Culadasa is not lying. He believes his narrative completely....and he always has. He is as confused as anyone about all this. This is the sad truth about mental illness.
To elaborate further would get into what I consider the danger of psychological based practice...mind training etc. A discussion for another time and place. No coincidence that Daniel practices magic and Culadasa is in his rabbit hole. Stop trying to change the brain by meditating like crazy. Google DMN and see how many different kinds of mental illness are related to changes in DMN. And what is one of the big proofs that advocates of intense meditation wave around....meditation has been shown to change the DMN...well dahhhh
