LSD and the other psychedelics are not party drugs and were used by the old school freaks in the Haight and other places to experience and nurture the cosmic consciousness of eastern transcendent states that was the hallmark of Hippie. I have evolved beyond this recently by fructifying a tantric Sadhana through awakening the Kundalini. But, I know alot of you will still trip, so I hope my two cents here will assist someone. All I put here is based on my own "acid trip to the divine" perfecting lessons. 1. To trip to experience God as your own realty of self is the real hippie trip, and the purpose of using psychedelics. So if you can muster the motivation to do them for this reason, you will never regret it if you're successful. 2.In order to facillitate the success in this, a few things need to be considered as pre-requisites. 3.You need a substantial dose, which judging from the good blotter of today if you can get some, is around four to five hits. In order to affect your cakras so that your ego gets overun at least a little. you have to take enough. 4. You want to be out in the country by a lake or farm, with some moon and very little electronic stimulation. Let the acid do the work in the natural stillness of the rural night. Have one or two good friends with you doing the same thing with the same mind set. 5. No other drugs should be used, except maybe weed when you are ready to crash. Other drugs pollute the spiritual releasing properties of the acid. 6. Think and discuss God as your trip, but don't talk too much. Be cool and not too silly. 7. Shiva wants to experience through us, as us. let him through and you just might get a taste of Lord Brahma, as I once did. Trust me brothers and sisters, YOU WILL DIG IT!!!!
