Using drugs for non-medical purposes
Synonyms: Taking recreational drugs
Claim: Drugs cannot compare with the real achievement of higher states of consciousness. Using the parable of Jesus, some people enter into the house through windows and they are thieves. A thief does not dwell in the house, but enters it, robs it, and in the end receives punishment. Drugs, at best open a window to the astral plane. They break the etheric wall, and force consciousness through this crack into the astral world, which is the plane of delusions -- a fantastic world full of glamorous, illusive colours and forms. No drug can elevate consciousness higher than the astral world and whoever is caught there cannot easily return into the light of reality.
