“i am doing very well on this gofundme thanks to all my friends who have graciously donated and i am grateful. I have not been able to do anything with it for a week, due to the long power outage here. I did not even get my first ozone treatment, because the power was out at the clinic in marin county. But I will get my first one next weds with money I have raised here so far. I still would like to raise a total of $7000, which would cover ten treatments I have to work for uber the next two days to pay my bills,. so I can’t do any messaging to ask for more donations till next week and then sunday is the birthday celebration of my Guru, which I will attend. thanks to all”
Oct. 7: “My campaign has gotten off to a slow start, but it is starting to take off now, after a few weeks and i am very grateful to all my friends who have donated. I have raised enough now for almost three treatments of the total of ten that I need. I am seeing the naturopathic doctor in marin county the first time this thursday and he is an expert on treating lyme disease. I can start soon on the ozone now, I am sure, and many who do it say they feel a lot better after even two or three treatments. Others take longer, of course. Thanks to all and to Spirit who moves All and All!”
Oct. 13: “I have been feeling pretty down, because the lyme has really been hitting me even harder in the past few weeks, and messing up my liver again. However, I saw the new lyme naturopath this past week and was very inspired and impressed. He ordered a bunch of expensive tests that will show literally any and all the infections I have,since lyme usually comes with other infections, too. Fortunately, the tests are covered by medicare, because they are really necessary. The new doctor is really going to help me get well, no doubt. The bad thing is that they are so booked up in advance that i can’t get my first ozone treatment for another month. And i am at the point of being so sick, I am having a very hard time working now. Lyme disease is very much a profound ordeal. Thanks to all my friends who are helping me to get through this!! I have gotten enough money now for four out of the treatments i need, although it could take even more.”

“Dear Friends, Six years ago, while camping out, I got a tick bite that immediately got a bulls eye rash and flu like symptom came on that night. I new nothing about lyme disease then and did not get tested. A couple of months later, I was feeling tired and getting some arthritis , so I went and got tested. I tested positive for lyme and the doc gave me antibiotics, but my liver had hepatitis c at the point, and I could not tolerate antibiotics. I got the hep c cured, but right after that came down with full blown lyme disease.
“I have struggled mightily against this disease for six years , and , even though , the first two years, I was almost non functional, I studied and learned how to use herbal protocols, which helped quite a bit over time. I even make my own herb tinctures, because I have little money. I had not been able to work for a long time and was out of money, and did a fund raiser here, which kept me in my house and allowed me to make down payment for a Prius so I could drive part time for Uber in the Bay Area. I did this almost two years ago, and have been able to work for Uber and make my bills. But it has been very hard to work with lyme, due to the crushing chronic fatigue.
“Now, in the past few months. the bacteria are affecting my heart and lungs. I have had bronchitis for ten months and was getting chest pains and saw a cardiologist. He said I have a heart problem and should take prescription drugs. i am taking herbs instead. But the problem is that lyme, when it infects the heart , will ruin it over time and cause heart failure. So I need to actually cure the lyme now, or not live a lot longer. And it is getting harder and harder to work now. However, I have discovered a new natural treatment that works very well on lyme . It is called “ten pass ozone therapy” and there is a natural medicine clinic two hours away in marin county that uses it for lyme . People are getting well from chronic lyme in 3 months or less on this. The problem is that the treatments are super expensive, $700 a treatment, and I will need at least 10 of them over a period of 3 months. The doctor visits are expensive , too. So I am trying to raise $10, 000 to finally get well from lyme, and literally save my life. I need to get into the clinic as soon as possible and start treatment. I appreciate any kind of help on this, any donations. Thank you very much!!”

I microdose pretty much daily. I was so afraid at first and the first month but it has proven well worth it as I have been practicing having this in my life for 3 months now. It helps me with concentration, staying present, organising sentences, facing obstacles and fears, processing emotion, handling emotion and so much more. I also experience less pain through withdrawal as psylocibin allows my energy to flow through my chakras as opposed to getting stuck and causing unneeded stress. I am 17 months into protracted and I give a lot of credit to my shroomy fungi friends. Every morning and night I also drink at least 1 to 2 grams of lions mane mushroom in my tea or steeped in hot water. The fibers are known to help our nerves grow along with a bunch more benefits. . This is just my journey
psychodelic drugs after 2 years off clonazepam? « on: November 27, 2017, 08:18:32 pm »
It’s been almost 2 years since I last took a benzo. I feel pretty good. If I drink or smoke weed it sets me back, so I don’t do either. I eat well, exercise, meditate, do yoga. I take care of myself.
I’ve been wondering about psychodelic drugs and how they would affect my brain. I’m in a really good place right now, but theres some things in my life I’m having trouble reaching clarity on. I’m not the kinda person that would take psychodelics all the time or anything. More like once in a blue moon for the experience and the introspective reflection.
So I’m just wondering if anyone knows anything about how this would effect my brain. I’m still sensitive to gluten and marijuana and alcohol, so I’m wondering if it could screw up my brain, and if I’m better off not doing it.
Flick was a rather colorful member of benzowithdrawal.com and benzobuddies.org (he would lated be banned). As readers can see, from his cannabis-fueled ramblings below, Flick was crazy, and deeply involved in cults, long before he ever took a benzo, or heard of Ashton…
Nice post NC it’s good to feel that connection with Spirit, wherever it comes from. Personally maybe I will get into a bit of “head” stuff here myself, since I am a man after all. I find it interesting that the three biggest teachers in my life of spirituality died in the past year. Maharishi, Sri Chinmoy, and Adi Da. I learned the TM thing when I was 22 and strung out on hard drugs and could not quit them. The TM worked for me. I did it for years. Now there is a lot of controversy around Maharishi too, like maybe he approache Mia Farrow sexually, but that has pretty much been debunked now. Certainly there has been a kind of “cult” grown up around him and the “yogic flying” seems pretty silly. Still TM saved my life and Maharishi and his teachings have been very beneficial to many. I can’t find fault with his ideal of “world peace” through the vehicle of many people meditating. Now it is is easy for the doubt mind to debunk anything “spiritual” and always throw out the baby with the bath water.
When I was a young ballet dancer in New York, I went to an intro with Sri Chinmoy and this was my first experience of a transmission guru. I felt an intense descending light and bliss in his personal company and also meditatiing on his photo. I became a disciple and wore all white and tried to be celibate and hung out with Carlos Santana and John McGlauphlin who were also disciples. Now I could not handle the sort of strictness with that guru and the two musicians also left in their own time, but that does not devalue Sri Chinmoy or his group in any way. he was very respected in the United Nations did some cool yogic tricks with lifting weights and so forth. His transmission was very real and quite blissful also. Also is was pretty cultic around him , as it always is around a charismatic transmission guru. people like to feel blissful.
I came across Adi Da in 1975 in New York when I heard “Garbage and the Goddess” on WBAI radio “IN the Spirit” by lex Hixon. I had a bad flu and was so moved by Da’s laughter, that I had a sudden and spontaneous lifting of the flu. I read the KOL and saw a “A diffiicult Man” and went to California to join the community. This was the only time I have every felt actual transmission from a book. I felt it in all of Adi Da’s books. For most people, including myself, a relationship with Adi Da is a mixed bag. I felt incredible light and clear and conscious bliss and also states of non separation or “non duality” around him just like he always described in his books. There was always a hard edge to being a disciple of his though. And a certain sort of “darkness” , but I would not necessarily say it is the community’s darkness or Adi Da’s darkness. We all have our dark side and I tend toward depression and fear myself. This is a pretty weird life. Of course Adi Da was not your usual teacher or guru. I know people who were around him in the inner stuff and some feel bad about it and others feel just fine. I never was around the inner stuff and only got the “trickle down” Some people say they were hurt. I don’t know any of them personally except for a couple ahnd they are both still very angry. So everyone who was ever with Adi Da is still trying to figure the whole thing out. many play the “gotcha” game and he is easy to play this game with because of his controversial activities. I think it is a good thing to call out abuses in any arena , whether it be political or spiritual. I would say that George Bush has dwarfed any guru in history with his abuse of the whole world . So is goes round and round and we always feel abused by life itself. But Adi Da has passed now, and people are still so angry that they are beating a dead corpse. Wow I would check out this anger thing.
I am pretty versed in the Traditions since I have studied extensively in Buddhism and under Tibetan lamas and also zen and vipassana. These are real practicing schools. I have never been much attracted to the Ramana lineage myself , partially because it can be pretty mental and I have seen the circus that Poonjaji created by creating all these mini gurus like Andrew Cohen and Gangaji, both of which I have seen and I feel to be real “talking school” so to speak, Just my opinion and preference,
But many love Ramana Maharshi and also Sri Nisardagatta and I respect that for their practice with their teachings. There is certainly and incredible radiance coming off the photos of Ramana and this is not to be discounted. I feel that your really can tell something about a teacher by their photo. This is an intuitive matter and not a mental one.
I have also spent quite a bit of tiime around Ammachi , the hugging saint, and there is a very strong transmission with her too. Of course, many people debunk her too. And certainly it is somewhat “cultic” around her. So what .
I gave lots of money to Adi Dam and to Adi Da personally although it was all underground. I am pretty broke now , but i do not regret it . I felt good about it at the time and felt like i was doing some good with my money rather than hoarding something that never really belongs to you to start with. Generosity is a founding principle of Buddhism. Money comes and goes, and we are closer to death every moment, Flick Rahke
