Excitement in Reigate – something has arrived all the way from Texas.
Call me Davy Crockett. ‘Texas. The Lone Star State.’
For the last few months, most Saturdays, Jenny and I have indulged in Saturday Afternoon at the Movies. Saturday morning in her case. We have watched a variety of movies – Pan’s Labyrinth, Donnie Darko, Moon, Particle Fever and even The Evil Dead, and others.
This has opened things up for the both us, I think and maybe further afield. Who knows. My firm view is that movies and TV and video games and You Tube can be a portal into the subconscious.
Last saturday we watched ‘DMT – The Spirit Molecule’. This article isn’t about the rights and wrongs of hallucinogens. They are not something I have ever felt a strong urge to explore.
I worked five days a week for ten years with a mass of crystals which in hindsight was a ten year crystal trip. And also in 1997-1998, I went into meditation very deeply and led me to some extremely weird and wonderful places, and eventually led to my head being blown off in spectacular fashion. It’s been a ‘Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul’. And now I, and probably most of us, have got to the point where Life is one huge trip, every day.
But I think hallucinogens can be insightful and take us to different realms and open up different ways of viewing reality. And the same can be said for other drugs such as LSD, cannabis, ecstasy and even alcohol. Sex can also transport you to a ‘different place’. And I cannot describe the feeling of scoring a goal at football.
But the bummer is that we always end up ‘back here’ which can be extremely frustrating. You now know that there is something far greater than our restricted reality, and it is difficult to engage in meaningful discussion about house prices and the result of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.
In the movie, one of the interviewees described his DMT experience and what jumped out at me was that he could be describing our own reality.
At some point, I imagine myself waking up from this reality, and having a conversation with TTN, for example. And I will say something along the lines of :
‘It was so weird, man. We were both wearing a man suit. And we thought we could die. And we needed things and we thought were guilty and we were afraid.
And there were lots of others in man and woman suits who thought the same thing. And there were wars and poverty and something called money and work. And the man and woman suits hated the other man and woman suits. It’s the freakiest place, you can imagine’.
For me, the heart of the matter is Guilt and the fear of God – ‘I am a sinner’. We are on a huge ‘Guilt Trip’.
What if God’s Law is that there is no Law ? And there is no contract which we have to adhere to. Could sin exist if there is no Law and how could we then be sinners ?
The Restrainer. The vid includes talk about ‘Scripture’ which is when I tend to zone out, but I think is on the right lines.
The Law and Love of God. From ACIM :
‘Think of the freedom in the recognition that you are not bound by all the strange and twisted laws you have set up to save you. You really think that you would starve unless you have stacks of green paper strips and piles of metal discs. You really think a small round pellet or some fluid pushed into your veins through a sharpened needle will ward off disease and death. You really think you are alone unless another body is with you.
It is insanity that thinks these things. You call them laws, and put them under different names in a long catalogue of rituals that have no use and serve no purpose. You think you must obey the “laws” of medicine, of economics and of health. Protect the body, and you will be saved.
These are not laws, but madness. The body is endangered by the mind that hurts itself. The body suffers just in order that the mind will fail to see it is the victim of itself. The body’s suffering is a mask the mind holds up to hide what really suffers. It would not understand it is its own enemy; that it attacks itself and wants to die. It is from this your “laws” would save the body. It is for this you think you are a body.
There are no laws except the laws of God. This needs repeating, over and over, until you realize it applies to everything that you have made in opposition to God’s Will. Your magic has no meaning. What it is meant to save does not exist. Only what it is meant to hide will save you.’
And not to with anything above, but a cherub has appeared in The Secret Garden.
And a message from your sponsor. Don’t hide your light under a bushel. Have a Brazilian. Or maybe not. It’s your choice.
