Sounds like ya done went camping OP. Whoopty freakin doo.

Just kidding


This is a very serious element of my life. In addition to the connection you are building with your mind and soul, I am so happy to read about the connection you developed with nature. Being in touch with nature really plays a big role in the development of the mind/soul connection. It really helps to show how a lot of things in our society are very artificial...

I've been wanting to do that for years since reading Falun dafa, cant at present as I have my 17 year old daughter living with me and as she is still going to secondary school she needs my support.
But when the day comes that I dont have to financially support her, I am off into the bush to find out more about
my inner workings. Absolutely sick of the this rat race, working 5 days a week so someone else gets wealthy.
I have had business's and that is even harder and just as pointless.
There has got to be more to existence than being a slave to the system.

I genuinely believe in the Gaia theory as I spend time out in nature. I believe the Earth is a living entity. In the same manner as microscopic bugs race across our hair and body, and our hair and body is their "world," we race across the Earth, which is our world. We could be those microscopic bugs...

Even when I look at pictures of Earth, the water just looks like the flow of blood to me. Grass is like growing hair. I think the planet is a living cell within something bigger that I cannot yet understand. I think it is definitely related to a multiple universes.

Regardless of whether you agree with the Gaia Theory or not, getting back in touch with nature really just allows me clear vision into how commercial and artificial everything is. Not needed... Keep it simple- it's so simple to do. Fwiw- the Gaia Theory is actually an accepted scientific hypothesis. There is evidence such as ocean salinity remaining constant (when it should be rising) that shows balancing measures of the Earth. Some believe these balancing measures are like the way our bodies flow and "live."

If everything ever does eventually go to crud here in this world, the people who are connected to nature, mind, and soul will have no problems continuing to "be."

I enjoyed reading this man.. I think I have forgotten how far I have left the Flow..

Even just walking through the woods for a day or two can completely take away society to the point where deer can't tell you're a "human." Meditation helped this along as well. I was able to interact with 2 baby deer and a mom. Everything was so natural.. Everything was so connected.. And then as I was walking I came upon a strange sight.

What are those Big Boxes?

My mind had to focus in on the houses before they snapped into view. Whoa humans are scary.

I felt as a wild animal having to hide from the humans.. Their energy was so off kilter..


I came to realize what mind control actually was.. It's a normal reaction to any group or society.. Everything anyone does to control countries, continents, the world... It's all natural ego.. The fear of those different from you. The invalidation of others experience that you have not had yourself. The telling of others what is real and what is fake. This all serves to protect the ego, and to make the ego reflected in all others.. Those who can't get with this program are called "savage."

This whole life of mine I keep forgetting what it is I have been trying to escape. It's the Matrix Neo.. The thought matrix.. People don't know what I mean when I say everything is mind control. Colors are mind control. English is mind control. Culture is your operating system. If society wont upgrade to positivist liberty 2.0, I'll just have to break away at some point.

From Wiki


Civilization (or civilisation) is a sometimes controversial term that has been used in several related ways. Primarily, the term has been used to refer to the material and instrumental side of human cultures that are complex in terms of technology, science, and division of labor. Such civilizations are generally hierarchical and urbanized. In a classical context, people were called "civilized" to set them apart from barbarians, savages, and primitive peoples while in a modern-day context, "civilized peoples" have been contrasted with indigenous peoples or tribal societies.

Great post. I'd love to do what you did. Way too much craziness in modern life. Probably a contributor to the mental fatigue and dis-ease that we all suffer from (well most of us).

I was listening to Alan Watts talking about doing this. He said that after 30 days you stop thinking in words and just go with the flow of things. Thinking without words... (wonders what that is like)

May god hold you and may god hold me.

People can get into many dirty and superficial things when they involve in the society.

They even commit unseen group crimes.

Mind your spectacular mind frame and try to evolve it.

And beware that there are many surprises to discover. Those surprises may make you laugh or make you sad inside.

take care.

+ many prophets were shepherds because they spend many hours alone , thinking and caring about things that other people don't care.

ATS has some good points and people seem to see other things than UFO or end of times.

I will be glad to read more from you in future.

peace.

 


I am happy some people do some thinking about other things than themselves and their instincts.

It may be rare in American pop culture.

Jesus (pbuh) help you.

I wish I was a shepherd. I love being alone in my mind. I think my wife hates me for it.

Dominicus, I have only read your opening page as of now. I logged in just for you, I only log in very rarely anymore, because most of these topics are beat up and old, and just new spins on the same crap.

For you, you have done what few would, will, or could ever conceive. I have done it as well. Society is a sick joke, when the (Ego) is stripped from it, and it is viewed objectively. Jesus, Gandhi, Moses, Shamans etc. these people saw that there was a creator from shutting out their (world) and listening to the silence of their own company.

Well Done, I have many choice words for my "So Hip, Atheist friends," but alas they wouldnt even know how to unplug and find the Song of Existence, unless forced to. And even then, they would be "broken" not built-up from this experience.

Congrats, you went camping...

Now that my smart arse retort is out the way, all I have to say is.. Well done! I know exactly the feeling you felt coming back and I am glad you have experienced the lifting of the veil. Thanks for sharing

It is just words I type.

It is your own heart that may see it beautiful.

Write your thoughts in a notebook and you can see the changes. It is very delightful.

I have some strict borders with any one than myself.

I just let god into the place.

About your wife , see how she reacts to your ideas . She wants to help or not.

I don't have a wife and my idea is just some assumption.

You know that it is almost impossible to be shepherd.
. At least for me.

Well in terms of the mind, yea probably a mad man.

You remain in a place long enough, you find it home.

I have the same feelings you described within a city. Leave me on top of a sky scrapper roof for the same time and I'd probably feel the same.


It's called familiarization. It's nothing spiritual. It's just the realization of systems around you. You can add meaning, and just as you yourself called society artificial, researching into our "nature" preserves and pondering it atop a city can make the forest look artificial too, because it is. There are no old growths left anymore, no hundred year old trees, nothing natural to observe but the seedlings and controlled forests of man that were planted after we strip-cut most, if not all, of the forests of this continent.

And to go deeper, traveling to the even older forests of the world where there was no logging, no people, and no destruction, this viewpoint increases ever more. until all the world, both city and forest, looks artificial.

You have experienced what is like to be FREE!!

Well done..... now get back to work!!



Nature is what we all should closer to IMO.... but it is slowly being hacked away or dying a slow death.... if big Corps want to build on a piece of free land... they will do so no matter what....

Great post, thank you for sharing. During fasts, when the body nears a purified state, the mind is on such a high level that the subconscious mind becomes very active and sharp. One can experience the supernatural with ease. Being in, and connecting with nature during a fast is the way to go


You're confusing supernatural with hallucinations and delusion. When you starve your body what you experience has nothing to do with God as God doesn't use hallucination and delusion to come to you.

I guess you're not too familiar with the Good Friday experiment and what it means?

Mystics have been using fasts and entheogens as spiritual aids for a long, long, LONG time. One persons "hallucination" is another persons vision. All too often people use words like "hallucination" to smuggle thier philosophical assumptions and biases into the mix.

It's sort of true as above.

The idea of fasting, for example, is to weaken yourself in order to rely on God more.

Likewise, that's why it took 40 days to weaken Jesus so that Satan could talk to him.

Also do not forget. God is not above using Satan for his plans. Look at Job. Some passages even suggest Satan is or was a slave to God, making a deal to spare his own life...possibly for a time...and leaving the other angels that rebelled to rot.

Well said blondie, but when I went into the wilderness for 14 days I felt good to be away from the crazy cities and towns, but I didn't feel like hugging trees either, and there were plenty of trees around me.

I won't deny there's a magic and mystery to being in the wilderness, it's where most of us will thrive. Cities are not even European in origin but something that sprang up in ancient sumeria and babylon...

Here's my story:
