Enlightenment Experience
    #1160755 - 12/21/02 06:40 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Yesterday i finally saw it, awakening. I stumbled on to a form of meditation when i was close to suicide. I couldnt take it anymore, i had tried everything, and that is finally when i gave up trying. It was the scariest thing i have ever seen because i had seen it before and i had hoped it was not the same thing. the eternal moment, timelessness, selflessness, the universe contained within my kitchen, hallucinogenic, the mushroom without the loops. I have had several aftershocks after this experience but i have come down considerably now because for some reason even though i hated it i have become addicted to it, and i have pushed it away again. I have documented a clear path while to precipitate your awakening which i will upload in a few moments.

During the awakening i went to go get a cigar on my bike and people were stopping driving by in there cars and staring at me and others began to yell. i managed to drain my bank acount which had become non - exsistant. i had a long conversation with my dad about how riding a bike with no headlights is illegal, and a i manged to be able to control the wind which was in my face. I have become quite numb after this experience and i'm just going back to living my normal life, because attempting to bring the experience back the same way i got there is not working. everything seems reversed like if i pay no attention to enlightenment, then it will happen again, i'm so confused, but anyways:

peace>

im pretty sure people who meditate for years and practice a lot and stuff do it because to experience true ego loss without the practice would shred your sanity.... its hard to not have an ego, and still partake in society. why would you? mebbe they know why? i sure as hell dont. practice will create a stronger mind, which can handle the destuction of the ego

stan grof (& many other folks) have formed something called (?) spiritual emergenge network (spiritual crisis network?)(googlesearch will get you there...) for people who have an awakening experience and need help to integrate it into the more everyday world...
i betcha stephen gaskin could lend a hand as well...
be well & take care of yourself...

even that old chestnut by r m bucke, _cosmic consciousness_, could show you how folks 100+ years ago reacted to "awakening"...
