Psychedelic Dance

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

Those who are dancing need not explain themselves to those who neither dance nor hear any music in life.

Psychedelic Spending

“I think if we spent the time we spend thinking about not spending money, spent that time on spending money, then it’d be time well spent.” — Darius (Atlanta)

I must agree with this quote from the eccentric philosopher Darius from the show Atlanta.

Sometimes save. Sometimes spend.

But if you always spend your life saving money and never spending, what are you really doing with your life?

How are you enjoying life?

In regards to my books & guides, here is just a fun book filled with 10 challenging & fun psychedelic crossword puzzles…guarantee it will take you days if not weeks to figure the answers to these!! & it’s something fun to spend your money on and to support me and also support psilocybin mushrooms!!

Psychedelic Sight

“To see we must forget the name of the thing we are looking at.” — Claude Monet

God created life.

Humans invented words…For many reasons – one being to describe the indescribability which life is.

Many humans have been conditioned to give names & labels to everything outside of them – & even everything inside of them, but real life is both much more & much less than any human label, any human word.

Real life is beyond words.

On your next trip I encourage you to look at something in nature & don’t label it.

Look at a tree and don’t say “this is a tree,” but just look at it.

Be with it.

Feel it’s energy.

It is much more than a tree.

Give thanks for it & then try looking at more things without labeling them with words.

Psychedelic “Surrealism”

“They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.” — Frida Kahlo

I do the same thing when it comes to writing, creating, living, etc…

All I share, write, create, speak, etc, is all real. All true.

It may seem surreal or unbelievable to many “normal” people, but all I share is true.

I don’t need to argue with anyone about the truth of my creations.

When you know you’re right, you don’t live to prove anything.

You just live & enjoy life.

“I don’t paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality.” —Frida Kahlo

Psychedelic Limitless

“Who would set a limit to the mind of man? Who would dare assert that we know all there is to be known?” — Galileo Galilei

The human ego would probably assert that humans know all there is to be know…

but here is the Good News!!! The death of the proud human ego is near, & a time for the learning of what people thought was impossible, is here.

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.

Embrace it.

Love.

Psychedelic Perceptions

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”
—William Blake

Aldous Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception discusses this experience firsthand — it’s Huxley describing his experience on the psychedelic mescaline.

And it’s one of the best descriptions of the psychedelic experience.

The doors of perception are cleansed and you experience life in the Atman, the Soul. 

You have an out of body experience and still you know without a doubt that you are everything.

The essence of life.

The real you.

Never born, never dies.

Infinite.

Psychedelic State of Mind

“My city and state are Rome-as Antoninus. But as a human being? The world. So for me, ‘good’ can only mean what’s good for both communities.
-Marcus Aurelius

^This quote from the good Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius encompasses what it means to have a psychedelic state of mind.

Albert Einstein said the same thing:

“I am by heritage a Jew, by citizenship a Swiss, and by makeup a human being, and only a human being, without any special attachment to any state or national entity whatsoever.”

Same with the philosopher Seneca:

“I know that my country is the world and that the gods are guardians, those judges of my deeds and words above and beyond me.”

The Psychedelic State of Mind is All-Inclusive. Literally. It has All in mind because it recognizes the humanity within us All.

That we all share many more similarities than differences.

That none of us had any choice whatsoever in where or how we were born.

None of us chose what skin color, gender, height, weight, or any other physical characteristics, but lots of people live life like they made that choice.

They didn’t. 

No one did.

We are all human, and our foundations of bones are all the same.

An extreme example comes from the philosopher Diogenes when asked by Alexander the Great what he was doing. Diogenes responded with: 

“I am searching for the bones of your father but cannot distinguish them from those of a slave.”

This remark at first might seem an insult, but it is far from insulting. Diogenes wasn’t being rude – he was pointing toward the truth of the matter. He wasn’t just telling Alexander the Great what Alexander the Great wanted to hear (as probably everyone else at the time did that) 

Diogenes served as a reminder of Memento Mori — that no matter what position we hold currently, it won’t last.

That physical life is fleeting.

& that our real origin is beyond physical planes of existence.

That our true origin lives in invisible dimensions of spirit & soul, where we are all connected.

This is how the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius viewed life – as a citizen of the world, not as a separate individual.

This is how Albert Einstein perceived his life – as a citizen of this world, not as a separate individual.

These philosophers, geniuses, and emperors were able to perceive life from a higher perspective & see the larger picture, & it made a big difference.

This is what is means to have a Psychedelic State of Mind.

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.
