I wonder what thoughts you guys have around this. Have you felt the same, did it deepen into something else or stabilize? I'm curious.
Watch and see what is stable and what isn't. I think it becomes clear that the only thing that remains is the seeing, feeling, knowing of, as it appears in the present. There is no actual knowing of, when it is of what has come and has just as quickly gone.
When grounding is sensed, what is it that is grounded?
Seeing that you aren't what you think you are is like death, but the death is all in your head and based on fear.
Can it be seen it is in the attachment to what we think we are where this virtual dying comes from? What we think we are has none but a virtual life. What we think we are is actually always in constant change, even if very subtle at times. At other times we will reform it in a minute if it suits the situation that the idea of what we think we are seemingly finds itself in. If we keep our seeing of it honest, has it ever been stable? Has the seeing not been there through it all?
We string bits of remembered ideas of what has been seen in together into our stories. We are what sees, which is not personal, being here before the first version of a personal story was knit together into personal mind's narrative. The narrative is what we, as a personally identified thinker, thinks we are. Once seen through, we can simply continue to watch it from the stable, impersonal seeing. If judgments arise, they will be of a personal nature, a tension in comparison to an idealized story. Even this will happen within an impersonal seeing, the isness, where we always have the choice of identifying or not. Identity needs a past and story. The seeing needs only being present.
Since what is sometimes impersonally seen on the mushrooms can be used to question what is seen in the sober state, can we see the invitation inherent in what the mushrooms show us? In the realization of the true, nothing can be lost except what is false.
