Mushrooms have always been a topic of conversation but until about a few months ago they were always out of reach. Friday came along after a long week and my friend (named C) was talking about him going out after class to smoke. I asked if I could come along. He said sure. After class had ended we made our way to a friend's house (named D). Once there we socialized with a few friends for a while and smoked a blunt. Shortly there after 'C' turns to me and asked if I was interested in buying shrooms. I said 'Yeah.' I took out my money and he handed me the zip. As I inspected the shrooms which looked quite like a cocoa color I couldn't help thinking of the power mushrooms posses. Sitting there looking at the bag I felt a power or aura being let off the shrooms causing my stomach and brain to breathe in awe. Then 4 other people showed up. Altogether there were about 9 of us total. 4 of us bought shrooms. But only two of us took a full eighth. 'C' and I both ate a whole eighth. I already had experience with mushrooms so I knew I could handle the trip.
We all moved over to the backyard and smoked a few bowls while we ate our morsels from nature (by this time it was 8pm). They didn't taste as bad as ones I've had before. To be honest I thought I had been ripped off. They could be duds. After about 30 minutes had passed I began to have visuals. The sky was glowing with so many shades of pumpkin orange, cherry red, and coconut brown colors that I was feeling as though the over-growing city and growing-number of cars had caused the color of the sky to change. I put head down and thought about how I should be enjoying my trip. I turned to my side to talk to a guy I didn't know but was 'C''s friend. We chatted but could never get passed the first sentence. I felt helpless. His voiced strangled my thoughts. I couldn't understand why. I was shocked.
Thoughts were racing but I kept on stuttering. I followed by saying 'I, I, what was I about to say? Then as the trip progressed and I walked farther down this mindpath. I stood looking at everyone shrooming. They were all congregating in one area. I stood and only heard them laughing and talking about money. I began to laugh. They were hilarious. Then I said, 'you know what you guys' problem is? Ya'll greedy' But in an instant it hit me. My lips weren't moving. But how could this be I could hear my voice. I shouted again while touching my lips. Again they didn't move. I was amazed and happy to know that I could speak to others with my mind. I couldn't help talking to them with my mind. But I felt they couldn't talk back. As if they hadn't unlocked that part of their mind. I caught myself thinking that I was chosen. That I was part of a movement. A movement that involved new people. That I am a part of something that is great. That I was chosen to lead the way to good, peace, pacifism, and love. That we are all one working toward a common goal, peace.

Hocking up a loogi was what I found myself doing next. When some one begins to say that what I am doing is disgusting. I became a bit angry but then became ashamed. I didn't want for anyone to think that way about anyone. I laid down and rested. Then after what must have been 15 minutes I felt snot coming out of my nose. I didn't want the person from earlier to know so I thought about what I should do but at the same time avoid him so that he would not know. So I began to think. I tried breathing different ways. Finally, as I thought, my mind clicked and I came to the conclusion that the body knew what it was doing. All I had to do if I felt discomfort or if I had a problem was to breathe. I did just that.
Suddenly I found myself asking myself questions about life. Without realizing it a voice had been there along with my own helping me along asking questions. Then I felt my mind ask me if I wanted to see what was beyond, what was there. I said 'yes, yes' and then I felt myself looking down at a red and a blue pill. I thought about the matrix the movie. Then I held for something I knew was coming. But I didn't take hold of anything. Like I was just standing. I was completely relaxed but excited. The mind showed me things I can't talk about. These things are accessible to all, I just have to work things out with my mind. The mind is the key.
