Greetings again my son, much blessings and hope that you will be able to climb, some of the mountains of Iyaperience, which I was able to climb, and which I am still climbing as I live from day to day, and as I move on in age.
I call you son because I am a Father of many sons, and it is possible that your are young enough to be my son. If you were born after the year 1976, then my youngest son is older than you.
I have already told the I, that the rivers that you are now crossing, I have already crossed more than fifty yours ago. Which really means, that the things that you are saying and doing, I have ready said and done, when I was a young person as yourself.
When one evade a question, is when one avoids answering a factual question, which could lead to better reasoning, and could sharpen the mind, of both the person who ask the question, as well as the person who answers the question. Because if the question is answered in a sober and honest manner, then the reasoning will be able to continue, without unneccesary contradions, which is only a waste of energy.
I am aware from your responses, that it appears that no one upon this earth, will be able to convince you, that it is better not to smoke, any external substances, that it is not good to suck smoke into you lungs, and that your lungs was created for you to breathe in freash air, which is indeed the breath of life. You must be aware that as soon as you suck that smoke into your lungs, you must let it out back immediately, or else there will be some choking and coughing, because your lungs is in continuos demand for fresh air.
You can drink some water and don't have to let it it out right away, and there are so many things that you can consume internally, which you do not have to let out immediately as it is taken in to the structure, but as for smoking, that smoke must be let out right away or else there are going to be some internal problems. I do hope we can agree on this one.
Now let me answer your questions as best as I can.
About a year ago I have posted a post on this forum asking, When did mankind started smoking because I wanted to know, but I did not get an answer although there was some discussions about it, so I really do not know, and I do not know how long ago that was, and even if I knew, I still think that smoking is not good for human consumption.
Since I do not know who was the first person who smoked whatever external substances, into there lungs, then it is clear that I also do not know, who told that person to do it, but who ever that person was and who ever told him to do that, that does not make smoking good for human internal consumption.
The reason that I think that the first person started smoking, was just an experiment like when people started cooking and other things which we do good and bad.
I am not related to Adam and Eve so I can not tell you any thing about them, as far as I am concerned they never existed.
I would not have spoken to you are any one without having practical Iyaperiences of the subject under discussion.
As far as I have learned from practical Iyaperience, all smoke is dangerous and none of them is good for internal human consumption.
People do not live to be extra old as a result of what they eat but as a result of their state of mind, and what time it was ordained for them to make the great transition, based on the powetrs and directions of mother nature and father time.
I do think that the healing powers which can be had from all herbs not just one herb, can be had from juicing of the herbs or from boiling tea, or cooking it with discretion in our foods.
I do not think that our children should be taught to smoke any of the herbs upon the face of this earth, since the herbs are for healing, let it be for healing, instead of it be for smoking, which is a social adaption as well as addiction, make the juice or boil the tea, and feed it to our children if they are sick.
You have given me a basket to carry water from the river, you should have known better than to have given your Elder a basket to carry water. When I speak to you about smoking and you are telling me about the weather, you are really out of line, because we do not put clothes inside our lungs, it is the smoke which we are pulling inside our lungs. That is what we are talking about.
However you are totally forgiven again, and I have decided to return your basket with the above seeds and fruits of knowledge, as well as some fruits of humble standing. Be at peace with yourself and your village and give my reasoning some very deep thoughts. It may really take you ten are fifteen years, to be able to drink the waters of realization which is flowing inside my reasoning. I wish you some rivers of revelation and the best of everything.
Again I send many Oceans of blesings with tolerance and self determination
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART.
