I was thinking of joining a new forum run by autistics apparently. I was really worried when I saw the admin of the site posting nasty comments about American people.
Im American and autistic so it bothered me greatly that an admin of an autistic forum would say this. I do understand that America has started some really negative info about cures etc but does that mean that American folk are backwards? I’m autistic but now I realise I’m considered as backwards too. :(
I also saw another thread that seemed to suggest that taking drugs is a good idea...? Not prescribed drugs but illegal drugs like ‘ayahuasca’... What’s Ayahuasca?
One of, if not the, most powerful hallucinogenic's on our planet. Used in some of the more serious shamanic ceremonies. It physically cleanses the body and mind very violently (take spare underwear- body cleansing is extreme).
Used properly it is effective in dealing with extreme trauma and social conditioning like masking. However used improperly as it often is today it's incredibly destructive - bringing up emotional issues that the person has no way of dealing with and physically taxing even the strongest, not to mention dehydration from the vomiting (very extreme cleansing).
Legal issue aside, using without proper supervision and direction from a skilled guide (actual shaman) does a lot of harm. Even then it can be risky not all shaman's are skilled enough to deal with everything that may happen or assess physical tolerance, absolute last resort only.
Thanks for reply
It seems that the thread about drugs has been deleted now.
I really hate generalisations like this. SOME parts of American culture do have a tendency to build confidence and congratulate people regardless of merit. Where people say something stupid they are less likely to be told and grow more expressive of stupid ideas. The UK for example has just as many stupid people, but they are less vocal and less likely to be given a public stage - creating illusion that we have less stupid people.
Things done in private, away from other's awareness, like voting for example shows this is purely illusion.
