While gaining clarity as it applies to ego attachment may not equal happiness, it does clear the ground so that one can perceive in an intentional way that promotes it.
Happiness is not the goal. Imho.
I mean its possible impact on consciousness. All experience, most specifically emotionally impactful experience, is valuable to the evolution of consciousness and to the unfolding of future experience.
I agree. Were there no delusions, there'd be no movement, no way for existence to take place.
Truth is not a static realization, but a stream of increasing clarity.
In my case it was quite static, as if someone hit me with a bat in the head. Then you just start dreaming and trying to wake up again.
Feeling like you're losing you mind is likely just resistance to the call of greater understanding relative to currently held perspectives.
But in order to choose a better way, we must be willing to give up that which binds us.
Here it is again - a "better" way. There is no better way. I would say there is NO WAY at all from a mindless perspective.
