Entheogen: Awakening the Divine Within


Entheogen: Awakening the Divine Within

The film examines the re-emergence of archaic techniques of ecstacy in the modern world by weaving a synthesis of ecological and evolutionary awareness,electronic dance culture, and the current pharmacological re-evaluation of entheogenic compounds. Within a narrative framework that imagines consciousness itself to be evolving, Entheogen documents the emergence of techno-shamanism in the post-modern world that frames the following questions: How can a renewal of ancient initiatory rites of passage alleviate our ecological crisis? What do trance dancing and festivals celebrating unbridled artistic expression speak to in our collective psyche? How do we re-invent ourselves in a disenchanted world from which God has long ago withdrawn? Entheogen invites the viewer to consider that the answers to these questions lie within the consciousness of each and every human being, and are accessible if only we give ourselves permission to awaken to the divine within.

Translation: It's about consciousness :P

Shift from 'Mindful-Mess' to 'Mindful-Ness'

"He who looks outside dreams, he who looks inside awakes."
Carl Gustav Jung

Meditation, the most powerful mind tool ever developed.
Activates the 5th Neurosomatic Circuit (See 8 Circuits of Consciousness Model)
Which means we let go of our Physical, Emotional, Logical and Social circuits and become the witness of our bodily sensations, emotions and our thoughts instead of identifying with them.
Leads to a blissful witnessing zen state of mind (comparable to Marijuana)
A better connection between mind and body (Hypnosis & NLP also work on the 5th Circuit).
Multidimensional thinking as patterns, habits, programming and conditioning lessen.
Meditation has been proven to improve creativity, intelligence, memory, alertness.
It has been shown to improve physical, mental, and emotional health.
By looking within we can really know and experience reality, instead of being limited to our beliefs or intellectual conceptions of it.
We gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions.
We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.
Increase synchronicities, as the objective outside and the subjective inside worlds merge in a wonderful dance of meaningful coincidences.
Integrates left and right brain functioning. Increases intuitive capabilities.
Purifies the Nervous System (What a positive name btw :p)
Align to the Quantum source energy vibration, a Quantum Symphony.
Awaken the dormant Kundalini at the base of the spine to energize & evolve us.
Brain functioning shapes the content of daily experience, in turn each experience shapes the brain.

Meditating twice daily, in the morning right after waking up and in the evening before dinner, is optimal for becoming a more integrated, healthy, conscious being on the road to conscious evolution and enlightenment.


"Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world."
Hans Margolius

"Disconnected from the previous goals and survival concerns of Circuits 1-4, this center is the opening of the five senses as the chief source of all life and relevant information. Being Here Now. The natural sensory rhythms and impulses of the body uncensored by mental, emotional or moral intervention. The hedonic needs for rapture, bliss and ecstatic experience. The post-survival quest for nirvana."
Antero Alli about Circuit 5

Sanity - Sanitized
If your consciousness is not sanitized, how can you be sane?

"You're just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway. You've got to get down to your own God in your own temple. It's all down to you, mate."
John Lennon

Osho: Challenge is Life

Go on trying and by and by one becomes more skillful. Just time is needed. And fear is natural, but don't be overpowered by it. It's natural, so accept it. Much will start surfacing in. Everybody carries so much potentiality that they don't even dream about. Their dreams are as their reality... just superficial. You don't know what you are carrying within you. If a little effort is made, more and more of your inner being will be made available to you.

Fear is natural because one is moving in darkness. The inner journey is very dark. Light comes but that is only at the end. First one has to pass through the tunnel, hence trust is needed. The world of light, of course artificial light, is no more there and the world of real light has not yet happened. Just in between the two there is a tunnel of darkness. The mind says 'Go back! At least there was some light. Maybe the light was outside you, but still it was. Maybe it was artificial, but at least it was. Go back! Cling to theories and words and philosophies'.

It is just like when you dive deep into water and an urge arises to go back to the surface. This is a greater depth than that. No ocean is so deep as the inner reality. So one trembles, feels afraid, lost, uprooted. One feels unskillful because the new is so new and you have never practised it. But by and by if you go on with courage and you take the challenge of the unknown, that very challenge will create the capacity to encounter it.

Once you accept a challenge, you start becoming capable of encountering it. Nothing else is needed because the capacity is lying there within you fast asleep because you have never used it.

So whenever there is a challenge, never reject it... welcome it. Challenge is life and life-giving. So whenever there is a challenge, immediately take the opportunity and thank God that again the unknown is before you. Again you are afraid, good. Again the security is no more there, good. Again you move in the insecure. Again the adventure starts and you don't know where you are going you don't know where you will reach, or whether you will ever reach.

You don't even know who you are because a man knows himself only by something that he is capable of doing. Somebody says, 'I am a doctor'. He knows himself because he can do certain things. somebody says, 'I am an advocate', because he knows that he can do something. Somebody says, 'I am a carpenter'. We know ourselves by our doing.

When you move into the unknown, you cannot do anything. You don't know where you are going, what is going to happen. Every moment is going to be a surprise, something just out of the blue. Sooner or later you start feeling that you are losing your identity. So the greatest fear is of losing one's identity, the image, the ego, the nameplate. You cannot carry it into the unknown.

Fear is there but don't pay much attention to it. It is there because of the challenge. Pay attention to the challenge. When you look at the challenge you will not feel bad about the fear; you will say that this is natural.

When one has to climb an Everest fear is natural. I don't see anything abnormal in it. In fact if a man is going to climb Everest and he doesn't feel any fear, he is abnormal; something is perverted about him. Maybe he is insensitive, an idiot, stupid, unaware. When a man starts moving, climbing the Himalayas, it is natural that fear will be felt.

But if when you move on the street of your town you are afraid, then it is abnormal. If in the known you fear, it is abnormal. If you feel fear with the unknown, it is indicative, symptomatic, that there is something that you don't know, with which you are unfamiliar, a strange country you are entering, the language of which is not known to you, and you have no map. There is every possibility that you may be lost forever and may not be able to come back. Fear is natural.

But take the challenge, focus on the challenge; then fear is just the shadow of the challenge. Never pay much attention to shadows because if you do, shadows tend to become realities. Always pay attention to the reality. When you are focused on reality you can see what is a shadow and what is real. The unreal has no more influence on you.

If you are really interested in mysticism, become a mystic. You have taken the first step, hence the fear. Accept the challenge, mm?
