But the poor person does not exist as an inescapable fact of destiny. His or her existence is not politically neutral, and it is not ethically innocent. The poor are a by-product of the system in which we live and for which we are responsible. They are marginalized by our social and cultural world. They are the oppressed, exploited proletariat, robbed of the fruit of their labor and despoiled of their humanity. Hence the poverty of the poor is not a call to generous relief action, but a demand that we go and build a different social order.

Nature shows that with the growth of intelligence comes increased capacity for pain, and it is only with the highest degree of intelligence that suffering reaches its supreme point.

It is love alone that leads to right action. What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will.

—Krishnamurti (via panchakshara)

We have a fear of facing ourselves. That is the obstacle. Experiencing the innermost core of our existence is very embarrassing to a lot of people. A lot of people turn to something that they hope will liberate them without their having to face themselves. That is impossible. We can’t do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our excrement, our most undesirable parts. We have to see them. That is the foundation of warriorship, basically speaking. Whatever is there, we have to face it, we have to look at it, study it, work with it and practice meditation with it.

Kava. The frothy muddy water on the bowl is kava. And it did give me bad head spaces when I first experimented with it, with each attempt gradually worse than the one before. It is legal in California, but now the question is where to find a trustworthy source.

But the stuff in the saffron hued man’s bowl is certainly kava.

Nope. No new rabbit holes for me!

If you find a source, uh, let me know.

… Because.

I’ve heard that mixing kava with anything but straight downers can give you a bad high, so if it was mixed with bud or anything like that, that might be where the bad headspaces came from. Not speaking from experience though haha, I’ve yet to try it.

I think the real test of psychedelics is what you do with them when you’re not on them, what kind of culture you build, what kind of art, what kind of technologies… What’s lacking in the Western mind is the sense of connectivity and relatedness to the rest of life, the atmosphere, the ecosystem, the past, our children’s future. If we were feeling those things we would not be practicing culture as we are.

SO MOTE IT BE.

(feel free to help a girl out, but if you’re going to charge these sigils beyond rebagleing them, I ask that you charge them together, as I have done in my ritual.)

The top sigil is for my acceptance letter from UB to come through.
The bottom sigil is for some $$$$$. 

SO MOTE IT BE.

no he just liked masturbating

Yeah pretty much.

So sad to think about it in those terms…

Yeah it’s definitely a lot more profound than that he just liked to jerk off. I don’t really think of it in such basic terms haha. There is a bit of humor in the exchange though, and it should be enough to dispel those myths at least.

Oh for fuck’s sake it’s a joke.

Yeah lol, I didn’t miss the joke. I was just responding to Masonictraveler’s comment, if that was directed at me.
