"All great truths begin as blasphemies"

The Elders today were talking about female power and the need to move outside of the "boat people" (European) conceptions of power and towards a traditional indigenous view.

Rosanne Barr

Marilyn Manson "Making our Lives our Own" 1991
"The perception of power is changing.  Traditionally powerful women were viewed as dangerous, devouring and castrating.  Now we are rediscovery that ancient creator definition, where power meant responsibility, care and nurturing."

Ben Okri "Astonishing the Gods" I highly recommend this book.
"...You are seeking something you've already found, but you don't know it.  Such are the causes of unhappiness."

"Things are what they are.  That is their power...they are themselves.  If they meant something they would be less."
a little pro already!:
"What you see (in the world around you) is what you are, or what you will become."

"On this island of our learning, what you know is something you have to do everyday and every moment."

Listening to Darc Feather "Numbs".  Not sure if I like it or not, but the lyrics are interesting.
