Psychedelic Nature

“We can begin the restructuring of thought by declaring legitimate what we have denied for so long. Lets us declare Nature to be legitimate. The notion of illegal plants is obnoxious and ridiculous in the first place.”
—Terence McKenna

How are any plants illegal?

They come from the Earth, like water.

Psychedelic Beliefs

“My technique is don’t believe anything. If you believe in something, you are automatically precluded from believing its opposite.”
—Terence McKenna

This technique Terence speaks of is Zen-like.

It remains open to all things.

& in being open to all things, all things are opened to them

Psychedelic Dreams

“The imagination is the goal of history. I see culture as an effort to literally realize our collective dreams.”
—Terence McKenna

So where do we begin?

We begin where we are.

Meditation practices are one of the best ways to get into the collective zen mind.

The higher collective.

And from this sacred space the answers arise naturally.

Together.

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

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.

Psychedelic Consciousness

“Before they were called psychedelics they were called consciousness expanding drugs. Well if there’s any possibility that that’s true, let’s put our best people on it because consciousness is what we’re dying for. We don’t have enough of it. We can’t feed the hungry, we can’t manage a global economy, we can’t hold down guerrilla warfare, we can’t cure aids, we need to get smart! And if this stuff has anything to do with getting smart on any level, even for one in a thousand of those who use it, pour it on! We can’t stand around like a bunch of nitwits just watching the planet burn down around us.”
-Terence McKenna

There’s not much needed to add to this quote.

As a result, legalize psychedelics. Especially psilocybin mushrooms. 

Please & thank you✌️😎🍄✨

Psychedelic Imagination

“Psychedelics as a catalyst to the human imagination.”
-Terence McKenna 

Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge, and if this is true would it be safe to say that we should all be learning & cultivating imagination?

I think so.

Maybe one day there will be a class called Imagination.

^& classes like this will likely be inspired by psychedelics.

The Living Psychedelic Spirit

“Somehow the living spirit has to be brought with us. And this is really the high task for shamanism.”
-Terence McKenna

Here’s how I view this:

The task of shamanism is to connect people, humanity, all of us, individually & collectively, to our soul selves – our higher selves.

& our higher selves are very much alive, possibly in a dimension beyond, yet connected with this physical world.

Ram Dass calls this place “Soul Land”

& I think it’s real.

Psychedelic Optimism

“It’s very hard for people sometimes to figure out whether I’m an optimist or not. Let’s get something straight here. I am the most optimistic person you have ever met. I’m absolutely convinced that there is nothing wrong, and that nothing can go wrong, and that nothing will go wrong, and that if something needs to be done you will find yourself doing it.”
-Terence McKenna

It may be hard to believe that everything that happens in life is perfect, because reality often doesn’t match our expectations, but I agree with Terence that nothing is wrong. 

I not only agree with Terence but have experienced this realization multiple times – my first time being during my first psilocybin trip. 

It’s an experience that transcends human suffering (temporarily) showing you (it showed me – it was a feeling – a whole body feeling, that everything is perfect. It wasn’t words – it wasn’t a thought, it was a whole body knowing, a connection. I was connected with something completely, and it was complete bliss. Total understanding. Total joy.) 

yea, it can show you that, but it doesn’t happen for everyone.

It’s an alien-type experience – at least in comparison to today’s standards of living.

& although it’s alien to many, it’s real, & it’s a beautiful experience — Feeling that everything is perfect.
