  1. 100%, LSD was my first real glimpse into source and it hit me so hard that a year n a half later I'm still integrating.
  2. Ketamine gave me a similar "experience". Upon exiting the "being" space/void the universe/form becomes nothing more than pure mind. Crazy stuff. Meditation is currently getting me back to that, like the door has been opened to it now. Good stuff dude.
  3. I think a lotta people have trouble separating the absolute from the relative for practical reasons. Relatively speaking solipsism is untrue, but in absolute terms you could sorta argue it to be true although I usually see solipsism as a ego based "everything in my little brain is all I know to be true" vs non-dual terms where there is nobody to experience anything at all; it's truly a void as loving and infinite as that void may be, but it's an incredibly peaceful one that definitely improves perspective. God itself is however not a perspective at all, and it's infinite nature makes understanding 100% of it literally impossible.
  4. Yes I just copy and paste the link usually works to bring up the thumbnail
  5. "your/my pov" is still imaginary. That's still ego, in fact experience isn't possible without ego. No self, no other, nobody is absolute. All experience is relative. A point of view requires a subject, which automatically creates an other. Instead getting hung up on this I would focus on realising that quite literally anything that can be experienced including the sensation of being a self with awareness is all part of the dream, all imaginary, all ultimately empty pure loving unlimited consciousness. Which is nice but....after a while that gets boring. Hence here you are.
  6. The lowest point can be a portal to the highest one. Or at least it can be. I think it was adyashanti that described it as a limbo zone that proceeds God/Spirit. This really only applies to the meditative path though, psychedelics take you straight to source but it's not the full picture IMO. I feel like both you guys could learn a lot from each other. Or I'm just full of shit lol. Yes! omg I know we need a live discussion between the two.
  7. It's usually the love aspect of GOD or the peace aspect of emptiness that keeps me here. Waking up doesn't have to always be some big explosion of madness, a lot of the time it's just a genuine letting go of attachment into a peace state of non-attachment, as if you were slipping into a warm bath made of tranquil love and acceptance. Getting too hung up on theories and concepts can cause this sort of existential despair, because that conceptual world in your mind is the ego's homeland, it thrives in these mental states, which is why I think too much intellectual contemplation can become an issue. Some of it can take you closer but too much takes you away into confusion. At this stage I would just completely let go of the whole idea of becoming enlightened or trying to understand and just sit and be. I honestly feel like you're making better progress than you realise; I remember hitting a wall at a certain point where the only thing keeping from progressing was my inability to let go. It really was that simple. Like Leo said try to enjoy it more and non take it too seriously. A little relaxation goes a long way.
  8. I like that. Now time to fuck language off and meditate some more adyashanti style.
  9. oh he's admitted to Duncan Trussell to having done em
  10. What's being said here is a bit of tricky bitch lol, how I see it is that in understanding that all is a single consciousness, the very idea that there's anything but that is illusory. So from that vantage point OF COURSE the present moment is all there is. When you look at a tree that is all there is, when you look at the sky that is all there is, because "tree" and "sky" is just consciousness, the distinctions made are merely illusory done for survival purposes. This is probably the most "absolute" of a perspective you could get sober. (But if we're speaking purely on relative terms then all the same rules apply.) I hope what I said there makes any fucking sense at all LOL.
  11. Hmmm interesting, the Godhead doesn't seem like an experience at all though because that requires a subject to experience it; hence my belief why the illusion exists in the first place is for "it" to know itself. But I agree all "experience" is absolute truth in the sense that it is always just consciousness and literally nothing else 24/7. This could all just be a semantics problem though. All language is dualistic after all.
  12. 2 sides of the same coin; everything and nothing
  13. hit the nail on the head right there dude
  14. or they'll make you way better at meditation, did for me at least.
  15. just do both and you'll be woke as fuck regardless. Obviously prioritise the meditation just because you can't exactly do psychedelics all that often if you care about safety.
  16. Getting in touch with your intuition on a deep level (meditation and psychs obviously help, recommend more surrender styles for letting go) and being able to develop the ability to better see the connection between two seemingly unrelated things. For instance in music genres I might say "well why can't I incorporate these unique metal elements into a hip-hop song with my own twist on the whole thing?" Fuzing different styles of things may be one way you do it, a new original idea is almost waiting to be discovered through such a method. Letting go of over analysing things and putting yourself in that flow type state is massive; simply being so present, focused, in flow and loving can all help. Surrender the mind. Developing better empathy towards others also allows you to be better inspired by their stories and relate that back to your own experience. You could then use that to illustrate a fundamental aspect of the human condition in a powerful, almost psychedelic manner. Being as vulnerable as you ever possibly could, pushing past those comfortable boundaries you hold onto and being brave enough to face those parts of yourself and believe in your ideas with confidence and express such energy into your work with intensity. Introspect deeply. Being a lover of mastery and excellence are crucial as you won't fully awaken that creative energy without attaining a great level of skill first. Get inspired constantly by other creatives and merge those influences until your own style comes out the other side. Remember that creativity itself is ultimately a practice that you do habitually. That's all i got.
  17. nothing wrong with taking inspiration from the many traditions so long as it doesn't turn to dogma.
