Psychedelic Maturity

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
—Henry David Thoreau

Here we are, you and me.

Here right now, together, we.

And from here, we can go anywhere, but we must get here first.

Psychedelic Thanksgiving

“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”
—Henry David Thoreau

One of the best human experiences is the feeling of deep gratitude.

Deep gratitude, which is one my favorite experiences on psilocybin mushrooms, goes way beyond thinking about what you are thankful for.

It’s a whole body experience – you can feel it in your bones – you can feel it in your toes, up your legs and throughout your entire body. 

It’s a wholly connection with the Universe.

These experiences have come to me at random times during my macro psilocybin trips, and it’s a bliss beyond compare. 

But speaking of comparison — One way to not feel this bliss is to constantly compare your life to others’ lives. 

Comparison lives in the thinking mind, as do so many other constructs & ideas that easily steal joy from your person.

Gratitude lives in this moment.

Here & now. 

Love.
