The magic of mushrooms

2 years, 4 months ago

And then when it started about half an hour later,
We are all shining bright, our existence just greater.
Like our childhood, when the world was full of delight.
We could be birds on a flight,
Or just dance round and round under the fan
No questions like why? No notion of when.

Outside, the trees, few, had turned again
To forests wild and large, that once had been.
(And the night sky was full of dreams), of slow shooting stars and a shiny train,
The kind of dreams that the human race had never seen.

And then I left the rest and got on the shiny train of thoughts
Away I went, to a far off land, where everyone’s free.
Where the physical and material give way to consciousness and thoughts,
And the need for companionship and attachment had just left me be.

And I was blissful and happy, happiness of the kind about which I’d just read,
My person, kam, krodh, lobh, moh and maya were as good as dead.
And from one thought to another I dreamt through dreams,
Like in green islands with little hills, from which flow clear as crystal streams.

@srprogression09, And did your ‘kam, krod, moh, and maya’ remain dead?

Real nice, man. I love the gradual progression from observing the outside wonders to the deep rooted introspection. Real, real chill.

@srprogression09, heh well, I expected as much. Psychedelics aren’t the way to ultimate truth — they’re just fun, mind experimental drugs. Freedom from lust, anger, pride, and the illusion isn’t as easy as ingesting a magical substance. Good poem though. I may post some literature I wrote in the psychedelic state as well.

Everyone needs to eat mushrooms. Your mom, your sister. And your dog old blue

@vivekhash345, Well even a glimpse of the higher levels is not something petty. most of us would go through our lives without experiencing it, and go on ranting about how psychedelics are bad drugs and stuff. You and i are lucky people to have had the experience. :D

@srprogression09, True, but we should try to learn from them and work towards the higher states without their help. The shaman took psychoactive drugs only after he had learned to alter his mind through other methods, and he would quit them after he had learned something from them. On psychedelics, Allan Watts once said, “When you get the message, hang up the phone.”

I’m gearing up for a solo trip soon and I really don’t know what to expect, but I am confident the experience will be extremely enlightening.

Anyone out there PREFER to trip alone?

@srprogression09, beautiful poem, sounds like you had a great experience :) I’ve had some wonderful experiences on psychedelics too and use these in both my meditations to build on emptiness and interconnectedness, as well as simply remembering them when I’m in ‘real life’, that nothing I experience is as solid or real as it appears :)

@lytning91, i started off with my friends, but after a certain point, i started feeling a total disconnection with everyone in the house. the feeling I was getting was who are these people to me? i thought about even my parents and girlfriend still didn’t feel any connection, but i was nice to everyone and smiling, this is the most important lesson i learnt from shrooms, like i mentioned, the freedom from moh and maya. coming back to the point,i left the company of my friends after the initial phases, and tripped alone and that was the best part of my trip.

@srprogression09, Hmm.

See, I am definitely the type of person to be introspective to the point of distancing myself from those around me. I think it can have really great pros and cons, but to increase the magnitude of it all with shrooms seems a tad daunting, even for someone who considers himself to have a large amount of resolve and stability. Not to say that I am overly restrictive…I think I just have a high tolerance for dipping my toes in the water.

I’ve got some stuff stashed away and am awaiting the right time, as I said, but I am thinking this will be my dive into the ocean.
