I 100% DO NOT SUGGEST YOU TRY LSD!!!
There is a VERY REAL CHANCE of PERMANENT psychiatric and psychological damage if not used in a perfect environment with perfect preparation - and EVEN THEN the risk is very real. Plus in most countries it is illegal, with some countries giving you the DEATH PENALTY for possession or use!
Everything I post in this thread is my own story for metaphorical purposes only, which may or may not be embellished, since LSD is illegal where I live and I would never break the law.
What LSD has shown me about life and reality:
- Often we crystalize our experiences and emotions into memories, which act like sharp sticking points that keep us stuck when trying to move past our past and into our ideal life.
Every moment we decide to feed into past emotions and further solidify an existing world view or to decide to create a new life, based on our imagined ideal.
No matter how much we think we are perfect, we have much to learn, more to be aware of, we are never finished.
Every atom in our molecules in our cells are replaced by a new one every 7 years or so.
The Phosphorous atom in your DNA coding the MTHFR gene (an enzyme your body makes which aids in a vital chemical process) in a random muscle cell? Yeah not the same one you were born with.
Heck not even the fucking one you graduated high school with.
So what’s the same?
The light in the control room.
In a 3D model on a computer, you have to set up a camera. It doesn’t render as anything in the scene.
But it’s the spot which marks your Point of View.
That’s the real you.
Your body changes.
Your surroundings change.
Your friends come and go. Or they change.
Your girls come and go.
Heck people you know die around you.
But what’s the same all the time is that you have the same point of view. The same camera in a computer-rendered 3D scene.
And when you die, it will blink out of existence - or rather it’ll be decentralized from your life story and return to the collective.
Why am I writing all this?
First of all, I’m coming down from a trip.
Second of all, while I do not recommend anyone try LSD due to the very very real dangers it holds to everyone even experienced users like me, I do want to share what it has shown me.
A much safer way to experience the same thing is a book I started listening to, one Imogen has recommended on Andy’s podcasts: “Breaking the Habit of Becoming Yourself” by Joe Dispenza
Safe. And you’ll come to the same conclusions.
Third of all, this lesson - returning to the core of who you are, the SAME exact thing Tantra teaches when they talk about the Masculine energy - is KEY to ANY self-improvement. If you identify with the changes you make, you lose your grip on your Masculine… on WHO YOU ARE AT YOUR CORE and you fly in the hurricane of the chaos of life without order.
A great book to introduce you to Masculine/Feminine polarity: “The Way of the Superior Man” by David Deida
If anyone has more questions for me about my experiences with LSD, feel free to reply and I’ll answer.
