Tripping.

Hey,

.

Greetings once more, on a very cold morning.

.

I was told by a cheerful soul yesterday that we can expect to have a return to the freezing cold, snowy weather again today.

I did not want to believe it, but last night it suddenly became dreadfully chilly, so we may indeed be unlucky.

Oh dear!

.

I have been watching an amazing piece of old film about early testing using LSD, which is a powerful hallucinogenic man-made drug.

.

At the time the researchers were trying to work out it’s possibilities in the treatment of various conditions.

.

The volunteer subject shown in the film applied to be tested when she was told by the husband that the university was looking for normal people to be studied after imbibing a drink containing a dose of Lysergic Acid, otherwise known as LSD.

.

Before doing this, she has of course been psychologically tested to ensure that she is a stable and secure personality.

.

She is filmed drinking her dosage and then the video is made three hours later.

By then she is tripping and fully opened to the experience, luckily for her she is having a good trip.

.

It is fascinating to see the wonder on her face as she sees the colours in the room and the way they pass through her body.

She says she is not ‘her’ anymore because she is a part of everything.

When she is asked to describe what she sees she says she could only do that if she could talk in technicolour.

She feels at one with everything and says she feels sorry for the interviewer if he cannot experience the things she can.

.

Her description is that it is like removing the veil and seeing things as they truly are and always have been.

Like many people she finds the whole experience to be deeply spiritual.

.

On the other hand there are apparently people who are so sensitive that they take only one trip and then suffer flashbacks for the rest of their lives.

Bad trips are said to be terrifying when they occur.

.

Of course, historically, people such as Shamans use such drugs to travel to a spiritual realm.

They however are trained and developed spiritually, performing the whole thing within ritual, having learned from those who have walked that path before them.

.

It is however, quite fascinating to watch.
.

.
Many people dedicated themselves to passing on the message once they had experienced an altered state of reality.

.

The sixties really were an amazing time in many many ways.
