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."
"I've always been of the opinion that the glass is neither half full nor half empty, just that it's too big, needs ice or needs a top-off."
“You are what you love, not what loves you. ”
"The key is to remember that the path is always in flux, there is no “one true way” but the more paths one explores, the better their chances of coming across one that leads them somewhere fruitful. Of course the next step is to just cop a squat and realize….any place can be fruitful if you look with the right eyes."
"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.
