A BRIEF REFLECTION
Am I marching to the beat of a different drummer? I like to believe so, but perhaps not. Perhaps it is just that I have always liked being different, and being different requires no skill. You simply look around at what everyone else is doing, and do the opposite.
Being different is what kept me away from drugs when I was younger. Everyone was doing drugs. I chose not to do drugs just to be different.
Now I stay away from drugs because I know how powerful the mind is. Everything you do with drugs you can do without drugs. I say this, but I will be the first to reach for a painkiller if the pain gets too great.
I also stay away from drugs, and other intoxicants, to keep myself as pure as possible. I want to get my deposit back when I return my body to the Universe’s Rental Shop.
