LSD’s “Psychotic Behavior”

“LSD is a psychedelic drug which occasionally causes psychotic behavior in people who have NOT taken it.”
-Timothy Leary

I personally have taken LSD a handful of times.

LSD is cool for sure, but I prefer psilocybin mushrooms, although they do share some similarities.

One similarity they share is that for some odd reason – other people – people who have never taken LSD or psilocybin or have smoked pot – they get “worried” and “concerned” about those who take psychedelics, like Tim Leary said in the above quote.

It makes other people go crazy for two main reasons.

1-they fear the unknown

2-they are cemented in their ego beliefs – which is extremely limiting & reminds me of this John Lennon lyric: “you’re just a human, a victim of the insane.”

Those people who never experiment with their consciousness – mostly out of fear, become insane because of their constant identity with their ego, who they think they are. This leads to racism, sexism, & all the negative -isms that separate us, rather than unite us.

The ego literally becomes just a reaction to its external stimuli – & it never grows into Soul. It never grows up. 

Well, it’s time to grow the fuck up.

Share this with people who love psychedelics, & with those who need to grow the fuck up.

Ken Kesey & The Merry Pranksters

Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, was a leader of The Merry Pranksters along with his best friend Ken Babbs.

Before Kesey was an author, he was a student at Stanford University – & while he was there, in 1960 he voluntarily participated in a military experiment testing the effects of mind altering drugs. He was given LSD & it changed his life forever, in incredible ways.

Alfredo’s Psychedelic Reflection

Below is Alfredo Avalos III’s reflection on his psychedelic experience.
All good, but I bolded some of my favorite sentences!
Enjoy.

You know a trip is just like any other physical trip you take.

Whether it’s the beach, a cruise, or shrooming in your backyard with a few friends. The trip will always be what lies within your own mind & soul. Whatever that may contain. Whether good or bad remains lingering, be certain of all contents in your carry-on. Cause any baggage you must bring, will be what is worn and on display during your stay. If you bring a nervousness or a worrisome mind, buckle up and wish you had left them all behind. 

You can deny yourself of the hurt in your mind, but when you’re shrooming, you will start to respect why you and all emotions need to coexist in smiles & cries. We neglect them as we hide, but they’ve been the essence from inside that leads our compass to determine which thoughts are to be left behind in life and which are to hold tight as we carry on for lighter life. 

These thoughts & feelings are the driving force that fuels the entire course of the trip, so if you’ve forgotten your respects at home, you’re in for a bumpy ride. 

Don’t deny the driver of its sight, especially when it’s also the decider of what is right in your mind. It will see you for all that you are. For whatever is lacking, will more than likely, be confronted in your journey. 

Even A bad trip has its good moments. At the very least, you get a humbling story that reminds you to laugh at yourself when you’ve made mistakes. 

Your friends will be sure to remind & enforce it whenever possible. 

Decide for yourself as to why You needed to go on both rides a second time. That ride that you never thought was for you, was actually what was missing, & all that you needed most. 

There’s beauty in those trips, and never was I the same person that had first approached-stumbling, without sight, thinking he knew how to make the best of his life..Maybe you’ll get it someday.
