Psychedelic Depth

“It is not the length of life, but the depth.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is something in your life that you’ve been waiting for?

Something to do. Something to change. Something to experience.

And why wait?

Something my psilocybin experiences taught me were to dream, believe in my dreams, & act toward my dreams every day, starting today.

& Now, every day is “today.”

My preference may be different from yours, but I prefer quality over quantity.

To each their own!

Psychedelic Self

“I must be myself. I cannot break myself any longer for you, or you…If you can love me for what I am, we shall be the happier. If you cannot, I will still seek to deserve that you should. I will not hide my tastes or aversions…”

“Live no longer to the expectation of these deceived and deceiving people with whom we converse.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you’re a mushroom, be a mushroom.

One of the problems with humanity today is that humans have forgotten how to be human. They have lost connection with their intuition & have become artificial beings – living to fit in with other artificial beings – never experiencing life beyond artifice.

One of the main benefits of a true psychedelic experience is that it’s a very real experience – & whether you have a “good” or “bad” trip, it will be one of the realest experiences you’ll have in your entire life.

After ingesting psychedelics, there’s no going back. You can only go forward.

Here’s a short guidebook with lots of integration activities for your psychedelic travels: The Psychedelic Trip Journal

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 Living

“We are always getting ready to live but never living.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

One of the key characteristics of the true psilocybin experience is the experience of being completely pulled into the present moment so much that you lose your mind — that it to say — your thinking mind is nowhere to be found & you all of a sudden experience this moment without words & ideas.

It is an experience of being completely present with this moment here & now. 

Thoughtless. Mindful. Meditated. Whole.

And from this moment, epiphanies of all sorts flow into your entire body, mind, spirit & soul. 

So much so that it at times feels like alien communication.
