The Psychedelic Experience

July 2012





The first time I read The Psychedelic Experience, was when my son died and my husband was trying to show me the different levels of death via this book.

Like The IChing, The Psychedelic Experience was a completely different language - a language I could not understand at that time - 'The Primary Clear Light', 'The Secondary Clear Light', 'The Third Bardo', 'egoloss', 'game ecstacy' - O...M...G!!!

Even so, I was very lucky to come across such a book because I now had a blueprint to the many paths of death, only I didn't know it at the time.

As I read, I learned that The Psychedelic Experience was written by three college professors - Timothy Leary (whose ashes were sent into space on a rocket along with those of Gene Roddenberry [creator of Star Trek], and one or two others), Richard Alpert (who became known as Ram Dass after his spiritual journey to India), and Ralph Metzner (founder and President of the Green Earth Foundation). These professors invited over 200 students to take part in an experiment (within a controlled environment), that involved taking the synthetically manufactured hallucinogenic drug - Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD).

I think The Psychedelic Experience is a combination of both the methods used for this experiment and The Tibetan Book of the Dead - the latter is read to the dying or dead for 49 days because it is believed that it takes that long for the consciousness of a person to leave one body and take on another. If you would like a copy of The Tibetan Book of the Dead, I have included a copy in the eBook section that was translated into english by Lama Kazi Dawa-Samdup.

There are many different ideas about what happens to us when we die and The Psychedelic Experience is one such idea. We must remember that the experiences described in this eBook were from students who were under the influence of a powerful hallucinogenic drug, so it is highly unlikely that the average 'Joe Blogs' (you and I), will experience any of the Bardos to the depth described therein.

Having said that though, the verses represent very real occurrences in our lives, and are valuable lessons to learn.

About Amelia Robinson

Amelia Robinson

I am the second eldest of five (all girls), and spent most of my growing years on an Orchard, where my father worked. Religion and Spirituality was talked about and sometimes followed, but not persistently. I always felt alone and try as I might, could never seem to find a relationship where I could give my love completely and not get hurt, until I had my children. My aunty once told me that I brought my kids up right because they love and that was the highest compliment anyone could say to me. Still floundering from relationship to relationship in search of 'true love', it wasn't until quite recently that I finally stumbled upon it - love for myself - in all its entirety ... more
