I can't find the beauty or "sacredness" in this herb.

  1. I haven't smoked THAT much so I can't call myself a stoner but I've smoked enough to know the different levels of highness and how it feels (well, not really that but that's what I'm about to elaborate on.) I get high and just do random shit instead of doing what I wanted to do when high. People enjoy marijuana but I want to know why. When I get high I take it for granted and don't really analyze what is going on in my mind and how I feel. All I feel is imagination and creativity but I don't have anything to draw on so lets just say imagination. People can open up their mind under the influence of this drug but I have yet to do so. I just fuck around on the internet. I hope the problem is I haven't had the time, or I don't have the stuff to "open up my mind" on such as a musical instrument. My greatest fear is that marijuana doesn't have much of an open mind effect on me.

    Since I haven't smoked much do you guys think I just need to try different strains or what? Not sure what I was expecting out of this thread but I just can't stand it anymore. I listen to music about marijuana and then think to myself "what's so great about it?"
  2. stop trolling
  3. Compare marijuana to driving a car. As soon as you take a puff you're behind the drivers' seat. The engine's running and you can go anywhere you want. But just because you own a car though, does not guarantee that you will take it to useful, productive or enlightening places. You may just drive in circles, get in a wreck or simply drive it off a cliff. It all depends upon your intention when you're driving as to where you end up, and what you'll do when you get there. Marijuana is the same way. Although it contains great potentials for self-transformation and can take you to places you never dreamed of, its effect is still primarily limited to the mind that is driving it, so to speak.

    Please look up the definition of a troll and realize the irony here
  4. if you don't like it, stop smoking because everyone else does?

  5. wanted to rep you for this but can't so soon. pace

  6. So you're saying it's my mindset?
  7. Pretty much.

  8. Well that sucks. Now I have no chance :/ I can't change my mindset because it's pretty damn hard to change the way you look at things.
  9. set and setting
  10. Its not as hard as you think. Even small changes in your life can have a big impact on your total outlook
  11. Don't worry about it, not everyone smokes to expand their mind or whatever. I just like being high, it's relaxing after a long day of work and it makes regular activities more interesting sometimes.

  12. This right here.
  13. You probably need to not analyze it..but feed your mind AND your bong.....go clean your car..listen to music.....read zen koans...its all what you expose yourself to....play some video games....

    Enjoy life while it lasts..it is so very very short.

  15. Hey guys, I dont take credit for that quote. Its an outtake from an interview from a man who is apart of a group called "The World Mind Society"

    Erowid Cannabis Vault : Spirituality : Resurrection of the Higher Self

    They used to have some of the greatest publishing's on their site before I guess they forgot about it and it no longer exists

    You can find some remnants here.

    This is not a tl;dr thing. Dont half ass it. Its worth it
  16. Someone once said you don't really come to an appreciation with herb until you smoke by yourself because your in control of every aspect of it.
  17. You're doing it wrong
  18. at this point youre probably thinking about it too much. when you get high don't think "omg i'm so high what should i do now! everything should be so fun right!?" just go with the flow. close your eyes and listen to some good tunes with some GOOD headphones [not earbuds]. just try some shit out besides looking at "trippy pics" on google images. [not saying YOU do, but i know a lot of people do]. i mean dont get me wrong theres nothin wrong with that i'm just sayin. that's kinda boring lol
  19. I don't think there's any such thing as 'thinking too much', but it sounds to me as if you're looking for a creative outlet, but haven't given yourself the means. Buy a notepad and pen, a sketchpad and pencil, a canvas, brush and paints, or a couple pounds of clay. Pot can definitely help you express the creativity you have, but you need the right tools.

    I believe everyone is inherently creative, they only lack the means to express it.
  20. Order, beg, borrow, or steal any book by DT Suzuki. When it arrives, smoke a bowl and start reading... See what that does for your outlook.
