People are individuals. To classify people belonging to a group as all being a certain way is foolish.

I wouldn't say all blacks are niggers or all southerners are inbred trigger happy rednecks. Just like we don't say all shroomery ppl are hard core drug addicts.

Just my 2 cents hehe

Welcome to the shroomery.
I think it is great that you have found such an interesting and powerful way to bring yourself and your wife closer to each other and closer to your spiritual beliefs.
Though I find that to be closed to all spiritual beliefs but your own causes a person to close off many paths of knowledge and understanding.
I try to open my mind to all spiritual theories as I find man during his short time within this existence has had an obsession with power and control over others.
This is the one reason most Religions get into Conflict, (IMO) it's a misinterpretation of a writing, or slight modifications to scriptures to accommodate the one in power, and over time one can see the obvious misinterpretations of the writings of GOD, in the form of holy wars and the human race with it's perpetual struggle for power that will eventually get us nowhere.
For example scaring young children into thinking they will burn for an eternity in hell for using the lords name in vein, yet they can murder someone and ask for forgiveness and spend the rest of eternity in heavenly bliss, will most definitely cause some type of mental imbalance.
I believe that no matter what your spiritual belief, if you are a good person and adhere to good ethics, you will be rewarded with eternal bliss, if in fact GOD as we know it really exists.

Whoops, I meant to say 'held' a stereotype. Not 'hold' a stereotype. That was the point of my post.

Oh yea one question to anyone that reads this when i shroom the whole time i taste them in my mouth the shrooms that is anyone one else have this problem??

How many times has this happened?

It's happened to me a few times... I just got better at making shroom smoothies. Actually, the taste makes me almost gag everytime. I don't even like regular mushrooms, so psilocybes are even harder for me to get down. I'm pretty sure it's psychosomatic.

Actually, the bible is very clear on what it takes to go to eternal bliss.

There's nothing you can do.
There's nothing any of us can do. Not good deeds, nor good works will gaurentee us a spot in His Kingdom.

The price has been paid.
Make sure you thank the Man who paid the price when you enter His Kingdom. :smile:

I hold a stereotype that Christians are uptight and closeminded about the world, but it really made me happy to hear that you and your wife (and pastor apparently) are all open to what the world has to offer. 




Actually, there are many more like my wife and I.

Many conservatives today are advocating an end to the 'War on Drugs'.

William F Buckley, Larry Elders, and Neal Boortz, among many others.

Many are Christens. Some of them even admit to using drugs once and awhile.

What bothers me is exactly what you wrote--this stereotype.
When conservative Christens have a stereo type, most people label it prejudice and racist. When others have a stereo type--it's merely a stereo type.

My point is that both are destructive and detrimental to society. But one is politically correct--and the other isn't. :smile:

  Cool! Me, too. Last night I saw him in the melted cheese on my tortilla. Damn! Should have taken a picture.




That's cool.

But, more importantly, you should have felt him, instead of seeing him. :smile:

Well, in that case, cool! This is good to hear. Invite him over sometime, then. 




Thanks for the words of encouragement, Landotter.

In our Church, the Pastor isn't the leader of the Church, the Lay Leader is.

And guess who that is? :smile:

Yup, it's me. I'm the Lay Leader. I'm the leader of my church.

The problem is that many people have misconceptions about drugs. They'll take drugs to mend their arteries, their heart valves and their kidneys--but they refuse to believe that there are drugs that mend your outlook on life--or your attitude, or your spiritual well being.

I've found the people in this forum to be believers in a faith that it's ok to enjoy the pleasures that Earth offers all of us. They believe perception should be challenged, and that speaking out in their faith in a forum, such as this, they can commune with others of like-mindedness. I also witness their frustration with others who won't believe what they're saying, mock them as simple minded and ignorant, and confuse their beliefs with the small minority who abuse their beliefs.

As a Christen, I can certainly relate to that!! :frown:

Thanks again! :smile:

Now, I'm trying to grow them here at the house--without much success yet.

She calls it my 'little hobby'.



Mycology is a great hobby. I can only assume you are growing oyster mushrooms :nudge,nudge: since those weird blue looking ones are illegal and all :-)

Just take some caution on the site brother. Good luck on your "oyster" setup
