So I’m leaving for South Carolina tonight. I’ve set up some sort of a queue for you all, although I haven’t had the time to do much. Anyway, I’m uncertain as to whether or not I’ll have internet there, so if not, I shall be back on in a week! Leave me a message or somethin’ while I’m away! (:
…I will miss you with a strange sense of detachment. It will be at times when I am doing nothing, and suddenly you will make your presence felt throughout me. Maybe it will be that I still haven’t wrapped my head around your absence. I will know that it was for the best, but I will still wonder as to how my life would have been if things had been different.
I will miss you with bitterness, with darkness and anger I did not know I possessed. I will think of you in my darkest hour and will curse you for everything that is currently going wrong in my life and everything that will go wrong…
Our culture, self-toxified by the poisonous by-products of technology and egocentric ideology, is the unhappy interior of the dominator attitude that alteration of consciousness by the use of plants and substances is somehow wrong, onanistic, and perversely antisocial. I will argue that suppression of shamanic gnosis, with its reliance and insistence on ecstatic dissolution of the ego, has robbed us of life’s meaning and made us enemies of the planet, of ourselves, and our grandchildren. We are killing the planet in order to keep intact the wrongheaded assumptions of the ego-dominator cultural style.
It’s true. Human beings are meant to take care of themselves and each other in communal settings growing food and living alongside the earth, not greasing corporate and societal machines with their blood. Fuck that.
rainbow-children replied to your post: i don’t fucking want a job
right there with ya, holy shit. it’s actually kind of relieving that i’ve been denied by every place i apply to haha
Haha seriously! I can’t stand how everyone is forced to work just so they’re able to make a living. We’re not meant to do that, but oh well, just gotta go with the flow I guess. Something good will come out of it.
“Modern schools and universities push students into habits of depersonalised learning, alienation from nature and sexuality, obedience to hierarchy, fear of authority, self objectification, and chilling competitiveness. These character traits are the essence of the twisted personality-type of modern industrialism. They are precisely the character traits needed to maintain a social system that is utterly out of touch with nature, sexuality, and real human needs.”—Arthur Evans (via ninefoldgoddess) (via sun-hawk, slychedelic)
