i was just wondering what are the thoughts regarding drugs? pot, lsd, ecstasy, more specifically psychoactives do they somehow enhance our connection with what around us, or awaken pathways in the brain or the body, or are they tools which we can use to develop or understand ourselves or the universe? when ive experimented i've felt a greater connection or enhancement of my understanding, sometimes of myself, sometimes of the world, sometimes both and i feel that there is much more we could learn if we were to explore this area. but i've also read that drugs can limit ones awareness. what is everyone elses experiences or thoughts?

There are things you just don't need to know yet because you are not ready. Start a thread asking people what they would do given all the power in the world. That's not what I experinced or was looking for but that's kind of personal so we will just have to go with something random here.

My comments relate to the fact that I am aware. I have never needed artificial stimulus. I got to where I got purely by thought and meditation. No crackpot dry fasting, no drugs, just me, my mind and the cosmos.

My comment was just: "Well good for you!"
