Poetry #82: Simplicity Is The Ultimate Form Of Sophistication

No accidents

In this universal sacrement

Coincidence?

In this specific incidence?

Synchronicity

Simplicity

They say, is the ultimate form of sophistication

From someone else’s narration

Shivering sensations

Soul memory

Trajectory

They say, the conscience

Is the soul’s past experiences

Warning the soul off a less favourable path

Swimming in the known quantum aquarium bath.

Symbols #14: Cairns

Hope For The Journey Ahead

Cairns are simple rock formations, used as landmarks to guide travelers along a path or to mark a sacred place. Cairns are some of the most universal manmade structures, and the practice of making cairns goes back thousands of years. From the Arctic territories of the Inuit to temples in Korea, cairns have been spotted all over the world.

Cairns have evolved as symbols of friendship, safety, and direction. They offer guidance for those wandering life’s path. To stumble upon a cairn is to know that you aren’t alone, that someone has traversed the same terrain you now find yourself on. In this way, cairns remind us to never give up, that the journey is yours to make as long as you keep traveling.

Psychedelics #4: Iboga

“Ibogaine is a naturally occurring psychoactive indole alkaloid found in plants in the Apocynaceae family such as Tabernanthe iboga, Voacanga africana and Tabernaemontana undulata. In the iboga plant (Tabernanthe iboga), the highest concentration of ibogaine is found in the root bark. Lower concentrations of ibogaine are found in the rest of the plant along with other indole alkaloids in the same family.

These plants are used for medicinal and ritual purposes in African spiritual traditions of the Bwiti religion in Gabon. It was first promoted in the West as having anti-addictive properties in 1962 by Howard Lotsof, who was a heroin addict himself. In France it was marketed as Lambarène and used as a stimulant. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) also studied the effects of ibogaine in the 1950s.

Today, it is illegal in the United States as is considered a Schedule I drug. However, it’s available to varying degrees in many other countries, including Canada and Mexico, as well as several European countries. It’s primarily used in treating addiction for opiates and other highly-addictive drugs, though it is also becoming more common as a tool for personal and spiritual development. Recreational use of ibogaine is nearly non-existent.

Experience
Many factors contribute to the ibogaine and iboga experiences, including dose, mindset, setting, and method of consumption. With that in mind, each individual journey will be unique to the person, time, and place, and there’s no way to predict exactly what will happen. It’s also important to note the difference between iboga and ibogaine, each of which has a different makeup and use case. However, ibogaine and iboga do induce some common experiences and effects that can help you prepare for your journey.

Benefits
Like many psychedelics, iboga has traditionally been used in ceremonial and religious contexts to connect the user to a higher level of spirituality and a deeper understanding of the self. This usually comes about due to the personal insights gained in the egoless state that iboga can produce—people often receive powerful insights into the personal issues they’re facing and feel a greater connection to the world around them. In this context, iboga can help spark personal growth in myriad forms—it’s helped people deal with depression, anxiety, PTSD, indulgent behaviors, and much more.

Symbols #13: The Endless Knot

When you first look at it, you will not be able to spot the beginning or the end of this infinite knot. It is crafted to represent that the entire world is interconnected and radiates calm and movement. Apart from this, the knot also acts as a reminder of how time is an illusion and Dharma is eternal.

It is also an embodiment of Buddha’s infinite compassion in Buddhism and symbolizes the fact that earthly life and religious thought are intertwined. Contrary to the popular belief it shows people that enlightenment need not necessarily mean that you need to give up on worldly matters.

Spirituality #9: Ascension

“The term spiritual Ascension means a magical awakening of your soul into a higher level of consciousness. It is a vibration frequency that generates positive energy and light. It unleashes your innate powers and wisdom. The ascension is an evolutionary process that is multi-dimensional and confusing.

It is an inner rebirth and expansion of your mind, body, and spirit. You learn to shed off your old thought patterns, negative beliefs, mindset, and feelings. You experience a new being hidden and dwelling within you. Upgrading the awakening process denotes a better understanding of you.

Ascension is not about becoming a superhuman. Rather it is a mere process to define your priorities in life. You let go of your human urges and worldly desires. It helps you to move towards spiritual goals and ascend to a higher realm of spiritual connection. Ascension is an experience that gives freedom to your soul. Soul frees itself from earthly ties and realizes the true joy of life.

Does the process discover what life really is? Your mental awakening motivates and inspires you to bring desired changes in your life that you have long craved for. It is like getting up from a dream and realizing the supreme power that lies within us. Ascension has immense power to unleash positive energies of growth and progress. You become strong and free-willed to define your destiny and carve it the way you want.”

Did You Know #34: How Often Do Couples Have Sex Per Week?

A 2017 study published in Archives of Sexual Behavior studied the sexual behavior of just over 26,000 people from 1989 to 2014. It found that the average adult has sex 54 times a year, or an average of about once a week. It also found that, for married couples, the number stayed almost the same — 51 times a year.
