Question text

Though all religions aren’t paths to the tops of the same mountain, as you sometimes hear, all mysticism are. Learn one and you can understand them all. What is the typical attitude to words? 

Select one:

[removed]a. Rational arguments won’t help you. You have to do something, wu wei, meditation, and then you’ll start to have the experience.

[removed]b. None of these are right 

[removed]c. A third type is the Vision that spots the Virgin Mary standing on top of a tree, a religious miracle 

[removed]d. The two statements about useful vision that spots when the light is red, and a higher Vision of existence during or just after meditation– both of those are correct.
