I hear some claim to have experienced true reality from taking LSD. A glimpse into higher states of consciousness that reveal unity in all of creation. I only experienced extreme frieght, and wished like hell I had never taken the stuff, but others tell a different sory. Whats your story.
prior to becoming a Christian and adopting the Christ as my model, i had on not a few occasions taken copious amounts of LSD with varying degrees of success. there were times when i just giggled and giggled and had rather amazing hallucinations due to the heightened awareness that it gives. mostly our environment suggests things to our mind, and the LSD somehow takes those suggestions and makes them real, and we are blown away by them.
other times i have taken it i was in full control of my faculties, in fact i would say that because it made me self conscious, i was in more control, i was able to ride my bike, have a meaningful conversation with my friends, even a deep conversation.
once we bought a whole batch of them and we tried one or two, and nothing happened and we thought that they were fake, so we gobbled three or four, turned out they were real, watched Pink Floyd live in Pompeii, that was unforgettable.
what i would say, is that while it changed my perception at the time, it has contributed nothing to my spirituality and i would strongly advise against its use as a spiritual medium, or even a recreational one. It is not like smoking pot, nor like taking cocaine, it opens the receptors of the mind to all sorts of influences, and who can fathom the dictates of the mind?
