The war on drugs is and always has been a war on consciousness. This is an examination of the benefits of the drugs that the government has chosen to vilify for years.
Here’s an excerpt from the video:
A major benefit I found with MDMA was an overwhelming feeling of reverence towards the subconscious filters and feelings which propel the actions we commit; a sort of empathy for ones own inner-thoughts, and a sense of catharsis by expelling the inner dialogue which helps and hurts our life. A bodily chemical reaction that flows from the chest that cries out to remove the shame which keeps us in a state of fear—fear of embarrassment, ostracism, and dislike—a state which in many cases isn’t solidified through reality but is a projection of the inner disdain one has of one’s self.
This disdain was built by the trauma experienced from young age to adulthood, and has led to emotional filters which guard us from feeling something real—because true empathy, love, and compassion can be used against us, and this is out of a fear that we will once again have those parts of us manipulated. Because of that we bubble-wrap our true emotions to guard ourselves, which leaves ourselves isolated and prevents the connection that we’ve always wanted. It removes the shackles that prevent honesty, because honesty can only be accomplished when we begin to remove the hatred we have of ourselves.
Every lie we say about ourselves is an omission or re-engineering of facts to mitigate the awful aspects of ourselves—whether those aspects are awful or not is subjective in some sense, but we our afraid of sharing because we are filled with guilt and fear. As a result, when that person we were dishonest with falls in love with us, or express a deep connection, we don’t accept it because they’ve fallen in love with an archetype of you rather than the true you. You feel as if they don’t actually love you because they don’t know who you are—this becomes worst when you realize they probably did the same re-engineering of self when they spoke with you.
How does this relate to MDMA? Once you take enough it’s hard to be dishonest or non-empathetic in that state; at least as long as you were actually capable of empathy before, and have the critical thinking ability to interpret the many emotions and memories which will—whether you like it or not—flood your mind.
