What should you explore and what shouldn’t you?
Let’s start by stating what is not worth exploring before getting into the big enchiladas.
In other post we discussed the benefits of deliberately paying attention to something, to activate your exploring nature. Based on this idea, the first thing I wouldn’t suggest to explore is anything that accounts for you to be the guinea pig.
More explicitly, don’t look for experiences that require you to eat, drink or inhale something. Look for experiences where you can freely apply your attention through any of your senses, but preferably, your vision. Use your nose figuratively.
Keep your eyes (and mind) open. Focus your mindful attention or you won’t be able to activate your exploring attitude.
Drugs and alcohol are twice counterproductive, and this is not a matter of morality. They are not exploring matter because they obstruct your mind and your vision.
You can’t explore the effects of this substance because the object of exploration and the explorer are, in this case, the same thing. So, from this point of view, it is wrong to use the statement: “exploring (experimenting) with drugs”.
