I wonder who else after a good trip notices that the world changes in drastic ways, especially socially speaking.
Perhaps it is just a delusion on my part. Haha. But, I don't think so.
It isn't even so much that my interactions with people become more fluent. I can remain quiet and not interact with people and still notice that everyone around me is acting differently, more happily and more deeply expressive.
This, for me, as well as other things (and the fact of the trip itself) reinforces that things are strange. The trip teaches me that the world isn't real... these changes are consistent with the world becoming happier... because actually I do want the world around me to be happier. It is as though in the trip I deconstruct reality then reconstruct it again when things come back into place, they are a bit happier, a bit more the way I feel they should be.
Anyone else understand this? (I know some do, I'd like to hear your opinions and experiences! :) )
In particular, it makes me want to trip more and more intensely. Haha. I remember in South America an Ayahuasca shaman-sort of woman told me that merely thinking lovingly-kind thoughts helped people. I actually believe that too. Perception is strange. I remember always feeling that my family was doing terribly, then I started doing loving-kindness meditation and started to see that they we're doing better.
In any event, the mind is complex. Perhaps reality is like what is described in some schools of Yogacara Buddhism. The world is complex enough to admit the existence of other beings in relation to one another while at the same time one perceives a true hell, while another perceives a true heaven... all functioning perfectly well. And I suppose there is a way to manipulate from where your mind sees...
My mushroom use has verified it in small ways. As well as verified it directly via being given knowledge... but, I trust direct changes more than knowledge imparted at the peak of a trip.
