The heart is always pure; there is no way to make it impure. And the head is always impure; there is no way to make it pure.
And these are the alternative ways to live: one either can live in the head or one can live in the heart. If you live in the head you may be successful in life, you may become very rich, powerful socially, politically, you may become very respectable, world-famous. But deep down you will be all tears and nothing else because you will see the futility of all that you have attained; you have wasted such a precious life for rubbish. Death takes everything away.
This is the criterion: anything that can be taken away by death is not worth bothering about much. Anything that cannot be taken away by death — that is something to create, to discover. One can sacrifice everything for it, it is worth sacrificing for.
The heart cannot give you any outward success but it can give you a deep inner peace, a great joy, a blissfulness, a blessedness, a benediction, and it can slowly slowly lead you towards the other shore, towards god.
When you are absolutely pure the ego disappears. You are, and yet you are not. In one sense you are not, not as you have always been; in another sense you are and for the first time you are. But you are no more an ego, confined in the body-mind complex.
You are infinite.
You are as vast as god.
You are one with god.
Only the door of the heart can become the door of god’s temple.
Move from the head to the heart.
Society gives the feeling to every person that he is worthless. It is a political strategy. Once a person gets the idea that he is worthless, he cannot be rebellious, he cannot be independent, he cannot go outside the fold. He cannot choose a path of his own, he will follow the crowd.
Once the idea sinks deep into your unconscious that you are worthless you cannot trust yourself; you will have to trust the priest, the politician, the teacher, the parents — all kinds of authorities. And you will seek them, you will cling to them because the ground underneath your feet has been taken away. You are afraid to be left alone on your own because then you know you cannot decide, all that you decide is wrong; you cannot act, whatsoever you do is wrong. Then it is better to follow the mob; let them decide, you just be an imitator.
To create imitators and slaves each child’s trust in himself is being destroyed all over the world, in all kinds of societies and cultures, in all countries.
The reason weed is seen as bad is more to do with influencial reasons than anything else. for 10,000 years of recorded human history it has been known that marijuana was ingrained in a lot of our culture, it was only untill the 1940’s that it became an ilegal substance but before than it was heavily used. most early medicines used marijuana even in early times it was known for its medicinal purposes.
Today people have rejected this theory based on a study that was done which forms the foundation of all arguments for weed killing brain cells. this was a study done in 1974 whereby Ronald Regal announces the most reliable study reveals marijuana causes permanent brain damages one of the inevitable results of using marijuana. In this study monkeys were pumped full of marijuana at 30 joints a day and went on to die after 90 days. Brain damage was determined after counting the dead brain cells of both monkeys who had been subjected to the marijuana and ones who had not. This study became the foundation of the government and other special interest groups claim that marijuana kills brain cells… heres what they didn’t tell you, after 6 years of request of how the study was conducted it was finally revealed. Instead of administering 30 joints a day for 1 year. Dr heath used a method off pumping 63 Colombian strength joints through a gas mask within 5 minutes over 3 months. This suffocated the monkeys, although they pumped pot into these gas masks but without additional oxygen so after x amount of time the brain shut down. As you know, if you suffocate the first thing that’s going to happen is that your brain cells are going to die with lack of oxygen. So what they did was suffocate the monkeys showed all these dead brain cells and than went on to associate cannabis use with causing brain cells to die and how many people not knowing the origin of the study have went on to believe this? Now people believe it. Studies since have shown no signs of any brain damage, in 2005 new research suggested that marijuana may actually stimulate brain growth. That study hasn’t received the same attention. Another common belief is that marijuana causes lung cancer. In the 1999 study by the institute of medicine which was paid for by the u.s. government they had to use words like may and should cause lung cancer when describing marijuana. We been hearing this for years but they can’t even show us not one case of solely marijuana use. Smoking can be harmful because of the use of smoke not as a result of anything in the pant. A study recently came out verifying that cannabis smoke does not cause cancer (by Dr Donald Tashkin, UCLA) and the elements in tobacco smoke do cause cancer. The fact is there is never been one case of marijuana only smokers getting brown lung, emphysema. The fact is if they had the evidence they’d be parading it throughout the media, they don’t have one case.
the reason weed is ilegal is also due to the pharmaceutical industry which is the largest industry in the world. there money comes from developing and giving out drugs to people which they have developed. Marijuana has many medicinal purposes that drugs are prescribed for and therefore this eliminates a need for a lot of drugs because anyone can grow weed themselves which in turn means less money would be made. there is a lot of evidence for this.
if you look at weeds history, you can see that not one single recorded death has EVER been recorded. you can look this up. there has also never been one recorded case of brown lung syndrome which is generally caused by smoking. some scientists have came to beleive this may be due to the chemical compound in marijuana THC acting as a sort of protective layer inside your lungs agaisnt the smoke and therefore no conditions have been recorded. there actually has been studies done that marijuana stimulates brain growth however there are not enough studies that have been done on this to confirm.
a hell of a lot of influencial people in recent times who smoked and still smoke weed. people of the likes of Barack Obama have, tedd turner who developed cnn news smoking pot. Steve jobbs who developed apple computers smoked pot. the rolling stones did, the beatles, bob marley. virtually every presidential candidate has admitted to smoking pot. the list goes on but a lot of people have been brain washed into thinking weed is bad.
look for the video “The Union: the business behind getting high” if you want to see some ample evidence of a brief history of weed
