Re: Why does smoking marijuana open up our senses so fully?

sure...if we replace the word "drugs" with "plants" then it may feel more comfy... plants provide us food, oxygen, medicine, and vitamin/mineral supplements...even now so called bio-fuel why couldn't they provide us a peek over the fence, so to speak :lol: there's an excellent article on this that I...

Re: Why does smoking marijuana open up our senses so fully?

there are receptors in our brains that act as limiters, governors if you will. Natural psychoactive plants such as pot, salvia divinorum, magic mushrooms, etc. allow more information in. Some believe that in ancient times these substances were big contributors to the original ideas that started the ...

Re: Christ and prayer question

it feels good to pray for myself, for others, for awakening, for help, for acceptance in much the same way that it feels good to communicate with you, only better. :) It isn't a philisophical exercise when it's occuring, it comes very naturally, there's no big head with a white beard looking down at...

Re: Turning Off Your Head and Getting Happy-Tolle Interview

Thank you James... The point that I was making is well explained by the two members who posted their departure this morning.

Re: Turning Off Your Head and Getting Happy-Tolle Interview

Re: Stop and Breathe Everyone

It's kind of funny but I have written a half dozen or so posts in the last couple of days and then ended up deleting them. All the talk about bashing ET and the "take a deep breath" stuff has made me aware of how many folks were uncomfortable with recent threads and posts. When people object to what...

Re: Barack Obama - A Leader for the Aquarian Age

I watched an hour long program on BBC2 last night about Obama. I am not easily taken in by anyone, least of all politicians, but the more I see of Obama the more I sense what an impressive figure he is. One of the things I like particularly is a sense of sadness that seems to flow from his heart th...
