Does marijuana help you?
Bored With Toking
I stated smoking weed and hash when I was in my late 20s, and quit in my early 30s because they didn't open me to the spirituality I was seeking. The good thing was I started meditating which led to my "quitting". After I "quit" I smoked up about four times but was almost immediately bored, so I just let pot go completely. Then I met a Zen Teacher, took on a lifetime of meditation and service, and eventuallly experienced enlightenment. Today I would not even consider using again. Why spend hours bored, when I can meditate for 30 minutes, then spend my day in ever deepening awareness of the gift each person and moment is in my life?
