“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.”
—Terence McKenna

Continue doing yourself & the world a favor by exploring & bringing back new ideas to share with our world.

Psychedelic Consciousness

“Before they were called psychedelics they were called consciousness expanding drugs. Well if there’s any possibility that that’s true, let’s put our best people on it because consciousness is what we’re dying for. We don’t have enough of it. We can’t feed the hungry, we can’t manage a global economy, we can’t hold down guerrilla warfare, we can’t cure aids, we need to get smart! And if this stuff has anything to do with getting smart on any level, even for one in a thousand of those who use it, pour it on! We can’t stand around like a bunch of nitwits just watching the planet burn down around us.”
-Terence McKenna

There’s not much needed to add to this quote.

As a result, legalize psychedelics. Especially psilocybin mushrooms. 

Please & thank you✌️😎🍄✨

Psychedelic Culture

“The introduction of LSD and psychedelics into the culture produced a transformation of the entire culture, the consciousness of the culture.
– Ralph Metzner

No need to add to this quote.

It’s still true.

Psychedelic Consciousness

“Culture is a plot against the expansion of consciousness.”
—Terence McKenna

Psychedelic consciousness goes in, out, & beyond the ordinary human consciousness. It takes us to & into the doors of perception, like Huxley spoke of.

And if we as humanity know of these genius tools & resources, why would culture ever try to stop them? To control them? To bring them down?

Culture, which is shaped by people in power, continues to live for more power, not to empower, as empowering is the psychedelic way.

But the 1% – the people with financial power who don’t ever work & don’t care about anything other than themselves – they don’t want an expansion of consciousness because they are so stuck in their ego. 

If they woke up one day though, like actually woke up – after ingesting 3.5 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, they would actually perceive that it is beneficial for themselves & for all of humanity to increase & expand our consciousness.

They would see that this is not only beneficial but it is necessary if we are going to solve major problems we all currently face as a species.

So far I see some progress, but still very little.

Like HOW are plant medicines illegal?!?!?

^This is completely absurd. So absurd that I really have no words about this…it is INSANE!!!

^But this is a result of the people in power wanting more power – & they do this by trying to control people. & they don’t want people experimenting with their consciousness because then they might not be able to control them…

I know my choice.

I choose freedom.

And it’s up to each of us, as individuals, to make this choice, to empower ourselves & empower others as we work toward a better tomorrow for all.

Psychedelic Evolution

“Even as the nineteenth century had to come to grips with the notion of human descent from apes, we must now come to terms with the fact that those apes were stoned apes.”
-Terence McKenna

Scientists can’t confirm with 100% accuracy that humans are a product of evolution.

But that is what many of them think, and it’s possible

For me, I am not claiming to know. I entertain multiple ideas, like Aristotle.

It’s possible that aliens created us, that we are a product of aliens. But yea, evolution is possible too. & there are more than just two possibilities. There are many.

Anyway, in relation to the title of this post & Terence’s quote, the evolution of humanity may have come from animals who stumbled upon plants that got them high. Really really high. Like psilocybin mushrooms. 

And if we didn’t come from animals, although we as humans are animals – we share a very similar biology to all animals – organs, hair, skin, hands, feet, etc. humans are animals. Get over it.

Anyway, even if we didn’t evolve from apes, we are now at a point where we can observe evolution happening within us, humanity, as we live right now — & that this evolution, at least part of it, is coming from the use of psilocybin mushrooms & marijuana. Other psychedelics too.

What are your thoughts on the stoned ape theory?

& what are your thoughts about aliens?

Comment, and stay cool, friends

LSD’s “Psychotic Behavior”

“LSD is a psychedelic drug which occasionally causes psychotic behavior in people who have NOT taken it.”
-Timothy Leary

I personally have taken LSD a handful of times.

LSD is cool for sure, but I prefer psilocybin mushrooms, although they do share some similarities.

One similarity they share is that for some odd reason – other people – people who have never taken LSD or psilocybin or have smoked pot – they get “worried” and “concerned” about those who take psychedelics, like Tim Leary said in the above quote.

It makes other people go crazy for two main reasons.

1-they fear the unknown

2-they are cemented in their ego beliefs – which is extremely limiting & reminds me of this John Lennon lyric: “you’re just a human, a victim of the insane.”

Those people who never experiment with their consciousness – mostly out of fear, become insane because of their constant identity with their ego, who they think they are. This leads to racism, sexism, & all the negative -isms that separate us, rather than unite us.

The ego literally becomes just a reaction to its external stimuli – & it never grows into Soul. It never grows up. 

Well, it’s time to grow the fuck up.

Share this with people who love psychedelics, & with those who need to grow the fuck up.

Ego & Soul Consciousness

“Life lived in the absence of the psychedelic experience that primordial shamanism is based on is life trivialized, life denied, life enslaved to the ego.”
-Terence McKenna

We all know the ego can be a bitch, but it’s not all bad.

It’s really about balance – the middle way, like Buddha spoke of, but in today’s world we are living in an ego-driven, soul-deprived, mad fucking world.

& the madness is mostly caused by the ego, which is solely concerned with its individual self – & less or not at all concerned with the collective self – which is who we truly are.

It’s no ones fault.

The state humanity is currently in is just a result of the blind ego flow it has been in for centuries.

The ego has crucified & murdered soul leaders ever since the ego took charge. Jesus. MLK jr. John Lennon. Tupac…

In the past 100 years we have seen more Soul leaders than in the past 2,000 years.

This is because humanity is waking up.

We are realizing the price of ego, & are in desperate need of Soul.

& guess what?

Soul is rising.

One way to raise the Soul consciousness in humanity is to legalize psychedelics, specifically psilocybin mushrooms.

What we don’t need is people faking Soul – that will just lead to more bullshit.

What we need is Real Fucking Soul.

This will obviously take time – as humanity is conflicted with a vast number of issues, but I believe it will happen.

Legalize psilocybin mushrooms.

Legalize psychedelics.

And when someone takes too much of a psychedelic, guess what, they won’t die. Although they might experience an ego death – which is where Soul is born.

And the more we all open up about our true psychedelic experiences, the more humanity will heal, along with the world.

Share this message with someone who loves psychedelics.

The Pursuit of Consciousness

“If the words ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.”
-Terence McKenna

Yea that’s me, Psil Silva, happy with this psilocybin mushroom✌️😎🍄✨

Did the founding fathers experiment with psychedelics?

It’s possible. 

What we do know is that many of them smoked marijuana – at least experimented with it, & unlike Bill Clinton, they inhaled it.

How free are we if we are not allowed to experiment with our own consciousness???

^This is a very legit question, as well as a concern – the concern being our freedom being taken from us through crooked & corrupt lenses of perception who are solely concerned about power & control.

…because when we experiment with our consciousness we might see through the societal illusions that blind most people, & we might become free!

… One of the sad things about power & control is that it is driving humanity into destruction. It is self-destructing.

So we need an alternative.

Here I go.

Here we go.

Here it is — psychedelics.

One of the many questions we need to consider as a human species is, “how can we legally provide safe services & substances for people to experiment with their consciousness?”

Ram Dass’s First Psilocybin Trip

“Psychedelics helped me to escape..albeit momentarily..from the prison of my mind. It over-rode the habit patterns of thought and I was able to taste innocence again. Looking at sensations freshly without the conceptual overly was very profound.”
—Ram Dass

Ram Dass, whose birth name was Richard Alpert, was Born April 6, 1931 in Boston, MA.

Here’s a short background leading up to his psilocybin story…

Ram Dass grew up in a middle to high class family and lived life “just like everyone else” — Pursuing all the things that society deemed would make him successful.

He became a Harvard psychology professor, had a nice house, a plane, nice car, and a bunch of “stuff” – lots of material items that made it appear to others he was successful, but it was during his first psilocybin experience that he realized his happiness was actually a facade. 

Let’s talk about Harvard for a moment.

So yea Ram Dass was a professor and in his early years of teaching he became intrigued with this man down the hall named Timothy Leary — Ram Dass said he actually feared Leary a bit – that Leary was the only professor Ram Dass feared because Leary didn’t conform or concern himself with Harvard’s “serious ego-ness.” — with identifying himself superior to others because he is a Harvard professor!

They ended up becoming friends and in the early 60’s Ram Dass flew out to Mexico to meet Leary.  When Ram Dass arrived Leary told Ram that he just learned more in the past 5 hours from taking psilocybin mushrooms than he had previously learned in the prior 15 years of teaching psychology.

There weren’t any more psilocybin mushrooms at the time but Ram Dass was intrigued. On March 6th, 1961 during that year’s biggest snowstorm Ram Dass ingested psilocybin mushrooms with Leary & others at Tim’s house. (which was two blocks away from Ram Dass’s parent’s house)

Some of Ram Dass’s first experience when the psilocybin took effect was panic. He worried that Leary’s dog who had just come in from running around in the snow, was going to die because it was panting heavily. Leary’s son came downstairs and assured them it was ok.

Then as he sat alone in the living room he experienced an internal panic in a way — It was like a peeling away of layers of who he identified himself to be. He saw himself from an ego-less perspective and saw everything he was currently living for but the psilocybin has the effect of peeling all those things away and leaving a person with “nothing” — with just awareness.

Except before Ram Dass got to experiencing that awareness he was worried as all these layers were peeling away.

He wrote: “And what’s clearly going to happen now is that I’m going to be an amnesia case because I’m losing my identity. I wont know who I am.”

His panic increased and said that he wanted to scream, but he didn’t. 

Psilocybin’s effects continued and Ram Dass reached this point..

He said: 

“And I became aware at that moment that although everything by which I knew myself was gone, still there was something in me that was watching this whole process disappear.”

“And I remember jumping up and I ran out into the snow and danced in the snow. And then later I recall going back through the drifts to my parents home around five in the morning and deciding as a young tribal buck that I would shovel the snow in the front and I was shoveling and my parents came to the window and opened the window and said “You damned idiot come in, you don’t shovel snow in the middle of the night.” 

“And I looked up and I heard this voice which was the kind of voice of external sanction to which I had always responded since that’s how I got to be where I was, and I listened to the voice inside and the voice inside said it’s cool if you want to shovel snow, its all right, there’s nothing immoral about that. And I looked up at them and I smiled and I danced a bit of a jig and I went back to shoveling.”

And the window closed and I saw them smiling behind it.”

He goes on saying: “Well now I was presented with a peculiar dilemma, because the next Monday when I had to get up and give my lectures in human motivation – the theory of ego psychology which I was expected to present as a responsible member of the psychological community, I saw, was not adequate to the experience I had had. Because that place that I had gone to, I couldn’t find it in the book. I couldn’t find it in the book anywhere.”

“… And I couldn’t find the words to tell anybody about what had happened and I hid behind what we all got to use quite frequently of ‘This was an ineffable experience. I’d like to tell you about it but it’s ineffable. Sorry.”

Here are some of my favorite Ram Dass quotes:

“You may have expected that enlightenment would come Zap! instantaneous and permanent. This is unlikely. After the first ‘ah ha’ experience, it can be thought of as the thinning of a layer of clouds.”

“We had gotten over the feeling that one experience was going to make you enlightened forever. We saw that it wasn’t going to be that simple.” 

“If you think you’re enlightened go spend a week with your family.”

“In most of our human relationships, we spend much of our time reassuring one another that our costumes of identity are on straight.” 

“A fellow satsang member asked Maharajji how to meditate, he said, “Meditate like Christ.” I said, “Maharajji, how did Christ meditate?”
He(Maharaji) became very quiet and closed his eyes.
After a few minutes, he had a blissful expression on his face and a tear trickled down his cheek. He opened his eyes and said, “He(Jesus) lost himself in love.”

“There’s nowhere to go, there’s nothing to accomplish, there’s no merit. It’s just this, just this.”

“We’re here to awaken from the illusion of separateness.”
