“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 human consciousness as much as I could.”
― Steve Jobs
I was anxiously driving, slightly over the speed limit, and I had just finished a monotonous 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 he’s 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?” So 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.
I 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. Then, as darkness overpowered the light, I cut the tiny LSD tab in half and started there.
I put the acid under my tongue and let it soak in for a while. Knowing that tetrahydrocannabinol [(THC) the psychoactive ingredient within cannabis] was just a mild form of LSD, I knew what to expect.
Approximately half an hour into it, it was like this filter vanished from my brain.
I now saw very vivid, brighter colours than I’d ever seen before. Everything around me wasn’t moving per se, more shifting in wavelength motions.
Finding Purpose Through Acid
I didn’t feel like I would 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; I felt a sense of love.
Shortly after, another 30 minutes would pass, so I popped the other half a tab.
Well, that soaked in. But then, I saw 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 could hear and see as well.
It flew towards the black lights, taped onto the garage roof, making figure eights between them.
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, and 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 galaxy is in its bubble, these bubbles are all fused.)
These tiny bubbles stuck together, reflecting the blacklight colours that bounced off the poster’s covered walls.
Its tiny little stick man figure-like legs rubbed themselves together, then rubbed its eyes.
Every time its eyes were rubbed, I saw a small, almost static electricity, energy being transferred.
Its eyes were also changing colours, each eye-rub.
Seeing the Earth’s Vibrations
I could see its vibration. I could see an “mmmm” vibration coming from it towards me.
You know, when you are “OM-ing” during meditation?
It was the em from that.
When done correctly, 80% of the breathing should be vibrating the lower chakras, deep within. The other 20% should be the “mmmm” sound, stimulating the top chakras.
The whole body, at that point, should be vibrating, projecting off 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 colours were like a bright teal.
A splash of jealousy took over, only for a minute, because he could fly. At that moment, I truly understood how and why we’re all connected.
It didn’t matter if you were an insect, cat, human, or other species of life. I truly understood. We were all united to 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 beautiful state of well-being.
Anything from life lessons, to poetry, to a touch of non-sense. This whole trip showed me the love for anything and everything.
As the sun was starting to peek through from the east.
I stood on my deck looked up.
The moon and stars were still visible.
On one side, each star was twinkling; but it was sparkling rainbow-like colours, very bold, bright shades.
The scenery was fascinating.
Now, by no means am I saying this powerful entheogen is for everyone.
But if one chooses to do so, it’s all about your state of mind and proper setting.
I believe, soon, they will re-incorporate LSD, as a medicine, through moral psychology/psychiatry.
From that experience, I knew my purpose here on earth, now.
That purpose of mine is to write.
So, from that day forward, I would start to do so.
Lysergic Acid Diethylamide showed me life in its 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.
