“… Let’s be honest, there’s a lot to hate, especially from fundamentalist perspectives… It’s hard to break out of it and once you do, you violently oppose it because you recognize that you were under a spell… I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know where to go and directly from there, I went into a drug binge in which I was trying to bury my feelings… But, what I’ve found is whatever you want to call ‘God’ it’s much bigger than the things that are in these little books…”
You know those beautiful and rare occasions where you speak to someone for the first time and find that your personal philosophies seem to line up almost completely? For me, Author and fellow Disinformation contributor Gabriel D. Roberts was one of those people. It was exceedingly simple to cut right through the bullshit and get to the meaty, existentially significant heart of the conversation. He shared some deeply personal anecdotes about shunning his fundamentalist upbringing, a transcendent psychedelic experience that changed his life forever and how he and his son have become a dynamic remote viewing duo (you can listen here).
In his latest book, the Quest for Gnosis (go buy it), Roberts chronicles his eclectic conversations on spirituality with counterculture intellectuals like Graham Hancock, Rupert Sheldrake, Daniele Bolelli, Dr. Rick Strassman, Disinfo’s own Matt Staggs and many more.
