The battle between heart and the self (fear)

@Charlotte Great! :) IMO the world needs more less militant, less dogmatic vegans to improve the mainstream perception of veganism, such that it can hopefully scale to the masses.

Portuguese is awesome! It's good that you have friends who are natives because my experience, it is very difficult to learn a language if you have no motivation to learn it, e.g. you want to visit the country soon, have friends there or something like that. 

Just in case you didn't know already, duolingo.com is a great place to start :)

Have a great day!


Knowing is not enough. We must apply.
Willing is not enough. We must do.

I second that, it works really well :)

Exactly! I'm finding that saying absolutely nothing and just leading by example is more effective. 

 

Yes... Learning anything with no motivation is pretty pointless isn't it... Your definitely more prone to procrascination and even giving up. 

 

Oh perfect! Thanks for the recommendation I'll check that out now! 

Hope you have an awesomesauce day yourself my good man 🤓

I see you comment a lot on nutrition-related topics and just wanted to say thank you! I find your contributions especially insightful helpful, a real pleasure to read your comments!

thanks mate :) glad someone finds it helpful. To me it feels like I always get opportunity to refresh stuff from college haha :D Love reading your comments as well...you have an excelent broad perspective and seem to see things from many different angles instead of sticking to one opinion. One of the reasons why I come to this forum is the abundance of high quality comments that you don't see anywhere else really.

My head's fucking mashed at the minute. I'm paranoid as fuck in my own head. I don't know what's real anymore. 

I'm unbelievably aware of self delusion that I don't know if I'm self deluding anymore. I'm paranoid I'm microdosing too much. What if this is the psychedelics fucking with my head? 

I've got to a dose now where it's literally just below threshold. This is how people go mad innit? 

 

or is it? It could just be more thought. I'm doing my own head in. All day yesterday people were giving me this vibe I was giving this vibe and I was so aware of myself I was like am I? But that could just be more thought 😅

I'm so busy at the moment. Gym 5 night's a week for rehabilitation with my injury (it got crazy out of control) and loads of other shit. 

 

Hold on... I've just realised something... This could be because I'm due on my period... I know what thought gets like at that time. Erratic. 

I need to ground myself rapid. I can feel fear again. 

Fuck it then... Come at me fear. Met fear too many times to know the game.

There is learning somewhere for me and I'm not sure what it is. It keeps coming up and going then coming. It comes in small wave's, there's a message hidden within. I'm ready to see it..I want to learn. 

 

I've also been constantly thinking about DMT all the time for some reason. I've tried actively letting it go but it keeps coming back round, feels right to pursue it. Not gonna think too much into it just gonna do it. Maybe the message is in there. 

 

 

fuck

 🤯

😆

Are you really 100% sure psychedelics aren't modifying and fucking your brain ?
I mean ok, they aren't addictive, but that doesn't mean they can't have side effect that fucks you up on the long run.

I find it super irresponsible from Leo to advocate for them without saying there could be side effect, and possible brain chemistry disorder
It's not like there is that much study on them, most of them are illegal, new or rarely used ...

Also, are they really getting you anywhere you couldn't go without them ?
I for sure never needed them and I'm pretty fine, Natasha too, and many others.

Your choice to take that risk.

No I'm not. I mean but what is modification and fucking with the brain anyway? 

I can never be sure until one day I might find myself on a mental health ward but if that is the way shit goes then that's the way shit goes. I don't perceive mental health issues like I used to shin. There isn't an 'issue' there. In comparison to what exactly? 

I do feel my time with mushrooms is coming to end, I don't know why. 

Leo does outline risks but at the end of the day it's our responsibility to do our research and our responsibility ultimately.

This is hugely hormone related. I'm literally observing the shift's hour by hour. One minute I'm knackered next minute I'm productive and happy af , next half hour I'm insecure as shit. 😅

You’re crazy (AS FUCK), just admit it. You don’t need any of these tools to go mad 😅. But perhaps it’s time to take a break, have you allowed for integration to happen after your trip? 

What are you trying to prove to yourself, and are you trying to chase something psychologically? 

Check your body intunement, is it speaking to you? When in doubt, bring love (acceptance) to that doubt. 

Take care char 

edit: btw I’ve had LSD on my mind recently as well

I've had something similar during my recent panic/anxiety attack session. Excess emotional baggage came up on surface and shit hit the fan at the snap of the fingers. Drop everything on weekend, hit your nearest nature reserve and take it all in for 12 hours. The mind needs a reset. 

+ (materialist advice) take good care of your nutrition, could be lack of calming neurotransmitters and excess cortisol production. Good fats and good sources of protein ;) 

++ Australian Bush Flower Essence have a remedy called "Calm & Clear" sold in most Neal's Yard places , might help :)

😂 Your a bloody legend. Made me giggle. 

Your absolutely right, definitely a time to take a break. I realised this yesterday. Just gonna up the meditation and leave mushys alone. 

Yeah I'd say I've allowed for integration BUT there is no black and white answer is there with regards to integration. There's no instructions. 

Am I trying to prove anything to myself or chase something? In my opinion I'd say no. I just become more aware and conscious of my own delusions/ego so I'm able to work 'to the point' if that makes sense? 

Yeah my body is definitely communicating a strong message to me and I know what it is. Take a break, relax, ground yourself.

Oh has it? You gonna act on it?

Hope your feeling okay after your session ❤️ I'm glad it came up for you. Is everything okay now? You managing okay? 

Love your advice Michael, spoken deeply to me.

Thanks so much for the other advice, I honestly never omit the nutrition, it's a way of life. 

Oh I'll look into the bush flower. Thanks bud

This is the most beautiful thing, you get to create all your limitations, the integration is simply watching the self come and go, continuously falling in love with every aspect both positive and negative. There's no true change without complete love and acceptance

Not sure 'to the point' is something i understand exactly as there isn't an actual point. We are forever groundless whether we choose to think so or not :) Is it possible to trust and love ourselves completely? (this is the true test we have been sent here to do imo)

There's only one way to find out if it's possible to consciously create all the thoughts you desire with the focus of a reality you wish to see

I don't believe it was a true desire, i wont force it but if it manifests as a potential opportunity with the right setting ill gladly embrace such an experience

This is literally what I have been doing. Just observing the ebb and flow of change with acceptance (with work) of everything.

It's tough to communicate what I mean. You're absolutely right.

Definitely I'm starting to realise this. 

Yeah this morning has been fucking eye opening and healing with regards to self love. 

Will update journal later. 😊
