Tripping in the End Times
    #602704 - 04/08/02 11:41 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I am just wondering how everyone is dealing with the fact that the world is falling apart - and such hatred and violence is rising up? For me - tripping and violence do not mix. There are certain realities which are just too ugly - for the stark realities of pychedelics.

I live in NYC and watched the towers fall. How will i ever trip again?

The dualistic nature of the universe, the yin / yang, is made up of both creation and destruction; life and death. This is what the mushroom teaches at its deepest levels.

The world is always falling apart in someone's eyes. People who experienced the The Black Plague, World War One, World War Two and numerous other tragedies both recorded and not recorded in history books have felt and thought the same things that you do. We are all wandering this existence in mortal shells, what matters is to make the most of your time and to do the best with the circumstances and tools at your disposal. If we dwell on the negative, we miss oportunities to enjoy and build upon the positive.

I loathe large population centers and I am planning on moving my family to the mountains in a couple of months. Those that I care most about will be with me. There, we will be out of the madness and not near any targets and I WILL trip under the stars with no city lights or sounds to intrude.

Don't worry about tripping, if it doesn't feel right - don't do it. One day you may feel more centered and better able to enjoy it.

Our reality is dualistic, but there is a balance point which is not. This is what the mushroom teaches at its deepest levels.

All of life is flux. It is impossible to remain at the balance point - even for God.

Everything is constantly fluxing, but the balance point stays the same on average. Like the total amount of water on the Earth is always constant, but it may be in different forms at different times (oceans, clouds, rivers, lakes).

if you are right swami then that would be gods choice, I'm starting to see the role evil plays on a higher level now, without it I think there would be no such thing happiness for nothing would exsist, all there would be is balance, a bleak exsistance with no meaning.


--------------------
insanity with a plan, a plan to stop exercising truth as compared to breathing thin air, but to experience truth as all there is to experience, for what do i not already have that exsists? All i can do is enjoy the ride.

Civilisation fall and rise If the egyptions or aztecs survived and other advanced civilisations such as rome we would all probable have space ships by now.
But at this moment in time i think its our civilisation time to fall.
But exsistence is suffering and if the buddist way is true none of this truley matters anway.

"But at this moment in time i think its our civilisation time to fall."

I agree, but I think it's in more of a gradual decline and could take at least decades if not centuries to come to it's full realization. Rome didn't fall in a day. As old civilizations vanish, new ones are born.

"But exsistence is suffering..."

Suffering is a part of existence, so is joy. Everyone has the power to change the nature and quality of their existence to a great extent. How you respond to events is often just as important as the events themselves.

These days time's not what used to be. What was 100 years back in the time of the Egyptians, or even the Middle Ages? New kings, same old shit. Compare to what's happened in the last 100 years. Or even the last 10 years, as compared to any 10-year period taken from previous centuries.
The rate of change in society- the velocity of history- is increasing; even the rate of the increase is increasing. It seems exponential. Back in prehistoric times,1000 years was nothing really; and further back, didn't we have almost a billion years of jellyfish and sponges...?

I don't think it's going to go vertical 10 years from now like McKenna believed. But I think it will get to that point, eventually. We might have hundereds of years left on this crazy boost but hundereds of years is still nothing on the timescale of the planet. Can you imagine our civilization after 4000 more years of exponential accelleration? I can't even picture it in 40.

So the younger ones among us have a good chance of seeing some major stuff happen within our lifetimes, if the pattern keeps up- and the only thing that's going to interrupt it would be just that kind of empire-ending catastrophe.
