Why are you posting in thie particular forum???

:shocked:

This point was made in a post made recently, I thought It would be a good idea to clarify why we are posting in this forum...

What is your philosophy for posting in S&P? What do you take, what do you give... what purpose does it serve?

Quite simply I see it as a learning experience. I am here to make sure I never settle down and believe I have it all figured out, something that I think I fell into very, very recently and with help of this forum came to realize. I am here to reflect on my thoughts and also recieve the reflection of others which ultimately leads to a battle of fighting the importance of the self, and the idea's of the self. Time and time again I see the greatest lesson in humility and from here see the absurdness of attachment and the chains it forms around you. This forum is a great tool and I am very grateful for it and ALL the people within it.

To check validity of arising bubbles. To ask questions. Have fun. Keep my mind centered on uplifting words. Share pieces of wisdom found in books or on sites.

The shrooms are my minds scandisk and the shroomery my minds defragmentation :thumbup:

Most importantly; for therapy :heart:

well, beyond the fact that i'm interested in philosophy and spirituality, the reason why i post here is probably a metaphysical one that i'm not even aware of and that i wouldn't be able to express with words anyway :wink:

First for connection to others who share some of my interests. Also for the chance to see where I'm at, compared to others. Yeah I know it's not so hot to compare but I want to be honest here. To defocus from other more important things that I'm not ready to tackle at this time. To temper my spirit and ego. To compete, and also to share Love. To learn from all you amazing souls. To practice my communication skills. To increase my ties to humanity. To play. :heart: :mushroom2:

I found my way to this forum rather by accident, but I am naturally attracted to the topics "spirituality" and "philosophy" so it was a happy co-incidence.

I may be like many others in this respect, but I feel compelled to share "the big picture" with everyone. The problem is, as the saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words", and I would venture to say that the "big-picture" is worth quite a bit more than a thousand words. Most people in the world don't have the patience to discuss it; but here at the shroomery, in the S&P forum, there are at least a few like minded souls who are willing to swim to deep end with me.

I guess then, the real reason I'm here is to share the big picture with other people, and by "share" I mean both "to impart [the big picture] to" and also "to appreciate [the big picture] with" others. Before I can "share" in the latter sense I have to be seeing the same "big picture", so alot of my time here in the S&P forum is spent "sharing" in the former sense. I'm also happy to recieve some of the insights that other members share, and I frequently integrate these other perspectives with my own.

share,

1. To impart to,
2. To appreciate with,
3. To recieve a portion with--

others.

I read this forum to try to learn something that will either make me feel better or inspire me to 'get my act together.' Sometimes I read stuff that is insightful and that's cool and I try to thank people when I do, but there is a lot of dramabickering and a lot of tangential dead ends.
Terence McKenna inspires me, and he says mushrooms show people how to get their act together spiritually. It seems to me like this forum should be the central hub of the shroomery community...
It seems to me like the basic thing that happens if you take a good dose and are serious minded is mushrooms imparts spiritual wisdom.... but here at the shroomery this is one of the lesser trafficked forums. It seems most of the time kids trip on mushrooms to get "f*cked up" and have a few weird experiences and then go on with their life no different. Well you know that there, and the sum of all the crap on the shroomery (of which i am high on the list of craphead posters) in itself is disinspiring to me, maybe more so than the posts by smarty pants on this here forum, so I wind up feeling the same or a little worse.. i'm not a leader, I'm waiting to be led...what time is it?
