Shape-Pattern-Shifting Orgy of Colors

A few weeks after watching the movie Waking Life and skimming through the Carlos Castaneda and Timothy Leary books I found myself indulging in Native American sessions sitting in drum circles in a revised buddhist form of way. Interested in exploring the psyche of mind I followed a session where we were asked to find a hole and crawl inside to which a person of first time using this would try to look for their animal of power.

I found my hole and crawled inside and whereby I did not find my animal but did find myself in a radical shape-pattern-shifting orgy of colors. The sight of closed eye visuals of a almost natural occuring mind altering status which leaves me feeling of a euphoric and weightless appearance. From floating above the group like a hovering baloon brought back to life by the consistent drumming like a rollercoaster coming to a stop, is the experience of which I can't wait for a control or bleak hold of lucid dreaming.
