“The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.” – Carl Sagan, American Astronomer
I used to believe Marijuana is bad because it leads to mental illnesses. However, my experience with the drug and my extensive research on it changed my perception towards it.
While studying cannabis, I realized that most ancient cultures deified and used it in their religious practices. For instance, ancient Greeks used marijuana in religious ceremonies while some ancient African tribes worshipped it. Besides this, ancient Indians offered their gods cannabis because they believed Lord Shiva created and smoked it.
Furthermore, some ancient cultures, specifically the ancient Egyptians and Chinese, discovered the medical benefits of Marijuana. The Chinese realized that Marijuana enables the body to achieve a harmonious state while ancient Egyptians used Marijuana to treat psychological problems and many other health issues.
Many modern health practitioners agree with the ancients about marijuana’s ability to heal medical issues as they use marijuana to treat epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorders, chronic pain, and glaucoma.
Personally, I realized the drug relieves anxiety and stress as it helped me adopt a positive perspective towards heartbreaks that almost killed me. Furthermore, it enabled me to think deeper and gain great spiritual insights I couldn’t have gained when sober.
Most governments banned cannabis after claiming it was a gateway drug and was responsible for severe mental illnesses. However, research reveals marijuana isn’t a gateway drug since most marijuana addicts seldom use other substances. Besides this, I live in an area where many people use cannabis, and I rarely see them use other illicit drugs.
Additionally, contrary to most governments’ claims, marijuana doesn’t cause mental illnesses. I’ve used it for more than five years, and I’ve never gone mad. Moreover, many studies show that cannabis has antipsychotic effects which treat mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia.
Some conspiracy theorists believe the government banned marijuana because it almost made the paper industry bankrupt as it provided a cheaper way of making paper. This conspiracy theory might be true because the ancient Chinese used cannabis to make paper.
Additionally, other conspiracy theorists claim the government banned marijuana because it enabled people to realize important spiritual truths the government didn’t want them to know. This theory might also be true because recently, after using cannabis, it dawned on me that my consciousness is the same consciousness that created the world.
Anyway, I believe the government banned marijuana because it feared some people, especially teenagers, might overconsume it. Marijuana is a dangerous drug when used in excess because it leads to laziness and increases the risk of psychosis. But remember, everything is dangerous when used in excess. For instance, drinking too much water causes nausea and muscle weakness while overeating causes obesity.
For this reason, marijuana is harmless and beneficial when used in moderation. It provides unique spiritual, health, and mental benefits nothing else can provide.

The Three Major Voices in our Heads and Why We Must Know Them
We all have voices in our heads, and some of us try silencing them because they sometimes cause depression, anxiety, or worry. Although these voices mostly cause feelings of distress, some of them can help us overcome obstacles and understand our true selves. It’s thus important to know the type of voice present in your head at any moment so that you know whether to ignore it or listen to it.
I wanted to know the different types of voices in my head, and therefore, I meditated on them, and I eventually realized that there are three major types of voices in our heads.
Here are they:
1.The Animal Voice
The animal voice mainly focuses on survival. It likes talking about food, water, sleep, sex, and other factors necessary for our survival. For instance, if you haven’t had sex for a long time, this voice will constantly talk about sex, and it will try to help you find a way to fulfill your sexual desires. Also, if you haven’t slept for a while, it will constantly tell you that you need to sleep since it knows that sleep is important to your survival.
2.The Ego Voice
This is the loudest and the main voice that speaks to us all the time. It’s created by our egoic-self.
The ego voice is highly judgmental and pessimistic. It fears uncertainty, and it will always talk you out of taking risks or doing anything with an uncertain outcome, even when it will be beneficial in the long-run. Besides, it likes knowing everything about the future, and for this reason, it will always overanalyze or try to predict the future.
The ego voice is usually confused since it is disconnected from reality. Lastly, it usually talks about your appearance and social status, and it worries when you encounter factors that make you feel less important.
3.The Voice of Infinite Intelligence/The Intuitive Voice/The Voice of God
Mastering the intuitive voice is the secret to spiritual growth because this voice loves directing you towards spiritual development by reminding you about the importance of spiritual practices. It also loves reminding you about your dreams and your heart’s desires so that you follow them and reach your full potential. Besides this, it cares about everybody, and it encourages you to be compassionate, loving, selfless, and benevolent.
This voice is never confused, and everything makes sense when it speaks. We must learn to pinpoint and trust it because it always leads people towards prosperous and fulfilling lives.
It’s important to know the difference between these voices so that we know the voice that we must pay attention to, and the voice we must silence or ignore. Anyway, besides these voices, I believe there are many other voices in our heads. You are free to discuss them in the comment box below.

How Mainstream Academia Disconnected Us From Ancient Spirituality
After analyzing mainstream academia for a while, I realized that it has disconnected us from ancient spirituality because it wants to keep us unenlightened.
One major way it has disconnected us from ancient spirituality is by classifying myths as stories with no value. Academia has resulted in a negative attitude towards mythology as it claims that myths were based on superstitions and fantasy. However, anyone who deeply analyzes myths realizes that they contain powerful spiritual lessons.
For instance, anyone who studies the Myth of Gilgamesh realizes that its creators wanted us to know that virtue results in immortality because, in the story, Gilgamesh realized that he would be remembered forever if he committed himself to becoming a virtuous king.
Besides myths, mainstream academia has concealed the truth about ancient blood sacrifices. Today, we never bother to study ancient blood sacrifices because academia brainwashed us into believing that they had no value. However, blood sacrifices were important because blood contains the essence of life force, and therefore, spiritual entities gained from these sacrifices in a way that mainstream academia refused to tell us.
Furthermore, academia has resulted in many people believing that polytheism was founded on a false belief system. However, many ancient history researchers now believe in the existence of many lesser gods, besides the Supreme God. They claim that it was from the lesser gods that the Christian and Muslim belief of angels was derived. As well, my analysis of ancient spirituality enlightened me that ancient people were polytheists because their strong connection to the spirit-world enabled them to see the lesser gods.
Moreover, mainstream academia instilled in us the belief that ancient religions were based on superstitions and are unreliable since they were created by primitive individuals. Academia avoids telling us that ancient spirituality was so powerful that it enabled the ancients to have a deep connection with nature. This connection enabled them to know medicinal, poisonous, and edible plants instinctively. Today, we spend lots of money to pinpoint edible and medicinal plants because we lost our connection with nature.
On top of that, I discovered that mainstream academia never informs us that today, many wealthy individuals secretly visit shamans – that still practice ancient spirituality – because they have realized the effectiveness of ancient spiritual practices.
In conclusion, I think we should start studying ancient spirituality and stop relying on the information that mainstream academia gives us about ancient spirituality because academia’s main aim is to convert us into dumb machines that work for the elite’s companies.
