Demons are just jesters. They just want you to laugh at the thought that you could ever be separate from the light.

Enjoy the high and ride it out. Listen to trippy music and/or audio books. It will help you through the bad trip. I would chill out on the lsd if you think you have “demons” in your head. Could be auditory hallucinations from the drug use, schizophrenia or maybe electromagnetic welfare.

I’d bet it’s just autocorrect antics.

Maybe they are just misunderstood. Strike up a conversation.

Thank you guys for your suggestions, I’m not quite sure what happened, I’ve never felt such a presence overcome me like that before but I suppose the best thing I can do at this point is to just try to let this experience go and not cling on to it in order to get back in the “now” in order to clear out all the negativity and fear that was put in me, right? I feel a lot better now but I’m definitely no longer in that divine state of joy and bliss that I was at before this trip, it seems as though my ego is starting to take back control of my life, any suggestions on where I should go from here? I’m for sure going to be laying off the lsd for a while..

You’re just making it worse with ideas like that.

The daemons in our heads are just parts of ourselves that we reject. When you do this whole “negativity and ego is baaaaad maaaaan” mentality, you’re just pushing that part of yourself further into the darkness.
It’s not a separate entity, it’s YOU. Your passive self-loathing makes it seem like it’s an alien presence because you don’t want to admit that it’s part of you.

All of this “peace and love in the now, fuck the ego” hippie shit is just raising war and hatred against a very important and fundamental part of yourself.
Don’t do that.

Interesting, but it is my understanding that the ego is one of the biggest causes of fear and we have to learn to dis-identify with our ego in order to get rid of the fear?

Fear is caused by your sympathic nervous system, it’s a survival mechanism.
You can’t dis-identify with your ego, trying to do so actually has the opposite effect.

The whole “ego is bad” craze is just a religious trend, a bunch of fuzzy doctrine preached by loonies. It doesn’t make sense, it has no basis in reality, it doesn’t lead anywhere.
All those “results” people are getting from these beliefs are just results of believing, it’s placebo, power of suggestion. With plenty of crazy side-effects that aren’t necessary at all. It’s so stupid.

Yes, I have to agree. I think people hear ‘ego death’ and assume it means the ending of suffering. Pfft, we exist to suffer, it is just a part of who we are. If we did not suffer we would not bother to push ourselves, whether its running from predators, running after prey (being hungry is quite a powerful force) or having ambitions to become something better.

Many spiritual leaders have the opinion that ‘ego death’ simply means you learn to identity yourself outside of the cycle of suffering. The struggle of self-created stress ends, but it hardly means suffering stops.

Even then, I think ego death is an archetype, something to strive towards that cannot ever be accomplished. Many buddhists have an oath, “The way is unattainable, I vow to attain it”.

I can understand that, although I personally think that if there’s a way to learn to identify yourself outside of the cycle of suffering as you call it, then I think that would be something that you would want to strive for, if we can live fully in the now and not worry about the future or think about the past then we would be completely engaged in the moment which will create our world in our own image at every moment. Sure there will still be moments of suffering because that’s part of life, but if we can live in the complete here and now, wouldn’t life ultimately be a lot more enjoyable and fulfilling? That’s just what I think about it anyways, I’m really into Alan Watts and Tolle’s philosophy at the moment..

Trying to identify with something you’re not is worse than identifying with what you are or at least seem to be. Technically speaking, it’s even psychotic. The more you try to identify yourself with something, the more you push your ego into overdrive.
If you want more peace and presence in your life, identify as little as you can. And don’t make that into an identity either.

Suffering is pretty much self-made. Fear, pain, anger, disappointment, etc… are not things that demand suffering, they are only results of actions. How you deal with them is what determines whether you suffer or not.

“The now” being more enjoyable and fulfilling than ambition or daydreams… well that’s just a matter of opinion. And generally speaking, it’s more about people who have a shitty outlook on things and would rather not think than think well.
This whole “fight the ego in the now” is just a fanatic pitfall, there’s plenty of those on the roads of philosophy and spiritualism. If you find yourself in one of those holes, get yourself out of it, don’t act like it’s the destination.
