On it or not on it, beauty is still beauty, appreciate...

Its just this thought that has struck me after having hanged out at the Shroomery for some time now, but...how do I start this...ummm...
Most of us in the Shroomery always talk about music that would sound good tripping, places that are nice when tripping, games that are fun, what to do when tripping and what not to do when tripping... I'm 100% a shroomer but the "obsession" or interest can somehow go over the line sometimes. For whatever reason shrooms are on earth my theory is that shrooms grow for us to see life, the universe, nature... from a different perspective, to spiritually enlighten us in a way to inspire us to continue to grow as human beings, so I don’t think it was meant for the purpose of "fun" as much as it is being used for fun. And there are allot of people who I feel are unworthy of shrooms... (Not meaning anybody I've met here) but this is a different topic.
What I want to get to is that we don’t need to think and ask so much about what would be great while tripping and this and that. Take a walk in the forest some time... Go diving, snowboarding, all the things that are great on shrooms are of course great without shrooms. Allot of people ONLY go to the forest when they trip because they see nature from a trip point of view, but how about learning from that trip and appreciating nature with and without shrooms? I have friends who don’t get off their ass before they’ve smoked something, because things aren’t as fun not having smoked anymore. It’s just too sad. A lot of times I take a walk along a lake, in the forest, just sit down and look at the sunrise… while listening to Shpongle even for that sake. Of course the thought strikes me, “how would this be tripping, how would that look like in a trip” but its just a curiosity thing. Some people walk past a great place and setting and say, “wow, it would be great to trip there” and continue to walk by! I would like to sit there and just unite with nature’s energy, on shrooms or not. The only difference is that a trip is a trip, and it’s like a vacation so you make a big day out of it. But beauty still lies within all… just think about that…

I don’t know if I got my point out the way I wanted to, but does anybody understand what I’m getting at, relate, anybody have anything to say?

i usually become incoherent and can't mess with anything like games..all i'm left to do is watch and think. if i'm not high and see something beauiful, i take a picture or chill there for a while. beauty in all shapes and forms is overlooked by some..

I'm with you man. I love nature. I like shrooms to and i grow quite allot but i don't trip that often anymore. Most of the time i actually prefer to watch and experience nature totally clean. Maybe it is because of the shrooms that i now have a deeper understanding for earths beauty. I'm not sure but i do know that i didn't always appreciate nature.

Anyway i agree with you. Shrooms can make anything beautiful. But its when you experience a powerfully moment without the aid of psychedelics you know that you have stumbled upon something truly beautiful. That empiric moment when you no longer question nature or yourself. Its a truly humbling experience.

Btw scandinavian nature is great!

Yeah and I think that this way of looking at nature will strike most people in one way or another sooner or later for shroomers, and it may take some time for some people and for some people it comes instantaneously on the first trip. Before my first shroom all I was looking for was hallucinations, even though I had an eye for nature it wasnt anything like after my first trip... which was in a forest (lucky for me I live on the other side of the road from a forest). Now everytime I pass the entrance to that forest I just look in and feel recognized in a positive way by the trees. I cant explain it, its really weird, but that trip was like a first encounter with nature in a "comunicative" way and that time has a special place in my memory... and basically I just look at nature with apreciation and full respect now and dont want it to be so that I need to trip to do so.

Yeah Norway has great forests and scenary...!
