ha i like that grateful dead blanket.

ive experienced some of this.. not quite the godhead but definitely complete ego death. it was one of the most profoundly moving experiences of my life. i cant even articulate in words the way my frame of mind was changed.. other than a deep understanding and peaceful calmness about my existence and place in the universe.

That's really fascinating experience you had! It is also interesting how you don't lose yourself even when ego is removed, in fact, we could say you find your true awareness.

In magick there is a process known as "Crossing the Abyss", where you transcend casual and enter into the realm of acasuality. It can be very dangerous, but if successful, you can then access various archetypal energies directly, and channel immense power into this world, or simply work on yourself and attain even higher awareness. As Adept you then become living nexion between this and acasual realm.

I think most psychedelic drugs allow you to peek inside this realm in disorganized and uncontrolled way, more or less just for entertainment, but sometimes you can have extremely lucid experiences, some of which can change your life and views on the Universe in a very profound way.

a few grams of really good mushrooms, only psychedelic ill touch.

speaking from experience, it should be said that stuff like this is very dangerous in the wrong setting or mood and should be approached with caution.

funny thing. i had a similar experience with a large quantity of shrooms as well (2+ grams). not scary at all but a complete loss of identity.

God is the singularity point of all consciousness.

Universe contains both matter and dark matter, therefore God and Anti-God. In Catholic terms, Christ and Anti-Christ. Both are needed for creation and balance, if you destroy one, everything gets destroyed. This is why God cannot destroy Satan, ever.

Some say God and Satan represent different natural forces in the Universe and human psyche. That is correct, but there is more than just a force or aspect of nature -- this life-giving force comes from both sides, from both Light and Darkness, and gives life to the entire Universe, inside and outside our perception. It means there are other sentient beings in existence, which are not human. For Catholics that would include demons and angels, for pagans various ancient Gods and godforms, for adepts various egregores and other man-made servitors. In time some of those evolve, and some are forgotten, waiting for others to remember and invoke them.

Ultimately, the important question is not if you believe in someone's concept of God, but rather, which god you want to evolve into.
