Psychedelic Joys & Sorrows

“Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.”
—Joseph Campbell

“Life is suffering” said Buddha, but not all of it is.

And like the weather, joys & sorrows change — they come & go as life goes on.

Joys and sorrows can teach us, and we learn what brings us real joy. 

Once you find it, follow it.

Love.

Psychedelic Drugs

“I am 100 percent in favor of the intelligent use of drugs, and 1,000 percent against the thoughtless use of them, whether caffeine or LSD. And drugs are not central to my life.”
—Tim Leary

The word “psychedelic” here means soul-manifesting.

There are specific psychedelic drugs like psilocybin mushrooms, lsd, mescaline, ayahuasca, & others, but if we are talking soul-manifesting then others belong in this list.

& it’s probably different for everyone.

Marijuana is definitely soul-manifesting.

What drug is soul-manifesting for you?

Psychedelic Nature

“We can begin the restructuring of thought by declaring legitimate what we have denied for so long. Lets us declare Nature to be legitimate. The notion of illegal plants is obnoxious and ridiculous in the first place.”
—Terence McKenna

How are any plants illegal?

They come from the Earth, like water.

Psychedelic Failures

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.”
― J.K. Rowling

You failed at something.

You didn’t live up to the expectations others had of you, or that you had of yourself.

And others didn’t live up to your expectations.

And it hurt.

It made you feel weak, but you are strong.

Your purpose is greater than your fears.

And there are people in this world who support and appreciate you as you are.

The best people will come & celebrate with you and me, and whatever is for the others is for them.

People come into our lives for a reason, but not all of them are meant to stay.

The ones meant for your best life will come and stay, even if it’s from a distance. 

You always know they are here. 

And it’s love.

“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.”
― Paulo Coelho

You are loved as you are.

Through your ups & downs.

Through your thoughts & feelings.

Remember, you are loved and appreciated as you are.

Psychedelic Stillness

“Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.”
—Lao Tzu

And these secrets appear in multiple forms of every day life.

But it takes getting completely still to realize the secrets.

And it takes self-discipline & action to embrace your eternal path.

It’s the best choice you can make, and only you can make it.

Psychedelic Bridges

“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”
—Isaac Newton

Imagine new profound connections.

This Newton quote is true both for ourselves individually within & for our world society.

I think this process begins within us as individuals – accepting & embracing who we are, as we are, & others as they are – without wanting or trying to change them or ourselves.

It’s when we build bridges within ourselves that we are able to build bridges with others & with life.

Psilocybin mushroom research has shown that ingesting psilocybin mushrooms increases neural plasticity & connections in the human brain.

It somehow builds bridges between normally closed connections within the brain’s hemispheres.

These connections open communication between the brain’s hemispheres, creating bridges where there were only walls before.
