"If you teach someone to meditate or to do yoga or to go on pilgrimage to some holy mountain, nothing is guaranteed to happen.  Yet if you are given 5 dried grams of magic mushrooms or DMT or some other potent psychedelic, whoever you are, a freight train of significance is going to be coming your way in a matter of moments."    Sam Harris

“Your assumptions are your window on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”  Isaac Asimov

Recent psychedelic research: an introduction

 

                   "The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder."    Ralph Sockman

                      "It's important to keep an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out."

Going back for a university reunion: self-esteem, hallucinogens, wonder & the transpersonal (4th post)

"Who will prefer the jingle of jade pendants if he once has heard stone growing in a cliff?"  Lao Tzu

"To stand and stare, to watch the rising sun, fills me with such calm happiness, I am sure I have
dwindled away too much time on inessentials." 
Diana Gault (when dying of cancer)
