.The Other Side.

From the night I ate two giant mushrooms described by the Mushroom Man who gave them to me as “Pure Death.”…
Went insane thinking about all the elements of humanity screaming to know the truth.
Religions, New Ages, Sciences, Hucksters all.
Claiming they KNEW the Truth, BUT NEVER STATING IT.
As my mind reeled with all the different visions of people screaming only they knew the truth, it snapped and screamed back: “WHAT IS THE TRUTH?”
After being what felt like pinned down to a couch for several hours, and “Staring into the Abyss”, I had passed through an experience that informed me “You are Reflections of True Reality; and you are still at the EDGE OF THE DREAM, moving towards the center.”

Which prolly makes even less sense then the painting…
Everywhere I look now, I see subconscious rumblings of this core Truth, in the works of humanity… Even as we try to bury it under more and more over analytic explanation and definition.

“In “The Fire From Within”: chapter 3, paragraph 48, Carlos Castaneda tells us that don Juan said that “the old seers…actually saw the indescribable force which is the source of all sentient beings. They called it the Eagle…”
And an absolutely literal way of looking at It:
