Whats so "Magic" about shrooms?
    #1421493 - 04/01/03 01:46 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I grow my own stash and i have consumed a fair amount of psilocybe shrooms and i have come to realize that i have never had a spiritual or enlightening trip off of shrooms.

I have done shrooms in all kinds of interesting settings with all kinds of people yet the only thing the mushrooms presents me with is funny visuals. In-fact the only thing i enjoy doing on shrooms these days is watching paintings. I love art on shrooms but thats just because i get seriously intense visuals.

At times my mind wanders of and i think something original and interesting but when i analyze it the following days i realize that it wasn't at all enlightening or special the high just made it seems that way.

Gateway to the spirit world? get the fuck out of here! Its nothing but hallucinations. I have done doses that most people would shit their pants if they tried yet no revelations.

I'm starting to get pissed when my friends talk about how enlightened they have become after discovering shrooms yet they are the same dumb-asses they have always been. Yeah you feel good and the trip is cool but thats it.

Mushrooms or any other drug are just the boat to get where you want to go. You still need to paddle or it's useless.

God smack :shocked:

interesting I have a group of friends who have consumed psychadelics for years and when recently discussing philosophy I was comparing equality to ego loss, and said " you know like on a 5 gram trip! " .they had no idea what I was talking about.. and as we got deeper into theconversation I realized they had never seen the world i had seen..I was shocked.
I dont know what to tell you, I am just as amazed you havent seen  [ or been anything for that matter ] amazing while shrooming as you are that i have :crazy:

err..maybe try asking yourself philosophical questions on 4-5 grams..
try looking out at nature and think look theres something.. theres something else..wait a minute its all something~ see the big picture~ look at the blade of grass/then look at the whole yard that contains the blade

Maybe read murex's "things to say to random people thread"
:cool:
good luck!

If you think of shrooms like that you'll never have a spirtual experience. Mushrooms don't make the experience, they just show you the door. It's up to you to walk through it.

There is no universal mushroom trip, or any universal message the mushrooms impart. I think people need to define the term "enlightened" because "spiritual" people always use it in conversation and everybody seems to have a different idea about what it means. I think you're wrong to brush it off the way you are, though. The more I eat mushrooms the more I'm amazed. I guess your brain is broke.

I don't know what to say either. They unlock your mind from the usual thought routines, but it is up to you to attain meaning from the experience. What is the highest dose you have taken, what was it like?

Me, my brother, and three other friends love to trip all them time - none of them really know what the cosmos are. They are left dumbfounded when I explain high doses. My brother and I are like the only real trippers in my town - everyone else won't take more than two hits of acid, or an 1/8 of mushrooms. It's really sad.

Trips are very personal but my advice is to try more strains.

I know a man, he has never consumed an illegal drug. That is his right, and I respect that. We talk about mind blowing philosophy, spirituality, and other subjects all day long. I have been thinking out of the box long before my mushroom experimentation also. Your mind does not transform into a mushroom when you consume them, it is still your mind. When I dose, I usually take in as much as I can, without anylizing it, then when sober, I take the time to process the information given to me. Taking mushrooms will open your mind up, but some people are a few paintings short of a gallery.

what are you doing them for then?

have you taken 5 dried grams and laid alone in dark (if you can't get darkness, close your eyes) silence (if ya can't get silence, put on your most mindblowing cds) for a whole trip?

Let me explain.

Just about anyone can munch a mushroom. But only a shaman knows how to use it properly.

I wonder what you mean... "properly" hey? I'd like you to explain what the "correct" way to use mushrooms is.

It took me about 5 trips to see what mushrooms are really about.. a glimpse anyway. Either I was delusional at the time (very possibly) or I was on to something pretty mind blowing. At this time I don't know which is the case. It's interesting though. And if it turns out I was delusional then mushrooms are still pretty "magic" for me, due to the experience alone.

while i have had the "spiritual" experiences and wouldnt trade them for ne thing, honestly its just all biology and chemicals inside your brain. so for you they probably just dont react the same way as to create emotions and feelings of "awe" and spiritual enlightenment. i would keep trying tho if you want to. i wouldnt increase the dosage if you already have visuals, i would just go for a while without (to make sure your tolerance is down) make sure your in a good mood (to avoid a bad trip) and take some with just one trip sitter (or alone, if you feel that is safe) and cut out any distractions like tv. also it might help to have your mind concentrating on one thought when you take off (like "why are we here") and that might help to get you into that philosophical mindframe.

good luck man. at any rate just try to enjoy your experiences and you can enjoy the experiences of others through trip reports as well. :smile:
