Nah...We're not Olympians, nor are we Luciferian in pride. We're actually pretty down-to-Earth. I mean, we discuss things between us at home like I go on about at the Shroomery, but we grocery shop and clean house together. My Lady does most of the food preparation, but I do all the painting and plastering, yard and pool work, basic plumbing and electrical myself, so I'm just as comfortable at The Home Depot as in a post-grad university teaching gig. C.G. Jung lived in a tower (not ivory ) at Bollingen, but he built the thing with his own hands. His work is applicable to real-life too.

Well, I don't post too much, particularly. I think this is about my 500th post in 3 years, but for the most part I've only used S&P forum to post within. When I found the Shroomery I was tripping on acid at least every week and having psychedelic experiences I wanted to share. Also, I was reading up on a lot of authors in the psychedelic scene and hoped to have in depth discussion of their works. That never worked well. I still like to check up on the site and post some experiences now and then. That's about it.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

I post in this forum because it is a nexus of information of sorts.

First off, I find it fun. Intriguingly interesting. I love to have people provoke thought every moment. This is all about thoughts and people out to provoke meaningful, intelligent thought. On a wide spectrum and in a variety of ways, every sentence is full of that person's thought and their motivation to provoke thoughts of the same in others.

It is stimulating. Mentally stimulating, and in a refreshing down-to-Earth way. It pokes the mind all over, acting as the catalyst to an explosion (hehe, I believe someone already used this term, but I will too! hehehe) of flows of thoughts in all directions.

This place fostered my spiritual growth. This place serves as a powerful tool for self reflection and definitely allows one to consider different perspectives. I don't have to consider who I am or who I've been when I'm making these posts, although there IS at least somewhat of a personality that leaks itself through our posts.. wouldn't have it any other way! :grin:

The only challenge I keep in mind when I post is that I have an understanding of the perspectives the rest of you are going to bring into my posts.. who will say what to what, generally. It makes me think more on my own while I'm replying and allows me to really get a handle on my own thoughts...

The community, the ideas, the flows of thoughts and the vantage points and perspectives all interacting and creating this awesome Experience... We are all parts of one entity that is considering ideas, just like we do in our own head. We add and we contribute and we check and balance and we evolve these packages of ideas. We have a symbiotic relationship here with each other, we all give and we all further ourselves for it...

And of course, what we get out of it is what we seek to get out of it and somewhat what we put into it. Etc. etc. etc. This place rules all. :mushroom2:

:nut:
Peace.

Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

>When you see a topic that is either spiritual or philosophical and you reply, why?
-When I post in here it's usually a reply; a rebuttle to something I read that made me slap my forehead.

I post here (sometimes) because if I say something really stupid but couch it in obscure vernacular while throwing in some references to things I heard on the X-Files, someone may actually think I'm intelligent. That makes me feel good.

Interesting, fun, educational & therapeutic for the whole family at a depth previously restricted before the advent of the net. People learning about themselves, each other and their environment thru the interaction of differing perspectives.
A coming together of minds; a progressive experience; and a community service.

So, if you don't mind my asking, where are you now?

I also got bored at the other forums because I'm a loser with nothing else to do and read everything that interested me in the other forums.
