imagine if pot smokers built your car ,,,,
for me i sleep much better and awake refreshed
if i smoke with friends i can not shut up
if i smoke i need to crap within minutes
so i think it effects everyone one in a different way
I know the Rastafarian movement believes in using it to meditate and pray.
It is very important to them it is considered their religion to carry it on their person at all times
for this reason. I also think it can help people who can not sit still or listen or concentrate. It depends on the person.
I believe it is a God given herb to be used but not abused.
In Peru the Shamans us ayahuasca. In some places it's Kava Kava.
I think it is an individual decision for spiritual purposes because you know yourself. But should never be offered to someone else unless it is of their own desire.
But I have heard it really helps a lot of people meditate and pray.
hi Colton......smoking cannabis is a very personal experience............personally i find it both stimulating.... relaxing and a tonic for our times............moderation is the key to enjoying the herb supberb......others that find it dulling or takes them out of the spiritual ''feel" or continue to feel negative emotions should at should at least give it a break for awhile....and see how they feel....... before making a decision one way or other......there are no rules....just observe to find out for oneself.........and ones decision does not have to be final.........it may very well change again Bill (ommi).......OM..
I once heard a story that the spirit energy of the marijuana plant desires the relationship with the human because it has it's own spiritual experience by living through ours. I always thought that was a neat concept. I too struggle with my thoughts on this subject. I feel that being high while meditating might seem like it enhances your sessions but in ways it "flavors" the experience in a set of boundaries set by the plant's influence. This is somewhat distracting from the pure thrill of prana energy, which might be purer sans mary jane. I'm still not sure :S
does food diminish my meditation experience?.........only if i consume too much or too little.... same for the experience of consuming cannabis.....too much or too little can have a detrimental effect on the mind.......but a moderate amount( which each person has to determine for themselves) can definately nourish the mind.....but its not everyones ''cup of tea''............if we continue to meditate the inner voice will letus know whether or not to continue to consume..........in the meantime...........i enjoy..........OM
