The Love Religions of Ancient Psychedelic Bands
« on: September 03, 2011, 08:05:08 pm »
we're pagan, we worship trees, live in them, and would defend a tree with our lives

he spiritual remnants of ancient psychedelic bands

i want to fly this guitar like a broom
and take it to the moon
the dharma of the herbs,
i wish there was more room in that upside down grove to plant trees
instead of stones
because maybe they'd learn how to not care so much
about directions
and resurrections, no big deal
fairy tales are wax clothing, fading away, here again some endless
wandering morning
we made clouds, to feed the yoga trees
yoga trees, yoga trees,
how to tune a magical gathering, the mushrooms are out
everyone knows, or maybe its a spirit which has descending on this place
perhaps there is some kind dragon, who protects the wood,
all i have are these emanations, from a world thats all light
you talk to me like fading away paint,  the juices of the berries
the water thats collected through all the leaves, reflecting the breeze
and the orange streaks across the sky, mushroom weather, you say
might go picking, someone, someone in the sun, some elemental sage
delighting in the way, the cosmos plays, with the games, where does it come from
please show your face, was it a strange vow?
a great bodhisattva, had shown the way... I offer thus to InI
to unite in every land, and let them weave together, and mountains
stay where they are
and we're pagan, we worship trees, live in them, and would defend a
tree with our lives
in meditation, the spirits of the ants, we become like so much moving
amber, and deeper on, down trails
with the love of the sun, deep inside, to the core of the earth, and
the shaman, rocks on, healing with a vibe,
the colors go on, everywhere, in the winter there is an inner blossom
the ever greens have always shown the way, quietly, wisdom, always good
i call to the chaotic heavens, love runs through my hands,
it doesn't matter, i never understood any of you, we got along well enough
like a salmon dancing in the peat, by lightning struck melded with the deer
their contents scattered across the universe, the old contents of their spirits
the basis of our universe, nurtured us as nectar in that one moment,
for a moment
I saw the true blessed anarchy of everything at once, I saw what must
have been the gods, the cosmic trees, all those beings who lived in
space,
I felt cool, I meditated on that dharma
as a hallucination world spilled into a world of lies and death,
waiting to grow
so many seeds, you could never hold it back, these waves from a
strange world, seems like so much
but its nothing, this is the medicine of legend, these are the ways
dreams begin to grow
every fairy welcomes the Spirit, and humans do too, again we return
our astral truths can breathe again, another way of life becomes
apparent
I go forth riding into the dream, all that we have in a spark of zen
in the ever shifting sea, this is the beginning of true adventure,
this healing, subtle, infinity ones, infinite possibility, we have
come face to face with, our secrets are like gravity, and not by
choice but by nature, such is tao, an it harm none we deliver the
scroll of love, freedom, happiness, infinity, we begin to grow, we
grow what we need, we help eachother out, it seems everyone had become
a zen master, and left the hermitage suddenly, an old ghost washed
away, we wake on the grass and never understood how we got there, must
have been wandering around drunk, still we stayed together
the heavens guide us, like good signs, in freedom, we float within the
stream, the river has returned,
I breathe the water, and smile, i feel alive again. life is
everywhere, this insane planet, Gaia, bless you and your crazy way,
your steady wisdom, drunken master, we bow to you in the lifestream of
psychedelia.

Acyually, I'm a Hellenic Pagan and would be more likely to defend my city than my tree.  Not that I don't like trees, but my religion doesn't worship them nor do I live in them.

Somewhat off-topically, Randall, can something be done about the typo in the prefix?  "Africian" is making me twitch.

Ummm, no?

Quote from: rainbowgrower;17701



What the heck is this?
Stream of consciousness-stuff?
I really don't think it belongs under the Pagen Religions folder.
And what does dharma and bodhisvatta got to do with African Trad.

Sorry. You are making NO sense. At. All.

Is this a good time to start posting recipes? I had a wonderful chocolate cake at a birthday party today, but forgot to ask how she made it.

My understanding of this statement was not that it applied to everyone on this board, or pagans in general, but to the group or individuals referred to in the story it is a part of.

Unfortunately, since the OP is nigh incomprehensible, constructing understandings of their statements is a little tricky.
