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

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

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.

When you open yourself to the continually changing, impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being and of reality, you increase your capacity to love and care about other people and your capacity to not be afraid. You’re able to keep your eyes open, your heart open, and your mind open. And you notice when you get caught up in prejudice, bias, and aggression. You develop an enthusiasm for no longer watering those negative seeds, from now until the day you die. And, you begin to think of your life as offering endless opportunities to start to do things differently.

"Fuck", 2014.

Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.

- Terence McKenna


A gift from Scott Campbell.



"Ink Dots Black Spots", 2014.

Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.

- Malcolm X

"FTW", 2014.

I have never missed a meditation in 33 years. I meditate once in the morning and again in the afternoon, for about 20 minutes each time. Then I go about the business of my day. And I find that the joy of doing increases. Intuition increases. The pleasure of life grows. And negativity recedes.

- David Lynch


Ray Barbee.



"Floating Chairs", 2014.

A further sign of health is that we don’t become undone by fear and trembling, but we take it as a message that it’s time to stop struggling and look directly at what’s threatening us.

- Pema Chodron


Look for issue 35 of Joia magazine, available now.

Insofar as death is always at one’s door, one should make sufficient effort and act quickly.

We declare our right on this earth…to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary.

- Malcolm X

"Fixed", 2014.

Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you have to go deeper. Deep down, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.

- David Lynch

Rather than letting our negativity get the better of us, we could acknowledge that right now we feel like a piece of shit and not be squeamish about taking a good look.

- Pema Chodron

Vice cops don’t fight real crime; that’s not their job. Real cops fight real crime. A vice cop’s only job is to fuck up the party.

DDT advertisement from 1947, the same year my parents were born.  They sprayed this shit on everything and it caused cancer.  It was banned in 1972.  What are they spraying on our food now?



Bart Prince.

If your mind is expansive and unfettered, you will find yourself in a more accommodating world, a place that’s endlessly interesting and alive. That quality isn’t inherent in the place but in your state of mind.

- Pema Chodron
