You don't need religion to have morals. If you can't determine right from wrong, you lack empathy and common sense, not religion.
Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.
There are two kinds of arrogance, one where you are unequal to the task and one where your dreams are too big, the former is just common plain stupidity but the ladder is a rare species difficult to find. They are identical in that both kinds are fools... but isn't the foolishness of the few a more precious commodity than the wisdom of the masses?
Everything from this point forward is up to you, do it all exactly as you desire, that is the true meaning of pleasure, pleasure leads to the experience of joy, and joy will lead you to happiness. Your path is now clear, so clear there's no longer any need to hesitate.
Catch me behind stage @lightsallnight tonight if you're there. Let's celebrate the new year together!

If you can read this, your life is pretty awesome. Setting aside our first world problems and pettiness, if you are online reading this, you have both electricity and wifi or access to them. Odds are you are in a shelter of some sort, or on a smart phone (and then kudos to you for reading this on the go). Life might bump and bruise us, it may not always go the way we plan and I know I get frustrated with mine, but here’s the thing You are alive. Because you are alive, everything is possible.
The covers of most men’s and women’s magazines have similar headlines: get great abs and have amazing sex.
Most of us fear if we express the depth of our love for someone, it makes us look vulnerable. Be brave, darling. Don’t worry. Even if they leave you after knowing how much you loved them, that’s their loss. Be proud of the kind of love you can give somebody. If you still love again and again and again after being broken and being abandoned, you’re the bravest person I know. Do you want to be a brave person? You can be. You just have to breathe and start again. Pick up that phone and tell somebody that you’re through with them, don’t be afraid of wanting peace. You are a pearl in a world of strings. Don’t forget that.
I gotta admit, I'm a bit insane. Like there is a crazy to my crazy. But not in a bad way like psycho or something. In a good way like I wish I where Peter Pan kind way. Wish I could fight pirates, dance around fires with a tribe of Indians, hang out with a fairy who has a crush on me, lead a band of renegade homeless kids, think a happy thought so that I could fly. So that I could be forever young in Neverland. So that I could fall in love with Wendy. So that I could chase my shadow and fall in love with you. -Jay
"Every living being is 'an engine geared to the wheelwork of the 'YOU-niverse'. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance." – Nikola Tesla
A philosopher is someone who lives according to a way of life, whose focus is upon resolving existential questions about the human condition.
When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.
Find out what you love and let it kill you.
