“Life has two faces, and the one is not less real than the other. If everything would always stay the same, there would be no diversity, no tension and no balance. There would be no black as a contrast to the white, no sundown, to end the day, which started with the sunrise, and no warmth, to chase away the coldness. That, which takes care of the balance in the journey of your life, brings also trouble. But at the end it also holds a present, which we often do not see.” (Old Hawk, Sicangu Lakota)
(Altered) Thoughts, visions, voices, and other (altered) perceptions reflect the outside/the inside and vice versa, and if thoughts are voices or visions or vise versa then where do the thoughts come from (also consider (my posts about thoughts and) quantum entanglement)? If you suffer from your (altered) perceptions, you can of course change the point of view/what you’re looking at or hearing, maybe by a prayer, or, as Neem Karoli Baba once said if you’re on a psychedelic trip (and “sz” is nothing else) focus on god almighty and everything’s gonne be okay!
