Listening to a study from (John Hopkins University) being reviewed and talked about on CNN heartens me. The study was to determine if magic mushrooms may be helpful for people who are having psychological stress as a secondary diagnosis the first being terminal cancer. That the hallucinogenic properties of (magic mushrooms) have a healing effect and a spiritual effect that so far (according this study) isn't harmful to ANY of the people in the study. I get sad because to me this is a DUH! Moment, having been encouraged as a child to experiment and then doing so. YES so far I have not EVER had a psychedelic high that was negative or that didn't have a HUGE spiritual element. Mind you I have had a vast network of healers, teachers ,shaman some charlatans and some real who helped and guided me...I am wholeheartedly FOR any tripping one can do. It has helped me tremendously understand that what we see hear and believe is all subjective and completely unprovable. NOTHING is provable REALLY...yes wars are fought over "ideologies" slavery enforced and torture maintained to prove that things are true and still it is FACT that nothing Can really be proven to be true NOT POSSIBLE.
Okay fight me on this...disagree and list all of the lost souls who flamed out doing massive amounts of LSD.
Don't get me wrong abusing anything even chocolate can hurt people...but in a guided sensible space with people of like mind and kindness and with whom one should have complete trust, it is highly recommended that if you can safely TAKE THE DRUGS!
You will not regret it.
Oh sure there are physical potential mishaps I had a friend once have a terrible trip of ecstasy because she was slightly anorexic and hadn't eaten for three weeks and took a capsule at my urging and her system couldn't take the pressure.
Weird, I never knew she wasn't eating till then.
No, you must be healthy and it should be controlled the space...before journeying but never be afraid especially if your circle is experienced and kind and clear.
Oh yes even then things can go wrong but I do believe we all need a peak at something OUTSIDE the frame of our thinking we do NEED to be expanded.
Go, live, love and TRIP...yes try it at least once!
Then tell me all about it,please.
