The Amanita Mushroom – AKA fly agaric

The Amanita mushroom is what many believe to be the burning bush that allowed Moses to talk to God. You can find this beautiful and magical mushroom sprinkled throughout popular culture from the smurfs homes to Super Mario Brothers. I think it’s interesting that the Amanita is what turns Mario into Super Mario.

I have yet to work with the Amanita. But after doing some in depth research it is now on the top of my list. I am lucky because I am currently living in an area where they grow abundantly in the wild.

I have read that this particular mushroom is what the prophets of the Bible their visions allowing them to commune with God. Based on my own experiences with mushrooms and ayahuasca I believe that is exactly how the prophets received their visions.

Magic Mushrooms in Religion and Alchemy


I have been reading the book Magic Mushrooms in Religion and Alchemy by Clark Heinrich.

So far I am amazed at what I am reading. The reason is that so much I learned from mushrooms directly and my experiences completely corollate to what I am reading in this book.

The author has discovered references to the mushroom in all sort of sacred texts from the Bible to the Bhagavad Gita.

For me this is such incredible confirmation that what I have experienced with my work with mushrooms and what I continue to experience is what mushrooms have been bringing for humans for thousands of years. The religious institutions have come in and hidden the truth about mushrooms in these texts and demonized what is and will be one of the most direct paths to enlightenment.

I am now for certain that there is something here and what I am experiencing is real. I knew this before but at least now I have some clear documentation to back it up.

This experiment has just gotten started.

Lancing the Darkness

Image“Everything that is secret will be brought out into the open. Everything that is hidden will be uncovered. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight. What you have whispered to someone behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops.”

Recently Lance Armstrong came out and admitted that he had been doping when took first place in several Tour De France races. It got me thinking about darkness and the role it plays in our lives.

When there is something in our lives that we feel shame about we often choose to hide it. We see something in ourselves and either because we think it is shameful, our friends and family call it shameful, or society thinks its shameful we feel stuck. So we take this “something” and by labeling it as bad we create a little monster. We take that monster and put in deepest darkest part of our being and try our best to forget about it. This is the process of whispering.

However, what happens next is this little monster starts getting pissed off and starts making noise. Perhaps in the beginning its just a whimper but as time goes on and the monster we created gets older it starts groaning. If it continues to be ignored and it will start screaming and yelling until it gets the acknowledgement it needs to be freed from the dark place where we originally locked it up.

This can be seen in many public areas.

Elliot Spitzer, the New York governor who was to be the first Jewish president of the United States loved having sex with beautiful woman. This was not acceptable because high profile politicians do not have sex with beautiful women. And how dare he for that matter :) So he creates for himself a little monster and hides him in the dark recesses of his heart. Then the little guy starts groaning. Elliot starts seeing call girls and finds the sexiest most beautiful and most expensive call girl he can find. To keep up with the costly groans of his monster he starts tapping into taxpayer money to continue feeding it. Then the monster starts screaming. To shut him up Elliot than starts a campaign to erase prostitution from New York and becomes its biggest advocate. Until eventually his monster is freed by Elliot being caught and exposed as the New York City prostitution rings best customer.

We see this same scenario often with right wing Christian politicians men who are attracted to other men. To them being gay is shameful and “an abomination”. Their little monster screams are covered up by secret rendezvous in dark hotels at night and fervant preaching and protests against homosexuality on the weekends. They attack their own shame by attacking those who are not ashamed by trying to ban gay marriage and with that demonize the parts of themselves they are unable to make peace with. Just google anti gay politicians caught and gay scandals and marvel at the massive list of incredible stories.

The Catholic church is another great example of this that is so obvious I don’t feel the need to pontificate on it at all.

But it’s not just big scandals that this applies to. The same is true for innocent things like eating, drinking, smoking, drug use. Every thing that we are trying to keep secret because of the shame will be yelled from the roof tops. The greater the shame the louder the scream. You can guarantee that whatever someone is yelling about or demonizing is something they are wrestling with in their own heart.

Then there are those who have been abused by others. We victimize these people and project our own shame on them. They fight an uphill battle where they not only have to deal with their own shame but everyone else’s also.

I wrote this months ago and am only posting it now. We are seeing exposure of not only individuals but entire systems and institutions. Big bank are being exposed and coming down as well as governments. Edward Snowden and the NSA leaks are only the beginging and like we have heard over and over again in the media, it is only the tip of the iceberg.

The little monsters make a lot of noise. They do this because they don’t want to be ignored. They will get louder and louder until we acknowledge them.

We will find healing from the screams when we stop the whispering and start talking with “inside voices”

The Ladder Song

No one knows where the ladder goes
You’re going to lose what you love the most
You’re not alone in anything
You’re not unique in dying

I feel estranged every now and then
Fall asleep reading science fiction
I want to fly in your silver ship
Let Jesus hang and Buddha sit

It’s on now
The days are long now
The ups and the sundowns
And a twisting mind

If I got to go first
I’ll do it on my terms
I’m tired of traitors
Always changing sides
They were friends of mine

Don’t hang around once the promise breaks
Or you’ll be there when the next one’s made
Kiss the feet of a charlatan
Some imagined freedom

All the rest is predictable
You can say you’re the first to know
Bought a mantra to concentrate
Car alarm or hissing snake

I know now
How it’s going to turn now
You’ve got to calm down
Or I’ll lose my place
Got to get to the center
Got to get to the concert
Run off with a dancer
Going to celebrate

We’ll welcome the new age
Covered in warrior paint
Lights from the jungle to the sky
See now a star is born
Looks just like a blood orange
Don’t it just make you want to cry?
Precious friend of mine

Will I know when it’s finally done?
This whole life is a hallucination
You’re not alone in anything
You’re not alone in trying to be

The Event

There is a document circulating lately that I find very interesting.

The Document is titled the event and describes an event soon to take place that will be the first step to massive changes in our world. To someone who is just hearing about this talk of massive change it will sound like pure science fiction. And for those people I recommend reading the document simply for its entertainment value of being some really good and well thought out science fiction that is tied so perfectly to current events.

This 16 page document describes a resistance movement going on behind the scenes who is on the brink of throwing out the current behind the scenes rulers of the planet.

If what they say is true many good things are just around the corner. First off the corrupt bank system will be replaced with a fair one and there will be financial freedom for everyone.

We think the information about NSA security leaks are a big deal but according to this document we haven’t seen anything yet when it comes to exposing information about what has really been going on.

After we have all digested and choked down information that may cause a little bit of confusion for some we will be ready for the healing.

First contact with other star nations will happen and we will be able to learn all about the universe from those who have been traveling it for eons. We will be given new technologies that will make life sofa king great.

A time of great change is just on the horizon. I personally can’t wait. I believe this document to be very close to fact as opposed to fiction based on what I have experienced and learned over the past couple years. It is totally in line from what I recently learned in my mushroom experience.

I recommend everyone to read it. It is long but worth it. Even if it is science fiction. If its not it recommends having a weeks worth of food available for the week following “The Event”. I think it’s a good idea to be self sufficient but I also think that everyone will be taken care of by friends and neighbors.

We will find out who we really are. Loving beings who just want to be happy and free and totally willing to help out there fellow man and woman.

Here it is. Enjoy

A Letter to President Obama


Dear President Obama,

I am an average Joe. In the same breath I see myself as the most unique Joe on the planet. I’ve spent most of my life in the Christian church and several years as a Christian minister. Not fighting for politics but helping people find Jesus. I don’t do that anymore as I left religion altogether about 5 years ago. Since then I have expanded what I think I know and have found all the answers I need. I know a lot but I also realize there is so much that I don’t know.

I have been a fan of yours since I first heard about you. My whole family are fans of yours. My brother organized Obama parties in LA for both your 2008 and 2012 elections. My mom baked Obama cakes out of mashed potatoes when you won your first election. My mom loves you so much. She sees you and refers to you as the Prince of Peace.

Despite the continued wars throughout your presidency. We have stuck with you because we believe that you are have been fighting for the light from a very dark place. However, with the recent NSA revelations this has changed. For me it isn’t that I haven’t known that we are being spied on. Of course we have been. What changed as to my support of you was your response to the NSA’s surveillance. It is as if you are trying to sweep it under the table saying it is just what we have to do. I don’t agree. I think if someone with some power has the courage to stand up and speak the truth being a true Prince or Princess of Peace, true world peace can and will become a reality. But it seems like you and those in your cabinet are still wanting to continue the charade. Why? Why can’t we start moving towards real change. Especially since it’s possible.

I have ideas. In fact I have an idea that I believe is so good that we could rid the world of war, poverty, terrorism, injustice, rape, murder, crime, and all the things we no longer want in a very short time. You would think an idea like this would cost billions. But this is cheap. My idea could cost as little as $100,000 to get it going. If someone was to invest a mere 1,000.000 into it I believe we could change the world in a very short time. There will be change without war, fighting, violence, or anger. It sounds too good to be true, I know, but it is a reality.

I realize that there is so much that the government knows that it hasn’t been fully honest about. Some say the people are not ready to know. Or that the truth would cause anger and panic. But we both know that truth wants to be known and it will make itself known one way or another. When a cheating spouse continues to hide their actions despite the ever growing voice inside that says, “Hey, this has gone on for too long. Let’s come into the light.”, In those cases when truth comes out it is ugly. However, when truth is met in the dark corners where we have hid it and brought out gently allowing all to see it as it is then it doesn’t have to be ugly.

I would like to know why the banks are too big to fail. In my opinion it is time we allow them to fail and come up with solutions to help us transition to a economic system with integrity. Let’s get rid of lobbyists and install ways of working with the people to come up with solutions that already exist and are waiting to be implemented.

I would like to know who is really running the show. I know it’s not you. Part of me wishes it was because I believe that you could be truly a great leader if you were given the chance. I feel like I can see your heart when you speak. Regardless of what you are saying I see a beautiful heart.

I would like to know the real reason for non-stop war in the middle east. It goes way beyond oil doesn’t it?

UFO’s? I know that you know they are real. It blows my mind that the subject gets so little attention when there are sightings happening on video every day all over the world. The video footage that is being captured by every day people on their smart phones is incredible. Yet the media won’t report on these. They are limited to YouTube. Why is this? I believe contact with others in the universe would be a good thing. I have had plenty of my own sightings and experiences and know that they are here to help us create a better world. I think it is time this truth is told. Yes, we need to tread lightly and speak this truth gently. But I think it is time we start.

Why does the media have to be so controlled? Why can’t we have free media. Again it may be a little chaotic at the beginning when the muzzle is first removed. But after everything is out they will stop barking and sensationalizing everything and start discussing solutions. Have you seen that Conan O’Brien prank that exposed how orchestrated to mainstream media is. You have got to hand it to Conan. That was an ingenious move. Can we let the media say what they want to say and let the chips fall where they may?

The drug war is just sad. Alcohol is a horrible drug and it is being advertised and pushed on everyone while harmless drugs are being labeled as deadly. Marijuana is harmless comparable to alcohol but I am not talking about marijuana. There are plants labeled as dangerous drugs that are proven to heal most diseases, cure addiction, and help cure mental illness. Right now I am talking about plants of the amazon rain forest like ayahuaska but there are others like it. Ayahuaska is a miracle plant. I have seen people cured of diabetes, cancer, depression, and alcohol addiction from the use of this plant. What would be the harm of letting everyday people know what I am sure government already knows.

Which leads me to healthcare. Why are allowing our world to be so dependant on the pharmaceutical companies? From my point of view we are required by law to rely on the pharmaceutical companies. My father died of brain cancer 3 years ago. He lived a good life and it was devastating to the family to watch him die. However, what saddened me more was in the years following his death learning that others like him had cured themselves by using holistic medicines and plants labeled as drugs from the Amazon. Yes, my dad would still be alive if it wasn’t for the US health care system. They actually discouraged him from taking a holistic approach and because my father, who was an Iranian born US citizen, trusted the US health care system more than anyone else he died. He lived a great life and I am not angry about his death. I hope that soon others in his same position can be advised on how to beat cancer. We both know this is totally possible.

I can go on and on but you get what I am saying.

I realize that it is much different from your position. You are aware of issues and road blocks that I know nothing about. But I believe there is always a way.

I believe in you President Obama. I don’t care if you were born in Hawaii, Kenya, or in a illuminati cave underground. I have heard all the stories and possibilities and I don’t rule anything out.  I know you like the Star Wars saga. Even if you were raised to be the Darth Vader of the dark side of the force I don’t see any other way than you rising up against the emperor and joining the fight for the light. But I am going to believe a different story for now. I am going to believe that you are Luke Skywalker and you are kicking ass for the light.

I believe in you so much. As I have said before I see your heart and I see myself in you. I am not you and I am sure that if I could see and feel what you see and feel I would realize that just as things are not as they seem things are not as simple as they might seem from my position.

I am requesting that you trust in the light. Trust in yourself that you can and will be the greatest leader the world has ever known because you will stand up for truth and expose everything that has ever been kept hidden in darkness.

I am so willing to help. If you were to approach me authentically I would fully support you. I would take on whatever job you thought necessary to best support the cause. I would help you change the world.

I may be an average Joe but I am also the happiest man on this planet and I hold no grudges toward anyone. I believe with 100% certainty that as hard as things have been on this planet we are on the brink of major change and life will be a dream in comparison to what we have endured. I am willing to do whatever it takes to help you if you request my help. I am a very good speaker and can motivate and unite people. I can write letters in my own unique way. I can meet with individuals one on one. I can create a system that will unite the entire world for good with no more need for violence of any kind. Nobody needs to be left behind and if this were in fact Star Wars even Emperor Palpatine would have a change of heart and join in the Ewok celebration at the end of the day. This is my hope and I believe this is what will be at the end of the day.

After all everything will be all right in the end… if it’s not all right then it’s not yet the end. Right?
