The Natural Mind by Andrew Weil is a book about humans and their interaction with an altered state of consciousness To find a way to help the drug problem the problem with humans and psychoactive drugs Weil explores the positive aspects of drugs His stand is not that drugs are good but that when a person alters their consciousness it is not all bad Three of his concepts in this book really stuck to me In The Natural Mind he displays that man has a natural drive to reach an altered state of consciousness also that drug use and drug abuse are two totally different things and should not be mistaken Another concept that Weil makes clear clear in this book is that in order to get control of the drug problem we need to start a new belief system about drugs and find a new program to teach people about mind altering drugs First of all one of Weils concepts in the book is mans natural drive to reach an altered state of consciousness At early ages children play silly games in an attempt to alter their conscious state Children spin around as fast as they can as I remember doing as a child does so they can feel dizzy for a brief moment When watching a child do this it is normal to see the children wobbling around as they try to walk It is similar to seeing an ECU student walking out of a club downtown after having too much to drink As children get older they advance to household and school supplies to alter their consciousness and then they move to an underground drug circle A student can swipe a bottle of rubber cement and bring it to the playground during recess This student and the friends he chooses to be a part of this drug experiment will meet in the corner of the playground or under the jungle gym
