Favorite Quotes

[06:00] It was a culture of recovery and stimulance, and that’s a sick animal… My right is to go to sleep, happy, and to wake up vibrant, and confident that every possibility on exploring what life's about is mine. I don’t have to pay rent for that, tax for that, none of that. It’s mine.

[12:00] I believe that there’s billions being spent on making sure people are miserable, in order for other people to feel in a contrast to that, to feel special, like if smiling is an exclusivity.

[22:00] I was given this intelligence and this strength, for service, and only when I’m in service I realize my reality. Other than that, I’m just a f** consumer.

[30:00] I don’t have any success, I’m just here. What gives me a buzz, is being surrounded with other people, that are healthy and here too. You can choose to keep people afloat and be surrounded with little boats of people having a great time, or be the only yatch in the desert.

[01:10:00] I hate the models that deform human beings, that’s what I’m in war with. Those behaviours an protocols that seat into our behaviour and we hang on to and call it culture. That ruins the art, the flexibility and the fluidity of human beings. I’m in war with that.
