Stop Seeking Visions, Meaning, and Purpose
Message From A Bhang Sadhu (The Stoned Ape)
Many different people from different states, and social media forums seek Shamanic Healing of Soma, and Bhang medicine from me. They are always seeking or looking for a vision. They see these videos about psychedelics on Youtube and they hear about these experiences from others so they travel around looking for visions, hallucinations, meaning, purpose, and their minds are constantly chattering inside about that search. Their greed leads them. They are nothing more than a product of greed at this point.
These plants give us a vibrantly infinite cafeteria of visual modalities from the transcendental realms to dine in. There are countless visions that you will swallow, and then there are countless visions that you simply will not. Your mind will gloss over. This is the nature of psychedelics. You’ll not always have a good time. They will absolutely teach you hard to learn things, make no mistake. And if you don’t use them right, they will punish you something merciless.
To have visions you can’t be thinking about them. Again, it goes back to thoughts being our enemy and thoughts having no place in existence.
The very desire for visions and meaning is what closes that door you need to walk through.
The desire, the greed, and the anxiety to have such visions,to find meaning within, prevents the true seeing of said visions. What this really means is that one is simply not ready for this. One is not prepared to have visions. It could be a terrifying or absurd vision that is not in accordance with one’s mind and one’s internal set and setting, and one simply will not be able to handle it. You can be left mentally scarred and scorched, burned to the core and mentally ill with things like that.
You will hear often about visions of demons, plagues, pestilence, death, destruction, evil and scary entities and beings… But it’s not the plant that causes these visions. The person has them in their mind already. Psychedelics reveal YOUR soul to you. Psyche Delia. Revelation of the Soul. The plant and substance cannot be blamed and no amount of dosage based harm reduction will work to prevent type of psychological harm. The mind must let go of it self and of thought. So when people are full of negativity, negative and rancid emotions, hurt, pain, suffering, anger, jealousy, hatred, and all the rest, the psychedelics simply connect you to the negative side of yourself. Those negative things don’t come from the plants, but from within.
Then again, feelings are neither negative nor positive. These are simply constructs of thought.
What we must do is simply observe. We must not seek. It is the seeking and the searching for visions and then the meaning within visions that prevents the true seeing. Our greed is our folly.
On that note, I’ve written a few other articles on observation and meditation:

I consider meditation which is pure observation of the mind while on high doses of psychedelics the only real modality to move forward in the spirit realms, and to bring back the knowledge of the ancestors.
