Daniel says:

Leo, you say over many videos to be spiritually enlighten you need to be off all addiction. I’m sure you’ve answered my question somewhere, but would DMT destroy your chance of enlightenment? I’m not saying you’re addicted to DMT but could it compromise?

Leo Gura says:

No, I’ve never said that you need to be off all addictions to be enlightened. Be careful with leaping to such conclusions. I’ve merely said that eliminating your addictions is useful and beneficial.

You can be enlightened and simultaneously addicted to heroin.

I haven’t used 5-MeO-DMT in over a year.

Robert says:

Enlightenment during DMT or other pshychedelics?

Alan Travers says:

Leo, interesting video but the problem is you announced it as you becoming enlightened rather than saying i’m having an enlightenment experience on psychedelics. I respect your vids but as a teacher you will lose respect for this.

Now you have to explain it in the next vid in which you hit out on people who don’t ‘understand’ enlightenment. Your ego is right back at play, making this video completely inauthentic. Plus your ego is on show in this video.

I have followed you for a long time and will continue to but these videos reveal an obsession within you that I can only see blocking you from true enlightenment. I hope not.

Yann says:

Extremely valuable testimony.
However, we were not born enlightened probably for a reason. So enlightenment must be considered as an exit door.

Yann says:

Leo, who’s making the egotistic decisions ?
Not us, because you said we don’t have control whatsoever.
So it must be the oneness then.
So these egotistic decisions must have a raison d’etre after all.
Why dismissing them then ?
Aren’t they part of the game ?

Leo Gura says:

Exactly. Even your ego isn’t yours.

Yann says:

thanks. important answer.
So it’s infinity slumming in finitude

Leo Gura says:

God plays every role, including the devil’s.

Leo you didnt forget to pay your taxes did u? Har har

Off with your head.

Roger says:

Nothing to add (duh), so: virtual hug

Abree says:

Thank you for sharing this experience

sylvia says:

i r u, and u r me, and we r infinity
pretending not to be
i know u – the love/ truth streaming through you in this video is so palpable.
thank u for filming this.

Lisa says:

I like that you took the risk to bare it all in this video. What does it really matter what You tube thinks or anyone anyways! It’s really your journey into your own enlightenment. Bravo.

Listening to this confirms to me my thoughts and the beliefs that ring true to me. Thanks for confirming that we are not in control of the universe like we think we are.

I agree with the commentary of how people have to be fake. This is so true and honest. Everyone is fake. No one is allowed to live in this society and get along by being truly authentic, you just wouldn’t be able to survive the backlash…no one would.

Leo, how can we live an authentic life then? Seems like we have to continue to act out the play?? Unless I go an buy a cabin in the woods (which I very much like the idea and would be happy to do so)…..how can we truly be authentic in our daily lives?

Philip Thomas Howell says:

first trip? watch out for mirrors. reflecting about yourself, while defining self in your reflection, you’ll never escape the mirrored mind inside your mind. YAY DRUGS!

Picture your ‘self’ as a glass of water. The universe an infinite pool of water. Poor yourself into the infinite. You are still your own glass of water, part of and separate, with and without, the infinite.
-remember it is a public pool, kids and all

Ashray says:

That what we are can not help but be authentic to itself.

But it’s good at tricking itself (laughter)

Sounds like god. There she goes playing 2 opposite roles at the same time and then experience it with and without ego.

Thankyou leo. I have been chipping away at my beliefs bit by bit and your experience brought awareness to many of the pains in my body that were hidden.

I have been in this game quite a while now and i am truly loving it. Starting to feels like i already need all that i require, but i wont let myself overcome this just yet. Just to enjoy the drama.

I don’t truly understand all of it, though. You mean I am you, as you are me? i am also that pile of trash near a gutter and the amazon forest? But then there is no space at all.

Marta says:

I have only found your videos a couple of months ago on YouTube. Started watching personal development ones regularly and found them inspirational yet practical.

I just want to say this video has upset me. I don’t know why. It was just a raw feeling of disappointment. Just made me think this is not the way. I’m gonna continue with watching your personal development videos and really thanks for them.

Marlo says:

Leo, I love what you are doing. But I think we can connect with the universe (all that truly is) without substance use (though I have used many in my 49 years ,that has never been when I truly connected). You don’t need this to be there.

Alessio Valentino says:

What are you on?

First time on this site but have watched a number of Leo’s videos & love his direct no BS views on Reality, Truth & more..

I find it interesting there are a number of comments raising concerns about psychedelics.. I’ve been a seeker of the “meaning of life” for many years, delved into most religions, philosophies, meditations, science, atheism etc, then out of the blue a gentle & beautiful soulful person introduced me to the Peruvian Shamanic ceremony of Ayahuasca and my first experience totally blew my mind.. It was the single most Amazing & Important experience I have EVER had in my entire 59yrs of life! And I’ve had a good life with many global experiences..

One must enter this ceremony with a healthy body & mind, no medications, drugs, no alcohol, vegan/vegetarian, celibate (this is recommended 2 wks pre-ceremony) it’s important to treat & take the Ayahuasca “plant medicine” or any other psychedelic with the utmost respect.. you are going to meet/experience God & all the wonders of the universe & the answers. Not everyone taking psychedelics will experience this “awakening” particularly if taking it with a flippant attitude, poor intension, or unclean body.. you need your body prepared to be a “vessel” so the universal energy can flow in & through easily.

The main message.. to Seekers.. if you want the Truth And to meet God and get a glimpse of what It’s all about.. I agree with Leo,.. try a psychedelic experience at least Once in your lifetime .. particularly “before” you start commenting online as an inexperienced mortal, raising concerns, denying, naysaying.

Please research what neuroscientists & others from the medical world have found out about psychedelics NB: it’s All positive … psychedelics are Not like drugs of addiction, they light up & turn your brain “ON” & help create new neural pathways (shown under MRI) you actually DO have Visions (of another dimension) NOT hallucinations/dreams like when we sleep.

It is Very difficult to put into words the psychedelic awakening experience and to alleviate concerns raised by those who have never tried it. But psychedelics are VERY safe, non addictive, research it before you judge.

All the very best wishes, and may your journey lead you to the Truth. xx
