Ok, marijuana isn't a mudra but I came to realize it has powerful effects on the energy pathways AYP stimulates. I have read a lot about the entheogenic powers of hallucinogens. Prior to starting my AYP practices I had found cannabis seemed to enhance an inner voice which seems somewhat similar to the witness. Since it is created by a chemical in the brain I've always had trouble trusting that voice but it has often opened me up to different ways of viewing areas I've been stuck. Since starting SBP/DM I am finding marijuana too stimulating and the witness seems to be telling me to self pace that addition. I'm just curious if you've had experiences with marijuana and its effects on the witness. Have you found marijuana helpful or harmful?

I'd recommend reading Lessons 29 and 307, in case you haven't read them yet.

Now that EC is active, marijuana kicks up the bliss in me. When I’m out with friends, I’ve always got to weigh this fact. Pot smoking may be the reason you have been unstable as of late, so like with any additional “practice” that it courting overload, you should parse it back or eliminate it all together.

Thank you BlueRaincoat and Dogboy. I reviewed the two lessons above and the teachings make sense. Being someone who is highly interested in finding the "truth", marijuana does seem to unlock some parts of my brain that help me go deeper. It is a trap as I don't always trust the content, especially if it doesn't fit with a non altered state. When I posted some concerns awhile back about feeling too much energy and almost being in a panic, it made me worry a little AYP is unlocking similar centers in my brain. As Yogani points out in the lessons, developing the Witness helps to create stability during those times. I appreciate your ongoing support.
