Ignorant teachers, dumb students;
As I greet you directly to both, I also greet myself in the same manner. This is a dare to be aware of those around you losing the battle to their self through substance. If you are battling this war as I was or you know of this war, than you know it is the war on yourself and your love of substance/drugs. If you have conquered your enemy and can live your life in control than you are walking along side of me. This is where we need to ask ourselves “Would I rather my child be able to experiment willingly on Marijuana legally or go to the street and find whatever is there no matter what it is and continue through the drug maze unknowing or the extreme consequences?” Legalizing Marijuana?. Fortunately through this experience, some are able to get through a series of substances without needing serious help. Gratefully, I was able to get through my issue without any sort of drug rehab. Instead, by choice of self-help, I attended a regular month to month “mental health” counseling for treatment of PTSD, manic depression and developed self-will of dropping my old addictive nature. The purpose of this post is to reach out to help those that wish to help themselves whether they be a user or someone else that wishes to guide others through their downward spiral by sharing in the experience of what I have learned. In addition, I hope to help parents share with their children the dangers and manipulation of peers and their strongest enemy, their self. We can face this and move forward, it is only as hard as you convince yourself it is. We are only as weak as we allow our minds to be. Remember, this is a serious and critical condition of the mind and should not be taken lightly by anyone. Free your mind from all judgment because everyone is addicted to something and even Alcohol is a drug that controls each life of the alcoholic.(whether they be in denial or think they can not live with out the feeling) Peace be and don’t forget to take care along. Keep in mind all that you intake that is manufactured has chemical substances added to food for “flavoring aids” . This battle is real and there is nothing that will change what gets smuggled and sold through America while this War still persists and no one wishes to defeat it by ending it. Unless we choose not to be apart of it, we are all in harm’s way of spending a decade or more in its path of destruction. Care not to consume but to resume with out something that will own your life if you let your guard down.
A Life Lesson of it all is Surely Ma 15:11: It is not what enters the man that is unclean, but that which cometh out of the mouth that defiles a man.
By the end of it all, you will think you’re the one who is Crazy! (I already am aware that I am)~hanilol*
It is in the best interest of your mind/spirit that you do not take “drugs” because they may be “cool” but that you do not do them because people are unable to stay cool around them or on them. The fact is, people live one day at a time being insane abusing their personal addictions. (Meaning: your relationships of family and friends are always on thin ice if you fail to be honest) However, If you do choose to waste a small fortune on them than maybe you were meant to be a waste to learn how to take care of yourself the hard way. In addition, any intelligent person will find out quick what is really worth your investment of time and money in terms of self benefit. There is nothing to gain from all the money you smoke or partake by intake carelessly but there is a sorry lesson to learn and that is that drugs will most of the time be nothing more than a number through the amount of wasted energy you invest in them (If you let them get the best of you than you will surely become the worst of you) I do not promote the use of substance nor is it my job to condemn you for what you do in your life through your choice in what you will come across or think you may find on the street, my goal is to give awareness of the whole picture. The mission is not to indulge in something that will not ever last but to find something that will and indulge in that wholly.
“That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending – performing. You get to love your pretense. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.” Jim Morrison
