"Who would deny that when I am sipping tea in my tea room I am swallowing the whole universe with it and this very moment of the lifting of the bowl to my lips is eternity itself transcending time space?"
D.T Suzuki

"I studied yoga. I wondered around in the East. I was fast shuffled by beady-eyed little men in dotes.. I know the whole spiritual supermarket and rigamarole but still, I find nothing there to interest me on the level 5 grams of psilocybin mushrooms in silent darkness."

— Terrence McKenna

let the sails pull the anchor
let the still river flow
sweet icon of serenity
let lust not pull my heart

let me bypass broken angels
see me stare strayed fools
strange lord you must not betray me,
so I may touch another heart.

I did go out of my mind. So much so that the people I once frequently related with did not care to relate to me any longer. But I do not regret this. I am proud of this, nor do I care to justify it. It just feels like a lost right to go insane, because I do not seek sanity, nor do I seek morality or niceties. I seek truth. Can a man not seek truth without the distractions of the joker and romancer figure, these distractions that pull puppet strings on the mind. What a constant tussle. The difficulties of silence have became a commodity in its own.

On, on and, time is ticking
upon each beat my heart is dripping
long behold, and do not withdraw light afar
for I race my pulse to some day touch your star.

"I think the world needs people who actually go into these deeply personal experiences, in the wild of nature, and are able to bring that wild out."

Tags: quote

"Managers and teachers extol the virtues of positive thinking by concentrating on positive values and glossing over one’s faults. That however is not positive thinking; it is delusive thinking. Positive thinking, correctly applied, means to know yourself, especially your weaknesses, and then to use both your weaknesses and strengths to the best advantage."

— Andrew Toth

"I wanted evil, since I realised I was not able to elude it. He who does not want evil will have no chance to save his soul from hell."

Carl Jung, Liber Novus(The Red Book)

Angel of lust

If height were to send my karma
it be her
such unearthly desire be my hearts rapture
to break me from breaking another fool
to break me, to shake me out of pawning another feminine soul

see her dance in a thousand rainbows
see her move in chameleons dance
a subtle attraction evolving 10 thousand forms
to a heart breaking in 10 thousand forms
an echo that sounds across all that forms
a blackness, a shadow across all that forms

a curse tree that smiles poison fruits into hearts that hunger for desire
my poison angel
a beautiful wrath, burning my desire.
