Earlier this morning, after an awesome night of pot and Phish, I decided to go into the woods with my friend to smoke some Salvia. We constructed a makeshift bong out of a water bottle and a small chillum, and set off.
I led my friend to a place where there are extremely old, tall trees, so amazing that you could just tell that they were ancient and wise. I sat up against the tree with my friend, loaded the bong with some 10x, and took a huge rip... I laid back against the tree, looking up... I began to see an outline of my body in the branches against the sky, I was moving, being seperated from the tree, and then I felt it, the tree rejected me. The shapes in the branches moved downwards, and I had a strong feeling like the tree was angry at me. I may have misinterpreted it, but either way, I was scared.
I slowly started coming down, feeling very strange. I, still in a slightly dreamy state, gave the bong to my friend, who loaded it again and proceeded to take a hit. As he was leaving, I told him to 'get close to the tree, and embrace it'. He must have spilled some water on himself when I wasn't looking, because he thought he peed on himself. He told me that he thought he had an accident, and I looked at him and laughed. 'You fucking PEED on yourself, man!', we laughed and laughed for about 3 minutes, and then he got worried. He started saying that he needed someone to come and pick him up, because he wet himself. I laughed and told him he was delusional...
After he came down completely, we decided to find a different spot, assuming that the old tree was, for one reason or another, angered by our presence. We found a different spot, and we sat down on a large log. Again, we loaded the bong, and, since it was my turn, I took the next hit. I counted how long I was holding it in... 'one... two... three... four... five... shicsh... seh... seh... hehe...' Amazing! I looked around, and felt the presence of a million different life forms all around me! There was a tree, seemingly male, mixing the ground around like a spoon in a pot of soup. A gentler, more female tree seemed to educate the male tree of my presence. The both stopped, looking at me, and I felt an overwhelming sensation of acceptance, for these trees were young and friendly. Everything was alive! I closed my eyes, filled with happiness, as I again began to come down. I looked at my friend, and just smiled. He seemed to understand.
We loaded up the bong for the last time, and my friend took a large hit. He held it in, closing his eyes, keeping the bong in his hands. His effects seemed to come on soon, and there was still smoke left in the bong. I didn't want it to go to waste, so I told him to finish it off. He just looked at me in a confused way, put his mouth up to the opening, and started to drink the bong water! I said 'What the fuck are you doing? You're drinking the dirty bong water!', and he just stared at me, clueless, laughing, while water ran down his cheeks... he suddenly got up, got close to the ground, and started running off. I chased after him, trying to tell him that he was going the wrong way, and then he just stopped. He turned his head around, and shot at me the hugest grin I'd ever seen. I grabbed his hand and we walked back to where we were before.
My friend laid back down, enjoying the comedown, while I looked up at the sky. My eyesight was directed towards the top of a tree, and for a moment, it seemed to smile at me. I felt it talk to me, saying something like 'Now you've seen it. Most people don't get to see us in this way, but you have. Is it what you expected?'
