Alcohol is more Powerful than Ayahuasca

HM Grove

A few years ago, a close friend of mine said something that I would never forget. He claimed that alcohol is more powerful than Ayahuasca. Ever since then, I haven’t really been able to take my mind off of this remark.

To the average Joe’s ear, this comment would sound quite strange and nonsensical. Ayahuasca is an extremely powerful psychedelic herbal tea. The effects can last twice as long as LSD and the experience is beyond intense.

After consuming Ayahuasca, you will vomit, shit, and piss until your body is rid of toxin, and then you will forgo the most intense, frightening, beautiful, and outlandish experience of your life.

So how can alcohol have this substance beat? It’s not about how the substance alters your mental state, but how it morphs your spiritual state. Ayahuasca will take the deepest and darkest pieces of who you are and present it to you on a silver platter.

There are things your mind buries deep in the archives of your brain, and Ayahuasca will unearth it and slam it in your face until you accept whom you really are.

This process can be excruciating because most of us hate who we are, and wear masks made of golden smiles and false intention. We don’t know this, because for the most part, we strive to become something we’re not.

Ayahuasca will forcefully show you who you really are, and you will scream, cry, and literally uncontrollably shit your pants for the 7th time in a row. It’s best to do this naked and in a jungle, like an animal that just ate a funky mushroom.

As for alcohol, it is an extremely powerful force on your spiritual state, far too powerful for your own good. When consuming alcohol, you are fabricating that golden mask you wear.

In fact, when you consume alcohol, you morph into a completely different person. Hell, people will even acknowledge this by saying words like, “Drunk me” or “I’m a different person when I’m drunk”.

There is heavy truth to these statements. Alcohol helps mask who you are by crafting you into a stranger to yourself. One of two results may occur when you are totally trashed, face down in some strangers butt, not remembering who you are.

You’re ego will either take a joyride, or you will drown in pity. Alcohol is fuel for your ego. When you’re drunk, the stranger you become takes the wheel and feels on top of the world.

In fact, if you remain drunk for the better half of your days, the stranger beds’ down, and takes over you. You will become this stranger, because all the stranger wants is to be free.

You are a host for the stranger that drives your body when alcohol is heavily consumed. Or, the stranger can come out angry, sad, and soaking in pity. This will trick your mind into thinking you are pathetic, when in reality; you’re not at all.

This stranger is angry because it’s been locked away in the nothing for a very long time. When you drink, the stranger latches on to its host and sucks the constructive pride from your soul.

Alcohol is a portal; a gateway for these strangers to emerge and occupy the weakened individuals that rely on its effect. In a spiritual sense, alcohol is a weapon to weaken your fortress, while Ayahuasca will fortify your fortress and build you into the real you.

You will undergo pain, mental agony, and nightmarish visions, but come out as the real you. Alcohol feels good; it comforts you into becoming a stranger to yourself.

Comfort is dangerous, because it is with discomfort that you will feel the need to become better than you are. Be good to yourself and care for the real you. Drink water, eat green stuff, and breathe fresh air.

Stay beautiful while you’re at it.
