RE: Curious About Ancient Wisdom Mysteries

in #esotericlast year

If you like or are interested in exploring your own consciousness and do not want to take plant medicines like psilocybin or ayhuaska (dmt) then you should try lucid dreaming (if you haven't already). It takes some effort, concentration, and dedication (of course like all things) but its relatively easy to achieve results. And you can clearly distinguish a result that occurs as well which is nice. Its definitely an interesting experiment with consciousness. Practicing mindfulness is very beneficial as well but that is much different of course. It's about being present in the moment not having any sort of psychedelic or hallucinogenic "wow!" moment. Anyway, just a thought. Good luck in your decision whatever you choose (to explore or not explore).

Lucid Dreaming is great! I use the laying still and imagining myself pulling a rope to astral project method! I would try things like mushrooms if they become legal like I have been hearing that they might! We go to a lot of Psytrance Festivals and it is all about expanding consciousness! 😉

Here was a post I made a few years ago when I tried Salvia back when it was legal!

You can learn a lot about yourself and the nature of reality from psilocybin. The experiences that I've had with it are the most significant of my life - spiritually I mean. Salvia I always find to be challenging. It's so fast and short lived that it's hard to gain meaningful insight about yourself or even the experience itself. Its definitely interesting in that it kind of gives you a peak behind the veil of reality though and certainly makes one question the greater reality. But again, its very challenging to understanding the experience on a deeper meaningful level. There is stuff to learn for sure but it's more challenging is all. It's interesting from a neuroscience perspective though as well. Tweak the chemicals in the human brain and the experience of reality changes completely. It certainly demonstrates that the brain is merely a reality filter. We think we can "understand" reality because we can use logic and reason. But when you turn off that side of the brain nothing makes sense anymore. Reality is now different. It may be adaptive from an evolutionary perspective to believe that we can understand the world but I seriously doubt anymore that an absolute truth exists. Knowing and understanding are likely just an illusion to assist in the survivability of the organism. There is no absolute meaning. Meaning is a self created illusion. I suspect that is why many hard core heavy meditating Buddhist say "all you can do is laugh."

Very good insight! I do agree it was great to see “behind the veil” of reality.. I remember seeing reality like a hologram, and behind it was fragments of this eternal light that seemed more real than reality. It seemed like the light was all spirits and communicated through telepathy. I always find the same answer when exploring the spiritual realm, which is that life is about love and the moment we are always in. As we exist in this moment always.. We choose our reality, and by existing in the 4th dimension we are able to choose the path of the 5th dimension to manifest whatever reality we choose.

I'm not sure what you mean by 4th and 5th dimensions but that sounds interesting.

I've played a little, but it's in the same category as the other things I mentioned. It would take time, intention, and commitment to really figure out. I know people who dedicated a year plus to stuff like this and it impacted their sleep schedule, etc. Maybe I'm just waiting for the right timing to really dive in.
