“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Fierce Grace

I finally got to see Ram Dass's documentary, about his stroke. For some reason I had lost my copy of Be Here Now—I wonder whether I gave it to my brother. Upon realizing this, during the documentary, I reordered it... It's a very good book.

My favorite part was when Ram Dass cried with his student whose boyfriend had been murdered in Columbia.
