Mention The Plants
I believe hippie culture in Australia can thank magic mushrooms for
its quiet inspiration. During the sixties and seventies, psilocybin
cubensis and other minor psychedelic mushrooms, including a few native
species, took on the work of raising human consciousness after generations
of systematic programming.
Then in 1995 something truly wonderful happened on the east coast of
Australia; a certain species of Acacia extended itself to communicate
with humans, to share its psychedelic nature ... and this shy little
wattle tree turned out to be the key to multidimensional knowledge!
A newfound enthusiasm quickly snowballed as everything began to dramatically
change. Art, music and general knowledge expanded; and the alternative
culture began to gel once more into a coherent tribal underground. A
fledgling shamanism stirred within the land of love, re-initiating the
ever-evolving process of awakening.
Magic medicine plants journeyed from all over the world to align their
own plant messages with Acacia, supporting this courageous new frequency.
The proud San Pedro cactus came from across the seas to teach us of
the deep majestic beauty of life and how we must surrender to the Spirit
Ayahuasca vines crept in to help deliver the message: Honour the earth
with your love, for everything comes from her and her plant kingdom:
our air, food, medicine, clothing, and religious experiences and spiritual
knowledge... even space travel, if that’s what you so desire!
There was immense joy as the awakening continued to spread, such was
the magic of these plants, with legendary psychedelic parties and wild
visions and successful healing with plant medicines all working their
way into the everyday fabric of life. Shamanic houses materialised and
tremendous rivalries grew as markets opened up for all things herbal.
All that had changed by 2006, with the formation of special federal
crime bodies, the introduction of behind-closed-doors inquiries, and
top-secret star chambers with 10-billion-dollar budgets to spend each
year. Shamanism became the new secret enemy.
But what to do? This shamanism-thing is a hard topic to get your head
around, let alone master. Myriad deeper sub-strata of consciousness
seethe and boil beneath the oppression of the ages, literally just a
molecule away. One day the earth and its people will be free, and we
will need all the knowledge the plants have given us. The truth cannot
be suppressed forever!
I believe it is the plants who are the healers, as well as the shamans
themselves. But powerful plants have powerful enemies too. That’s
why these plant allies need friends like you and me, as they love to
share everything they have! The magic of psychedelic plants is boundless,
the mystery ever unfolding, trip by trip, into a fantastic story that
never ends ... never can! And that’s the elegant beauty of a fractal
reality. I can’t even begin to describe its magnificence; that
remains for you to discover yourself!
