Think about religion, what religion is, what it means to people, what it means to the world, to society. Think about any religion, Christianity is a good example. Now check this shit out:
What if attaining this new level of spirituality everyone wants isn’t done by traditional means. I’m talking about actually feeling a divine presence, like you’re existing on a holy plane. Things like going to church, reading the Bible, praising God(s), following rules like not eating children on Fridays or doing three laps around a sheep for your messiah - what if that’s not it. What if all these people having life changing experiences off of things like shrooms or other organic highs actually have it right.
Follow me here:
Hallucinogens (like organic psilocyben) and Cannabinoids and other substances allow your brain to work in new ways that your conscious mind simply wouldn’t allow. You have fantastic ideas and experiences, fictional or not. The way you think and feel is intense, and some would say your more ‘primal’ self. This substance growing from your respective God’s Earth is allowing you to have this.
Now think about this:
Many religions preach that our human race is damned to an earthly existence (that whole garden of Eden, talking snake, wtf you ate the apple! thing) and that our connection to our God(s) is/are severed to a certain degree and getting close to God(s)/attaining a more divine existence is done through all that religious do-as-I-say junk. What if it’s finding a way to free your mind in a way that allows these experiences (even things like dreams/lucid dreams, meditation *yay Buddhism/Daoism*) that gives you that actual physical holy existence beyond our earthly selves.
Now it sounds like I’m completely denouncing religion, but I’m not. It’s important to have a form of dialogue and an actual following to even have a religion in place, church and all that is good. But those who are looking for this:
That just want the dick of God to knock them unconscious in a holy whirlwind of the Holy Ghost and chunky Jesus bits, can find such a thing in a way that your God may have actually intended (See cult-like rituals involving psychedelics/hallucinogens/orgies etc. etc. in the name of religions).
Want proof? Think of all your real pothead friends, especially the Rastafarian ones (Yes I realize not all Rastafari use marijuana, I’m drawing parallels, shut your face). How many of them are mean spirited people? None. How many of them (however slow and sometimes unreliable) live in a way that is conscious of the people around them and their well-being? Most if not all. How awesome is being high? For the majority, pretty fuckin’ sweet.
More proof? Buddhist monks. I don’t need to say shit about them. They are the most kind, universally loving, Godly people you will ever meet. Research it, it’s the shiznit.
All the crazy trips people have on shrooms and psychedelics and all that shit where they leave their bodies and fly through different planes of existence and transcend their earthly shells and GUYS CHECK THIS:
You might be thinking to yourself “But what about all those bad trips where people see demons and hide in their closets and freak the fuck out” to you I say don’t swear, that’s a no-no. But I also say what if that’s a sign that an evil spirit or something of a stain on your soul is keeping you from having a true holy experience and there’s something in your lifestyle you should change to become more pure.
I just don’t know guys. I’m high as fuck.
