Non-duality and God

(Non-duality and God)
Silence works best..!

God is often named and created
from an assumption of separation..
 The illusory separation resides
in a culture and egos 
searching to close the gap..
Resistance rises in the form of a-theism
and in the dilemma of the twins: 
belief and non-belief..
New birthing cries out
for recognition that any name
only points to the infinite 
named as Consciousness..
Yet..alas..another name for
the unnamable..
Silence works best...!

XXX  Michael Pollan on the medical advantage of psychedelics:

That I could survive the dissolution of my ego and its defenses was surely something to be grateful for, and we talked at length about this. What a remarkable gift: to learn that we can let go of so much — the desires, fears and defenses of a lifetime! — without suffering complete annihilation. This might not come as a surprise to Buddhists or serious meditators, but it was news to me, who had never felt anything but identical to my ego. Could it be that there is another ground on which to plant our feet? For the first time, I began to understand what the volunteers in the cancer-anxiety trials were telling me — how it was that a single psychedelic journey granted them a perspective from which the very worst life can throw at us could be regarded objectively and accepted with equanimity. I had been given a glimpse of that liberating perspective.
