Hi fellow ATSers
I recently experienced an Ego Death via natural means and some interesting thoughts occurred. First I'll define Ego Death:
Ego death is the experience of transcending the ego, self or identity. This experience is the most mind-bending, awakening, awe-inspiring, peaceful
and unconditionally loving experience you could ever have. It is the temporary removal of all your preconceived biases and thought patterns. It is a
feeling of being one with The Universe
During this experience I had the following thoughts occur in my mind:
"The Holocaust was an affront to humankind not just Jews or the disabled"
This lead me to realise that we are all the Human race. Assigning all these special labels of gay, cis gendered, Republican, Democrat, Black, White,
Asian, Russian, Saudi, American, Atheist, Islamist, Jew, transgendered... all divide us. We're so concerned with highlighting our differences that
we forget our commonality. We forget that we are all human and we all have the same basic wants and needs. Now this is not suggesting that these
labels don't exist in a descriptive form; we are too focussed on them and give our differences too much weight. I believe that TPTB want us focussed
on taking sides in an us and them mentality to divide us. The news plays a part in this with the constant stream of horrific stories about war and
This experience was like 10 years of therapy at once. I've never felt so much love and contentment. I used to be depressed, worried and full of self
doubt. I now feel happy and content with the world, I know that I am enough. All my previous prejudices are gone and I'm more open to new
experiences. It makes me wonder what the world would be like if we could all share in this experience.
Have you experienced Ego Death?
