Just for a split second, it ALL makes sense but then 'the answer' is gone...

I tend not to post here as much as I used to, although I do continue to read many 'conspiracy' related books on my quest for more understanding- why are we here, what are our origins, what's really going on and I often find myself postulating many theories and pondering many questions trying to make sense of it all...

- People say 'The world's a stage', well maybe the entire physical universe is a stage, a grand, grand stage where we experience physical existence...but why, what is beyond- are we here to learn or evolve?

- Are the entities behind the NWO part of God's overall plan, are they a necessary evil required for humanity to learn? But how can I confim this idea? What is God?

- There's so much to consider, so much going on it is impossible to make sense of our existence, other than that it 'feels right' to be good to each other, to try and understand the divisions that are used against us, yet understanding this seems irrelevant because the world continues to collectively 'play the game' set out for us- divided on religion, race, mankind marches towards more wars and misery, which then leads me back to thinking the evil is part of the 'greater plan'....'evil' sure has one hell of a hold on this world right now anyway. There has to be a reason for it, right?...

...Then, as it continues to confuse me, the answer to EVERYTHING is there, for a split second, perhaps nowhere even a second, IT ALL MAKES SENSE, I can't really consciously explain what happens other than for such a brief moment in time, I understand what it is all about. Then it is gone, and that glimpse into the true nature of our existence is forgotten. I'm sorry, I don't really have the ability to explain it other than that.

It reminds me slightly when I think about individual words. Take any word and if you think about it long enough, suddenly it all seems so strange, almost as though something isn't right and the whole thing is some kind of weird illusion.

What's amazing is that I can induce this feeling. After around 5 minutes of relaxing and letting my mind wander (that seems a fitting word to describe it) it comes to me, but only ever lasts for incredibly brief periods of time.

Anyway, I felt compelled to write this thread for whatever reason I'm not sure, so there it is
Anyone relate?

And I thought it was just me

I have had exactly the same experience for many, many years.

Anyone who knows me here will know that I am a very sceptical person, but one thing I have always had an inkling might hold some merit is reincarnation, and I've often wondered whether these feelings may in some way be related to that particular phenomenon.

S&F from me.

Oh yeah! The really fun ones are the ones where you think 'I could die right now and it'd be fine'... some sort of instantaneous reverie out of nowhere combined with awe, delight and contentment.

As far as reincarnation goes, I have proof of both that and (from a different experience) life after death, although I presume they're kinda interrelated. I wish I could prove them both to people but they work for me. Now I solve slightly simpler questions....

yes 2012 thats rather well phrased

- its like a person being deep underwater
trying to make his way to the watersurface

..the analogy s not quite correct - it d need to be "several layers of water"
or perhaps even "several types of fluids"

and every higher level of water provides different perceptions
different - larger - context

..problem is only....that the persons breath is running out, the higher he swims up

untill he can see the sun shining into the last layer, the surface
- then the sunlight dissapears again
then comes back a moment
.. i assume that is the point you are describing

so - hów to can get óut of the water ?

I would like to share my perspective on the world issues as a whole and see how others feel about it, I feel that all actions have consequences of equal magnitude, often times I think that the consequences of those actions neutralizes the action itself. For instance to create a positive potential I most make a negative potential, the negative potential when shorted to the positive will equalize back to zero, this is the basic example of electricity and it would appear many things follow this basis.

So to summarize my point, I think as much as the greedy and selfish and manipulative try to maintain their ambitions while growing their wealth and material, the opposite polarity equals it in magnitude, in other words people pushing for greater equality, diffusion of power and wealth, and so on. When the magnitude of difference exceeds the ability to maintain the difference there will be a arc or action that will neutralize the disparity.

I believe, in my humble perspective, we are very close to the great equalizing of extremes, and whatever this event is will haunt us for a long time to come, and remind us that the best path is the middle road.

I also feel this principle pertains to the environment and our impact on it, and an event will also equalize or relationship with nature as well.

Yes, I can relate.

Sometimes, I'll be off in my head and it is like I'm being schooled and I think WOW, I need to tell others of this, and then it's gone. I'll sit and try to reformulate the thought or idea, but it's as if, as soon as I think to grasp it and remember it, it slips away to an irretrievable place in my consciousness.

I often wonder was that an external force taking back something I've no business sharing. Is it my higher consciousness spelling it out and when I try to drag it back to lower consciousness - it doesn't compute? Is it a link to something I can't contemplate or reformulate outside my daydream?. I don't know, but I can relate.

This phenomenon happened to me today...I was staring wistfully out of the window, reflecting on several very important family concerns...The answers popped in my head with such clarity and certainty, it startled me. I actually thought for a flash, " Damn..I need to write this down!".

Now, hours later, I can barely remember what I was thinking about.

I feel trolled.

My friend, I ask myself these questions everyday and the quest for the truth is what drives my very existence.
I personally believe many of these answers can be found inside ourselves however.

Sometimes, I feel like there's not a single book or secret society in the world that could produce the answers that we can find from just looking deep within our own heart and soul.

Stay true to yourself and others, and continue on the quest for knowledge...that's my game plan anyway, and I have gained much insight so far.

As far as pulling back the "veil" on reality goes, I have had this notion a few times in my life...I'm not sure if it's the lack of knowledge or the fear of knowing how it all works that pulls me back to reality.

I'm also a big reader and have an ever growing library on many subjects, if you feel discussing and sharing some titles just send me a PM.

This video may summarize what many of you are referring to. You have a moment of total consciousness and its hard to hold on to that. Totally understand.

Its all about shifting your consciousness to a place where normal mental functioning can not exist or is dramatically reduced. Our everyday minds are like little prisons, where we are trapped by our own incessant thinking. Get out of your head as much as possible if you want to get clarity and a real sense of who and what you are in this spacetime moment - meditation, chanting, fasting, sweat lodge, entheogens, float tanks, spinning, sleep deprivation, scrying, ganzfelds, binaural beats, holotropic breathwork, extended solitude, vipassana, trance dance, soul gazing, lucid dreaming, tantra, autourine therapy - any of these practices will help you to do that.

Enjoy the ride !

Those are great moments.

Keep them in mind when back under water!

Imagine if our culture was setup such that most people died with that feeling.

I know coming to that point multiple times (only 36) has been intensely liberating and in fact *increased* the sense of joy at continuing to live. Because it was no longer a mandatory thing, but something that I get to do.

Still get sucked down to the bottom of course, but then... it's the most potent vantage from which to experience the surface again!

Had the SAME exact experience, but whether this "thing" we felt is the real deal or if it's just another process that goes on in our brain I can't really say...
I guess, in the end, it IS a matter of having faith, for everything.

The title of your OP had me thinking of this quote. Yes, I have struggled with that sort of thing in the moments before waking since I was a child. Not sure if it is relevant, but I felt compelled to post it...

"There are mysterious troglodytic wreckers hobbling and hopping about in the gloom at the very base of the universe; for millennia, they have been searching for the one golden bolt that holds the whole surprising contraption together; Truck knew its whereabouts to the inch just before he woke up to all the vast sordid horror of a rubber restraining garment, in West Central Detention, Carter's Snort.

'I'll tell you!' he yelled, trying to thrash about. But they had all left by a back door in his head.

It's something that has happened to me quite a few times this year, and they are kind of bittersweet moments for me. They are moments of pure understanding and sympathy for all things and people, even for what we define as the most 'evil' of people sometimes.
An understanding that we are all really the same, different facets of the same object so to speak. That's just what stays with me after these epiphanies. There is so much more that, like you say, just vanishes after a second or two.
And it's bittersweet because it makes me want to shout it to the world, "wake up people!", if only I knew or remembered what the whole message was...

Since I found out that video and others of him talking about this subject, he really went up in my consideration. Great guy. If only more famous people would 'come out' like this...

i can relate totally.
i have been having small moments of realisation for years. They have completely changed the way I interact with people. As the years have gone by the realisations get a little more complex and a lot deeper.
Many of the realisations are about myself, and how they relate to others, because I think we understand others by understanding ourselves. Ourselves(our consciousness and sum of our experience), are our only real true points of reference.
Its just an inner desire to make sense out of nonsense, to explain the unexplained and to overall just understand. To find a worthy purpose.

Star and flag for an amazing thread topic. I'm sure many feel this way but don't know how to describe it to others. I most certainly have (see my avatar). I honestly questioned my own sanity at times,or thought early alzheimers at the fact of having moments of such clarity that just vanish at the least distraction from "reality". It's comforting to know others share the experience.

posted on Sep, 28 2013 @ 05:38 PM
This moment of clarity is very much relatable to epiphanies that can occur under the influence of psychedelics. For one moment your consciousness can expand to understand the mysteries of the universe. During that time you are like "I understand everything, it's so simple! I'll never forget this, I'm a changed man from here on" And then 2 mins later its like a faint memory that can barely be interpreted by your current mindset. Its so infuriating, and yet so fantastic to know my spirit has the potential to understand everything in this body, in this time, even if its only a brief experience.

Sometimes I think that there are multiple ways of understanding everything and all can be correct. If a tree falls down in a forest and two observers both come to different conclusions of why the tree fell down; then the tree that falls has two different meanings at the same time, both can be correct.
