TERENCE MCKENNA – PSYCHEDELIC BARD

“You are a divine being. You matter, you count. You come from realms of unimaginable power and light, and you will return to those realms” – Terence McKenna

“Praised by hundreds of thousands of zealous soul-seekers worldwide, Terence McKenna’s accounts of his experiences with psychedelic substances have gifted us with astounding glimpses into the otherworldly. His lyrical intellect and learned interests included shamanism, renaissance alchemy, archeology, Jungian psychology, and technology. This made him a polymath like the psychedelic scene had never seen. May this brief portrayal of his existence be a homage to the knowledge he transmitted to our curious minds and the freedom to experiment he instilled in our wandering souls.”

“Terence brought us an infinite wealth of information from his journeys in this, and other, existences. Not a single psychonaut after him would come close to the phantasmagorical way he would weave stories to bring us closer to the unfathomable dimensions of reality. He made them describable, and he never did it with a Messianic undertone—his messages were always clearly idiosyncratic and inviting to discussion and attestation. As he would humbly state, close to his demise: “My real function for people was permission. Essentially what I existed for was to say, ‘Go ahead, you’ll live through it, get loaded, you don’t have to be afraid’”. He will be forever treasured for his contributions to the expansion of consciousness of the souls he touched with his account of the lore of the beyond.”

Brexit & Nationalism – A Transpersonal Perspective

Brexit & Nationalism – A Transpersonal Perspective

Is this an issue of Self vs Other? Or, put another way in the poignantly titled song by Pink Floyd, Us and Them. Although this article is about the recent referendum in the UK regarding it’s membership in the European Union (EU), there may be a universal, global message (or question) underlying these political and social events.

Given our increasing global technological interconnectedness; growing depletion of resources; growing global population; and growing division between the wealthy and the poor; is a nationalistic-self-centered and divisive world-view going to serve us in the future?

“There is, accordingly, every reason to expect a quantum shift in consciousness today.”

“We claim that a transpersonal vision challenges us to reform our ego-centred notions of identity and boundaries.”

“Mystics and prophets throughout the ages have envisioned a time when humanity embraces a different kind of consciousness, one that unites us rather than separates us; one that transcends boundaries.”

“Alongside the tendency to fragment and isolate, we are witnessing global transcendence of borders, a deeper realisation of our interconnectedness in the information age. That reflects the Zeitgeit, the new world waiting to be fully realised, not just with head but also with heart.”

“We hold that the fundamental issue revolves around the polarity of ‘self versus other’ and the role of boundaries. As long as we peddle the rhetoric of division and as long as we follow an adversarial style of politics, we create fragmentation and we promote insularity. Continuing to define ourselves through differentiation, we necessarily adopt a defensive stance to protect what defines us, and boundaries are of course crucial in this process.”

“Just as the individual conscious sphere of mind is predicated on a deeper personal unconscious process, so a transpersonal perspective holds that we are all interacting in our own distinctive ways with a deeper collective process, of which most are oblivious.”

“At a time when fragmentation seems to loom at every horizon, adopting a transpersonal viewpoint may not only enable us to gain greater insight into the dynamics which continue to fuel the unfolding Brexit narrative, but it may enable us to envision a new kind of society, with a reformulated view of politics, governance, economics, and community development.”

“From our transpersonal perspective, we assert that the stance of ‘self versus other’ is fuelled by a deeper dynamic concerning differing levels of identity. There is a tension within every individual – predicated on the collective substratum – between the ego with its impetus to reinforce those boundaries that preserve it, on the one hand, and, on the other, the desire to merge with something larger; a tension, to put it in Jungian terms, between ‘ego and Self,’ with the former representing our everyday sense of ‘I’ and the latter expanding our identity by rooting it in the deeper collective process. As long as we hold onto our isolationist stance we are unable to expand our awareness and embrace the Self.”
