Psychedelic Optimism

“It’s very hard for people sometimes to figure out whether I’m an optimist or not. Let’s get something straight here. I am the most optimistic person you have ever met. I’m absolutely convinced that there is nothing wrong, and that nothing can go wrong, and that nothing will go wrong, and that if something needs to be done you will find yourself doing it.”
-Terence McKenna

It may be hard to believe that everything that happens in life is perfect, because reality often doesn’t match our expectations, but I agree with Terence that nothing is wrong. 

I not only agree with Terence but have experienced this realization multiple times – my first time being during my first psilocybin trip. 

It’s an experience that transcends human suffering (temporarily) showing you (it showed me – it was a feeling – a whole body feeling, that everything is perfect. It wasn’t words – it wasn’t a thought, it was a whole body knowing, a connection. I was connected with something completely, and it was complete bliss. Total understanding. Total joy.) 

yea, it can show you that, but it doesn’t happen for everyone.

It’s an alien-type experience – at least in comparison to today’s standards of living.

& although it’s alien to many, it’s real, & it’s a beautiful experience — Feeling that everything is perfect.

Psychedelic Focus

“Newspaper taxis appear on your shore, waiting to take you away…”
– John Lennon

What does it mean to have psychedelic focus?

It means to have empowered focus. Focus that doesn’t give itself away unless it purposefully does so.

Focus that listens, but remains stable within self.

It means not letting newspapers carry your mind away like a taxi — To not give your attention to the bullshit news in the world, & to reclaim your mind.
