Mystical Experiencer: Male in late teens
Current location: U.S.A.
Age at time of experience: 19
As a student, I lead a fairly hectic daily life, so I had set aside a day on the weekend to be dedicated to meditation, contemplation, and LSD. I woke up at 8 AM, made a cup of green tea, and rolled two joints of marijuana. At roughly nine, I took the LSD (200 micrograms) and then sat down to meditate until I felt the effects begin to come on.
At this point, I went to the back porch and smoked the first joint, and already a sense of profundity and understanding had begun to permeate my mental activity. I returned to my room and sat down again, and after possibly another half-hour, I came to the realization that I was suspended outside of space and time looking in, with perfect understanding of the workings and purpose of it. I felt as though I had become eternal and infinite, much like the entire universe which I was gazing down on. [I realized that] love is an underlying current running through any situation, and we tap into it in varying degrees depending on our circumstances and personal disposition.
After what could only be described as a subjective eternity (about two hours) I returned to a more normal state of consciousness in that I was decidedly back to experiencing a localized body in space-time. However, the feelings of profundity and understanding have persisted since my first mystical experience and have been compounded by each of my successive mystical experiences.
