Example text

From all the desire that a virgin cannabis princess builds, from all the beauty it invokes in trying to charm the bees towards it. What fine honey that must be! --But alas, If it HAD TO be grown in a closet, it’s not really HOME-grown. One of the most frustrating norms in the world is the degree to which we can't be open about our actions and or ideas. This it the most heart breaking thing about many societies, and an easy way of determining whether the place or relationship you are in is good or not.

I heard later from a noted underground Jerusalem Kabbalist the idea that marijuana is only a fixing for Kayin (Cain) souls, those rooted in the universe of chaos, the folks that Robert Anton Wilson would call Neophiles. The passion for the new, the instability and ennui can benefit from the effect of cannabis. Souls from the universe of order, Hevel (Abel) souls do not benefit nessesarily from the shake up of Johny Blaze, usually tending to become uncomfortable, tired, paranoid, or otherwise disturbed when smoked out.

An old Kabbalistic tradition is brought down by R’ Nachman of Breslov, about the power of every kind of Grass/Herb. Each one has its’ own unique song, its’ own unique power to heal; and its own star, its own angel, telling it to grow. He elaborates: If you do something, and it works, consistantly, you might think that it’s because of that thing that you did that the success happened, and take for granted that it’s going to work that way forevever. The assumption that every time I push this social button, the function will be consistant: that’s idolatry.
