If Michael Pollan can publish a book like this, and get yuge publicity, given his platform, then anything, literally anything, is possible. This trumps even Trump’s Summit. Why am I just now getting wind of it?
In the past month there have been gobs of video interviews with Pollan. Here’s one of them:
Way back in 1969, I was introduced to LSD, and it literally blew my thoroughly indoctrinated mind wide open. From then on, I was no longer cemented into the world-view of Roman Catholicism, or even of western epistemology. From then on, I knew that “reality” morphed into whatever “I” choose to focus on, that the sky is wide open, and that “I” am one with the sky.
(Oh wow, just went to grab the cover of Pollan’s book and noticed the image on it. Brilliant. And exactly my experience on LSD: beyond the wall, the open sky.)
Yes, I date my own transformation to my first LSD trip, and my second one. There was no third. No need for one, though I have taken other psychedelics, including mushrooms, psilocibin, and mescaline over the years. None recently. Again, not needed. Once we are open to the universe, it’s hard to close the doors.
So now I would amend my former advice to Donald Trump. Now I say: Don’t just take off your shoes and walk barefoot in the forest, DO IT WHILE ON MAGIC MUSHROOMS. (Note: I’ve corrected this to magic mushrooms from LSD, see Laura Bruno comments.) You’re a fast learner. You will fall in love with Nature, and won’t need to do psychedelics again. And your famous Mars-on-the-karmic-29°-Leo-Ascendant-with-Royal-Regulus EGO will get even more laser-like in focusing what it wants to see happen without your essence getting at all identified with it. As Thich Nhat Hanh has been saying, for years:
It’s either that, or Jon Rappoport is right, Trump’s uber-capitalist world-view, now visioning gigantic hotels on North Korean beaches, will accelerate the destruction of this planet to warp speed.
