The weird self realization trip

1 year, 7 months ago

I’m sure a lot of you have gone through this. It might have happened to you like it did to me, one day you were fixing your hair looking at yourself in the mirror and then this strange feeling drops into you. It takes holds of you being but you don’t really know what it means. You start looking at your physical self and in a way realizing. This is the capsule I’m in. This is how the outside world perceives me, or so I think. Now that I’m older I can recognize what would happen back then. If it’s happening to you, then you’re probably on the right track.

Yes, definitely.

You can induce this feeling by meditating for 30-60 minutes, and then, directly afterwards, intently/intensely staring at yourself in the mirror. Initially, the mind might label the experience as an ‘out-of-body’ experience, but in fact it’s more than than. It’s an ‘out-of-phenomenal-reality-altogether’-experience. You realize that who/what you are is utterly and inexplicably (to the space-and-time mediated or mediating mind) beyond any form or shape. That you see, but cannot be seen, because you are not an object (of perception). This can reveal, in a glimpse, the immediate and undeniable empty nature of everything and everyone, the inward dimension that is unimaginable and irrevocably mysterious.

Kant called this the noumenal.
