NeuroSoup: Entheogens are One Key to the Doorway of Enlightenment
I think the word "key" here is crucial. Entheogens are just a key to the Doors of Perception. Study, meditation, dreamwork, therapy, physical modalities like yoga or martial arts are also a very important part to the process- as is a phenomenal level of discipline and commitment. I don't use hallucinogens now, but I still very much see my work as a continuation of those explorations. I think people who read the Secret Sun understand that. Maybe in the future I will return to those explorations, but at the moment I feel it's very important to explore information that is less personal and subjective and provide information that people can share and experience with or without the neurochemical tools.The thing that I strongly believe- and RAW said the exact same thing himself when I saw him back in 91- is that that reckless, undisciplined use of hallucinogens has been a tremendous setback to the serious study of these tools. I hope the idiotic drug war will eventually become so cumbersome and self-defeating that therapists at least will be able to work with some of these tools again.
