I thought some contemporary¬†students of Teilhard de Chardin had proposed the idea that¬†the internet was connecting us together,¬†manifesting as the noosphere or global mind. ūü§∑‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ There is probably more to it than what I summarize with¬†just one sentence.¬†

Jung brought the notion of individuation being a crucial aspect of Actualization. Individuation requiring integration of our varied aspects. This is where I see the genuine True Self and false self acting as basic mirrors or templates to one another. The false self acting unconsciously and the True Self rising from the ashes of the Alchemical fire or switching metaphors  being born out of the processes of integration and individuation.

Ive said that what Almaas refers to as the "Diamond Guidance" is the same thing as the Holy Spirit in the Christian Tradition. This note is just a preface to a quote of his below from The Pearl Beyond Price.

 

Ever-Deepening and Expanding Individuation

The presence of the Personal Essence makes it possible to have direct contact with present-centered experience, to be present, open and vulnerable to experience. This capacity, aided by the operation of the objective understanding of the Diamond Guidance, makes it possible to absorb present experience readily. One‚Äôs life becomes the metabolism of the interaction of the essential aspects with the environment. This continuing and ever expanding integration is the process of development of the Personal Essence. This ever-deepening and expanding individuation and maturity leads ultimately to the nonpersonal realms of Being, like those of Cosmic Consciousness, Nonconceptual Reality and Absolute Truth; this is the natural and spontaneous outcome of the development of the Personal Essence. It is part of the human potential, and if the process of maturation is proceeding in its correct path, then it is bound to occur. The presence of the Personal Essence is a sense of Being, of experiencing ‚ÄúI am.‚ÄĚ There is presence without resistance. So it is bound to go deeper into more expanded realms of Being. This understanding that the experience of ‚ÄúI am‚ÄĚ can lead directly to the nonpersonal realms is not an uncommon one among teachers of Being.

Pearl Beyond Price, pg. 195

I got started making comments above about the Terence McKenna clip below regarding the idea of the noosphere.

Guess I should have mentioned that and maybe include the clip.

                                     Psychonaut report

On Lsd my boundaries disappear for the most part = Love

Although chemically induced, it provides one with the experience of 'stepping onto the ground.'

Under the influence I've noticed I'm really in tune with my cat as opposed to when I'm in narrative consciousness.

No problems.

Terence McKenna prefered mushrooms as a psychedelic over Lsd. He said lsd was like Psychological drano. 

I get along with both ok.

Everyones chemistry is different. Using psychedelics needs to be approached with caution and common sense. Being in tune with ones inner truth every now and then as a signpost on the path is a necessity.

@Zigzag Idiot I find I get more mental work done on LSD and I integrate more of the trip rather than Mushrooms.

Love both tho.

Enjoying this Joe Rogan podcast with Russell Brand. It's good to see how lighthearted and civil they are to each other when discussing topics that they don't necessarily agree on.  At about an hour into it, the discussion goes into vegetarianism,,, hunting elk,, etc.,

After this, they touch on addiction, use of psychedelics. 

Ive avoided watching/listening to Joe Rogan very often in the past because the length of his podcasts. This has been a great conversation and I'm only half way through it. I have a new respect for both of these guys.

It just starts out resembling one. I'm thankful that I'm no longer hooked on the news like I used to be. Politics too. I used to always get hooked into (identified) with at least one political issue or news story everyday and get angry. What a waste of time that is. I just don't care in the same way that I used to.

Donald Trump getting elected President helped me to quit watching the news. Not meaning to be overly negative but I don't want to hear anything that dumb bastard has to say. Even with the sound turned down on the tv, I can tell he's stupid and crooked. Sure, there is some projection there on my part but it's not 100% projection. Not that I don't love him as a human being but as the power hungry personality that he is, occupying the office of the President, he's just a walking pile of dog shit.

I've been fairly quiet lately and reading on Stan Grof's New two volume set, The Way of the Psychonaut.  I bought Christopher M. Bache's Diamonds from Heaven - LSD And The Mind Of The Universe at the same time. I'm tempted to go ahead and start it while I'm still on Stan Grof's book.

I've done a lot of experimenting and have taken a lot of trips in the last year. A lot more than is probably necessary for an average person on the path of Actualization. I really enjoy Lsd and Cubensis mushrooms . Mdma is interesting and nice but I thought ketamine was a nightmare experience. It felt like being lost in a forest of Barber poles on the side of a steep mountain. Just a really unpleasant experience.

I remember from watching a YouTube of Christopher Bache, he said anything over 600 ug is just a waste and I feel like I've verified that for myself. On one occasion last year I took 1500 micrograms and several times I took around 1000 micrograms but I don't recommend doing that. Anyone who wants to try lsd should start with low doses to gauge themselves for subsequent trips. For some reason I seem to have a strong tolerance to Lsd. 

When on Lsd, the speed at which a chain of thoughts and concepts go through my mind is just amazing, at times.

 I barely knew who Kobe Bryant was because I'm not a fan of professional spectator sports but I "saw" the effect of his untimely death in the blue and orange SD groups of people. A fair amount of these people probably voted for Trump or were/are Trump fans. I felt how they were feeling their emotional pain and saw how they were kicked in the gut by the loss of this talented man and his family in that helicopter crash. It was such a weird experience for me in a way. To be, you might say, inside the head/heart of a lot of these people in a way that I normally wouldn't have been. It made me realize how something so unrelated could have an effect on political elections through a weird chain of events. Or maybe expressed more accurately, how this had an emotional effect on a certain percentage block of voters. It gets difficult for me to express the insight,,,,

The insight came about during one of those lsd high flow chain of thought states of consciousness, along with a dozen other things. For instance, the curiosity of whether any Astronauts have ever requested Molly Hatchet music to be played while they were in space.,,,, What? Yeah. That's how it goes a lot of times for me on trips. The profound is mixed in with the absurd, the silly, the outrageous, the painful and sad. Just like everyday life but at a much quicker pace and with a little more intensity. I wish I had kept a better diary of all the different trips.

Please report on it here once you finish it, I'm very interested in it. :)

I was a huge fan of Kobe all of my childhood, he's probably the only influential person I stuck with throughout my whole life. If this had happened 6 years ago I'd have been A LOT more devastated than I actually was now, knowing death is an illusion and there never was a Kobe. I was saddened but more so celebrated all of the inspiration he gave me. Still to this day, I apply the wisdom I learned from his insane work ethic. He really knew everything about passion-driven work. 

I think you'd be surprised by some of the wisdom he had during his second career as a storyteller, almost to the extent of a philosopher. He transcended orange and was in a green to yellow transmission before his death. But his fanbase is so massive that it mostly consists of blue/orange as one would expect.

@fridjonk  You bet! Actually, I started reading in it some today. His style of writing is a little easier to digest than Grof's. That's one of my first impressions. Also, to add some interesting trivia. There's a second appendix in the back titled :

Pushing the Limits of Astrological Correspondence

This does look interesting. ūüôā

 

 

My post early this morning is a good example of how I suddenly exhibit pettiness. My words about Donald Trump were a little bit harsh. A fitting expression in the form of a question would be. Who pissed in my Cheerios?

I was tempted to hide the harsh remarks but I guess I'll leave it as an example and record of my fractiousness and volatility.

I would bet that at some point in the future, or in Heaven, there's going to be a street of gold named Ocke de Boer Boulevard and also one named Red Hawk Boulevard. Just because of four little books between the both of them. Tonight, there's not any me. Just a feeling of well being.

I enjoyed his Biographical account in Warriors Way as much, if not more. He was a student of Ouspensky.lived a very interesting life. By profession he was a biologist.

Either one of these books make for a good alarm clock.

Chickens cooped up will pick at one another more than free reange birds. In the big commercial chicken houses, I've observed it in the brief amount of time that I've spent around them. Growing up, a percentage of my friends belonged to families that were held hostage by a mortgage against their farm and the promises of riches in the poultry business.

In the commercial houses it appeared like scapegoating would take place in the 'chicken community'. Weakened birds would eventually be pecked to death by the others. No escape!

I've seen cattle do it as well. While putting out hay in the winter, I would observe how the weakest ones of the herd were always being "T-boned' by the healthy animals. Chickens are worse with their brutality though, I believe.

You could call some of them aggravated chicken peckers in how they would gang up on the weak ones. The more damaged the scapegoated chickens became, the more attention they seemed to attract from the aggravated chicken peckers. Horses and goats pigs aren't exempt from forms of this behavior either.

People are like this too, it seems. They sometimes behave as the human equivalent of an aggravated chicken pecker. It's an automatic or mechanical behavior. Unconscious behavior in humans. Observing schadenfreude in oneself and waking up is required. Waking up has to be an inside job.

Ocke de Boer phrased it as people acting like unguided projectiles. Until the emotional center gets purified, we may periodically behave as unguided projectiles or unguided Golems' riding on the wild pendulum of emotions. The Intellectual emotional complex has to be balanced and worked on through getting grounded in the belly center. That's part of the recipe for fulasnitamnian awareness or three centered awareness.

Watching an old episode of Joe Rogan with Graham Hancock. They got on the subject of people acting shitty on the internet for no good reason at all at about 48 minutes in. This reminded me of how people often feed unconsciously on negativity,,,,

 

I just discovered that Joe Rogan is cool about ten years after the fact. The same way I 'discovered' Nirvana as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers were good bands. The YouTube Precogs are sending me these old podcasts to watch.

Gollum stays in Narrative consciousness all the time. There's an alternative to being an unguided Gollum, I remind myself. Beginning with self observation which is free of inner criticism.
