Hey everyone, i had a depressing acid trip. It was like 2 months ago late june in my friend’s house while his parents were out. That was my first mistake. I forgot a lot about myself through some misunderstood train of thought about the nature of humans, bad advice from my asocial friends, and this cowardly mindset i’ve been walking around with since the bad trip. During it, i felt this profound sense of loss, of inactivity and uselessness. The feeling stuck with me afterwards and was compounded because i went to work the next day and could literally not function. I was useless. Acid tends to stick with me for about a week, giving a sort of afterglow. I guess its the remnants of my triply mindset leaving its mark. Well, anyways, here’s the current problem: I don’t know what money’s good for anymore. Its a problem because it IS good for something, i knew that beforehand, its not some purely evil thing, it can’t be, it can be used for good, i just….give me some ideas?
Money is for buying things to spend time using
aidan: money is an illusion. after all, what makes a U.S. federal reserve note more valuable than Monopoly money? we live in a society that runs on the stuff, so go with it. not a matter of judging it or liking it, like, go with the flow in all aspects of life. i can fell ya about being down over life in general – man, just study, experience, and most important, help people and young people to get out of the trap of it all.
I’m right there with ya. Once you start to see how the world would operate so much cleaner and more efficient it becomes apparent the destruction that has happened and is happening because that system of money is in place. The fate of our planet is largely in the hands of those who were the most greedy. Check out the “Venus project” if you haven’t seen it. And so no I don’t believe money to be good for anything at all.
