PLEASE READ IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ON USING PSYCHEDELICS! ‼️
I wrote this because there are people who didn’t take it seriously and ❌RUINED ❌their lives!
I named it
Boring Sermon on Psychedelics:
Some of us, and many more in the recent years,
use mind altering substances to escape the reality of what is going on in our lives,
we are tired, lost and spent.
Sometimes we are so desperate, we want out of our head, body, our whole being!
We drink some, smoke some, inhale some
and just to round up all the methods in one, we take some…
What happens next is very personal experience of a particular mind in a particular time.
This is very much not understood by so many people
that this personal experience depends on the preparedness of one’s mind
to stay focused,
to navigate with awareness in the altered mind state experience,
to be able to discern,
to be able to receive,
to be able to let go of fear if it arise,
to be able not be caught up in a wrong view.
This is only possible with trained mind -
mind that was trained to follow the Will.
Untrained mind is the one that makes a human identify
with the story it runs,
it makes believe that it is real.
It has full control over the human who is following it.
Not to follow the story of the mind great awareness is necessary.
It is free awareness, free from being caught up in the story, and
it is only available to a human being that wasn’t conditioned yet
like a newborn, small children,
or an adult who spent at least 7 years seriously training
their mind to become a servant, and not a master of their life.
I know, you will tell me:
Oh, common, Elena,
you are an old school, times changed, and these substances are available now,
I can’t wait to train my mind for 7 years, I want to use it now!
It is true, times changed, and if we assume 7 years might be condensed
at these times into 7 months (just a wild idea!),
then frikin spend 7 months training your mind
before you get into altered states through psychedelics
and drive a car under the influence, because you believed you are able,
or fail your important relationship because you unable to keep your responsibilities,
or, go too far for your current state of being into the trip that you come back altered
and you have no awareness how to navigate this very reality anymore!
Or, you assume you have some higher powers and you deserve better life
and you start to expect your life to be better then it is,
while unaware that what you see outside is a very projection of your own mind.
Or assume you have rights for life other then you have
and you start to demand life to change!
Or, you spend your life in longing for altered states, reaching for them, ignoring the demands of your current life!
Or, foolishly thinking you can navigate in the altered states without serious mind training,
assuming you can control Uncontrollable.
This list can go on and on!
What is the difference of trained and un-trained mind going through altered states?
I will tell you how trained mind does it, and you see if your mind is ready,
then I don’t need to tell you, you will tell yourself.
Trained mind enters the altered space with Intent.
Intent is not intention.
Intent doesn’t come from thinking of what you want (aka what thinking mind wants)
Intent is the Will of the Human being
If there is no Will, there is no Intent,
everything else will be intention, and will not be enough to navigate through the altered state in a beneficial way.
Who has a right to a Will? Every human being,
but if the human being is under control of their thoughts, habits, emotions, lead by unconscious,
human being is considered asleep, not conscious -
asleep to his own Consciousness, his own Will, to Himself.
This kind of human being needs to train their mind to follow his Will, not the other way around.
But a good news, there is another possibility for those who are not ready to guide themselves.
Until the mind is trained, one can submit his own mind to the Will of the trained individual,
a Guide, a Shaman,
the one who worked his ass to train their mind (sounds funny, but its serious)
to guide them into altered states and after!
Please, take psychedelics and any mind altering substances seriously,
I was moved to write this because something very unfortunate happened with people I know,
and there is no help at this moment, other then they will have to go through very serious consequences,
loosing their rights for freedom even for this very life they were trying to avoid.
Did you ever thought how magnificent this everyday life is?
How this very life is already altered state?
We are alive and walking, how incredible to have this possibility!
We are free to think, free to breath, free to feel - how precious is that!
It is easy to loose all that, not valuing and being stupid!
Don’t be stupid, trust those who have more experience in this area.
You would trust a good mother on how to hold, comfort and guide her child to relax,
likewise, a good guide can hold the right space for you to experience safely and guide your mind into right understanding of what has been experienced.
I know there are many un-wholesome guides and shamans, either with un-wholesome Intent
or just not being trained properly, makes it not easy to choose without experience,
be aware of that as well.
Don’t allow to be led into the decisions and experiences by people who think they know,
but in reality they know shit about you,
they take no responsibility for luring people, influencing people into such experiences.
The idea that they think psychedelics helpful for everybody comes from grandiosity of their ego
and their pure irresponsibility for their own words!
Don’t fall for that!
And in times now when every other shaman and guru is fake
and do not take responsibilities for consequences of their own words,
your MUST take responsibility to make such a decision, every time!
Do not look what Jonses do, Jonses now into psychedelics as a means
to achieve more success in material realm,
or escape difficulties of their current life.
This does not make a right Intent, and sooner or later
they will have to pay for their trips to the realms that they have no Rights in.
I hope you got my point, I intentionally went on and on, for some to get annoyed,
for others to start thinking before they jump on the Psychedelic bandwagon.
At this point it would be very right for you to ask me why I have a right to talk about it and give you such a “sermon”.
For those who don’t know me, I wrote a book Buddha on a Bull which is available everywhere on Amazon and similar, you can read about my own journey in training the mind and having such experiences in the past (1998-2012), and decide for yourself if I am qualified enough to write these suggestions for you. And if you do not trust me on verbal suggestions and I am not qualified enough for you, then find someone who is, it's IMPORTANT before you jump into experiments with altered states. 🔥🔥🔥
