Thanks guys, something weird happened in class today right before I turned in my paper.

The professor started talking about the nature of God and reality, and he mentioned the universal consciousness. I couldn't believe it...considering what I had written my paper over. There is definately something very special about this professor.

Anyway, here is my paper. It's supposed to be a Short Expressive. It didn't take me long to write it...I just wrote from what I remembered.

Reborn

God isn?t a pious white man sitting on a golden throne high up in the sky. When I say ?God,? I mean something entirely different. ?God,? the Deity, the Goddess, the Other, is impossible for humans to define, yet we will always try. I do not presume to categorize or label God, but I will never forget the night I experienced the divine for the very first time.

On that evening, I ingested the sacred fungi with the knowledge that I would be taken to a place that I?ve never been before. This was to be my highest dose yet, a landmark in my psychedelic experimentations. Somehow, I knew I would be changed forever after this. I called my friends and family and told them that I loved them, as though I was preparing for death. In a way, I guess I was. Settling in the head-space for my Journey, I ate the mushrooms.

Words cannot do the experience justice. The psychedelic experience transcends all words, but I will try and relate some of what I encountered. Energy surrounded and pervaded me in a golden rainbow, tearing my ego to shreds, building me anew and breaking me apart again. Everything exploded into tiny crystal bits of information feeding into my senses, a kaleidoscope of fractal images. The pattern was composed of everything in existence: ideas, life, language, concepts, meanings, places, people?it was all there. ?I? ceased to exist in that infinite realm. The illusion of being separate was stripped away; I was nowhere, and yet I was everywhere I looked. There was nothing?only everything.

In that ecstatic and timeless state, I found both unfathomable terror and unspeakable beauty. Wrapped in the throbbing golden awareness of all existence and eternity, I experienced the divine. We are the children of God as each and everything in the universe is God. God is the universe, the collective consciousness, and the universe is us. We are all One.

Recalling this experience fills me with a holy sort of elation that is impossible to explain, much like the experience itself. Tears build at my eyes as I remember being enfolded in the rainbow glory of eternity, and returning to the pure infancy of creation. In the months afterwards, not a day passes that I do not think of this experience and what it has done for me in my waking life. I will never be the same.

I reflect upon this experience with awe. I don?t know exactly what it was that I experienced, but I can say that what I encountered cannot be explained by mere words. There are skeptics who will read this and dismiss this account on virtue that it was drug induced. All I have to say to them is this experience is as valid as any other in the world. I have learned to listen to my plant-teachers. And I know beyond all doubt that on that night, I became Reborn.

Well written, I don't think it should stir up a problem at all.

thats a well-written piece! you focus very little on the drug and mostly on the experience, which is the most important part!

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

if the professor is cool it wont be a problem. Personally i would never do a paper on drugs since i might get labeled. Not all teachers are old hippies from Berkeley

That was a beautifully description of the ego loss experience.  From what I've seen you post here on the Shroomery, you're gonna be a phenomenal writer.  Ummm...career-wise, I mean...you're already a great writer whether or not you've had anything published. :thumbup:

Thank you everyone!  I'm glad you liked the paper.  I'll report back here as soon as I get my paper back.  I just get a very good vibe from my professor, that's why I felt mostly comfortable writing this in his class.  He is the type of professor that is always challenging social constructs in class, always throwing wild ideas and stories at us.  He's not afraid of controversy at all. 

I love that man. He's the best teacher I ever had. :heart:

a lot of english teachers know the connections of aldous huxley, ken kesey, and other important writers and drugs. I'm sure it wont be a problem.
In a class about Asian art influencing the West, I decided to write my essay on how Buddhist theory influenced America in the 60s, so the topic ended up being a comparison between the aims of Buddhist enlightement and psychedelics. And i got a high mark! the teacher is cool though. Cant wait to hear how you go!

Oh yeah, well my English Professor liked it!  He gave it back to me with a little smile and said, "You know, that was really good reading.  Very interesting." 

So I made a good grade.  :smile:
