About a year ago i had taken about 8 grams of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms and decided to go for a hike in the woods. After about 30 minutes past ingestion (i had some food in my stomach) i began to notice an excellerated breathing pattern. i was hiking furiously, but i do not get winded easily. I became very aware of my physical self. i began to see all the beautiful colors on Gia's pallet. it was a windy day and it became apparent that everything in nature was planned. i came to an upward slope riddled with stone (there in a stone quarry nearby). i began to climb it and noticed that the trees were all growing straight up. such an obvious thing to bring out but it was a very interesting thing to me. i began to think deeply about life and came to the conclusion that even trees have a certain consciousness because they battle gravity and follow the suns rays. i thought about the four great battles in life. man against man. man against god. man against nature. man against himself. i began to think about the attachment i have for material possessions, the nostalgia i have for home, and my preoccupation i have with a long lost girl. i realize that i have much work to do to find unity with the universe. eventually i stopped using everything psychedellic and joined and altruistic movement for a while. i found great joy in helping others and began to feel love for everybody just as they were my family. i am sorry that this did not last though. eventually i became more selfish and began to be obsessed with my needs. this does not feel right. i do not think that i will use psychedelics anymore. i have no need to. i have learned what i need to learn, and it is my duty to act on this knowledge if i am to be truly happy. i am in the process now of finding my nich, when i find how i am supposed to contribute to the world i will be free from bondage. i do not regret the use of these mushrooms although true joy is in true love.
