Terence McKenna pointed out that "the profundity of [halluncinogenic inebriation] and its potential for a positive feedback into the process of reorganizing the personality should have long ago made psychedelics an indispensable tool for psychotherapy."

Growing up in a small town just a few blocks from where Neil Armstrong grew up, I shared a similar vision and desire with that brave soul who came before me. We both had a deep passion for adventure and wanted to travel to worlds where nobody has been before. He chose outer space. I chose inner space. I'm a bit jealous of him though because he had others with him to speak of his journeys. I know there are other psychonauts out there, but sometimes I feel that I've traveled so deep that even those other brave souls don't understand me or where I've been. Not the best at translating the realms, encounters and communications with other entities I've met on that journey. It's ok with me, I've accepted that even amongst misfits I'll always be a misfit. I'm ok with it, but sometimes that journey does bring up a desire to communicate those experiences. That's why I do this form of art. I'm humbled by this majestic multidimensional universe. And my travels have only deepened my love for Pachamamma and all life that is here. I've only become more grateful for this form I hold now and the people I've shared space with. It's sad to know how powerful we all truly are yet to see so many asleep to all the ways we are being poisoned by those that have temporal power and believe they are in control. It's sad to watch ignorance destroy this planet exponentially each day. We are in a flat out race between a mass awakening/global healing and total self/planetary annihilation. We could travel this universe in harmony as One on this planet, fully united in Love and Light, this I know for sure. And I often feel that will happen. But sometimes, I feel totally despondent and that we don't stand a chance in this "race". But tomorrow is a brand new day and every present moment is a gift to stay centered in Love and pray in a better world. Whether we as a collective save ourselves and this planet, I will fight to the end. And I will hold my Light. This I promise.

Day 13 of the #novvinylchallenge Favorite Song Off of Your Favorite Record :
I post this record so much, but these things ask for favorites soooo... My favorite song off of Bloodlet's Entheogen is either Shell or One And Only... Depends on the day.
..."The first rule of all ancient religions is 'Know Thyself', just like a onion we peel away the layers and find nothing in the center, yet if we keep looking closer to that center IT keeps going into the infinite. IT is like we are trying to look back at our own eyes and IT just keeps escaping our view, so we look into the eyes of another and see the infinite, that which is you! Layer by layer we strip away the dross of the false, just as the alchemical process of revealing gold from ore, not unlike a stone sculptor who removes stone to reveal the beauty of their art, we must dissolve the illusions of the ego mask to re-discover who we truly are. Many hold onto their image and defend IT til their last dying breath, not unlike an actor or actress who has forgotten who they really are behind all the roles they have only chosen to play. Are you acting or are you being You? Are you repeating the habits and patterns of a conditioned image of ego, a mask that has only been passed down the archetypal flow? The answer to this becomes very clear the moment someone asks us the simple question...who are you? If we give our name that our parents gave us, or the jobs we do on a daily level, these are all calling cards of the mask of our ego! Looking closer to our dreams, what we see is that our consciousness does exist beyond the limits of our everyday thinking mind. So who is IT that goes through the experiences of our daily dreams? Who is IT that stands behind the awareness of our everyday consciousness? As we do the shadow work of peeling away the layers of our mask, and retrace our steps back to the days of our childhood, we will begin to see that spark of wonder and magic through that which 'activates' our body, as we experience the rebirth of our true spirit by making the unconscious conscious!" #AlistarValadez @dmt_metal
