    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

Then the splurges of euphoria/pleasure will stream in for no reason at all and I'll just feel far too content with it to try to achieve anything.


    Basically makes me split my time between repetitive, pointless pursuits, and laziness. Such a pain.

    What's a shen?
    Shen is the spiritual force in us which is immortal. Smoking ganja destroys the link to Shen for Shen is raised only with total mastery of a skill, even the skill of no-skill, and hence no transcendence is actually occurring, but rather an ephemeral, fleeting synthetic experience of exhalation which is nothing more than a body buzz.

    Can you imagine feeling the way you do when you smoke all the time? It is possible, but only after many years of practicing sobriety and having nearly perfect physical discipline.

    Nothing more than a body buzz eh? Clearly you've never blown any medical kush or wax or the like. Also, I don't buy into all that hippie lingo so shens to me are nothing more than time consuming placebos.

    Ahh...not a fan of the perspicacious

    To each their own....

    But Shen is only one word for it...every culture has their own way of expressing the same simple idea.

    Um, is it bad if you completely identify with the OP despite never having had used an illicit substance in your life?

    I would say no. People of any condition under the sun can have almost any given mental quirk there is, not to mention substance abuse doesn't have to be illicit to contribute to unusual experiences down the road. Alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, etc. are all way more powerful drugs than most give them credit for.

    So just a couple weeks ago I was in the car with the driving instructor, in the midst of taking my final driving test to acquire my license.

    That "Love Me Like You Do" song was playing on the radio, the sun was out, it was warm, and I seriously felt much better than normal. Not because I passed the test and was about to drive independently, mind you -- nothing about my life or my future or any of that irrelevant bullshit of reality -- this was better. This was more important than reality. I was just hearing that song playing, imagining myself floating out in space making out with this chick -- I felt alive.



    It's stupid, but it was good. Felt as if my surroundings offered true possibilities, as the really do, new things to see, lives to live, things to explore.

    I feel lifted at emotion expectations, especially in repeated already viewed films, art, etc.
    Often, things that mean little by their own but as a whole/group have a result. I'm often in my own head, finding the small details powerful. Brilliant execution is something I suspect few witness, but I see it everywhere, and it can bring me to tears.

    All I can say is that if you get high a lot or have messed with a lot of chemicals then there's a possibility you've done something to your body chemistry and brain chemistry or wiring and that's what's causing this, maybe you are right about the triggering phase, I dont know but I've not experienced that no.
