The vine the truck turns into is the Ayahuasca Plant, which is said to have healing properties, I've read extensively, watched documentaries and have even thought I've found the perfect place where I might be interested in experiencing it of myself... but alas - I'm not fond of vomiting & apparently it is part of the process, this does not mean I've ruled it out completely I am a firm believer in "when the time is right.."
I believe these natural substances are here to help. Some like cannabis - include helping the body with pain, involuntary movement, PTSD and much more, mushrooms appear to help with issues of the mind sometimes getting to the core of a problem in minutes - where otherwise - other ways have taken years to process & Ayahuasca apparently does the same - it helps heal the mind. Now, I know many who have tired it - just since the past four years it seems to be something more are exploring- not to get HIGH but to HEAL.
Once you start to learn about these plants your eyes open. They open before you even experience them- and the first way they open is you start to ask yourself:
Why have we put people in jail for growing & enjoying nature?
WHO decided what plants God gave us are for us to use and not to use?
Then you try some of these natural medicines- and your eyes open wider when you understand how they work, when you don't die, your brain does not fry', you realize the extent of the lies & control passed on from generations.. & hopefully you become awake & realize how we have hurt each other, other family members, others in society because we have judged them as "hippies & stoners" when they have actually been lovers & healers. I've yet to read about people who use Ayahuasca who've turned violent ...
I do not understand why these options are not available yet- proven deadly medications are on the increase still. I do understand actually - $$$$$$$$$$$ - I do no understand why we allow it to continue. The sun the moon & the truth..
Until all drugs in Canada become legal we will still be going in the wrong direction.
Open your eyes.
The elephant was painted with love as always the eyes resemble the centre of the actual vine - they make jewelry from it. The green & background one moment appear bold the next they disappear when you get lost in the detail of this majestic, wise beast.
Someone has expressed interest in it with a couple of other pieces.. I'll sleep on it and then give my price - if they decline, it will look awesome hanging in the gazebo!
