"Some say it's a spiritual awakening while others say it's just a trip..this documentary explores the truth"
Have you heard of Ayahusca? DMT? Well, if you didn't know Ayahuasca is a psychedelic tea that supposedly enlightens one's level of consciousness.
In tonight's review, we'll share our opinions and thoughts on Meech's documentary, as well as, propose our own questions about mind exploration. What is the Vine Of The Soul? Are they just getting high? Who should watch this?
Vine Of The Soul?
Well, that's just a name given to Ayahuasca by those that have consumed the herbal intoxicant. Shaman and healers of all sorts have been using this substance freely for years within the Amazon and other uncharted areas, bending the waves of time. It seems man has always had the urge to push the limits not only with his body, but his mind. However, sometimes the doors one opens with their mind...cannot be closed.
Now, the basics of the tea seem pretty simple, by Meech's documentary. One just merely has to consume the substance and off you go becoming one with the earth, but there seems to be a little more to it than that. The people featured in the documentary rave about a spiritual awakening and an understanding of what little they know in the world.
So Are They Just Really High?
We definitely see how it could seem like that, but there's a little methodology to it. Now we are not experts on Ayahuasca by any means, but a few of us know about defying the laws of gravity..lol The biggest difference we notice with this tea, in the documentary of course, is that there is always a shaman present.
These people are not just chuggin this mystery snapple without the proper rituals in place. They are opening their minds for that feeling of collective energy within the room as their souls transcend to a higher plane. Sounds a lot like church doesn't it? Well, it seems some see it as such.
And That's Just What She Said
Oh, who's she? That's just Dr. Kirsten Smith, N.D sitting in the tent getting her mind blowin with the rest of the explorers. It's wild because here she is a doctor in western culture exploring unconventional herbs for medicinal purposes. We're sure that's what she put on her papers at least anyway..lol But she's not the only traveler that the documentary follows.
There's also "Rob The Accountant". Now, Rob is someone whose tripped a dozen or so times for recreational purposes, but never really achieved that "Altered State" of consciousness. His purposes for being in the Amazon have something to do with finding himself and gaining insight about the entire world.
And those are just two of the explorers within this Vine Of The Soul that runs just shy of an hour.
Our Thoughts After Viewing...
Mental exploration will always be a meal on the table because people will never stop pushing the limits. Meech's documentary is but one of many explorations currently going on around this great big world. Just think, even your next door neighbor could be doing a little exploring of their own, but unless you hear chanting it's probably just weed. *_*
The mind is a terrible thing to waste, so we as people, explore it. It won't always be with herbs, it may even be with sleep deprivation, high temperatures or something as simple as fasting. Each on of these methods is geared to achieve an "Altered State" if you will, in the pursuit of answering the eternal question. What's the meaning of life... What do you think?
