Questions and Answers
What about the drugs?
Can they take you closer to your Will and integrity?
Elio. Drugs have worked to temporarily block out your external reality – your identification with a world which puts you in a state of expectation and dependence, but at the same time they substitute one dependence with another, putting you in a state of suspension from which you would not ever want to return.
Their function is to make you realize the unreality of the world that governs your entire life.
The ideal drug, if such a thing exists, would consent to give attention to the ordinary activities and daily obligations that you have to carry out, and at the same time to maintain an attention to an internal world that allows you to not identify and get lost in a world of appearances and shadows.
