Re: Psychodelics [sic] and Buddhism: Lion Roar article and Brad Warner's response + a few thoughts

"It's" Psych e delics... (sp.). But the misspelling in the subject-line is a nice warning! Just a comment: Drug use is not a Yoga . Buddhist practice largely depends on a Yogic approach and continuance. It depends on thousands of hours of practice, not on micrograms or milligrams of this-or-that. O...

Very interesting responses, Folks, and thank you for sharing your story, narwhal, as a fellow rider, it hit just a bit deeper, hope you're OK now. Pablo, when you say 'it's not Zen', it rings of Spiritual Bypassing for me, are you familiar with the term? One of the teachers I've had the privilege t...

Re: Psychodelics and Buddhism: Lion Roar article and Brad Warner's response + a few thoughts

I would not use as harsh language as he does but I agree with the jist of it. :) Sure, psychedelics can change your state of mind, but what they change it to is pretty much a crap shoot.

From "I am That" chapter 86 M: No doubt, a drug that can affect your brain can also affect your mind, and give you all the strange experiences promised. But what are all the drugs compared to the drug that gave you this most unusual experience of being born and living in sorrow and fear, in search o...

'Way to do it, gifting all those guitars so that musicians and their listeners (and the craftsmen who handmade those instruments) could benefit. An unplayed guitar is like a sin.

I did notice dreamless sleep lately after weeks of quantum fun, dammit nobody else is very playful at night here.
Any suggestions?
