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.

Psychedelic Failures

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.”
― J.K. Rowling

You failed at something.

You didn’t live up to the expectations others had of you, or that you had of yourself.

And others didn’t live up to your expectations.

And it hurt.

It made you feel weak, but you are strong.

Your purpose is greater than your fears.

And there are people in this world who support and appreciate you as you are.

The best people will come & celebrate with you and me, and whatever is for the others is for them.

People come into our lives for a reason, but not all of them are meant to stay.

The ones meant for your best life will come and stay, even if it’s from a distance. 

You always know they are here. 

And it’s love.

“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.”
― Paulo Coelho

You are loved as you are.

Through your ups & downs.

Through your thoughts & feelings.

Remember, you are loved and appreciated as you are.

Psychedelic Stillness

“Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.”
—Lao Tzu

And these secrets appear in multiple forms of every day life.

But it takes getting completely still to realize the secrets.

And it takes self-discipline & action to embrace your eternal path.

It’s the best choice you can make, and only you can make it.

“I’m the one that’s got to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to.”
—Jimi Hendrix

Embrace it.

Love.

Psychedelic Notes 11/18/21

Really what I want to do is – well one thing I want to do is integrate my mystical psilocybin experiences – to put them in words – & to act on what I learned from those experiences – even when & if people disagree. I can’t live for the opinion of people any more. I mean I can but I don’t want to. I can’t live well like that. 

I need to live my truth. 

& what I have experienced during multiple of my psilocybin experiences were completely unique.

I think it will be better if I stop feeling the need to explain myself – especially to people who are bent on disagreeing with me.

 & that I need to just live it – which I’ve done at times in my life, but I’d like to live what I’ve learned more & more – & one of the main things I experienced during those moments was unconditional love – & that no matter who you are & what you’ve done, you are loved no matter what – who you really are, behind your ego, there is unconditional love. I know people disagree with this, but this is what I experienced & it’s true for me.

& I experienced the Tao – beyond words bliss. 

& some of my favorite experiences deep into shroom trips have been stargazing with friends – they were tripping too. 3.5 grams on trips like this when I was in college & the years after college.

Stargazing though, truly beautiful at the end of a mushroom trip – or in the middle of one too. Shooting stars – this is one of the most magical experiences with or without shrooms. But on shrooms it’s magnified X a lot.

& just thinking about life – contemplating it all – not in a rush to figure anything out, but in a way that genuinely wonders & asks All the questions.

What is life?

Why is life? 

Why does anything exist at all?

Why has it happened like this?

Where are we in the Universe? — or better yet realizing that it doesn’t matter where we are in the Universe, just that we are here now – on this big fucking rock! 

With a hot lava core & all sorts of layers within.

Floating in space!!

That’s fucking crazy.

But people act like it’s no big deal.

It’s a huge fucking deal.

Contemplating the vastness of the Universe while laying down at night looking at the stars with friends.

Seeing the edge of our Milky Way Galaxy & thinking about how there are millions & billions of other galaxies!!!! (the normal human mind can’t comprehend billions of galaxies because it’s so vast & because most people are completely stuck in this planet & don’t care to contemplate the Universe – & that’s okay too, but it’s not for me. I like the out of this world philosophy talk & experiences. & there’s always more to learn & experience. Always. No one person can know it all – ever. I will never claim to know it all because that’s not possible for anyone. 

I will claim my experiences though. 

& some people doubt that aliens exist.

That’s a joke.

Of course they do.

I like philosophizing life. 

It’s one of my favorite things to do.

& I’ve been philosophizing & contemplating life since I was a child. 

It’s been a natural passion & I’m thankful for it.

I want others to experience the mystical too. 

^especially since another realization I had on shrooms was that we are literally One. Our egos make us feel separate so our egos must be a lie. But there also must be something good that can come from our egos since they are very much existent in people. The realization that I am you and you are me. In the literal sense. This is no metaphor or anything like that. This is literal. We are each other. It’s just that our egos have been so cemented to believe otherwise – to believe that we are words & images & whatever else the ego holds on to – that all these things define us, but none of them do – they don’t define our real selves, which is our soul selves beyond the ego. I experienced empathy in this place like nothing I’ve ever experienced before & it was complete bliss. Unconditional love. It was the realization of my Soul self. It was an ego death. & it was beyond words beautiful.

Deep empathy. 

& so when I think about or write about politics – I know that’s my ego talking. Politics is the biggest ego game on this planet, & I just don’t have time for that – it takes away from my happiness so the only thing I can do is leave it to them & trust them – I mean, they are in their positions for a reason. 

But after I experienced unconditional love on my shrooms trips I realized that I can’t hate anyone & that I should never try to change anyone. Because we are all in harmony with the Tao, even when we think we or others aren’t – we still are.

So less talk. More living this. 

Just love. 

Really.

& love is an action – & it can be practiced. 

& it’s something I know I would like to practice more. Because in that place of love is bliss. & it’s completely selfless. So much easier said than done because as humans we have been taught to be inherently selfish — so I think we can possibly change human nature — that “human nature” is possibly a concept we’ve created as a species & it can be changed for the better. 

& yes, I’d like to live well – & idk if that’s my ego or soul talking. idk, but it’s like I still want to be financially free & all that. I still want to eat good foods & enjoy life to the fullest, & that’s okay too. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. 

But I also think that real happiness is beyond all of that – that there are some people who are rich & love it & themselves, but that also there are people who are rich and hate their lives — tell that to a poor person..no don’t do that actually. — the pain anyone in is valid. But yea. More living it. Less talk.

^^other peoples’ lives are not mine to judge — no matter what. Period. 

Really, just love.

Really, just love.

Psychedelic Politics

“Ideology is extremely alien to art. Political ideology I mean. And if you will but notice it is political ideology that has been calling the shots for the last 7 or 800 years. We can transcend politics if we can put some other program in place.
You cannot transcend politics into a void.
And I believe that a world without ideology could be created if what were put in place of ideology were the notion of the realization of the good, the true, and the beautiful, ya know.”
-Terence McKenna

Politics…

Are a part of just about all current organizations…

Politics…

Are the result of the human ego.

And we can transcend politics, but it will take time, focused collaborative efforts, & the use of psychedelic plant medicines, specifically psilocybin mushrooms, to transcend politics.

Ram Dass calls this place beyond politics “Soul Land” & that’s exactly what I’m talking about.

It’s a place of love.

A place where fear is less experienced.

A place of trust.

It’s, as Terence McKenna put it, “the realization of the good, the true, and the beautiful.”

It’s beyond ego while simultaneously recognizing, accepting, & working with the ego within us all.

& it’s a collaborative effort.

Lots of people are already working to create this positive change of Soul origin.

But there are also powerful people trying to keep things the same as usual…

It’s interesting that we are often taught to fear change…

It is fear of change that keeps things the same.

But change is often a catalyst toward a better future.

A future where love is our guide, not politics.

Psychedelic Spirits

“Shamans in all times & places gained their power through relationships with helping spirits.”
—Terence McKenna

They’re all around us.

& not to scare you but, they know what you think…

& to ease your mind — they love you unconditionally.

I’m in contact with these spirits, they teach me, and psilocybin may be one of the main reasons this happened to me.

On that note – it is important to consider what you’re getting into if you choose to try psychedelics.

These spirits may be souls in another dimension, they might be aliens or angels & demons. I have thoughts about it that I won’t get into in this post.

Overall, I think this type of communication is extremely beneficial for humanity. 

Although it is definitely not normal. It’s not anything most(if not all) people in the west know much about, so it often frightens people.

It scares the ego.

& we all know we need more soul & less ego right now.

Inward Reflections

“We have been to the moon, we have charted the depths of the ocean and the heart of the atom, but we have a fear of looking inward to ourselves because we sense that is where all the contradictions flow together”
-Terence McKenna 

One of the main revelations I first experienced on a psilocybin trip is the relation & connection between our inner selves & the external world — that in reality, they are one & the same. There is no separation, but our egos say “yes there’s a big difference.”

^this experience can’t be explained. The only way for someone to understand this is to experience it themselves.

& this experience includes the entire universe — the cosmos, all galaxies, the oceans, the people, animals, trees, nature, all of it.

It reminds me of this Rumi quote:

You are not a drop in the ocean; you are the entire ocean in a drop.”

& I am convinced that this experience is the peace beyond understanding. Convinced. 

Total bliss. Unconditional love. & it can be thought up – it can only be experienced.

Back to the first quote — people can continue looking for answers outside of themselves, or they can choose to finally look inward.

Psychedelics, specifically psilocybin shrooms, can guide people inside themselves…haha…it sounds funny but it’s the most real thing you can experience.

I’m excited to hear about your trip inward.

Here we go✌️😎🍄✨👽❤️
