Having an altered connection to life around you is weird. I've managed to grab on to the feeling a few times, without any sort of drugs or what have you. But it's by no means an easy process and definitely not a permanent feeling. I came at a crossroads in my life where it became very important that I found a way to explain my meaning to myself. And I sort of managed to achieve this altered 'feeling of consciousness' once I achieved an explanation that was logically or rationally satisfying for myself. There's probably different ways of approaching the same feeling, I'm a very scientific person so that's probably why I had to take this route. But the feeling itself was quite… peculiar. Instead of just passively partaking in life without thinking twice about it, you very actively feel time and people and nature sort of flow and change around you. Almost like a cosmic river of living matter and ideas actively pouring into eachother, influencing eachother. And you see all these little bits and humans and things around you ebbing back and forth as tiny little cogs in this gigantic fucking machine. It's a very peculiar feeling and my peanut brain only manages to hold on to it for a few seconds at a time but it is a mindblowingly pleasant experience.

One very important key factor I know for sure is that you need to display curiosity. And a whole buttload of it. This isn't something people are born with, this is something everyone can force themselves to train and get better at. You simply need to take very active note of everything in your surroundings, and force yourself to ask questions. You look at a tree. What kind of tree is it? What can you tell about the leaves? Is something carved in the bark? Is there some branch that looks different? You look at a billboard. What kind of design is on it? What might have gone through the head of the designer? Why is the logo the way that it is? What is the connection between the logo and the company that's being advertised? You look at a girl. What is she wearing? What made her decide to wear it? How is her facial expression? Etc. etc. It's a very tough exercise, training your curiosity, and I think it might come almost akin to a form of meditation

Meditation.
Don't stoop to drugs unless you feel it is necessary to prove to yourself the existence of the archetypal realms of the unconscious.

creepy-poster has it right, the human body is capable of being drastically altered simply by focusing on things intensely enough through stuff like gnostic concentration. try staring at your eyes in a mirror, unphased, no blinking, no moving, no thinking.

I didn't (still don't) have any issues with sleep. Also, I never drink or do drugs, and I don't have any family history of mental illness.

Strange. Then again, minor hallucinations do actually just come and go sometimes, it's just not commonly reported because it's not really a big deal.

I have them when I drive. Sometimes they freak me out when I see them run behind my car or peak out behind some cover. They watch me while I sleep and even appear in my games.

Any of you guys religious? What would you call yourself?

I'm Catholic but really enjoy reading up on spirituality and particularly Crowley. Thelema and Golden Dawn are just super fascinating to me.

>but why does it seem so important to you to focus on other people's religions rather than your own?
It seems to me that you do not believe that there is such a thing as improperly following a religion. I think you have subscribed to a particular heresy referred to as "Modernism".
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wjs7WfK7rQ
To summarise it: Every man is his own Pope. It is this notion, stemming at least partially from Protestantism, that it is the individual who ultimately determines what the Truth (of the Bible, in the case of Protestants) really is. I'm sure you've heard people say that phrase before: "I'm just speaking my truth". Previous heresies were people who really held that reality was a certain way but this belief was deemed incorrect. With the heresy of Modernism however, the very notion of an objective truth is done away with. Nobody can truly be right nor wrong.
This idea that Religion is merely something personal, I think, is ironically the death of Religion itself.

as much as I like the idea of discussing issues like this, you still haven't really explained why it matters what way the other anon practices his faith. It has no effect on you after all, he should be free to do so.

 No.67

Well firstly, I want to say that from the very beginning, my first post in this thread was No. 61. If you believe that post No. 61 was an attack on how anyone in this thread practises their religion, I believe you're going to need to explain that.
When I posted Post No.61, I was merely chiming in with Post No. 59 in that yes, yes there are Catholics who are really just claiming to be Catholic but, when questioned, reveal their views to be something along the lines of MTD. This was not an attack on anyone in this thread. It was me confirming an observed phenomenon. I don't believe Post No. 59 was an attack on anyone in this thread either.

Secondly, while I think one should be wise about when they choose to Evangelise and so I believe there are times where it would be okay to leave people alone in how they practise their religion, I don't believe it truly has no effect on me that I totally allow others to practise their religion. I believe, at the end of my life, God will judge me not just for what I did but for what I didn't do. Not speaking up when I should have will be held against me and so I cannot agree with that idea that I shouldn't attempt to bring others into the One True, Apostolic, Church. To clarify though: I made no attempt to do so in this thread.

 No.119

I wouldn't call myself particularly religious, though I won't deny the possibility of something being out there. I sometimes go to a catholic church and contribute by playing instruments.
Where religion plays out it's value imo is in those people who otherwise won't or can't think about complicated moral and philosophical questions in life.
The big secularization in the 1960s primarily affected lower income people in my eyes. Look at the urban black people and your typical white trash.
Before that time, religion would have played a big part in keeping families together and children with both of their parents.
I won't glamourize this time simply because it wasn't with how raising your kids worked and all, but at least they had two role models in their lives.
When this whole "sexual liberation" stuff came around, all the sudden single parenthood and "patchwork families" became a thing, with horrible consequences, especially for lower income and unemployed people.
Religion may be a boring and unnecessary barrier when you are a 20-something college student rebelling against your parents, but it becomes essential for social cohesion for other people.
This all is in reference to a new testament oriented christianity, but pretty much all modern mainstream religions include some form of family with a father and mother to care for their children.
