  1. 5meo is the most powerful susbstance in the world and you should approach it with respect. Think about it as the ultimate glimpse of the divine you can get. Something that imo should be given after an initiation or to "elders", not random people That said, I took it randomly and it has been amazing, but I needed a lot of time to integrate everything. I had no background at all, I was areligious, I didn't have the structure to support such a blast Somebody should create a pathway that leads to eventually taking 5meo
  2. very nice way to word it...
  3. That's exactly my point. If you felt what the teachings are about, you are gonna develop way more through experience rather than study or discussion This forum is more like a gathering place for like-minded people on a similar path, where sometimes you can go and read/write about particular topics you are interested in, which is fine. Far from being personal development, though, let alone spiritual development Im reading a book in which there is a 10 points list of traps in undertaking this sort of path. My favourite is "FUCK YOUR JOURNEY", he means yes, improve yourself, but stop telling us
  4. So, I've dived into mysticism, spirituality, Buddhism, and such. Lost myself in it for a while. Was useful because I needed a lot of integration. But then what? Every tradition/culture ends with saying something like "let the mystery be the mystery". It is unknowable truth. Ok, figure out life is a dream/journey and that you are much more free than you thought, stop being scared of death and have the courage to go down your own personal path, remember to laugh along the way and enjoy all the magic around you.... that's it. Be mindful, appreciate things, don't forget who you are, be true to yourself there's not much more to it. be alive, do stuff. why the constant talk? why the constant search? you cannot figure everything out in this life, might just as well do your best to live it. i used to be in awe listening to Buddhists talk, now it just seems like repetition, their point is just "you identify with your physical body and that makes you suffer", so just zoom out, have a clearer picture of your role and belonging to the universe... done. why indulge in this? why dig deeper? that will take you further away from life instead of taking you closer same with psychedelics, they are a door to heightened perception, but as some famous dude said, once you crossed it you dont need to remain at the entrance i dont know, just a rant, but i tend to agree with people that say "spirituality is not something you talk about, it is not something you teach, it is something you live" of course its very welcome to take people that are unaware under the light, but i dont see the point in talking about this between conscious people
  5. very interesting! will check it out! thanks
  6. Also true. The process of humanity trying and selecting plants and fruits must have been a fun one. Try, spit it out, find out how to cook it, maybe die if poisonous ? Beautiful
  7. Hi guys, I would love to read something from people that are somewhat in the field. I won't bother you with my life story BUT [add 3 paragraphs of life story] anyway, I'm soon going to get my qualifications as expedition leader, as I'm young, energetic, kind of a monkey, love nature, excursions, blah blah so I feel the need to PUSH a little bit and roam the world, the total opposite of settling down but of course I dont want to bullshit in the jungle and in the mountains forever, even though it's cool. that can be fine and i will love the lifestyle, but i'll feel the need to work on something more that is undoubtably consciousness. i first thought about organizing expeditions with a psychedelic experience at the end, and even if that remains an option it might be trickier due to legal reasons and close-mindedness (mabye not in the usa, and i would be fine relocating there for a while, but at some point i would like to get back to switzerland). so my thought was to invent something like multiday excursions with mindfulness, forest bathing, stuff like that. i read a book (https://www.amazon.com/book-vision-quest-transformation-wilderness/dp/0130801100) about these guys that run retreats for vision quest, sort of like a rite of passage, a symbolic death to restart anew, etc. you go with a group in the wilderness, set base camp, then the participants go alone for 3 days and 3 nights in the wild, fasting. there is a whole set of rituals and things you can do meanwhile, anyway starving and being bored to death in the womb of mother earth is supposed to be a life changing experience. and i do believe that. i dont know what im actually seeking here. maybe someone in the field? it does sound very feasible, doesnt it? this could even get huge i would need to partner up with a psychiatrist or a psychologist at least (my ex would do just great ), since i will have wilderness and expedition experience but no recognized authority in the field of therapy. im also fine attending any course that brings me closer to this. you heard about anything? kind of a facilitator but cooler, and maybe even without drugs. just throwing it out here, any comments, feedback is appreciated!!!
  8. Fantastic. Hilarious.
  9. Thanks dude, you literally got the point...........
  10. Why do you think such substances exist? Are they "keys" hidden in the world as a sort of game? Isn't it kinda funny that the most powerful drug (5meo) is found in the venom of a rare toad that lives in deserts and comes to surface just some months a year? Like, you wanna realize God? You gotta search in the most unthinkable of places. What the hell Shrooms growing in cow shit? Seriously? ahahahhahaha what do you guys think?
  11. Since I got a real motivational boost from 1 positive review, I insist https://gregoriopestoni.wixsite.com/the-w-nderer/post/humanity-as-the-smurfs i do feel that sometimes i can write this stuff just because i am in a privileged position. there are people who really are struggling financially, who arent free, what would they do with such an article? wipe their asses with?
  12. i think 30 minutes is fine, when you do it in company you can hold much longer i was with newbies (and i was one) in a kung fu retreat and we all did 30 minutes meditation just dont be silent all the time, sometimes remind to let the thoughts pass, etc, but dont be invasive either
  13. willpower, determination, vision that's all it takes. the rest is a by-product
  14. @aurum i do agree the travel blog is dead boring, just the name takes away all the motivation to read, for me. im trying to do something different, not about travel tips or places, more about the travel experience per se @Razard86 thanks man! its a word play between wanderer and wonderer, that who walks and that who thinks! i thought it was smart
