Writings: You, who I love enough to have suffered for

You, who I love enough to have suffered for…



Knowing who you are is the root of all peace and of all real progress. 
 



Add foam to the waves, not ripples 
 



To know a piece of eternity, remember, there is only NOW, and the states of forgetting or remembering this.
The state of forgetting leads to atrophy. The state of remembering leads to a trophy, eternal life.
 


The way of love involves not allowing other people (or organizations, or nations) to jack you of your pride. 
You will always find people willing to do so, for thieves do not steal money and goods only, they steal what is of great value. 
Your pride and the dignity it breeds is of great value and if you are willing to easily surrender it then you do not deserve it, 
and you deserved to be jacked. Post-modern prophets 'the beastie boys' said it many years ago: 
'some times you've got to fight for your right to party!'


Psychic draining is a form of vampirism


Real vampires do not steal from the heart, they fear the heart, they steal from the mind


Those who always look for the easy way, cheat themselves. 
Do not begrudge the heavy lifting required to place your life where you know it belongs.
The more effort you put into a thing, The more grace you receive from a thing.
Life sees you, as you are willing to see yourself.


A man who stays close to his woman, stays close to his God.


Temptation exists to balance us. Respect temptation, do not fear it. 
Fearing it already causes the balance to be lost.


The whole jungle suffers when the lion is unsure.


You can squeeze an orange for all its worth and you will never squeeze out apple juice.
A thing is what a thing is and self acceptance in tandem with self acknowledgement is the first key to fulfillment. 
Grab who you are by the handle and pull yourself up to your dream and when in doubt, pray.


Thanks to radio - Live 365 - for supporting my music. And thanks to all internet and satellite stations playing my music.


To my college babies (and your sexy, fertile minds): 
Study hard, it's good for the soul
Party hard, it's good for the economy!


Gratitude to Billboard Magazine for updating the Maitreya file and bringing me into the 21st century.


We created religion to justify our two natures, 
our innate cruelty and our deep seated need to be loved by the higher power our lower reason denies us.


Although I never met her in person, it is still wonderful to be on the same planet as Maya Angelou at the same time. 
She is one of our living Buddhas.


Our attitude is the Architect of our fate.


I believe that AIDS was man made and created out of bigotry. 
Being gay is not an abomination, being a hateful bigot is.


I am not gay, so being gay isn't normal.…..for me.
But it is the most natural thing in the world..…if you are. 
The truth is in our natures, not in another man's opinion.


Our greed and bigotry are the main causes of terrorism, the rest is just spin.


All '-isms (racism, sexism, age-ism)' are corruptions of the spirit.
We are each unique in our own right and we are wrong to assume that we know better than the blueprint. 
If it exists, if it is alive to your senses, it was on the blueprint (the matrix). We do not have to like it, 
we are not required to like it. Yet accepting it moves our life forward.



Earth = Bach 
Air = Mozart
Fire = Beethoven 
Water = Debussy 
Ether = Mahler 
 


Go on, I dare you 
Be a lover and a fighter


Be patient with yourself
As you go through 
The chord changes
And key shifts of life
Show compassion for 
your state as your most
basic survival instinct
and when the time is ripe
the fruit does not have to be
plucked, it simply falls


I spoke some time ago
To a gentleman of 68 
Who told me that 
To a man his age when looking back
42 was the prime of his manhood
but at that age he thought he was 
getting old and missed out 
on using those years 
as he wished he had.
I was moved by this
and the next day went out
and did a long early morning run
listening to the sound 
of my feet beating my gratitude
into the ground.


Beauty moves us 
Because it carries 
Within itself
Such sweet conflict


A man really has no enemies
He just has chess pieces 
On a board that challenge him 
To a better game of chess
Should he see them as enemies
He's already down in the game


The height of achievement 
Is in choosing a life 
Where you can actually 
Get away with 
Being yourself


YOUNG PLAYERS ALERT!
The girl you have to convince 
Always make you pay for it
In the end


Longevity is not measured in the years 
But in the amount of life in the years


The next pearl is always within our reach


When it is time for us to turn our vehicles back in, 
we won't be asked if we damaged the car 
but whether we enjoyed the ride.


Michael Bublé does a great job with a great song. Hopefully his label will be smart enough not to pigeonhole him 
into too small a marketing category. His talent seems bigger than a small vision will be able to fulfull. 
Besides, Eagles do not like to be pigeonholed. Good luck to him!


Inspired lunacy is the foundation of new thought


Even snowflakes 
Do not let the wind 
Bully them into 
Changing their shape


The first bite kills the rabbit 
But the second bite might 
Wake him back up again


Music is to the soul what blood is to the body
Music is emotional sign language


Our seasons 
May be tough 
But after we 
Survive them
So are we


Marc Bolan was as funky a guitar player as anyone.
Everything he played dripped groove.
His riffs were so fat they had to be declared at customs.
And one of my all time favourite songwriters.
His lyrics are great for the nonchalance of their free association
and earthy, sexy phrases that stick in your mind like cotton candy.


Patience brings us closer to our goal.


A man on fire is given more room to move.


To my brothers:

Stray no lower than 18
it simply isn't wise
nor is it ripe
it doesn't even register yet 
with a credit card swipe
and brothers 
get furious 
when their sisters 
are tight 
but tucked in 
another's bed 
for the night. 
better to wait 
until the sun rise
when what once were her bangs 
are now explosions of sighs

though atlas may be a chiropractor's dream
when his posture 
shakes off
what's left of 
his cough 
and he drops the world 
his wings will 
take off

after dolphins dream 
they wake up 
and move slow 
like arrow
knowing 
that since 
space is wide
focus must be 
narrow

Mozart knew that he was a vehicle of God
he also knew that he couldn't find a job
and even then bitches would get on 
his nerves 
demanding the attention the music 
deserves
creditors banging to get in the door 
critics firing duck shots at the notes in the score
most of all around him 
jealousy and greed 
one less mouth testifying was
one less mouth to feed
once, he could write 
left alone 
until the day went
but that all changed once he acquired
an agent!

Be who you are at all costs, it's the only way you'll get out alive.


Our integrity stamps us with knowing that we are more than just a number. 
Integrity is the fruit of self regard and respect for one's true nature.

As long as my contradictions exist,
I know that I am present 
To my own life

I love you


The collaboration between Miles Davis and wine heals many wounds.


Goddesses are beyond race.

if Y

I finally made 
last april 8th 
contact with 
the dreamer
he who can
dream me 
and be me
at the same time

The mystery of the dreamer is that his own birth precedes his fathers'


Heaven is a state of acceptance.


A good idea will always draw fools to screw it up.
That's how you know it's a good idea!


The Arts are the bloodlines of humanity explained.


Without love it doesn't matter how much you have, you still have nothing but a bunch of stuff.


The only promised land promised to you is yours and only you can find it.

it may look
like a duck
quack
like a duck
and swim like a duck
but if it doesn't
dream 
like a duck
it's not a duck

I am not a man 
I am a panther
dreaming 
that he is a man

Step up! Your community needs you! If you don't come to drive the bus, ain't no room for you on the bus!


Respects and best wishes to Chuck D, one of our prophets and innovators. 
American national radio will benefit from his perspective, no doubt.


Rufus Wainwright has a voice to still a troubled mind.


Ridicule is the receipt of progress.


Women are bitches because we don't get it!


The actors journey into a character's psyche is the journey to self-substantiation and mimics the process 
we will all commit ourselves to at some point if we wish to be free.


Psychotherapists in the future will play a much larger role in the treatment of cancer.

what is the last wish 
of a fish
if not to go
overboard ?

Our ghosts are our borders.


What kills ones pride also awakens a new pride.


§

look at her!
just bursting to be seen 
to not look at her would be mean
and slowly fades in 
the borders of 
another restless 
dream

Congratulations to master Prince and his new project 'Musicology'. 
It is worthy of his lofty reputation, a well deserved reputation.


Delusion is the blueprint of future possibilty. The only difference between a dream and a delusion is your effort.


Do love-handles mean extra emotional baggage?


Is there anything more spiritual than an orgasm?

I started out with 
Rock-and-roll 
dreams

The longer you wait, the more you get out of it.


We are always wise to consider well our ancesters and the sacrifices they've made on behalf of our blood. 
That we are even THIS FAR is a credit to their efforts. All future joys are sourced from yesterday's tears.


Nonsense is a better sense than no sense at all!


The sun is but a big holographic projector and programmed into its matrix is the blueprint for all life possibilities in its solar domain.


A well chosen wife says everything about a man that needs to be said.


All praises be to the name of your God and your ancestors!
