    While teaching study skills at YC, I’ve come across similar ideas over the years. Auto pilot is a good name. Brush my teeth, take my meds, Feed the cat, make the bed, do my physical therapy and prayer. I’ve added homework everyday. Breakfast is often iffy!!!


    Was just sitting down at the computer to write to you.
    This is likely obvious to you; while doing my meditation and prayer this morning, I had the notion that before Abraham, Mohammad, Jesus, and the others, there was “God”, There had to be “something” out there that fueled their inspiration/realizations.
    I think you call it Ultimate Reality. I call it “energy”, Star Wars used “Force”, Quantum Physics call it the “field”. I still like the analogy in the text of many paths up the mountain, regardless of what the author put forth.
    As I wrote the last sentence, I realized that “out there” is dualistic language. I think we would not recognize “out there” unless we already knew it at some level withing ourselves. Be still and know………
