  1. FMAB talks about enlightenment
  2. @Leo Gura You could do Seattle and Portland back to back since Seattle is a two hour drive to Portland. Plus I’m moving to Portland in a couple weeks so it would be cool to meet self actualizers there early in my stay! Win win efficiency!
  3. Contemplation on every topic has worked well for me, but I’m wondering now if I should just stay present more. One the one hand, contemplation seems necessary for a lot of insights. But on the other hand, maybe just being present will do more for me. I could have insights just from observing what is around me. What is a good balance? Or should I start to just focus more on mindfulness? I’m not sure, since contemplation seems like a really good method. If I could just focus on mindfulness for nonduality maybe I could just do that and reach infinity. Contemplation seems like a good method for that too though(neti neti). Which one would be better? Is just being in the moment the best way to go(mindfulness and also just being present)? If I’m seeing infinity in My everyday experience, should I continue to contemplate? Or just basque in the presence of it? I remember osho said he stopped reading books cuz it wasn’t raising his being. Maybe I could just focus on my being? How important will contemplation be after infinity is seen at all times? How much shadow work and personal development work is really needed at that level of consciousness? Wouldn’t a lot of it just naturally fizz out? And as you raise your being won’t you be able to reach the highest without contemplation? Lemme know what you guys think.
  4. Once you are enlightened though, isn’t it the case that you will always be in that state? Even if you are playing an ego role to interact with the world, you will still see it all as yourself.
  5. Some people claim that you need your ego after enlightenment to function in the world. Is this true? From what it seems to me, enlightenment is the complete loss of ego permanently. There is no more self, only the personality will remain. Yes you can think and conceptualize things, but you still see it as all you when you do this right? Maybe when people say this, maybe they just mean ego as personality and conceptualizatiln though there is no more self? Or maybe this is just one stage on the path towards enlightenment, though I don’t think so? Edit: Another question I have is how attached to your opinions are you when you are enlightened. I think it would be none, but then you have people like Osho who said he was going to war with Sheela in wild wild country. What is up with that? Or gurus who start cults. This just seems like not embodying enlightenment. What do you guys think?
  6. @Leo GuraHow does absolute infinity fit into all this? If all duality collapses you could say it’s nothing as a facet of reality. But then there is absolute infinity. Is absolute infinity saying everything is happening? Or is it saying that everything is happening and it’s all nothing is just the nothingness facet with absolute infinity being it’s own facet? Or is it saying all the something and all the nothing are happening? Or is it beyond all that? And is god absolute infinity? Or nothingness? Or is god just reality and these are all facets of god?
  7. @Leo GuraA little side question:How important is study when it comes to personal development and enlightenment? Say if you became hella enlightened right now(like for example Eckhart Tolle) how important would it be to do personal development? I feel like you would grow hugely from the enlightenment. And then the need for books wouldn’t really be a thing? Is studying personal development literature important?(say standard self help like tony Robbins, or maybe some sort of stage green or yellow self help?) or would you not need that since you are beyond all that? You have outgrown it all after you integrated the enlightenment? Maybe you have gone up to turqoise within a couple years? What is the importance of literature on personal development when you have a radical enlightenment? I’m just trying to get a big picture here. edit: Does it vary from person to person on who needs study or should everyone study?
  8. @Leo GuraWhat about lucidity though? Isn’t it you just like you feel more there?(unlike a dream where you are unconscious). How is seeing through distinctions and lucidity connected?
  9. I feel when I force myself to think a certain way I avoid my true beleifs and feelings. Like I’m lying to myself and just pushing all my negative emotions and thoughts under the rug. I also feel the law of attraction can be a big hindrance due to spiritual bypassing.Wouldn’t it be better to not worry about positive thinking and instead just work on your limiting beleifs or raise your awareness to enlightenment? And always being honest with yourself? And the law of attraction would be: once you change your beleifs or let them go, you automatically attract these things. Also how does enlightenment affect the law of attraction? Can you use your god consciousness for the law of attraction? How would that work? And what are the metaphysical aspects of the law of attraction (how does it fit into the bigger picture?)
  10. Some people say reality is real and not real at the same time. Is that the case? Or maybe that’s how it seems at a certain level of consciousness? Or is it ONLY nothing and infinity or whatever? And also is consciousness just lucidity as in you feel like reality is more lucid(unlike a dream where you feel out of it)?Or is it just awareness of your mental concepts and seeing through those into the emptiness or infinity or whatever facet? That’s what it seems like the most to me from my experience. Self inquiry got me feeling insane. Or is it your level of growth? People say raise you consciousness through personal development. That doesn’t make sense to me. Raising your consciousness(enlightenment work) seems to be a different facet of human development than personal development work though they can both effect each other. Raising your consciousness is about seeing Truth (or maybe lucidity?) while personal development is working on your behaviors, life, etc. Can I get a clear answer on all these please? What is the case, or are these all ways of defining consciousness?
  11. That’s all good stuff to know. Makes me less worried for him. It could be a huge transition from stage orange to green too.
  12. READ WHOLE THING BEFORE RESPONSE! okay so this is going into the meditation section because, well, it has a lot of do with that. I gotta friend who did one tab of acid, and realized he was god he said. He did it again 3/4 a tab and smoked weed with it this time too and had a bad trip saying everything disappeared (ego death) with lots of hallucinations and freaking out. It was really bad. He then did dmt (a lot of his 100milligrams) a week later on the same day since it was weak dmt but he said time disappeared. He got no visuals. Ever since the second acid trip he’s been tripping out it seems like. Maybe it was the dmt. Changing all his life plans(he wanted to go to LA to be an actor or something along those lines maybe a director but now wants to travel across America. He said he wanted to hitchhike it last I heard), give his life to god letting god run the show (but he wants to keep a little bit of his ego he said so...i don’t know what that means) being really weird and not himself, talking really monotone, being super nervous looking and monotone and odd and bugeyed while explaining his plan to let god Run his life while saying he has no plan he’s just gonna let it happen, practicing mindfulness 24/7, and he says he feels like the next jesus(he’s been learning enlightenment from the Bible without other enlightenment study or minimal study, except what I say about it and the Bible and now some Alan Watts). Found out today that he has a family history of bipolar disorder. These psychedelics plus being a pot head is fucking him up I think. Some of this stuff seems like it could be really good, but really I think it’s a manic episode. He has took a drastic change. Within a week or two span after the dmt. I feel a dark energy. Today he took a vow of silence for a week. guess he is not talking even at work. My friend who just turned 19 your old friend is doing all this. Any advice for how to help my friend? Me and my other friends are really worried about him. Can you give me some insight on understanding what he is going through? Like what is going on here? I feel like he is falling into a dark place. And pushing too hard on enlightenment. It isn’t healthy I’ll tell you that. You would have to see it yourself to understand really how drastically he changed. It has turned neurotic I feel. He has a spiritual ego now which I get. Maybe a god complex type deal (next Jesus) it looks like to me at least. And possibly it is a manic episode. Are we just overthinking it? I doubt it. We have all noticed. And I feel like ppl do change drastically after enlightenment sometimes. But this huge shift came after the second acid trip and dmt. Not his first experience of god. After his first he just had an ego lash back. Now shits getting wacky. Any advice would help. Thanks a lot. Let me know what y’all think is happening. Maybe it’s all good honestly we will have to see EDIT: I guess I just want to know your guys opinion on what is happening with him and nonduality and his psychology and how to help him back to a healthy version of himself. And I guess I’m just asking how normal is all this after psychedelics? Maybe we’re just misunderstanding it.
  13. Once your enlightened it seems like some people don’t even care about anything. Nothing matters at all to them. Like they might say if they’re daughter dies they don’t care, it’s just a part of the dream. Is that true across all enlightened beings? Or do some of the more deeply enlightened ones actually do care and love people, care about people, have empathy for people, etc? I’d feel like I’d be losing my humanity if I didn’t care at all. I think it would make sense if they thought it’s okay if somebody died or whatever it’s just how life goes, but I mean won’t they still be sad if their mom died or something?
