And now for something completely different…



How do you twist,

How do you shift

From the pure to the profane

From the meaningful to the mundane?

How do you turn it all inside out,

Corrupt the pristine sound of silence

Into an angry shout?

How do you let go of the real

And pray with religious zeal

To the gods of greed and lust,

Preaching and teaching fear

From birth ’til dust?

How do you explain it away?

How do you make it ok

To rape unto death

The beauty that gives us breath?

How do you maintain the energy it takes

To break instead of create,

To steal instead of heal?

How do you learn to be happy

In that arctic zone

Where the status quo freezes you to the bone,

Where peace and love are a waste of time

And freedom is a crime?

How do you learn to live In a state of war

Panting and chanting

“More, more, more!”

Never giving,

Never really living,

Staring Divinity in the face

But standing just outside of grace,

Just to the left of hope,

Choosing to be enslaved and separate,

Refusing to believe in anything

except the god of the machine.

It’s a fatal illusion,

A killing joke,

Conceived to leave you

Blind, desperate and broke.


Mind, not matter

If ordinary people knew that consciousness and not matter is the link that connects us with each other and the world, then their views about war and peace, environmental pollution, social justice, religious values, and all other human endeavors would change radically

-Amit Goswami


Five simple rules




The Big Bang in blue jeans

It’s like you took a bottle of ink and you threw it at a wall. Smash! And all that ink spread. And in the middle, it’s dense, isn’t it? And as it gets out on the edge, the little droplets get finer and finer and make more complicated patterns, see? So in the same way, there was a big bang at the beginning of things and it spread. And you and I, sitting here in this room, as complicated human beings, are way, way out on the fringe of that bang. We are the complicated little patterns on the end of it. Very interesting. But so we define ourselves as being only that. If you think that you are only inside your skin, you define yourself as one very complicated little curlique, way out on the edge of that explosion. Way out in space, and way out in time. Billions of years ago, you were a big bang, but now you’re a complicated human being. And then we cut ourselves off, and don’t feel that we’re still the big bang. But you are. Depends how you define yourself. You are actually–if this is the way things started, if there was a big bang in the beginning– you’re not something that’s a result of the big bang. You’re not something that is a sort of puppet on the end of the process. You are still the process. You are the big bang, the original force of the universe, coming on as whoever you are. When I meet you, I see not just what you define yourself as–Mr so-and- so, Ms so-and-so, Mrs so-and-so–I see every one of you as the primordial energy of the universe coming on at me in this particular way. I know I’m that, too. But we’ve learned to define ourselves as separate from it

-Alan Watts



Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.

-Ram Dass
