Reflect on how you look at
This insect is not easy to see, unless you have been sampling Psilocybe cubensis, a potent species of psychedelic mushroom, known as Golden Magic Mushrooms.
A tree smiles at me and gives me the eye,
What would I see if shown a psychiatrist’s ink blot book? Would I be like the man who saw sex orgies in every picture? The psychiatrist diagnosed him as obsessed with sex. To this the patient complained,” You are worse; you’re the one showing people your dirty picture book!”
All jokes aside, in all seriousness, it is dangerous sampling mushrooms as many are poisonous and all drugs have adverse side-effects. Even prescribed drugs have side effects. Compare those side-affects with the suffering of the complaint, then decide the best action. We should listen to a doctor’s advice and then, when we have all the information on side-effects, make our own decisions. Never leave your important decisions to someone else.
Drug companies push their product; doctors are supplied with information and samples of products from drug dealers, sorry, drug companies they call themselves. Doctors are usually under pressure from impatient patients and the fast changing methods of treatment are hard to keep up with. So doctors do not always look at all the angles.
When you choose a book do you consider the authors back ground and knowledge of the subject or his motives in writing? In moderation to be entertained with relaxed light reading or thought provoking reading can be a good thing. Variety is needed otherwise you will become bored and narrow-minded in your outlook. How do doctors choose their literature?
Are you getting the full picture, are you looking at things from all angles? Are you reflecting on things of importance or hurrying to the next thing on your busy agenda. Look at everything with an open mind; it is surprising what you will see. Not all abstract art is rubbish; we need to see it through the artist’s eyes.
Nature is the best artist both conventional and abstract. Nature is the creator of all things wonderous; man can copy but never surpass nature in art, invention or any of his endeavors. To appreciate this take the time to look, the deeper you look at nature’s world the more you will see. It will turn your life around to live closer to nature.
Nature programs on T.V. are as good as it gets, the movie by that name was also good, but there is nothing like the real thing, as the patient said to his psychiatrist, after looking at the ink blot book.
