God and His Shadow

For the last few thousand years our existence has been explained by metaphysical constructs, truths that lie hidden behind the appearances, everlasting ideas beyond what our senses can see and hear. The philosopher Plato, with his famous allegory of the cave, stated that appearances are intrinsically false, things aren't as they appear to be, and the only way to get to truth was to venture deep in the rational realm, far away from anything living and breathing...

A Treatise on Psychedelics Pt. 2/3: The Mystical Experience

Where are the liberating effects of these plants and chemicals to be found? Of course in the consciousness of their users and the technologies and wisdom it produced. But outside these well-known facts there is a less known revolution going on.

The True Nature of Happiness

Ultimate happiness is a tricky mistress, always hanging just around the corner with promising smiles and wiles. Or at least it seems this way until you realize that...Happiness does not come from a state, but from a change of state.In other words, happiness does not come from the prize, but in the process of attaining that prize. It's a journey, not a destination.Once that end goal is achieved, the satisfaction quickly degrades until we're left looking for the next high.You might be thinking - but WHY? Why does everything so rapidly lose its luster?

50 Life Secrets and Tips Pt. 2

Exaggerate your compliments If you're going to say something nice, why not make it a bit nicer? Only you will know the difference and the target of the compliment will feel that much better.Forget about insults entirely (even in jest) We can all agree that nothing good comes of insults. If they are serious, then someone comes out of the exchange feeling cut down. Even if you insult someone jokingly, their subconscious mind still takes your words in as a serious statement and imprints the insult on the person. This is akin to a commercial: it can seem stupid, but you are still building up respect for the product on a subconscious level. This is why companies pay top dollar just to have their logo visible in public places.Investigate what is known about death What do you know about death? You certainly have beliefs around it, but what do you know about the science of death, or of those who have died and been brought back to life? Death is not as big of a mystery as it is made out to be. Do your research before you fear or misconstrue this most universal human experience.
