The Plant Teacher

This is great. They’ve put into words most of what I felt too. No bullshit in here. The feeling of oneness, the presence of the intelligence of the plant inside, the divine feminine mother – Gaya, the loving joy… I’ve learned a lot from Her, as Gabor Mate said, and I long to hear the icaros again…

James Fadiman:

“Ayahuasca was fine seeing what people treated each other as long as they killed each other. But when they started killing plants, Ayahuasca said “This is not correct!” and the peculiarity of the teacher plants, and we know that there are more than one, but Ayahuasca is the one we know best, tobacco is another. But these are the plants who were given the job of dealing with us. And I bet that they didn’t ask for it. I have this imagining of the congress of the plants that said “Somebody has to talk to humans. Who’s gonna do it?” “I’m not gonna do it.”, “I’m not gonna do it”, “Who’s gonna do it?”, “I don’t wanna touch them.” “

 

Spiritual Partnership

“There is no security in spiritual partnership. Spiritual partners are together to grow spiritually, not sooth one another’s fears. On the contrary, they support one another in experiencing their fears and healing the sources of them.
Spiritual partners are patient and caring, but patience and caring are not enough to keep them together. They appreciate one another, but appreciation is not enough either. They love one another, but even love is not enough.
Only commitment to creating authentic power can keep spiritual partners together through the challenges of unearthing, experiencing, and healing frightened parts of their personalities. Five-sensory individuals in old type relationships commit to one another, their relationships, and their five-sensory goals. Spiritual partners commit to growing spiritually into supporting one another in growing spiritually.”
