Masters and Houston - The vast feminine Earth Mother fertilised by the Sun Father
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience – Dr Robert Masters and Dr Jean Houston
In one elaborate case the subject – S7 – a housewife in her mid thirties (LSD 150 micrograms), lay down on the grass in a field beneath a bright sun and soon was living out an epic of creation in which she identified with the 'Great Goddess' .
S's experience of this identification began when she first became aware that 'for some time' her body had 'no longer existed in its usual limited form' and that now she was 'one with the earth' upon which she had been lying. As this vast feminine Earth, S then received the penetration of the 'great Masculine Father – the Sun God', and so was fertilised by him.
The effects of this fertilisation were immediate, since S then felt that 'out of the conjunction the world is continuously being born'. 'All of the things of the world' were felt by S to be streaming out of her womb, passing out of her body and into the world.
