Titre aguicheur mais trop psychedelique pour moi malgré mon gout et interêt pour le Bardo Thodol. Je n ai pas réussi à le finir...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Re: Total Hype (not!) 25 décembre 2003
Par erasure head - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I would like to clear up some apparent confusion in the reviews below:
Ram Dass' book "Be Here Now" *can't* be a prelude to this book, since "Be Here Now" was written I think seven years *after* "The Psychedelic Experience." For those of you who don't know, "Ram Dass" is in fact Richard Alpert, one of the three authors of "The Psychedelic Experience."
To say that this book "adds nothing to the already huge body of liturature written on the topic" is like saying that The Bible adds nothing to the already huge body of christian literature. This book was at it's time absolutely revolutionary. It is to my knowledge the first work published giving a detailed road map for those travellers seeking spiritual enlightenment with the aid of psychedelics.
The brilliant reinterpretation of the Bardo Thodol as a guide for premortem ego death and the interpretation of numerous aspects of eastern mysticism in general in the light of Leary's "Game of Life" theory (e.g. "heavy world game playing" interpretations of "karma") makes the meaning of these ancient mystic teachings readily accessible to the mind of the western psychonaut.
If you're a psychonaut and want to better understand your experiences, read this book. If everybody who wanted to try a psychoactive substance would first read this book, there would probably never again be anybody who would have what s/he would call a "horror trip" (unless the heavy game players don't understand what they're reading and insist on taking the substances anyway.)
Read it and weep.
Wishing you Good Journeys,
erasurehead

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tomorrow Never Knows 27 décembre 2007
Par John P. Morgan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Since there is so much talk about the Beatles song, Tomorrow Never Knows, I have decided to use it as the 'working title' of this review.

We don't know what tomorrow will bring. It is a bit audacious on our part to even think that there might even be a tomorrow because all supposed tomorrows are simply extensions of our today.

I picked this book up in a used bookstore in San Francisco. I was at a crossroads in my life. I thought I really wanted to move up to the Bay Area for good. I thought that Southern California offered me as much as it possibly could, but now it was time to move to a different, higher part of the state.

What it was really time for was to move to a different, higher state of consciousness. It wasn't necessarily Southern California that wasn't offering anything more to my life, I wasn't offering anything more to my life. I was in a slump creatively, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually and you know what they say what the difference is between a slump and a grave --- about six feet.

Fortunately (or unfortunately according to some of my family members) I came across the three musketeers; Ralph Metzner, Richard Alpert, and Timothy Leary. I had long been interested in LDS but I wasn't ready to give up coffee and I didn't realy believe in polygamy...oh, wait, that's Latter Day Saints...I meant, LSD...lysergic acid diethylamide...Albert Hoffman's "problem child".

I had already been meditating and deeply studying Spirituality/metaphysics for a few years and I had many breakthroughs in many areas of my life, but like I said earlier, I felt I was in a slump. Maybe I should've just kept on doing it the 'old fashioned way' because psychedelics may promise enlightenment, but like most drugs do, they tend to lie.

I did my first and only session the right way, with a guide who has been through the process herself. We picked out appropriate music and she read me passages from this book.

The woman who was guiding me was slowly morphing into a beautiful crystal being. I could literally look through her and see the Pure Love that she was made in and out of as she read:

"O John
The time has come for you to seek new levels of reality.
Your ego and the John game are about to cease.
You are about to be set face to face with the Clear Light
You are about to experience it in its reality.
In the ego-free state, wherein all things are like the void and cloudless sky,
And the naked spotless intellect is like a transparent vacuum;
At this moment, know yourself and abide in that state..."

I began to realize, with Real Eyes, that everything I ever knew was 'made up'. I never saw life the way it truly was, I only saw it as I was. I could feel myself dying while at the same time I could feel my true SELF coming forth...

"O John
That which is called ego-death is coming to you.
Remember:
This is now the hour of death and rebirth;
Take advantage of this temporary death to obtain the perfect state -
Enlightenment.
Concentrate on the unity of all living beings.
Hold onto the Clear Light.
Use it to attain understanding and love..."

I began to get very clear messages from within my own heart why I chose the life I did. There might be some people who are reading this who might be thinking, "Oh, you were making it all up..." And that is exactly the point! We are making up life as we go along. Most of us do not understand, however, that all of life is simply a projection of what we are in consciousness.

"If you cannot maintain the bliss of illumination and if you are slipping back into contact with the external world,
Remember:
The hallucinations which you may now experience,
The visions and insights,
Will teach you much about yourself and the world.
The veil of routine perception will be torn from you eyes.
Remember the unity of all living things.
Remember the bliss of the Clear Light.
Let it guide you through the visions of this experience.
Let it guide you through your new life to come.
If you feel confused; call upon the memory of your friends and the power of the person whom you most admire..."

I began to feel wave after wave of Love, of Life, of Light...the three symbols that I, to this day, refer to the One Guiding Spirit I call God as. I began to cry as she held my hand - or what I thought of as my hand - and slowly but surely I merged with her and she merged with me and we were One. We always were. But just as I was One with her, I was One with the All. In fact, I never left the One that created me out of Itself.

"O John,
Try to reach and keep the experience of the Clear Light.
Remember:
The light is the life energy.
The endless flame of life.
An ever-changing surging turmoil of color may engulf your vision.
This is the ceaseless transformation of energy.
The life process.
Do not fear it.
Surrender to it.
Join it.
It is part of you.
You are part of it.
Remember also:
Beyond the restless flowing electricity of life is the ultimate reality -
The Void.
Your own awareness, not formed into anything possessing form or color, is naturally void.
The Final Reality.
The All Good.
The All Peaceful.
The Light.
The Radiance.
The movement is the fire of life from which we all come.
Join it.
It is part of you.
Beyond the light of life is the peaceful silence of the void.
The quiet bliss beyond all transformations.
The Buddha smile.
The Void is not nothingness.
The Void is beginning and end itself.
Unobstructed; shining, thrilling, blissful.
Diamond consciousness.
The All-Good Buddha.
Your own consciousness, not formed into anything,
No thought, no vision, no color, is void.
The intellect shining and blissful and silent -
This is the state of perfect enlightenment.
Your own consciousness, shining, void and inseparable from the great body of radiance, has no birth, nor death.
It is the immutable light which the Tibetans call Buddha Amitabha,
The awareness of the formless beginning.
Knowing this is enough.
Recognize the voidness of your own consciousness to be Buddhahood.
Keep this recognition and you will maintain the state of the divine mind of the Buddha."

All of my yesterdays and all of tomorrows are simply extensions of my today...of what I am being in this instant. People think that enlightenment or reaching a Christlike state takes years and years to reach. But even the Bible refers to it as something happening instaneously...

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
Corinthians 15:56

Many years have since passed since my one and only LSD experience. Sometimes my ego wants to go back and have "another one". Like the insatiable kid who could've satisfied his craving with just one piece of chocolate, but got sick after eating the whole box. Nope, all I need was confirmation, validation, appreciation for this Spiritual Path I was already on. It was truly a gift from my Self to my self.

I still live in Southern California. I became a Spiritual Counselor, met my wife, and every day is a beautiful new experience. Sometimes I'm not in awe and appreciation. Sometimes I'm really "stuck" in this world of form but as soon as I close my eyes and breathe in and out and just sloooooow dooooown...I can deeply realize with real eyes see that what I am looking for is always what I am looking with.

Read this book with an open mind and an expanded heart. Feel the Presence of Light all around you...all within you.

I am not advicating psychedelics in any way, shape, or form. I firmly believe you can "get" to another place in consciousness if you "let" yourself let go and just jump in. You are not your body. You never have been. You are the Light, the Life, and the Love of Something I call God, but it is from this Invisible Presence that all life stands forth out of.

Peace & Blessings,
john, 'the Light Coach'

5.0 étoiles sur 5 flow with fire-blood.... 17 avril 2001
Par Sam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is undoubtedly Learys definitive work.This guide book is absolutely essential if you are going to take a psychedelic drug.It really makes sense of the visions and sensations you will encounter in the different stages,or Bardos of the trip.To put it simply and to the point,Lennon said of this book,"Learys method is the only way to trip".It really is a great guide book that should send you in the right direction. PRICELESS.
P.S:All the negative reviews of this book all seem to miss the point...its a GUIDEBOOK in the truest sense of the word,an internal 'roadmap'.Its not meant to preach to you a certain point,its there to be used as a manual-to memorize and if need be,to read during your trip.You will need to get beyond the sometimes 'poetic' style and get to the essence of the message.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark Room for the 21st Century 20 août 2010
Par @d!m00L@# - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is an excellent and concise manual on how to use the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying to be able to gain perception of the clear light.

The reason for this book is NOT to give instant enlightenment. The purpose of this book is to practice the art of correct and conscious dying by using your mind to properly navigate the bardo.

Traditionally in Tibet this book would be used in 2 instances. The first is during a retreat known as dark room where the monks and nuns literally go into complete light isolation for a period of 49 days. During the initial 2 weeks the brain chemistry is radically altered to produce endogenous entheogens believed to be DMT. This way the bardo thodol can be experienced in holographic 3D mind projections or hallucinations. The only other time the bardo thodol is used is to read it to a person whom is actually dying to utilize the time of death as an opportunity to reach enlightenment through the perception of the clear light.

Psychedelics and dark room retreats are used in the same way a pilot would use a jet simulator. You can practice dying over and over again until you are able to quickly and easily perceive the clear light upon death (ego loss) and attain nirvana. In this instance ones mindstream will instantly be transferred into the realm of pure light or the 4th dimension.

This book helps one to experience the state of samadhi or rigpa which is the state of non-dual consciousness. The experience of rigpa is necessary to the practice of the inner tantras like dzogchen.

Even though this book mentions LSD, I suggest that we should only stick with the time tested entheogens used through out history like ayahuasca, iboga, peyote, san pedro etc....

This book is for those who want to use entheogens in a way to learn to attain liberation upon death also known as mahasamadhi or powa. Reading the passages from this book during spirit walking on the entheogen is an excellent way this book is to be used to attain liberation through listening.

This book helps us to gain confidence during a usually frightening and uncertain time in our lives. We are all going to die one day and this book teaches us how to go about doing it right and what to expect.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Few Corrections 5 octobre 2005
Par Publius - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
First a few corrections to ooo(Gold Trader)ooo's review just so people don't get confused with misinformation.

first-- the Beatles' song Gold Trader refers to is "Tomorrow Never Knows" on Revolver, and yes, it was obviously inspired by this book. Lennon claimed it was his only song which was actually about LSD. (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was about his son Julian's school drawing, according to Lennon)

second-- the Beatles were HUGE before they were ever exposed to LSD or Leary's manual, The book was written in 1964, the year Beatlemania swept the USA after being huge in Britain for over a year. That year they tried marijuana with Bob Dylan, but Lennon, who wrote "tomorrow never knows" didn't try LSD until 1965, (by accident) and sometime between then and when he wrote the song in 1966 (tomorrow never knows) is when he god clued into this book.

Another complete error already mentioned by other reviewers is about "Be Here Now" which was published in 1971, seven years after "the Psychedelic Experience." In fact, in "Be Here Now" Ram Dass talks about when Leary was writing "The Psychedelic Experience."

The internet has so many factual errors all over it, might as well correct these ones for a start.

As far as the book itself, it is quite interesting and may be of use in guiding one's experience with psychedelics. You should remember the context of this book and the times, though-- at the other pole, reacting against this extremely prescribed method of tripping was Ken Kesey with the Acid Tests, which you can read all about in Tom Wolfe's "Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test"

However, Leary's "manual" as this was, for tripping, did have a huge influence. I'd say, read this and the "Acid Test", and Ram Dass's "Be Here Now" which will let you know about some of the pros and cons of psychedelics from a very experienced tripper, then allow them all to influence your experience.

One last thing you can't forget with this "guide" is that it was written before LSD was illegal and by psychologists usuing pharmaceutical grade drugs-- not by people getting illegal drugs which they didn't know the quality or strength of. As Leary later says in the preface to "Politics of Ecstasy", the "Psychedelic Experience" and the "Psychedelic Reader" were written for a mature audience of intellectuals, not the masses of kids who would eventually try to use it.
