THE EXPLORATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS VIA PSYCHEDELIC SUBSTANCES


WHY DRUGS SHOULD BE DECRIMINALIZED

(1) Sovereignty over our own consciousness
We deserve the basic right to experiment and explore our conscious-experience of life via our own preferences and decisions so long as it doesn’t cause unavoidable harm to others. No one should be able to control *how* we choose to experience life and the inevitably-unique perspective of reality we live by. It makes no natural-sense to try and maintain a standard paradigm, “status quo”, or culturally normative way of life. The only natural-constant is change. I believe we should allow society and its norms evolve – so that we can further evolve naturally with the sum of life itself and so to continue living in harmony with what came before us, is here currently, and will be beyond us.

(2) To promote honest-introspection, authenticity, and the sharing of ideas about the nature of life.
Growing up, we explore ourselves in a variety of ways. Whether it be an arm we reach out, the eyes we see through, or any other form of sensible-experience, we are communicating with the environment around us *through* our sensible body. Since our births, we have always been extending outwardly - trying to learn about ourselves and our environment. In my opinion, this should not end at the boundary of our “physical” body. Consciousness is a part of us in some way, and we deserve the rights to extend our thoughts, feelings, and emotions into unique circumstances just like the rest of our sensible-experiences. What makes up "Who we are" is vast, and we deserve the right to explore that in our own time.
 
(3) To Remove Stigma - the thing that separates us and is detrimental to effective action.
Because I have consistently experienced beneficial results while respectfully using "drugs", drugs and other “altered states of consciousness” (like meditative states), should be respected as something potentially beneficial and not inherently “far out”, “radical” or “crazy”. Furthermore, people who use drugs should not be seen as criminals, but seen as people who choose to use drugs; just like coffee, alcohol, sugar, and pharmaceuticals…

(4) To END the "War on Drugs"
All it takes is an honest observation of the world: Currently, most of the world has anti-drug laws yet there is STILL massive amounts of drugs flowing all around the world. Did the alcohol-prohibition in the USA work? No. Is this prohibition of all “dangerous” drugs working to help stop unpreferred drug use now? No. It’s as simple as that. We need a different solution. In my opinion, it starts with #3: De-stigmatizing the image of drugs (change the “normal paradigm”) so that the masses see drug users as normal people and not as criminals like our current system does – so that if change is to make sense for that individual, we can have infrastructure and programs in place to help them make a healthy change for themselves. Criminalization only delays the truth.

In conclusion: I’m not going to prevent senseful solutions from being heard... It’s only right that we share our thoughts and feelings! We cannot expect change to occur, we need to CREATE IT ourselves! And so I ask for your support in this endeavour!

MY PLEDGE TO YOU

As I grow, I will use my music, voice, and creations to encourage people’s unique expression of their natural beauty through the means of self-honesty and self-empowerment; to inspire people to live their greatest life and make positive and naturally-aligned decisions; and to further foster a healthy future as a planet-ecosystem and beyond. I will show people, by example, how to be relatable and accepting of all aspects of the human experience – so that we can have the conversations we need to – and so to relate as parts of nature, NOT nations - for the greater good of nature and therefor ourselves. (Since nature supports us)

MUSICAL CREATIONS


WHAT YOUR SUPPORT DOES

Your supports funds HUNDREDS OF HOURS of physical training, mindful training, emotional training, and skillful training. Being a skilled expresser of the intricacies of human experience takes great precision. That precision comes from developing the awareness of our senses, emotions, body, mind, and entire self collectively as a whole - for if one does cannot experience with clearity, one cannot express with clearity. 

Training includes: (1) Flowstate Exercises for a healthy range of motion & development of the senses (2) Instrumental Practice [Guitar, throat, & body as a whole] (3) Physical Exercise to support wholesome & highly energetic creation [Yoga, Stretching, Chi Gong, Body Flow & Physical Training] (4) Mindfulness & Awareness [Meditation, Vocal Chants to observe inner vibrations and energy channels (scientifically backed) & Being Pure] (5) Proper Dieting

LANGUAGE STUDY

(6) Language Training: I am currently studying spanish (The 3rd most learned language). As an aspiring linguist and lover of nature's expressions: I want to be able to transpose my findings from english to other languages & cultures. With these skills, I will also explore the foundational roots of what make language and symbols ultimately meaningful to us. I eventually wish to learn an ancient language like sanskrit and the most populated language today: Chinese. Having multiple foundations of meaningful-expression will also help compound my musical precision!

AND FINALLY

Everything within and of one's body affects the expression of oneself. Everything is important if you want to express up to the limits of one's nature. AND I DO. AND I WILL.

All of this training snowballs human effectiveness. SNOW me some doe ($$) and we'll create one hell of a avalanche! Your Support is GREATLY APPRECIATED! Ultimately, everything I do is for you. Life is nothing without others. If I could give everyone what I know under the condition it would kill me, I would do it. Life is nothing without others being there with you! LET'S DO THIS!

Goals
$106 of $150 per month
I currently use a place for self-care and self-experiments called the Dhyana Center in Sebastopol, CA.

(here: https://www.dhyanacenter.com/selfcare)

Being homeless, this is very important to me. I get unlimited showers, bath uses, steam room visits, and clean water/salts.

I am hoping that I can continue to use this place for self-experimentation and self-care. I tend to use it daily in conjunction with meditative practices, musical practices, and other biologically-tuned studies. (Heat stress  & sweating is very good for ya) They also offer water: cucumber, lemon, and regular water + electrolyte salts. At the moment, I have no other source of water except tap. 

The membership costs $99/month (Direct deposit).  Anything more that I receive will be used for food or other necessities.
