Can I meet "God" while tripping...if I'm athiest?
    #11180834 - 10/04/09 04:40 PM (8 years, 15 days ago)

I hear a lot of stories about people taking psychedelic drugs and "meeting God".

I've never had an experience like this, and I'm curious if it is because I'm atheist?

I don't believe in the "God(s)" of any existing religions.  I believe "God" is the result of trying to understand something we don't have the ability to understand.

I'm not stubborn in my beliefs, they actually change somewhat often.

Has anyone else with a similar pov had a visit from "God" while tripping?

If within all the combinations and cocktails of our own endogenous chemicals there is a resulting sensation or feeling of meeting God, I see no reason one's beliefs would alter the ability to experience it.

I have.. but i only call it God so others would have some sort of idea as to what im talking about.

You can.. the only thing you need to do in order for this meeting to happen.. is completely silence your mind.. and allow your body to give in to the ecstasy of the mushroom experience.


Silent darkness... 5 grams... preferably alone.

... dont move...
just sit... and breathe..

My dad once came in while I was tripping. So people create a father figure (god) to help with their fears and anxieties.

He couldn't even tell we were tripping balls and smoking. Some god. He just wanted to know what that smell was.:monkeydance:

A much more advanced technique is to just sit... and not breathe.

I often sit and shit and breath.

It's very enlightening.

So it was truly necessary for you to add "breath" which cannot be avoided anyhow?

If you don't believe in God you can't meet him.

It wasnt 'truly necessary' as you say..
but i wanted to add it.


There is a difference between breathing ... and thinking about your breathing while you do it..
you  soon realize that it is much different than simply allowing this process to happen on its own without consciously focusing on it and regulating it.

you don't need to believe in god to have a spiritual experience.

True.  I've heard many spiritual statements come from people who are ostensibly atheist.  And psychedelics can bring about personal transformation(which I think of as spiritual) even if it's not of an explicitly religious nature.  Here's George Carlin talking about how psychedelics affected him:

Yes.  A confrontation with the unconscious (collective?) of sorts.  An intelligent domain of pure information and organizing potential that elbowed my previous point of view out of my immediate experience temporarily.

Lead me to believe that the term God has been purposely misrepresented/inaccurately defined and personified/anthropomorphised.

I think an atheist is closer to this experience.  Then, of course the experience and subsequent insights begs for context.

One can find adequate reference in common mythology, imo.  But still...

'What is it...??':confused:

People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't
think that's what we're really seeking. I think what we're seeking is an
experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely
physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and
reality, so we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.:flowerchild:

If doesnt fuckin matter if your atheist, God isnt a person in the sky that you meet I've tripped enough of times and tripping isnt about getting fucked up....everytime ive tripped god had been with me...no offense to atheists but if you dont believe in anything spiritual then why are you questioning on this forum.....ive been to the next level and back and just writing this I hope some people are on the same level as me because no one else seems to be.........I've seen a kid eat 3 grams of mushrooms...piss himself and speak in tounges which i thought he was going into permatrip.....mushrooms is a sacred thing that shouldnt be fucked with....not even 4 weeks after that, i experienced a bad trip that changed my life for the good and ive eaten enough mushrooms to know not to fuck with them like that...if you take mushrooms to get fucked up.............you are weak minded..i eat them to look out of the box in within things , to be in touch with the earth and everyone around me, but who you trip with plays a big part in your trip, for example if you trip with someone with a weak mind-chances are you pick up their vibrations which sends you into a bad tripp..and bad trips are hell you get thrown into a hole and cant get out, but positive trips are the best thing in the world........i didnt meet God,God is the plants,trees,atmostphere,earth,nature anything that makes you happy so if you cant grasp that theres some other spirits out there, then i dont know what to tell you, if ppl are telling you they meet god, its not in that context Tripping brings me in touch with these things ,so again I didnt meet God...but I was in touch with God and whatever you think God is was there with me
