I here alot of people say that mushrooms enlighten you and are very spiritual. I was wondering what some peoples opinions on this was?

yes, mushrooms have a large spiritual aspect. though this question is out of place. you can find tons of information on psychedelics and spirituality, just google it or look throught the shroomery. the Spirituality and Philosophy forum here may be a good place to start.

While I do more or less agree with you, I've taken it a step farther on occasion and delved into the thought that maybe those who don't seek out enlightenment or spirituality on entheogens simply don't need to.

To find enlightenment on entheogens, one must learn to surpass their mind and "let go" or "go with the flow".

Now... if someone should eat an entheogen and never enter a mode of deep thought, but instead just have a good time, isn't that EXACTLY what those that seek out enlightenment end up finding out they SHOULD have been doing in the first place?

Wisdom is a safety rope... it is designed to save those who intellectualize too much. We think deeply until we conclude that we don't need to worry ourselves with all this extra deep thinking.

--

I'm not saying I necessarily believe the above, I just think it's good to try to see things from different angles. Instead of looking down on those who use entheogens for fun, one might consider realizing that someone who uses entheogens for fun simply does not NEED the intellectual journey in the first place.

When I take shrooms I feel like Im exploring out of my body. Like Im a god looking at all creaters of the world. Like Im an alien seeing the world for the first time. I dont know if this has anything to do with enlightenment but I hope its good.

Enlightenment is a funny thing...you don't know how far you are from it until you realize you have none of it at all(more specifically, enlightenment implies practice, tripping may give you a taste of it but it takes discipline).
