When it comes to whatever substances may elevate one spiritually, I look for post facto evidence of spiritual behavior. Has the person promoting said substance demonstrated qualities that I would equate with higher spiritual living?
I'm not seeing that this month with Daniel, as he seems to have no qualms about dropping discussions whenever he so chooses. Normally, I would look past such behavior, but when one is an Author of the Month here, and one who seems to be promoting a substance for "spiritual" purposes such behavior is concerning, especially since younger people will look to 50-something Daniel as a role model.
This, coming from one who writes, "What we require now is more like a metamorphosis, where we consciously transform our existing infrastructure from within and without, utilising archaic techniques and postmodern technologies to bring about a polar reversal of values and behaviour."
Are we to surmise that the "metamorphosis" and "polar reversal" involves dispensing with basic communication then? This kind of top-down talk doesn't work whenever one insists on ignoring the basics of ground-up growth.
I'm not so sure about the necessity of conflating ayahuasca with neo-environmentalism either and, as he said at the front end, "2012". These are all separate issues and while, perhaps, aya may bring people closer to the ecological concerns of the present day, this is hardly a feeling that it unique to such a substance. The whole world is waking up to that sobering truth. There's your top-down consciousness elevation: [www.bbc.com]
