First Time Bliss
Within minutes the TV was annoying me to no end, so I turned it off and turned on the radio. I was on the couch anxiously waiting for something different to happen...anything. After awhile I thought it was a bust because nothing seemed to be happening. When I closed my eyes, I had weird and complex thoughts, but nothing else. I was convinced that I was not suited to experience this for whatever reason. I had always been a skeptic and this wasn't helping. Not a skeptic of mushrooms, a skeptic of anything I hadn't experienced or couldn't imagine experiencing. Its a horrible way to think, but I couldn't fix it. Fortunately, I am starting to get over it...thanks in part to these trips. After two whole hours I decided to join my girlfriend in the bedroom and hoped to take a nap. Well, she was in a playful mood and we started rolling around and kissing. What happened next will leave a permenant mark in my memory. My vision changed and I seemed to be outside of the action. It was as if I was directing my body's movement, but not acting it out for myself. It was very, very erotic and we had Great sex that day. Afterwards, I was very definitely in the full effect of something magical. I was energized psychically. Waves of energy spiked into the back of my head, literally (I think) pushing my head forward as if being slapped. I wanted to travel more than I wanted to live. I so desired to be on the road. My girlfriend (not tripping) agreed. I stepped out the door and was bombarded by life. It was as if I had never seen this place before and I cared so much about it that I wanted to see it all. We drove in the car towards the Cities and I put in the Doors. It was like being in a movie. So much was flowing into me that I could barely contain myself. The music was playing so loud that my girl couldn't take it, but I felt as though I could barely hear it. I was as happy as I remember ever being. The thoughts I had were amazing. Then I began to read signs backwards. The first I saw was DOOF. I thought that was hysterical, I just couldn't get over how funny that was. I wasn't like a stoner though, it was a genuine humor that had depth. No offense, just different.
Eventually, we reached the ominous Mall Of America. I was immediately in tune with its Mecca status and I wanted to experience what other less enlightened (pardon arrogance) people experience there. Everything inside was beautiful. I would frequently get lost looking at something that in other states I would blow by. A shining moon with a cup like a calypso drum was overwhelming, my girlfriend had to pull me away. I played with a globe that had a pen which you could touch to any part and it would say what you had indicated. I was enthralled by this. I touched myself and it said nothing, that was very annoying. What I took away from this was the ability to be oblivious to that which did not effect me. I realized this when a clerk was shoving things in my face and trying to ask me questions, but I was on a different plane. When I saw she was there I instinctually moved away from her 'low' state of corruption. She was stunned, but I don't know that. My girlfriend explained it later. It was a beautiful experince that I will never forget. I felt so close to my girlfriend and I was in tune with things I had never before noticed. The effects wore off 10 hours after the ingestion. I slept like a rock that night and woke up invigorated. Thanks to all those who helped and especially to this page and its maintainers because I wouldn't be here without them.
