Article XXXVII: Ephemeral Happiness

As Baba Ram Dass describes (Article XXXVI), it is important to realize that alcohol and other psychotropic substances can only give one TRANSIENT happiness. Just like any other object or stimulus in the world of maya, drugs can also give one an experience of transient happiness. However, these sensory objects tend to bind us to our senses and make us slaves to our senses by forcing us to continually seek more sensory pleasure. We can become psychologically and physiologically dependent not only to drugs or alcohol, but to any sensory pleasure that the world has to offer. Only by remaining non-attached, selfless, and righteous can we overcome the bondage to this maya and approach enlightenment.
