What does not lead to spirituality #1


Katherine Kerstin wrote about Albert Hoffman who discovered LSD back in 1943, who recently died at the age of 102. LSD was initially thought to be a window to the soul (and as a truth serum for interrogation, treatment for depression etc.) Read her article for more. But what stuck me were her concluding comments:

As with all attempts to imitate the Sacred, however, this one fell short. Most of LSD’s adherents soon realized that the drug-induced explosion of color and euphoria—or its alternative vision of unspeakable darkness—was just a distraction from the real “medicine for the soul.” That comes from genuine spirituality, and from family, friends, mutual obligations, and other sweetnesses of ordinary life.

What exactly is spirituality is a question that is worth considering?
