The politics of tripping, where the term 'tripping' is used synonymously with 'being,' intense 'being,' is the politics of 'live and let live.' I never once in hundreds of acid trips, and later mushroom trips, ever want to force anyone, control anyone, oppress anyone. I DID want to share my insights, and even more did I want others to see for themselves what I was experiencing, but most people wanted (vehemently) to remain in 'the Matrix' (to use the latest illustration). I sought to become a Light: I became celibate, I stopped eating animals, fish, I ignored current fashion and continued to wear long hair and a beard, and non-fashionable clothing. It was my statement - my disregard for my own desires because the Truth was more important - the Truth transcended my desires, my egocentric needs. Very few asked me what I was into. Very few cared. I was just crazy or eccentric or had taken too many drugs and just wasn't 'with it.'

Well, I WAS 'with it,' 'it' being a much deeper level of identity as a human being - living in the nucleus, not the shell. I have given expression to that spiritual stance in many ways. My home is replete with many artistic representations of The Experience. Mythological, magical, religious and psychedelic art invite all visitors to question, to wonder what all these sculptures, wall hangings and paintings mean that call to them from every room. The house has a many shelved books. Very, very few people care, let alone seek...let alone find...let alone BE.

I do not deny the gnosticism of any faith, but i deny the ends at which people claim to make in support of their religion. I do not find wars, and peoples deaths to be a good thing when seen as a marker for the death of others, no matter what the religion. There are the fanatics in any space, I just try to look for the truth, no bullshit, just humanity, wherever i can find it.

Hey man, I'd definitely love to see your house sometime, examine the statues and peruse the books, finding some new information... :grin:

I like the idea of seeking to be a "Light", I was thinking something along those lines last night while watching Return of the King.. Aragon and Gandalf are quite the characters. :thumbup:
Peace.

Well then...I should like to see the land of the midnight sun as well. Thanks for your interest! BTW, we just got in from seeing The Return of the King. Awesome film! Tolkien rules! I'd like to hang a copy of Gandalf's sword over the Green Man, over the fireplace. Peace.

Myself, I would love to have Aragon's sword. I guess there are some replicas that are perfectly sharp and balanced, for a few hundred or something.... I need to get one. :grin:
Peace.

after you have one of these[NDE], you understand everything

Uh huh. Which is why some of these people believe in reincarnation and some don't. Some believe in Christianity and some don't.

If some Ultimate Truth was revealed instead of some brain trauma filtered through pre-existing beliefs, then all would come back with the exact same information, but not so.

The proof is in the pudding.

After my divorce, some 11 years ago, I read Gillette's & Moore's books on four major male archetypes: Magician, Lover, Warrior, King, in order to see how unbalanced I was in my life, and to give me insights into my failed marriage. I was stronger in the Magician, Lover archetypes, and deficient in the Warrior (even though I had earned belts in Judo and Jujitsu as a kid) and the King. Fatherhood belongs in a sense, more to King than to Lover, and I'm not a father. So...I still identify more with Gandalf the Magician, than with Aragon the Warrior-King. For me, the selection of sword is based more on the associated symbolism, and the whole Tolkien trip is an archetypal realm.

Sounds sweet, man. I was reading a page today connecting some stuff Jung or somebody about archetypes and LOTR...

I really like how you carefully select things like that, definitely. Sort of reminds me of feng shui in a way. :grin:
Peace.
