mean drugs, alcohol and all the things that make you become an addict,
make a slave out of you, also blur your vision, damage your brain
cells, and impair your ability to think, to see, and to do things
dearly. These are intoxicants.
can slowly be changed, but should also be abstained from. We ought
to be intoxicated by God's power and not by these cheap substitutes.
Formerly, we were allowed to do that, or we might do that in ignorance,
because we are unhappy and we are craving for something, but we don't
know what it is. We feel so empty inside, and we are unhappy despite
all the money and civilised comforts. We feel somewhat unsatisfied,
so we look for cigarettes, for drugs, for gambling, for sex, or whatever
in order to satisfy ourselves. We think that we will satisfy ourselves,
but the more we use them, the more we feel exhausted, empty and meaningless.
The more you take, the more you crave for, and the more you feel abused
in body and mind. The real "intoxication" will substitute
for all of these, and make you satisfied, and you won't even want
to do all these things.
If I am taking medications under a doctor's order, can I still be
a vegetarian and be initiated?
Yes, sure, why not? Medication is not drugs. What I mean by drugs,
you know, are the drugs that your country forbids. I also forbid them,
for your sake, because it ruins your life, costs a lot of money, and
makes you a dependent wretch. You should walk like a king, like a
God on this earth, and bless the whole world with your greatest power
and wisdom inside.
Why can't we drink alcohol since it is used in medicine?
Drinking affects our mind. It makes it cloudy and confused, and numbs
our nerves to some extent. So, I do not care how good it affects you
on the surface, because it harms your brain, and we have to rely on
our thinking system to reach enlightenment. The more we numb it, the
more confused we will become and we won't be able to think straight.
