What are your personal views on entheogenic drug use?
For example: marijuana, mescaline, DMT, etc
Its not a question about the illegality (as many of these substances can be found in legal alternatives) – but the moral, ethical, spiritual and religious consequences?
(An entheogen is a drug used for religious or spiritual purposes – for things such as enlightenment, spiritual exploration, becoming close to god, seeing what is believed to already be there, etc.)
Please, I don’t want an atheist rant about how god/spirits/etc aren’t real. I know how you feel, that wasn’t the question I asked.
I ask because entheogens can be used as a direct link to the spiritual world – there is no interference by the ego and the spirit can be released in a relatively safe way to be able to return home – thus concreting beliefs with an actual unadulterated spiritual experience.
(As theorized by the majority of entheogen users and a number of scientists)
