     Nothing to be afraid of.  Actually blindness is self chosen,
and upon recognition and re operation of such, vanishes.  I am told.
People go through the 'qualms' when they are about to get their
divine vision back.  It usually stops them from completing the job.

     The problem is only doing it too fast.  It has been said
that if an unprepared man were to look upon the beauty of the
Monadic plane of consciousness he would die of shame.

     Thus a certain gradient scale of opening eyes is called for.

To repeat the planes of consciousness from the particular theory
in question, they are,

Physical, Astral, Mental, Causal, Budhic, Nirvanic, Monadic, Divine.
