The seduction of gifts and powers 

  
As one awakens, extra-sensory perceptions, gifts or powers may appear. 

If they appear, refuse them. They are the last stand of the ego, bargaining and bribing to maintain its existence.

The temptation to be a powerful yogi, a gifted seer, or a supernatural sage, is strong. But all reinforce a separate self. All satisfy the ego.

Do not be seduced. They are obstacles to awakening.
