Jesus was sitting on a rock in the desert, meditating and reading the law, when Tarzan came riding up on a goat. Tarzan was munching Nutmeg seeds and playing the harmonica.
“Hi Jesus!” He yelled.
A vast radiant beach & a cool
jeweled moon. Couples naked
race down by its quiet side &
we laugh like soft mad children,
smug in the wooly cotton brains
The music & voices are all around us.
Choose. They croon
The ancient ones
The time has come again
Choose now. They croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake.
Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream, come w/us
Everything is broken up
Son los locos que inventaron el amor.
"One should always be in love, and that is why one should never marry."
“You are what you love, not what loves you. ”
"Seeking begins when the options presented are unacceptable."
Matthew Sanford, Waking
"Being honest is subjective, someone will always call you a liar, for we all create our own truths and live in them. Our integrity is measured by how close our truth is to the real thing.
"We can never judge the lives of others because each person knows only his own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path."
Tom Robbins- Mysticism; Excerpts from Skinny Legs and All
Early religions were like muddy ponds with lots of foliage. Concealed there the fish of the soul could splash and feed. Eventually, however, religions became aquariums. Then hatcheries. Farm fingerling to frozen fish stick is a short swim.
[Do] not glide in numb circles inside a box of religion.
Dogma and tradition overrule any natural instinct for brotherhood.
