The Liminalist # 142: Between a Rock & a Hard Place (Chronicles of a False Awakening, Part 2)

Part two of the Icarus Story (Chronicles of a False Awakening), Jasun explores his past, on hitting a wall, a secret chamber, a liminal space, the shifting sands of identification, an epic time, what a magician does, a reversion to type, the myth of Narcissus, animating a hungry ghost, the godhead speaks, falling under the spell of the One, riding the psychedelic wave, what’s the value of visions, movies of the mind, working on a jigsaw puzzle, conceiving The God Game, life and death, a gift from the id, there in the tone of voice, identifying the transmission, the synchromystical tunnel, an under layer of violence, emerging wrath, magnifying a collective delusion, taking heaven by storm,  one mistaken idea, a bad seed, the movie shaman, psychedelic agenda, false visions from the Culture God, Hideous Insidious, Wangus on the penis, body problems, the twinkle of humor, a fragment of the whole, how the body expels the splinter, seduced by the idea of uniqueness, remembering the other self, when the id takes over, a secret identity, rejecting Clark Kent, living an epic life, caught in a trap, man of the people, the difference between being the One and becoming whole, an acid trip that never ends, psychedelics & stress, destroy the schmuck, a ruthless guru, a reality tunnel, a doomed mission of soul rescue.

    I truly appreciate you sharing this Jasun. This podcast really helped me understand what you were relating. The first one seemed to go over my head.

    after listening to PT. 2, I’ve realized that I can identify with much of what your saying. I believe that you are on the right track in attaining your goals.

        After listening to the 1st part again, I realized that part of what was “going over my head” was becoming more conscious of the fact that I possibly shared some of the same process you did. Meaning, my last comment said that I “identify” with your story. But, some of the process you experienced may be the same.

        Besides getting a bit lost with some of the analogy you used and your examples of books you read that I didn’t, I believe some of the things that went over my head was actually me not being more conscious of the finer details of some of my own personal experience.

          somewhat tantalizing… i guess you are referring to the gap between archetypal experiences or descriptions and personal? Does your disconnect relate to your Catholicism, perhaps?

            Yes, I would agree you described the gap between personal and archetypal experience as correct.

            Ha ha!!! I think the disconnect relates mostly to ptsd and sheer terror on my part! I’m laughing but, I believe it to be true.

            Some things are so scary and inconceivable for some of us, we block it out and it takes time for it to come back.

    I remember you saying on the way back from the heath, maybe we were said that you feel bad every time a baby/ soul is introduced into this it is a burden ..but an overall burden including the earth itself having this overload .
