Am I too Stupid for God?

I was posting on my second home away from home, "AboveTopSecret.com", and I came across a post asking, "Am I too stupid for God?" It broke my heart. I see people who are utterly trashed by religion and other toxic nonsense on ATS all the time. Now to be fair, nearly all mysticism, spirituality and the like trashes people too.. not to mention politics and economics. This Earth has been really messed up by us humans.. it's a miracle that there is one person left who may not be certifiably broken.. rich or poor it doesn't matter. But here is what I responded: "The very fact that you exist means…

Spirituality is the Study of Death

The "Universe" is immortal and will keep birthing and killing all of us forever. We are one set of possible sets of self-expression for the Universe, and the Universe both can't and won't throw away part of it's evolutionary fitness Landscape. Now will the "stuff" collaborating to form "us" keep evolving relatively compared to the Absolute frame? Yes. But when "the stuff we think of as "us" evolves" that is in fact the death of the "current us". Spirituality is the study of death. If you can't stomach death, then you are just deluding yourself, and aren't "spiritual" at all. Most people are stuck in loops of MHS or Kundalini…

Souls, MHS and Kundalini Psychosis

Most people's personal thoughts about "Enlightenment" and a "Path" are colored by the personal delusion of having an immortal soul. You can pick out who knows something, and who does not, based upon what they know about "souls". Since a "soul" can arise and "fall" in a single life.. and of course since humans never even started making "souls" until relatively recent history, any philosophy of "enlightenment", would be required to take these facts into account. As a matter of fact, the desire to have a soul, is the absolute earmark, that a person has yet to properly begin on a spiritual path at all. To really put a nail…

Becoming One with God

I'll add for general jocularity value,that a great number of people are obsessed with "becoming one with God", while God is "obsessed" with building entire planets to make sure that people are NOT (consciously) "one with God". Now yes, there is all sorts of yearning in the system in both directions (both to be separate and not to be separate). That's why I find the greatest possible value in the liminal state---it's the only way to have your cake and to eat it too. Kevin Pretty Bear

Intellectual vs. “Mystical” Enlightenment

Wouldn't it be grand if everyone were Enlightened, or at least enlightened. But what does that even mean? Here are two definitions from Dictionary.com (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/enlightened): enlightened /ɪnˈlaɪtənd/ adjective 1. factually well-informed, tolerant of alternative opinions, and guided byrational thought: an enlightened administration, enlightened self-interest 2. privy to or claiming a sense of spiritual or religious revelation of truth:the search for an enlightened spiritual master Now using as always the principle of "As below, so above", we will first examine "Intellectual Enlightenment" rather than so-called "spiritual enlightenment", as much of that may be simple bull shit. Let us say that you wished to prepare yourself for potential "spiritual enlightenment", then you can go about…

The Destruction of the World by Patriarchy

I feel VERY sorry for followers of Abrahamic faiths, as they have been deluded and victimized for several thousand years.. and it is nearly impossible to rescue one from the ancient "mind virus". I do not enjoy, nor wish to "bash on individual victims. It's not just Christianity of course.. it's all the Abrahamic faiths.. and even more than that, it's all the Patriarchal faiths. The confusion and ignorance about souls was bad enough. But then the destruction of the "family" (imputing Divinity to the "male" only) led to the marginalization of the "female", which led to to wholesale consumption and destruction of all life on Earth. In the case of Christianity, the…

Ego is Just Awareness of a Boundary

Ego is just awareness of a boundary. Nothing more, nothing less. Even amoebas have "awareness of a boundary". However humans have toxic egos for the most part. When a ego gets so snarled up, that one loses the ability to interact in a meaningful and useful manner with "others" (and that includes "the Other"), then that is the problem. Humans tend to be so sick, that most "other species" don't want to deal with us. We are a young species is all. Not evil. Just young. Kevin Pretty Bear

Souls and Gods

K: This is a bit of a dialogue beween myself and my friend BeanSidhe: "Souls and gods are very similar. If you understand one you automatically understand the psychology of both. INCLUDING how mistruths and confusions have created both. 10,000 years or so ago..."souls" did not exist. Now please explain this truth to me...I have faith you can do it." B: I was looking for this article for you because it might interest you. The following is from an anthropologist who wonders whether the idea of a soul is closer to 200, 000 yrs old.... The slab, or stele, was recovered from an Iron Age city called Sam’al in Turkey.…

The Beginning of Enlightenment

One of my FAVORITE concepts is about "enlightenment". Most MHS sufferers are wanting to compare themselves to some lofty type of being. But if you are SERIOUS about "enlightenment", then that means you seek the dispelling of delusion, which means that you enjoy being proven wrong. So learning some amazing insight should excite one as much as being proven to be tragically wrong about anything and Everything. Hardly anyone ACTUALLY wants to be "enlightened". Rather they want an increase in social status due to you believing their "B.S". Kevin Pretty Bear

Liminality is the Start of Spirituality

Ego is in fact critical  and not to be despised or even "clumsily minimized". The thing that's awesome about Liminality, is that you never lose your "ego", and in fact you can live in a "liminal state" for your entire life without losing it. The "ego" just sits there like a potential, and just rises up strongly WHEN REQUIRED; otherwise you have the flexibility to be as "spiritual as you want". "True Spirituality" simply being the act of having "sex" (kibitzing with other) with the Universe (or a part of it). So you see, most "spiritual people" don't even rise to the level of being wrong.. since Liminality is the…
