I've been meaning to post for about this for a long time, but I haven't been able to do it yet. Tonight seems good though, because I'm high and I don't have work tomorrow. I also have a question, because it will affect this thread. Are we allowed to mention another drug? Either way: A few weeks ago, while "entering a new dimension of thought" I was smoking a bowl and had a beautiful experience. This is going to sound overly-hippie to some if you don't understand matter and the spiritual context of energy. I emptied my cashed bowl into my turtle-shell ashtray, and it was still cherried in part. Smoke was slowly drifting up from it, and I thought about getting high by burning cannabis as incense. Just a passing thought. Then I inhaled some of the smoke and felt it fill my lungs and into my bloodstream. If you know what smudging is, I smudged myself with the smoke. If you don't know what smudging is, it's when you bathe and cleanse or purify something with smoke, by wafting the smoke over something as you would water. This whole time I began to feel so good, and feel so thankful for bud. I said "Thank you" aloud to ganja and then felt like my energetic essence directly bonded with or came in contact with the energetic essence of ganja. Essentially, I met the Spirit of Cannabis. I now smoke with so much more respect for the plant and I feel "closer" to my bud.
