Alphonse Mucha.

You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.

At times of great trouble or disaster, one word will suffice. At times of happiness, too, one word will be enough. And when meeting or talking with others, one word will do. One should think well and then speak. This is clear and firm, and one should learn it with no doubts.

- Yamamoto Tsuentomo - from Hagakure, The Book of the Samurai

If the words ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.

- Terence McKenna


Amsterdam, August 2008.



Sofles.  More styles than you.

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.

- Pema Chodron

Dries Van Noten 2015 Spring RTW collection.

The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish.

- Terence McKenna

Must see!



"Yab-Yum", 2014.

At a glance, every individual’s own measure of dignity is manifested just as it is. There is dignity in personal appearance. There is dignity in a calm aspect. There is dignity in a paucity of words. There is dignity is flawlessness of manners. There is dignity on solemn behavior. And there is dignity in deep insight and a clear perspective. These are all reflected on the surface. But in the end, their foundation is simplicity of thought and tautness of spirit.

- Yamamoto Tsunetomo - from Hagakure, The Book of the Samurai

Hex, LA, 1990s.

No one ever tells us to stop running away from fear… the advice we usually get is to sweeten it up, smooth it over, take a pill, or distract ourselves, but by all means make it go away.

- Pema Chodron


"Thyroid", 2014.

You don’t have to be a man to fight for freedom. All you have to do is to be an intelligent human being.

Hex, 1990s.

As long as our orientation is toward perfection or success, we will never learn about unconditional friendship with ourselves, nor will we find compassion.

It doesn’t mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don’t call it violence when it’s self-defense, I call it intelligence.

- Malcolm X


"MGN", 2014.



Situwuka and Kathwachsnea, 1912.

As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve resolution. However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from resolution. We don’t deserve resolution; we deserve something better than that. We deserve our birthright, which is the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox and ambiguity.

- Pema Chodron

The condition of a person is revealed by his dreams. It would be good to make companions of your dreams and to put forth effort.
