QUESTION: Masters, I strive for Spiritual balance and loss of ego. With the use of psychedelics I have experienced fleeting moments of a higher sense of being. I strive to achieve that state of consciousness but I understand that the journey is far more important than the actual achievement. How do I go about becoming a Master of Self and take full control over my physical vessel so I can be of most assistance to those I Love and be a channel for the Universal Energy? ~Juan, USA
ANSWER: True spiritual living can only come when the ego is tamed and put in a cage. Ego is the judgment aspect of society. One byproduct of psychedelics and other drugs is the loss of concern for the beliefs of others, particularly the judgment phase, while the uninhibited consciousness is freed of all fears and doubts. This appears to duplicate the elevated enlightened state one may work to achieve.
The soul comes to Earth to learn lessons, which appear as negative doubts and fears. It is the soul’s intention to understand these demons by facing them, going into their causes, and, while understanding them, turning them into positive experiences and wisdom.
The journey to be successful and repeatable must be done step by step. You have to face each negative challenge, go inside to find what it is attached to, and then, using your freedom of choice, replace it with its positive opposite. Under drugs, all you do is banish the challenges’ existence until you become sober again, and then they are still facing and taunting you.
When you have removed all the negativity, you will be no longer be faced with judgments that require ego. Your only job then is to evaluate a situation and see if it is something you can learn from while never declaring anything right or wrong. This journey is one of modifying your life as you go through the process of finding and changing all the judgmental situations.
Each time you remove negative energy, it is replaced with positive, unconditional, universal love energy. When you have replaced all the negativity, you have mastered this physical life.
