" I see all this potential, and I see squandering.  God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables—slaves with white collars.  Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.  We're the middle children of history, man.  No purpose or place.  We have no Great War.  No Great Depression.  Our Great War's a spiritual war . . . our Great Depression is our lives.  We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars.  But we won't.  And we're slowly learning that fact.  And we're very, very pissed off."
—Fight Club, 1999

  • ..this blog stems from a recognition that our true nature is far more creative, loving and unlimited than we could possibly imagine... and it transforms everything... a practical, generic solution to all our problems.

    These are just my lesson notes as I try to  be true to that recognition... and  learn to fly.  So it's quite possible that everything here may be wrong.
