Practice Non-Hate

“Haters are all failures. It’s 100% across the board. No one who is truly brilliant at anything is a hater.”
— Joe Rogan

I really don’t have much to say about haters.

Haters are usually people who have nothing good going on in their lives so they shift their focus onto someone or something else – to “take away from the pain of their lives” maybe? 

Or to point a finger at someone else before the finger gets pointed at them…

I don’t know. 

Why do people hate?

Yes, there is a difference between righteous anger & hate, but most hate that we seen on tv or in the news is just hate.

“Nothing can be loved or hated unless it is first understood.”  
—Leonardo Da Vinci

What if instead of quickly judging & hating someone or something, we took time to try to understand it? 

^this is the psychedelic way. 

This is our way.

Psychedelic Art

“The painter has the Universe in his mind and hands.”
— Leonardo da Vinci

Why does some art remain timeless while other art fades in time?

It is because of this – because the painter has the Universe in their mind & hands. 

They have experienced the Universe in a unique & vast way & are driven with a joyful desire to share & express their experience through art.

One of the reasons this type of art is timeless is because it is truly selfless, yet it may have taken years & many failures before this type of creation.

Either way, we are all thankful for it.

Psychedelic Flight

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
— Leonardo da Vinci

Was da Vinci possibly talking about a psychedelic experience??

Because planes & any type of flying machine were non-existent in da Vinci’s time.

Maybe da Vinci ate some magic mushrooms & experienced the mystical, the transcendent, the beyond, or “flight” as da Vinci calls it. 

And yes, similar to da Vinci, the mystical experiences I’ve tasted have created a longing in me to integrate the mystical into my daily life & appreciate those moments when they arise.
