Peeks and Peaks (realizations, a ha moments and letting go)


Recommended Posts

Thought it would be fun to share glimpses and insights here.

Sometimes it's an insight and other times it's synchronicity, other times something released, let go of or seen as it is. They sometimes make really funny stories. 

 

Last summer I read a story about a shark attack and a key detail was that stuck out to me was that wetsuits are dangerous because sharks mistake people in them for seals. I spent the summer feeling afraid of swimming in the place I always went because there was a shark sighting there that summer. I knew this was stupid because shark attacks are incredibly rare. Sorta wrestled with discord about this all summer, letting my fear keep me from something I loved to do. By the end of the summer as it was getting cold I realized what an amazing idea it was to buy a wetsuit, so I bought one and extended my swimming season out by weeks. I laughed a lot about how the idea to do that occurred to me. Life is always working out for you.

I had a funny moment when I took mushrooms for the very first time.. I was very anxious and heard all kinds of stories about psychedelics triggering psychosis in people and I was afraid that something like that would happen to me.  So I took like 1-1,5g and went into the woods with a good friend, I was very restless and extremely alert, always watcing how reality changed around me, how the colors changed, how the sounds changed, etc. And I was watching my thoughts extremely observantly, because I was afraid that they might suddenly turn into psychotic/uncontrollable thoughts... So we walk down that path through the forest, when suddenly I heard a murmur, seemingly coming from nowhere / inside my head. Just an incoherently murmuring voice, I couldn't hear what it was saying... quietly at first, then louder and louder. It wasn't one voice, but two. And I couldn't understand what they were saying...
I thought "fuck, that's it. Now you've done it, now you're hearing voices, that's it, you're crazy, why did you take mushrooms?!" And then I turned around and saw:

Two women were just walking a bit quicker behind us, and were talking to each other.

Fooled by thoughts😂 from then on, it was quite beautiful

That’s a funny mushroom story. I like to be in nature when I take them. I usually take a gram or less, it helps to feel more connected to everything. Also Mandy isn’t it funny how fear keeps us from doing certain things. Jaws scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. Lmao

Yes! I thought sharks were about as scary as dragons or unicorns until there was a sighting of a bullshark in the river I like to swim in. 😆

I don't live anywhere near where there are sharks, but.. aren't sharks actually dangerous? They can eat you, right?🤔😂

So this is kind of weird. I had a dream about a fire breathing Dragon a few nights ago. It was flying around destroying everyone and everything. We were all trying to hide from it. Anyone know how to interpret dreams?

I've learned that  consciousness is sovereign in a way, and to the extent that I value the voices therein whether "internal or external," my perspective on this has changed as I've learned, grown, matured.  I realize people at different stages on the spiral are going to interpret what I say differently and my goal is to take account of all perspectives when I post in this community.

"Imposter syndrome", the guidance of negative emotion when we think we aren't worthy enough isn't saying anything about your worthiness or lack thereof, but the assumption of a separate self. Which is indeed... an imposter. 🤣

Love it when thought is so RIGHT and so WRONG simultaneously.

Relationships don't exist! There's only expression. 

This present moment is what you want to express yourself as!

Conditioning is the most subtle form of thought. 

We make a condition that in order to be at peace we must be alive, but this actually makes us anxious about death, peace is always here 😌......when I'm aware of it 😉.

The nature of nature is peace, the animals are the zen masters! 

You are the master of balance, harmony, equanimity! 

Deep breathing, relaxed body, and general calm is our natural state, but we are conditioned to always be on edge 😬.

When you breathe deep and watch the breath, you are a moth to the flame of Love ❤️
