“I See Men Like Trees”

“They came to Bethsaida. And they brought a blind man to Jesus and implored Him to touch him. Taking the blind man by the hand, He brought him out of the village; and after spitting on his eyes and laying His hands on him, He asked him, “Do you see anything?” And he looked up and said, “I see men, for I see them like trees, walking around.” Then again He laid His hands on his eyes; and he looked intently and was restored, and began to see everything clearly. And He sent him to his home, saying, “Do not even enter the village.” ~ Mark 8:22-26

    1. I swear, I am so bad with the details that every time I go to write I feel like Moses: “but I stutter!” As it turns out, writing and editing are two different skill sets that don’t always exist together in the same person. Sigh.

  1. I read his book, co-written with Timothy Leary, in the early 1970’s. The Psychedelic Experience. Here is a quote from Richard Alpert, aka Ram Das/Servant of god. “I didn’t have one whiff of God until I took psychedelics.” Jewish Hindu’s also have some insights to share. 🙂 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ram_Dass
