For a lot of people, smoking marijuana can mean a lot things, it stirs up different emotions whether or not they are regular smokers. For some it brings back sweet memories, for some it’s a part of daily life, for others, it marks adventurous younger days. For an interesting demographic of them, it leaves a mark. It has the power to introduce, welcome, and open people to a unique wisdom, a form of eternal truths for those who dare seek internal meditation.
One of the most significant marijuana truth seeking smokers known to date is the great Bob Marley. Through his music he inspired many people and became the voice of a generation. Since Marley was a devout practitioner of Rastafarian, he viewed using ‘ganja’/marijuana as a holy sacrament. Now the use of marijuana throughout Bob Marley’s life was clearly not the only factor for blessing him with the profound wisdom he had, but many marijuana users can agree that when reading his quotes, it will resonate deeply with them, as if they too, had been whispered these truths at one point.
About money and riches:
“Money is numbers and numbers never end. If it takes money to be happy, your search for happiness will never end.”
When asked by an interviewer if he is a rich man in the sense that does he have lots of possessions and money in the bank he responded “Possessions make you rich? I don’t have that kind of richness, my richness is life, forever.”
About love and being alive:
“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.”
“Love would never leave us alone.”
“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.”
“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just have to find out the ones worth suffering for.”
“Overcome the devils with a thing called love.”
“The people who were trying to make this world worse are not taking the day off. Why should I?”
About governments and strength:
“Herb, herb is a plant. I mean herbs are good for everything. Why, why these people who want to do so much good for everyone, who call themselves governments and this and that. Why them say you must not use the herb? Them just say, ‘no, you mustn’t use it, you mustn’t use it because it will make you rebel.’ Against what?”
“You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.”
“Light up the darkness.”
May the wisdom of Bob Marley continue to live on into the future and may all other wisdom seekers find truth in ganja.
