                "He is not Almighty, that he might cross his hands and thus await his certain victory. His salvation depends upon us. And only if he is saved may we be saved"

                                                Nikos Kazantzakis



We were born to be naked, and dancing, and kissing each other. We were born to be changeless and changing, mortal and immortal, formed and yet free. We were born to be the stillness inside the fabulous change.

Never try to be something that you're not. Never try to not be something which you are. Never do less than the most you can do. Never imagine that life is limited- that you cannot find your true soul mate, your true self, the Great Spirit of Being, Christ, Mary, your siblings on the Tree of Life, the Source, the Finish, Satan, God, and much, much more in this great and unpredictable existence we are in and which we are. It is all there, and it is waiting. You are the only wall between finitude and infinity, and you are that infinity also.

Let the self be a perpetual baptism, wherein one moves, and moves, and never stops moving; the relentless, uncatchable, spectacular, dynamic of the soul that demands to be free.

We each belong to that energy of the moment. In the wildness beyond anarchy, where the individual, rampant from the mean, will accept no compromise, no help, no advice, no method, no limit- that is the point where the spirit breaks free of its mold, flies beyond itself, and dwells in the infinite expanse of the unimagninable, untethered new. To soar where no archetype can follow, that is to be new, and to be true.

Anyone who breaks free of the imposed structure, who lives life for life itself, with no worry or expectation of reward or praise, develops their own individual force, unknown to the greater part of mankind. We all have it, but most of us give it away to convention, or careers, or cowardice.

We were not born to follow others, to learn what they say you should learn, to go where others wander, nor to deny the smallest part of our own force for comfort or acceptance. We are not alive to toil, to lie, to impress people, or to suffer. We are alive to be life- to be the great mystery endlessly awakening to itself. We are all God becoming infinitely godlike. And each of us must live it through. Alone.

God sits in a different seat in each person's auditorium.
