Gaia, mushrooms, and you!
    #2708738 - 05/21/04 12:32 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I am now a strong believer of Gaia. I believe that planet earth is a collective conciousness, and part of that conciousness is us, Humans! Ever piece of life that exists on this planet is part of gaia. Humans are the most "concious" part, so we are expected to do the most work to help maintain a balance. Te majority of present day man has gone off on an evil tangent that has detrsoyed the natural connection that we share with our enviroment, or better put, our connection with Gaia! During the sixties "hippies" started expermineting with psychedelics like LSD and espescially psilocybin mushrooms. Out of these experiences we found people that cared more about helping earth than gaining power and possesion. This was the beginng of the evolutionary reconnection with Gaia! The psilocybin mushroom exists as part of Gaia to help man re establish the connection! The mushroom exists so that those that have destinies of great prevelance, can find there path and be re assured that they will succeed.

My "god" is gaia. I put my faith into gaia, i know that i have a purpose and i will not "die" untill it is full filled. If you put your faith in gaia, for the good of all life, gaia will protect you, i believe it.

throug the mushroom dampened channells of communication with the spirit of earth are reoppened so that we can go back and restablish an equilibrium.

Gaia has a purpose for you, what is your purpose?

peace and love and happiness.

What led to this revalation was a beutiful trip on a beautiful beach last sunday. IT was as if Gaia channeled all of its energy into me and showed me the truth, and what i must do and what not, come trip with me, ill show you.

Ah the sweet silence...
finally someone follows the old saying "if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all"
thanks positronius
:thumbup:

anyways, yeah man GAIA. For sure.
seriously though i think we are all capable of transcending, at least temporarily, the illusion of seperateness or individuality and reaquire a sense of the cosmic conciousness.

No better way that tripping either.
THank god i have a half ounce in my backpack right now
:grin:

one thing tho: "if we trust in gaia she will take care of us"
yes and no. What is good for gaia is good for us, in a long term, bigger picture sense.

In the small picture sense, no matter how much you trust in gaia, you will die. Thats part of the deal.

:tongue:

----wow, could you get any more condescending? if you are going to be THAT pretentious, at least do it with style, you sound like a school marm.

I have lots to say, but whats the point? logic and creative understanding are always defeated by dogmatic faith.

um, sorry dude i really wasnt aiming to be condescending. That was sincere. I could tell that you had a problem with this thread, and thats fine, but i honestly apreciate that you just stayed out of it and left it for those who choose to discuss it.

I seriously think we all need to follow that axiom more on this thread.

again, sorry if that came off as insulting...

Yah I picked up on your sincerity Pharmakos, and considered it a show of respect actually towards positronius. Typed words are often falling short of the mark they were aimed towards.

You can call God whatever you want, all that matter that it has the same meaning. This Gaia would be what people call Source, God or Force. This consciousness would be the Space itself.

While my last travels with brother shroom, I again and again had time gaps, when I got very 'deep' in touch with gaya. And I mean that in a very literal and earthy way. Hard to explain even. It went about the materiel 'earth', worms, mold, slime, muddiness, slow growth and moving, the shromies itself growing like worms,grave,seduction, resting, peace, half-light, low air, dumb, bassy..
It was not that bad, as it may sound. But in a way, before it could get to 'comfy', I was very released and happy to get my way back towards more air and light :smile:
So that leads out to the other big big part of wholeness. And to remain in the same abstraction-pattern like 'mother gaya', it's the father 'sun'. Another symbolic expression of the godly power to unite the male and the female forces to make better completion.
After the trips I often feel like reborn out of earth and spirit. Somehow rerooted. Enjoyingly calling for the light, in deep respect with the 'feeding' and 'receiving' nature earth our big mother gaya.
I often think about the good old school of arcadic magic, with its earth,water, air and fire system, like coins (shield), cups, sword and staff, and so on.
This gives very big conclusions...

I am not worried about death, i accept death as a part of my life, but i understand that Gaia has a purpose for me, and that untill i fullfill my destiny, i wont die.

peace and love

One of the best things I like about tripping on mushrooms is that "organic" feeling where I can feel our planet as a living entity. Everything around me also seems to take on this quality, as if everything that comes from Earth is a part of its being. Even electronic equipment takes on an organic, earthy quality. In a sense, everything is "alive" at some level.

As for reconnecting with Gaia, the first step is realizing that you are a part of the planet rather than separate from it. We are not supposed to have dominion over the earth, but integrate ourselves into it.

I also believe all of what you have said. Gaia is mother of all. She is sending warning to us through mushrooms and LSD. (which is a type of fungus grown on rye)Many humans hurt the earth every day and the many that have noticed the cries of Gaia are called "druggies" or "hippies". LSD-25 was made illegal by the government for several reasons regarding their control over people. lSD started a peace revolution that brought down the ways of control and brought forth a peaceful anarchy that met an early end.

People have been using psychedelic mushrooms since before civilization; I'd say that civilization disconnected us from "Gaia", and that the 60's psychedelic fueled counter-culture movement was a step towards reuniting with "Gaia".


"My "god" is gaia."

Then what is "Gaia's" God?


"Gaia has a purpose for you, what is your purpose?"

To be alive for as long as possible. :mushroom2:

While out Solo shrooming I had a very in depth conversation with a Christan fellow I found walking his dog. He pointed out a very strong point that I feel a connection twords. I asked why is it wrong in his eyes to worship the earth. He replied because you are worshiping Gods Creation......not God himself

Thats good you have found something to put your faith in. However considering that everything on Earth (or Gaia as you call it) is temporary....your object of worship is temporary as well. I personally do not see Gaia worthy of worship. I am thankful that it provides everything I need to sustain life, however to worship it is equivalent to worshiping the bowl of cereal I had for breakfast :shrug:

And as for the Hippie's and the psychedelic revolution was just another extreme taken to its breaking point. Yes being a conservative Christian out to exploit the earth doesnt do any good. But does tripping balls 24/7 and sitting on your ass contributing nothing to society help either?
