'___' has never been scientifically proven to be released from the brain at the time of death. It is only suspected.
I never said it was, I highly suspect it is though.
I believe our personal beliefs influence what we experience.
For sure, I agree with the jist of your post. The same is also true for everyday "reality" however. It is a hallucination created by the mind based on its beliefs and current chemical composition. But it feels so "real" and everybody says it is real so it must be real right?
IMO this type of deep meditation and psychedelic use is merely (probably not the right word) a tool to experience ourselves and experience our consciousness from a different perspective. There is nothing being taught to us from a "higher up" because there is no higher up than ourselves! We are teaching ourselves (much like in the film Waking Life if you have seen it) in ways the normal state of consciousness can't. There is no doubt what we experience is influenced by our beliefs and human inability to perceive what really IS, but this is no different to the everyday experiences we believe to be so real. The great thing about the brain being under psychedelics is that beliefs, preconceptions and paradigms are stripped down far more and much more easily than under normal consciousness. IMO this gets us closer to "god" and allows our thoughts to be much more honest, reasonable and true.
Also, who's to say what particular chemical composition of the brain is the "correct" one for experiencing true reality? IMO perceiving consciousness and the universe through a broad spectrum of perceptions, paradigms and states of consciousness etc will allow you to experience reality or learn what really is to a far greater truth than the narrow spectrum that everyday consciousness allows.

Well,.... the Gray area is a step up. It was first moved to cryptozoology. I'm happy to read you enjoyed the thread.

If Heaven was within yourself and you are within the universe and you are GOD, how is it you are unable to get there or find it? Do you really believe this? Also if all this was true we would have to live the life of of all including Jesus... why is it that population lvls are increasing should we not have on earth at all times an equal amount of souls then? Imagine the timeframe required to live as all things... Why did Christ die for our sins if all we have to do is wait our turn to incarnate as him? And say your second in line could 1 billion years be an exceptable timeframe for the long wait in the queue? Id hate to be 3rd in line let alone last...
a clear example of how "a Kingdom divided upon itself cannot stand"...

There was a girl beside me for much of the time I spent waiting there. She was my Yeshe, my beloved, whom I was to share this ongoing transformation with. My eyes swell with tears-to-be, and my heart swells with a love that can never end... even now, reliving it as I relate it here. I hope to be with her again soon, with every ounce of hope and love...
And to my Yeshe, should this reach you, please know I never left you, and may our reunion be made swift and blessed by all that love and live in light. May my love shield and warm you in these bitterly cold times, may it speed your steps and light the path back home into my heart.
