MINDFULNESS ALERT. You can reach your higher state of being without the construct of religion. It's called looking within...where your soul resides. We are more than the physical. These things we travel around in are just vehicles for the infinite part of us, the droplets we are in the ocean of sentience, which many call God. Once you shut off all the physical stuff by quieting the mind, that's when you can access the bliss of the infinite, the nameless. Human beings like to compartmentalize stuff, but how can you compartmentalize something that is endless, boundless, measureless, infinite? You can't hold on to powder in your hand any more than you can "God." Just be silent. That's how you get a hold of it. One good way to get there...go out while it's still warm to the woods...far away from the noise of the towns....sit out in the field or an open space with all the trees and close your eyes. Think of nothing. Just listen to the breezes. The nothingness is where IT is. The nameless. The infinite. This is just unfettered truth.
Be cool, be nobody's fool and don't dismiss the bliss.
