A few years ago, before 21, 12, 2012, I thought it would be fun to post a flyer around Toronto stating, “WHAT I LEARNED WITH LSD.”

That first talk was given at midnight.

I thought I would do it a few times only.

To my surprise and delight it has become one of my longest standing programs.

The second night I gave it a man asked after, “What do you think about 21, 12, 2012?”

I said, “That is all speculation. We will get to it when we get to it.”

To my surprise he shouted, “IF YOU KNEW WHO I AM YOU WOULD NOT SPEAK TO ME LIKE THIS!”

Then he stormed out.

My first thought was, “This man thinks he is Jesus.”

One of the fellows who lived here walked in with a book. He said, “He gave me this book to give to you.”

The book was titled, “MY LIFE BY JESUS CHRIST.”

He had told me when he first came in that he had dropped acid over 500 times.

Clearly, in all those times, he had learned nothing.

Sometimes the place is full for this talk.

Sometimes it is only one person.

It does not matter to me how many there are.

What matters is that so many of those who have come for this have come to be my friends.
