There is one truth that nobody can debate, and that is the fact that we physically die at some point in the future. Many forget this fact of life and dedicate great amounts of time and energy towards icons, personalities, and ideas that are unconnected to their own day-to-day lives, and do not matter in the grand scheme of things.
The immersion of oneself into the sleazy World of celebrities are ways in which cultures and societies divert their thoughts away from the things in life that matter the most; things which directly affect you and make lasting impressions upon your being.
By creating illusory focus points for the masses to lock their Awareness into, culture becomes a hindrance to your own personal self-growth and self-actualization.
Think about the massive quantities of time that you spend on things that have no direct connection to your life. All that time could have been dedicated to something more constructive or positive in your actual, experiential existence.
Our culture is an artificially-created box in which you are bombarded by an endless number of things only to entice you into giving away massive amounts of your Consciousness to trivialities.
This programming is so intense and so strong that it has become the most overriding factor of your life. Yet, in the end, it has nothing to do with waking reality.
It’s function, instead, is to color your perspective of that reality, creating an illusory World of unconsciously implanted values and judgements. Culture does indeed appear to be a mass hallucination.
When you dissolve the boundaries that divide and separate you from others, you will have the ability to transform your World into one of serenity, tranquility, and peace.
Only by complete boundary dissolution can you revert to a more pure form of experiential existence, where the focus becomes again the growth of your Self and the growth of others.
The purpose of boundary dissolution is to do away with these falsehoods that separate humanity rather than unite it. Societal boundaries and other boundaries based on the selfish nature of the Ego is the cause of many of Society’s ills and problems.
You can try for yourself: instead of giving into the aspects of culture that are unhelpful in shifting your Consciousness to a higher level, hold the idea of oneness within your mind and immerse yourself in things that unite, rather than divide.
By doing away with the constructs that separate you from others (creating hostility, hatred and animosity along the way) you are letting go of the fear that hinders you from taking actions in alignment with the idea of unity, and you will be freed from the grip of the Ego.
We are all, to some degree, in time, and we are all to some degree in eternity. And to the degree that we are in eternity we behave correctly and have right activity and right perception, and these psychedelics enhance this involvement with the totality of everything.
That’s why it is not naive to suggest that issues like the nuclear gridlock and all these other terminal problems that we have could be overcome if people would, by any means, try to come into attunement with the notion of unity in time and space of the species and the planet and the solar system, and I think that this is the, the evolving, core idea which will either save us, or the absence of its evolution will be our ruin.
The idea of unity and interrelatedness.
