Bad trip leads to enlightenment?

Post by ifunkygroove » Wed Apr 11, 2018 4:15 pm

I had an accidental overdose of THC (marijuana) yesterday that gave me a miserable anxiety attack and it reminded me of the circumstance Eckhart speaks of in The Power of Now where he broke away from his ego. I was tempted to fight through the intense suffering of this anxiety attack in hopes of enlightenment on the other side. I had a feeling this isn't the way, so I took anti-anxiety meds to relieve my anxiety attack. But the question remains: does a 'bad trip' or anxiety attack brought on by LSD or marijuana a way to reach enlightenment?
