BECOMING ONE WITH THE MIND OF GOD
I was going to do a course called: RELIGION AND IMAGINATIVE LITERATURE
up at the campus at Nipissing University, but I didn't advertise enough and I got
only eight people who signed up, and four of them were nuns. The course was to be held in honour of Father Belyea, who gave a course by the same name at St. Michael's College, University of Toronto...oh, I'd say about thirty years ago.
I was going to take the class up into the bush and show them the need for the primitive gods. Since then I've been all over the place and everywhere I went I visited a shrine.
I saw a place on Easter Island that no one has ever talked about.
I spent hours outside the Bat Cave in Bali, where hundreds of thousands of bats come and go.
I saw them burn bodies on the steps above the holy Ganges River at Varanasi, oldest living city on earth. I also was shown the Temple of Love, but that is another story for another time,
if we have another time.
After visiting all those shrines, all I have to say is this:
"THE HOLIEST SHRINE OF ALL IS THE HUMAN HEART-MIND."
Walt Whitman would agree. So would Waldo Emerson.
Emerson said: "THERE IS ONE MIND COMMON TO ALL INDIVIDUAL MEN"
The foundation of Carl Jung`s work is this fact. HIS "Collective Unconscious" is built on this foundation. He was also
strongly influenced by "THE SEVEN SERMONS TO THE DEAD" by Basilides. This work was discovered at Nag Hammadi, and Jung got one of the codexes.
Let's not forget Walt Whitman. He's one of the few natural seers
we've had in the West. And let`s not forget the VISION PLANTS.
Without the VISION PLANTS, CHRIST CONSCIOUS NEVER WOULD HAVE
Walt says:"There was never more inception than there is now,
Nor any more youth or age than there is now;
And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
Nor any more heaven of hell than there is now."( Song of Myself)
Then he adds "I AND THIS MYSTERY HERE WE STAND." (Capitals mine)
What Walt is getting at throughout the waves and rhythms of his work
is exactly the same truth the early Christians meditated in order to see.
The problem is, as the Zen Buddhists very well know, it is impossible to describe the truth. How do you put a vision of GOD AND MAN UNIFIED IN ONE into words? Or realizing the Eternal Christ Consciousness within you
How do you describe the MOMENT of REALIZATION, the implosion of all things into darkness... and the knowledge that you know all there is to know
and yet you know nothing.
How do you figure out this paradox. You don`t.
All this writing is but the "finger pointing at the moon." It is not the moon itself.*
Only after searching and taking rationality to its dead end; then you stop and let a
HIGHER FACULTY faculty take over,
When there is silence everywhere, focus on a PARADOXICAL SAYING: "In the beginning was the Word." This is one such saying.
This is a good saying, because there's no way you can understand it intellectually. Let the silence reign, and FOCUS.
I like to call these sayings MINDSHOCKS, because their purpose is to break the EGGSHELL OF THE EGO. The Buddhists call this type of saying something else,
but they use them too
Rational, scholastic and phiiisophical discussions won`t take us there
to that place where we need to be in order to satisfy our souls.
Realization is the solution. Realization is the pathway Home.
Realization can be achieved without the aid of the plants.But there
is no need to make it more difficult than it has to be. I starved myself, and
that`ll get you to the same place, because your body will create
the vision on its own. But now that we know more about biochemistry,
we realize that DMT, made in the human body, give us our sense of
The sacred mushrooms are also a strong source of DMT, And I can
tell you one thing as a matter of historical fact - the early Christians were
eating a lot of sacred mushrooms. The Essenes were experts in healing
and herbs. Jesus Christ was an Essene. He came out of the
It looks as if he was their Teacher of Righteousness who
was crucified in 65 B.C. ** **cf: John Allegro.org
The MANNA God gave the Jews in the desert. That was the
sacred mushroom. It was food from the heaven, the proper food
"Before Christ came there was no proper food of man."
THE HOLY EUCHARIST WAS WINE AND THE SACRED MUSHROOM:
"EAT THIS, THIS IS MY BODY." THAT STATEMENT WAS LITERALLY TRUE!
Do you ever wonder why those words sound hollow in church?
It is because the words are false without the true sacramental food.
THIS USED TO BE ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE.
ONLY FOR THE FEW.
The church knows it. They have just kept the facts
hidden in order to monopolize money and power.
LIES! God, we`ve been told some whoppers!
And I used to be so angry! I`m re-writing this article.
The last time I wrote it I hid part of what I knew to be
I like to be whipped. So did Christians throughout
history. Many Christians whipped themselves. I like to cane others, too. That might be a tad sadistic and perverted.
So what! Call me a pervert. So what! I`ve been called worse.
But I don`t kneel and masturbate to a woman in the other
room behind one way glass as some priests do, and pretend
it never happened... that these urges do not exist.
I`m admitting my frailties. Big deal!
"Man is nowhere more frail than in his sex."
That`s a truth. You can quote me on that.
I`m telling you the truth where I am most frail.
AM I GOING TO LIE TO YOU ABOUT THE
PATH TO GOD?
No I am not.
The truth is not complicated. The truth is a
profound simplicity.... that`s what is difficult about
The truth is apparent all around us.
"The Kingdom is spread out upon the earth
and men see it not."
I was feeling depressed this evening. I felt defeated. Well, I feel
a lot better now. At least I`m not a liar at the moment.
Thank you for listening to me. Thank you for having the
courage to lay aside your prejudices - all you have been taught by the
bogus education system of our society.
To quote Terence McKenna: "Culture is not your friend."
And also let`s quote my pal Hunter Thompson:
"Madness is loss of your sense of humour."
Back to the earlier article: "BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM." This is a good egoshock/mindshock. Try to figure
this one out. And then don`t bother, don`t try. Mindshocks do not allow a
rational solution. That`s why focusing on them takes you closer to that pure land within you,
the original land where you have always been.
Walt says: "Has anyone supposed it lucky to be born?
I hasten to inform him or her it is just as lucky to die, and I know it.
"I pass death with the dying and birth with the new-washed babe
....and am not contained between my hat and boots "
Later he says: "Who need be afraid of the merge", and adds
later still: "....I come again and again."
"I have come well and I will go well."
There is no one reading this who has not been here before. I am not certain,
but I suspect the fact that we have many lives - this doctrine is one of the
many "heresies" that was nixxed at the Council of Nicea.
WE I SAY WE`VE BEEN LIED TO, I MEAN WE`VE REALLY BEEN LIED TO!
Just imagine what our lives would have been like, and would be like now,
if the path had not been hidden, twisted and distorted for us
so many centuries ago. Two thousand years!
And the real doctrine is unburied now. It re-emerges now, after Nag Hammadi
" I SHALL BE AS HE IS
AND HE SHALL BE ME"
and the hidden things shall be revealed to him.
"He who understands the explanation of these words will not taste death."
From "The Sophia of Jesus Christ": "The Saviour"..."He is eternal,
having no birth; for everyone who has birth will perish.
He is unbegotten, having no beginning; for everyone who has a beginning has an end."
"The beginningless Father who beholds himself within
(as with) a mirror. He was revealed, resembling himself."
Everyone who does `sitting` eventually finds the mirror within.
The Zen Buddhists speak of cleaning the mirror of the mind. Through meditation you come to a place where your soul is mirrored by the Mind of the the One Who Is Creating us. It is a holy place. If I understand correctly this is the place the early Christians call, "the Bridal Chamber." It is also said to be a mirrored place.
EVERYONE WHO DRINKS THE WATERS I SPEAK FROM MY MOUTH
SHALL BECOME AS I AM
AND I SHALL BE HE
AND THE HIDDEN THINGS SHALL BE REVEALED TO HIM. (Gospel of Thomas)
This is the heart of the REAL GOSPELS, THE REDISCOVERED GOSPELS,
THE ONES THAT WERE BURIED FOR 2000 YEARS.
Have you heard this saying in your churches? Oh, I forgot, no one really goes
to church anymore... I wonder why.
The EUCHARIST has been adulterated.
Of course, the mirror does not exist; it's just a metaphor for something that cannot be expressed in words.

NOTE: Please forgive me for the excessively serious tone I was adopting
in this article, before I came clean and edited it.
I really hate hate the preachy tone - but the history of what has happened to many wonderful people who walked the walk,not just talk the talk... well,
I was finding it depressing.
But there are great stories as well - the poets, the mystics, the wacky fools on the hill, ya gotta love em. Hildegarde of Bingen, Meister Eckhart, St. John of the Cross, Walt Whitman, Father Belyea, Northrop Frye, Jay Macpherson ( who wrote Job daughters)
And all the ordinary heroes I don`t know.
Those who laboured to present to the rest of us the true nature of our heritage - that there is more here than meets the eye ---that we are not confined by the lies that we have been told.
These fools are trying to tell us what`s what! And how the fuck should they know...these safe fat comfortable rich churchmen and politicians - they never stepped out beyond the village gates the way the heroic mystics and poets and ordinary people who couldn`t read or write
did. The people knew horseshit when they heard it.
Now that I think of it we`re O.K. And we`ve probably always
been OK... All we needed was a few drinks of alcohol - AND THANK GOD FOR THAT! --- and the VISION PLANTS, God-given herb and the
Without the symbiotic relationship humanity formed with
these beings growing out of the soil, this consciousness
that is aiding us in the earth all around us, maybe then we could have been fooled forever by the GREEDHEADS, AND THE LIARS AND THE GRASPERS AFTER POWER.
But we had help, and we weren`t fooled forever... and don`t think those buggers (appropriate word) in the Vatican don`t know about the mushrooms - early Christian art is full of mushrooms - just like Fairy Tales.
One of my heroes is John Marco Allegro. Check that beautiful man out! Google him! He`s right here.
He was an expert in language. He was hired to translate the Dead Sea Scrolls.... and he found way too many mush rooms, mushroom puns. The New Testament is full of them, he says. And I believe every damn thing the man says now!
Everybody else lied... no one else did their job... not in ten years,
the way John did. He wrote a book called, "The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross", which was out of print for a while - no accident. See if you can find the endnotes at the end of the book where he proves his thesis.
He was discredited for 30 years! Thirty years! That`s a long time in a man`s life. If you`re looking for a Christian martyr in recent days,
look at the life of John Marco Allegro.
He has been totally vindicated, by the way, by a Russian scientist among other researchers. He went back to the root words in the Sumerian! Allegro worked things out all right.
By the way, check out gnosticmedia.com. Jan Werner (sp?) is doing some fine work, too. And he affirms John Allegro`s work.
As an aside, I met John Allegro at the museum in Toronto. He was giving a lecture. He was a scholar. He wasn`t obsessed. He had no interest in talking about mushrooms.
I`ve got one question for you. What is it about FACT that is too terrible for the population at large to hear? WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE BALD NATURE OF REALITY THAT SCARES THE SHIT OUT THESE
Maybe it`s not reality that scares these fools in the church and government. Maybe they`re just frightened we`ll find out how they`ve been
robbing us! The last thing they want "we, the people" to have is clear vision.
The sacred plants are illegal, you want to know why?
Have you ever smoked a big one and watched someone being phony. It`s impossible not to spot!
That`s the last thing politicians want.
THE VISION PLANTS ARE ILLEGAL BECAUSE
THEY MAKE YOU SEE.
