It's my experience too. BUT, even though K feels "stronger" initially,
it's also more confusing, scary, etc., which works against realization.
And I think it's wrong against those who are being tormented on the early
stages to push forward a demand for some sort of realization. If one gets
it right in the beginning, good, if one doesn't, no harm done.

The point was not that there would be something wrong with people who see
these visions. I was thinking of clinging to the visions and "tripping".
It seems you agree with me, or so I read from the text found in the top of
this message (reference to "lint"). I guess I'm a bit biased towards Zen.
