I am going to say something here, OP, and it might be perceived as sounding sarcastic and as I'm poking fun; please believe me that that is not my intention, but I lack a different manner of saying it. Here goes:
I experienced a similar ephiphany, by myself, sitting on the breakers at Santa Cruz in 1981. It felt nearly physical, and I think I recoiled a little bit, drawing my feet out of the water. It came without warning, nor beckoning, and I suddenly felt a distinct part of a greater whole, and thought that I could feel the damage to the processes of the Earth, and simeultaneously, the energies that repaired her and made her whole.
Since that time, I have felt an affinity toward water -- which is no suprise in itself, since I was born and raised always around flowing water -- but I see water, particularly oceans almost as a giant standing battery. It gives, it takes, it exchanges and makes a person better. When I feel less than myself, I float on my back in the sea..... one time a few months ago achieving such peace and relaxation that I actually fell asleep for a few minutes, drifting with the current, my arms behind my head, legs crossed, justing drifting (about 100 yards).
That feeling has never left me that I gained so many years ago. Was it induced or enhanced by an 'altered state'? Perhaps, but it is real, and I feel it still. I hope it stays with you as well. It's a positive life-changing event and nothing is ever mundane and the same.

Civilizations have been using entheogens throughout history for enlightentenment. Your post has demonstrated your perceived superiority to all of them. When you believe you know everything, you stop learning, and to borrow a quote, "you're a legend in your own mind".

You got ahold of some bad shrooms, their like acid they can stick with you for awhile. If I was you I would keep this to yourself and if you live with your family, lock up all the weapons and knives and let your wife hid the key cause they could be in danger. Also I would find a new supplier for your weed or shrooms because the guy your getting them from now is cutting them with acid or bleach.
I love threads like this because it helps me to refine my lists... my "people who need help" and "people you can trust" and "people who are too far gone" and a cpl other categories, but topics like this help me to get them all worked out.

Oh yeah, it seems to me that there is a collective awakening/eveloution taking place within a portion of the population. And that we may very well find ourselves evolving in a sense.

So....if thoughts are things and thoughts are energy then thoughts are energetic beings? Some neg some pos? A projected thought is something used by someone targeting someone else? So a parasitic thought form is something that attaches to you randomly or is it something else? is it something you have watched too often like bad TV? OK, searching Echart Tolle......
Thank you for the lead.

You spoke of body vibrations. I have recently opened my heart chakra...at least I think I did. Not long after that, I started having what feels like a tickling or vibration in the area just right of my heart on my chest. It happens almost constantly. If I touch the area, it will start vibrating but most of the time it just does it without touching it. It usually last about 15 or 20 seconds. Is this what you mean by body vibrations??
