My friend Jeremy Narby living with the indigenous Indians of the Amazon, while walking from one village to the next commented to his Amazonian friend ” I think I’ll be needing a new axe handle soon, mine is old”.

Have no Fear!
Just Do It!
One last unrelated note to myself: remember that you are not moving through the images, the images are moving through your mind.
I AM responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I have achieved. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked.
