There has always been an ongoing debate between the benefits and drawbacks of cannabis. Some argue that it is addictive and makes users lazy and unmotivated, while others claim that it can open your mind, enhance creativity, and even promote general well-being. The truth is that both can be true at the same time. Any mind-altering substance comes with a certain level of risk based on preexisting health conditions and the underlying reasons for using it.
However, with moderation and a positive mindset, cannabis can have untold benefits. In addition to the benefits listed above, cannabis even has the power to strengthen your relationships. First, let’s look at how cannabis affects your perceptions and way of thinking:
What Does Cannabis Do to Your Mind and Body?
Much like meditation, cannabis has the potential to give you a sense of oneness with the Universe. It gives you the power to see beyond your normal senses and embrace the fabric that binds all things together. If you’ve ever tried cannabis, you’re probably familiar with what I’m talking about. Cannabis can tune out negative energy so that your mind and body can experience reality in a completely different way.
Without activities like meditation or occasional cannabis consumption, we take our daily lives for granted. We remain stuck in the world as we perceive it. Our mind is closed off to the endless possibilities of the infinite Universe. However, when we practice these kinds of activities, we expand our minds to take in the world as part of us. In essence, we become one with all things, both mentally and physically.
What Does Cannabis Have to Do With Relationships?
When you start to feel a sense of oneness with the Universe, you feel connected with everything and everyone around you. You are connected to the air you breathe, the trees you see outside your window, and even the strangers you pass on the street. Everything is connected as part of the fabric of the universe.
Unfortunately, we don’t always look at things this way. In fact, we are constantly looking for ways to separate and isolate ourselves. Our senses of sight and touch make us see differences rather than similarities. This, in turn, blinds us to all of the connected energy around us.
With cannabis, you have the ability to overcome this illusion of separation. Your mind becomes open to the idea of an interconnected Universe, teeming with life and potential. Once you realize that you are connected to everything else, you start to see all things as an extension of yourself.
The idea of connected universal energy has the power to strengthen your relationships. I’m not just talking about friendships or romantic relationships, but your relationships with all living things! You’re connected to the homeless man begging for change on the street. You’re connected to the dog that greets you at the door. You’re connected to your friends, family, and casual acquaintances. You’re even connected to people on the other side of the planet that you’ve never even met!
Harnessing the Knowledge of Universal Energy
Once cannabis opens your mind to these relationships, they take on a new significance in your life. If another person is merely an extension of you (and you are an extension of them), you are more inclined to radiate positive energy toward them. You may not always receive positivity in return, but that’s to be expected. Most people are unaware of universal energy and the interconnected nature of life.
But you shouldn’t radiate positive energy and strengthen your relationships in the hope of getting something in return (though the benefits will be great). Instead, you will do it out of a natural inclination to embrace the oneness you’ve discovered. The knowledge itself is a kind of power that pushes you to make positive choices that have a ripple effect.
So, if you’re feeling isolated from others, don’t be afraid to unlock the power of cannabis. While cannabis is merely a means to an end, it is a great way to open your mind and literally feel the oneness of the universe. In turn, you’ll find that you feel closer to others than ever before!
