story altogether.

Follow the impulses that fill your body and mind with lightness of being and ignore those that make your thoughts race and temples throb."
