    Just found this over at the Wikipedia, and thought it would provoke some interesting discussion here. I think that these 12 principles form a good solid foundation for responsible use, even if the wording of a couple of them could use clarification or revision.

    EXCELLENT!

    I would like to add.

    I will not go "shopping" in my parent's medicine cabinet and snort up their antidepressants or allergy pills. LOL.

    Really, Ellis, this was a great post! Very responsible. I wish all neural navagators and drug experiencers would abide by it.

    Rules for alternative lifestyles. Military Intelligence. Honesty politics. Jumbo Shrimp. Despite all that, I have to agree with you and that is a conclusion reached from vast experience, both mis-takes and takes. Love,Light & Dharma

    This is a good list aimed at promoting well being on all levels. :)


    Much love to you all!


    Here's one I would like to add for my own personal list

    I will remember not to take what I am experiencing serious because it is a cosmic joke, for it is Maharaji's lila, it is alright (divine, buddha, christ, god, universe, shiva), just a dance, praise be Shiva whose divine comedy show this be a manifestation of, let all beings be liberated in the inevitable process of the spiritual path, seeing the opposites of being "on drugs" and being "off drugs" reconciled, to see that they are one, in this eternal moment of now, a sacrament, RESTING in my BEING, time is a concept, future, past and present are one, The universe wants to play with us, dance into your deepest center of your being, and play out your role!


    From an interview with Ram Dass

    REDWOOD: You mentioned taking the mushrooms as a good choice. When all is said and done, what do you now feel are the pluses and the minuses of taking mind-altering plants and chemicals?



    RAM DASS: It is a method of spiritual development. It certainly served me that way. The minuses are that the cultural overlay to drugs is paranoia and recreational use. It’s too bad, because they are an avatar.



    REDWOOD: What is an avatar and how does this relate to psychedelics?



    RAM DASS: An avatar, in Hinduism, is a form of God as the preserver taking birth. Vishnu, the preserving force, incarnates on earth as a being like Ram or Krishna. The avatar comes to slay the demons, and to bring back dharma, the rule of justice and law. Avatars are forms that awaken us to the possibility of the divine in human life. Psychedelics did that for many people, including me. They reawakened spirituality, the reconnected us to those other planes of who we are, to our number two and number three. So they were avatars, but avatars that came in a form we as Westerners could recognize. “Better living through chemistry.”

  19. how dare wikpedia have the audacity to call me a lifeless, ethically bankrupt, hendonistic, junkie. I prefer "sewer rat".

    I want pain, i want pleasure.
     
  20. ....an avatar can also be a person, such a jesus or you even.
