Nirvana
    #4403721 - 07/14/05 03:10 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I had the feeling of nirvana when I did LSD. It felt as if my mind had been overcome by a majestic wave of peace. It was like a wave in that I could recall it sweeping over me in those hours. For once, I knew how the poets felt.

There were ideas I had that my culture told me to deny, ideas that I was told both explicitly and subtly were crazy by society, that were signs of schizophrenia or worse. In those hours it was clear. I was told those things because of someone elses fears, and be it a delusion or not, there was a sacred heart that no one could deny, that for all the tragedy life was an incomprehensible blessing.

Nirvana was profound. I understood that mental illness was real for many, that there are people with chemical imbalances and problems from their family and life experiences, but the majority of mental illness for people was fear or a cry for attention. There are far more people who feared that they might be crazy than people who tried to live and failed.

did you note the perfection of things otherwise considered imperfect?
did you note a natural flowingness of things and your own being part of that flowing without any resistings?
was it like spending time with an old familiar friend and also like being a baby in wonder at the same time?

You are blessed. :heart: And now you know.  :mushroom2:

Now you will have to see how to live it. :mushroom2:

I wasn't saying you do not. It was just a statment about using your trip awareness in your life. It was just directed out into space. I don't know you. :thumbup: :mushroom2:

Pretty cool. The first time I did acid I was hanging out on Hollywood Blvd with some friends and then me and this Mexican dude just started talking. About really deep shit. But I was speaking English and he was speaking Spanish. No shit. It went on for the whole night until dawn. That was a good trip - the best!

I know magical shit is real. LSD can be blessed.

Thanks for sharing that. That would be wild to trip in Hollywood. I couldn't even imagine what you saw.

One morning I opened my trip-log to see what had been learnt the night before. The microdot had written:

"no preferences hahahahahahahahahahah"

"The Tantra Shastra calls the Heart Suryamandala or solar orb, and the Sahasrara, Chandramandala or lunar orb. These symbols present the relative importance of the two...The ordinary man lives in his brain unaware of himself in the Heart. The Jnana Siddha lives in the Heart. When he moves about and deals with men and things, he knows that what he sees is not separate from the one Supreme Reality, the Brahman which he realizes in the Heart as his own Self, the Real."
-Sri Ramana Maharishi, Sat-Darshana Bhashya, p. xix

mark;
the symbols are good - with so many does the weight of it become daunting?

There was a Man from midnight
Who walked along the road
A Light was His possession
It was a heavy load
He wrapped it all in colors
But left the binding free
For those who felt the hunger
And truly sought to see...
