There is a strange tipping point in the non dualistic path that is obvious when its crossed. Its when the ideas of non duality goes from being a benefit to the person to destroying them.
One of the strangest question I can be asked is “did this help you?”.
No, lol, It didn’t help me, matter of fact it caused chaos and destroyed my life.
There was a point where the exposure to the truth actually helped me, where it showed me how to view my feelings instead of identifying with them. I found this to be extremely helpful. It made me get my anxiety under control, and better deal with day to day life. It didn’t fix my problems, it made my problems better. In essence it made me a better problem.
If I had stopped there everything would have been fine, its when I pushed to understand it more. At some point during the process I seen what was coming, and the pointing to the truth finally sunk in. At that point I went absolutely insane. .
The realization that non duality is pointing directly to my own oblivion went from a philosophical idea to a very real threat. This is the key point that is missed, and my warning to others, if you follow the path to its conclusion it will destroy you.
That isn’t a esoteric idea, its not a philosophical one, the results of the non dualistic path is your complete destruction. The gates of enlightenment are not sunshine and kittens they are the death of who you are, they rip apart your life and strip away everything that isn’t real. It is not what you want, and it is not what you are looking for.
You wont find love and fulfillment, you wont find enlightenment and eternal happiness at the gates, you will watch yourself be shredded and caste into the fires to burn.
Yet i could not look away, I was being drawn to my destruction faster and faster. This is the fate of anyone who sees the truth. Be very carful how closely you look at truth, to keep yourself safe, only look out of the corner of your eye. Once the first needle of truth makes it in, your fate is sealed, its an unstoppable process.
So my advice is very simple, unless you are suffering to the point that you must find peace no matter what the cost…. turn away. Go meditate and find your center, go play with crystals, go find your energy or play with the secret because what is waiting for you at the gates is death.
Its not being dramatic, and its not reverse psychology. Once these gates are passed through there is no more searching and no more questions.
Those who have seen the gates but not passed through them become amazing teachers. They could see what happens on the other side, and stopped. So they gather people around them and teach them hope, and peace because its comforting. For the individual this is the best outcome.
To make your life better, stop when you see the fragrance that truth gives off, but dont look directly at it. The truth is like the sun, the benefits of it are amazing. To stare directly at it is blinding, and to touch it is death.
The truth is not comforting, its earth shattering.
The truth is this is nothing you want, but it is true. Enlightenment is not a peaceful process, its a very violent process that you can never obtain. Enlightenment is not for you, because you will not survive it. So choose carefully, here on the other side of the gates there is no suffering, because in the flames of truth you will burn.
