(By the way I am talking about two separate trials I have faced on the way, not one-- the first a sense of bring crushed or unimaginably compressed, and the other a rather jolting encounter in meditation. I should have used a comma). Zen skips the intermediate stages, and maybe other paths of Buddhism are better suited for some people. I might also add these harrowing experiences were both transitory. Sorry to take up so much space...I just wanted to avoid confusion about what I intended to say.

Perhaps there should be a warning label on Zen. Then again explaining that one must eventually cultivate the power to pass through unbelievably cramped spaces or risk meeting up with some embodied terror conjured by karma in some spooky place...well I suppose donations would drop off and book sales dwindle.
