Thats quite a high, what do you do to get there... speak in tongues, drum, sit in a sweat lodge, fast, meditate, chant... a combination of all of
these? Please do tell... or are you selling something along the lines of a book, workshop or dvd?
Yeah its a combination of all those. Honestly, all my experiences came from Xtianity and being baptized, then being led to lots of meditation, then
being led to gnosticism/self inquiry/Taoism.
SO label wise, lol, you can say I'm a Christian Mystic Gnostic Taoist self Inquiring meditator.
Forgot to add. I'm not selling anything. I just put it out there, and those who are ready ask about it. I point my finger to where it all is, the
rest is up to the individual
Lots and lots of meditation, at least and hour a day and some days 3 x 1 hour a day. That and nonduality, Advaita, Vasistha, it all helped to put what
Jesus said in perspective.
The thought of a rock is not an actual real rock. The thought of who you are, is not the actual real you. The mind thinks its you, but its not. Once
you become aware of this, you start to untangle the deceitful webs of deception the mind has spun since puberty. he mind is a tool to be used by
awareness. But the Mind has hijacked your real identity and "it" thinks that it is you. All your likes/dislikes, opinions, personality, prejudices,
all of that is a mask and not the real you.
It all takes you back to being like a child. No labeling of things, no judging, no opinions. Just peace, love, the now, infinity, God, oneness,
transcendence, no worries, no anxieties.
Baptism was HUGE for me also. I got the proverbial Holy Spirit as traditional Xtians say and it give me ego death, and also showed me that those
Xtians condemning others, judging, criticizing ...that they all lack spiritual enlightenment. When I got my enlightenment I started questioning my
teacher(s), preacher(s), Bible, etc.
I then found out how Xtainity got hijacked by something called the Great Schism of 1054. Jesus was more of a Taoist enlightened master himself. He
speaks about Oneness and nonduality but its very cryptic and very few will "get it"
Experiencing God is basically that there no longer is a you to experience a God, if that makes sense. All labels, concepts, ideas, all falls away
leaving only the Omnipresence of God. Plus God is love so imagine experiencing everything being Love while your on a million ecstacy pills. Allot of
times its too much to handle so you drop out of it and return to a self implied ego/mask/cloak just to go back into the world and interact.
Then when I go home, I take off the mask/cloak and melt into infinity.
Last time I took any substances it was right after getting enlightenment. It was mushrooms, and they had zero effect on me, all they did was cloud/fog
up the brilliance and awesomeness of spiritual enlightenment. Everyone else was in a shroom zone and I was the only one it had no effect on.
Same thing happened to the Beatles when they were huge into acid. They used to hang out in India with an enlightened guru. They gave him some acid
when they were all tripping. They asked him what he thinks about the acid trip and he basically said paraphrased; "Its ok, but its nothing like
