>> Drugs. What are your opinions and effects on all 3 bodies of the following drugs : Heroin, crack, cocaine, ecstasy, speed, cannabis, LSD, Magic mushrooms. <<
The pharmaceuticals like crack, cocaine, ecstasy, speed, etc., all damage the physical body and tend to dis-integrate the three bodies in a negative manner. They are VERY destructive to the silver cord that connects the astra-mental body to the physical body and equally destructive to the violet cord that connects the mental body to the astral body. Just plain bad news, as far as I can see.
Heroin and LSD tend to cause a separation of the astra-mental body from the physical body and are less negative in their overall effects but still have a negative impact upon the silver cord that connects the astra-mental body to the physical body. They do not directly damage the violet cord.
The hallucinogens that nature provides, such as cannabis, amanita, peyote, etc., are another matter entirely. Some do have toxic effects (and others, tonic effects) upon the physical body, but these are usually not permanent since they arise from an organic substance that the body is naturally able to process. They do NOT damage either the silver or violet cords. Nor do they induce dis-integration. Instead, they *loosen* the bonds between the three bodies without damaging them. They organically force open the senses of the astral and mental bodies, much like eating some Chinese hot mustard forces open your sense of smell.
The great disadvantage of pharmaceuticals and organic hallucinogens is that you have no control over their effects and duration other than the minor control over dosage. You can't simply turn them off when you desire it, nor does it enable you to replicate the same states of consciousness without depending upon the substance to induce it.
However, you can learn to self-induce any state reachable through the use of pharmaceuticals and organic hallucinogens (plus a few billion states they can't possibly reach) AND be in absolute control of every aspect of it.
My best to you,
