Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default The Nature of Matter

A very profound thing; Matter.
Composed of atoms and even much more tinier particles;
it's defined as anything that takes up space and has mass
and (contemplating it today) even within the atom, there
is matter. And even within that matter, there exists
more of it with no name. In fact, i can't intuit ANY realm
that Matter does not dwell in... simultaneously. Can you?
While it is gaseous, it is also liquid, solid and ethereal all
at the same time. While it is something; it is also nothing
at all. It even seems to have a spiritual nature in the form
of consciousness; as if it seeks to be understood not just on
one level, but on the myriad levels that it exists and in all
it's natures, including that creative alchemic nature it has
as it goes thru it's many transformations. We cannot ever
expect Matter to remain the same. Notice how it's a lot
like us?
And funny what goes on when some matter matters. Ha!
How it likes to occupy space in our minds and in our hearts.
So even thought is matter; like air. And emotions; like water.
And devotion; like fire. All matter.
It occurs to me that maybe Matter fully realized could be
the very stuff that Enlightenment is made of. Perhaps
Enlightenment is the very heart of Matter.
