I went to Ecuador in Feb 2016 and wrote the following account of my experience 10 months later. I don't know why today, 4 years later, it occurs to me to post this. Maybe it will be helpful to someone.
Infinity can’t be described but it can be experienced. This is because language is a construct of duality. Infinity is a concept that is difficult to wrap your mind around, but once you experience it, either through meditation or other means, you then understand that it can’t be contained, that it just is and that we are part of it. In this experiencing, we become less identified with our ego and these physical bodies that we currently occupy.
There is a stigma around psychedelics because of cultural conditioning, but they have been used for thousands of years. Writings of the Veda in Hinduism, evidently the oldest religious text, refers to the fundamental nature of reality in connection with “soma” - a psychedelic plant. It also talks about Enlightenment - about uncovering the true nature of the self.
I write about human behavior, meditation, body awareness, and a variety of other things that pique my interest.
