Woah, thanks for writing this! I made an account just to post this, but maybe I'll stick around here.
Your description is really inspiring and reminds me of a mushroom experience I had in which while lying in trance the mushrooms spirit directed me to focus on the very back of my skull while looking ahead at the visions. I moved in closer and closer to this pinpoint neural area and crashed into a quantum-hyperspace different-universe who-knows-world. At the time it seemed readily accessible, but these ordinary days I just don't have the concentration for that kind of thing
What you say about salvia "showing what to look for and where," I find that absolutely right on with mushrooms. They give you a tug on the waistcoat. Which is why it's so valuable to be sensitive to your teachers.
Having the world zoom in infinitely is something I heard Alan Watts talking about once. Scientists are always trying to get deeper and deeper into matter so that they can find the building blocks of everything, the prima materia; but as it happens, the more attention you put, the more complex it becomes.
It's wonderful to put this to practice in your own life, observing how different each day feels in the most minute of ways.
I hope to meet la pastora as soon as my plants are mature.
