If you get the message, hang up the phone. For psychedelic drugs are simply instruments, like microscopes, telescopes, and telephones.– Alan W. Watts
It is funny because modern technology and experience sometimes have mutual similarity with the psychedelic stuff and its experience.
It is also better for us to feel so good with no risks by taking advantage of modern technology in order to transcend our narrow experience. A combination of ancient wisdom and modern technology really works.
Every time I listen to a guided meditation of Brain.fm during the meditation, it feels that the session is quite similar to the effect of when using MDMA. Yet the differences are strength of both psychological and physical stimulation, as well as duration of the sensation.
That is why we call both experiences transcendental. That is one of the reasons why Alchemy is called the (inter-dimensional) art of sound, including vibrations and frequencies. The point is that the sound is transcendental.
Without using the strong stuff, without having the side-effect, we would be able to even transcend the duality. Naturally, we gently and gradually transcend with alpha brain wave and effective sound design. The music gives us a very good noise to absorb as well. The only downside is the numbness of our legs. But for me, it is not a problem.
In the same way, it is better for us to master energy work by learning about energy in the day-to-day life. We might be able to see our energetic side by practising energy work. Actually, the magic mushroom provides the similar experience in seeing the energy body with mixed messages and chaotic emotions. It is safe, however, the magic mushroom is not the tool that we can use on a daily basis.
In addition to that, it is profoundly annoying that we confuse our thoughts and perceptions with mixed messages and chaotic emotions, which might come from disintegrated consciousness in the energetic side on a celluar level.
In any case, it is an awesome idea to learn about being here now. Being in the present means to be in the body properly. I think that this is a crucial step in perceiving and using our energetic side effectively in our day-to-day life.
Even if we would have a profound opportunity to have a psychedelic effect on our consciousness, it could be very helpful. Because, in a microcosmic sense, it helps us to reach a kind of the sanctuary, which is pure consciousness and a unified peak experience.
It always starts with our personal "peak" experience.
