Psychedelic Danger

“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.” — Voltaire

Around 50-60 years ago when Tim Leary and Ram Dass were sharing the true wonders of psilocybin mushrooms — the U.S. president at the time Richard Nixon labeled Tim Leary “the most dangerous man in America.” (Now I am the “most dangerous” man in the world, not just in America.)

… Nixon later ended up getting impeached from office but not before he was able to make psilocybin mushrooms illegal in America. (Leary and Dass also got fired from Harvard around this time.)

That didn’t stop Ram Dass and Tim Leary from preaching the Good News of psilocybin mushrooms, and now, finally in 2023 we are seeing states in the U.S. and countries all around the world decriminalize and even legalize psilocybin mushrooms for therapeutic purposes.

In some countries it was never illegal, rightfully so as these mushrooms literally come from nature and are medicinal.

How has medicinal nature become illegal over the years??

I think I know why – governments are into power and control; they are not into enlightening people, but here’s the Good News!!

Even the governments are changing, opening up to psilocybin mushrooms and the vast benefits they bring.

Humanity is healing.

Slowly, but surely.

Kingdom Come.

Psychedelic Impact

“To know what people really think, pay regard to what they do rather than what they say.” – René Descartes

Actions really do speak louder than words, but most people still get fooled by the words from fools (especially fools in high places.)

Look less at what people say and look more at the impact they are having.

Words are often deceiving, but the impact we have on this planet and on others’ lives says it all.

If you have a question, ask.

If you want to communicate something with someone, speak.

Assume less.

Act more.

Speak less.

Impact more.

Psychedelic Content

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” – Lao Tzu

It’s easy to look at humanity, societies, etc on this planet and see all that’s wrong with it…

but what if things were actually perfect as they are, and as they are becoming?

Or what if you could at least catch a glimpse of the actual perfection of life?

Enter psilocybin mushrooms with the Real Jesus as a guide.

For extra guidance from an experienced tripper, I recommend The Psychedelic Trip Journal to get you started.

Psychedelic Existence

“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” — Jack London

The Psychedelic Existence is one that is very much alive.

It’s one that lives fully, wholly, rather than existing half-way.

I’m not here to judge others; not here to judge those who only exist and never live.

I’m here to live my life, and live my life I shall.

Psychedelic “Nobodies”

“The game is not about becoming somebody, it’s about becoming nobody.” — Ram Dass

What does it mean to be no one?

It means letting go of your ego; letting go of who you think you are, to find out who you actually are, which is beyond identification, beyond words, beyond achievements and failures, beyond trying to be “someone” and enjoying being no one.

It really is a joy.

& now that I’ve become someone globally known, globally famous, one of my tasks is to become no one again.

Maybe one day you and I can meet in a place beyond the ego; beyond ego games, ego dramas, ego identifications, and we can just be, and enjoy life in the time we have together.

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.


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.
