      Solipsism - Universal Mind

      Anyone want to discuss this?

      Out of every spiritual/metaphysical/religious scripture or text I've read, every psychedelic drug experience I've read, and every experience I've had , this philosophical idea and theory of existence makes the most logical sense to me..and honestly...it scares the shit out of me

      How can this idea not scare the shit out of somebody. I wanted to discuss this because I feel like I'm getting closer to this state of oneness, I've had a glimpse of what i believe is this state once during sleep. The feeling of being connected to everything and feeling a bliss ....This oneness being aware in the state of deep sleep or dreamless sleep

      I can sometimes feel the bliss subtly, basically during conscious breathing and mediation but I don't want to go all the way..I hate the idea that there is only one mind and I'm the only one that exists. This oneness may feel extremely good but it sort of makes life seem pointless.

      How can you enjoy this illusion if you know it's not real, I mean you could always forget that it is an illusion, but when you actually think about the idea of one mind experiencing itself subjectively it's depressing really

      I've read this oneness is "home" but I'm not sure if I would want to be alone, I'd rather not exist at all if that makes any sense

      By the way I'm not suicidal or anything just thinking if becoming all the way self-aware is worth it. I still enjoy this illusion of life, I've found beauty in the most simplest of things now that I did not before

      I guess I still cling to the personality/ego, its kind of hard to imagine that gone completely and only being aware of supreme bliss and oneness

      Many things must be unlearned in order to harmonize your awareness with the reality of existence rather than simply understand it cognitively.

      We can imagine a universe with no end, but can you imagine a universe with no beginning? If the past is truly infinite then every manifestation has already occurred somewhere at some time and absolutely no mark can be made that hasn't been made infinite times before and will occur infinite times again. This thought truly makes life appear pointless if you cling to our current fabrication of time. To only way to escape this feeling is to escape the aspect of time as a whole.

      Keep this in mind. Viewing the universal mind from the vantage point of a lonely ego/parasite is painful because the two do not compute. The ego exists only in the past and future, in understanding the past and planning for the future. The past and future do not actually exist. Only the present. In the present, we are constantly observing the manifestation of life. The purpose of life is infinite potential seeking manifestation. It does not need a purpose. Life lives for the sake of the beauty, wonder and captivation that it creates. The observer exists so this manifestation can be witnessed.

      Past and Future is ego and personality, the deep present moment is oneness...basically your personality/ego won't exist if your in the present moment

      This is what I experience, in the present it's peaceful..there's really no ego, but the personality should also be enjoyed, passion should also be enjoyed...and for the latter you need past/future/ego...I know you can't fully live in this world without an ego at all, so maybe there needs to be a balance between the two... equilibrium

      A lot of spiritual teachers preach to live fully in the present moment 24/7.....Should deep present moment awareness only be used when you need to access creative states and for mental, physical, and emotional healing

      Reminds me of this thread I made http://www.dreamviews.com/f22/balanc...reness-116740/

      The conclusion I've come to is to be Action oriented rather than Result oriented. The Result is always out of your grasp, and its the parasite that we mistake for ourselves which cannot exist in the moment because it's so caught up in what it can stand to gain or lose.

      But to a man belongs only his actions and never the fruit of them.
