I'm David. I'm 40. I have five Children. I've been married to my wife for 20 years. I'm an orthodox Jew and I live with my family in a tight knit community in New York. Religion is important to me. I like the value system and sheltering in the overall sense. I love our way of life and community. My faith constantly forces me to be better, do better. There are of course restrictions to the religion, but it also gives a framework to focus on a lot of self introspection and improvement. For me. The religion is a lot about community. Everyone helps each other. Jewish people are like brothers wherever you are in the world. A couple of years ago, a friend took me to a party, a a rave. It was the first time I'd ever been to a party like that with techno music was love at first sight. Nothing more freeing than dancing in a dark warehouse where you can be anything and meet anyone. Once I started, I was all in the vibe, the people, the energy. Sometimes I go a couple of times a month, sometimes twice a week. Raving is an equalizer for me the ability to connect with people, regardless of age and religion, accepting humans as they are and leaving the things that differentiate us outside the venue. At least that's, that's what I get out of it. In the end. I want to find the truest form of religious practice of what God intended with raving and drugs. I try to get to the root of my core beliefs. My first mushroom trip was the closest I felt to God ever in my life. It was like, it was like in the matrix, I saw everyone's pods and their connection to the power source, the source being God, I felt this, this Godliness in me. And when I felt that I thought maybe I could be the messiah and not even know it. Maybe a trip is like a, like a prophetic vision. I feel like I was, I was born again. It was the closest that I ever felt to being a spiritual being.
