The Truth of Oneness

January 25, 2020

One of the more interesting things I have been shown over and over. Is that we are all here to be the most authentic us as we can be.

The interesting part is this is how we are able to enter the oneness consciousness and overcome duality?

Duality is a part and it’s the counterpart, Black and White, Good and Bad, Right and Wrong. We create that when we believe one size fits all because there is one way and it’s counter. By being our individual selves we can find our individual counter or shadow and come into balance with it.

Fully representing who and what we are, as a defined functional part that fits into the whole to create something bigger, something greater.

Around the whole concept that everything happens in divine order, that would include the extreme division that is happening all over right now is also in divine order.

This division is taking place in every way. From the wealth gap to polarized politics to the racial divides going on, to the believers to non-believers, even the truth seekers, and the ones that speak words with nothing to back it up but their own noise.

What if my realization about us needing to own our uniqueness, our individuality to become one goes for everything. What if everything has to go to its truest form even if that creates a total polarization?

Creating absolute extremes so we are so divided we can own our individuality even on a societal whole so we can come together from that point.

By finding true absolute acceptance for ourselves we create a space of complete acceptance for everyone and everything around us. As equals in a way we have never seen or experienced before. May this be the final stages of our awakening? Awakening fully to ourselves in such a way that we create a space to allow other to come to the same understanding.

Microdosing Psilocybin Mushrooms with the Stamets Stack

Kyle Dow · November 19th, 2019 

Imagine yourself in the body of an ancient ancestor, Homo Erectus, a species of archaic humans that lived millions of years ago. Your primitive drives are predicated on survival and genetic flourishing. The canopy of your natural habitat is deteriorating, forcing you to emerge out into the savannah. As you walk across the grassy fields tracking footprints and scat, you see an unfamiliar fruit body growing from the earth. Hungry and curious, you eat the mushroom. 

Soon enough, you’re catapulted into a different consciousness, subject to massive inputs of data. Various parts of your brain interact like never before, distorting your visual field in a way that both terrifies and inspires. Beyond your conscious capacity, neurogenesis begins to initiate, helping you develop a new way of thinking and acting as a catalyst for human evolution.

The Stoned Ape Theory

Paul Stamets is one of the most reputable, decorated, and self-practiced mycologists in the world. He has dedicated his life, energy, and enthusiasm to the study of fungi and is the owner of a gourmet and medicinal mushroom distributor, Fungi Perfecti. Paul has also written six books on mushrooms and starred in a recently released documentary on the amazing benefits of mushrooms, Fantastic Fungi.

Paul’s most recent patent application is for a nootropic stack (a combination of cognitive enhancers) that contains psilocybin, lion's mane, and niacin. He would like to see this supplement available as a vitamin, claiming that its efficacy in epigenetic neurogenesis has the potential to initiate “the next quantum leap in human consciousness.”

When speaking about human evolution, Stamets often discusses the Stoned Ape Theory. Initially proposed by Dennis and Terence McKenna, it is considered one of the first hypotheses to explain the homo sapiens “quantum leap in human consciousness.” The McKenna’s created this narrative to explain the rapid doubling in size of the human brain, which occurred in as little as 200,000 years.

The brothers proposed that in small doses, the psychedelic compound increased visual acuity, making the consumer a better hunter, resulting in an increased food supply and a higher rate of reproduction. Larger doses led to greater arousal and bonding, diversifying the gene pool.

Perhaps this notion is more digestible if one has experienced the profound and expansive states of being from entheogenic substances. Even for the unpracticed psychonaut, one might consider the likelihood of psilocybin catalyzing the evolution of language, strategic thinking, imagination, and the emergence of the arts.

Stamets is a proponent of the Stoned Ape Theory but prefers to call it a hypothesis, indicating it has strong supporting evidence, but no conclusive science to back it. Stamets believes that psilocybin will continue to help humans evolve, raising the level of global consciousness.

Regular, intentional use of this plant medicine is restricted by its categorization as a Schedule 1 drug by the DEA, suggesting that it has “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” Yet, from clinical research, we know that psilocybin is non-addictive and useful for treating an array of clinical conditions. Paul also speaks to the medicinal benefits of the substance, crediting the plant medicine with curing his chronic stutter in an exceptional experience.

The Evidence

Stamets refers to multiple research studies that show how psilocybin creates an extension of the fear response, creating new neurological pathways when faced with threatening situations. For some, these situations often occur as anxiety interferes with social interactions and the ability to cope with the demands of life. Not only does psilocybin promote courage, but it enhances empathy, two characteristics of quality leaders. In more intentional, clinical applications, the extension of the fear response has proven effective in helping people with PTSD.

Stamets’s primary attraction to combining psilocybin and lion’s mane is for its duel capacity to both create new neurons and neural pathways, and also to repair existing neurological damage.

Stamets refers to two mice studies where the scientists intentionally damaged the brains of the mice through the introduction of a neurotoxin. The scientists observed the mice’s behavior and noted that they exhibited dementia-like symptoms. Upon introducing lion’s mane, the effects of the neurotoxin reversed.

“The reduction of beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of mushroom-fed mice vs. the mice not fed any mushrooms was remarkable. The formation of amyloid plaques is what many researchers believe is a primary morphological biomarker associated with Alzheimer’s. Plaques linked to beta-amyloid peptide inflame brain tissue, interfere with healthy neuron transmission, and are indicated in nerve degeneration.”

Lion’s mane and psilocybin have a complementary relationship that optimizes returns. Niacin is in the stack for deliverability. Stamets reports that the majority of neurogenesis occurs in the extremities; since niacin works as a flushing agent and carries GABA across the blood-brain barrier, it helps with the distribution of the mushroom molecules. From the combination of these three substances, Stamets hypothesizes the benefits of this nootropic stack:

“This unique combination of compounds can be incorporated into other therapies with such combinations providing unique advantages for medically significant advancements in repairing neurons, removing amyloid plaques, improving mental health, cognition, agility, and improving overall the ecology of consciousness.”

Stamets provides quite a bit of variance in the recommended dose, so it might take some experimentation for what is appropriate for you. Generally, larger people require a larger dose. However, it is best to start with a lower dose and increase the amount bit by bit. Niacin has an uncomfortable effect as it leads to vasodilation and flushing of the skin.

The Microdosing Protocol

Stamets suggests a dosing protocol of five days on, two days off, so one does not build up a tolerance. A traditional mushroom microdosing protocol is one day on, 2-3 days off. Again, some experimentation might be required to figure out what works best for you. General thoughts on vitamins and supplements are that you should cycle them periodically rather than follow the protocol indefinitely.

Psilocybin = 1-10mg

Lion’s Mane = 50 – 200 mg

Niacin = 100 – 200 mg

The Future

Humans have more common ancestry with fungi than any other kingdom; humans came from fungi and they are our elders. Mushrooms can kill us, feed us, send us on a spiritual journey, and they can heal us. At the microdose level, psilocybin does not have a noticeable effect. Instead, it has the potential to reduce anxiety, reduce irritability, increase cognitive function and creativity, increase sociability, provide a greater overall sense of wellbeing, and reduce the effects of aging.

This combination of psilocybin, lions mane, and niacin has the potential to course correct the direction of humanity by promoting self-awareness, health, well being, and recognition of the interconnectedness of all life.

 Faith is what gets me through, and the more I practice it, it makes me wonder if I or anyone really understand the concept?

For me, it is trusting in the process, knowing the end goal, and making the best decision in the moment to get there. But not making them with my head, making them from a deeper place that knows more than me.

Let me tell you half the time, sometimes all the time it seems like I'm doing things that make absolutely no sense. That is because I am following a much high voice, that is faith and the fact it really disturbed a lot of people is even more interesting.

It can really stir people up not having an explanation for what I am doing half the time because my life is based on this blind faith that comes from a very deep understanding and profound trust in the universe. I mean isn't that what real faith is blind?

I'm visiting a buddy and after a mind-melting weekend that just unfolded, we were talking. I was saying all I knew was I needed to be here now? Despite nothing going right to get me there to the point, it wasn't even rational for me to go at times, but I knew I had to go.

The agreement I made was if spirit would be there when called I would always do the same. If I expect spirit to be there for me no question asked I have to be willing to do the same. I knew how limited I am in this body so I turned it all over, no questions asked, to something higher than my ego. That is the agreement I made when I turned my will and your life over. That is faith.

Spirits say do and I follow, I am never disappointed things happen beyond my wildest dreams, I'm always pleasantly rewarded.

Experts have developed dozens of forms of meditation. The variety suggests there is a form of meditation to suit most people, regardless of personality or lifestyle.

The practice offers a chance to improve physical wellbeing, as well as emotional health. However, there is no “right way” to meditate, meaning people can explore the different types until they find one that works for them.

1. Metta meditation. Its goal is to cultivate an attitude of love and kindness toward everything. While breathing deeply, practitioners open their minds to receiving loving-kindness. They then send messages of loving-kindness to the world, to specific people, or to their loved ones.

2. Body scan or Progressive relaxation, sometimes called body scan meditation, is meditation that encourages people to scan their bodies for areas of tension. The goal is to notice tension and to allow it to release. Some forms of progressive relaxation require people to tense and then relax muscles. Others encourage a person to visualize a wave, drifting over their body to release tension.

3. Mindfulness meditation encourages awareness of a person’s existing surroundings. So, rather than reflecting on the past or future, a practitioner will simply note the wait without judgment. This is something people can do almost anywhere. While waiting in line at the grocery store, for example, a person might calmly notice their surroundings, including the sights, sounds, and smells they experience.

4. Breath awareness meditation, Practitioners breathe slowly and deeply, counting their breaths or otherwise focusing on their breaths. The goal is to focus only on breathing and to ignore other thoughts that enter the mind.

5. Kundalini yoga is a physically active form of meditation that blends movements with deep breathing and mantras. People usually learn from a teacher or do a class or you can learn the poses and mantras at home.

6. Zen meditation is a form of meditation that can be part of Buddhist practice. Many Zen practitioners study under a teacher because this kind of meditation involves specific steps and postures. This form of meditation is similar to mindfulness meditation but requires more discipline and practice. People may prefer it if they are seeking both relaxation and a new spiritual path.

7. Transcendental Meditation is a spiritual form of meditation where practitioners remain seated and breathe slowly. The goal is to transcend or rise above the person’s current state of being. During the session, practitioners focus on a mantra or a repeated a word or series of words. A teacher determines the mantra based on a complex set of factors, sometimes including the year the practitioner was born, and the year the teacher was trained.

Meditation is a process-oriented undertaking that focuses on the moment, not on the results.

So enjoying the moment is key to successful meditation.

An individual should not judge whether the meditation session is good or bad, right or wrong. Instead, they should simply remain in that moment.

Meditation is a skill that takes time to master. Some people feel frustrated and even angry when they first attempt to meditate.

Remaining present in the current moment can be challenging, as can focusing on a single mantra without getting distracted.

Whatever their immediate reaction, a person should persist with their mediation practice. The Key is to accept the thoughts that appear without judgment or anger. Some novices may benefit from enrolling in a class or having the support of a teacher.
