I’m still making changes to the blog and enjoying a quiet Sunday with my love. So strange that spiritual awakenings make you happy to do the laundry and keep your house clean. Sure, it still sucks in the same way but because I used to own a house on the “dark side” that I appreciate being able to do my chores without wanting to die or gobble a bottle of pills to get through the day.
I still have my demons. I just made friends with them after I confronted their bitch asses, found out they were weak little bastards, and made them sit in time out while I moved on with my badass self.
May I suggest a little Pau D’Arco tea and some tater tots to help wind down after an afternoon of silly chores? Because that’s what I’m gonna do.
And smoke. Because I smoke pot. Yep, I’m drug free and have been for quite awhile. I don’t preach NA because I think self talk is the most important talk and telling myself and others that I’m an addict every single day of my life only reinforces it. So I stopped telling myself I was an addict and stopped letting other people who were just as sick as me tell me how to live my life.
And that’s how I came to use plant medicines like the universe intended.
Not saying Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous aren’t helpful but… let’s look at the statistics here. It kind of doesn’t work [an estimated 5-10%] Besides, Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous wanted to incorporate psychedelics into the 12 steps so people could achieve the spiritual awakening the 12 steps are designed to do.
Here is an article explaining it further… http://www.theguardian.com/science/2012/aug/23/lsd-help-alcoholics-theory
I also find it delightful that the founder of AA took LSD with Aldous Huxley. But I digress… so yeah, I’m not a fan of the 12 steps. It was only after I finally, after years of following everything NA/AA had to say, that I said “Fuck it!”, walked out those doors, and never looked back. It was only then when I finally began to heal.
