I am always I'm only trying to explain it if, if people can sort of relate to it there, there are times where my my anxiety is compounded, my inability to compartmentalize you makes
a tsunami of small thing. Things turn into one large sort massive anxiety. fire and I am you have I got a travel this week. Next week, but I went traveled. Last weekend I was in livermore great show up there. Wine country. I think it is its unclear. We drove up me, invites a drug The car up, as opposed to fly, drove up the din drive up the coast, drove up the the Five one of the worst drives interstate five between here. In the bay area horrendous? it's like driving on mars until you reach a the cow, and then it's like driving through mars. If mar smelled like manure, and then at some point. You reach anderson's p soup and you ask yourself: has anyone had pea soup at anderson's it? Why
place still their wise at sign still there who the fuck drives on mars in ninety eight degree, whether in this sort of dusty shit, smelling strip of highway and and think, like a a apiece soup sounds good. This is a very regional, very specific reference. But if you knew you would know that anderson's p soup on mars has been. Forever and I anyone whose Eden there someone, I don't know what it can't be a front out there in the middle of fuckin know doesn't matter so we just and, though shows were good. The problem was last week, I told you on tuesday afternoon in my cat, my new cat, the kitten early, charlie beans, roscoe just was Eating am was pukey and Look I've owned many cats, I've had cats disappear, cats down. I've had sick cats, I've I've.
I've hospice cats but It makes no difference when one. Get sick. It's just horrendous for me, because I do I just assume that this is it and you just sort of like white. I get a dud. Why do I gotta Doug? but this cats great, I mean Arguably Sammy might be dead, but at its another story, but he's our yeah I'll figure it out we'll work it out. We ve got my probably fifteen twenty years so, but charlie sick and I gotta go out of town and amusing. You know I'm having a Cat sitters come over and sometimes we'll stay here, but that the whole thing is, if I'm not here, I freaked out and Can't we just get reports back is still not eating. He still little beauty and I'm sure he's going to die on the road. So everything sort of run through that I wish a stout, and I was almost in capable wrangling, it. Okay and everything worked horrendous,
and life did not seem worth living, triggered all by my kitten. being sick and not eating so either we drove home. the bay area for carmel by the sea I was waiting to hear you know the cat eight and then I heard back from a vat, the vet who I took him to who I am You know he still second back as well had taken, do an emergency ass. What are you needs a different type of, treatments on my guy got into my head and then to be home for just a few days: aunt em, and I'm just gonna hope that his fucking kidding and die or whatever is happening now taken the hospital today, no prior to be their overnight can be a fucking, cortisol fucking. it show through. Over time I leaving them, maybe even when I'm gone, that's where I was and then I got another email. It said charlie eight, he ate well and then my oh, my god, the it was like it
been lifted up. It was one of the better feelings in life. It was all lifted the cats, okay, every he's. Ok, it all went away start to realize. Like a looked over my life and all the stress and all the the should I put myself through mentally anxiety, fear My imagination, when left on tethered is really It's going to generate amazing things to make me feel shitty and panicky. And what do I get out of that? Why do I let my brain do that? Why does my brain do? That is the relief That good is that what life is unhappy, good day, because I was able to stop beating the shit out of myself for a few hours and also Four things weren't as bad as I thought they would be that's a great day, wow. It comes and goes, and I've got the capacity
who put my binders up and not react to things, I'm making up or my brain is making up without my consent, and you just stay the lie Hold the line mentally trick learn from meditating the short period. I did it, but I don't let thoughts drift by I stopped them in realise dude Your brain visit car that your brain, that's the road That's your brain. Look at your fingers. Your brain, hey, move your seat up a little? your brain. This. It's me choosing a song to play on the radio. The difference between happening in the immediate reality versus the just fuck screaming shit show of my brain. Screaming shit, show of panic, anxiety and fear profound. Obviously, so, All that to say charlie,
ok he's you are right. I don't know what the fuck it was, It was a cleaning product or just beanie uncap. I'm a little nervous now see. That's where I went. That's what I did. I thought there's gotta be a cleaning products.

It is good to see his on again will see later and then get off There is no human, we got it. We we ve added more staff. We unjust,
the character better. So my episode you're on a lot of the upstairs, but our episode of the now you are you gonna. We are rather dogs our on her here, with what we ve done we were almost done. of this room. So am I For me, a fan may there for me, you're done Also sure have wants it. Why spinal thing? I did it with the right spirit here. In terms of you know who I who was guiding me or or eight. I just don't think I I was younger I was in college of his you're, not really a fully formed self. Yes, so. I was just wanna fuck you strip been just freaked out, didn't do the ways through the site those are wasted on the youth. That's for sure yeah I mean did you do I've done recently? Oh yeah yeah for medicinal reason dismal now what, let's of every minute like it. But when you do
indefinitely, do you trip balls or did take a bit and it's a queer me what microwaves amuse me, the judge but little notice. This, was a micro dosing. This was for full on, but we are with the centre and somebody a sitter from siddur yeah, so what somebody's got a degree in swimming guy. No yeah goes not only room is guys would hundreds of people before, but now just somebody who's trained in second alex it and trained in psychedelics, well, not just to ignite get it. Where did he get he he comes from and I can remember score comes from air, but you just somebody walks eater and you know you do. First, if agrees that there is a whole?
a whole outlined that you do you yeah, especially one You know my past with sober for twenty two years, yeah. You would think there have to be some framework there, yet tomorrow. You know a lot of work, but you know that's how I got sober was through psychedelic, whose through various piety yeah. So that's how I kicked heroin yeah through and through pay only yo. It was one of the first can underlying base that I started off on was purely meetings and then you know We are back into twelve step programmes as well yeah which is so I'm going to take you to kick the parity,
It's almost like the last thing you want to go. Do again, it's so non addictive. Just like cell assignments like I don't want to go. Do another set yeah! I mean that's what I went through and when did you get sober? Two thousand, so it's been a while yeah. So what talking through this mushroom thing, when you sake is like I've waited go for a reason, I did some empty art therapy, which is the there is in the chair when the light when or how are they doing an end, it seems to me that trauma focused and if you what the trauma is anything, there you are. You can move through it through that process where I think it's helpful, so when you do a guided suicide, been trip for a specific region with work on a region and what's it what's the process I
personally do for health reasons. Some some underlying issues earlier about dealing with. Ok in that that that fear of death is crept up quite a bit the last few years, and I was having our time dealing with it really and now the main reason I went and did a said here was it was it how manifesting panic, anxiety the fact that tab. It is all a sudden, his right here on an everyday basis. Instead, her somewhere If I can help you with that, what's up thinking about killing me. He always have control of an era bite. So how did it, how did it help it did help? yeah yeah. What did I tell you? He didn't tell me anything really that you do or use your trip and he's like grow up. Yeah get it together. Slapped me, on the hand, have had to answer
in a baby. You know our zion, you get to mindset, when you're under that medicine. I do call a medicine and we have to. Where are you? Are you kind of realise? It is not a big difference between here and there it's kind of a one year awake for here, I'm assuming or not Is it the same away? Yeah, it's very difficult to obviously put into words. You hear that quite often sure it's very helps you calm me down and call me down quite a bit and do here but what I do now as the meditation to kind integrate that experience on a daily basis. If that makes sense, sure I go back, there went to meditate here and remember the experience and that expert never leave me that, except that experience of almost a spiritual understanding of what was implied by that bet, there's not much difference.
it's. It's a yeah. It's a pollen talks about it, a lot it's just a reboot of the autumn and I recovered such you are here and yet did quite a bit for me just the things that are really important to you in your life. You realize that's, that's yeah think about that, yeah and- and it is that important and- and it just kind of kind of the onion lines, you're a bit to what's important. How long does the reboot really last so I find that reboots in general, only last, as long as to when I upload or mail shit, say four legged, clear the disc, and then it's like what I want. I gotta keep this exactly where the meditation comes in rp on a daily basis, keep the clean reboot going yeah exactly and it works yeah, it's worth quite a bit. so our episode of rest dogs on wednesday. Here I have no idea did you. Watch. Any of you know I am

Yet that kind of thing many realised this I these he's he's anyway. a lot of stuff like that? I'm that's something unique like that, but a typical kind of western yeah. You know I'd rather rather do contemporary yeah sure jobs, like it up. For me like when I first saw, I thought power highway was good movie. Oh great movie media.

The I mean was a very decent housing and mixed reactions limits. yeah. I mean customers filmmaker yeah, I think is ceased. It's our general budget people thought it was a white savior movie and alright, because I think yeah that's right, because we mocked it and in the episode of yeah, oh Jesus, the first time you actually saw natives, speaking a language
throughout the whole maria, which was a luckily language here and down so there broke. It broke down, lotta barriers slide tat, always look at it, from that positive got me in the business here. what we can do it yeah yeah, first moved out here.
