A kind of Jacob's ladder, climbing up to soul level.
You can now download entire albums off Youtube, so I decided to download some of Rolling Stone's greatest albums of all time. Well, after downloading a bunch, I decided to listen to them. THEY KINDA SUCKED. Also, the sound quality was horrible. We never should have given up the old 33 rpm albums with the big artistic covers that you could actually look at while listening to the music.
So anyway. After the album disappointment, I decided to download some Buddhist lectures. I stumbled across this guy 'Pasada' talking about the 'Heart Sutra'. One thing that salvia does is mimic the Buddhist ego wiping during meditation. Also, in the Heart Sutra, One of the major themes is the idea of how everything is in a flux. Nothing is permanent, everything is constantly in the process of becoming/winding down.
My salvia visuals show something similar to things in a flux. My visuals are constantly moving, constantly changing. I wonder if salvia is showing us the flux or impermanence of objectified reality? Also, I always get a salvia feeling of some kind of background peace or equanimity when I do plain leaf. Maybe salvia is showing me the Buddhist (non)concept of 'emptiness'?
Can we be patched up to a higher version of ourself?
Yeah, maybe we can be patched up during the actual salvia experience, but I can't say that we remain patched up after we come down. I always return to the same old fucked up, loser slob I was before the trip. Maybe incrementally we patch ourselves up without our knowing it's happening.
I downloaded "Never Mind the Bollocks" because I was a late comer to the whole Sex Pistols thing. When I listen to it now, those kids wern't all that radical. They were just a bunch of kids having a good time. And the music was pretty good too. I wonder if they'll play at the Olympic opening ceremonies? I DOUBT IT.
burningmouth, out. Back to my boring life.
