Is Marijuana a capable tool for introspection and/or meditation? This is of course assuming that the user isn’t an addict to the drug or abusing it.
Furthermore would the conclusion it leads to be able to be identified as valid or mere drug induced delusions?
If yes or no does it differ in the use of all or any drugs into arriving at subjective truths?
Are any aids such as relaxing music, binaural beats, or even incense not valid as tools as well?
Absolutely capable assuming you are not referring to transcendental meditation. If the conclusion stands firm after you have munched out, then it is valid. Cannabis is one of the few plants indigenous to all climates and has been used in rituals throughout the world for ages. It is also very useful for anger management, depression and many other things. Marijuana addiction is a lie perpetrated by government officials funding their own interests. The Bible states that all herbs were created for the benefit of mankind. What do you think was burned in the temples?God bless.
most people, when learning to meditate rely on something (even an imaginary “point”) to focus on . . . things that release endorphins make that type of focus very difficult, and that would work against you.
Leary tried it with hallucinogen’s but eventually realized that there is a difference between “realization” and meditation. The goal of meditation is not to “discover” subjective truths, but to realize them . . . .
the easiest way to begin is to focus merely on one’s breathing.
