Always do sober what you said you would do drunk, that will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

I may live a world away, but i've always liked these:

"When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."
Chief Aupumut, Mohican. 1725

"Your religious calling was on plates of stone by the flaming finger of an angry God. Our religion was established the traditions of our ancestors. The dreams of our elders that are given to them in the silent hours of the night by the Great Spirit. And the premonitions of the learned Beings. It is written in the hearts of our people, THUS, we do not require churches which would only lead to us to argue about GOD. We do not wish this. EARTHLY things may be argued about by men, but we never argue over GOD. And the thought that white men should rule over nature and change its ways following his liking was never understood by the RED man. Our belief is that the Great Spirit has created all things. Not just mankind, but all animals, all plants, all rocks... For us all, life is holy. But you do not understand our prayers when we address the sun, moon, and winds. You have judged us without understanding only because are prayers are different. But we are able to live in harmony with all of nature. All of nature is within us and we are part of all nature."
Chief White Cloud

"Mankind has a poor understanding of life. He mistakes knowledge for wisdom. He tries to unveil the holy secrets of our father, the Great Spirit. He attempts to impose his laws and ways on Mother Earth. Even though he, himself, is part of nature, he chooses to disregard and ignore it for the sake of his own immediate gain. But the laws of nature are far stronger than those of mankind. Man must awake at last, and learn to understand how little time there remains before he will become the cause of his own downfall. And he has so much to learn. To learn to see with the heart. He must learn to respect Mother Earth-She who has given life to everything; to our brothers and sisters, the animals and plants; to the rivers, the lakes, the oceans and the winds. He must realize that this planet does not belong to him, but that he has to care for and maintain the delicate balance of nature for the sake of the wellbeing for our children and all future generations. It is the duty of mankind to preserve the earth and the creation of the Great Spirit. Mankind being but a grain of sand in the holy circle which encloses all of life"
Chief White Cloud

"Once I was in Victoria, and I saw a very large house. They told me it was a bank and that the white men place their money there to be taken care of, and that by and by they got it back with interest. "We are Indians and we have no such bank; but when we have plenty of money or blankets, we give them away to other chiefs and people, and by and by they return them with interest, and our hearts feel good. Our way of giving is our bank."
Chief Maquinna, Nootka

"To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders."
Lao Tzu

My apologies if these are repeated anywhere, been reading this thread over a few days and can't quite remember everything. Great stuff, tho, all of it.

My late Wobbly friend, W.S., 1892 - 1982, whose young life was saved by an old Indian in Minnesota, liked to quote that old Indian who took over raising him, and said to him,

"White man religion not even good for white man."

You don't know yourself until you have a psychedelic experience. You might think you know yourself, but i guarantee you you're going to find out who you really fucking are when you go deep. When you go deep and you come back and you have to kind of assesseverything, and look at yourself through fresh eyes. The ego, while you're sleeping, while you're working.. it's gaining ground. It's like the fucking fed. It's stealing money, and there's pocketing things, and taking control over certain areas. It really is like the government. And then you don't realize how fucking embedded it's become in your system, until you have a blow-out. Until you have a psychedelic *pop *boom , blow-out experience. And that ego gets just shucked aside like you know, like a fucking explosion in a comic book movie. And the ego is sitting in a tree with half it's clothes off hanging from branches cuz it just got blown out. You know then, then you get to see yourself again. Then you get to see who you really are.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

Who the hell is 'Bugg Eye Earl'?

That sounds more like vintage 'Fungo' to me.

poop juice, huh?
maybe a bit of 'wang tang' with that?

I'll have a margarita on the rocks, with salt, thanks.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" -- Isaac Asimov





I also like Bill Nye's tweets when he's stoned. :amazed:
