Psychedelic Drugs

“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.”
—Tim Leary

The word “psychedelic” here means soul-manifesting.

There are specific psychedelic drugs like psilocybin mushrooms, lsd, mescaline, ayahuasca, & others, but if we are talking soul-manifesting then others belong in this list.

& it’s probably different for everyone.

Marijuana is definitely soul-manifesting.

What drug is soul-manifesting for you?

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.

Psychedelic Bridges

“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”
—Isaac Newton

Imagine new profound connections.

This Newton quote is true both for ourselves individually within & for our world society.

I think this process begins within us as individuals – accepting & embracing who we are, as we are, & others as they are – without wanting or trying to change them or ourselves.

It’s when we build bridges within ourselves that we are able to build bridges with others & with life.

Psilocybin mushroom research has shown that ingesting psilocybin mushrooms increases neural plasticity & connections in the human brain.

It somehow builds bridges between normally closed connections within the brain’s hemispheres.

These connections open communication between the brain’s hemispheres, creating bridges where there were only walls before.

Psychedelic Oceans

“What we know is a drop, what we don’t know is an ocean.”
—Isaac Newton

Psilocybin guides me into this realization – that what each of us knows, even if it’s the most knowledgeable person, is a drop of knowledge in a limitless vast ocean of undiscovered knowledge.

And this realization is far from depressing – it’s ecstatically exciting knowing, as Einstein said: “We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.”

Psilocybin mushrooms as well as other good psychedelics & drugs can & should be utilized to access portals of alien knowledge.

Psychedelics combined with meditation practices are a great starting place.

The 7 Psychedelic Meditations can help you begin.

Going Within

“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

Psilocybin mushrooms is really a journey toward your self.

It’s a journey you take only if you truly want to know who you are.

It’s a journey beyond and within the mask of our egos we all wear so fittingly.

It’s a journey to your Soul.

The Atman.

Your real self.

Psychedelic Exploration

“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.”
—Terence McKenna

Continue doing yourself & the world a favor by exploring & bringing back new ideas to share with our world.

Thank you

The Psychedelic Self

“Make the most of yourself…for that is all there is of you.” 
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote inspires me to not compare myself to anyone else. It inspires me to express myself – to express just me, and not try to express anyone else. Because I, just like everyone else, am unique, and should express MY self. My art. My song. My writing. My philosophy. And that I should never ever ever try to be like anyone else.

^that is, I should continue doing what I’m doing, except even more so, as I hope you do the same. 

Thank you Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Psychedelic Research

Play is the highest form of research.” 
― Albert Einstein

Why do some of the greatest inventions & innovations come by accident?

It is because the innovator was playing & accidentally created or stumbled upon something of worth.

For example, Albert Hofmann accidentally created LSD while he was looking to synthesize a chemical compound for respiratory & circulatory stimulation.

This type of research can be integrated into any type of work and I think we will see a lot more of it in the upcoming years through Virtual Reality. 

Making work fun to improve our work.

Now that’s a good idea.

Psychedelic Art

“The painter has the Universe in his mind and hands.”
— Leonardo da Vinci

Why does some art remain timeless while other art fades in time?

It is because of this – because the painter has the Universe in their mind & hands. 

They have experienced the Universe in a unique & vast way & are driven with a joyful desire to share & express their experience through art.

One of the reasons this type of art is timeless is because it is truly selfless, yet it may have taken years & many failures before this type of creation.

Either way, we are all thankful for it.

Psychedelic Silence

“We’re fascinated by the words — but where we meet is in the silence behind them.” 
― Ram Dass

This Ram Dass quote reminds me of this Terence McKenna quote:

“There is a transcendental dimension beyond language…It’s just hard as hell to talk about!” 

There is a place beyond words where every Soul is welcomed & loved unconditionally.

It’s beyond ego. 
Beyond biases. 
Beyond the past.
Beyond the future.

It’s within the present moment. 

The true present moment, which is always right now.

To get there requires practicing meditation. 
Practicing letting go.
Practicing forgiving.
Practicing not judging.
Practicing seeing the Soul self in others & within ourselves.

And from this present moment – where & when we meet in this place beyond words, real magic is possible.
