2nd trip = Ego Death: and the word is R.e.s.p.e.c.t
    #2680887 - 05/15/04 02:36 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

last night a friend and I ate too many ... we were not prepared for the dose we took. fresh ps subs. fuck me. did I learn some respect last night. I awoke today with a new found perspective on my life, on all life, because once you have been to edge and stared into the abyss ... I can only say I came back a humbled man, fully aware of my own naivet?, my own foolishness ... such fragile things we are in the eye of the great storm - how little we knew, how little we know.

We realised the mushroom is a teacher, nothing more, and last night we learnt a lesson we will never forget.

The only message I can impart to anyone beginning shrooms is be careful - it is better to shoot under the mark rather than over - because if you go over and you don't know how to deal with it, your gonna end up in a bad place my brothers and sisters. Take your time to get there ... take your time.

I will take shrooms again. I will hopefully like to return to where we went last night, but in due time and with more experience. There is much to learn in that place.

I love a good ego death, really puts life into perspective and makes you realize that no matter what happens, the end result is always the undeniable, forever loving oneness of everything. But yeah, if you don't know that something like egodeath even exists when it happens, like my first one, it can be a bit scary going in, but once you're fully dissolved there's nothing that can disrupt the bliss :smile:

it is only as scary as your own mind allows it to be. But yea sometimes you can feel fragile out there becuase your ego is not there to protect your physical body, maybe thats what you were feeling?

To me, ego death is the true beauty of mushrooms. Once your ego's dissolved, the pure universal awareness is incredible. You no longer think as a human but rather as pure energy and the universe becomes so easy to understand. The ego is there to bind our organism into a single entity, but also to block out the very obvious truth in order for us to continue evolving. But to see the truth temporarily is quite the worthwhile experience :smile:

The best part of ego death is finally appreciating things you take for granted....

shrooms are a great teacher to me too. I only experienced ego death once, I hear you cant really lose your ego more than once or twice

i think ego death is the best part, because its so bad that anything better than that is incredible. i agree, it seperates your mind and body and then destroys both of them, making your existence irrelevent. you are just a ball of energy or sometimes not even that. you learn to appreciate life more, just like in Fight Club. :tongue:

is ego death that thing where you forget who you are, or even that you exsist, and you forget how to use your body, and your senses seem to go away? that shit scares me whenever it comes on.

For me, ego death was when "I" became nothing, and yet I was everything, flowing in and out of everywhere. Endless, continuing forever, an eternity of pulsating energy that "I" was absorbed into. "Everywhere and nowhere" describes it pretty well. Hard to explain exactly, but the memory still gives me shivers.

And yes, it was very frightening since it was my first time ever to reach such a state. But I can see how it could be a state of bliss too, if one submits entirely to the experience.

for me ego death is a state of mind that allows me to meditate on mushrooms with goal to achive nirvana nothing more. ego death is not a state of mind where all the answers is, just like mushrooms is not one thing you can take and bam your buddha. the mushrooms are not a teacher, you are your own teacher and mushrooms are just a tool , a shortcut actually. but the rest is up to you, not the mushrooms. its important to understand that there is no absolute truth in mushrooms and alot of things that appears on a trip is just your own fantasy and this can misguide you.

Ajna, Always Respect the plants and fungi appropiately or when you least expect they will kick your ass. lmao

Elle, "Everywhere and nowhere" describes it pretty well."

That is also how one describes a god,which really puts into perspective how divine the experience really is.For a moment in the eye of life you become as close to god/a god as you will ever become in all likeliness.

Well it's my belief that we are god, as my definition of god is that it's the collection of everything, the infinite nothingness of existence. We (although "we" are not seperate at all, but only illusioned as such) all understand the universe and God, as we are a fragment of it. Our ego hides this information, and shapes us into a single illusioned entity, in order for us to evolve the nothingness. When our ego is destoryed, we can look at everything subjectively (every human normally is in biased towards humans- for example wanting to believe that a personal god looks out for their wellbeing, ect..) and the truth becomes so blantantly obvious.
