.Be Honest, is your Psychedelic Use Purely "Sacred"?

.

With the growing acknowledgement of the use of psychedelics for medical, therapeutic or sacred uses, it may feel easier to “come out” about your personal use of these substances.

But if you’ve ever used these drugs outside of those contexts (yes and sorry, this includes at Burning Man), then you should probably pause a bit before going forward.

Are you ready to really, fully come out about your psychedelics use?

When you’re thinking about coming out about your psychedelics (or other drug!) use, don’t tell half the story. By all means, do hold up the incredible promise of psychedelics as healing agents, as therapies, as tools for an emotional re-boot. But do your best not to leave out the other side. If you’re going to come out, come out all the way.

The Daily Mail quotes organizers of a regular Berlin club night called “Lucid”. They boast: ‘We have local artisans and culinary adventurers serving various high vibe medicines such as raw Cacao, super-food smoothies, herbal concoctions, vegan cuisine and much more.’

Anyone credulous enough to accept that this practice is about to become the new Molly probably deserves to try it out for themselves... :-)

 .

.

Muhammad Ali was an inspiration to many, and much more than just at a fighting level.  It is true he was a boxer, a great boxer, but did you know he was also a human rights advocate?

Did you know Ali refused to participate in the Vietnam war even after being menaced of jail time and destruction of his career?

Here are some of the most inspirational quotes from Ali, read on for more:

  • He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
  • “Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.”
  • “What you’re thinking is what you’re becoming.”
