The basic challenge for every Soul, hidden within every person, comes down to the level of the Virtue of CONSCIENCE contained within the Soul of a person? How much Conscience a Soul possesses WILL determine how that person perceives the use of Marijuana? This choice is not an intellectual choice [although most people believe the choice is intellectual]. The choice is made by a person’s MIND that, due to a lack of “C’etc” [pronounced “C_etcetera”], which is my symbol for the Virtues of Life we Souls are slowly acquiring by completing Karam over many, many lifetimes. A lack of Conscience… is a lack of C’etc, which means a person is lacking the Virtues of Life. My names for the Virtues of Life are: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding. These Virtues form a person’s level of Conscious Awareness, which I give the symbol “C-Awar”. And if a person lacks the Virtue of Conscience, chances are quite good that person also lacks the Virtue of Discretion as well. And by lacking these important Virtues, a person is more prone to, or vulnerable to be controlled by his or her MIND [which is not the brain, but is a subtle energy body existing within Man that administers the Law of Karma from within Man].
Alas, modern mental health began denying the MIND of Man in the early 1900s, when a scientist [ignorant of Psychology] named B.F. Skinner, offered an Oxymoron he called “Behavioral Psychology” as a new way to study Man. Unknown to himself, his new idea was simply a verbal statement of the factors by which the MIND of Man subtly controls what a person thinks and does. I refer to this oxymoron, and those trained in it, by the symbol “BS&bp” [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’].
And the MIND [symbol ], is the primary determinate in a person’s choice regarding Good and Evil in Life. A person will automatically chose evil over good if that person lacks the Virtues of Life which allow one to “see” what is good and what is evil? So, those people who favor the harmful drug Marijuana choose this evil because they have insufficient experience [ a lack of C’etc], and therefore, they are unable to “see” beyond it’s ability to cause them to “feel good,” as it blocks their Conscious Awareness of their own Karmic pain. When we block this Karmic pain, it WILL FIND OTHER WAYS IN WHICH TO CAUSE US PAIN AND SUFFERING. Quite literally, no one avoids his or her Karma.
The Lord helps us experience our negative Karma in the least harmful way possible… however, if we refuse to accept this pain, then more painful ways of feeding us our negative Karma will be initiated. Only a fool thinks that avoiding the pain of life is a good idea!
But, there are a great many Intelack type people on Earth who see drugs as a very good source of money. It is sad there are not as many Enlightened people in America who “see” taking drugs as harmful, and speak out loudly against it.
