How do you control how to react when you are under emotional distress?
It’s always the same question.

Re: How do you observe in advance?

I hear you, what you need to understand and experience is that it is not an emotion or a reaction “singular” that you are experiencing and reacting towards. This process is occurring at the subatomic level trillions of times in the wink of an eye. You cannot think your way through the reaction proce...

Re: How to not be lazy or not procrastinate?

Just looking to know why I am so tired sometimes and I know I have responsibilities, but I just get lazy and procrastinate. I was hoping for some guidance on how to break the cycle of just being lazy. I know if I get up and just start moving, then this has the ability to build momentum, which can t...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. There is nothing 'momentary' or 'temporary' in a permanent change in perspective. The awakenings gained from such an experience have residual effects that last a lifetime. To clearly see that one's previous belief systems are simply programming adopted ...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

What is the case you are trying to make here? Are you speaking from experience, or is it an intellectual analysis? I'm genuinely curious. Now this is just me, but it would seem that if the meditation results you are espousing was all you say it is, you would have a more accepting view on all aspect...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

I don't recall saying anything about being 'dependent'. That is only your argument. I only state there are effective options to gain greater clarity on life. There is not just one path - meditation - to that clarity. I appreciate your passion on the subject, but I will trust my own experience over ...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Only a clear concentrated balanced mind can undertake the job of ending ones misery. And psychedelics, under the right conditions, can do just that. When one's mind is in a morass, breaking free of its hold is a good thing no matter what the catalyst. Freedom is freedom. Experience is always the be...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

I disagree. While I've never taken ayahausca, I have explored psilocybin and marijuana. I have also spent considerable time in meditation. Both have good value in spiritual growth. One might argue, correctly, that everything in life is engaged for the experience. That however, is too broad a descri...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

You're still eating in order to change your experience of starving to death if you don't. This isn't feeding craving and aversion though, this is just choosing to stay alive. In life, we're always presented with choices that will effect our experience. Taking a medicine to heal an illness, this is ...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Ayahuasca in itself does not help with being present, its about how its used. For most people, washing the dishes doesnt help to deepen presence. But someone practicing deepening presence will use this experience, like all experiences to practice presence. Of course you wont depend on washing dishe...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Drinking ayahuasca isn't anymore practicing craving than going to a Vipassana retreat. I'm not gonna try and explain it to you, all I'll say is this is something you don't understand, your post is like an explanation of meditation written by someone who has never meditated. I’m very open to the dis...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

If your practice is simply spiritual experience, then by all means continue with drug use, alcohol, or whatever gives you a thrill. Your efforts to demean an ancient practice is curious, when I simply asked you how do you explain it's historic use in religious and spiritual practices around the wor...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

How do you explain the wide ranging use of such substances in ancient religious and ceremonial traditions including Christianity, Hinduism, Masonry, and many native spiritual practices around the world? Their whole purpose was spiritual experience. Even the story of Santa Claus is based in amanita ...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Its not like what you think. Life is very mysterious and brings you experiences and tools which can catalyse a deepening of presence in you. These experiences and tools come in many forms. While were all on the same path of awakening, were all on our own unique path. The way your spiritual journey ...
