You will find that none of my work is copyrighted. If you want to know why, watch Jason Silva’s video on ‘Radical Openness’ under ‘Links’. Or read Stephen Johnson’s ‘Where Good Ideas Come From’: “What makes the reef so inventive is not the struggle between the organisms but the way they have learned to collaborate – the coral and the zooxanthellae and the parrotfish borrowing and reinventing each other’s work. This is the ultimate explanation of Darwin’s Paradox: the reef has unlocked so many doors of the adjacent possible because of the way it shares.” The way it shares, dear reader. I share. I am.

“In photographs he is always smiling. The non-dual music of the world is all around him at all times. He has only to turn his mind to it. At any moment he can be reminded of it. He turns with gladness, with joy. Going nowhere. Accomplishing nothing. Arriving back where he started. Transformed.”

“Our age is seeking a new spring of life. I found one and drank of it and the water tasted good.”

“Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit” (Called or not called, the god will be there)

“The shade answered, ‘I bring you the beauty of suffering. That is what is needed by whoever hosts the worm’”
