Would he get the newest iPhone? Ferrari? Gold Rolex? Hell yes!
He's Jesus! & deserves the finest this life has to offer - lol perhaps.. BUT true gifts I believe would be the gift of knowledge - represented by a book (for one) -not an iPhone thats going to distract him every 3 seconds and dumb him down . ALL the bling are just things. Should the 3 wise men arrive this evening in 2018 .. I believe they would bring gifts that have been provided by God himself- natural Medicine from cannabis for peace & healing to mushrooms (psilocybin) and LSD, gifts to open the mind to experience ALL that life offers. Was blind but now I see...
In my own experience, I attribute my drug experience in direct correlation with widening my compassion towards the rest of the world & becoming a more forgiving individual myself & thinking individual... caring. Before I would simply be angry - rarely considering the 'other sides opinion, if anything 'now' I try to consider the other side' first.. If that isn't reason enough I don't know what is.
I've just watched a documentary called the Psychedelic Pioneers:
The story of the psychedelic pioneers is part leading-edge medical research and part utopian idealism. Three gifted psychiatrists, in combination with an extraordinarily power drug, resulted in one of the most fascinating and controversial periods in Canadian history. Before LSD burst on the scene as fuel for wild psychedelic trips, it had an amazing, yet little-known history. A surprising part of that history was written in a remote corner of the Canadian prairies. Over a span of fifteen years, from when the drug was first administered in 1952 until it was banned and made illegal in 1967, the use of LSD ranged from leading-edge psychiatric research into schizophrenia and alcoholism to volunteer testing on the general public. As word of LSD’s amazing properties began to seep out of the laboratory, artists and intellectuals such as writer Aldous Huxley, filmmaker Paul Saltzman, architect Kyo Izumin and painter Ted Godwin began to experiment and travel to Saskatchewan to have their first experiences with LSD. The Psychedelic Pioneers takes us through the eyes of the three lead doctors involved in the LSD Saskatchewan Project.
I had no idea the documentary would be about a hospital in SASK. Canada- the the 'instruction manual on how to use them safely for Dr.s & patients(still used today) was developed by a Canadian. BACK THEN they KNEW it was helping. Something occurred to me while watching this.. this TN, this condition that is unbelievable to live with nicknamed the 'suicide disease' that I have lived with for over 7 years (and has consumed me to say the least most days in crippling pain).. yes, I have considered death being a better option some days... because I think - I have no other options.. but WE DO.
What does it say about a Country that will allow you do discuss legal assisted death for pain before it will allow you to TRY LDS for pain?
You might be in a situation where you don't even consider such things... thank God.
I AM done suffering when I KNOW there are options & this new year I will be looking into ALL of them. I am a 54 year old woman, this is not about getting high, I just want to be able to function, to run my house socialize with family, enjoy time with dogs, work in my garden & continue my painting.. thats' it. I just want a quality of fucking life - where I am not in agonizing pain and constant fear from a condition that has me thinking I'm going to die several times a day- is that too much to ask? I think not. Will some judge me for it- yes of course.. will they be educated on the subject - probably not.
My son laughs when I tell him God has persuaded me - 'Have No Fear' as we go into this new year! & I DO not... quite the opposite, the 'strength I feel more powerful that I've ever felt in my life, more confident & CONTENT. It's the MOST powerful drug - when you truly believe in God, in good - in the universe & in my homeboy - Jesus!
Happy Birthday Jesus!
If born today you would be given the Gifts your father created for the intended peace & mind of all his children, that's why they are called 'WISE kings'.
Did you know the Government really cracked down when people using LSD started to speak up about & against the veitnam war.. and we all know how that really went down.
Happy Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas & Happy Birthday Jesus!
With TLC & THC
