  1. To me, he is a good man, but a materialist thinker. I'd say stage Green thinking. He gives lots of standard "everybody love each other" wisdom. But, higher up Nonduality concepts, he has no idea.
  2. LSD

    We'll get there. We are getting there, it's just happening very slowly. Pot is almost fully legal at the federal level in all of the U.S., and mushrooms are starting down the same path. I predict that within 15 years mushrooms, LSD and DMT will be legalized. Things like cocaine, ketamine, and MDMA will most likely stay controlled, and for good reason as it can easily be abused.
  3. LSD

    I'm actually very glad I did it with a friend, instead of alone. There was so much laughter that would not have been possible if I were alone. I was doing it for enjoyment, not an inward spiritual journey. For me such things are best shared with good friends.
  4. I took LSD for the first time in 4 years last week. 2 gel-tabs. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed LSD. It was pure heart-opening joy. All my senses were heightened. Everything led to deep laughter. Laughter so long and deep, it hurts (in the best way possible). There was zero side-effects. I'm going to buy a vile of acid soon so I can experiment with microdosing every day. I like the version of 'me' on acid, so I'd like to see if microdosing daily will bring about my best 'self'. If you've never tried LSD, I highly recommend it. Forget all the negative propaganda you may have heard. Go into it without fear, and enjoy the experience. Just make sure you get it from a very trusted source.
  5. It is not recommended to have 5-MEO be your first psychedelic. Take some time to prepare. I'd start with shrooms at small doses. After a few dozen trips, getting more and more use to higher and higher doses, you can move on to other psychedelics like LSD or DMT. Again start low and work your way up. Get comfortable in trippy states. Practice meditation and letting go /surrendering techniques. Read the entire 5-MEO megathread here. There is tons of valuable information there. Do your research and take your time.
  6. Singular, not plural. Nonduality = One.
  7. So the themes are more Christian religious, than Nonduality/Spiritualism like The Fountain was? Hmmm....doesn't sound like my jam.
  8. Sometimes I wonder if you all do not pay attention to this forum and what Leo's teachings are all about. Your life is a dream. You (God) are literally immortal. Consciousness goes on for eternity.
  9. I'm a big Darren Aronofsky fan, yet I have not seen Mother! yet. I heard it was not good. Could you say more about why you like it so much, and how it connects to spirituality?

  11. Yes, they are unidentified, but one can make some logical assumptions. These crafts can move from one part in the sky to another in an instant. We are talking near light speed type movements. No human technology can even come anywhere close to what these crafts do. And yes, I've seen what they can do myself.
  12. There is already a established example of a moneyless society (albeit for a finite duration). Burning Man is an large-scale event in the Nevada desert. The city is 9 square miles, and has a population of around 100,000. It has an airport, hospitals, fire departments, streets, and a center community hun with it's own café. There is no money transactions allowed in the city (except for ice and the café in the community hub). This society is based off of what is called a 'gifting community'. This is not barter, which is 'I'll give you what I have in exchange for what you have'. This is, 'I will give you what I have, selflessly, and I expect nothing in return'. In a way, it is the opposite of capitalism, which is selfishness. This gifting way of society manifests itself in wonderful ways. With the gifting community, people are always looking for ways to contribute to each other, whether it be helping someone with their living space, volunteering to help construct their art installation, volunteering shifts to help out a camp, or just being a moral booster and water supplier for tired workers. Anywhere you go people will gift you food, alcohol, drinks. People gift drugs, clothes, supplies. There is a saying at BM, "the playa will provide", meaning whatever you need, others will gift it. You might think, "what if someone takes advantage of this?". I've never really seen this happen. It's hard for this way of life to not affect you on a deep level and lead to you wanting to be your best self. Sure, this city, with this model of 'gifting', only exists for one week a year. And it takes a whole lot of capitalistic spending to be able to make the city happen, before we can all enjoy the gifting community temporarily. Still, it gives a glimpse of what could be. It proves that humans flourish in a gifting/contribution based society. But, Burning Man has been moving away from a week-long event in Nevada and more towards regional events that happen year-round. There are regional BM communities all around the world, and they keep that 'gifting community' lifestyle alive year-round. https://regionals.burningman.org. For those that have lived and experienced what is like to live in a contribution based society, there is really no going back. You are always looking for ways to contribute to others in whatever way you can. And maybe this small example of what is possible could catch on and slowly spread to other cultures and societies, and maybe one day be the replacement for capitalism. Where everyone asks what can I do for you, instead of what can everybody else do for me. --------------------------------------------------- The 10 Principles of Burning Man Burning Man founder Larry Harvey wrote the 10 Principles. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception. Radical Inclusion Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community. Gifting Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value. Decommodification In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience. Radical Self-reliance Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on their inner resources. Radical Self-expression Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient. Communal Effort Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction. Civic Responsibility We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws. Leaving No Trace Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them. Participation Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart. Immediacy Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
