When I see people manifesting sexual ambiguity or scarifying themselves, or showing a lot of flesh, or dancing to syncopated music, or getting loaded I applaud all of this because it is an impulse to return to what is felt by the body, what is authentic, what is archaic. And when you tease apart these archaic impulses at the very centre of them is the desire to return to a world of magical empowerment of feeling, and at the very centre of that impulse is the shaman…stoned, intoxicated on plants, speaking with the spirit helpers, dancing in the moonlight. Vivifying and evoking a world of conscious living mystery.

That’s what the world is. The world is not an unsolved problem for scientists and sociologists. The world is a living mystery…our birth, our death, out being in the moment…these are mysteries, they are doorways opening up to unimaginable vistas of self-exploration, empowerment and hope for the human enterprise, and our culture has killed that. It has taken it away from us and made us consumers of shoddy products and shoddier ideals.

We have to get away from that and the way to do that is by a return to the authentic experience of the body, and that means sexually empowering ourselves, getting loaded, exploring the mind as a tool for personal and social transformation. The hour is late. The clock is ticking. We are the inheritors of millions of years of successfully lived lives and adaptations to changing conditions in the natural world.

Now the challenge passes to us, the living, that the yet to be born may have a place to put their feet and a sky to walk under. And that is what the psychedelic experience is about…empowering and building a future that honours the past, honours the planet and honours the power of human imagination. There is nothing as powerful and as capable of transforming itself and the planet as the human imagination…the tools are there, the path is known, you simple have to turn your back on a culture that has gone sterile and dead and get with the program!

"Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation." 

Albert Einstein (via alteringminds)

Sometimes it still hurts though

"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

If ur feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares u directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand
