This life is all a dream, a dream within a dream. We dream this world, we dream that we die and take birth in another body. And in this birth we dream that we have dreams. All kinds of pleasures and suffering alternate in these dreams, but a moment comes when waking up happens. In this moment, which we call realizing the Self, there is the understanding that all the births, all the deaths, all the sufferings and all the pleasures were unreal dreams that have finally come to an end – Sri Annamalai Swami

Quote is from Michael Langford – The Seven Steps to Awakening

The root of the problems of mankind is in the individual, each individual. More fundamental than the question of whether humans act on more wrong ideas than on right ideas, is the question of why humans act on the authority of ideas at all. An idea is a plan to control change—that which cannot lastingly be controlled.

Quote is from the book: Robert Wolfe – Abiding in Nondual Awareness: exploring the further implications of living nonduality

To realize truth beyond any concept is letting go of all clinging and attachment, letting go of all religious concepts. From the ego’s perspective the finger pointing you to Samadhi is pointing straight toward the abyss. Saint John of the Cross said “If one wishes to be sure of the road they tread, one must close their eyes and walk in the dark.”

Once back in the hut, we tried again to figure out what was going on. I felt Dennis’s amazement was perfectly reasonable; it was my own encounter with the visionary and linguistic powers of DMT that had originally sent me looking into hallucinogens and their place in nature. It is incredible to see all that you believe about reality changed around by these plant metabolites. Excitement is a reasonable reaction to such an edifying, even terrifying, experience.
