Many people have taken ibogaine because they felt stuck in their spiritual practice.
Ibogaine can be helpful in getting unstuck. Powerful psychedelics can temporarily shatter the ego and give someone a glimpse of Being (otherwise known as God, the Tao, Nirvana, Spirit, etc). Being is confusing for many spiritual aspirants because it is not a “thing”; it is the context within which all things arise. This means that it cannot be experienced, because all experiences occur within Being. Since Being is so obvious, most spiritual practitioners overlook it because they are too busy seeking. Ibogaine can temporarily shatter the mind’s capacity to seek, forcing you to look at what is already present. It is there, in the last place you look, that you finally get a taste of unity with Being. This taste may last only a few moments, or it may last many months, but its effect is powerful. Once you truly know that freedom from ego is possible, the spiritual practice progresses much faster.
