what have you done to better youre life?
    #4457693 - 07/26/05 11:44 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

well the reason most people (who take psychedelics for the right reasons) take psychedlics is to learn about themselves, better themselves, enjoy their life, and have fun

i wanted to know what everyone has learned, and what they have done to make their lives better and better the lives of those around them?

i personally have discovered through my use of psychedelics the importance of being a pure, good person with true intentions
i am trying to improve my life and others around me with my understanding of the world and things, by being a pure person, not falling into material traps, standing up for what i believe in etc.

please share youre experiences

Hey, welcome viedub.  I dread writing long posts. Especially when I'm repeating myself. so I will say for me it's finding a path with heart. And my path with heart is unconditional loving.  :heart: :mushroom2:

I am in the same boat as you.

The things you mentioned are the same with me. But i also like to use the mushroom experiance to even further my mental development. It helps me to explore my mind, the world.

It seems as though i can understand complex things with more ease than when i am not tripping. I usually use trips to cleanse my body when i start to feel like i am getting sucked into societys stereotypes and prejudice.

"not falling into material traps..."

I dunno, man...  I've been focussing on alot of immaterial things... And I've noticed that material things are not all that bad.

Hell, some material things are just plain fun to have...

I really have no issues with the material.


...OOhhhh... 

Nice material...

Where'd you get it?


:wink:

I have learned many things, but one I will mention is that I have learned to speak with integrity. I try to say what I mean without sugar coating it and to live by what I say. I also avoid gossip and spreading verbal poison among my fellow humans. Thsi is speaking with integrity.

Not all my puns and jokes are winners though I am batting 0.650.

Um, dreadlocks - Jamaicans - Rastafarians , uh never mind.

Please continue. I will go back to where I crawled in from.  :crazy:

You're being modest. I would say your batting is much better and fairly often you hit one out o the park. :rastana:

"become much simpler, focused, and clear..."


Keeping things simple, being focused and clear are definately admirable traits to develop.

I use those traits myself...

One of the things I do to better my life and self worth is to excercise routinely. It not only makes me less tired when performing routine tasks, but it helps me feel good about myself.



I try to work towards my potential often.

When I do, as a result, my life slowly gets better.


Rather nice side effect.

Well, you are off topic, How about some thoughts on the subject matter.

Being light-hearted is my self improvement. Finding humor instead of anger or bitterness is genuine alchemy.

Oh! How could I forget! I learned the word 'Ithyphallic' last night on mushrooms too.

From reading your posts, I often am reminded of my mother. Which in this case is a complete compliment. She is probably the wisest person I have ever been in a relationship with up to this date. And she turns everything into humour, and funny humour at that! :cool: :heart: :mushroom2:

{edit} - to stay on topic I would say that all of you have shared something similar to what I have found in psychedelics. I feel that it really helps me see the path of my heart (although it is totally up to me whether I walk the path or not). I also feel a real connection to Nature and the Oneness of life while on mushrooms, this has definitely outlives the effects of the substance, and has implanted itself into me. In turn I have really changed how I perceive the world, and put most of my effort into treating my surroundings with love and respect. Now of course, being a human, I do not always succeed.  :tongue: But I definitely have changed myself (partly because of experiencing mushrooms) and really love who I am.

p.s. Did I just sort of go off there.... Can't quite tell.  :laugh:

:heart:
