“Being satisfied with what we already have is a magical golden key to being alive in a full, unrestricted and inspired way. One of the major obstacles to what is traditionally called enlightenment is resentment, feeling cheated, holding a grudge about who you are, where you are, what you are. We need to realise that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have. Our wisdom is all mixed up with what we call our neurosis. Our brilliance, our juiciness, our spiciness, is all mixed up with our craziness and our confusion, and therefore it doesn’t do any good to try to get rid of our so-called negative aspects, because in that process we also get rid of our basic wonderfulness. We can lead our life so as to become more awake to who we are and what we’re doing, rather than trying to improve or change or get rid of who we are and what we’re doing. The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive and curious about ourselves.” from “The Wisdom of No Escape”, by Pema Chodron.

We live lives based upon selected fictions. Our view of reality is conditioned by our position in space and time—not by our personalities as we like to think. Thus every interpretation of reality is based upon a unique position. Two paces east or west and the whole picture is changed. - Lawrence Durrell

Homosexuality is God's way of insuring that the truly gifted aren't burdened with children - Sam Austin

"The main thing is to feel emotion, to love, to hope, to quiver, and to live."
