Lords & New Creatures

Short discussion today. Storms are rolling in and I’m blogging from my phone.

The world has been turned upside down, no? Between the pandemic and civil unrest, life prior to March seems like a distant memory.

So much has changed for the majority of the world, but if I am being honest, life here in the Haunted Hoosier Heartland is largely the same, at least for me.

Which brings me to today’s topic.

In 1988 I was well into my experimentation with psychedelics. While many of my peers used drugs recreationally, I had always viewed them as a spiritual tool and utilized them in meditation and ritual.

32 years ago this very week, I was in the midst of one of those meditative experiences, having ingested a heroic dose of lysergic acid diethylamide.

A number of interesting and peculiar interactions had already taken place when dawn rolled around. As the sun first kissed the horizon I was struck by a sliver of light, like a shimmering silver thread, and My spirit was lifted up, slightly out of my body, as if I had one  foot in the world and one in the heavens.

Without words, an otherworldly intelligence was communicating with me. I instinctively knew its message. It was as crystal clear as a nursery rhyme.

The message? Something terrible was coming. Make your life here, for this land is sacred. Here you will be safe.

I took that message to heart and here I have built a life for me and my family.

For years I have wondered about the truth of that vision — that communication with something beyond myself.

Now I wonder no more…
