This Earth That We Have Is Precious Beyond Measure
It is good to be optimistic about the future, but we can’t ignore the current destruction of the planet.
Any society that allows the destruction of life’s foundations is insane.
What if we thought we only had a year left on this planet, would our actions be different?
Nature is not an infinite resource that we can just use and abuse like toilet paper, nature has her limits.
The only thing that I disagree with about this video though is that I do not promote the use of drugs for any reason.
Very good video. I grew up listening to and watching Alan on the tele. “Drugs” are a relative term to me. Some entheogens are more plant allies who teach us where the human and the plant world come together in trance. I think some plants simply stimulate the glands aka chakras to open up and pump various natural substances to our brains. But i experimented “back in the day” when things were pure, not mega-manipulated and polluted with other meds and the blood of the horses who carried them here to the US. P Psilocybin and MDMA were originally used by psychologists to break patients thru certain barriers. And shamans throughout the millennia have worked with both plants and fasting and ecstasy to reach trance states. I know MG yr final statement was mostly for legal reasons, because no one wants to promote the use of bad drugs,and unfortunately nowadays so many are bad, but then so many are good.

That’s true. I guess “drug” is kind of a vague term. I take prescription drugs when I get sick or have other ailments.
I think there are many Native peoples and other societies who used certain drugs for spiritual reasons. But now, it’s kind of hard to get into that stuff…because you don’t really know what you’re getting into. I agree with you on the point that today’s drugs are just too mixed up with all kinds of weird shit, that you don’t even know what you’re really taking anymore. Experimenting with this kind of stuff is like throwing your brain off a cliff and hoping it lands in a safe place.
I have a friend who thought she was just smoking pot, when it ended up being “west coast pot” in the sense that all kinds of other stuff was mixed in with it like cocaine. Was not a good time for her. I have another friend who has acid flashbacks from the stuff he used to do, even though he’s now clean.
Considering how unnatural today’s drugs are, I just don’t think it’s worth it to do that kind of stuff. There are plenty of other ways to get into a meditative spiritual state. I’ve had visions before, without the use of any hallucinogenic material – I did it via going into a deep state of meditation. I’ve also got in touch with spirits, but they seemed like dark and dangerous spirits that wanted nothing to do with humans. Given humanity’s track record, I don’t really blame them.
I think overall it’s best to treat one’s body like a temple, filling it with healthy food, water, exercise and positive energy. This approach is best for nurturing positive spiritual energy and a connection with the spirits of the Earth. But yeah…that’s enough of my rant.

Yes everything from natural meds to the land occupied by the Fae is Polluted by the hand of Man, which is why no med is safe unless u make it yrself n why the spirits are so riled up. Here on this property i caretake for awhile i am trying to listen to them and make things right for them and like i have said before the Indian spirits have come down from the mountain, AND, a few days ago i saw at 1030 at night my newest visitor – a black panther and the next day her older cub, not kidding, not on drugs or drunk, not in spirit, in reality. I plan on blogging about it later on. And yes there are black panthers up here with the brown cougars or mountain lions, and they fear us but we are also food and they are very stealthy, even hanging out in tree limbs. But i take the danger with the pleasure in making this land the way it used to be, and the Fae and their animals are returning….

Sounds like you get to live an awesome life in touch with the land.
