{July 23, 2013}   Discerning the truth about GHB

We are born to die that is our naked fate. Hence, our lives are fragile. Seeing the truth of this shared humanity sharpens the perspective that every minute lived, is but a gift.
If you are a predator (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-500202_162-57319557/date-rape-drug-death-family-still-seeks-clues/), intentionally administering GHB to the drinks of others
(http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2003/02/02/the-perfect-crime.html),
then you deliberately seek to accelerate the death of others for the potential for a GHB overdose is extremely high. If you are self-administering then you play Russian roulette with your life because the range of a safe dose is extremely narrow. http://www1.villanova.edu/villanova/studentlife/health/promotion/goto/resources/drugs/ghb.html

If you think it’s trendy to take GHB then picture yourself: unconscious, breathing very slowed and so is your heart rate, you’re experiencing aspiration due to vomit, and you have convulsions and, then can enter a coma. Your friends decide to turn you on your side to sleep it off because they are afraid they might be busted or blamed. So no one does anything to preserve your precious life.

You give your power away and put yourself at the mercy of stoned friends and bystanders when what is needed when over dosing on GHB is a miracle. What if those friends are self-administering GHB and incoherent? What is so cool about this experience? Please blog us.

But, if you’re a thrill seeker who likes to live on the edge, isn’t the fact that you are born to die enough of a thrill? Why not ride it out until you die of natural causes? Why put yourself at risk by compromising circumstances where another individual, maybe someone you know or maybe a complete stranger, or a predator, decides your fate, and accelerates your death?

In every second you have a choice. Choose yourself rather than GHB.

I go over it, and over it, in my mind because a predator spiked my daughter’s drink with a massive dose of GHB and she went into a GHB-induced coma and died from acute GHB poisoning. Her supposed male friend, Abstract Rude, his manager and his band, were too high and too afraid (cowards) to call 911 for help…they let her sleep it off but she never woke up. She died.

It happens so quickly that you don’t have a chance especially, if you are relying on those friends that may leave you, or lay you down to sleep it off all the while you are choking on your own vomit. Depending on people you may think are your friends may seal your fate. It’s deadly, but it’s GHB.

So you trust your friends…but what do you really know about your trusted friends? What are your criteria for discerning whether someone is trustworthy and has the potential for being a friend? What are your criteria for discerning truth from hype? Do you do things because you want to please others? Are you able to say no to what is not good for you? Can you discern those who are on your side and those who are exploitative and manipulative? Do you find yourself in situations where you know you are in over your head because you were not discerning? Can you allow yourself to look at the situation and the people in your life and draw the line to protect your health and spirit from being abused and hurt by those who do not cherish you? Can you discern what is really valuable and beautiful about yourself and honor that within you?

This is what I’m talking about, HONORING yourself, being aware of your person, your surroundings and your friends Take nothing for granted. Try waking up everyday and finding one thing to be grateful for, like breath. Miracles abound. Wake up! Remember that you have been given the gift of life. If you are reading this at this moment rejoice in the present moment of your cosmic connection to the universe…for you are a field of unlimited possibility just because you exist! That’s it! If you see that you are lacking then you are suffering from illusion because you came into this world already complete having and knowing everything you need to know for your journey.

You bring into this world your own unique gifts that only you can give to the world. It is your choice. You have value because you exist. Rejoice and celebrate your life. Dance because you are inspired by spirit not because you want to escape the ordinariness of every day life by a GHB-induced high (http://dancesafe.org/drug-information/ghb). Life is ordinary but you are not.
