I was blessed to meet him last year (before my first 5MEO) and asked if he thought psychedelics could be helpful to go within : 'No', the teacher said. But it was my prarabha to take 5MEO. I stayed with the memory of that powerfull experience (where I sank at the bottom of myself - union) for a year before going back to him and exposing it, asking if it was true spirituality. 'No, it is not'. It was certainly disapointing and I still think he doesn't understand ! How arrogant!!
QuoteHe said :Drugs can only affect what appears in our awareness and whatever is experienced is nourrishing ego.Drugs cannot drive the mind within only grace can.Drugs can only lead to a state of 'manolaya', like sleep, wich has no spiritual benefit or lead to more experiences.Only the mere awarness of I AM can dissolve ego, 'manonassa'.
QuoteI was touched that you waited 5 years to share with words what is unspeakable. The answers given by the teacher helped me to see how attached I am to this experience of union. How I refer to it when I think about God. I feel you are too.
