A standard question to particularly atheists and agnostics, is what would happen in your life if you met/heard /etc. God. The usual response is that they would seek mental health assistance. I would like your response to the following situation, including from religious folk as well as atheists/agnostics:
A supernatural being come to you, lets say a angel (easier to understand then God), at the time of the experience your mind has no other way of interpreting this being. He tells you that, like the Buddha, you will receive enlightenment, it will happen in a moment, and your eyes will be opened as if for the first time, you will see as things really are, as if you were seeing into another dimension that was always there but hidden in plain sight and hidden to most people. Things you highly regarded as human wisdom will appear as foolishness to you. You will know your purpose in life and your calling and be able to use this to great benefit to humanity if you chose. But you will also appear very foolish to many people who are unable to see what you see.
Then the angel leaves you, but the words “your eyes will be opened” resonates in your head, but everything else seems ‘normal’
How would you handle the above? In particular the message of what is to come? Would you dread it, try to ignore it and live your life as if it never happened, try to drink/drug it away, or look forward to the possibility, research Buddha? Seeking mental health assistance would probably partly explore the message itself, would you want to explore the message if you did chose to seek mental health help? How would you feel about the supernatural visit shortly after?
