I am new to this forum/network. I am 25 years old, and stumbled upon this website when searching "nocturnal emissions spiritual" in google. I have been celibate (including not masturbating/ejaculating, except for a couple rare instances) for about the last 5 years. i learned that with abstinence comes nocturnal emissions, or at least dreams provoking them. i eventually learned to wake up to it (in my dream) and hold against it, but recently i have had two nocturnal emissions, a couple weeks apart, that i didn't resist. it kind of bums me out, and i start worrying about being spiritually vulnerable, or out of touch with certain visions. But that is pointless and i stay positive, and focus from here on :) anyway, searching google brought me here. Then I wanted to search the forums for any words about cannabis. I was surprised to see only cautionary words about the negative aspects of intereacting with the plant, and no mention of the potential positives. Personally, I believe that the negative energy arises out of an imperfect relationship/use with the plant. Ideally, individuals would be free to grow purley for themselves, and the market scenario with cannabis would fade away. Similar analogy in cultivation:flower-quality. Today, the true quality of cannabis is obscured with cultivation methods driven more by desire for mass/yield and profit, than driven by letting the plant thrive in the language it understands, language of organic soil ecology :) Any pop-culture, or idea that any amount of people "should smoke cannabis" must also stop. I have been smoking cannabis for a long time, on and off since i was 17, rather continuously from age 20. When i first started smoking, I was rather blown away with how overwhelmingly psychoactive and weird it could be. I didn't understand how people could be so "chill" about it and nonchalantly suggest that others should do it in a loose social setting. Still I was very curious, because my experiences were interesting. I realized at some point that cannabis had an after-cloud that stuck with me for at least a week after getting high, that kept me from reaching anger as much. I would not get as angry over trivial things, ie cannabis helped me with anger issues. Also cannabis seemed to save me from having nightmares. Also personally for me, Cannabis has progressively taken me to a perspective where i'm more intimately aware of alcohol's destructive effects. I began seminal retention, not because i read about it somewhere, but through intuition about the effect of my actions/nonactions on the energy level i had, and thus ability to benefit form these psychoactive states. The deeper i go in my relationship with cannabis, the more my body seems to reject alcohol. I don't think cannabis is for everyone, and I am truly grateful that there are many people who will not be subject to the experience of cannabis influence. There are energies about the plant that can be hard to deal with, or lead to abstract thinking in social situations, or paranoia/misunderstanding about scenarios. But cannabis can also help with opening a window of self-clarity and discipline in times of spiritual danger. i guess it can go the other way as well. time and place for things ? back to the imperfect relationship in todays world. we need to get over the drama around the plant, over the social hype, so that it is known and used appropriately and not part of any weird power/money dynamics, and just available to those who know why they seek it. please share your thoughts, thanks.

One can achieve full and complete development without it, therefore it is not necessary. Considering how vulnerable humanity is to temptation and how easily distracted from the real work, it is advisable to avoid potential dangers. Moreover, in many places it is illegal. Why court danger, when the path is dangerous enough on its own? Therefore, we advise avoiding reliance on external substances.

addiction is a sad state and experience.
but what about earth medicine ? there is a lot more to cannabis than smoking/combusting dried flowers and getting a stiff dose of THC.
Juicing or eating raw flowers and foliage appears to be extremely beneficial to the body/mind in many ways. It is an excellent way of getting all of the CBD, terpenoids, and other nutrients without uptake of any psychoactive THC. In order for THC to be taken psychoactively it needs to be thoroughly absorbed into lipids like oil/butter, or dried and then heated. CBD is associated with anti-inflamation, anti-seizure activity, anti-psychotic effect (supposedly balances or reduces the effects of THC). I would like to suggest the culture of "smoking weed" is unaware of or out of touch with the balance, or holistic understanding of cannabis. anything can be abused. again i am not advocating people use cannabis, but i am suggesting there is more to cannabis than addictive drug behavior.

i don't know much about Samael Aun Weor, and wikipedia may not be an accurate source, but i found this on a wiki article about him :

Samael Aun Weor taught that all the plants of nature are living Elemental Spirits, similarly to Paracelsus and many other esoteric teachers. He states that it is the Elemental Spirits who cure, not simply the 'cadavers of the plants'. Plants should be treated as living beings, harvested at the proper hours etc. He stated that the Elementals of all plants are aspects of The Divine Mother in the form of Mother Nature. In 'Occult Medicine and Practical Magic' he spoke about the healing methods of the Kogi Mamas, who diagnose sicknesses by means of clairvoyance.[100]

The Consciousness imprisoned within the multiple elements that constitute the ego is limited in its processes by virtue of its own imprisonment.

Egoistic Consciousness comes in a comatose state with hypnotic hallucinations very similar to those of someone under the influence of any drug.

We can present this matter in the following way: Hallucinations from the egoistic Consciousness are the same as hallucinations brought about by drugs.

It is obvious that these two types of hallucinations have their original causes in the abominable Kundabuffer organ (Read chapter 17 of The Great Rebellion).

Obviously, drugs annihilate alpha waves. Then, unquestionably, the intrinsic connection between mind and brain is lost. This, in fact, results in total failure.

A drug addict turns vice into religion. Being misled, he thinks he experiences what is real under the influence of drugs. Unaware that the extra-perceptions produced by marijuana, L.S.D., morphine, hallucinogenic mushrooms, cocaine, heroin, hashish, tranquilizers in excess, amphetamine, barbiturates, etc., etc., are merely hallucinations produced by the abominable Kundabuffer organ.

Drug addicts devolve and degenerate in time. In the end they are submerged permanently within the infernal worlds. -Samael Aun Weor, The Great Rebellion

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
