“The recognition that essentially you are the world, that there is no subject/object split, that there is no separation between you and “all that is” - this realization, even at the conceptual level, changes consciousness.
When this realization gets in deeper and becomes more self evident, consciousness changes again, and again, and again as one lives their life more consciously. And this elevated state of consciousness affects all consciousness around it - like ripples on the pond of collective consciousness.
Ripples can become waves and waves become tsunamis. And it begins with willingness, with intention, with you, right here, right now. The quality of your awakening, awakens the world around you.”

Letter VII of ‘The Necessary Fine Print’ has been delivered to you.
“Tell me, what do you think of my work?”
Joan of Arc came back as a little girl in Japan, and her father told her to stop listening to her imaginary friends.
Elvis was born again in a small village in Sudan, he died hungry, age 9, never knowing what a guitar was.
Michelangelo was drafted into the military at age 18 in Korea, he painted his face black with shoe polish and learned to kill.
Jackson Pollock got told to stop making a mess, somewhere in Russia.
Hemingway, to this day, writes DVD instruction manuals somewhere in China. He’s an old man on a factory line. You wouldn’t recognise him.
Gandhi was born to a wealthy stockbroker in New York. He never forgave the world after his father threw himself from his office window, on the 21st floor.
And everyone, somewhere, is someone, if we only give them a chance.

“Once and forever, capitalism is a worthy tool and a necessary one for creating mass wealth, but as to the distribution and uses of that wealth within a society? No, capitalism is not a metric for anything but profit itself. This is the lie at the core of free-market ideology and libertarianism. And free markets are never the whole or complete answer when addressing any societal goal, compact or responsibility. It’s easy to make money when all you give a fuck about is making money, to invoke Orson Welles. And the Koch brothers and others of their kind wish to build a society that does little but transfer wealth to a select few while obliterating any other ambition for American society. If newspapers can help them secure that future, so be it. But journalism in those cities where they own the daily newspaper and its digitized versions will be crippled until alternative news sources are developed by independent, professional journalists. What do you call it when capital has purchased not only government, but all plausible means to criticize governance? A prelude to fascism.”
David Simon (The Wire) on what happened to journalism.
Basically what they’ll be saying about the US when they do the autopsy.
