"As the Bardo Thodol [sic] text makes very clear by repeated
assertions, none of all these deities or spiritual beings has any
real individual existence any more than have human beings. "It is
quite sufficient for thee (i.e., the deceased percipient) to know
that these apparitions are (the reflections of) thine own thought-
forms." They are merely the consciousness- content visualized, by
karmic agency, as apparitional appearances in the Intermediate state -
- airy nothings woven into dreams."
--Tibetan Book of the Dead [2]--


"Now, you see no Jesus Christ comes from without in anybody's
visions. No Rama, no Krishna, no Buddha, and no Baba Faqir comes from
without to anybody. The visions are only because of the impressions
and suggestions that a disciple has already accepted in his mind.
These impressions and suggestions appear to him like a dream. No body
comes from without. This is the plain truth."
--Baba Faqir Chand [3]--

Lifted from a Dave Lane essay.
