JUST Experienced Psychadelically Induced Ego Loss
    #2570112 - 04/17/04 03:08 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm writing this within two minutes of the event, so I'f I don't make too much sense, please forgive me. It seems that to write from this state is much more difficult - too much of a step down!

Ego death had a considerable amount of pain and agitation to start. The self consumed in the fire of truth produces much anziety. But as the self disolves a core of love is revealed and you as this core of love are released from this anziety (ego) into the consuming fire of love.

This experience now leads me to believe that all that will remain of me after death is the consciousness of love. Everything else will be burned off by the purifying fire of love that is the face of God.

Albino_Jesus: No. I personally never have, and most certainly never will.

Source, welcome to the truth, traveller. It is a long, strange road from here. Psychadelics may remove the blindfold, but the truth is hideous.

Thanks daba and Kottonmouth. I wanted to write about it as soon as I could. Have you seen those Buddhist depictions of the gurards of the temple gates? Or Hinduism's 'Kali the Destroyer' (fierce, but with the hand gesture of 'have no fear')? Or even the Judeo-Christian concept of the guard with the flaming sword at the entrance to Eden?

I understand now what they represent. They represent what the ego perceives as it heads toward it's final destruction. Only consciousness can pass through, the rest is destroyed. A truly frightening sight indeed. The fierceness of the experience is enough to want to turn and run away (back to the wheel of birth and death). But they are the guardians to the 'holy of holies'. If you have no fear, you can make it through - although what makes it through isn't really you.

MollyDolly,

Yeah, I 'knew' it too. But to experience it is a totally different matter (not that you haven't).

What if love is just another aspect of the ego?

it makes sense that after ego, there's only love.  Like when someone truly loves someone else (if you believe in this kind of thing :laugh:) and they'd be willing to die for them... doesn't that seem like a lack of ego?

A little romantic for my taste, but thought I'd share that.

Jumped in a river, what did I see?
Black eyed angels swimming with me
Moon full of stars and astral cars, all the figures I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and all my futures
We went to heaven in a little rowboat
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

I believe that the ego is a functional necessity of experience and thus it is not possible to experience ego loss.

ego is only a necessity for 3rd dimension focus in the beta brainwave, it is but a protective mask for focused, physical reality.

You are not supposed to. Sounds more mystical that way.

I suspected that the post was intended to appeal to some emotional sense in order to evade logical analysis, but I wanted to give him a chance to be taken seriously instead of deriding his post right away.
