All is One, and One is All

I don’t know if anyone still reads my blog, I haven’t updated for a while. But if you’re one of my older readers, you probably remember my atheism posts. For over 10 years now, I was an atheist. For the last 4-5 years, I was one of these Reddit-style atheists too, getting easily upset with organized religion and its followers.

I’m no longer an atheist (at least, not with the common definition of the word).

And no, I’m not religious either (again, with the common definition of the word). I still despise organized religion as much as I always have. And neither I’m an agnostic.

I simply feel enlightened. I guess, if you had to categorize me, you’d probably call me “spiritual”, but even that word doesn’t truly capture my state of thought.

I usually philosophize a lot during the day, and it was for a long time now that I had decided that the meaning of life is simply to “experience”. Nothing more or less than that, but experience with the full definition of the word (meaning, both good and bad experiences — every possible combination).

But it wasn’t until recently that was I able to put this realization in context.

I realized that there has only being a single religion in the planet: mysticism. If you take the explanation of “what is” from all major mystical religions (from Kabbalah, to Theosophy, to Buddhism, to Shamanism, to Eleusinian Mysteries etc), these mystical religions have all claimed that “God” is YOU.

“God” is all there is (if you want to call this “God”). Everything around us, is God, and it’s alive! From human beings, to plants, to rocks, to planets, to galaxies. All matter and anti-matter in this Universe and other Universes, is part of God.

All is One, and One is All there is. It’s infinite in all directions.

We are droplets of God’s existence. We are grains in the sand. But as insignificant as a grain of sand is, the more powerful it is when it realizes that it’s made of Love. This knowledge is Freedom!

Why do we exist? To experience. You see, “all there is”, is lonely. Every possible combination, must be experienced, in several planes of existence, each with its own rules. We experience on its behalf. There is no “Good” and “Evil”. There just IS.

God is made of unconditional love and we can tap-in to it when we let go of our ego. Our separateness is artificial, but it’s also needed, in order to function in this physical plane of existence. The problem is that we have emphasized in our separateness (individualism), and that separateness is all more pronounced today than it was 100 or 10,000 years ago. We lost our way.

Organized religions (“pop religions” as I call them) have existed only for one reason alone: control of their subjects. The Truth (and all the possible combinations of Truth that you might discover yourself) doesn’t need priests, for you are your own God. If you can’t realize your true Nature and you need others to sell you dogma, you’re ending up more separate and more enslaved than you could ever be. No, don’t take this blog post as dogma either, learn the truth yourself.

As to how to realize the Truth by yourself, there are various methods. Buddhism has some cool tricks, e.g. meditation, fasting, African tribes have drumming and dance, Amazonian tribes have Ayahuasca. The fastest way to witness enlightenment in the West is via illegally-obtained tryptamines (particularly DMT, although mushrooms, mescalin, LSD have their uses too). That’s right, these substances that our confused legal system calls “dangerous drugs”. They’re dangerous only to the System, for they can show you how SILLY and ARTIFICIAL culture, political systems, truly are. I’ve never felt more prosecuted in my life for not being allowed to experience my own consciousness.

But make no mistake. Tryptamines will only show you how things really are. What you do from then on, and how you change your life to line up yourself with Harmony, is the difficult part. “Knowing” is only the beginning. It barely gets you to a baseline.

UPDATE: Just found these two videos online, completely randomly. That’s exactly what I’m talking about. It’s just that the guy on these two videos can definitely say it better than I ever could express myself.

I’m still reading your blog 😉
Nice post, while i keep being atheist myself i can understand your point of view.
I agree about how absurd are culture and political system. It’s just our heritage not evolving as quickly as many other things.
Regarding God, Harmony and some other concepts… well probably i can’t share your thoughts probably because we don’t have a common definition for them.
About drugs: They just modify the brain balance and correct operation. Perhaps thats a way for some narrow minds to change their point of view, opening it a little bit, but they are dangerous in terms of health. They do not worth it.
Glad to see you writing here again.
Best regards.

No, they expand the operation. “Correct” operation is a very oppressive notion. What tryptamines do is to remove the conductor from the orchestra. They set the brain free.

> “they are dangerous in terms of health. They do not worth it.”

This is not the case. Do some research on DMT. There’s more danger with alcohol or caffeine than there is with psychedelics, WHEN they’re used responsibly (set, setting, sitter). They’re not addictive, for one. People put psychedelics on the same bag with the real harmful drugs (e.g. cocaine, heroin, meth), but they’re not. DMT in particular, is produced by our own brain (that’s why Buddhist monks can activate it, after years of meditation).

Again, do your own research. Don’t believe the dogma of the government that “all drugs are bad”. The truth will set you free. The truth that YOU will find, not the one that was indoctrinated in you by the System.

Ok, i will do a research.
In any case i am a biologist. All drugs have a similar way of operation. They resemble some natural molecule on the brain. Neuropeptides, endorphines… Substitutes them, and the communications among neurones are altered. No one can think better, or have an improved perception under that circumstances. Perhaps some kind of new imagination could raise, but just the same that using a magneto over the screen on an old tv. The images are strange and different from the original one, but definitely not expanded ones.

Thanks for the post, Eugenia, as always it’s so honest and open! And with relation to your position–do you have anything to elaborate on death? To me it feels so…unfair to “just die” and loose all the memories and experience; do you consider it plausible that something might persist after our physical death?
As for DMT–unfortunately people cannot/don’t want to control themselves and the state won’t either take a responsibility for setting a proper and safe environment for psychedelics practices…

Shade, this PDF might explain a few things. I don’t agree with it about re-living the exact same life over and over (I believe it varies), but other than that, it’s right on the money.

I always check your blog daily and was initially worried about the lack of updates but today i checked and was so excited to see both your posts from this week!

I first started following you as i saw you pop up on paleohacks quite a few times with acne issues then from there found your website and experienced similar ‘obstacles’ you had faced there.

Your recent 2 posts made me excited yet happy as I have recently only a month ago was reading into psychedelics and basically agree with everything said 🙂 and i call myself spiritual as well as i left my organized religion a couple years ago for enlightenment.

Keep up the good work, really enjoying your posts and especially since there is someone out there who is similar!

Good Luck!

Thanks Eugenia, good interesting stuff. As someone who has spent nearly 30 years doing meditation and other practices exploring in this area you are on the right track, imo. keep the blog going and all the best to you.
