On the basis of the evidence I have seen, I suspect you could hypnotise any suggestive person to believe the back of a Cornflakes packet was the word of god (see mr green Kumaris). I must try sometime ...
I hope ex-I does try. It is not often that I play the part of soothsayer but here goes. Please keep in mind as you read the following that you should read it as if the writer has a lithp and has nothing against cornflakes, cornflake packets, ex-I or :mrgreen:.
In time any temporary benefit (reward of faith in the words written on the back of cornlake packets) would cease, then ex-I would get down to the real work. True he could be distracted by a lot of munching and crunching for a time but sooner or later he would begin to wonder why he was receiving no guidance in building a constructive life for himself. He, in his investigations may even encounter the information that for rats the packet was more much more nutricious than the flakes and try that. No matter how deeply a hypnotic suggestion is planted in the mind it will sooner or later surface and for ex-I I truly hope that it would be sooner rather than later. If this did not happen ex-I would be referred by friends and family to a doctor to be treated for overdose of cardboard.
When the doctor checked this out and gave his diagnosis it would be a great surprise to ex-I, (for how could the word of God when ingested lead to any problem) regardless he would be referred to a psychiatrist. I understand that Cornflakes are available on psychiatric wards so his munching on the word of God could continue for a short while but the shrink would be vigilant and friendly. He would take ex-I aside and say "try yoghurt there is much more culture in it." Ex-I would intuit that that his now best friend (the shrink) was there to help him and he had nothing to lose so he'd decide to try his advice. In a few days he would start to feel much better. Perhaps ex-I would think "the ingesting of yogurt is the true god". His relections would continue, he would even think thoughts about the difference between what inside the packet and what was written on it. Please now drop the lithp.
We are, (those who have encountered Murlis) what is inside the packet, the Murli, what is outside the packet, tells us how we are and what we will become. As the study progresses we become less what we are and more what we will become, this is the Murlis wonder. All kinds of minds examine the Murli, for deep study one must examine oneself as deeply as one does the Murli. If one chooses to not to examine and instead ex-I-amines cornflake packets as spoken through the mouth of :mrgreen: you now know where it may lead.
