    I voted yes. I don't think I'd have the spiritual understanding I have today if I didn't use the LSD and mushrooms I did. Of course, my spirituallity is not christian or anything like it.

    Yeah, I can certainly relate. It was as if a veil was lifted from my eyes and I realized that what we deem "reality" is not as concrete as one might think. It's amazing to think that reality can be defied by a puff of smoke(salvia), a drop of liquid(LSD) or a mushroom(Psilocybin).

    I have experienced 90% of my spiritual growth after I stopped taking mushrooms and doing acid. I had some significant mind and perceptions altering experiences on shrooms but I'm leaning towards thinking of the psyliciben high as an enima for the conscious. It does have some fairly long short term effects on anxiety levels. Under the right circumstances a good shroom trip with good friends can be harmless and beneficial in some ways. But spiritual growth is different for everyone, and I say psychadelics can possibly aid spiritual growth.
