"I am he as you are me and we are all together."

-----------------------------------------
"Well that is that and this is this.
Will you tell me what you saw and I'll tell you what you missed, when the ocean met the sky.
You missed when time and life shook hands and said goodbye.
When the earth folded on itself.
And said "Good luck, I hope heaven and hell are really there, I wouldn't hold my breath.

You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death? "
-Modest Mouse

"Do what you love, and fuck the rest."
-Dwayne (Paul Dano) Little miss Sunshine

"We became men when we learned how to think. Our minds have given us the tools to understand where we live and who we are. Now it is time to move on to the next step, to know that we live not on a planet, but among the stars, and that we are not flesh, but intelligence."-Rodger Ebert, on 2001: A Space Odyssey

"We all sit around in a circle and suppose, while the secret sits in the center and knows."
-Robert Frost
---------------------------------
“I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.”

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on and individual level. It's got to happen inside first. You can take away a man's political freedom and you won't hurt him- unless you take away his freedom to feel. That can destroy him. That kind of freedom can't be granted. Nobody can win it for you.”

“Where's your will to be weird?”

“I think in art, but especially in films, people are trying to confirm their own existences.”

“When you make your peace with authority, you become authority.”
- Jim Morrison
------------------------------------
"Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble."

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls."

"God is an intelligible sphere- a sphere known to the mind, not to the sense- whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere."

"I don't have to have faith, I have experience."

"Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning."

"The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature."

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are."
- Joseph Campbell

In short: I am what I am, you are what you are, it Is what it Is and we are all connected.
I am breaking free from the life I've been conditioned to want, and living the life my soul wants.
