Tonight, during our session, we delved into the topic of the inner critic and explored how self-judgment arises when we lack awareness of our thoughts 👁️
The practice of microdosing offers a valuable tool to observe our thoughts, perceptions, and emotions with greater clarity. By enhancing our awareness, we can recognize the transient and arbitrary nature of thought. In truth, thought is a construct of the human mind and lacks inherent reality.
This realization prompts us to question: what is truly real 🍄
By embracing the understanding that our thoughts are merely products of conditioning, social constructs, and personal biases that often shape our experiences and judgments without us even being fully conscious of them 👁️
However, through the practice of mindfulness and microdosing (aka M & M~!) we can cultivate a heightened level of awareness 🍄
Microdosing, provides an opportunity to observe the mind and its processes from a different perspective. It allows us to step back and witness the flow of thoughts without attachment or identification. This vantage point enables us to recognize the impermanence and illusory nature of thoughts, freeing us from the grip of self-judgment 👁️
By sharpening our awareness through microdosing and mindfulness practices, we gain insight into the arbitrary nature of our thoughts. We begin to understand that thoughts are merely mental constructs, influenced by our past experiences, societal conditioning, and cultural narratives. They do not inherently define who we are or the nature of reality.
I REPEAT, they do not inherently define who we are or the nature of reality 🍄
In this exploration, we open ourselves to a more expansive understanding of existence. We start questioning the nature of reality itself and the boundaries of our perception. Terance McKenna, known for his insightful perspectives on consciousness and altered states, invites us to contemplate the limitations of our ordinary perception and consider the possibility of a more profound and interconnected reality beyond the constructs of thought 👁️
We then spent some time "not thinking" about this quote by Buddha. Reflections are welcomed in the comments below!
“An unreflective mind is a poor roof. Passion, like the rain, floods the house. But if the roof is strong, there is shelter. Whoever follows impure thoughts Suffers in this world and the next. In both worlds he suffers And how greatly.” 🧘♂️
Keep up the great work everyone,
