Hallucinogenics - A 'smash-and-grab on the Transcendental'?
That phrase was used by a Buddhist teacher of mine I respect who had experienced profound states of insight in the sobriety of meditationand experienced the reality of LSD.
I would be interested to hear the opinions of my fellow sangha-members as to whether the two experiences might (even if only conceptually) correlate for them (you don't have to have taken hallucinogenics to comment, obviously).
This isn't intended to be a discussion about 'drugs' and whether we should take them.
I am hoping for a sober discussion about the nature of consciousness.
This is the first thread that I I have ever started so I have really tried to phrase my open question carefully.
Please be gentle with me...
