There is nothing wrong with expanded states; they just aren’t the whole truth. The whole truth is that Awareness also has the capacity for narrowing attention. You can’t leave that out because suddenly you’ll have to go to the bathroom, which is bound to narrow your attention. Then, what happened to the expanded state?

peace isn’t a thing but a quality. Emptiness is the absence of things, yet it has quality and presence.
