For those who would like to
experience an altered reality, we have a quick
experiment that takes only minutes to learn. It's
possible this perception of reality is already
known but if not, it's a fun way to see reality
from a new perspective. Here is how it works.
- This experiment takes a floor tile or pattern
that is similar to a stone or random enough to be
- Pick one spot the size of a pencil lead and
stare at it without blinking.
- The image should become fluid and start to move
in random patterns.
- Hold the moving patterns as long as possible
without blinking until that is no longer an
- Let your eyes blink and start again.
If this is a new experience, seeing
the once solid image now seen through the illusion
of what the eyes were supposed to see takes the
mind in new directions. What is happening is that
the eyes are beginning to water as the moisture
builds up from not blinking. It is the mental
state that can be achieved watching the movement
take place around the spot that is the center of
your focus. Now isn't the time to hold that
thought because you can only go so long without
blinking. Now is the time to let the mind flow
free and see where the swirling images take the
imagination. This of course also has real-world
value in that in times of stress or anger or a
need to escape, this is that escape. How many
blinks does it take to alter your reality? That's
where the experimentation begins to find the
answers it brings.
Readers of these editorials from the two of us
will remember that in my twenties I experimented
with psychedelics on more occasions than I can
recall. 40 years later it all is a blur of similar
experiences but with one common thread. As soon as
whatever substance I had taken began to affect my
consciousness, the effect achieved with the above
exercise would be happening to my total reality.
Nothing I looked at would have any solidity.
Everything would be the same to my understanding
of what they would be when I was straight except
that now everything seemed to swirl in place. It
was the six hours of that taking place which
convinced me I no longer needed those shortcuts.
mind is a consciousness that recognizes ways that
can take it anywhere. Whether it be through
meditation, mind altering substances, simple
exercises such as staring at candles, bowls of
water, or patterns on the wall. We try to
understand where the ways lead and so we run the
gamut of experimentation to find enlightenment.
Luckily, the only resources needed for most of
them is just time and a willingness to except a
lack of limits of what the mind can achieve. So
that's all that's left, using that calm state of
mind to now set your mind free has been achieved
to getting answers to questions from your guides
or creating a thought form and then send it out
with love and light to achieve its goal. The
possibilities are endless.
In love, light and wisdom as one,
