You're right, when I saw the title - first thought was, What? Someone is bringing this up?
But, it's none of my business.
It's different times and the internet spills the beans on most everything.
There are gurus in India that don't know about this, nor teach it; that's
how esoteric it has been.
I do still think guidance should be honored and sought.
People can do crazy things, probably similar to kundalini with a novice.
Discipline and patience and reverence is important.
Grace is very much involved.
And running, that's amazing. :)
