Gazing, we do not see it
we call it empty space
Listening, we do not hear it
we call it silence or noise
Groping, we do not grasp it
we call it intangible
we… spin through it
Electric, silent, subtle
~ Timothy Leary, Psychedelic Prayers
"If you talk to people with your head you will reach their heads, if you talk with your heart you will reach their hearts and if you talk with your life you will reach peoples lives."
"Under Heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness. All can know good as good only because there is evil."

"A New Way of thinking, a New Way of being."
"Meditation is the return home to or origins. We learn then to be at home in the dark and in the light, in suffering and joy, in riches and in poverty. We learn surprises and openness in spirit. We learn stillness and the silence that is behind all things. We learn to be with awe and to let it fill us. We learn from the God of darkness and chaos, and to be with chaos. The most important thing I can say about chaos is to trust it; it’s all over the place now. Even the physicists are on board."
~ Matthew Fox, ‘Natural Grace
"I profess the religion of love, Love is my religion and my faith. My mother is love, My father is love, My prophet is love, My God is love, I am a child of love. I have come only to speak of love"
"Let’s suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream that you wanted to dream, and that you could, for example, have the power within one night to dream 75 years of dreams, or any length of time you wanted to have. And you would, naturally as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure you could conceive. And after several nights, of 75 years of total pleasure each, you would say ‘Well, that was pretty great. But now let’s have a surprise. Let’s have a dream which isn’t under control. Where something is gonna happen to me that I don’t know what it’s gonna be.’ And you would dig that and come out of that and say ‘Wow, that was a close shave, wasn’t it?’. And then you would get more and more adventurous, and you would make further and further out gambles as to what you would dream. And finally, you would dream where you are now. You would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today."
"I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again"
