Magic Mushrooms

All praise be to the gods of fornicatin' monkeys!

Normally, I would post this on LiveJournal, but since I pretty much stopped going there when I found this site, it will get posted here.

Upon reading my daily news, I came upon this article:


[rant]Illicit drugs doing good things for people? Imagine that! These people took Psilocybin in a controlled environment and most of them had a significant spiritual experience. The compared it to the birth of a child or the death of a loved one, very significant events.

Even two months after taking the drug, pronounced SILL-oh-SY-bin, most of the volunteers said the experience had changed them in beneficial ways, such as making them more compassionate, loving, optimistic and patient. Family members and friends said they noticed a difference, too.

Huh, imagine that. Drugs doing good things. Maybe we need to take a stop back in this country, look at the real things that should be illegal, such as wasting $4 billion+ of the taxpayers money to send 2,500+ men and women to die for what? Yeah, we got Saddam, but we could and should have stopped there. What do we have to show for the rest of the time we have been there? People get blown up and killed every day, same as before, only it's still our fellow citizens. Pull out, let them blow each other up for a while. Instead of bullying other countries into thinking the way we do, we should focus on things back here in our country, things that have gotten way out of hand (like congress giving itself a raise every year for the past 10 while failing to raise the minimum wage even once).

Sorry the drug rant turned political, I just have very strong issues with the leadership of this country. Anyhow, aside from being a lot of fun as a recreational drug, this article and hopefully many more to follow show that there are beneficial uses as well for these substances. To finish up this little rant, I'll point out some statistics: roughly 330,000 people in the US die every year from cigarette smoking related ailments, and more than 80,000 die a year due to alcohol. The deaths from all illegal drugs combined times 1,000 might add up the same total, while deaths from something as simple as a little weed are non-existant.

How appropriate, I found this article linked at the bottom of the other one:


Tobacco has the potential to kill 1 billion people worldwide this century. One billion. Maybe you can't comprehend that number. 1,000,000,000. Yeesh. And it's still fucking legal?

Bill Hicks would be proud, were he still with us today. [/rant]

Well... 'Shrooms (as they're called) are hardly "recreational" in my opinion. But I would certainly love to slip all our politicians, military leaders & hardcore prison inmates a healthy dose of MM tea. Especially GW. What people who are unfamiliar with the effects of Magic Mushrooms cannot comprehend is the total disembodiment that occurs (generally). Depending on one's mental state / negative proclivities, this is what explains the "freaking out" response. Many people I believe are totally unprepared emotionally, spiritually and physically, to completely lose one's sense of self in a 3D worldly way. And then you add in the visual effects of geometrics and opalescence and the ability to "see" things and people in completely disorientating ways and you have, as Mal would say, a recipe for unpleasantness. If on the other hand, you are grounded (in more ways than one) you can often experience a sense of the true importance of things, yourself, the world, etc. I myself, was completely rational, calm and objective (as best as that term can apply in that situation) and the experience I had -- while not of the "I'm one with God / Universe" version -- was incredible to say the least. I do not recommend it to anyone without proper preparation and supervision, but I am not sorry in the least for having experienced it. After the 5-hour experience was over (and during it of course) the one singular concept that defined the experience was this: the only thing in life that truly matters or has any meaning or power is LOVE. Everything else is b.s. or illusion or fear or all of the above. And boy, was I ever glad to "feel" things in the real world after that! The one fear I did experience was that I would not be able to leave the state of disembodiment, and that would be an aloneness that I was not ready to feel. But it is just that appreciation for the reality of the world and you in it that makes you see things in a new way. Hustom Smith has a book on the whole pharmacological search for God thing called "Cleansing the Doors of Perception" which is fascinating cuz he covers all the various cultures and uses of psychotropic drugs to instill a sense of divine communion.

Has anyone actually tried watching the series or BDM while stoned? Cuz it would be an interesting experience to find out how one reacts to either when you're tripping out;)

As Timothy Leary said, "Reality is for those unfortunates who can't handle the drugs."

Although I don't condone my own behavior doing mushrooms just makes me happy. Smoking pot is just lovely. I hate hanging with pot heads but a least they never want to hurt anyone! If only the world leaders would sit down and watch some firefly while eating "enhanced" snacks! No one would ever be in danger again! I'm still feeling last night to forgive me if this was supposed to be a joke.

Wow. Using psychadelic drugs to promote a spiritual experience. What a revolutionary idea that has nothing whatsoever to do with any pre-Christian shamanistic culture. [/sa rcasm]
