"In ancient Egypt it was believed that the soul, through successive lifetimes of evolving, was headed back to the Stars. In Greece toward the real platonic ideas. In the east to Samahdi or Nirvana. To the Christians heaven. To the Persians the light. It’s likely that many of them were quaffing mushroom beverages in old temples under the stars. It’s likely that many of them were burnt out with the "mundane" world and longed for the "truth beyond the appearances of the world." It’s likely that many of these psychedelic religions burnt out because they, like anything else, had faults and led nowhere.
To me, it’s not about truth. All that longing is music. To me, it’s not about moral righteousness. All that morality is music. To me it’s not about love. All that talk about love is like a sweet music. To me it’s not about good and evil. To me all that good and evil are two drums in the night. To me the cosmos is infinite. To me, life has no opposite. To me, there is no beginning or ending because beginnings and endings are infinite. And I don’t have to sell these things, get passionate about them, because if I stop and listen I can hear them playing through the days, like music. It’s not that music is better than any of these things, it’s that music is musical.
Whether we believe in spirits or not, life shows them to us eventually, psychedelic or not. Whether we believe in God or not, life shows us God, psychedelic or not. Whether we believe in nothingness, no truth, no significance, no god, psychedelic or not, life will show these things to us. Through the act of living, infinitely, we see and feel everything eventually.
I’m aware of the risks of psychedelic spirituality; they are the same risks of most religions. What would happen if the moralizing of psychedelic revelations decreased and more artwork was made? What would happen if we talked more of the music of Neptune and less of Neptune’s “ultimate reality?” Could it be that by objectifying our own passion for psychedelic spirituality, just a little more than we might like, we’ll be hearing it clearly for the first time? These thoughts…they’re my music. If there’s one thing psychedelics have taught me…”
