MUSHROOMS AND MANKIND
experience attained by the Entheogenic [En(in)theo(God)gen(generation)]
use of this mushroom is extremely valuable, yet the rules for
experimentation of this type are unforgiving. NEVER eat ANY mushroom,
unless you are absolutely certain that it is the one you want. VERIFY its
identification with an expert mycologist. This is not a recreational
experience. The Shamanic "DEATH (and REBIRTH) EXPERIENCE" is called that
for a very good reason (it is, what it is). When experimenting with
entheogenic mushrooms, always have a few friends along (as monitors) in
case you need to be assured that you are not dying. RESEARCH this before
experimenting. Plan a full day for your experience. This is not a
scheduled substance, responsible and careful use will keep it that way. BE
SMART, Ever onward. Most of all, JUST SAY KNOW.. James.
Figure 1. Amanita muscaria
A typical RED variety of the Amanita muscaria, the single most written about and mystically symbolized mushroom throughout history. As you will see, this mushroom played a major role in the formulation of nearly every world religion and world mythology. It is the primary focus of this investigation.
The Amanita muscaria mushroom can be
found at the roots of most of the religious writings our planet has to
offer. Yet you will find within these pages very little in way of
endorsement of any particular religion. However, please bear with me when
I interject my own philosophical opinions. Remember, I admit openly that I
certainly do not know everything. This is the result of a serious study of
the doctrinal/scriptural substance of each of the presented religions, and
an exploration into the hidden symbology and meanings within them. The
discovery that, although the Sacramental substance is unquestionably
present, the organizations themselves have obscured the knowledge of it,
was an enigma. That is, until the political nature at the roots of
religion itself had been uncovered. Today's religions do not answer this
important question. They explain it away as purely symbolic, or of no
importance. Religion has polluted itself by denying its own source, and by
removing the individual's ability to experience the effects produced by
the substance that imparts GNOSIS (the joining together of the
consciousness with the consciousness of the Divine). By the removal of
this key knowledge, religions themselves become lies; especially when the
same systems inspired by Entheogens condemn their usage.
Figure 2. Artwork as Revelator
Amanita muscaria is a "good luck charm", associated with the four-leafed-clover in artwork and traditional superstition. It is not restricted to pictorial art in obvious places. Mushroom-associated symbolism is found throughout religious artwork as well. Decoding these religious art symbols has always been a favorite pass-time of mine; it seems when you start to look, there is mushroom imagery everywhere, especially when the artist is one of those "in the know", as revealed through their usage of these special symbols. For good reason, as the story unfolds you find that the depth of your understanding of religious art, is directly associated with the depth of your understanding of the symbols.
Figure 3. The Little People
Often associated with Gnomes, Fairies and "little people", the beauty of this mushroom makes it a favorite for artists. Certain artists also reveal deeper symbolic information. The mystical aspect is generally reserved for those that happen to be "in the know".
Figure 4. Santa as a Shaman
Today's Santa Claus is a metamorphosis of many older mythologies, including Thor or Donner (German) who wears red and rides in a "Golden Flying Chariot" pulled by two Goats (Cracker and Gnasher). In a sense, these goats were the ancestors to the now popular reindeer. What would the red and gold clad angel be doing with that nice basket? An Easter basket at Christmas is an interesting concept.
Christmas is commonly thought of as a
Christian holiday (the birth of Jesus). Many Christian beliefs and
traditions were borrowed from more ancient religions and mythologies. This
is well documented by authors such as Gerald Massey, Godfrey Higgins,
Robert Graves, Kersey Graves and many others. The virgin birth, the
incarnation of God, the sacrament, Christmas, Easter, etc. have all been
adopted/stolen by Christianity as its own.
Figure 5. Christmas Ornaments
One of the traditions, of ornamenting a tree, comes from the tradition of "The Paradise tree", a fir tree decorated with apples (representing the fruit of the "Tree of Knowledge" in the "Garden of Eden"). This "fruit" will be discussed later as the Amanita. During Germany's Middle Ages, a popular play, which was symbolic of the paradise story, was staged on December 24th (the religious feast day of Adam and Eve) . Two more symbolic connections with the mushroom are the candles and cookies that were also hung on the tree (candles = Christ; cookies = wafers of the Christian sacrament). This ornament is of particular interest because of its association with the fruit of the tree of knowledge and the Amanita muscaria. This indicates that there have always been people "In the Know" from time to time. According to Apocryphal texts and other older ones, the "Fruit of the Tree of Life" and the more recently added "Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge" were originally one in the same.
So, why do people bring Pine trees
into their houses at the Winter Solstice, placing brightly colored (Red
and White) packages under their boughs, as gifts to show their love for
each other and as representations o the love of God and the gift of his
Figure 6. The Christmas Tree
All over the world, people bring Coniferous s into their houses and place brightly colored packages underneath them. In Nature, this is where you will find the Amanita muscaria (under coniferous trees). The actual mushroom "plant" is the underground "mycelium" or "mycorrhizae", which is directly attached to the tree roots; the mushroom itself is only the fruit-body of the mycelium. The mushroom is literally the Fruit of the Tree. They grow in a mycorrhizal (not parasitic) relationship with the tree. Many people follow the tradition/custom of bringing a tree into the home and putting presents under it, yet have absolutely no idea why. Even people that think they know, usually have no knowledge of these mushroom connections. The true symbolic meaning transcends dogmatic etymological and historical evidence, by revealing itself in the totally obvious iconography and historically associated myths and traditions.
Figure 7. Saint Nicholas
Saint Nicholas, known as the "Patron Saint of Children" (among other things), is the most revered saint in Russia, second only to the apostles. He is the Russian Orthodox Church's supplanter to the native people's highly respected local Shaman. A Shaman is a holy man that is well acquainted with a form of spirituality that incorporates plant entheogens which facilitate the NDE (Near Death Experience), or "out of body" experience. Saint Nicholas may not have been a shaman, yet the symbolism on, and coloring of his robes could lend to speculation. The equilateral-circumscribed-cross is an ancient symbol for Christianity AND the Holy Grail, it is another very obvious mushroom symbol.
The ancient shamanic use of Amanita
muscaria in Siberia is well documented. Despite governmental oppression
against its use, there are still many who refuse to accept the authorized
state religion, and continue the shamanic traditions in secret. Just as
the Siberian shaman (commonly dressing in red and white) would enter
through the opening in the roof of a home where a ritual was to be done,
Santa Claus also arrives on the roof and enters through the chimney. Just
as the shamans would gather the mushrooms in bags which they would bring
with them when performing a ceremony, Santa Claus also (on the Holy Day)
brings presents in a bag. The Santa Claus we see today evolved from
traditions developed in Germany. It is fairly common knowledge that the
Weihnachtsmann (St. Nick) was an amalgamation of older Germanic/Norse gods
such as Thor, Donner, Odin and Wotan. What's missing here is just as Santa
flies through the skies in his sleigh, Odin (as well as the rest) rode
through the sky in his chariot, which is depicted in the stars by "The Big
Dipper". The Big Dipper is the chariot of Odin & Wotan, Thor, King
Arthur, and even Osiris (of Egypt). The chariot that circles the North
Star in a 24 hour period is thus also known as the sleigh of Santa Claus
because it circles his mythological home, the North Pole. It is no
surprise that Nordic/Germanic gods have connection to mushrooms in their
mythology. As Thor throws his mushroom-shaped hammer to the ground, mighty
thunders and lightning cracks cause the real mushroom(s) to appear. As the
horses pulling Odin through the sky in his chariot become over-exerted,
their blood-mingled spit falls to the ground and causes the Amanita
mushrooms to grow at those exact points. The Osiris mythology has even
more to add to this. To the Egyptians; South was up (North). Osiris was
the lord of the underworld, the South, (South=down) which is why he
circles the sky in the furthest possible lower (southern) area. Not only
did Osiris ride the sky in a chariot, but after his death Isis found that
an evergreen (Cedar) had grown overnight from a dead stump to full-sized
(this also relates to the Djed pillar); which was understood as a sign of
Osiris' rebirth and immortality. Interestingly, the traditional birth of
Osiris is the 25th of December. The 25th of December was also celebrated
annually by putting presents around the Cedar tree. This tradition is at
least five thousand years old. The birth of Horus to the
goddess-virgin-mother, Isis, is perhaps the eldest representation of the
goddess/son mythology, yet it is impossible to know this or the real age
of the Astro-theological-Virgo-giving-birth-to-the-child/god/star
mythology for sure. However it is the oldest source I have found; it is
Figure 8. A sacred meal setting and service
This place setting and service was contributed by a very Laurence Stickney, he has been always an inspiration to me. It is certainly a real fine example of what a truly enlightened Christmas meal is all about. You don't have to read very far into this symbolism to realize what the table is saying about dinner. The idea of a "Sacred Meal" is incorporated into many ancient traditions that also celebrated the birth of the God on December 25th. The Sun, as it reaches the winter Solstice, ends its course across the heavens and appears to stop for 3 days, then it begins anew its trek across the heavens towards the Northern hemisphere. This 3 day "stoppage" was mythologized as the death of the Sun of God on the cross of the celestial 4 points, and after the 3 day waiting period as it began another precession across the sky, it was thought to return to life. Later mythologies transfer the death on the cross to a hanging on wood, and the 3 day death to the Son (Sun) being locked inside a tomb. The fact that the mushrooms must be dried before consumption is another euphemism of the god needing to die, or sacrifice himself, to save mankind through atonement (at-one-ment).
"THE HOLY GRAIL" Mushroom symbology
in popular myth.
Figure 9. The Holy Grail
Amanita muscaria, long associated with the "Flesh of the God" in religious sacraments, was and is the true Holy Grail. The Grail cup, holding the blood of the god, is an obvious analogy for the shape of the fully-grown specimen and its juices. Note the look of the fully grown specimen. The imagery of a cup or fountain are two of the more pronounced symbols used to keep the understanding of the true nature of the sacrament a secret from everyone but the "Elite". In its infant (button) state, the muscaria resembles a small white stone. The pulling of the sword from the stone (a symbol of wielding the power), is another Arthurian legend connecting the mushroom to the myth. The quest for the Grail itself is the quest for the knowledge of the mushroom. The Parcival myth depicts paths (traditions), which are to be explored (but not adhered to), in order to complete the quest. This quest is described in the myths as a journey into the forest (the world) and finding paths (systems) which one may follow, for a time, but ultimately one must blaze his/her own trail in order to truly reach the final goal, the Holy Grail (the discovery and usage of the mushroom).
The search for the Holy Grail is a mythology that has become, through adaptation, a part of the story of the Crucifixion. Some of the stories incorporate a cup which was used to catch some of the flowing blood of Jesus as he died on the cross. This cup, like many other relics, was thereby thought to possess magical powers. Historically, the mushroom has been the container for the juice of the "elixir of immortality", or the "blood of God", in many myths. The final shape of the muscaria, with its inverted cap, is the reason that the cup/fountain/grail symbology is used in the stories. King Arthur, as a child, gained his rightful place as King by pulling the sword from the stone. This is symbolic for wielding the power of the mushroom. The stone is a metaphor for the mushroom, and pulling the sword from it is symbolic of being able to crack the code and possess the power of the magical plant. After Arthur took ill (in his later years) he was told that he must seek and find the Holy Grail to renew his strength and re-acquire his power.
"Christianity" The popular western
Figure 10. The Christian MANNAS revealed
John Marco Allegro, one of the worlds leading philologists, put his neck on the line when he wrote his book, "The Sacred Mushroom And The Cross", which made numerous connections from sacred doctrinal enigmas and sacraments to the Amanita muscaria. He fearlessly attempted to expose the reality of the mushroom symbolism throughout the Bible, Apocryphal writings, and The Dead Sea Scrolls. He was fully aware of the criticism his book would draw, yet as a true scholar, knowing the importance of the information, he put self aside for the good of all. Most criticism surrounding Allegro is a remnant of the fundamentalist bashing he took for exposing the Jesus Myth. Jesus IS the mushroom Anthropomorphized just like Santa, Mithra, Chrishna, Rudra etc.
Allegro linguistically linked the SOMA
(Greek=Body), the Manna (Sumerian = Mushroom), (of which there are two
kinds), the names Jesus, James, and John, the Fruit of the tree of
Knowledge, and the symbol of the cross, to the Amanita muscaria, by
stating that all of these names and terms (and others) were synonyms and
wordplay for the hidden identity of the mushroom. Needless to say, he had
the religious scholars doing flips. The biblical apologists instantly
jumped on the bandwagon of attempting to disprove anything he said.
Although he did stretch the boundaries (at least twice) of some
established scholarship, the proof is in the pudding (so to speak) and
most of his associations are beyond repute. Besides it is apparent to me
that anyone who is afraid to challenge established authority and
scholarship would not produce or expose most of the things which I find of
value. Love him or hate him, he pioneered the field wherein most scholars
and lay-people alike are afraid to even think about stepping in.
Figure 11. The Fruit of The Tree
This 13th Century Fresco from France shows the Amanita muscaria as the "fruit" (of the Tree) of the "knowledge of Good and Evil". Adam and Eve had their eyes opened. The Gods looked down and said "Behold, they have become as one of us". Contemporary Scholars and researchers have since uncovered many such representations. The Mushroom as the Fruit of the tree is actually pretty common among esoteric circles.
The knowledge of good and evil seems a
strange thing to condemn someone for, unless the Gods wanted to dictate
what was right and wrong, rather than have them know the difference for
themselves. Imposing their will (and law) upon mankind is not so easy when
people can think for themselves, especially if it becomes obvious that
what you are being told is right and/or wrong is in direct opposition to
what actually seems to be good and bad (The BIG Knowledge).
Figure 12. The Last Supper (The sacramental ingestion of the body of God)
The concept of the literal ingestion of the body of God is highly downplayed by religious scholars of today. The body (soma) being a fleshy Mushroom is much more palatable than trying to stomach cannibalism or the transformation of ordinary substances.
Many questions should be asked about
this cosmopolitan idea of the "Sacramental Substance". Unfortunately, the
religious experts shun the notion, insisting that the entire idea is
nothing more than symbolic. A symbol points at something else, not usually
at another symbology. The Catholic church, in the early 1100's, decided to
have the final word on this subject by establishing (under Emperor/Pope
Innocent III) the "Doctrine of Trans-Substantiation". This it whereby, the
Priests, by their assumed holy power, claim to be able to say some magical
words, and turn ordinary bread into the literal "Body of God". This event
is one of the biggest evil deceptions of all time, is an undermining of
the basic esoteric aspects of the religion, and is, arguably, the most
horrible and damning event to ever happen to Christendom, and as such the
entire human race. Jesus clearly describes the Manna that he calls his
body in the book of John. Repeatedly describing the "Thing/Manna" as a
substance hidden from the world, but revealed to his disciples.
Understanding the last supper story becomes as simplistic as it gets, if
you know how to decipher the event. Adamantly; Jesus says, "Take and eat,
This is my Body". This is the TRANSFORMATIONAL and MAGNIFICENT event. By
intentional misrepresentation (by self appointed or politically correct
AUTHORITIES) it has been stripped down to rhetorical run around and
ridiculous dogmatic interpretation by enthusiastic religious
Figure 13. Manna in the Ark of the Covenant
Moses built this elaborate device to carry the Manna through the wilderness. To look inside the ark was punishable by death. The box itself is of little import, or spiritual value. What IS important, is what was INSIDE the ark. The Long and tedious search for this artifact, shows either a complete missing-of-the-point, or a deliberate mis-direction of attention.
According to the Bible there are TWO
Mannas, the one the Israelites ate in the desert, and the "Hidden Manna"
alluded to within the book of Revelation.
Figure 14. The Fountain of Living Waters
The God of the Bible says "I am the Fountain of Living Waters". If we are to understand this statement on a level of literal translation, then this means alive, made of water, and in the similitude of a fountain. This describes a mushroom. The Waters of life is an ancient term linked to the living waters, and the Waters of Immortality. The waters one drinks to receive the gift of immortality and transcendence. Soma, and Amrta (Hindu/Buddhist), are also considered the waters of life. The attributes of which bestowed enlightenment. The churning-of-the-milky- ocean is to (metaphorically) produce this substance. The waters of life are also synonymous with the blood of the god in the sacramental analysis.
Jesus was the revealer of the
"Fountain of living waters", as in Rev. 21-6 he will give those who are
athirst the living waters. Living waters, blood, manna, flesh, and all
this "stuff" is the one and same thing represented in different ways. All
represent eating and drinking of a phenomenal substance that produces
multi-dimensionality (door), great spiritual learning, and communion, with
God being inside of you. While the popular bread (or cracker) and water
(or wine) do go inside the body, they certainly lack the substantive
qualities which the action of ingesting is supposed to induce. In my
opinion, the magical act of "Trans-Substantiation" has no merit. The
statement that Jesus makes "Unless you eat and drink you have no life in
you" would seem to condemn the replacement of whatever the real thing is
with a placebo (substitute).
Figure 15. Jesus with a mushroom cap. Aura?
A common depiction of enlightenment is this mushroom behind the head of one who is a knower, often thought to be some type of glowing aura. This may be symbolic for the spiritual glow one has after the change experienced by the heavenly gift of the Holy Ghost. Many artworks show the difference between those who have "Tasted of the heavenly Gift" and those who have not. This is depicted by whether one has this glow, or does not. Often resembling the underside of a mushroom cap (gills extending outward) sometimes it is symbolized with red with white spots.
I bring this line of thinking up
because it has been lingering in the back of my mind for many years.
Perhaps there is a loss in translation that would make this less dire. But
if we are to understand this literally, it is saying that something
happens to you when you eat this. Perhaps a spiritual change that somehow
saves one from the second death. This has always made me wonder just how
important it really is for people to eat this. You can see how, once the
suspension of dis-belief has been achieved, there is a very deep desire to
share this information with others. Much in the same manner that a
fundamentalist Christian feels a need to save the rest of the world from
hell by delivering the message of their God to those in danger of death by
disbelief. The difference being, the substance that established religion
is feeding their flock does not profit. Simple bread, even after magical
supposed transformation, simply does not produce the effects that are
really being prescribed by these texts. This just makes it seem all that
much more important. And it also brings into question the idea that those
who convince themselves that they truly feel something after eating the
priest-blessed bread and water, or whatever, may be creating an illusion
that is eventually (although they think it wonderful) something that is
damaging to them beyond comprehension.
Figure 16. Jesus in a TUB of Transfiguration
This 15th Century Fresco shows Jesus with cross in a TUB that looks remarkably similar to the TUB in the central chamber in the Great Pyramid at Gizeh (This will be explored later). This shows both baptisms. 1) The baptism by water (TUB) and 2) The second by fire (Cross). The cross being a symbol for the mushroom. There are after all TWO Baptisms. The First is baptism by water. The second is baptism by FIRE. This is the transformational baptism. The death (journey to the heavens) and the rebirth experience of the God. The mushroom has a long association (largely due to its color) with fire. High on the mountain-top (where the mushrooms grow) Moses conversed with the God in the "Burning Bush".
Christianity was the first religion that I studied in depth after finding out about the mushroom. This was due to my heritage and upbringing. After four years (of knowing) I finally had my first experience. As you can see, from what I understood, I fully expected to see the throne of God and Jesus, the hierarchy of angels, and the whole works. But when I opened the door, ate the flesh/bread, and drank of the waters of life, I found much much more. There was no Jesus (so to speak) there to greet me. People have the supposition that "as they believe, so shall it be". The more proper way (to me) to look at it is this: "So as you believe, you can count on being wrong". Because not only is life NOT as easy as believing in ANY God, or anything, it is a continual learning process that seems to have no end, and therefore, becoming stagnant, as pertaining to spiritual learning, is a dangerous trap for those who think they have found the one true thing they need to know in life. The world is consumed by the huge beast/spirit of deception (remember that one? The one that everyone inside their minds believes could not possibly have gotten them). Simply believing anything is not the key to salvation. At best it would surely be thought of as "The easy way out". Neither is finding the mushroom and going in through the door, and being taught, one, two, or a hundred times going to ever end your quest for knowledge and understanding. Think about it this way, even a God must be able to evolve or life would become boring. The first thing you learn is there is no easy way out, that is if you are interested in anything beyond simply being saved (not dying the spiritual death). There are many levels of evolution, spiritual as well as physical. When you open the door, and look inside, you can see these evolutionary levels, and that they are accessible, but they require certain understandings. You see them, and visit them, and know that they are there, but due to the conditioning that has been done to you in life, you realize that you must dump allot of baggage to evolve into those levels. It is a very humbling experience indeed. Much of that baggage that must be left behind originates in the belief systems that are taught to us lowly humans by the religions on this planet. The Political/Religious organizations that alter the truth to fit their societal model, have polluted it, and thereby destroyed it. This goes beyond these systems of belief simply being a hindrance to spiritual evolution. These have become the great beasts that drag souls to destruction, by replacing truth with false morals and dogma. The Beast is camouflaged as the truth, in an a extremely diabolical and complex web. A trap, of which ESCAPE may be that very thing which human existence is really all about. Finding the way out. Each new truth dashing a dogma to the rocks. Each new revelation opening up (making accessible) another sphere/level of spiritual evolution.
