Online Environmentalism

I have taken to saying very little online of late. I am dismayed by the quality and tone of much of the exchange. I think it is overly simplistic to accuse masses of people of merely virtue signalling, nevertheless, when I was young I used to look around my environment and wonder, in a world […]

“Bee Mushroomed” says Paul Stamets – Why fungi may be a powerful key to reversing the onset of CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder)

For those of you who don’t know about Paul Stamets he is a world leading mycologist and has been a real success story for psychedelic thinking within the scientific community. He has given a number of wonderful talks and been involved directly and indirectly in the publishing of countless papers on the antiviral properties of […]

Amor fati: Why Nietzsche and I love life

My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendacity in the face of what is necessary—but love it. — Nietzsche,‘Why I Am So Clever’, in […]

If at first you don’t succeed

If at first you don’t succeed… …you should probably realise that you have made a basic logical error in assuming it could ever be otherwise, given that the definition of succession is that of one thing following another, whereas conversely, at first is the position of being before all other things.

Freedom and The State of No-Mind

I probably don’t need a preface for my particular brand of ramblings any more. I offered this to my brother to read and he deemed it: “Exactly the sort of thing you tend to write, but you know, developed a bit.” So I have a signature in my quirky writing it would seem. These things […]

My Angel

My Angel, enfold me with your wings and caress my aching body. Wipe away the tears of my suffering and the tears of my joy. Let me fall for eternity deep into your eyes and show me the Way to the very heart of that great Abyss. Show me, remind me, reprimand me, teach me, […]

Your Heart is My Heart

Sweet oblivion brings tender kisses and promises of peace. Beautiful lies to protect us from the truth. Peace dwells not in the heart of darkness; Nor darkness neither. Nothing lies in the heart of darkness, No thing but that Which thou art. It is said the truth sets us free. And so it shall, so […]

Oath of Sunnata

I do not often speak of my magickal practices here. I save that for my private magickal journal and normally see no good reason to publish it openly. However all boundaries blur and on this occasion I have chosen to publish my recent developments here at theMushroom. Partly because it relates to the changing of […]


We are Hollow. The formless Void: Kaos. Sunnata. No Body. No One. No Thing. The Ever-As-Is-Ness. Unbounded Equanimity. In every way Perfect.

The Secret Centre

“There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you.” -Paramahansa Yogananda ~ SELFLESSNESS IS THE TRUE SELF ~ Soon I will be taking an oath to deepen my commitment to this truth.
