At first, this blog may seem like it's completely un-related to botanicals because it speaks a lot about dreams, which I won't get to until the 4th paragraph. What dooes this have to do with plants though? Well, a major part of the historic and cultural lore associated with using plants for whatever reason, was and still is their use as "oneirogens", or "dream inducing herbs". In todays age, as a collective there seems to be this struggle for many to break through to true awareness. Consciousness is awareness, and it has with it, different levels of insight. Plants have taught many people for centuries that there is more awareness that exist within us than we think.


Plants such as Cannabis for example, dramatically increase the amount of internal and external awareness an individual experiences in regards to their internal dialog ( their own thoughts, feelings, subconscious ). In this sense, I believe the herb makes it much more difficult for you to deceive yourself, or be deceived by others. You become aware of your own habitual auto-pilot type behaviors in life. To everyone who's induldged, you know I'm right. We have to save our planet legally, and peacefully.


What about those who question nothing though, and aren't so much aware of their own behavior, OR the fact that they don't notice? If you can related to this realization then I know that you see the truth. I believe this divoce from nature so to speak, is a form of synthetic slavery. When we choose a synthetic reality over a biological one ( an organic one ), our awareness decreases, and manipulation and deception are far more likely, and can reach epidemic proportions in their very nature. In Germany, their government embraces and acknowledges the science behind herbalism. They utilize it on a main-stream leve, including in hospitals. We need a global shift to this.


You see, we are biological creatures which are designed to live biological lives, not synthetic lives. I think there is a major mass delusional epidemic on this planet that's being caused from lack of awareness. If plants like Marijuana can open one up to intuition, and internal and external awareness, then what do man-made substances do? Could it not be possible that our health crisis on this planet is caused from money, greed, ignorance, and synthetic lifestyles over organic lifestyles? Freedom means freedom, and trying to take something away from people and not let them have it is not an example of being free.


Don't get me wrong, I like technology to a certain extent, and a lot. I'm a bit of a computer nerd but I still see the importance of abstinance every once and a while. Television, internet, radio, news media, cell phones, tablets, and prescription drugs, have replaced our true nature. Once upon a time none of these synthetic influences over our minds existed. Instead of electronics pumping imagery and ideas into our minds, and instead of pharmaceutical drugs donig god knows what to our biological circuitry, we had Pot, other plants, and nothing but our own thoughts or others, communicated directly via word of mouth, or pen and paper.


This brings me to my next point. Dreams are internal dialogs. They are essentially your brain communicating with itself. It's a state of self reflection. We can all agree that our dreams are generated by our minds right? Our awareness of these nightly occurences, I think is greatly important. As a whole, I think if our planet embraced the use of plants, instead of pills, and took a step back from this modern life, our awareness could evolve to optimal levels.


Every now and then our minds need time to just be. They need to have the nourishment of the freedom associated with original thinking. In other words, instead of ideas being pumped into our heads from electronic sources, we instead need to think freely. I think this war on plants, is more of a war on consciousness. If you take a biological creature, and try to sustain its life with un-organic man-made synthetic substances, I believe you'll only cause a cancerous mutation in that biological creature.


Plants have been studied for their effects on consciousness. A specific genre of plants which have been an interest to cultures and even scientist, are known as "oneirogens". Oneirogens are plants or substances which are thought to stimulate, enhance, or even induce dreams. Sense dreams are a form of consciousness exhibited by living beings, then they have everything to do with awareness. The notion of being in tune with our dreams, is a notion of awareness.


I think I've made enough points here for folks to start to grasp the concept that being aware, plants, and dreams go hand and hand. After all, look at the vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and phytochemicals our brains and bodies need to function properly. A mind lacking of nutrition is a mind that's not sharp, which is a mind less aware. A mind that does not think for itself because someone else is thinking for it is not a free or aware mind. What happens when you replace all organic and biological staples of life with man made alternatives?

Liminal Dreaming: Exploring Consciousness

What would happen if you took synthetic food for 30 years and watched TV constantly, vs you took plants and contemplated the meaning of life and your own awareness? Sense consciousness is awareness, I think it's absolutely critical that human beings globally wake up to the science behind medicinal and or psychoactive plants, and embrace and make their use main-stream. Our planet has got to become aware of this ever progressing war on health freedom going on today. If we keep moving forward with this attitude that human beings are the most intelligent things in the universe, more so than existence itself, then we are doomed.


We can not create things which work better than that which created us can create things. We need to embrace our dreams, as they are that critical little voice in the back of our minds which is the real YOU. Lucid dreaming is the trained ability to become aware of the fact that you are dreaming while you're dreaming. We need to embrace lucidity on a global scale in order to save this planet. Lacking in awareness is essentially the same thing as ignorance. We are ignorant to our potential as living beings.
