  1. Very bizarre and interesting animation style, I liked it. I'll check some of his other stuff out. Thanks for sharing! Edit: Oh he's the creator of salad fingers. That's a classic.
  2. Is it necessary to have a spiritual teacher for the clearing of your awakening, or should it be enough doing work yourself with help from guru's/teachers on the internet?
  3. Great question. It's like the zen koan "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Cant answer it though.. So bump
  4. Be careful about seeking the experience you had. The ego can very quickly take credit for the experience and make it into another search. This was an actuality for me when I broke through to God. My ego conceptualized my experience and I believed it, then went on searching for about 6 months to get the experience back, until I realized a truth that was inherent in the mystical experience itself: That this right now is it. This is the experience you're supposed to be having right now, always. God is always with you, even when it seems that you lost him. I'm not saying that will happen to you, but I have heard it is a pretty common thing. Just a heads up. And thank You for your post, beautiful insights.
  5. You talked about this stuff in elementary school?
  6. One of those animals might end up looking pretty thicc after a couple hundred of years of banging your perfect 10 girl.
  7. Funny. I had this thing with my friends, when we used to smoke weed, where we gave cars names depending on what we sensed from their "personality." Never thought about it until now, but it was always a very fun time. So are you having conversations with inanimate objects on the daily? You might not wanna tell anybody about that, besides this forum and your friends that are into this kind of stuff, lol. They may get a bit concerned
  8. It is possible to get deep insights and knowledge about our true nature. The way to understand is to dissolve totally into your infinite being. In that state the knowledge is there for you, but for you only. There is no way to take infinite understanding into the finite mind. This is one of the main insights I had when I dissolved into myself.
  9. I had a full body massage yesterday with the intention of healing some energy blockages. It was wonderful, but halfway through I felt the blood starting to rush into my lil king down there, as she was touching some very sensitive areas. What I was unaware of was that a full body massage also includes the front. She asked me to lay on my back and I naturally got very aware of my wood down there, and that there was absolutely no way that she wouldn't notice. Throughout the rest of the session I could not think about anything else than getting rid of my wood, I tried all of the methods I've been using during self Inquiry "Who is the one having a boner," and " "surrender into the experience" etc. And all of this was of course resistance. It didn't go away throughout the rest of the session. Might not be an enlightenment joke, but it surely was an embarrassing/funny twist that initially was supposed to be something "spiritual."
  10. Seeing ego's from the perspective of God is a very amusing thing. It surely is paradise when you find out that it is all you.
  11. I'm looking for books that can help me orient myself a little in this disorienting place that I am at this current moment. I've read adyashanti's "the end of your world," and I'm interested in similar books. Thanks.
  12. No I have not. But I've heard of it and I am considering buying it. Have you read it? I can see that there is different interpretations of the book. Could you recommend one?
  13. Hahah that interesting imagery. I don't particularly have an answer for this. Many spiritual teachers would say that we never encounter anything called matter, only the experience of it. Rupert Spira talks about this subject.
  14. This is actually a question that has bothered me a lot too. The ego is commonly described as resistance to what is. For objects to appear there has to be a subject. A knower and a known. The infinite has to divide itself to know an outside world that is separate from itself. In the absolute view there is no subject nor object, and that in my understanding means that there is no ego or world. My ego has had a hard time with this, as this would literally mean death to it. Questions like "how do I keep functioning in this world if I'm not there or aware of it anymore?" Appear alot. This is just the ego trying to grasp something that is way beyond it though. If there is total unity, there is no world, which would suggest that the world indeed is only a dream of the mind.
  15. Every theory about what happens after death, are just that, theories. What happens after death is only a concern for the ego. Because of the impermanence of all experience this is the biggest question. If you identify with the impermanence, you'll grasp after concepts that will put an end to this question. From the enlightened point of view there is no such thing as death, it's just another concept of the mind. That is my take on it at least. It isn't a very satisfying answer though, I would imagine.
  16. The word enlightenment is not real. That which the word points to is the only real thing that exists, and of course it is not a thing. You start of seeking enlightenment because of the idea that it is the thing that will finally fulfill you. When it shows up in a glimpse it will show you that it has nothing to do with you, the one that you think that you are. The one that you think that you are will slowly dissolve, and reality will slowly become more and more evident.
  17. So whenever I awaken to the divine nature of my being, I tend to puke a lot. It seems to be a side effect of the infinite amount of energy you realize that you are. It seems like the body needs a lot of work to adjust to the divine energy. What is your experience?
  18. Do you sometimes get drawn into the dream of your life again, and realise that there is literally nothing you can do to experience life in that way anymore? I'm occasionally getting these depressed and hopeless episodes, where my mind takes over my realisation and sheds light on all of the things that realisation has shattered. I've lost almost all of my friends, which I think is because we have totally different views on life now. I'm pretty isolated when I get home from work, there's really not much that interest me anymore. My ego has no hope or direction at all anymore, I still seek simple quick pleasures just like before, but now they don't seem to satisfy me. This is just the mindset I can get pulled into, but 1 hours later or 1 sec later I can have a realisation (come into presence) and then there is no problem at all. It's just like, is this what life is supposed to be? Just doing the same stuff day in and day out, even for what you call a dream or illusion? New topic: Another thing is that I'm pretty sure that there are people in power that are contaminating the human consciousness and overall energy system. This seems unimportant to many of you as you just dismiss it as "it's happening in the dream, there is no problem." I agree. BUT, I infinite consciousness am still experiencing different human bodies and perspectives, and some of them (maybe not human) are controlling/manipulating the rest of the human consciousness to be on a level of misery and hopelessness. In my opinion a part of awakening should be awakening on the relative level also, so there is awareness of what is happening in the collective human consciousness and on the physical plane. if you rest in awareness and observe the human interactions and behaviours you can easily notice the insanity. If you research 5G, chemtrails, and so much more there is definetely something sketchy going on, that most people don't even have the awareness to see, they are blinded by their conditioning. I have had sinus problems for over 2 years now, and It has a pretty bad effect on pretty much every single part of my life and also my spiritual growth. 31 million adults are diagnosed with chronic sinusitis in the U.S alone. I'm not saying there is a conspiracy behind this, but there sure could be. Just realise how beautiful this is for the pharma companies and the overall control of the consciousness of millions. This is one example out of thousands. This is two totally different topics in one post, but the second topic isn't usually accepted on this forum, altough I don't know why. So I'm putting it on this post instead, if someone is interested in talking about this.
  19. These are not leo's words or leo's teachings, the teaching does not belong to anyone and everyone is able to access what Conrad is talking about. I myself have had similar awakenings on weed. What work is there to be done? you're already it, you can discover this right now.
  20. I've been watching some of the more "modern" (i don't know what to call them) spiritual channels on youtube lately. Their messages are reassuring and gives a kind of feel good hopeful feeling. But I'm unsure if what they preach is really something they know and if it is true, or if it's just coming from another belief system. Some of the things they say is not what is normally expressed in non duality. For an example in this video: He talks about the ego and the avatar, the illusory 3D world most human being are living in. This is kinda close to the non dual way of seeing, but then he says that "we" are eternal spiritual "beings" who forgot who we are. This is an occuring pattern of expression in many of these kind of videos, not only his. I'm wondering if there could be some truth to this or if it's just another beautiful story. Could we be eternal spiritual "beingS" and still be coming from the same source? Like god divided into innumerable eternal individual beings? There is also a lot of talk about aliens being in our mist for the last many hundred years, looking over us and planning to take over our world. The theory (fact in some eyes) is that we are heavely mentally manipulated to be in a state of confusion and chaos, so these E.T's can take over our world without us even noticing. There is obviously something sketchy going on. Chemtrails, addiction to technology and social media, shitty food, corrupt politics and news and the list goes on. A lot of things that gets the collective consciousness in a low vibration. There are people preaching and reaching out to wake up humanity from this sleep and we can notice the intervention taking place. People like Marshall Summers and David icke. I believe there is truth to some this. But again these people are talking about an individual responsibility and purpose, and are not really talking about the same kind of freedom that typical non dualists are talking about. Some of the things Marshall Summers has written in his books are really new, and kiiiind of contradictory to the non dual approach. for an example: he talks about a big community of races competing in our local universe, and freedom is rare as if it's something you have to fight others to get. A lot of seperation talk basically. Share your thoughts on this, I am interested.
  21. Is that your day to day experience? This is it you might say, this experience right here right now is it. That is true. The dream is very real while your in it, and it has infinitely more to it than what is seen. What if your purpose in this body , as a human form isn't just to gain total liberation and ascend all problems in the world? It likely is the highest purpose, but that still doesn't mean that you ignore problems because you are above them. The normal human consciousness is (likely) manipulated by beings outside of our current state of being, by more evolved species that are also driven by their ego, but are much more advanced. If you do some research there are pretty strong proof of this. This is not seen as a problem from the highest place of being, but relatively if this was the case it would have very negative consequences for the collective consciousness of the human race. I think we are too quick to make conclusions about reality based on a couple of experiences.
  22. This would indicate that the large amount of people on this forum and seekers in general as lost as the ones who are "not" seeking. A bunch of ego's chasing happiness, just like everyone else. Distracting themselves of the reality right in front of them, grasping onto new, more spiritual beliefs. I've been there myself and I got absolutely nowhere. Disconnecting myself even more than I was before from people. It was only when I distanced myself a bit from this new believe system that I felt somewhat connected again, and had a another big epiphany/awakening. We are all watching this charade from our own little ego bubble, unaware of how disconnected we are . I was at work outside and the trance lifted it's veil. I looked up and saw a chemtrail, and I had this feeling/sixth sense that the normal human consciousness is being manipulated by very advanced means to be in a state of disconnectedness and uncertainty.
  23. You are still experiencing a human, even if you wake up from the dream. As many non dual teachers say "it's a never ending process, even after you wake up." This means, we can all be coming from the same source, but the relative state is real as long as you experience it and therefore it shouldn't be looked at as something unimportant. Many people are seeking enlightenment, (the ego is seeking it) and it's often coming from a very selfish place.How can you know that this seeking in itself isn't a form of mental manipulation to make you so focused on the path that you ignore everything that is going on in the world?
