“Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life. LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin, and you can’t remember it when it wears off, but you know it. It reinforced my sense of what was important—creating great things instead of making money, putting things back into the stream of history and of human consciousness as much as I could.”
― Steve Jobs
Anxiously driving, slightly over the speed limit, just finished a boring day at work. Finally, days off at last! I was on the way to meet one of my friendly drug dealer pals. When I arrived, he asked, “Would you be interested in something called Lysergic Acid (LSD).” I asked if hes tried it before. “No,” he explained, “But, two of my good friends, said they had an amazing time with it.” Thinking it over for a minute. I had been recently studying about it, so I said, “What the heck, why not?” I traded him, a whole 10 dollars for one tab. Little did I know, at that point, that night my life would be changed forever…
Driving home, even faster now, I impatiently waited for darkness to fall. I set the proper mood within my garage — black lights, a lazy boy, Jimi Hendrix, and other old school tunes, also would listen to #334 The Joe Rogan Experience, with theoretical physicist — DR. Emit Goswami. And of course, set up a spot right beside me for my cat. As darkness overpowered the light, I cut the tiny LSD tab in half, and started there. Put the acid under my tongue, and let it soak in for a while. Knowing very well that, tetrahydrocannabinol [(THC) the psychoactive ingredient within cannabis] was just a mild form of LSD, I kind of knew what to expect. Approximately, half an hour into it, it was like this filter vanished from my brain. I now, was seeing very vivid brighter colors, than I’ve ever seen before. Everything around me, wasn’t really moving per say, more shifting in wave length motions. I didn’t feel like I was going to die; nor did I want to jump out a window; I didn’t feel like I was going mentally ill; I didn’t feel like my brain or body was melting; Just felt a sense of love.
Shortly after, another 30 minutes would go by, so I popped the other half a tab. Well that soaked in, I seen this smaller house fly. Wings weren’t big enough to cause a buzz. Or at least one loud enough to be understood by the human audio perception. It had a vibration though, one that I not only could hear, but see as well. As it flew towards the black lights, it was making figure eights, between both of them, which were taped onto the garage roof. I watched it fly from near the roof, revolving around my head, landing on top of my right hand. I noticed, its left wing had a small tear down the center. I watched its eyes, they looked like Brian Greene’s, bubble multi-universe theory. (The theory is — we are not living in a universe, but a multiverse. Where each universe, is in its own bubble, these bubbles are all fused together.) All these tiny bubbles stuck together, reflecting the reflection of the black light colors, that bounced of the poster covered walls. Its tiny little stick man figure like legs, rubbed themselves together, then rubbed its eyes. Every time it eyes were rubbed, I seen a small, almost static electricity like, energy being transferred. Its eyes were also changing colors, each eye-rub. I could see its vibration, I could see an “emmmm” vibration coming from it towards me. You know, when you are “OM-ing” during meditation? It was the em from that. (When done properly, 80% of the breathe, should be vibrating the lower chakras, deep within. Well, the other 20%, should be the “emmm” sound, stimulating the top chakras. The whole body at that point, should be vibrating, projecting off a positive energy.) The sound “OM” is the universal sound of the world, every human language ever spoke, uses the sounds “OM or AUM.” It was like we were communicating. I got good vibes from my new little friend. His body colors were like a bright teal. A splash of jealousy took over, only for a minute, because he could fly. It was that moment, I truly understood how and why, we’re all connected. It didn’t matter if you were an insect, cat, human, or any other species of life, I truly understood, were all united at some degree.
As the night went on, a few more hours now went by. I felt compelled, to grab paper and a pen, and just started to write. Anything and everything that came to mind. Pages upon pages of notes were written, during this amazingly beautiful state of well-being. Anything from life lessons, to poetry, to a touch of non-sense. This whole trip, showed me love for anything and everything.
As the sun, was just starting to peek through from the east. I stood on my deck, looked up, the moon and stars were still visible. Each star, on one side was twinkling; but it was twinkling rainbow like colors, very bold, bright shades. The scenery was absolutely fascinating.
Now, by no means, am I saying this powerful entheogen, is for everyone. But if one chooses to do so, its all about your state of mind, and proper setting. I believe, in the near future, they will re-incorporate, LSD, as a medicine, through proper psychology/psychiatry. It was from that experience, I knew my purpose here on earth, now. That purpose of mine is to write. From that day forward, I would start to do so. Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, showed me life in its most simplest forms. It put life back into me, gave me a purpose to live. Without that, who knows what would’ve happened, I might not have been here, now, to write this.
