alcohol Alcohol... all societies have been against it, but still, they have to allow it, because they know that without alcohol there would be much chaos.
Alcohol has to e allowed in mild doses, legal doses; legally it has to be allowed. Why? Because it soothes people; it is a tranquilizer. And people are in such inner anguish, they need something to soothe them. Otherwise they would simply go berserk. They would simply go mad.

So no society can afford freedom about alcohol, but no society can prohibit it completely.
That is not possible.
Either way it will be difficult to manage. Alcohol is a need. It is a need because the tension is so great inside that you would go made because of it. And then many types of drugs have cropped up -- and it is not for the first time, it has been always so.
From the soma of Rigveda to LSD 5, it has always been so.
Again and again drugs pop up.
Again they have to be pushed down, crushed; and society tries to forget them.
But again they come back.
Thee seems to be a deep need.
The need is: a bridge is needed between the conscious and unconscious.

Unless a man becomes sincerely meditative, drugs will be needed.
Unless you go upwards, you will have to fall downwards.
You cannot remain static.
This is one of the deeper laws of existence: nobody can remain static.
Either ha has to go up, or he has to fall down; because life knows no rest, it knows only movement. Either you go forward, or you will be thrown backward, but you cannot say that you will stick to your state -- you will not go down and you will not go up.
No, that is not possible.
If you are not going up, you are already falling down -- you may or you may not know it.

Only a meditative society can be free of alcohol and drugs, and other chemical ways to bridge the gap. You can bridge the gap through being more alert, that's why there is so much emphasis on being alert, aware, witnessing, watchful. Why? Because the more you become alert, the more the unconscious becomes conscious.
That is the only way.
If you remain more alert, if you walk with awareness, if you talk, listen, with awareness, if you eat, take your bath, with awareness, not like a robot, not walking in sleep and doing things, or doing things and thinking about other things -- that too is a sort of sleep -- no, if consciously, mindfully, you do your thing, chunks of the unconscious are being transformed into consciousness, and by and by, more and more of your iceberg comes out of the water of darkness, out of the ocean.
When the whole of you is out of darkness, this is samadhi, this enlightenment, this is the state of a Buddha, or an ARHAT: one who has no longer any unconsciousness in him, one who has no longer any dark corners within his being.
The whole house is lighted.

Now, you have attained to a unity -- on a higher plane.

So a Buddha is pure like an animal, simple like an animal.
The animal has its innocence because of ignorance, and Buddha has his innocence because of his enlightened awareness.
The cause has changed.
