Realization of attraction, through loss of consciousness

3 years, 6 months ago

If you act on ‘impulse’ or do something "out-of-character", in another consciousness, does it coincide with an ‘out of body expirience? Can someone please explain to me the difference between "Liquid Courage" and acting out your potential, subconscious feelings; when you are flat-out, blacked out, drunk, in an entirely different conciousness? If you have come to a realization of how you feel towards someone by your actions that you had very little control of, and were sexually suggestive/aggressive(but it didn’t lead elsewhere), how do you know if they are legitimate feelings or just an attachment of some sort? Say you and the other person have come to an agreement: Drunk actions are sober thoughts.

I don’t think this is necessarily true. I have kissed someone while blackout drunk and said “WTF” in the morning. However, I’ve grabbed someone’s hand while tipsy that I had a huge subconscious attraction to. It all depends. How you feel about them while sober definitely is a better indicator than what you said or did while drunk. God knows I’ve said a lot of stupid shit while drinking that I didn’t mean.

I am of the opinion one cannot do contrary to their own character. People do what they do – how can they argue that it wasn’t them. It’s hard to swallow that whatever influence “made them do it”. In the end it was still their choice. Being intoxicated seems to lessen inhibitions – OUTSTANDING! We need a bit less fear in the world; we only live once. I’m also of the opinion that drunk people do, what sober people think about. But of course, some people’s character isn’t too sweet. All the better, if you see someone drunk and raging, you’ll understand them a bit better – whether they’re pinning up aggression, or just someone you want to avoid (or maybe they suffered from a recent loss and don’t know how to deal). ALSO, I don’t think people are unconscious when they’re black out drunk (unless they’re literally passed out). If you’re still making decisions, they were your decisions – just so happens, sometimes, you may not be able to remember them.

“Out of character” usually refers to doing something which you usally do not, ie challenging the homeostasis of your ego. People have different definitions of character though. To me, character means your core self, that which is not made up of thoughts or habits but simply was there from birth.

So, to me, there is no acting out of character, other than acting as a character other than yourself. Which is ironically what 99% of people do, they’re never themselves.

Sometimes you act in unpredictable, irrational ways, sober or not, usually on some emotional/intuitive whim. This I would say is the deepest act of true character you could ever commit. When you do act on emotional whims, yes you are tapping into a different existence, that of your “higher mind” or whatever you want to call it. This is where all emotions come from, and this thing knows what you are and what you want and how to manifest that. When you start experiencing this for real, wow, you won’t believe it, it really must be a different consciousness. I wouldn’t say it’s an out of body experience though, it’s more like a “watching yourself from within” experience, kind of like when you’re stoned and feel like you’re watching yourself from somewhere behind your eyes.
