Yup, science is cool.

Only a day after skywatchers in mid- to upper-latitudes around the world were treated to a particularly energetic display of auroras on the night of March 17 as a result of an intense geomagnetic storm, researchers from the University of Colorado announced findings from NASA’s MAVEN mission of auroral action observed on Mars – although in invisible ultraviolet wavelengths rather than visible light.

We ARE the Universe

I just want to take a some time to reflect on how extraordinary us human beings are along with the world around us. Thanks to Neil deGrasse Tyson, he explains the connection between the two, astoundingly. Also, I’d like to give a special thanks to mother earth for putting up with so much of our shit, and still being here. Namaste.

Universal Intellignece

A have a theory…

That like genetic DNA and how parents can pass off a physical or mental disorder,

we pass on a psychological intelligence to our offspring and leaves me to believe, that is how we advance dramatically and become more intelligent through every generation.

Have you ever noticed how quick some children catch on to their surroundings more than other children and it surprises us?

For instance, some children can understand bad behavior and ask their parents about why they smoke cigarettes or why they cuss so much without understanding completely about WHY it’s bad, they just know it is.

It’s a surprising and strange intelligence we all notice, and with time, it’s easy to compare and see results between the less intelligent and more intelligent children.

We know that with time, we learn more about the world around us, and evolution helps us prove that not only do our physical bodies evolve, but our minds do with it.

Dear Life,

A blessing you have given me,

A curse you have challenged me,

But lessons have you woven in my quilt.

Memories leave me with guilt,

Smiles take away my enemies,

And time brings me many miles.

I try to understand everything you give me,

But something tells me to just enjoy the smiles.

You teach me that the possibilities are endless,

Change is the only thing that is constant,

And love is the only fuel that’s penniless.

Sincerely,

Yourself

Time

Time; it is a gift in which it is also our very own enemy.

Without you, there would be no him.

Without I, there would be no you.

Time has its way of making everything be, how it is.

Everyone has their own time, not everyone knows their time.

You came into my time, and influenced the way I would live my life.

But only a matter of time it would be, until you understood my time.

Until that time, I know that you are worth my time.

No matter how much time lies between,

I know now, that it is worth more to me, to have you involved in my time.

Than to never have you in my time.

Time spend together,

Time spent away,

Both as equally important.

When I think about you,

The words and actions that dictate what I say or do,

rely on the time that I have known you,

And you know that.

Your time is important to me.

The time we spend together,

helps me know you.

The time we spend away,

helps me miss you.

But these times,

our different.

Some times,

are sad.

And the only thing separating us,

was timing.

Maybe I’ll see you another time.

Writing is cheaper than therapy or drugs.

Sloppy Etymology

Sometimes you wish for something so hard and then it actually comes true. Has that happened to you? Against countless odds and still, your wish actually came true. Does it count as being lucky or should you be careful about hitching your hopes up too high? I’ve been thinking these thoughts for a while now. I’ve been thinking so much about it and I’ve also been trying not to think at all.

So much has happened since the last time I was here, blogger friends. So. Much. Where do I start from and how do I explain any of this? I am not sure. But I want to take it one step at a time. Keep my emotions in check. Make sure I’m not borrowing more happiness than I deserve to have in my share.

I can’t write like I used to. I’m putting that out there so you can…

Using Psychedelic Drugs as a Therapeutic Self-Evaluation

vQ1dKJC

I feel different.

The world is a waving, vibrating, more alive than it ever seemed before. The ceiling now consists of a liquid, stenciled ocean.

My world has changed into an unfamiliar yet so real lucid dream. How can this be? Why is there even such a thing that can allow humans to experience this Wonderland? Why do I want to keep going back? In this world, nothing else matters besides Love.

Everyone knows how to do it and it feels so right. This is why it changes people. This is why people are never the same again after they experience this world. We might be trippin’, but it’s a hell of an experience, and everyone should be able to experience it for themselves without judgement.

I feel so smart when I come back to reality. But what I’ve learned has always been a foggy, gray area after my mind has plunged into a state of psychedelic infatuation.

Wonderland is all I think about.

But what about reality? It’s hard to not want to go back to it.

Wonderland offers me escape. A beautiful, colorful, new land where I can learn and be someone new, leave all of my problems behind, an easy way out. But there’s no doubt that I question to myself…

Am I cheating my own mind? Why do I always want to take the easy way out? Leaving all my memorable years of living behind? All of the answers lie within somewhere deep.

“Everything isn’t always as it seems” they say.

Maybe everything is as it seems, and it’s just that simple.

There’s a reason why they call it TRIPPIN’. If “trippin” is short for “tripping” and tripping means to go away and come back, than psychedelics must obviously be a very conscious trip.

A trip to Wonderland.

What the most amazing thing about this trip to Wonderland does for me, is to help me realize, that if I am wanting to stay in Wonderland, and it’s always better than home.. There’s something in life that I need to reconsider..

I am not happy with the life that I have.

I am not as thankful as I say I am. I am not as “great” as I tell everyone I am when they ask. Maybe the media is to blame, or society, our parents, or our school teachers. But the possibilities of being alive, is that there are so many. That’s the amazing thing that we get to experience. Life gives us a chance to take all opportunity and make it real.

So in the end, there are no excuses. There are only opportunities.

And in this reality, my motivation is opportunity. And I am passionate about wanting to make my life great by surrounding myself with the people the I love, and the people that love me. I will achieve life-long satisfaction within myself by doing the things that make me feel the best; traveling, meeting new people, forgiving, learning, thanking, loving and making my life the wonderland It should be without the use of psychedelics.

And one day, I’ll learn that I have been in Wonderland, the entire time.

I feel different.
