I was asking Alex. Forgot to put the @Alex. But yeah, you can get to psychedelic states and such sober, happened to me several times.
Awesome write up ! I enjoyed this and made me think.
I agree with you on intelligence and emotions.
It makes sense that intelligence/wisdom is connected to emotions, and someone who has experienced a wide array of emotinos have a higher sense of “understanding” and maturity.
See someone who has gone through alot of hardship in life, is usually always more mature, and understanding, and give off a vibe of ‘wisdom’.
alex you are really onto something great here. being really in touch directly with your own emotions. with no intellectual gap between you and yourself. that is the way to go. yay mushrooms. you really did a good trip man. and i love the way you went into it. just watching it , and seeing what brought you up and up and down and down. this is a great achievment alex.
Wow, this writing is perfect. I felt the same way as I was tripping last time, but I don’t get all of that experience until I read your work. It makes sense now. I agree with Eric that if you don’t think about peeing, you won’t have to go to the bathroom at all. I know this because I was thinking that I’m so thirsty, I ended up at the faucet and drink all the water that came out until my friend asked me what I was doing. Then my mind returned.
I am a Buddhist and I practiced it for a long time.
Hopefully, next time I trip, I will try to focus on the meditation like you did and try to share my experience.
Last thing when I was tripping, I felt that everything is exquisite and everything has its own reason to be there.
@Wj that was beautiful how you expressed that.
I wasn’t expecting so much positive feedback. Thanks guys!
Since I’ve had this trip, me and my mom have gotten to connect on a much better level than before. I didn’t even tell her about all of this, but somehow everything almost fixed itself. Even with my stepdad too, who will never ever show his emotions. We were just looking up at the stars and I was just like, “I love you dad, thanks for everything.” and suddenly, emotion filled his face, and it made me quite happy.
Thanks for the great feedback guys. Love you all! :)
Sounds like you took another big step in your journey. That’s great!
Do you trust your emotions as much as you trust your intelligence?
You know how sometimes, when someone is a bit tricky to talk to, people say that you have to “speak their language”? Do you think that you have begun to learn to speak your own language?
Peace and love to you too.
alex that story with your step dad makes me so happy. im really impressed man with the amazing results of your relvalation. this is incredible. for parents the best thing in the world is when their kids say just that. i love you and thank you. it means everything to us! we do try so hard and having kids is not easy.
Stonedragon, I could really tell it meant a lot to them. I connected so well with my parents last night. The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner! I was honest with them about my drug use last night as well. I was originally quitting the weed, but I made an exception last night to smoke with my parents for the first time ever!
that is so great alex to smoke up with them! that is so cool. i always smoke up with my kids., sorry in case any one wonders, they are grown up, 19, 22 and 25. not small kids. i never smoked pot when they were small. i only started again when my oldest son started to smoke up at 18, i stopped when i got pregnant with the first kid. i dont think parents of small kids should be stoned, and not pregnant women either. alcolhol and pot are not good for that.
@Alex, you lucky bastard. I want to toke up with my parents so badly it’s not even funny. Too bad they won’t do it unless it becomes legal : /
What a beautiful moment… Moments.
And also, Brandon.
This question goes out to anyone. Do you think there’s a point when the experiences you have on mushrooms become your normal waking reality (minus the confusion and hallucinations or whatever negative stuff is experienced)? Or do you think there’s a point when you surpass the experiences that mushrooms/psychedelics are able to give?
Lucy came into town today for national ride a bike day- anniversary of the day acid was invented/discovered. I’ll be pretty sure I’ll be back with another post after tomorrow. My friends that took it appeared to be on the level I was when I first tripped, and I”ve always wanted to get back there. :)
This is great.
Awesome! @Alex, you have me excited to dig into my stash again. I’ve taken mushies a couple of times before, but never alone. I’m wanting to try it solo next time around. Any advice?
@hollowinfinity, ok dude check this out. the intense experience its like an internal fight? I know that, then it breaks and you just float uber peace. the membrane around the globe. that ‘breaking point’ is the birth or escape from the cloud of the atmosphere, the ozone layer.
that happened to me too it was an internal struggle like there were two of me I wanted to just scream(i was in the shower by the way lol) but the other part was like no dont do that (mustve been rational thinkning) people dont just scream, you cant, but i want to, but you cant its wierd, but i want to. i ended up screaming the shit out of me while i broke into a million pieces literally thats what it felt like, then i was on the ground (in the shower) and drop raining down on my face my hand was over my ear and the waves of cold ran over my face and the drops felt cold hitting my face, removed my hand, and it was warm again the waves or warm air the warm drops raining. ear covered cold again lol, uncovered hot.
it was then that i realized the nature of this reality lol and i was not of it.
@hollowinfinity, ” I felt as though the meaning of life had always been there, and I was just too fucking stupid to even notice”
Every 6-8 weeks for me… don’t even know if I should take shrooms anymore.
Alan watts: Once you get the message hang up the phone.
I got the message, and they keep calling back. Taking mushrooms would be, I feel, like putting it all on speaker phone. Not sure what to make of it. I’m not content with being done with them, and I’m not content with not being done with them.
@christopherrbrooke, I scream in the shower all the time… in fact the other day I started laughing as loud as I could, on purpose. And then it became necessary, couldn’t control it. Just hysterical laughing. Probably the best morning ritual ever HAHAHAHA!
@ijesuschrist, sounds creepy lol
That sounds like a great time Alex. Mikey, I believe that the psychaledics are just a tool to learn how to reach these levels without them. Like Sasho can.
Brandon, that reminds me of a time not long ago while I was camping and there were these sweet waterfalls that had cut through an enormous slab of limestone. I chilled there for probably an hour there the next day and had a similar experience to yours. And once, I was sitting on my tailgate and a butterfly landed on my foot. I walked around, got in the truck, drove home, got out of the truck, sat back on my tailgate, and then the butterfly flew up and landed on my chest. But it eventually flew away. We were friends..
WJ, you should say more on these forums. I think we could learn quite a bit from you.
have not fully meditated on mushrooms. I ‘ve been around people bugging out most times.
