How to Love: Legendary Zen Buddhist Teacher Thich Nhat Hanh on Mastering the Art of “Interbeing”

.

.

 

What is love?  What does it mean?  The mystery remains, even throughout human history and the many times philosophers, mathematicians, poets, artists... you name them, have tried to answer.

Learning to meet this mystery with the full realness of our being — to show up for it with absolute clarity of intention — is the dance of life.

This is what Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietmamese Zen Buddhist monk wrote in How to Love , a collection of his thoughts and insights on human behaviour.

On of the most interesting things he mentions about love is that ''understanding is love's other name'' - that to love another means to fully understand his or her suffering.   If you don't understand, you can't love.

The remainder of How to Love explores the simple, profoundly transformative daily practices of love and understanding, which apply not only to romantic relationships but to all forms of “interbeing.”

This article is about Microdosing with LSD, that is taking very small quantities that don't make you high or that are barely perceptible.

We have been hearing a lot about micro dosing lately.  There are loads of people talking about how very small doses of acid could, according to  make you more focused, athletic, attentive, and creative.

Rolling Stone, HuffPo, Vice, and even business publications like Forbes and Tech Insider talk about it.

Well...is ti true?

The author of this article tried it for us and wrote about it in detail, and lets just say that it is quite an interesting testimony: ''I wasn't high. It wasn't like being stoned or tripping. It was just this extra sense of awareness and focus. Fadiman likes to compare it to a tune-up.''

New Psychedelic Mushroom Species Discovered: Psilocybe Germanica

.

.

Exciting times for psychonauts!

Psilocybe germanica was recently discovered in Germany.

What truly sets Psilocybe germanica aside from its relatives in the Psilocybe genus, however, is its psychoactive content. The new strain is comprised of high amounts of both psilocybin, the primary hallucinogenic compound of psychedelic mushrooms, and baeocystin, a psilocybin mushroom alkaloid and analog of psilocybin.

This is fascinating as most of the psychoactive mushroom species that possess this amount of psilocybin are more often correlated with high amounts of psilocyn, a substituted tryptamine alkaloid, rather than baocystin. Little is known about baocystin other than that it may cause temporary respiratory depression, something that could be problematic for an individual with chronic breathing issues.
