We all have certain moral spheres that we abide by and throughout our lives we come across situations in which we see others acting in a way we consider wrong and in that moment we feel what I would describe as a negative empathetic sense of moral turpitudeā€¦

I have found that often when I'm elevated on my comfortable level I still get incredibly anxious and frustrated when I come across these situations, and others too, sometimes even without fully understanding the exact reason why. I think that smoking brings my moral compass more in line with what the universe would dictate, and that the way to judge what should be right and what should be wrong is just to FEEL it. 99% of people know when something is wrong on a global level, inherently evil things can be recognized by almost any if not any culture at all in the world. I can FEEL the imbalance when someone is talking about someone in a malicious way, or when a child is disciplined for something stupid, or when a child ISN'T disciplined for something they did that was terrible, or whatever, I could go on forever because it's life. It's everywhere, every day, and this highdea suggests that weed possibly helps us figure out what is right and what is wrong on somewhat of a subversive level in regards to the established system rooted in christianity and western culture in general.

i know what you mean, you become more conscious of the cause and effect relationships don't you that you usually don't give any thought to.. i wouldn't say that there's a universal moral code outside our heads tho, if we weren't here then there'd be no right and wrong because there's just no right and wrong

Not outside our heads, but I think there is a universal code within our heads, and that everyone has a lot in common when it comes to what we feel is right and wrong. Each of us has our own perception of what is right and wrong on a global level, and when we act in a way that is in line with our own view of what is right we feel better about ourselves acting in a way we deem morally responsible, and vice versa that we feel a certain trepidation when we act out of line, I'm kind of drawing an association with the concept of karma here but not physically manifested, moreso psychologically
