If one succeeds in ridding the ego, the animal mind, then how does one deal with extremely and acutely threatening situations?
Say for instance, you are being mugged late at night and the gravity of the robbery is that serious that the mugger is totally psychopathic and is out to kill you. There’s no room or time to reason. The clock is ticking. How do you deal with this? How do you defend yourself? Or do you?
What about a situation in which your child is being victimized of molestation or rape. You’re entering the place of derelict and witness what is going on. The molester acts like a complete psychopath but you have killed your ego. Again, there’s no room or time to reason with the perpetrator. Do you go save your child and neutralize the assailant? If so, how?
So how does a fully developed human being deal successfully with extremely threatening situations if its natural animal mind has quieted?
