"Many people put up the figures of Buddha and Jesus Christ inside the house for the purpose of worshipping. Many people cling tightly to scriptures. They do so because they are still constrained by heart form and dharma form. It is for this very reason that Buddha tells us to chuck away the rafts after we are ferried across the river. And this is also why Jesus Christ tells those people who always have Lord on their lips, "I don't know you".

Lifechanyuan believes that a person who seriously seeks to attain Buddhahood should build a stupa in his mind and that although the exterior stupa is important, the interior stupa is even more important. Buddha tells us, "all forms are seen as unreal". Therefore, the stupa that has a form is illusive, and the real stupa is formless stupa. We should build stupa in our mind, we shall help those pious Buddhist believers to build stupas in their minds instead of wasting a lot of manpower and money on the building of resplendent and magnificent exterior stupas. The exterior stupas are forms, only the stupas in mind are formless, and only formless stupas are the real stupas."

I think it was acid trips in the 70s that first made me question the reality of form.  The little flecks in formica would flow in rivers, the holes in accoustic tile would get bigger and bigger until they were the size of basketballs. And with the Sun shining behind them, I could see the flow through the veins of the leaves, etc, etc.

I never had a bad trip, although I talked others down from one even when I was high.  And I never thought I could fly and jumped off a building, or anything like that.  People who are psychotic should not take drugs, unless prescribed, because they are predisposed to do crazy things.  Otherwise, for normal people, acid and other hallucinogens can raise a number of interesting questions.  Like, *Just how real is this world anyway?*

Even if we could see the energy behind the forms we take for granted, and that would be a step in the right direction, we would still have a ways to go to get to what you refer to as *formless stupa*. 

The only *formless stupa* that I know is the Spirit itself, formless awareness, out of which, and within which, everything else is created.
