The Holy Returning

T

KECJAK!

Many mystics believe
that higher states of consciousness
cannot be achieved through
the use of drugs.

Many scientists believe
that mystical experiences
exist only in the brain.

The question both groups are not asking is:
Which came first: the brain wave or the blown mind?

KECJAK!

Children instinctively challenge
the narrowness of consciousness
by spinning under blue skies
synchronizing their subatomic bodies
with the earthly and universal realms.

They whirl dervishly in defiance
of the oppressive restraint
of decorum and inhibition.

They intuitively practice
yogic breath retention
hyperventilating their way to
a pranayamic euphoria.

DRUM PULSE

After thirst, hunger and sex
the fourth inherent human drive
is to intoxicate
to seek altered
states of consciousness.

On all continents
across all cultures
throughout all of human history
we have been hacking
our genetic programming
by ingesting entheogenic agents
provided to us by our holy mother.

Holy, Holy, Holy
The worrd is holy
The body is holy
The soul is holy
The returning is holy

KECJAK!

(Yes, this was inspired by Allen Ginsberg and Patti Smith. Bordering on plaigarism? I don’t think so but I’m open to push back.)
