Dick, if I may, can you ask the differences that you notice, and how that changes the way you interact and react to the machinations of real world business as usual and the prevailing dourness that seems to accompany it so often...
A wonderfully thought-provoking question. If I understand what you’re asking - and I can only really answer specific and limited to perceived changes in my personality - a tendency to excitability has become transformed into a far more calm and measured persona; far more mindful of the influences I choose to permit upon psyche (for example, far less TV, much more reading); impatience transformed into patience; far more conscientious consideration in my interactions with my family, friends, colleagues and strangers. The positive influences here being from changes resulting from my DMT experiences and also from my wife and from passages read in books that have lodged in my mind - the merit of which the DMT experiences seem to have amplified to my benefit.
I still feel it’s a tough question!
I guess I’m making the best of what I’ve got? Hang on! There was one particular DMT experience in the garden, several years ago. And whilst it wasn’t a particular remarkable experience, relative to other experiences, the outcome of that experience was transformational in that it imbued within me an unchanging certainty that the very best within mankind is positivity in the face all adversity. Since then, I haven’t had one single day in the doldrums.
