Tripping Need To Knows...
    #4200420 - 05/20/05 05:56 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I just wrote this for a friend, and I thought other people might find it helpful... I apologize for the odd formatting, pasted it from notepad and that's what I got, so...


Absolute Need To Knows:

1.) No matter what you think or what you experience, never fight it.

SERIOUSLY, no matter WHAT. Psychedelics cause extremely unusual thoughts,

which is a great value... but also a slight danger if you fight it.

Resistance is what causes bad trips. Give in to the experience, and allow it

to happen.

You may learn things about yourself that you don't necessarily want to

believe. But always allow your thoughts to unfold. Don't divide and fight

yourself over it. Just allow your thoughts to flow and try not to dictate

what you're thinking. It's somewhat like dreaming. You're awake and


Just... go-with-the-flow... if you find you get snagged on a branch and are

thrashing in the current of your thoughts, just remember this phrase: "I'm

just tripping." Allow the event to occur... there will be time for

recollection later.

2.) The experience temporarily alters your perception. It displaces it, and

distorts it. What this means is that, for the first time, you're going to

have access to TWO direct perspectives on your life, instead of just one.

It's like having a best friend that has YOUR memories of your life... or

it's more like you temporarily become that best friend.. heh.

Because of this, it's a given that you may become capable of seeing

different angles on various issues in your life. You might realize you've

done something or believed something that doesn't seem like the right route

anymore. These can be great epiphanies, or they can be horrible experiences.

See #1 for details on how to make it a great experience. (Hint: Go with the


3.) Set and Setting. Always be with people you trust, in a quiet and

pleasing environment.

4.) The mushroom experience is part of life... and in that sense, it is what

you make of it. You will probably go full-spectrum... meaning you will find

the "fun" side and the "scary" side of the experience. BUT THAT IS NOT BAD.

Read on:

If you seek out the negatives, you will find them. Luckily, you can learn

about yourself from them. Even in the negative, there is positive... because

long-term benefit is found in negative experiences through what you learn

about yourself and the way you react to things.

On the other hand: if you seek out the positive aspects, you will find the incredible.


Religion is a group of people following what someone else says. Spirituality is finding your own path to the truth

of the nature of all things.

So how about it, man...

Why not try and make yourself?

The way I usually explain #2 is that every vault in your brain, every passed dream, or old memory or thought, all if becomes open for you to explore.

i'd add a number 6, remember that you will stop tripping in a few hours. no one has ever not come out of a trip before. i remember the first few times i tripped i got worried i was going to be permanently like that.
