  • In this proud land we grew up strong
    We were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail
    No fight left or so it seems
    I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
    I've changed my name, I've changed my face
    But no one wants you when you lose
    Don't give up
    'Cause you have friends
    Don't give up
    You're not beaten yet
    Don't give up
    I know you can make it good
    Though I saw it all around
    Never thought I could be affected
    Thought that we'd be the last to go
    It is so strange the way things turn
    Drove the night toward my home
    The place that I was born, on the lakeside
    As daylight broke, I saw the earth
    The trees had burned down to the ground
    Don't give up
    You still have us
    Don't give up
    We don't need much of anything
    Don't give up
    'Cause somewhere there's a place
    Where we belong
    Rest your head
    You worry too much
    It's going to be alright
    When times get rough
    You can fall back on us
    Don't give up
    Please don't give up
    'Got to walk out of here
    I can't take anymore
    Going to stand on that bridge
    Keep my eyes down below
    Whatever may come
    And whatever may go
    That river's flowing
    That river's flowing
    Moved on to another town
    Tried hard to settle down
    For every job, so many men
    So many men no-one needs
    Don't give up
    'Cause you have friends
    Don't give up
    You're not the only one
    Don't give up
    No reason to be ashamed
    Don't give up
    You still have us
    Don't give up now
    We're proud of who you are
    Don't give up
    You know it's never been easy
    Don't give up
    'Cause I believe there's a place
    There's a place where we belong.

  • Oct. 20, 1977:
    A plane crash ended the original #LynyrdSkynyrd band with the passing of singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, back-up singer Cassie Gaines and road manager Dean Kilpatrick.

    [media links are after these book quotes]
    Artimus Pyle: “Right before the wreck, the plane was completely quiet. I feel that everyone there at that moment was speaking to their concept of God.”

    Billy Powell: “After the engines stopped, only the whooshing noises of gliding through the air during our descent could be heard. Then it sounded like hundreds of people with baseball bats hitting the outside of the plane as we skimmed along the tops of the trees. Suddenly I saw the planes wings being ripped off of its sides.”

    Gene Odom: “Everyone was wearing their seat belts before we crashed, yet every seat but one was ripped from the floor. Almost everyone and everything was hurled forward into a pile of broken bodies that smothered those on the bottom.”

    Artimus Pyle: “The plane was completely torn apart when we hit the ground. I got out of the plane and started walking in a daze. I can’t describe how terrifying it was. Among the dead and dying, the conscious survivors were moaning and screaming for help. I saw the copilot hanging in a tree, decapitated. The pilots paid dearly for their mistake.”
    Thieves arrived before the rescuers did and stole thousands of dollars in cash, jewelry and anything else that was valuable from the crash site – even off of the deceased and those who were too injured to stop them from being robbed.

    Billy Powell: “Afterward when I learned that Ronnie had died… I felt relieved, to be honest – because thank God, it meant that the beatings would now finally stop. He was a hard man - a street fighter. Everyone was scared of him and no one dared to argue with Ronnie because they knew they’d get hurt.”

  • For Those Who Are Unknowingly Afflicted With The "Mr. Magoo Syndrome" —

    Imagine that you are a fish, swimming in a pond - and that you can move forwards & backward, side to side, but you can never move yourself up and out of the water...If someone happened to be standing right beside the pond, watching you, you would have absolutely no idea that they were even there - because, to you, that little pond is an entire Universe, and is the only reality that you've ever known...Now imagine that someone reaches down into the water and lifts you out of the pond. You would [then] see that what you had previously thought was the 'entire world' is now only a small pool... You would eventually see other ponds... The trees... The mountain ranges... The cloud-formations overhead, and the vastness of Earth's horizon in a 360-degree / panoramic mode-of-vision... You would [then] inevitably begin to realize that you are a part of a much larger and more perplexing 'reality-setting' than you had ever dreamed of beforehand while from a perspective within the blurry containment facility of your initial limited surroundings.

  • The craft with a genetic timeline. It comes and takes the power grid then reboots the mind and core downloads with updates. This is done with massive love of life and human existence. Yes trees fall to show one that a cycle is happening with every breath we take.

    The question is not about what you like. The question is about does everything around you like you, have you made yourself in such a way that nobody can help liking you? You like something, you dislike something, it doesn’t mean anything, because both what you like and what you dislike are two different kinds of bondages. Both what you like and what you dislike distorts (distort?) your perception. If you like somebody, you’ll exaggerate them in your mind. If you dislike somebody, for sure you’ll exaggerate them in your mind. Exaggeration means you’re unable to see things as they are. If you’re unable to see things as they are, you can never handle life the way it should be. So liking and disliking exaggerates either in positive ways or in negative ways, but it exaggerates or it distorts life. So what you like is not important. Have you made yourself in such a way, not just people, just everything likes you, every creature around you likes your presence, even the flowers, the plants and the trees like you?
    ‘How can the plants and the trees like me?’ They’re very sensitive to who you are. They’re extremely sensitive to who you are. They respond accordingly. If you make yourself in such a way that the very earth that you walk upon likes you, then you will see everything in your life will become a blessing. If everything around you dislikes you, you will see everything that could be a well-being could become a curse. Right now there is no curse sitting upon human life. It is things that people want, it’s things that people aspire for, things that they work for, strive to have in their life, which turns (turn?) into curses in their life - their work, their property, their relationships, their own body, their own mind which is the cancer of their life. Misery is not raining. Never it’s raining misery. It’s just that things that you like have become source of misery.

    If you strive to make yourself in such a way you cannot be helped… nobody can help liking you, life will blossom better, everything will yield their best to you, not their worst. But if you go by what you like, not always life will yield its best; you may have everything and still have nothing.

    So spiritual process is not about pursuing what you like, it’s about striving to make yourself in such a way even the birds like you, the squirrels like youit’s about making yourself in such a way that every atom in this Existence likes you, wants to yield to you. If Existence does not yield to you, you do what you want, nothing will work in real sense. You may do something, you may become something, you may earn a living, you may make a living, but nothing will happen. You will just go through a cycle without nothing tremendous touching your life.

    For those of you who’re living in the ashram, I want you to learn to stand, walk, sit, breathe, in such a way that even the stones around you like you. ‘How do I know whether they like me or not?’ You will know for sure. If you are sensitive about being like that, you will also know you will also be sensitive enough to know that. You… If you are never sensitive about these aspects, you will not have the sensitivity to know, otherwise distinctly you will know.

    Do not become in such a way everything has to be shouted into your ears. You must become in such a way if you look at somebody before they speak, you know. For this, you need a certain sense of receptivity. Receptivity will not happen to you if you’re too full of yourself. The less you are the more you receive, the more you are less you receive. If you’re too full of yourself, nothing bigger than your nonsense will happen to you. If there’s no such thing as ‘myself’, you simply sit here, the whole existence will dance within you, you will become an instrument of the Creator, otherwise you will be a bundle of thoughts, emotions, prejudices and rubbish.

    This is the choice every human being has - either to exist here as a limb of the Creator, as a Ishanga we’re calling them these days (Laughs), or to exist here as a bundle of thoughts, emotions and nonsense that you have gathered. This choice is available to us every moment of our life continuously choosing, continuously choosing to be like that. If this striving is there it will deliver you to a different place of gracefulness, where every stone, every pebble, every rock, every tree, every atom in the existence speaks to you in a language that you can know, otherwise you are alone in this vast existence feeling constantly insecure, unstable, psychologically challenged. This is the choice. It is not a gift, it is a choice. One makes the right choice, right things will happen; one makes the wrong choice, wrong things will happen. It’s a very fair and just existence, I want you to know. It doesn’t spare anybody. It doesn’t spare anybody. It’s not like a social structure that some people can get away with wrong things. In this existence it doesn’t spare anybody. It doesn’t matter who you are, if you jump off the roof, the earth will break your leg. Yes? Raja Ranka Fakir (Laughs) (Referring to Kabir’s song, indicating all kinds of people) everybody - nobody is spared. (It?) doesn’t matter who you are, no exemptions, and nobody is barred. anybody who is willing, for everybody the possibility is open. For everybody the stick is also there. You make the right choices everything is open; make the wrong choices everything will knead you in a different way.

    So if pain comes, suffering comes, misery happens it’s not time to look around. This is always the problem. If you’re miserable, you think somebody else need (needs?) to be fixed. No, no, no, no. If you’re miserable, this (Referring to oneself) needs to be fixed, not somebody else. ‘No I’m miserable, fix the situation for me’. No, no, no, if you’re miserable, who should be fixed? If you are sick, who should be given the medicine? Shall we give it to somebody else when you’re sick? If you’re hungry, shall we give the food to somebody else? No, it only works if you give it to this (Referring to oneself), isn’t it? If food is like that, medicine is like that, is that not true with every other aspect? That if you’re miserable, something else or somebody else need not be fixed, only this one (Referring to oneself) needs to be fixed. Just to understand this simple fact, people take lifetimes. (Laughs) They think something else has to be fixed.

    On a certain day, Shankaran Pillai went drinking with his friends. Yogis and drunkards both are timeless, you know. They don’t know the passage of time. He went drinking. He intended to go back home at 8’o clock, but drink after drink and time… he became unconscious of time. When he looked at the watch (Gestures) (Laughter), it was 02:30 AM. So he thought it’s really late, and he wants to get back home quickly so he took a short cut. And he was walking through his shortcut on his unsteady legs and he fell into a thorny bush. The whole face was scratched up. So in this condition he went home and tried to find the keyhole. That took another half-an-hour. (Laughter) Opened, went inside, went into the bathroom and looked at himself in the mirror, he was bleeding all over the face. So he opened the medicine chest fixed himself whichever way he could and quietly crawled into the bed and slept. Morning 8’o clock, his wife took a bucket of cold water and threw it in his face; he got up. Said, ‘You idiot, once again drinking?’ He said, ‘No honey, I haven’t touched a drop. Six months ago when I promised, since then I haven’t touched a drop.’ She held him by the shirt, dragged him into the bathroom and showed him, the band-aid was all over the mirror. (Laughter/Applause)

    It doesn’t work like that. Only somebody who is completely unconscious will do such things. If it’s hurting here you’ll fix it there (Gestures), because you’re completely unconscious or inebriated. So whenever you’re miserable you want to fix that one and that one and that one; no, no, no; this one (Referring to oneself) needs to be fixed. If you put band-aid on the mirror it doesn’t heal your wounds. You have to attend to the wound. And both your miseries and joys are caused from inside. So it needs to be attended here, not somewhere else. The sooner you learn this, the more graceful and wonderful your life will become.

  • A fascination with systems thinking inspired me to re-create an image, I'm sure most people are familiar with, and draw new conclusions for myself just from contemplating it for a while.

    During the process of making it, it just made me realized, once again, just in case I hadn't been convinced before, of how utterly integrated we all are into nature from micro to macro. From the network of our nervous systems (nerves layout) to the veins that crisscross the surface of Europa... we are all part of the same story. The same song. The same organic blocs. So, why all the angst in today's world? I don't get it. Do you? #europa #biomimicry # space #fractals.
