for those that have never explored psychedelic chemicals and/or plant-life, the impressions gleaned from others (especially those twisted by media groups and scientific/government/military minds) can seem terrifying. tales of lost personalities and claims of 'mental disturbance' that last way beyond the initial experiences are often labelled as problems rather than opportunities. in some cases 'spiritual gurus' have further confused the situation by making such claims as 'the ego is false' and 'must be destroyed', thus making these experiences seem beneficial when they are not entirely beneficial in the way that is claimed.
i desire here to add my own explorations to the 'record of human exploration' by beginning with the following ideas:
so with these ideas in mind and with a heart that is in communication with a living will that feels; the experiences of many who have been labeled as 'psychotic' after exploring with lsd (and/or others chemicals) can be seen to be results of unnecessary 'forcing' open aspects of self (creating a kind of 'psychic shock'), mixed with the revealing of issues which already existed with or without the chemical 'tools' being present. we are, after-all, living with vast numbers of groups and individuals on planet who have differing beliefs, errors, truths and intents; reaching agreements about what is functional and what is dysfunctional has so far not been common, even for the most important questions in life. therefore, our paranoia, phobias, unprocessed emotions and low levels of compassion and love provide massive potential for further triggering and abuses by those who maintain the belief/thought/behavior patterns that suppress and deny truths; often in the name of *insert establishment organisation, philosophy or religion here*.
the path to healing and genuine loving enlightenment requires the recognition of the truth of the causality of suffering and the allowance for its ending and in that there must be the realisation of our errors and the injustices we ourselves have caused, believing we were 'righteous' and 'doing the right thing' - those who have suffered in prison cells or worse for simply ingesting plants or laboratory synthesized chemicals are among those to whom society owes a huge apology and i, for one, desire a rapid realisation of these truths by all. the stakes are much higher than almost anyone has yet realised.
may we all know unconditional love and live truth.
