What have you seen that shook you to your foundations...
...and you don’t know why?

For me, it was Picasso’s Woman Ironing. It is, after all, by Picasso, who is considered great for a reason.

I came upon it unexpectedly in the museum and the painting reached out and seized me by the shoulders and would not let me go. Oblivious to any who might have thought me a fool or demented, I stood there and wept.

I still could not give you reasons. It just touched where I lived.

Samael in his purest forms
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] first time it was. By the third time I was complacent. Now we are just like old acquainted souls.

And there is a moral there!
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] yes. Like the movie Revenant. Are you afraid to die ? No. Why not. Because ive done it already

ComfortablyNumb (and I spent years that way) your name reminds me of the favorite t-shirt I ever owned. It got very old and I had to put it down. On the front it read ‘pleasantly confused’ and on the back, ‘I don’t know where we’ve been but it’s been a lovely afternoon.’

[@34948,IJustWantToSleep] was that traumatic for you at that age or just like ‘huh! So that’s how it’s done!’

[@397436,xSharp] and belladonna is natural, too, and can be beneficial in skilled hands. Thst’s the sticking point, skill, and unfortunately, those who want to blast off for somewhere else often don’t consider whether or not they know what they’re talking about.

[@397436,xSharp] one of my favorite novels of all the, Clan of the Cave Bear delves into that pretty thoroughly.

[@663519,Mamapolo2016] i think i might give that a read

have you ever heard of ayahuasca? it is made traditionally in the amazon by the same tribes that have always been there.

the thing is these people made this dmt from plants (a bark from a certain tree and a vine) that grow in separate regions of the jungle and it has a particular way of being cooked up, they have no lab equipment so when the scientists came and saw this, they asked the tribals how they figured out how to make this dmt, which is produced naturally in the human brain at certain times.

the tribals said that the plants themselves told them how to make it, perhaps nature itself gave the gift of hallucinogenics in order to help us further evolve, or at least to help us connect with it?

She was a Russian woman. If ever I were to believe in love at first sight it would have been for her. It ended very badly, but it left me changed. I would say beyond that, music can shake me to the core on first listen but visually I'm pretty hard to impress to THAT degree.
[@689027,Icantsoishant] The spy who screwed you
Mamapolo2016 · 61-69, F
[@689027,Icantsoishant] That happened to my brother once, a half century ago. They never even met, but he speaks of her to this day.

And it’s a shame your name swapped end for end isn’t true of all of us. ‘I shan’t so I can’t’ would solve SO many problems.

Isn’t it something when you’re transported to a place within yourself that you never knew existed? I experienced that with a movie I saw recently.
Silentangel · 26-30, F
Yeah I've had a few experiences my weirdest one is a friend of mine got obessed walking round our farm 6pm on the dot. I went with him one night and we got near the old well. His entire body language changed (well has got a manhole cover screwed on top of it) . We had our first hand to hand combat fight 😱. I didn't fear him in any way just saw he changed. But something was definitely watching us that night.
