If you want my non-Medical advice, read myth, go for walks in the woods, listen to folk music. You need to reintroduce calm and simplicity so that you don't get caught between worlds.
Don't take the pills if you are capable of this, instead take a break from reading, connect with some people or at least some traditional activity.

Guenon is the final red pill of western philosophy. There is no one worth while that came after him. If you don't like him, you are either coping with the fact that you are too lazy to ever accomplish anything of spiritual value, or too entrenched in your modern biases to see beyond to the traditional. If you felt yourself becoming mad after reading him, you are probably in the first category and are desperately trying to set your soul to higher things

There is a spiritual kingdom in the universe, and also a temporal power; above the throne light,
and below darkness; both these principles He bestowed at the creation, when He spread His
shadow over His handiwork. The temporal world He has given of His bounty to the body, the
spiritual world as a glory to the soul; that so both inner and outer man may receive food, the
body from the lord of this world, the soul from the Lord of the spirit-world; for through all His
creation God keeps a benign grace for the benefit of the noble soul.
The acute thinker knows that what He does is well; it is thou who namest some things evil and
some good, otherwise all that comes from Him is pure kindness. Evil comes not into existence
from Him; how can evil subsist with Godhead? Only the foolish and ignorant do evil; the Doer
of good Himself does no evil. If He gives poison, deem it sweet; if He shows wrath, deem it
mercy. Good is the cupping-glass our mothers apply to us, and good too the dates they give.

Be thou contented with God's ordinance; or if not, then cry aloud and complain before the Qâzî,
that he may release thee from His decree! A fool is he who thinks thus! Whatever it is,--whether
misfortune or prosperity,--it is an unmixed blessing, and the evil only transitory. He who brings
the world into being with 'Be, and it was,'--how, how shall He do evil to the creatures of the
world? Good and evil exist not in the world of the Word; the names 'good' and 'evil' belong to
thee and to me. When God created the regions of the earth He created no absolute evil; death is
destruction for this one, but wealth for that; poison is food to this, and death to that.
If the face of the mirror were black like its back, no one would look at it; the usefulness belongs
to the face of the mirror, even though its back be stuffed with jewels. The bright-faced sun is
good, be its back black or white; if the peacock's foot were like its feathers, it would shine
splendid both by night, and day."

Sorry for the polemical, my contact with Gurdjieff desu has been through Ouspensky. With RAW I've read the illuminatus trilogy and PR.

With Gurdjieff, my issue is that like a lot of people referenced by the new age movement he tends to collect ideas from places like gnosticism and hindu/Buddhist esotericism, and masticates them into a more palpable form. Except he seems to take only the entry level ideas, and keeps harping on them, and what's more uses analogies that seem deliberately misleading. Ouspensky talks about him in the same worshipful way as Casteneda does about Don Juan, but Gurdjieff seems to be leading him on with the same ideas over and over, as if he just craves the authority or the attention. Imo if you want another secondhand source for the material Gurdjieff borrows from but with more helpful explanations read Samael Aum Weyor or something.

As far as RAW he falls into the same issues but he's so couched in his smug 1960s bubble of his outdated vision of progress it would be outright cloying or funny if it wasn't so typical of the writers of that generation. Discordianism frankly seems to be a misreading of the less useful ideas of chaos magic and alchemy, but all this wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't the first author almost everyone interested in this stuff gets referred to. He, McKenna, and Watts, I think have stuff looking into but they should NOT be the first places people look. There's too much info to sort out.

Oddly enough I am a christfag, but a lot of the spiritual mental exercises I do come from looking into occultism or esotericism. Partially, short of Ignatius, there doesn't seem to be a great deal of resources comparatively for that sort of thing accessible in writing in Christendom.

Well I don't really know how to respond. I really see a lot more in them.
You say Gurdjieff draws from older traditions, but he explicitly talks about how they are all subsets of, and therefore inferior to, his teachings. And he backs that up in a very convincing manner! So I don't see him as a mere modern distortion of Buddhism or Hinduism. I've read the Gita, and for all it's depth it still seems less complete than Gurdjieff's system, which is much more focused on the methods and techniques to achieve those transformations, spiritual growth, consciousness expansion, whatever you call it.
As for Bob Wilson, I enjoy and appreciate the hippie mannerisms, the irreverence, the utopian politics which seem to irritate you. A matter of taste. You say he and his gang might have their places as secondary sources in this field, but not as introductions. Who do you recommend in their place? I find Prometheus Rising a great introduction. Levity is an important quality of any introduction, I believe, and he gives you tons of leads you can chase down when you're done with the books. Also, once again, the emphasis on practice, on methods, which is excellent.

>The author identifies some 25 historical solutions to the problem which are then reduced. Beginning with the problem of evil in the west professor A.L. Herman traces the history of one of the most fascinating of all perennial philosophical puzzles. The author identifies some twenty one historical solutions to the problem which are then reduced to eight quite distinct solutions. Prof. Herman then turns in the second part of the book to the history of the problem of evil in Indian thought. The author then joins the analysis of the problem of evil (taken from the first part of the book) to the Indian doctrine of rebirth in order to attempt a solution to the problem. By careful analysis the author shows that the doctrine of rebirth can satisfy the conditions already set forth as adequate for a solution to the problem of evil.

I kind of started down the schizo road after reading "Reign of Quantity" basically the part where he talks about Number got me. It fucking clicked. I started to understand where we went wrong since the middle ages, God, atom theory, "individual", time, etc. It hit me hard and i was not ready. Some time after that i had a dream where a fucking valkyrie came and gave me a jug full of mead and i drank it and then i woke up and started to really freak out. I went to some discord channel where a schizo guy was chanting mantras about Hyperboreans with blue blood every 5 minutes (He did this throughout several days).

After that it got a lot better, I'm still reading Guenon and Evola and i don't feel "schizo" any more but at one point i really started to think i was "le chosen one" or some shit like that.

I became a jivanmukti at age 26.

Also just to clear things up i stopped hanging out in the discord channel with that crazy chanting guy (from /x/, if I remember correctly), and i stopped believing that I am some kind of "chosen one". Currently researching the Grail cycle (like i mentioned previously) after having read twice Evola's "Mystery of the Grail" i felt like diving into Wolfram's version of the tale and it is a true wonder to read.

Oh, so you're not even worried about losing your progress on the cycle of rebirth, you're one of those ultra-neurotics afraid of losing his progress billions of years from now. ok.

Here's my take on that. What has been revealed to us is merely all the we can comprehend, or all we need to know on this leg of the journey. Someone who attains perfection is said to, among many other things, transcend time itself. This could be interpreted as a confirmation that in your process of growth you can escape the reset of the universe at the end of this kalpa.

This is a cosmology where the universe isn't merely cyclical, but comprised of many fractally nested cycles, where attaining perfection in one cycle leads you into a new class of universe, Where, once again, all beings have infinite cycles in which to grow and ascend to the next universe.

What the hell do you mean by "flunk their initiation." Besides, it doesn't seem you understand Guenon, since esoteric knowledge isn't to be found in simply reading le cool exotic books and delving into European occult charlatanism, but rather in devout orthodox practice. I love Guenon, but I usually detest the people who read him and that think Esoterism should be for everyone; that is the exact opposite of what he says. Narrow is the way, and pearls are not to be cast before swine. If you don't have a spiritual father to guide you in the practice of metaphysical realization, you are just going to be deluded at best, and become schizo at worst. I say this, not just to you, but to myself and everyone in this thread. Too many people fail to see the entirety of what Guenon's thought entails.

You are so hopelessly beyond help if you think watching a guru on youtube and practicing on your own will allow you to attain moksha. The entire purpose of a guru or spiritual father is to discuss your personal process, not some step by step guide. Spiritual development isn't like following a recipe book. You clearly have not read Guenon's perspectives on itiation and and going down the path of psuedo-initiation that he describes in the Reign of Quantity. If you don't have exoteric supports and are trying to jump right into the highest metaphysical teachings in Hinduism, there is nothing I can say at this point that would come close to even beginning to convey the stupidity in doing such a thing. Humble yourself and begin to process of purification before any metaphysical ventures. "Munda Cor Meum" as it is said in the west.

You are describing esoterism like it's some child's play with no risk involved. You want it to be all good things with no personal sacrifice or triumph over the bodily passions.

>he still created

You have no idea what Brahman is, do you?
It is not anthropomorphic nor is it creative in the sense of a carpenter.
Everything always already was, is and will be, and everything is Brahman.
It's just not, no matter how much you try, not a Father God with a beard and a rulebook.

Objective truth.
And what praytell of needless suffering if reincarnation be untrue? Ironic how a religion of love creates an entire caste of slaves.
I'm merely anthropromorphosizing for poetic effect. Even so especially if reincarnation be untrue it's ironic how a religion of love and unity can be supported by an underclass of slavery. Such is more Straussian than I expect from a sage...

Just brain chemicals. Were they different the worst task could be heaven. Try ecstasy then realize some people are just naturally like that. It's not the world that is hell, just bad luck.

There are no souls to transmigrate and no bodies to migrate into.
There's no you to be injured by any other things.
There's numerically only one thing, including null. There's appearances. Like how you get invested in a movie and forget yourself and feel the story as if it were your own experience. Only when you snap out of it, there is no you.
Good/Bad, Pain/Pleasure, these arrangements are polar. To make that clear, on a magnet there are two ends, but they are not separate, they are the extreme ends of the same object.

I can freeze water, thaw it, make it into steam, but despite these very different appearances and activities, it's fuckin h2o.

Similarly, you have a book, when you read it, the characters exist in a world with linear time as you imagine it. But all the time every action always already happened, no matter what the characters think in the story. It's all you in play starring yourself as all the characters and events and places.

Very. I feel a deep connection to the humans I talk with, if not more distant ones. (Which is probably a slight excess amount of oxytocin, which I'll have to tune down. ) I end most days exhausted and sore, having sacrificed bodily and my pleasure for the sake of others. But I am fulfilling my obligations to the universe as I understand them, so this is not a repugnant conclusion but honorable duty.

Come on, dude. The Traditionalists had some interesting stuff to say but to say that anything of any real significance came out of them... There was some Evolian-inspired terrorism in Italy and a weird little overeducated cult that had no problem rubbing their daughters' and wives' chests against Frijthof Schuon's wrinkled penis. Guenon was the most interesting and insightful of all of them, but the you can't just gloss over the fact that a lot of what he wrote about was based on misunderstandings. Cool guy, but he's hardly the final boss of Western philosophy. He's just obscure and weird.

Nice painting btw. What do you mean that it made you schizo? What are the symptoms and effects? I have been reading now and then some occult/trad knowledge (Guénon) for 5 years and I feel perfectly fine, apart from muh depression. It probably helps that I talk about it to a group of friends every week end. But its true that in the beggining I had a weird phase. It happened when I started reading some Lovecraft; i started to see Nyarlothopet in my dreams and shit was getting weird in my house for a couple of days.

Sufism is heavily on predicted the Quran and the Hadith which they cite constantly in all of their most important writings as the basis for their ideas and claims. That there was some sort of esoterism from the beginning is also supported by evidence from the Hadith such as: 'I have memorized two kinds of knowledge from Allah's Apostle . I have propagated one of them to you and if I propagated the second, then my pharynx would be cut' - Abu Huraira, Sahih al-Bukhari 1:3:121
