Kingston Upon Thames, UK Experimenting with my consciousness since July 1993
What I Am
"There is a central human experience which alters all other experiences. It has been called satori in Japanese Zen, moksha in Hinduism, religious enlightenment or cosmic consciousness in the West. .. [It] is not just an experience among others, but rather the very heart of human experience. It is the center that gives understanding to the whole… Once found, life is altered because the very root of human identity has been deepened… The drug LSD appears to facilitate the discovery of this apparently ancient and universal experience."
— Wilson Van Dusen

“When you don’t try to cling onto anything as if it is something different from you, then your whole life has the sensation of flowing like water… It always goes away, but it always comes back… because away and back are two sides of the same thing. Let it go.”

“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Heres Tom with the Weather.”

"Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!"

"Dont' show I yuh teeth, plastic smile can't work
Dont' show I yuh teeth, plastic smile can't work
Take you face from the ground girl, stop wearing frown
I'm not a clown that laughs and jokes, while my structure in smoke
Every man is born of truth, in the natural birth
The things that the 'fari say to do now shows what life really worth
Dont' show I, Don't show I no teeth, teeth can't work"
— Black Uhuru
