Crochet: Plus transcendante que LSD

I recently read a story about the transcendent power of crochet and I wanted to share it. I’ll paraphrase here and link to the original source at the bottom of this post.

The story is about an elderly woman who attended a lecture by Ram Dass, the spiritual leader known for reporting back on his travels to India, his vegetarianism and his charitable foundations. He is also known for his professional relationship with controversial psychologist Timothy Leary who advocated the use of psychedelic drugs like LSD.

Apparently, this elderly woman was listening to Ram Dass lecture on those amazing benefits of LSD. Fondamentalement, he described a crazy drug trip and she was just sitting there nodding her head and soaking up every minute. At the end of the lecture, Ram Dass spoke to the woman and he couldn’t help but ask (more or less) “what the heck do you know about taking LSD?”

The woman laughed as he asked if she had taken LSD or maybe had a similar transcendent experience at one of those Indian ashrams he was known for attending. Non, that’s not why she understood the intense blissful experience of a trip. She responded, “I crochet”.

Ram Dass was describing a way to get absolutely lost in the moment, to feel complete bliss, to experience one with the universethis elderly woman says she got that same experience through her crochet. Comme je le disais, it was just a story I had to share.

So I askis crochet spiritual for you?
