MIND: Fools

If you say that getting the money is the most important thing,
you’ll spend your life completely wasting your time.
You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living,
that is to go on doing thing you don’t like doing, which is stupid.

MIND: Grounded

I feel an indescribable ecstasy and delirium in melting,
as it were, into the system of being,
in identifying myself with the whole of nature.

// Jean-Jacques Rousseau

MIND: Vocal

Stop aspiring and start writing.
If you’re writing, you’re a writer.
Write like you’re a goddamn death row inmate and
the governor is out of the country and there’s no chance for a pardon.
Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff, white knuckles,
on your last breath, and you’ve got just one last thing to say,
like you’re a bird flying over us and you can see everything,
and please, for God’s sake, tell us something that will save us from ourselves.
Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret,
so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone.
Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t.

// Alan Wilson Watts

MIND: Demolish

There exists, for everyone,
a sentence – a series of words
that has the power to destroy you.
Another sentence exists, another series of words,
that could heal you.
If you’re lucky you will get the second,
but you can be certain of getting the first.

VALIS // Philip K. Dick
