    I smoked only a little pot when I was young.  I was a young Republican and too uptight and frightened.  I smoked pot a little bit more between marriages, but again not much because I had two young children and didn't want them to do drugs. 

    After my husband died and with children off on their own, I bought a few ounces.  I also got some shrooms.  I took the shrooms 5 times.  Why?  Partly because of ZMM, and partly because of other books that stated that drugs had always been a part of the spiritual experience.  I was approaching 50 when this phase happened.  Midlife crisis, I guess.  It was good, very good.  I gave up the shrooms when I spotted arrogance in my attitude.  I gave up the pot for meditation because I don't want the entry point into these experiences to be only the drugs. 

    Here is an experience sans drugs.  It was about 10 years ago. 

    I was driving on a typical Connecticut country road with great hills and curves.  I had the road to myself.  Suddenly I knew that the Divine could experience this drive if I just let go (whatever 'let go' means).  So for some miles I was a witness to a drive that was sparkling with light and sublime.  (These words are not the experience, but the best words I could find.)   I realized that all we do is a manifestation of the Goddess, the Divine, Existence (you pick the word).  I don't really know what this means, BUT...
    - I know, it doesn't sound like much, but it was, and I want to remember. 

    All I do is talk about myself, it's so pathetic.
