Hi Devi - This is a most interesting topic. I want to recount an experience I had with Osho: It was a large meditation meeting with thousands present. The energy was so intense. At a certain point, everyone raised both hands and pointed them at Osho. I was way way back in the crowd and could energetically feel that this was absolutely incorrect.
The energy was coming straight from above.
There were 10,000 people pointing their hands at Osho, and one idiot standing absolutely still, pointing the palms of his hands up to the sky.
The point is, the Energy that has to do with eventual Enlightenment is not the property of a person at all. This Emptiness is everywhere. The whole Universe would actually not exist without it, as in actual Physics. The art of Enlightenment is to become aware of the little quantum gaps where the Emptiness shines through.
So it's tricky stuff! But I know you already know that.
