Entheogens Tap Us Into The Divine

Entheogens (psychoactive substances) are often regarded as facilitating the connection between Heaven and Earth.

Entheogens free the nervous system of its ordinary patterns and structures.

"Following the Tibetan model then, we distinguish three phases of the psychedelic experience.

The first period (Chikhai Bardo) is that of complete transcendence - beyond words, beyond space-time, beyond Self.

There are no visions, no sense of self, no thoughts.

There are only pure awareness and ecstatic freedom.

The second lengthy period involves self, or external reality (Chonyid Bardo) - in sharp exquisite clarity or in the form of hallucinations (karmic apparitions).

The final period (Sidpa Bardo) involves the return to routine reality and self.

For most persons the second (aesthetic or hallucinatory) stage is the longest.

For the initiated the first stage of illumination lasts longer.

For the unprepared who anxiously cling to their egos, and for those who take the drug in a non-supportive setting, the struggle to regain reality begins early and usually lasts to the end of their session." - Ralph Metzner

Psychoactive substances have been used in ritual by indigenous peoples since time immemorial to open a cognitive window into the subconscious.

The psychoactive substance used in the culture is dependent on the plants available to that culture.

An example of a time psychoactive substances would be used is during the shamanic journey youth takes from consciousness directed at self (necessary for survival) to consciousness directed at cooperation within the tribal group, an increase in empathetic awareness; manhood or womanhood ritual.

Other methods of consciousness modification used ritually:

monotonous repetitive chanting;

monotonous repetitive walking at steady pace;

monotonous repetitive hand and/or arm movements;

sitting in the Lotus position focusing on your breathing;

Neo-pagans, Shi'a and Opus Dei use flagellation;

New Apostolic Reformation use music modulated to brain wavelengths;

traditional Christians sang hymns;

every culture sang and beat drums;

- ALL modify consciousness.

Consciousness modification allows one to free oneself from the thought patterns that already exist and to form new thought patterns.

Cannabis is used for the binding together of married couples, to drive away evil spirits, and to create laughter and happiness in marriage.

Bamboo Flute`s Meditation Melody



Shiva-Nataraja, the Lord of the Dance brought cannabis from the Himalayas for human enjoyment and enlightenment.

Sadhu adepts (ascetics) travel throughout India and the world sharing "chillum" pipes filled with cannabis, sometimes blended with other substances.

In the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna states, "I am the healing herb" (Ch.9:16), while the Bhagarat-Purana Fifth Canto describes hashish in explicitly sexual terms.


(India, Tibet and China)

Buddhists have since the 5th century BC on ritually used cannabis; initiation rites and mystical experiences are common in many Chinese Buddhist Sects.

Some Tibetan Buddhists and lamas consider cannabis their most holy plant.

Many Buddhist traditions, writings, and beliefs indicate that Siddhartha Gautama used and ate nothing but hemp and its seeds for six years prior to discovering the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path.


(Persia - now Iran)

At the age of thirty Zoroaster the Persian sat on the river bank on a beautiful sunshiny day during the spring festival drinking bhanga.

Zoroaster experienced an astonishing revelation.

In a reflection on the river he saw a shining Being, revealed as Vohu Manah (Good Purpose) which taught him about Ahura Mazda (Wise Spirit).

Zoroaster soon became aware of the existence of another primal Spirit, the second being Angra Mainyu (Hostile Spirit), with opposing concepts of Asha (Truth) and Druj (Lie).

Thus did Zoroaster decide to spend his life teaching people to seek Asha.

The Zoroastrian religion was practiced between the 8th century BC and the 4th century AD when it was replaced by Roman Catholicism.

Zoroastrianism was based on the entire cannabis plant, the chief religious sacrament of its shaman class, and its most important medicine - obstetrics, incense rites, anointing and christening oils.

The word "magic" is generally considered derived from the Zoroastrian "Magi".

The three "Magi" or Wise Men who attended the birth of Christ were references to the Zoroastrians.

Frankincense Proven To Be Psychoactive Antidepressant

Since the Magian age, the genus Commiphora is composed of more than 200 species, and has been used as a natural drug to treat pain, skin infections, inflammation diarrhea, and periodontal diseases. Traditional practice and evidence based research suggest this is attributable to terpenoids, active compounds present in myrrh essential oil.

Cannabis Not Associated with Brain Morphometric Measures

The cannabis plant has an ancient history of ritual usage as a hypnotic trance inducing drug and is found in use throughout the ancient world.

Kings of the Levant, Anointed with Oil ascended the Throne, looked at the lands and their peoples from a mystical consciousness perspective.

As part of holy Friday night services in the Temple of Solomon, men ritually passed around and inhaled from incense burners filled with kanabosom (cannabis), before returning home for the largest meal of the week .

Rastafarians continue this ritual to this day.

Qumran and Masada


The Therapeutae

The Hebrew mystery cult that penned the Dead Sea Scrolls inhabited the settlement at Qumran, a plateau in the Judean Desert along the Dead Sea from ~ 200 B.C. to 73 A.D. used cannabis as a religious icon.

"The Dead Sea Scrolls show that the Qumran community saw history as presently ruled over by two superhuman spirits, Light and Darkness, with the Romans being under the sway of the power of Darkness." - David Ray Griffin

Historical biblical scholars believe Jesus broke bread with the Essenes.

Josephus identified the Essenes as one of the three major Jewish sects - the Pharisees and the Sadducees being the other two at that period of time.

It is almost impossible in reading of the Essenes not to be forcibly struck with the remarkable resemblance between their doctrines, precepts and practices, and those of Jesus and the early Christians.

Jesus is recorded to have frequently rebuked and denounced both the Sadducees and Pharisees, but the Essenes are never mentioned by name.

We are informed by both Philo and Josephus at the period John the Baptist and Jesus were born four thousand Essenes were scattered over Palestine.

It should be mentioned that peculiar importance is to be attached to the testimony of both Philo and Josephus respecting the mode of life pursued by the Essenes, as these authors were fully acquainted with it.

They speak also with great respect and reverence of this sect, as surpassing all others in virtue.

Josephus informs us that they led the same kind of life as the Pythagoreans in Greece.

They were thought worthy even of divine revelations, Philo says they were honoured with the appellation of Essenes because of their exceeding holiness.

The Pharisees informed future Judaism.

The Sadducees informed Zionism enhancing and elevating the ponerological pathology of the "Chosen Ones".

Qumran is 35 miles from Masada and 30 miles from Jerusalem.

The Essenes were the librarians of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The accounts of Josephus and Philo state that the Essenes led a strictly celibate and communal life - often compared by scholars to later Christian monastic living - although Josephus speaks also of another "rank of Essenes"(?) that did get married.

According to Josephus:

the Essenes observed collective ownership;

elected a communal leader with law enforcement executive power;

were forbidden from swearing oaths and sacrificing animals;

were charged with controlling their temper and acting as channels of peace;
they carried weapons only as protection against robbers.

Josephus and Philo have lengthy accounts of their communal meetings, meals and religious celebrations.

According to the Dead Sea Scrolls the Essenes' community school at Qumran was called "Yahad" (meaning "unity") in order to differentiate themselves from the rest of the Jews who are repeatedly labeled "The Breakers of the Covenant".

"A branch of the Pharisees who conformed to the most rigid rules of Levitical purity while aspiring to the highest degree of holiness.

They lived solely by the work of their hands and in a state of communism, devoted their time to study and devotion and to the practice of benevolence.

They refrained as far as feasible from conjugal coitus and sensual pleasures, in order to be initiated into the highest mysteries of heaven." -


Therapeutae, from which derives "therapeutic, was a Greek term for Hebrew worshippers of the Hellenistic Egyptian god, Serapis who where also followers of Æsculapius the Healer.

The Essenes and the Therapeutae worked to synthesize Hebrew Oral Tradition with Pagan Gnostic traditions of the Greater Mediterranean to create a synthetic religion that would be generally understood by the Hellenized population.

Muslim "mystical" adepts who have taught, used and extolled cannabis for divine revelation, insight and oneness with Allah, for at least the last 1,000 years.

The mysticism of the Sufi adepts descended from the synthesis of Gnostic Mysteries with Islam which survived the Muslim conquests of the 7th and 8th centuries AD and subsequent conversion.

In Islam the use of alcohol is forbidden but the use of hashish is allowed.



Some sects believe the sacred "green herb of the field" in the Bible and the Biblical secret incenses, sweet incenses and anointing oils to be cannabis.

Elders of the modern religious movement known as the Ethiopian Coptic Church consider cannabis to be the Eucharist, claiming it as an Oral Tradition from Ethiopia dating back to the time of Christ.


Somali Bantu Traditional Music

The Bantus had secret Dagga Cults,* societies which restricted cannabis use to the ruling men. The Pygmies, Zulus and Hottentots all found it an indispensable medication for cramps, epilepsy and gout, and as a religious sacrament.

These "Dagga" cults believed Holy Cannabis was brought to Earth by the Gods, in particular from the "Two Dog Star" system that we call Sirius A and B. "Dagga" literally means "cannabis."

Interestingly, the surviving Indo-European word for the plant can also be read as "canna," "reed" and "bi," "two," as well as "canna," as in canine; and "bis," meaning two (bi) "Two Dogs."




Rastafarians use "ganja" as a sacred sacrament to communicate with God (Jah).

"And the Earth brought forth grass and herb-yielding seed after its kind and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself after its kind: and God saw that it was good." Genesis: Chapt. 1: Verse 12

"God makes the Earth yield healing herbs, which the prudent man should not neglect." Sirach: 38:4

"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; That which cometh out of the mouth defileth a man." Jesus, quoted: Matt. 15:11.

"In later times, some shall speak lies in hypocrisy commanding to abstain from that which God hath forged to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth." Paul: 1 Tim. 4:1

Psilocybin Switches Off Part Of Brain That Causes Depression

"At first the Harvard psilocybin research project was small, comprising Leary, Alpert and six graduate students.

Leary and Alpert wanted to study the mental and emotional effects of the drug on artists and intellectuals.

Using psilocybin, ordered from Sandoz, the thirty-eight subjects were allowed to control their own dosages (within reasonable limits), taking the drug in pleasant, spacious surroundings.

Huxley was among the volunteers, as were Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs, two of the leading Beat artists; Alan Watts, noted expert on Zen Buddhism; and Arthur Koestler, writer and philosopher." - Stewart Tendler

Psilocybin mushrooms have been part of human culture as far back as the earliest recorded history.

Ancient paintings of 'mushroomed' humanoids dating to 5,000 BC have been found in caves of Northern Algeria.

Central and Southern America cultures built temples to mushroom gods and carved "mushroom stones", dated to as early as 1000-500 B.C.

Psilocybian mushrooms were used in ritual and ceremony among the Aztecs, served with honey or chocolate at some of their holiest events.

The experience of ingestion is typically inwardly oriented, with strong visual and auditory elements.

Visions and revelations may be experienced, and the effect can range from exhilarating to distressing.

Salvia divinorum is native to certain areas in the Sierra Mazateca of Oaxaca, Mexico, where it is still used by the Mazatec Indians, primarily to facilitate shamanic visions in the context of divination.

Shamans crush the leaves to extract leaf juices; they usually mix these juices with water to create an infusion or 'tea' which they drink to induce visions in ritual healing ceremonies.

"While I was sitting at tea, I felt a strange sensation, totally unlike anything I had ever felt before.

A gradual creeping thrill, which in a few minutes occupied every part of my body, lulling to sleep the before-mentioned racking pain, producing a pleasing glow from head to foot, and inducing a sensation of dreamy exhilaration similar in nature but not in degree to the drowsiness caused by wine, though not inclining me to sleep.

In fact far from it, that I longed to engage in some active exercise.

To sing, dance, or leap ... so vividly did I feel my vitality - for in this state of delicious exhilaration even mere excitement seemed absolute elysium - that I could not resist the tendency to break out in the strangest vagaries, until my companions thought me deranged.

Before my entranced sight magnificent halls stretched out in endless succession with galley above gallery, while the roof was blazing with gems, like stars whose rays alone illumined the whole building, which was tinged with strange, gigantic figures, like the wild possessors of lost globe.

I will not attempt farther to chronicle the magnificent vision which a little pill of 'brown gum' had conjured up from the realm of ideal being.

No words that I can command would do justice to its Titanian splendour and immensity." - William Blair
