The Pharmacratic Inquisition (Video)

Thousands of years ago, in the pre monarchic era, psychedelic/entheogenic substances were publicly known world wide and were respected for their ability to bring forth the divine, Yahweh, God, The Great Spirit, etc., by the many cultures who used them. Often the entire tribe or community would partake in the entheogenic rites. These rites were often used in initiation into adulthood, for healing, to help guide the community in the decision process, and to bring the direct religious experience to anyone seeking it, that might take these psychedelic sacraments properly. In the pre literate world, the knowledge of psychedelic plant sacraments, as well as fertility rites and astronomical knowledge surrounding the sun, stars, and zodiac, known as astrotheology, were anthropomorphized into human/god like beings so their stories and practices could be passed down for generations. Weather changes over time caused environmental changes that altered the available foods and plant sacraments available in the local vicinity. If a tribe lost its shamanic El-der (El - God), all of the tribe's knowledge of their plant sacraments as well as astronomical knowledge would be lost. The Church’s inquisitions extracted this sacred knowledge from the local Shamans who were then exterminated…It is time to recognize the fact that this Pharmacratic Inquisition is still intact and destroy it.

interesting isn't it? we don't know many people who access these realms or follow this path of seeking who have not first, or also, walked the path of "natural therapy".

We seem to all learn the; mind calming mantras, the essential role of breath control, the quality of slow yogic body work, treats of nature and a feeling of irremovable, unshakeable oneness and a distaste for control and formality.

I for one could not say I would have walked this path without getting a blast of LSD at school. Then entering the blue smoke mist of THC and the happy world of fungus for years to follow.

The revelations available to us are magnificent. We enter realms walked by fellow humans for thousands (maybe eternity as time is such a false concept) of years, we visit those same realms and share their same visions - we relate clearly with the dust they left behind. The ones who left work in books that has escaped pollution in translation still rings true to us now, thousands of years later. Even the paintings on rocks from 10's of thousands of years ago carry us back to the shared conciousness of our ancestors.

Then with time (at least from personal perspective) the drugs are no longer required or even welcome, I have no wish to cloud the clarity I carry now with a vegetarian diet, clear mind and slow breath. But am not sure I would have got here without them..

Don't you think that, if anything in life were to be compulsory, it would be a trip to that place?

This vid is spot on. It raises the question: what does the next age mean to us? Perhaps we are moving from a head based(pineal/third eye) connection to "God" to a heart based one?
