Psychedelic Tea

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

Whether you drink normal tea or psychedelic tea, enjoy it.

Sip slow.

Breathe.

Taste the tea in your mouth and on your tongue.

Give thanks for the day.

Enjoy this moment, here and now. Forever.

More Psychedelic Knowledge

“We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.” — Albert Einstein

And most people go around living life like they “know it all” and have “seen it all” …

Einstein also said: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

I don’t have much to add to this.

If you think you “know it all” and you think you’re smart, try ingesting a psychedelic drug like 5 grams of psilocybin mushrooms…

You’ll soon see what I mean…you’ll experience new knowledge yourself. Knowledge you never knew existed before (and that & more has already always existed…)

…and you’ll most likely gain some humility.

Psychedelic Communication

“Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.” — Don Miguel Ruiz

One of the main issues in human societies is miscommunications or the inability or unwillingness to communicate clearly.

The main way to resolve this issue is to simply be honest & straightforward about what you want, any expectations you have, etc etc…

One way to NOT resolve this issue is to say nothing & assume other people know what you want & expect.

“People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth and lies.” —Don Miguel Ruiz

Following Your Path

“You do what you do because that’s what the harmony of the universe requires. If I am a potter I make pots.” — Ram Dass

Every life has its own unique purpose in this universe.

One of the goals of your life is to figure out your purpose.

There are many ways to discover your purpose.

One way is to take 3 to 7 grams of psilocybin mushrooms & see what ideas & epiphanies arise within you.

Another way is to try many activities until you discover something you enjoy doing, & then keep doing it until you become a master at it, & then get paid for it.

It is possible to get paid to do something you love, but first you must find your purpose.

“The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everybody should follow any one path. Listen to your own truth.” — Ram Dass

Dissolving Self with Psilocybin

“As you dissolve into love, your ego fades. You’re not thinking about loving: you’re just being love, radiating like the sun.” 
-Ram Dass

I’ve explained the experience of my first psilocybin trip as if it were like I dissolved into the external world & became completely one with it.

How do I explain the experience of leaving my body? haha… it’s truly ineffable. It can only be experienced.

But to try — it’s an out-of-mind & out-of-body experience. It’s total trust in life, because you become one with life. There are no thoughts, but there is a feeling. & the feeling is complete bliss. It’s a knowing for certain, without a doubt, beyond thoughts, that EVERYTHING is perfect…The body knows for sure. 

This can be defined as a mystical experience, and for me, psilocybin triggered this. 

This didn’t mean that I was all of a sudden enlightened forever. All it was was temporary enlightenment, but this experience was so life-changing that I spent years working to integrate it into my daily life.

This is also why I created The Psychedelic Trip Journal — For you to integrate these experiences into your life.

But yea, my first psilocybin experience was in 2011 when I was a sophomore in college.

Ten years later, here I am. Integrating my integrations into the world, like so many before me. 

One of the main reasons I am an activist for psilocybin & plant medicine is because they can evoke these mystical experiences, temporary enlightenment, and even if it only happens for one in a million, it’s worth it.

Changing Your Mind With Psychedelics

“You’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind.”
– Tim Leary

Have you ever gotten stupid high?

I have – hundreds, probably thousands of times. If you knew me in college & even in high school, you know this is true haha.

^This was with marijuana.

Side note for the critics – I ran track in college at a division 2 school. I worked out pretty much every singe day & was in amazing shape. Exercise is definitely healthy as fuck & good for all of the body.

But yea I partied like a rockstar too.

The point is, marijuana & psychedelics help change the mind – & not in bad ways. In very beneficial ways.

They help me think critically – to see things not just from 2 different perspectives, but from many many perspectives, & I believe they can do the same for anyone.

They keep my mind open to everything life has to offer & experience.

…& remember, your interpretation of something or someone is not the real Truth. It’s most likely an opinion, super biased & probably fear-based.

The way to get beyond that limiting & destructing way of thinking is to change your mind, & one of the best ways to do this is with psychedelics & marijuana. Exercise too.

Psychedelic Souls

“The future of communication is the future of the evolution of the human soul.”
-Terence McKenna

& how might we do this??

Here’s another Terence McKenna quote:

“It is the imagination that argues for the Divine Spark within human beings. It is literally a descent of the World’s Soul into all of us.”

I am in total agreeance that Soul goes together with the imagination, & that they are essential factors in the survival & evolution of humanity.

Einstein said:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

& it is^^

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

The proper cultivation & integration of human imagination will help develop the human Soul.

Psychedelics, especially psilocybin mushrooms, help connect us with our imagination…until these psychedelic tools are not needed because we’ve integrated imagination into our daily lives…

There are already dreamers among us – those who dream & know the power of the dream.

The dream is growing, & we are growing with it.

Share this message with a fellow dreamer✌️😎🍄✨👽❤️

Be The Hero of Your Novel

“If you’re not the hero of your own novel, then what kind of novel is it? You need to do some heavy editing.”
-Terence McKenna

It’s easy to look outside of ourselves for answers – for someone else to save us. Like Jesus or Buddha, or the government….

haha…

What psychedelics can do, & what they have done for me is they have shown me that my life is my responsibility & that the answers are within.

If we wait on Jesus or whoever to save us, well, it just won’t happen. We need to save ourselves first, put on our life jackets, & then help others put their life jackets on.

Jesus & other spiritual leaders can guide us, truly, their messages & spirits can help us, especially when combined with psilocybin mushrooms. 

But what they really do is they teach us how to live empowered lives.

They show us how to be the hero of our own story, as we are all called to be.

Tim Leary’s Psilocybin Adventures

Timothy Leary was interested in psychology before he was interested in psilocybin.

In 1950 Leary received his doctorate in psychology from the University of California Berkeley. 

He was an assistant professor there until 1955.

In 1959 he became a Lecturer at Harvard University.

In 1960 Leary took a trip to Mexico which was where he first ingested psilocybin mushrooms. 

Regarding this experience, Leary commented:

“I learned more about psychology in the five hours after taking these mushrooms than the preceding 15 years of studying and doing research in psychology.”

In the following years Leary linked up with Richard Alpert – commonly known as Ram Dass, who was also a Harvard lecturer, studying and analyzing psilocybin’s effect on the brain. 

They started the Harvard Psilocybin Project — and at the time, neither Psilocybin or LSD were illegal in the United States.

Leary and Alpert worked on documenting psilocybin’s effects on human consciousness by administering it to volunteer subjects and recording their real-time descriptions of the experience.

They concluded that psychedelics, under the guidance of psychologists/guides, in the right dose and good setting, could benefit people in ways that normal therapy couldn’t.

Two years later in 1962, various faculty members and administrators at Harvard were intimidated by Leary & Alpert’s research. These opposing faculty members termed that they were “concerned” about the safety of Leary and Alpert’s research subjects…

The rigor of this research was also critiqued as unorthodox. This is somewhat understandable because Leary & Alpert sometimes ingested psilocybin as the conducted research. I personally don’t think this would make a significant difference in their research findings — I think they likely had more accurate research after ingesting psilocybin.

The volunteers of this research were graduate students, but in 1963, Ram Dass, who was then Richard Alpert, administered psilocybin to an undergraduate student and was dismissed from Harvard. Leary was also fired at this time and the Harvard Psilocybin Project ended.

This was far from the end of Leary & Alpert. 

Leary moved to Millbrook, New York and continued his psychedelic research. Alpert was also at Millbrook for some time.

Around 1970, the president at the time, Richard Nixon, labeled Tim Leary as “The most dangerous man in America” 

It’s funny how later on Nixon was impeached.

Leary did end up in jail & prison multiple times.

& he actually escaped one time, haha, the time was during his 10-year prison sentence in 1970…

In the years before his prison sentence Leary had designed a psychological test for prisoners and he was given this test in prison.

He answered all the right questions which put him in the most low-security prison possible then ended up escaping to Algeria where he joined the Black Panther Party before one of their leaders attempted to hold him and his wife hostage. Leary and his wife fled to Switzerland.

In 1973 Leary was still on the run but he was arrested and faced 95 years in prison.

He ended up with a 15 year sentence in Folson Prison, California, where his cell was right next to Charles Manson’s cell. They couldn’t see each other but they conversed.

Leary became an FBI informant to shorten his prison sentence. He was released in 1976.

Leary continued lecturing, debating, and writing for the rest of his life.

He even pursued politics at one point and asked John Lennon to write him a song for his campaign. 

Lennon said yea and wrote the song “Come Together” for Leary. What a great song.

The Moody Blues also wrote a song titled “Legend of a Mind” with the main lyrics being: 

“Timothy Leary’s dead..…No he’s on the outside looking in.” 

…Leary was still alive at this time.

Here are a few of Leary’s quotes:

“Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out.”

“Grow with the flow.”

“Think for yourself and question authority.”

“I am 100 percent in favor of the intelligent use of drugs, and 1,000 percent against the thoughtless use of them, whether caffeine or LSD. And drugs are not central to my life.”

Timothy Leary Died May 31, 1996 in Beverly, CA, but his spirit lives on.
