Maddening, frightening levels of Infinity an consciousness

92 posts in this topic

So I just had what I would consider the most horrific experience of my entire life/construct. My first time having a "bad trip" I guess you could say. I'm left wanting absolutely nothing to do with enlightenment and spirituality. God Realization is fucking terrifying and I want my old life back. I'm feeling completely shook and terrified of psychedelics now. What to do?

All I know is that during this entire trip I was crying to myself "it's too much" and "I don't want enlightenment anymore" and I meant it.

I would seriously question your intentions with awakening and ask why you are doing it in the first place. Your life is already perfection in every sense of the word and I mean that. Awakening is not this glamorous thing as it's portrayed. It's actually the last thing you want.

I had something of a difficult trip myself tonight so I relate on that. But when I reflect it appeared difficult because i was resisting and not letting go. It happens sometimes. Just have to accept reality as it is. You don’t always get the trip you want

Damn, yeah, it happens. Take some time off spiritual seeking and do things you enjoy. Definitely no need to push it with awakening.

All states are enlightenment. More importantly Enlightenment is NOT being enlightened. How the fuck did I not see this untill it was too late.

Sorry for not seeing you in my previous comment.

I was caught up in my own dream and I didn’t see your process.

Thank you for sharing your experience ???

@Godishere Dude, I don't know how recent this experience was, but it might be helpful to just get off technology and be present with yourself.

I'm not telling you what to do, just saying what works for me.

Thank you for sharing. For me, It was and is the Realization I am God. And that no one was there to bring me back to reality because I was too conscious that I am everything. "It's all one" sounds fine and dandy. But for that to actually hit you at that level is just something else. It has completely shook me to the core.@BenG yeah I understand where your coming from, but I'll be alone in my own thoughts. Key word alone, is really the last place I wanna be. I'm done with the contemplation, just happy to live a good life. It's just too much consciousness for my ego to handle. I like the game of life and mystery to it, I purposely designed it that way.

@Godishere Fair enough man, and I get it. Last time I had an intense ego dissolution I was ready to totally give up spiritual work and just go for the simple life. In the days after I was getting an intense visceral void-like feeling in my chest that got highly painful. When I was able to accept it and be present with the pain, it lead to a blissful heart chakra experience that totally shifted my perspective. It can be extremely powerful to be present with whatever you're feeling.

It's the alone part that gets me. It's too much my ego to handle. I don't know how others have dealt with it. I see alot of people of this forum playing hide and seek with themselves. Awakened. Asleep. Awakened. Asleep. It's just so backwards though.

@Godishere Ah, but we're all together in being alone. Are we not?

@Godishere I have experienced that stuff too many times. Actually the lesson from those experiences has been: stop seeking for enlightenment.

Also it would make sense that there's a good reason why "we" are unlightened. Maybe it's better to be unlightened ;)

But, I don't know if my experiences were delusional ones, so nvm I guess. I don't know anything.

A creative, expressive, gift/talent/skill developing interest / activity. ‘Deal with’ really does morph into absolutely loving alone. Less tug of war… more best of ‘both worlds’. ?

Infinite love for you sir! ‘Bad trips’ are Good, hang in there! 

Btw, you won’t get nothin from me, but this apparent self is an expert of understanding, integration & embodiment, and available pretty much 24/7. What might seem horrific to one is the ordinary work this self does everyday.

Stop seeking enlightenment intentionally for now. Don’t repress old patterns to do practices which seem natural. It’ll just create unhelpful resistance. Mindfulness is your best friend right now if the insights are causing you distress. It will get you over the struggle if you’re able to rest into it.

I wish you all the best: and a question appeared: you designed it purposely, right. Why do you think you designed it that way that you had to get the shocking experience? just to be clear that you you want to play totally the game of life?

It is alone because it is all encompassing, a very different aloneness than the connotations of that word.

Alone in pure stillness is very different than me ruminating on the prospect of a single divine being being alone. God is not a being.

That being said you as a human wouldn't wanna stay there, hence here we are. 

Being alone in our finite minds is way more terrifying to me. WAY MORE. FUCK THAT. xD

Yeah, can very much relate to this. For me it was "I wanna be devil again". It's actually fun to be a finite self haha

This is where the phrase "It is what it is" comes in. You don't really have a choice but to accept it. At first it is shocking but if you get used to it actually becomes beautiful

It's quite funny at times. If you go for a walk people look at you as a stranger, but they are not a stranger to you at all

Ask yourself this, why do you want others to exist? What's the point?
