Why is there so much suffering in the world?

Hello my dear friends. I'm confused. I was watching the trailer of a documentary entitled "Earthlings." http://www.earthlings.com/ The current treatment of animals disgusts me to no end. Other similar treatments are done to humans as well. I simply don't understand why "God/Source" allows such a deg...

Re: Psychedelics

Are you implying that there is different awareness's, one that we are in now and a higher one that we are in when on drugs? words are limited, and thus the communication gap to be able to effectively translate an experience. i agree that the consciousness remains the same...silence does not change....

Re: Psychedelics

This is only a glimpse that does not last. You may recognize the “Truth” — but after the trip, it remains only as a memory...Although you may temporarily reproduce an awakened state with hallucinogenic drugs, in order to “live it” moment-to-moment in everyday life, most of us must follow a path of ...

Re: Psychedelics

This i why i haven't tried it so far... peace :) it doesn't matter if it is truer or not. how do you know that anything in this world is any truer? you don't, and you can't. It is simply fo...

Re: Psychedelics

I dont think I liked it and it messed me up for a while afterward (now I am ever so grateful for it because it put me on this spiritual path and I'm now more grounded than I've evr been). While I was tripping I clearly saw that I wasn't whole, it was scary... like there was a division in me, I felt...

Psychedelics

Re: Couldn't it all be an illusion?

You are still trying to say some person is real. by "real person" i mean a "conscious person" who can think for himself. would you describe a schizophrenic's "imaginary" friend as "conscious"? There is no "real person" versus a "hallucination" then what is the difference between you (who can think ...

Re: Couldn't it all be an illusion?

thank you eric, your answer has cleared things up a bit. but let me ask you this same question from a different aspect. if a schizophrenic sacrifices his life for someone who he thinks is real, would that really be helping anyone? the schizophrenic could have lived to serve his own life purpose of b...

Couldn't it all be an illusion?
