"When the state sends us to prison, for essentially exploring our own consciousness... This is a grotesque abuse of human rights. It's a fundamental wrong. If I, as an adult, am not sovereign over my own consciousness, then I am absolutely not sovereign over anything. I cannot claim any kind of freedom at all. And what has happened over the last 40-50 years, under the disguise of the War On Drugs, is that we have been persuaded to hand over the keys of our consciousness to the state. The most precious, the most intimate, the most sapient part of ourselves... The state now has the keys. Furthermore, they've persuaded us that it's in our interest. This is a dangerous situation."

"You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemns, and know lack of all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilization which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced. In that intolerable conflict you lose all joy of life and all feeling of personality, because at every moment they suppress and restrain and check the free play of your powers. That's the poisoned and mortal wound of the civilized world."

"Can you feel it?

It`s the excitement of your mind
The old being left behind
And the new blowing your mind

Can you feel it?

It`s the universe in your eyes
The spirit realizing old lies
The nature expanding inside
And the seeds scattered outside"

"Resist Nothing
For the old man standing at one more of his friend`s grave
For the orphan playing alone
For the father with three children and a cancer
For the ballerina who became paraplegic
For the renegade son
And for the mother hugging her son for the last time
For the depressive boy at the top […]"

For the father with three children and a cancer
For the ballerina who became paraplegic
For the renegade son
And for the mother hugging her son for the last time
For the depressive boy at the top of the precipice
And for the dreamer whose dream was never achieved
I say:
Resist nothing
Because from fortuity every comes
And in time everything discards
And what today torments you
One day will be left behind"

"Picture a growing forest, where each seed is a person you have met, talked to, had fun with, loved, even hated...in you life so far.
We each are born from from this... We come from a long family of multiple paths. Each one leading to something different, something extraordinary, it is called life.
As it is, we start from basically nothing, then we grow, bit by bit, at various rates, sizes... We do a number of different things from each other on the way up. Everybody has there tree, there branches... They represent are choices in life, are actions, are emotions, are thoughts... All comes on the board, when it is a question about life, and here we start, we grow, we go...
So we start small, we are the fruit of our family. Being our life, our aim is personal, unique, and most of the times unclear. And this is normal, because in the beginning, we live in the shade of others whom are taller, bigger, and as time goes by and we find our way to the sky... Sometimes there are still clouds. It is not something to be afraid of, we can be, there is no rule, it's just that life goes on, we go on and moments like yesterday shall change your day, and maybe even the day after. This path, set by faith, god, someone maybe, or just you, is to be followed and enjoyed, but never alone.
Our lives are constantly crossed, mixed up, intertwined... with others's, even though, our choice in life are different, we always come close to others. Keep in mind we probably started 100000 miles away from each other, we still meet these people, and they become close. That is one of many beauties of life. An other can be, that you crossed someone, maybe once, twice... And finally you actually saw them. A criss cross patten, is a good summary, but as I said, some you meet more than one.
There are moments in life, you get so close to people, you almost get stuck to them, as DNA, you connect naturally, and easy. These people are not just anybody, they are your friends, your family, you loves... and probably in the end your personal and unique future family. We all leave a mark, sometimes it's just drawn, sometimes it goes as far as burned on, in the end, it is remembered for ever.
So this life, this climb, this growth... is a unique path for all, whom is shared, briefly to forever, by many people from all walks of life. It shows one important thing, in all cases... we are in constant movement, and we have to constantly make choices for us and others. Just remember to live your life to the fullest, to the best, while enjoying every inch, every second of it, because you only get one go at it. So appreciate the view as it is your turn, then, you can say that your are living THE dream, with THE people at you side, after making THE best choices, to bring you THE happiness and THE life you wanted."

Embrace the unknown,

Escape your comfort zone,

Love what is different.

It just might give you some good memories."
