Enjoying some Loa' Lawena from CK and have Joe Rogan's "Raghunath Cappo Explains Karma, Dharma, and Rebirth," playing in the background and I am wondering, is Kava sort of an entheogenic alcohol. Hate to compare separate substances, but does anyone else feel Kava can produce a spiritual side to its effects and be mind-opening while also supplying relaxation, calm, and sedative and socially uninhibited effects similar to alcohol and the benzodiazepines? Might be that I also got hardly any sleep last night so I am extra sensitive but have noticed that when on Kava, I love writing my innermost thoughts in my journal and thinking about life, connecting to inner emotions through songs, writing, socializing, and so on. Alcohol maybe used to have this effect, but it happens in a very blunted, fleeting, and egoic way, and without the true connection that Kava has. I compare it because there are elements of the basic effects between the two that are similar, but Kava has a deeper side?
