    If you became one with that, then how would you know you are not, you just 'are', right? So maybe you can't go back because it would mean to take a step back, you are still aware of it and you got used to the feeling so that it doesn't look external anymore, but it's part of you, you are this person who have merged into that particular awareness, so you still see these things, it's just that it's your new personal 'normal'

    Don't know if any of that makes any sense but i kind of think that's what happened
    It actually makes the perfect sense, I would probably describe my experience as kenshō. I became the world, I was one with it, not a separate being and that's bliss. It's been several years now, but I still remember the feeling. I have not experienced it since even though I've had other kind of mystical experiences and peaceful states too through meditation and other avenues. I think Samadhi is something more profound, also you can't induce it with any substances, no matter how magical they might be.

    The realization of Atman.

    (...) I am of the nature of consciousness.
    I am made of consciousness and bliss.
    I am nondual, pure in form, absolute knowledge, absolute love.
    I am changeless, devoid of desire or anger, I am detached.
    I am One Essence, unlimitedness, utter consciousness.
    I am boundless Bliss, existence and transcendent Bliss.
    I am the Atman, that revels in itself.
    I am the Sacchidananda that is eternal, enlightened and pure.

    ~  Tejobindu Upanishad

    Yes kenshō!

    I remember this: Once you see, you can't unsee, once you are, you can't become undone, you can only walk forward

    You are remembering the first day you 'became', but you may have forgotten to look at yourself from then on, it's still you, but the new you

    So yes, you are, so you can't go back, you still can 'see' so it never really went away, it's on your mind and soul. You can feel it, right? It's imposible to get rid of it, it just doesn't feel the same because it has become you, and you became 'it'

    Closer to Nirvana, I bet you are now... *Yoda <3

    Excellent, Wind. I haven't seen this before. I always thought there was a lot of wisdom in Star Wars.

    George Lucas certainly was inspired by Joseph Campbell and Eastern teachings.

    What was it Poe said? He'd spent most of his life insane, peppered by horrible bouts of sanity.


    At the end: "I'm terribly puzzled about the way people go out of their way to disenjoy themselves."

    So true. And they also go out of their way to stop others from being happy. It's nuts.
