You simply have to turn your back on a culture that has gone sterile and dead

 – Terence McKenna

Says Terence McKenna

The central issue of our times is our inability to surrender to
WHAT WE KNOW IS RIGHT!

A new sense of Unity

We need a sense of unity, not an Idea of unity. 

Not an ideology of unity, because if there was an ideology of unity it was Communism
and the pieces are still FALLING from the explosion of that system of thought.

We need a feeling of unity which doesn´t come out of intellectual exhortation,
but out of a personal act of courage, made by the individual.

AN ACT OF COURAGE WHICH INVOLVES SURRENDER!

Surrender is the opposite side of the coin of Ego!

The central issue of our times is our inability to surrender to what we know is right.

The question is, can we change our minds fast enough?

The hour is late, the clock is ticking. We will be judged very harshly if we fumble the ball.

Let´s not whore ourselves to nitwit ideologies, let´s not give the control to the
least among us!

You simply have to turn your neck to a culture that has gone sterile and dead and
get with the programme of a living world, and re-empowerment of the imagination.

– Terence McKenna

Reclaim your real life

“Create your own road show – the Nexus of space and time, where you are Now.
Now is the most immediate sector of your universe and if you´re worrying about somebody else, – pop stars, politicians or whoever -, then you are disempowered,
you´re giving it all away to icons which are maintained by an electronic media,
so that you wanna dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit brained, this kind of thinking.

THAT IS ALL CULTURAL DIVERSION AND WHAT IS REAL IS YOU:

Your friends, your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes,
your plans, your fears.

But we are told NO!

We’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”

– Terence McKenna

Culture is not your friend

Culture is for other people´s
convenience
and
the convenience of
various institutions.

Culture insults you
It disemopowers you
It uses and
abuses you.

It invites people
to diminish themselves
and
dehumanize themselves
by behaving like machines.

 – Terence McKenna

Says Terence McKenna

“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do, is to bring back a new idea, because our world is in danger by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness. And so to whatever degree any one of us, can bring back a small piece of the picture and contribute it to the building of the new paradigm, then we participate in the redemption of the human spirit, and that after all it what it’s really all about.”
