Angelo Dilullo MD (extremely direct and comprehensive teacher of liberation)

Upon discovering that he isn't already well known here, I am pleased to introduce this gem of a teacher to the forum. He's only been around as a public teacher for like a year -- so it makes sense that this is the first time you're hearing of him -- but he's been awake for many years. Even if you're awake yourself he's still a great guide for the absolute highest stages and embodiment of these most rarified perceptual shifts in identity.

If one is interested in awakening, he's the best teacher I've found, in my opinion. And he's an anesthesiologist which is pretty interesting.

His first book "Awake" is available.

At least one of his students authentically woke up at just age 23:

 

 

Probably the best introduction to awakening; first video of a highly recommended 5 part series on another channel called ZDoggMD:

watched briefly... I see they are talking about self-inquiry.
when I was a child I used to have experiences where I'd feel like my ego is collapsing as I start questioning  'where am I' ' form where did I come'  'who am I really' ? and It was so scary for me that I had to calm myself down and tell myself to forget these question, and I'll forget about it and they'll disappear.
 

I'm not sure if I was going somewhere there with this kind of self inquiry, but I've been trying to figure out this self-inquiry business for myself, and that 'zone' seems to be the closest thing I have in my direct experience of really questioning who I'm. Idk how to reproduce anymore or who if can, but it stuck with me how powerful these inquires where and how just asking myself these questions triggered terror in me at that time.

I listened to it. It's standard neo-Advaita stuff. A great example of not God-realization.

Can you even name one person/school of thought available online that you would consider God-realization, or in that direction?

The interview convo on ZDoggMD? He’s not going to talk that advanced in a mere introduction to awakening / “awakening, explained” video.

But yeah, this is not the same thing as God-realization, which basically requires psychedelics, relatively speaking. This is abiding nondual awareness. I believe in the following video, but certainly in several others as well, it is very clear they’re talking about the equivalent of self inquiry and spiritual autolysis. But not just the technique like any other good source on the topic, the actual experience report of what stripping layers of self away actually looked like for a person waking up from the dream of separation from everything — that's not exactly new, Jed McKenna is a good example too, but variety certainly can’t be found very easily.

Well, that's what my judgment was based on.

what's the difference between god realization and abiding in non dual awareness? and what else is there besides those two things?

God realization is the direct experience that (and how) you're imagining the entire universe, brought on by an explosion of conscious power, generally with psychedelics but not necessarily -- it's unity consciousness taken as far as possible, basically.

Abiding nondual awareness is liberation; the irreversible collapse of separate identity; the seeing-through of other and the illusory ego byproduct (separation from everything), brought on by stripping away all layers of the ego structure/apparatus.

but for god realization who is it that realizes they are imagining the universe? awareness?

the first awakening I ever had was realizing I was god but I didn't know who "I" was and I didn't realize "how" I was god. but that was the first realization I ever had then the later insights was just putting all the pieces together of how I could possibly be god

God. All there is. That's just a good word for what you really are.

so can you have both non abiding realization and god realization ? or is one a deeper version of the other?

It's some of the other videos that I was impressed by. He seems to have more success actually getting people to wake up than most other teachers. When Dr Zubin mentioned Mooji as an example of a good teacher and Dilullo nodded with him... with the greater context of having seen certain other videos of Dilullo, I'm quite certain he was just being polite. He doesn't really care too much about teachers, and just focuses on describing the daunting (while making it simple) technique of unknowing the false self. My overall impression is that his style is very much not weak-sauce. It appears ZDoggMD served to promote Angelo's book and channel -- Dr Zubin is just starting the path basically.

Three distinct awakenings I can remember: God realization, nondual recognition, liberation. Nondual recognition will always come before liberation, but other than that any of those can happen without the others -- though again liberation won't happen until after nondual recognition; liberation isn't a one and done thing like nonduality (collapse of identity), but the additional stripping away of the layers that hide the indescribable intimacy that's really going on.

I don't actually. That's maybe down the pipeline, but I'm not a teacher.

@The0Self you don’t necessarily need psychedelics for god realization
