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.
