0.5 g oral Mushrooms
  1 - 1.5 g smoked Cannabis
I decided to try mushrooms out once before the new year... I had already smoked a bowl of good weed beforehand I took a half-gram of the mushrooms out of a baggie... the stems are powdered blue with golden-tan caps.

The mushrooms went in my mouth easily... At first, they tasted like regular mushrooms that you put on pizza or in sauces... and then they went very sour. It was alright though, I managed I didn't know what to expect to pass the time, I went in my backyard and lit up a joint. The joint was done. I roached it and threw it in the bowl, already half-packed with weed. The bowl was done. I went inside. I sat infront of my computer. I felt strangely warm. I could tell my face was extremely red; sometimes weed does that to me though. About 45minutes had gone by since I had munched the shrooms... Suddenly I was hit with this feeling I described it as follows:

"Right now I feel so free of thought. Cut loose of wires connecting me to things I don't wish to focus on. I feel awake, alive and refreshed. I wonder if I will remember them. Things are fading in my mind. Perhaps I should write them now before I won't be able to descramble.
Things are fading in my mind. Perhaps I should write them now before I won't be able to descramble.
Extreme euphoria. Unbelievably focused on whatever I wish to. If I wish to focus on my sense of vision I can cause things to occur... or things occur due to my focusing. I'm not sure, one of the two. (I don't remember what I meant...) I feel as if this is the first time my mind has ever been able to function and then again it comes and goes. I can turn it off and on you know; it's a switch; a lightswitch; I can let it flow."

An explanation is required... I felt as if I could control the shrooms' effect on me. I recall walking around my house, not really going anywhere... just walking around. Things I saw were coming at me in a two-dimensional flat plane. (most likely caused by the marijuana) My computer screen's colours became more apparent and it started to weave in and out to my breathing, but only if I let it. Later on, I smoked another joint right after it was done, I came inside and felt as if I didn't get high at all... I felt as if my mind would go through waves of being extremely focused and then totally losing whatever I was focused on... I could focus on any one of my senses, but the only sense that really mattered was thought... all other senses were useless and selfish. I know thought isn't one of the primary senses, but I believe it to be a sense; as the brain is a bundled mass of nerves. My mind was travelling at such a fast pace, with everything making sense... but I couldn't write it down clearly enough to have it make sense to anyone but me at the time... It lasted about 2 hours.

'What perfection is for me is my mind in this instant
not cluttered
not chaotic
not drifting
not closed
stuck on whatever path I want it to be.'
Your mind is a vinyl record
The folds in the vinyl are the folds on your brain
The reader on the player is your ability to focus; You can pick it up and place it wherever you want.
The static produced is your ego; the sound produced is your self.
At that instant in time, my mind was playing a harmonious tune, free of static.
It was beautiful.

I hope to one day reach levels of understanding and conscious expansion by use of meditation, without aid of pscychedaelic drugs.

All in all it was a great experience and I can't wait until New Years when I will be ingesting about a gram of these mind-bending mushrooms.
