Maitri for all

Psychic powers — miraculous?

We’re all aware of autostereograms (like the one above) where with good focus and adjustments we are able to see the underlying pattern beneath it which otherwise is hidden from our naked eye. Similarly, by removing wrong views, and calming our mind by removing the layers of projections of world on us and of us, on this world, we can easily see new regularities emerging out of the chaotic reality, which are otherwise inaccessible to our eye.

Suppose someone who never tried looking at these autostereograms walks up to you and calls you looking at the hidden object as a “miraculous”. What is your response? Would you call it a miracle? Would you consider yourself to be paranormal? Similarly, if we catch hold of Buddha and ask him, how he could do the things he did, perform the “miracles” he performed, he will ask us back, as why we aren’t able do what he does naturally.
