Enlightenment and Depersonalization/Derealization
It seems to me that there are many similarities (albeit some differences as well) between these two phenomena. One is considered the ultimate state of consciousness, another is considered a mental illness of sorts.
I had depersonalization a few years ago and I have to admit that some of what I have experienced in the last year resembles it. Enlightenment is like a choice to de-personalize one’s self, to step away from what one isn’t. It is happy, calm, and beautiful, and one does it very gradually over time and slowly learns more and more about what one’s true nature is, about what is real and what is illusion. One learns to seperate his or herself from one’s thoughts and from physical reality in a positive way. The ultimate joy comes from this.
Depersonalization is like experiencing side effects of enlightenment when one isn’t ready for it yet. It’s taking away everything that someone isn’t before they are ready to understand or learn that it isn’t who they are. It takes away everything that they thought was meaningful before they are ready to learn that it isn’t in fact meaningful in the way they thought it was. It shows them that nothing that they thought was real is actually real. It strips them of their personal identity, of their idea of “Self” and their idea of reality. This leads to depression obviously. Most people can’t handle the idea of external reality being an illusion, or of their whole identity being taken away.
Now this isn’t necessarily true, it’s just a thought I had. Do you think depersonalization is like experiencing side effects of enlightenment before one is ready to experience them? For example I experienced depersonalization for several months because of dxm and ketamine use. It was overall unpleasent, though at times I enjoyed the trippiness of it. I was also fairly depressed in this time because I couldn’t come to terms with leaving my whole identity and notion of “reality” behind.
Obviously there are parts of enlightenment that have nothing to do with depersonalization and vice versa, and there are major differences between the two when it comes down to it.
Just for the record, “Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality in one’s sense of self, while derealization is unreality of the outside world”.
Derealization or derealisation (sometimes abbreviated as DR) is an alteration in the perception or experience of the external world so that it seems unreal.
Former Karma and Immediate Karma
Could you speak to us some more about the importance of cleansing and purging our karma in relation to the transition that is now very near?
“Dear Children of the Light, you are in the transition! It will not take place tomorrow or the day after, or in one, ten, twenty or a hundred years! You are living it every day!
What does transition and transformation mean? That you are transiting towards another state of consciousness, towards another state of being.
The question of karma is important.
A large part of the karma has remained in the old cycle that is to say that by the work of Love that has been done by many groups, by beings such as us and many others who have not made contact with you, part of the karma of humanity has been purified. We say a part because what is karma?
There is former karma, that which comes from all of your former lives. This has been purified; has been consumed in the Love emanating from the hearts of men and in the Love that we have offered you.
That in which we absolutely cannot intervene is what we call ‘the law of cause and effect’ that applies to everyday life.
You must understand well that based on the actions that you commit, there are reactions. There can be positive actions and positive reactions, just as there can be negative actions and negative reactions!
At this time, karma is being applied constantly day by day! If you go against what you are becoming, you will create the law of cause and effect that you will be forced to cleanse almost immediately or at least in the days and months to come.
Don’t worry anymore about former karma! With the masters of Karma, it has been decided that what you call ‘faults’ and that we call mistakes must be cleansed, and no longer exist.
However, you have much work to do with the law of cause and effect on a daily basis with your behaviors, your thoughts, your words and your actions. Be very attentive! You will very quickly become aware of this karmic law of cause and effect that will be applied almost instantaneously in relation to your behavior.
Each of you is walking on the path of this immense transformation! Each of you has begun to take this path! There are a thousand and one paths that lead to the Light; it is up to each one of you to find his own path and to avoid encumbering it due to the law of cause and effect that will necessarily slow you down because the more you advance the more you will be obligated to integrate purity, wisdom and Love.”
