I'm not reallly a "Poster".  So this will be hard for me.  (Yeah, Im a Noob but I hope to become something more).  But I've been reading these posts here and they are just wonderful!  This is NOT full of the negative, often misguided rantings of frustrated people thinking that their view is the best and only one.  Thank you so much for letting me In!

Nice! That's a wonderful statement and very accurate about Hippie and so many of the other older members ( I'm sure the younger ones too) . I was lucky enough to have some private interaction with Hippie and wife and learn a ton about many subjects here.
I was treated so nicely as a newb newb (love you Prism) I not only learned how to cultivate here I found out what it was to be able to give back as well. This has always been a safe and honest place held together by it's members. I still grow some "May nights" salvia plants in my garden due to Shadowlord, I believe,a researching it and still have cacti that have been through the ringer but still grow outdoors in my garden every year.
I say I when I speak of things here. I am still with my better half after 16 years and my name was made up back when I first was learning how to navigate the internet. It is really just me in here though he does really enjoy and participate in the gardening and taking care of the animals that we keep and all the things that go with it. we are kinda still homesteading and live in his childhood home which is oddly enough was just down the road from where I grew up. Life can be very good if you let it and help it along.

"Instead of dwelling on the difficulties to accomplish something, give your energy and attention to what needs to be done".

Thank you Zen~i saw this before i was "dislocated" and "IT" must seem like i make EXCUSES.

Though i have had-technical complications; and was using a computer from 2007

which i "felt" the "safety & security" to this site & those whom wish to remain anonymous would be in jeopardy. That is the truth~i cannot say more about IT.

My ANONYMITY is not important to me.

Anyone walking on this planet that has spoken OR observed me~KNOWS of my fascination & enthusiasm for FUNGI of

"all kinds">>>

"IT" is not limited to psycho-actives>>they are worshiped, though not above the hearts & souls of my fellow members.

My belief has always been that they should be given with LOVE.

And experienced with LOVE+ and RESULT in LOVE~

i have never sold one-as i want them for me & whom ever i can share with.

NOT that i have EVER had an "unlimited supply"~but it has been my beliefs OR teachings they ~

SHOULD NOT BE SOLD.

A very personal emotion.

I realize THAT is kinda "unrealistic"; AS it IS WHAT "SOCIETY" has dictated.

Folks here have been very generous to me in my time of NEED & had never been turned away~

Guess i am too old to change to accommodate Society~ in it's current state.

Or the IMAGINARY SOCIETY i have created in my own heart & head.

THIS IS AS CLOSE TO the PLACE in my being~in heart as i can get to+

As "am" ever gonna get AND i am eternally grateful; and always "feel" as if i have a bit of NIRVANA or Utopia by being here.

So very "aptly NAMED". Sound too "mushy"? i even like that word+

There is nothing that i can say to dedicate my loyalty & appreciation.

This is not for "any type-sort of" accolades as i realize i am NOT the only one that

FEELS THIS WAY.

OR does it seem quite literally~just a bunch of bullshit. Am not good at that either.

And ONLY one of many to appreciate the ENERGY & LOVE IT TAKES~ that goes into this SITE.

SO I THANK YOU~ALL ~THE MODERATORS; OUR TEACHERS the MEMBERS>>

That gives me this sense of being a "minute particle" in this Miracle of Mycotopia~+~

The statement and honor felt about loyalty & interest in others' feelings are very important to me.

That is subjective & only you will/can determine my "sincerity">>>HOPEFULLY you will<<<

Am only regena~just a "spore" in the grand scheme~

[i think somehow i got my paragraphs EFFED UP.]

GOING OUT THE SAME WAY i came in~sorry for the redundancy-but cannot go back & read OR i just won't say anything.

Many are probably wishing i didn't~understood~on a roll~but it's all the Truth~

"Instead of dwelling on the difficulties to accomplish something, give your energy and attention to what needs to be done".

Was gonna DELETE this IF i really knew how to for being too sentimental.

And yes, IT --my long but simple adoration of this SITE.

i truly have "felt it to be an honor to be here" though.

So i am gonna leave it-being a "sentimental fool" OR just a fool. But a grateful one.

THANK YOU to every one that posts guides, TEKs, how to's and their documentation of grows on this site. I recently got a wild hair to grow poppy plants in the house to admire their neatness and beauty! Obviously I had no experience and no clue where to even begin... about 20 hours of reading through this forum, in and out over the last couple days I feel I'm ready to take on this project!

Something we have been working on for some time is a way to properly articulate the commitment we have for all of you. As curators of one man's legacy we are bound to serve it to the best of our abilities, and to demonstrate through our actions the ways in which we care and show compassion for other human beings. 

 

We decided to set out on a journey into the deepest depths of history of our community, to writings and teachings of Hippie3 that pre-date Mycotopia, and to find a set of guiding principals that we collectively felt resonated with everything this place has stood for over the years. Our take on the Hippie3-isms that helped create and define what Mycotopia means.

 

Every staff member, new and old, has and must agree to this Declaration of Contribution. It's a simple matter of putting into the world what we want to get out of it. We are here to serve the community, to serve you, and to ensure the continuation of an idea to spread knowledge and peace to all.

 

We invite you to join us on this journey of discovery and pledge to do your best to move the community forward in a positive direction. To be contributors to our legacy. To promote knowledge and compassion to all.

 

Please feel free to comment and let us know what you think. Everything is fluid as we actively create our future.

 

~namaste

:meditate:

 

 

 

So how do we want the world to look?

 

Declaration of Contribution

I will make good things happen for other people

For those here now and those who come after us

 

I will be resourceful and responsible

 

 

Love People

I Will Contribute

Be a part of the solution. Do your work the way you wish everyone else would do their work for you.

 

I Will Be Kind

Have concern and respect for others. To be on the receiving end of kindness is refreshing.

 

I Will Be Patient

Give others the time you'd like to be given. 

 

I Will Be Honest

Have truthful conversations.

 

I Will Encourage People

Give confidence and support freely.

 

I Will Apologize & Forgive

Say you're sorry & accept I'm sorry.

 

I Will Thank People

Enjoy the work of others, show your gratitude.

 

 

Remember

Excuses Distract

Embrace your challenges. Instead of dwelling on the difficulties to accomplish something, give your energy and attention to what needs to be done. Stay with how you can ... rather than indulging in why you can't.

 

Drama Drains

Choose truth. Hold back on adding unnecessary emotion to a situation. Avoid exaggerating the positive or negative of anything or anyone. Be thoughtful, optimistic, and encouraging.

 

Complaints Bore

Create solutions. Shake off useless thoughts and statements of entitlement and resignation. Need to vent? Do it privately. Be results-focused. Inspire personal responsibility.

 

 

Demonstrate Leadership

I will care about the people I work with

I will involve them the way I'd like to be involved

I will treat them the way I'd like to be treated

This is a truly amazing site. Its is a great place to learn and get the scoop on mycology. I have not really posted much yet but I have been using Mycotopia as an info source for a couple months. The result is very positive, and I am looking forward to being part of the community.

Oooohhh,

 

The post thing is at the bottom of the page haha! I have been using the quote box as a method of posting. Oops, well I got it now so that's the main thing right.

 

Yeah the Declaration is amazing in my opinion. From reading the Declaration I find, and this is only my opinion, it is relaying a code of positivity of sorts. I love it.

 

When 2 or more humans combine positive attitudes, thoughts, and actions they will prevail in the midst of darkness. 

 

It is great to be here!

My 1st post..(warning! i often drift and digress)

After browsing several sites I chose this one because of your organic feel, the strong sense of kindness emanating from every post, and who can argue with this freaking declaration, right?  My wife and I began a trans-formative paradigm shift type of journey a couple of years ago, attempting to search for truth, for answers, sometimes for the right questions, and most importantly, the right people.  In short, his site feels like our kind of people.  The forums are all encompassing; from spirituality, mysticism, micro-dosing for therapeutic and rehabilitative purposes, (which I believe will help facilitate a much needed shift in our global consciousness).. Super excited to have found you guys..

 

With humble gratitude I want to thank the people who organize/contribute knowledge on this site, its a great and noble thing that you are doing, thank you.
