I guess the Buddha would not have given such addvices, remembering the countless we might have met, claiming to have seen a special task for them selfs. We percept, dream and see much, therefore I guess it is useful to focus just on reaching for example "knowledge of equanimity about formations" which is quite a lot to do, and I am sure even on 5% of the way to this stage, one would not give such speculations even a single time a chance. They (toughts about it) even would not let one start to strive for such a state.
Just that! *smile*


BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_

I find it is a bit funny that now, under the current Buddha sasana, people started worshiping future Buddha. Then maybe in future, under the Maitreya's teaching then they will worship another future Buddha. They try to catch the train but miss it every time it arrives :mrgreen:
