On Psychedelics

An increasing number of people (mainly millennials) are getting interested in psychedelic drug usage.
Consequently, more and more actions and awareness are raised in this space, which is really great.

Personally, I'm eager to see what more improvements psychedelics will have on people and the world.

They temporarily change the way we think, can cure addictions and show us that we are nothing - and everything.

Who knows if humans were ever supposed to do this?

Although there is arguably some magic to their usages, it's a mistake thinking they'd solve all our problems magically.
We need to be very careful with these explorations.

Emphasising education not only on the consumption but everything that comes before and after.

People should be prepared. Of course Set & Setting is important. Having some clue as to how you think, how you think.

Having practised meditation will be hugely beneficial during an experience.

Having already tried mind-altering substances will de-stigmatise what's happening.

Curiosity, although a very valid reason in my opinion, shouldn't be the only drive to trying psychedelics.

A lot of people find themselves lost, broken or unable to make sense of what's happening. This is even more intense after a bad trip.

It's really important at this point not to feel alone.
Brain material, talks, literature, thoughts processes and tales of fellow "travelers" are extremely helpful during an experience and the "recovery" period.

They key is remembering it will pass. Like everything in life.

Think of your brain as a snow globe. After an experience, it'll be all shaken up and quite uncomfortable. After a while dust settles down to a more mindful base :)

Some feel like trying to put everything behind. Never talking or thinking about it again. But the mind doesn't work that way.

"If you choose to not deal with an issue, then you give up your right of control over the issue and it will select the path of least resistance."

Community can play a big part in this. This is kinda available with Reddit and forums but nothing replace real-life interactions.

On with my day!
