what are the predominant means of altering consciousness in our culture?

The members of many cultures seek altered states of consciousness as pathways to enlightenment and personal power. What are the predominant means of altering consciousness in our culture? Are any of them potential pathways for personal growth?

  1. Western culture only offers means of altering your consciousness for the worse, through illegal or legal drugs, abusive advertising and brainwashing entertainment. The politicians and rich people in charge do not want us to improve our understanding of the world and our personal power. Wouldn’t that make us harder to control?

  2. Sadly the answer is escapism in its various forms such as drugs, alcohol, and other mindless diversions (TV comes to mind).

  3. The only way to seriously alter ones consciousness is through love. All the mind trips in the world will never take you to the place you really want to be.
