"Divine am I inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch
or am touch’d from,
The scent of these arm-pits aroma finer than prayer,
This head more than churches, bibles, and all the creeds."
I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
THAT THEY’RE NOT TRYING
BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY’RE TRYING OR NOT
JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE NOT TRYING
"The basics in our practice should
be: first, to be honest and
upright; second, to be wary of
wrongdoing; and third, to be
humble within one’s heart, to be
aloof and content with little. If
we are content with little in
regards to speech and in all other
things, we will see ourselves, we
won’t be distracted. The mind
will have a foundation of virtue,
concentration, and wisdom."
"Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously."
"If you’re brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you."
Behold, I do not give lectures or a little charity,
When I give I give myself.
