Society can teach prejudice. Don't think so? Watch The Brown Eyes - Blue Eyes Racism experiment.
How do we make people not so suggestible to make stupid assumption or prone to follow orders? We encourage and teach our children critical thinking. -Precisely what the education system is not doing today.

"Shamans" being afraid of plant spirits and gifts from Mother Earth

Fear

I'm reading posts made by scared colleagues about Entheogens on Facebook. And realizing how many "shamanicly inclined" people it's out there which are so very scared of what they don't understand.

(Firstly I want to point out that in this post I am strictly talking about the religious use of Entheogens practiced by experienced Shamans. Do not confuse this topic with something else or generalize.)

Being in harmony with nature

Christal Quintasket

"...everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence."

- Christal Quintasket

This meaning I believe is the natural state in the cosmos. Everything has its balance. While human beings can not always understand how the balance works, nevertheless it's there.

Asking Scary Questions

You didn't choose to be born. You just suddenly experienced being here. You must have wondered why.

Your existence is in alignment with the sole purpose of being. Every lifeform is a divine sparkle engaged in a cosmic orgasmic dance with everything always co-celebrating existence in their own way. Not separated from each other, other than in appearances and the assumed gap in between us. To exist is just meaningless when you feel separated from everything.

The World from Afar

Believing in yourself is one thing, believing in the world is crazy.

Turn your minds eye towards Earth.

Seen from afar the ant farm that is planet earth must be a wonderful sight to see. Vast forests, great mountains and deep blue oceans. Great buildings and structures. Landmarks from way back when, showing our collective history as a species.

SetiAmazing would not be a strong enough word.

But in the midst of all this splendor are other ..things. Not so beautiful but rather ugly. A shadow side of humanity.
