I. The Entheogen
The leaves are wet beneath my tired body as I lay here, sleeping deep in the
forest. I have journeyed to the heart of this forest with the cannabis that will unite
me with the Divine one – who is the light and truth of who we really are. Reaching
beyond the boundaries of true consciousness, I discover the spirit; the peace
required through that the Maker has given us to know; the true role of this natural
entheogen – cannabis — is to provide light and closeness uninterrupted from any
static or interference. The moon dances across the night sky as I fall deeper into a
trance. This message of awareness received from our Maker became clearer as
experiences surfaced, those of which were meant to teach the importance of peace
through understanding and closeness with the Divine – thus, making these
messages imprimaturs of wisdom and deeper thought. Every seventh year, I retreat
to the forest with the entheogen to summon the Divine One and manifest the truth.
It is there that I receive the visions of the Divine and our Maker pulling me further
into understanding all that is, free from confusing messages and thought. The
epiphanies completed their uncovering in the last dreams of the forty-ninth year
revealing the truth in full meant to bring peace to the world.
II. The Revelation
On the seventh day of the seventh month of the seventh year of the
enthiogen, I dreamed of Shennong, Wugushen and the three Kings searching
nature for sacred cannabis. I met the Red Emperor along the banks of a river and
observed the collection of plants. In the dream, as if immortal, my being morphed
as time moved rapidly to that of the Wushang Biyao and the meetings of the
Perfected Immortals. There the ancient Taoist ceremony of smoking cannabis to
center around the Maker was shown to me by Yang Xi and Lady Wei Haucun.
Himself immortal in my dream, Yang Xi revealed that cannabis nurtured the
Shangqing scriptures and is essential to the shujia knowledge of the future. I then
traveled in my dream to goddess Magu at a time when cannabis was being gathered
on the seventh day of the seventh month. There, I was dressed in silk and sat
entranced at holy banquets where, during séance, it was exposed to me by Magu
and shujia Wei the future where cannabis will unite religions then at war.
III. The Clearing
In early March of the fourteenth year, the night moon full as I sat silently in
a meadow, I was again transformed after an angry confrontation with my father
and brother. My soul ravaged by the conflict, I fell fast asleep and dreamed that I
walked into a nearby field where I was visited by a woman who gave to me a drink
mixed with sacred cannabis and spices, which I consumed. Thereafter, I was
infused with energy and happiness. My anger was gone. I was reinvigorated. The
burden of my sinful anger removed from me, my thoughts were at peace and my
soul was filled with ambition. As I was transformed, before me was a stone
platform on which were the Four Vedas and the ancient Atharvaveda texts
surrounded by cannabis. People celebrating with bright colored clothing were
assembled around the platform. As I walked toward it, I was hugged by the
woman who had given me the drink. She pointed to the ancient Atharvaveda and
revealed to me that cannabis is the most holy of plants. I consumed more of the
drink after she showed me how to make it. I rejoiced with her and the others
dressed in bright colors. Then, I was suddenly released from the dream hearing the
voices of my father and brother trying to wake me. We forgave each other as I told
them of the clearing of my soul. I then prepared the drink as I had learned from the
woman. Together taking the holy sacrament, we were at peace far from the
conflagration with our beings cleared and spirits fulfilled.
IV. The Healing
Ravaged by fever, my thoughts raced. I could see figures above me placing
their hands upon me and praying. Restless, I could not move to escape the illness
that had consumed my body. Suddenly, a calm voice interrupted those
surrounding me. They moved away as the voice moved closer. His gentle hand
took mine as he touched my head with oil. My racing thoughts stopped, and I was
immediately at peace. He then lifted my head and placed oil on my tongue praying
that the fever gripping me would be removed from my body. At that moment, I
felt the spirit enter me. I fell fast asleep and dreamt the spirit showed me the holy
oil q’aneh-bosm I had been given for healing. It was cannabis along with small
amounts of myrrh, cassia, cinnamon and olive oil. I felt the spirit tell me to again
reveal the q’aneh-bosm to the world for spiritual and physical healing – to use the
holy anointing oil as it was used by the shamanic Levite priesthood to receive
revelations of the Lord. As I awoke from my dream, the pain of my illness was
gone, and I knew my calling forever was to preach healing, peace, forgiveness and
understanding through the holy oil.
V. The Awakening
In the twenty-first year on the seventh day of the seventh month, I received
revelation while in deep meditation. After consuming cannabis spiritually with my
quest for understanding ongoing, I was awakened to the suffering of others. I felt
the weight of suffering on me as I felt tears streaming down my face. Suddenly, I
became empty and condemning of those blessed with material and riches who
watched those suffering go without. It was then I knew that giving is central to our
belief. That emptiness and yearning must be countered with the good in us willing
to help others. To help without acknowledgement must be central to that which
cannabis brings as sacrament uniting us with our maker. As my tears subsided, I
felt awakened by the good of giving not for my own contentment, but for those
who are suffering and in need.
VI. The Path
While returning from the mountains in meditation upon the path in the
twenty-eighth year, I began trembling in fear. My faith shaken by the insults of
others, I was weakened and suffering. People from organized religions were
persecuting me for my belief in cannabis as sacrament. Demanding their secular
members invade temples where believers obtain sacrament and learn the ways of
peace, these persecutors relentlessly attacked with words of hatred and violence.
They destroyed the sacred cannabis sacrament angry that so many offended by
their dogmatic rituals had found peace, solace and meaning through the cannabis
entheogen. Purveyors of hate and gossipmongers chided me as I preached that
cannabis would unite all of them then at war over their advertised religious
rightness. I became weak as weapons were drawn upon those of us whose faith
rests in cannabis. As my fear peaked, Mahȃkȃla appeared and my trepidation
subsided. I consumed the cannabis sacrament and was strengthened by the
command I remain on the path that will end religious war and bring peace to all
VII. The Elevation
On the seventh day of the seventh month of the thirty-fifth year, I prayed for
guidance after consuming cannabis. As I became closer to the Divine One, I was
mired in the revelation that we must spread the word about peace, the cannabis
sacrament and the end of fighting between religions. Shaken earlier by persecution,
I again dreamt and was visited by Shennong. It was revealed to me that our efforts
must be to empower all people, to end suffering and help those in need. To that
end, we are each to elevate others in all that we do even when they may be those
who persecute us.
We must spread the word of peace and the uniting of religion through the
cannabis sacrament that has, throughout time, been central to ritual and healing.
Those who condemn us must be elevated and given the understanding that the
cannabis sacrament has been used for thousands of years in religions from Islamic
Sufism to the holy anointing oil q’aneh-bosm in Judaism and Christianity to the
bhang in Hinduism and the prescription as an entheogen in Buddhist scripture. We
must teach all the healing and spiritual powers of cannabis without any demand
upon them and reveal to them that cannabis is provided in nature and meant to
unite us in peace regardless of the Maker we respectively hold dear.
VIII. The Understanding
In the forty-second year, I was visited in dream by the goddess Magu. She
chastised me for doing that which I had condemned in others. As we together
gathered cannabis on the seventh day of the seventh month, I was told that there is
no demand in our teachings and beliefs for those who may not share our beliefs.
Understanding is not forcing a belief on others but rather understanding that each
spirit and soul is free and will make choices that should not adversely affect others
or cause suffering for them. We are not warriors but are messengers of peace
seeking to end suffering and violence. The understanding is not what we believe,
but that each has the opportunity to grow and believe on their own. We must be
cognizant of that understanding as we spread the message that peace will be
achieved through the cannabis sacrament that has been given to us.
IX. The Prophecy
On the seventh day of the seventh month of the forty-ninth year, aged in
appearance and much wiser through experience, a vision of the future was revealed
to me as I dreamt of the Perfected Immortals. In the vision was a world at peace
where there was no more war between religions. The cannabis sacrament common
to all of them in their histories was consumed by the leaders who had come
together to end what had led to deaths of millions over thousands of years. Instead
of fighting, the religions recognized that the higher powers of each of them had
insisted on peace – that peace would embrace the souls of all people – and that no
death, suffering or war was justified because of differing beliefs. As I awoke, I
was at peace knowing that suffering would someday end.
A sincere gladness for one’s maturing,
Ending one’s hatred habit,
Being able to love and to be loved,
The ability to believe, while not knowing what made the Something that lets the sun rise & set, the leaves change in Spring and Fall, or gives the birds song…
Why not invite a Something like this to be God?
The remedy for this sin is humility. We achieve humility by practicing self-denial, meekness, submission, patience, not seeking honors
The remedy is generosity, kindness, mercy, almsgiving and works of charity
The remedy is inner peace, docility, meekness, and charity. Forgive others as you wish God to forgive you.
The remedy is purity, modesty in dress, custody of the senses, thoughts, desires, speech
The practice of charity and brotherly love are remedies for this sin.
The remedy for this sin is working against our tendency to be spiritually lazy. Diligence in prayer and seeking the sacraments as well as studying scripture help.
The remedy is moderation of food and drink, sobriety, abstinence, and fasting.
