I firmly believe that if one must find God then one is best served in submission to the altar of "Pure Reason." This post will elaborate upon my admittedly subjective interpretation of psychological/spiritual/philosophical transformations, fed through my obsessive analysis of my own developments.
____________________________________________________
TLDR: Solving the complex quandary of "how do I live in greatest wellbeing" incorrectly (by sedative coping and consciousness dulling) ultimately leads to a hangover-like march to the grave. Live in accordance to reason and you shall find the most satisfaction from life long term.
____________________________________________________

I will start with the recognition that although I do strongly relate to many autistic experiences, I have recently become honest with myself regarding my exhibition of a Cluster B personality type, likely induced by early childhood trauma in terms of forced separation from early, emotionally unintelligent figures.

I have spent a life of dulling my sensation to affective empathy from a very young age. This permitted me to witness the "opiating effect" of affective empathy, and in my young adulthood I began transforming my outward demeanor to achieve the opiating effect on others. I recognized this as beneficial to meeting my survival needs.

Recently... I broke physiologically. It occurred because I am studying software engineering in a difficult fashion, and the mental strain inherent to complex problem solving with deadlines rendered me nearly incompetent at doing things like eating properly, bathing, etc. I could logically realize it was a matter of "seeing the puzzle as fun instead of stressful" but I was still straining my health in other ways, and I went through a week in which my brain felt like an engine without lubricant and was performing nearly ADHD level distraction techniques. I forced with will to focus enough to continue, but the weekend produced a moment of clarity as my mind and body gave in to "cope."

It has been studied in "mind control" style experiments that someone becomes the most suggestible after severe stress, that they open to a new "way of salvation," a realization others can use to influence behavior towards desirable ends. I suspect that spiritual awakenings and philosophical transformations are a manifestation of classical conditioning.... it is the response to trauma. I also suspect that cultures themselves craft "ways of thinking" to encourage transformations useful to that civilization for a variety of neurotypes, personalities, and classes.

Almost everyone appears to be living as a junkie in pursuit of sedation (with a loose use of the word meaning the dulling of immediate pain). Affective empathy is deeply sedative to neurotypicals. From that perspective, people like being around someone acting Bill Clinton because he's a walking ibuprofin. I suspect Hitler had an effect on people similar to an amphetamine. People get a long burning mood stabilizer from having "warm and empathetic relationships."

I have found personally that unfocused rumination is also sedative and is my strongest addiction.

What are the choices of transformation for intelligent, cynical Cluster B's? The refutation of overt, neurotypical mysticism makes this complex, as they will attempt to convert "to reason," and they will mostly do so incorrectly by "coping" instead. Some will repress their already stunted sensations of remorse, guilt, and concern for justice into psychopathy (or be traumatized into that at birth)... because psychopaths don't seem to suffer. Those smarter will attempt a methodology to reconstruct affective empathy without attachment, to get that mood stabilizing cope. Those smarter yet will begin to meditate away consciousness to become like a machine which concerns itself not with the anxieties of future degradation and trauma...preserving what is merely necessary to enhance one's need to feel as an infinitely young, beautiful, loved, omnipotent cosmic deity.... to get that "cope." The smartest who still fail at wisdom will try to meditate away consciousness to become as an animal who does not consciously experience causality... they will try something like Zen.

You can see Hollywood style personalities strongly manifested here. I am not attempting to say that all people attempting these lifestyles are Cluster B. I am saying these lifestyles are nevertheless irrational.

What does sedation lead to when applied without cessation? It leads to suffering... like a hangover. The "ice cold psycho" is in a state of heavy sedation from agony they're running from like an addict. They do not realize it.

I suspect that living in sedation until your bodily machinery prevents sedation from working is what leads to dementia. Perhaps dementia is "the hangover from living too much of life in madness."

Thinking all these things, I tried something. I tried therapeutic breathing and massaging out of severe need for release from pain. I could immediately feel the bloodflow permeate my body and my neck and back regain looseness. At first the desire for psychological cope came. I found a drive towards both psychopathic and Zen thinking, perceiving myself as having found a method in congruence with reason. My interpretation of Zen was highly self-interested... like wanting to find wealth in order to cocoon and meditate for longevity and youth, like the whole thing was a big con to get the unintelligent competitors to live in weakness doing nothing... like I was supposed to see a cryptic cultural message which told me the truth of a psychopathic religion for those socially intelligent enough to "get it." This is likely projection of my thinking at the time.

I was sitting however in a moment and found my mental voice recalling "trauma." I found it easy... very easy... to swat the sentiment. I realized then the nature of the cope...the sedation of sacrificing your cognitive bandwidth to the pain it feels.

So I stopped trying to escape. I found my body and mind to feel literally "in a hangover" the moment I successfully meditated while not trying to transform my mind. I realized this is what the sedation covers up. I realized that enduring this brief hell is infinitely better than waiting until the grave forces it. It's healing and allows you to enjoy the better sedations of life "not as a junkie." I can very clearly discern my mental and physical wellbeing improving with this view of living in a rapid way.

The intoxicants of life are worth pursuing so long as one can sit and be philosophically honest with oneself about processing trauma with full mindfulness.

You may find this all to be a bit "well duh," but to me it feels quite seriously liberating.

I read some of your words and thought I would comment on some ruminations.

I'm beginning to wonder if man's development of reason is an adaptation from a traumatic environment in which the animal is fulfilling its own frenzied instinct to "be young, healthy, and beautiful forever" and realizes this is not going to occur without manipulating the environment. It appears to undergo enormous bodily/mental strain in this quest, and in its infantile development of analytical reasoning, is viewing suicidal living as the answer....suicidal in the sense that one is behaving in fashions which degrade the whole physiological wellbeing, creating faster ageing. It appears as a chimpanzee with its hand stuck in a trap attempting the reward response and getting less capable of deductive reasoning due to frustration.

I suspect that in the frenzied quest and the mental/physical trauma one inflicts upon oneself in the idiocy of youth, man gives up the struggle of a logical analysis of reality. He releases his hand from the trap and deludes himself into saying "My analysis is now complete, and I may stop this philosophical quandary which has given me anxiety, depression, bodily ageing from stress, and various neurological complications." This release from struggle provides euphoria in contrast to stress, and the animal now associates the delusion with the reward response, sedating trauma with "the answer to everything." This appears to permit the animal to drive through further trauma without feeling the need to intelligently respond.

Human culture does seem to provide archetypes through monomythic narrative which prepare its various neurological and personality types for their trauma delusional response based on their education/class. I suspect this is the collective drive for immortality which coerces the human animal into cooperating suicidality with the march towards scientific actualization of our primal "wants." What is competitive civilization but the best narrative tricks to persuade the ambitious to addictively bear the cognitive strain of executing the mass sedation of the "neuro-servile" population for the purpose of generating the economic growth required to produce intellectual capital?

Perhaps the nature of philosophy is sobriety. The quest for mankind ought to be the sophisticated cultural transmission to all that "Thought is madness. Logic is the answer to everything." Perhaps man could then realize that material/intellectual scarcity is the condition of predation and in information/material abundance, there is a more rational manner in which to answer the frenzied question of fulfilling our animal lust for personal divinity.

In simple terms...what do you define as personal divinity?

The embodiment of a fluid mentalization of consciousness in perfect accordance with LOGIC.... to the ends of increasing one's personal sense of euphoric vitality as stably and long as possible. This is in accordance with one's strongest, driving instinct: "The will to live, overcome, and triumph in world of causal entropy."

This includes the mentalization of optimum social and emotional intelligence in addition to analytical deduction.

What if one reinterprets sayings of "great prophets" as a socially, emotionally intelligent means of transferring knowledge through social institutions dominated by those with "elevation addiction?"

What if one attempts to read them in terms of simple, practical logical descriptions which are not mystical (beyond the understanding of trauma delusional responses) and instead attempt to read them as "technical manuals made in plain language, distorted over time by those with ambition/greed?"

Something like this:

Christianity:
The way (constant behavioral pattern) to God (state of pure Logical Analysis of Reality) is through me (Mental Sobriety).

Hinduism:
Nirvana: breathing correctly (muscle tension decreases CONSTANTLY while breathing at ALL times.).

Samsara: Ignorance of "reasoned world of causal entropy" and the ways in which cultural informational transfer informs internal/external sense of identity as "delusion of heroic narrative struggle" in response to "stupid life methods which cause cognitive strain."

Duhka: Mental and Bodily Strain leading to increased ageing and dysphoric experience of life. Literally
muscle tension and anxiety/depression/dark rumination.
Created by failure to practice a perfectly logical mentalization of reality.

Rebirth: Life method failure. Uneasy recalibration of "how to be."

Reincarnation: reinvention of one's self deluded heroic narrative which adapts to previous failure.

Karma: Action. The "doing of."

Atman: The self as a "state of optimum logical reasoning" towards the achievement of chosen hero
delusion.

Tanha: Lack of tranquility/strain (leads to bodily and neurological trauma)
Types -
Kama: Wanting Sensory stimulation which has positive euphoric association.
Bhava: Frustration about inventing one's identity in accordance to achievement of grandiose self
delusion.
Vibhava: Aversion to suffering. Produces suicidal living behaviors to addictively chase "irrational
euphoria which does not increase vitality."



Parinirvana:
Perfectly blissful DMT trip at death. Lack of suffering at dissolution of psyche. Is better with complete fulfillment of one's chosen heroic archetype because of VITAL adaptation from traumatic struggle, brain-engine recharging from meditation, and living without bodily tension/anxiety/depression.



Buddhism:


Sunyata: Man thinks categorically and incorrectly assumes his useful categorical tools are absolute representations of the world of causal entropy.

Moha: Dullness and delusion of consciousness potential. Intoxication/sedation of trauma.

Enlightenment: Sobriety from Moha. Creates optimum intuitive apprehension.

Means:
Accumulating cultural knowledge through reading and exposure.

Logical Analysis development and constant application as "exclusive representation of internal
willpower."

Meditation (recharging your brain-engine from overusing it). Stop fantasizing (these are part of your hero delusion). Think purely in terms of logical analysis or do not think at all. Exercise present mindfulness. Study philosophy/science/history/art/religion. Understand that you can "be a persona" while in this state. Rest after exertion against trauma.

Wu: Optimum intuitive apprehension is achieved with a euphorically believed mentalization of reality in accordance to LOGIC.




I would call this "personal divinity" as a life method.

What you call "logic" that the objective of life is to achieve self-actualisation is subjective. The human mind is capable of what Maslow calls higher self-fulfilment but in reality many humans allow their minds to slide into nihilism and living for self-gratification. Indeed many people construct their lives in order to gratify their urges and/or desires.

I will try to phrase it even more literally:

Place two fingers on your right shoulder on the point of greatest strain. Refuse to breathe until the strain can be pushed down like butter while you cyclically breathe. Use this technique carefully to ease total body tension and restore optimum blood flow to the brain. Attempt to always breathe with relaxation of whole body as you go about daily living. You will naturally desire to walk with perfect posture.

Keep presence of mind while you do this. All fantasies and daydreams should be seen as "drugs." Focus instead on euphoria of regular blood flow to the brain without attempting to "get high with it." Instead try attempt to think logic while maintaining presence of mind. Ask "what is the thinking process of a godmind of reason who manipulates his environment with presence and ease?"

This sounds like a mindfulness relaxation technique, but what has it got to do with divinity?

It is the utilization of trauma induced classical conditioning to breath to reduce tension by default.

I'm saying that I think religion works like this. People "get into their heads" very early competing in the world and lose
"constant presence." This makes them start breathing incorrectly. Their spinal chord gets rigid and blood flow to the brain is diminished because of muscle tension. Eventually... a trauma induced correction is made in which one matures their stage of cognition. They make "faith" in order to "cope" with the reality that their previous way of mentalizing the world was "stupid." They grasp at culture for a an answer to the primal religious question. One cannot simply stop thinking about how to live forever euphorically, as an animal wishes to.

"God" as external from self is an archetypal icon to represent the opiate of a mind unproperly adapted who sees divinity as permanent euphoric seeking behavior. Affective empathy is the ultimate manifestation of an unshakable addiction, and heaven is often viewed as communion with warmth. It's literally a chase towards permanent doping, and this view lends itself towards "cattle-like" behavior. The traumatized mind can tolerate further trauma without intelligent resistance. It sees the world in terms of pure euphoric attraction/repulsion.

"Atheism" leads to anxiety and depression due to rumination of lack of fulfilment and death. Steady consumption of euphoria in its various formats is required. The mind sees life in "managed hedonistic" terms, and if the euphoric consumption is never abated, dark thinking and bodily pain slowly become strongly felt.

"Personal Divinity" is simply to understand the trauma response and "choose Logic" as an "inspiring, constant faith that one's biological organism is in accord with a world of causal entropy." Breathing properly for tension management and avoiding rumination will bring a mood stabilizer. One learns to "live again intelligently in the environment."

I realize it's anecdotal, but practicing the relaxation method has brought immense spinal relief.

Place two fingers on your right shoulder on the point of greatest strain. Refuse to breathe until the strain can be pushed down like butter while you cyclically breathe. Use this technique carefully to ease total body tension and restore optimum blood flow to the brain. Attempt to always breathe with relaxation of whole body as you go about daily living. You will naturally desire to walk with perfect posture.

Keep presence of mind while you do this. All fantasies and daydreams should be seen as "drugs." Focus instead on euphoria of regular blood flow to the brain without attempting to "get high with it." Instead try attempt to think logic while maintaining presence of mind. Ask "what is the thinking process of a godmind of reason who manipulates his environment with presence and ease?"




Dance Then Sing...

i often Dance With a Small Hand Towel...

When All 246 Pounds of me Becomes the Weight
of the Towel in Total Balance, Friends With Gravity

Indeed
i become
Divine Just
ONE with Gravity...

Then escaping the Illusion
of the Pre-Frontal-Cortex; the Rest of my Mind
And Body As Science Now Shows Becomes 400
to 500 And More Percent Creative as i've
Simply Opened up my Human Potential
in Expanding Parts of my Mind and Body
That Are not Being Used Before; Now, of
Course, i am Describing it in a somewhat
Complex Autotelic Flow of Words;
But Still All it amounts
to is me;
all
of
me the
Weight
of A Hand Towel
Fully in Balance
One With Gravity;
indeed, Literally Divine
as Science Does show the
Ascendent Transcendent
Nature in Brain Scans
of Escaping the
'Wall'
Comfortably
Numb in the
"Pre-Frontal-
Cortex" in Illusions
of Time, Distance And
Space where in this other
Place none of that really exists,
Becoming Center Point Existence
in Balance Again; Just simply one with
Gravity as Planets Orbit Stars and Stars
Orbit the 'Calm' of the Black Hole Center Divine;
As Above, So Below, Within, Inside, Outside And
All Around When We Pattern Ourselves with Nature;
We Obviously
Become
Nature
and
understand,
indeed, our Nature
is 'this' little 3 Letter
Word some folks refer
to as 'God' that is much bigger
than one Dude; one Book, One
Page, and One Word as Big as 'ALLNoWLoVE';
Simply the Gravity That is No Gravity of Balance Now.

Who Knew it's as easy as dancing with a Gym Towel;

It's Highly unlikely that anyone but me does that at
a Military Gym, the Way i did before COVID-19 Closed
it down; But on the Other Hand, when i was there reaching
60 Years-Old; what i did do as a Feather Floating in the Wind
as i became the Weight of a Gym Towel in Total Autotelic Flow
One with the Balance of Gravity; as everyone else was doing their
Best to Pump some Iron; i floated right on over to the Leg Press Machine
And Pressed up to 1520 Pounds, 8 Reps in the Same Balance as a Feather in the
Wind; It's
Worth
noting
that no one
else Decades Younger
than me could budge it an inch;
True, when i put on 1340 Pounds
Pressing it slowly, 100 Seconds on
YouTube; one Person Commented they
Hoped the Weight Came Crashing Down
on me Killing Me; another Person who NO,
would never be able to budge it an inch, complained
that during the Entire 100 Seconds; and a very slow 12 Reps
That i only Moved it 90 Degrees; not Bringing the Weight to
my Chest, being Ignorant enough to Hurt my back for obviously
the Mechanics of that didn't have to Look Dangerous; my Body
Instinctually understood the Limits of Balance; But on the Other
Hand, after Public Dancing Now for 13,606 Miles in 84 Months
The Density of my Bones, Ligaments, and Tendons are
more Naturally Attuned to What Science now Shows
is Possible For Humans, spending a life moving
instead of Sitting Still; Literally Having
the Strength of an Orangutan;
It's Worth Noting they
only Work-Out
with their
Body
Weight
to achieve that;
True, 'the Feather in
the Wind' is No Longer
Domesticated and Clothed
With Lies away from What Humans
are Most Definitely Born with the Potential to do;

How do we
miss it NoW?

Simply, for every layer
of Cultural Clothes that
Removes us from the Intuition,
Instinct Innate that Makes more
Supernormal than Human Clothed
And very Limited Pre-Frontal-Cortex Machines instead
Of Relative Dreamtime of Reality that is No Time at all...

Smiles, true, some folks live a very 'Black and White
Mechanical World'; Others Fly with Colors in Balance

Never Recognized
by still others to
even exist at all...

Mileage of Course Varies Now,
by Make and Model of Human
Being; the real Magic is in the
Epigenetics of Change that may Be
Achieved For More Human Potential
at Almost Any Age; as other Case-Studies
in Humanity already Prove without a Shadow of a Doubt...

From my perception, this is a strange thread. But since you experienced trauma and it affects your life, then I would suggest that you increase your knowledge on how the human brain deals with trauma. There is a good book In An Unspoken Voice by Peter A. Levine that provides quit a bit of insight.

Stress is chemical in nature. A threat will cause a person to release a cascade of hormones and other chemicals that unless used are stored in the muscles and nerves. This accumulated stress energy can build up until it transforms into distress, such as trauma. So the goal to resolve trauma is to vent this stress energy.

I never found meditation to be an optimal way to release this stress energy.
-------------------
In Eastern Religions, they talk about a state called Nirvana. Nirvana literally means, "cool" or "to extinguish", and it is a state where suffering has been "extinguished." Or said another way, the flames of desire have been cooled. In short, it is a state of the ultimate freedom - freedom from sorrow, but also freedom from happiness. It is a state of consciousness, which is above all others. In ancient Sanskrit, the three syllables (nir+var+na) actually had multiple meanings themselves, so when you combine them, they could be translated different ways, such as "To be free from entangled roots," or "To escape from the woven web." Nirvana is a transcendent reality. It is a state of profound peace and great wisdom.

So one of the Stepping-Stones to Nirvana is actually described above as “a state of the ultimate freedom - freedom from sorrow, but also freedom from happiness”. I have developed this trait and coined the phrase, “the Spock Anomaly” to describe it. It is a form of mild brain disassociation (in some ways similar to daydreaming). Under stress, I have the ability to separate the emotional part and the analytical part of my outer brain (the social brain) and completely turn off the emotional side of my brain. As a result I no longer feel emotions. I don’t feel fear, hatred, anger, distress, and anxiety. All emotions cease to affect me. It is “freedom from sorrow and freedom from happiness”. It is “to be free from entangled roots”. Then I spin up my analytical brain and resolve the stressor.

This ability did not come about through meditation, but rather from developing my imagination and daydreaming. One cannot experience trauma if one cannot feel the effects of stress emotionally.

I have been thinking on this subject, and my best answer is to synthesize the "spiritual philosophies" of Indian, Greek, and Sinese culture. It is a crude categorization to begin thinking of "vital existence."

Pure meditative existence is dissatisfying because you are not living "in accordance to reason." What does a Greek analytical view of "the nature of man's capacity for reason" tell us? It is an evolution against the traumatic struggle of a world trying to extinguish your stable, lengthy vitality.

Sinese philosophy is informing one as to both a state of total internal fantasy (taoism) and the management of one's public "face." Studying Chinese explorations of "face" is fascinating and is the best means of wielding "hierarchical social intelligence." Perhaps taoist practice is the achievement of "pure creativity" in a focused "fantastical delusioning" of reality as an act of creative pleasure. If one applies Indian philosophy as to the nature of "internal fantasy" perhaps the focused practice of Daoism when fantastical release is "cathartically required" helps to inform oneself as to the nature of your optimum "chosen heroic struggle."

Perhaps best living in accordance to reason goes technically like this:

"Classically condition oneself to breathe to constantly reduce strain. Attempt not to ruminate and instead figure how to learn and function without breaking presence. Apply dissociative fantasy selectively in states of total spinal relaxation with awareness of heroic delusion in attempt to know one's path in life in accordance with one's interests and motivations. Use one's public manifestation of persona with knowledge of addictive quality of affective empathy in order to wield emotional power. Understand that one is genetically hardwired for both competitive survival and for justice aka a reasoned concern for the welfare of selected group identity. This is because the human animal could not function in groups otherwise. Failure to realize ambition in conjunction with justice will cause dysphoria over time."

Put more obviously: Figure out who you want to be in life. Fight zealously against the odds with as little strain as possible by classical conditioning of body and mind for presence and ease. Use logical analysis to overcome the trauma of self achievement by efficient planning and execution of actions. Rest with relaxed fantasy if life method fails to bring satisfaction.

Greatness comes with optimum application of reason as to one's biological organism, its environmental reaction, and understanding of "why man reasons at all."

It just seems from my perspective that you are trying to wrap too many things together. Stress can produce panic attacks and deep breathing can help a person end a panic attack.

Our lungs take in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. The shortness of breath that occurs during panic attacks and anxiety is often caused by a change in your normal breathing pattern. Typically, we are not conscious of our breathing. When panic and anxiety occur, our breathing may become more shallow and restricted. Instead of filling the lungs with full, complete breaths, we take in quick short breaths.

Both panic and stress researchers have examined the fleeting effects of the increased carbon dioxide levels. Elevated levels produce breathlessness, dizziness, and minor anxiety in most participants and panic attacks in those with or at risk for panic disorder.

Research into panic attacks showed that: Notably, the researchers found that patients' carbon dioxide, or CO2, levels (using a portable capnometer to measure CO2 collected from exhaled breath) were in an abnormally low range, indicating the patients were chronically hyperventilating. These levels rose significantly shortly before panic onset and correlated with reports of anxiety, fear of dying and chest pain.

One technique for controlling panic is to implement deep breathing techniques. Force the body to take very deep slow breathes and vent the carbon dioxide buried deep within the lungs. Deep diaphragmatic breathing can be performed as follows:
1. Take a long, slow breath in through your nose, first filling your lower lungs, then your upper lungs.
2. Hold your breath to the count of "three."
3. Exhale slowly through pursed lips, while you relax the muscles in your face, jaw, shoulders, and stomach.

So although deep breathing can help to control a panic attack, it does not really vent the stress energy. It still remains.

Figure out who you want to be in life.


From my perception there are two major choices in life. You can live as a conformist and let society OWN you, control you and you can suffer greatly as a result. The other choice is to become a non-conformist and own yourself. Most of the world flows in conformity. But some do escape and leave the herd and walk on their own two feet. These are some quotes about non-conformists:

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Rob Siltanen: Apple, "Think Different" campaign

It gives me great pleasure indeed to see the stubbornness of an incorrigible nonconformist warmly acclaimed. - Albert Einstein

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain

Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing a new road. - Voltaire

Not all those who wander are lost. - J.R.R. Tolkien

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. - Winston Churchill

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A "normal" person is the sort of person that might be designed by a committee. You know, "Each person puts in a pretty color and it comes out gray." - Alan Sherman

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. - Friedrich Nietzsche

The average man is a conformist, accepting miseries and disasters with the stoicism of a cow standing in the rain. - Colin Wilson

Freedom began on the day the first sheep wandered away from the herd. ― Marty Rubin
