“If drugs could make one realize God, then God is not worthy of being God.”

Baba then asked if many young people in America were taking drugs, such as LSD. Robert [Dreyfuss] said yes, and Baba said, “Tell those that are, that if drugs could make one realize God, then God is not worthy of being God.”

Baba told Robert imperatively to discontinue taking drugs and to tell others not to take them. “No drugs,” he gestured very sternly several times. Baba amplified this by stating at length:

Many people in India smoke hashish and ganja — they see colors and forms and lights. It makes them elated, but this elation is only temporary; it is a false experience. It gives only experience of illusion — it heightens illusion — and serves as simply another veil over Reality, taking one farther away from it.

Read God Speaks again and again, until you feel it singing in your veins! You have had enough of words; tell me what your heart wants.

What you need is conviction. There are three types of conviction: readingGod Speaks can give you intellectual conviction; this is the first type. But as God exists, you must see Him. Seeing Him everywhere brings conviction through sight. You see Him in all things, everywhere, as the infinite Ocean of Effulgence. You see God in everyone and everything. This is the beginning of real longing — to become one with the Beloved, God. Once you have this experience there will be no more worries and nothing can disturb you.

The fulfillment of the longing for union with God is to become God. This is the third and highest type of conviction.

This is the only real experience. This is very, very difficult and very, very few get this experience. Although it is so difficult, yet it is so easy; if you pulverize yourself into dust at my feet and surrender your all to me. This “all” is your desires, good and bad, high and low. Surrender all to me, and do exactly as I tell you. If you do as I have told you to do, with firm determination, then if God exists, you must see God. I will help you to see me one day as I really am.

Tell those who indulge in these drugs [LSD, marijuana, and other types] that it is harmful physically, mentally and spiritually, and that they should stop the taking of these drugs. Your duty is to tell them, regardless of whether they accept what you say, or if they ridicule or humiliate you, to boldly and bravely face these things. Leave the results to me; I will help you in my work.

… You are to bring my message to those ensnared in the drug-net of illusion that they should abstain, that the drugs will bring more harm than good. I send my love to them.
