If you feel like you're goin insane...
    #892055 - 09/18/02 10:00 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I have this little theory...
this is mostly from experience of going through like a 6(or 7 or 8 or 9) month period of some sort of "insanity"..
please excuse my poor vocabulary, i smoked too much of the reefer in my past to learn new words!


there is 'good' stuff inside of you, and 'bad' stuff inside of you
when certain people feel the need to find divinity or peace or whatever they just want to flush EVERYTHING out of them.. so they gobble lots of hallucinogens and start questioning everything around them.  i think they are mistaken when they think everything they know is just useless programmed information. they just want to escape it all and find the 'real truth'. 

i believe they neglect the truth that is inside of them and always has been inside of them. and thats where the overwhelming confusion comes from.  they shatter their stability. 

this system of balance and need that is human nature. how to exist in your time and place in the world.

the cavemen had to manipulate the earth and make wheels to move things easier.
we invented global communication to talk to each other easier.
there is no difference in my mind...

i know i felt a huge load of guilt with every action, because i felt i was betraying some sort of earthly spirit..  i couldnt even flip on a light switch without feeling guilty about how much of mother nature had been sacrificed to maintain a system of electricity..
this is foolish and unrealistic...  it is the wrong way...

honor yourself by finding true healthy happiness in your life, in whatever way you can... there are no rules.. and when you are on the right path you will feel it with all your heart

dont needlessly punish yourself
dont try and be like a buddha in a book
open your eyes and find YOUR way

you have work to do, and there are many kind people out there who are gonna work with you

(p.s.  i got to a point where i felt absolutely nothing when i tripped anymore. there was no magic.  i believe this was the mushroom's message "get your life on track, then we'll talk")

hope this helps someone  :tongue:

Nicely optimistic, and nicely stated! Let's all be grateful for all we've been given, and give something back!

Well said. If I may add something it's this. Our conditioning to wake each day to either work or school is totally un-natural. We are so paranoid about alarm clocks and work whistles that when we DO find time to relax, our minds become confused as if we're NOT ALLOWED to indulge in anything else. I personally find this to be a problem for myself. It's as if there were no place to hid from the mundane everyday stupidity.
We do have the "way" within us. But we've been taught that only thru a freeze dried religion, that the "true" way will be revealed to us.

EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

I dunno if this is relevant, but whenever I trip I get this weird mindset, and I like to put on Radiohead - Everythign in its right place ... It makes me think that everything is what it is, There may be a reason for it, or there may not, but the fact still remains that its here now, and im alive. Something must be working right, and i dunno. I cant really put it into words, its a kinda comfortable, yet depressing, i would kill myself to escape it, but its eternal, and i will never change, or lose, or gain anything because i am what i am for all eternity... And then i kinda wake up and relize that me saying my life is all good, and theres nothing to complain abuoot is selfish when there are people worse off htan me. I dunno. The world is a fucked up place. A place wich created us, the one we created

You got it right on the nose with "wanting to flush EVERYTHING out," you don't know how good that sounds to me. I thought LSD was doing that for me but it turns out acid was just very very VERY good at moving it all around and covering it up.

I think that's the best advice anyone's ever given me... thank you =)

I should be out getting fucked up right now, but I'm right back to where I was almost two years ago. Nearly friendless, nothing to do but sit on the computer. The difference between then and now is great though.

I've got some good shit to look forward to in a few weeks, it sure would be nice if they were going on right now though.

i know how you feel
the simple answer would be to be out partying instead of thinking :smile:

thats all you ever hear..

there is more fun to be had, though
its in secret places
go outside and find some  :wink:
