we think of drugs as being substances that we take when we are ill, or as illicit substances that we take to change our perception of reality as a recreational activity. this is a narrow view of what drugs are.
my definition of what a drug is, is whatever effects our consciousness. when the definition of what a drug is is expanded in this way we start to see that anything and everything has the potential to be used, or abused, to change our perception of reality.
a shiny silver guitar can be consumed in such a way as to completely change the neural pathways of the brains of one or two or many thousands of people at a time.
so can thoughts themselves.
so can a picture of a day spent on the beach with friends.
so can meditation.
so can love.
so can seeing yourself filling with the warm glowing light of love until you burst and expand into the very outside reaches of the universe.
see yourself doing this each morning as you greet the day...........
for a week or two or however long you feel like feeling that good.
that love light shines out of your eyes and into the universe and back again.
when you decide.
