I am spiritual and used the mushrooms to think about spiritual matters all the time. They did not make me spiritual, I was already praying, meditating, and leaving my body occasionally. I talked to a very advanced soul one day about the shrooms and he humbley told me that they were holding people who are seeking truth back from growing like they are here to do. He told me that it's all a delusion and not real truth when on shrooms or any other drug. I was like whatver stupid ass, thats bullshit, I know what I experience on shrooms and it is real and helps me find truth. He just smiled and said 'okay'. I had to ask more, like how the hell would he know this. He told me it was all ego and only coming from ego. Drugs are ego food, not a catalyst to truth like I believed. I still said fuck that, in denial. He went on to explain that it was merely the ego's idea of what the truth is, and that is projected on the 'mushroom trip', it is all a delusion since it is not real, and only imagination.
I didnt want to hear that, but in my heart I had given it some thought just like any other bit of information I hear or read and realized that it was true. All it did was help me hide my problems deeper behind fake vibes. They didnt get accepted, just hidden better. They just pile up and kick my ass later. It makes so much sense that this man was telling me the truth. If they were so divine and sacred, then everyone would without a shadow of a doubt experience these shrooms on a spiritual level(is what I believe). It explained, for me, why some turn to atheists, some get crazy inlove with them cuz it makes them feel better about themselves and what they believe(a faith booster, but I believe it is fake and coming from ego now, one shouldnt need a drug to believe), and some it just makes even more lost and clueless but yet they still try to achieve the trips some claim to have.
anyways, I suppose I would fall under a "I am 'spiritual', used psychedelics, still spiritual and do not use psychedelics anymore.
thanks for reading my opinion. and stay safe on your trips and know that I do not look down on any of you for your use, because from my experience, I truly understand what you believe and how you feel, and it is all good. I'm just seeking my truth differently now, with a clear mind.

I could have selected 2 or 3. It's complicated, but not THAT complicated.
I used to be religious (LDS/Mormon), and would have never tried psychedelic drugs while still believing in that faith. Mormons follow a code of health, that prohibits illegal drugs, and "harmful" drugs. I had always wondered what it was like, but I had never considered actually trying anything. Well between 2003, and 2004 I had a rapid awakening out of the church, to the point of being really angry about all the lies the church uses to keep people from asking fair and honest questions.
I got "sick of it all," and rapidly went from being a devout Mormon of 31 years, to a party animal. But! In the midst of partying I tried Mushrooms...
I saw/experienced this thing, this unity, this "pure potentiality" the stuff from which the universe is made, what perception really is, what consciousness really is... and I fell in love with the universe for the first time... and "religiously," I have begun to really seek ultimate truth.
I've learned that something far more vast, and eternal lies just beyond this world, and is in fact the fabric from which this world is cut. I feel more religious than I ever have in my life, because I actually feel like I'm seeking further knowledge in true eternal principals, and not just cultivating blind faith.
I would truly say I am more "religious" than ever, however, my motives aren't to win favor with any God, but instead perhaps to someday become practiced, and knowledgeable enough to manipulate my existence in ways only few can.
