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 Consciousness

“Culture is a plot against the expansion of consciousness.”
—Terence McKenna

Psychedelic consciousness goes in, out, & beyond the ordinary human consciousness. It takes us to & into the doors of perception, like Huxley spoke of.

And if we as humanity know of these genius tools & resources, why would culture ever try to stop them? To control them? To bring them down?

Culture, which is shaped by people in power, continues to live for more power, not to empower, as empowering is the psychedelic way.

But the 1% – the people with financial power who don’t ever work & don’t care about anything other than themselves – they don’t want an expansion of consciousness because they are so stuck in their ego. 

If they woke up one day though, like actually woke up – after ingesting 3.5 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, they would actually perceive that it is beneficial for themselves & for all of humanity to increase & expand our consciousness.

They would see that this is not only beneficial but it is necessary if we are going to solve major problems we all currently face as a species.

So far I see some progress, but still very little.

Like HOW are plant medicines illegal?!?!?

^This is completely absurd. So absurd that I really have no words about this…it is INSANE!!!

^But this is a result of the people in power wanting more power – & they do this by trying to control people. & they don’t want people experimenting with their consciousness because then they might not be able to control them…

I know my choice.

I choose freedom.

And it’s up to each of us, as individuals, to make this choice, to empower ourselves & empower others as we work toward a better tomorrow for all.

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.

Psychedelic Inspiration & Dreams

“I connect the psychedelic dimension to the dimension of inspiration and dream.”
-Terence McKenna

When was the last time you felt inspired?

Like truly inspired…

Think about it.

Take a second…

Or take a few.

And if it’s been awhile, so long that you can’t remember, then maybe it’s time to try psychedelics (in a safe & legal setting)

My psilocybin mushroom experiences always inspire me in the deepest of ways – & I only macro dose 2 or 3 times a year – that’s where some real inspiration can be sparked – with a macro dose of psilocybin.

Micro dosing is okay, you’ll feel some light effects, but macro dosing can take you places you never thought existed. 

Macro dosing can get you to dream again…& not just any dreams, but dreams for the collective consciousness, for the whole.

& it’s beautiful.
