"The cure for anything is salt - sweat, tears, or the sea." ~ Isak Dinesen "Surfers are the ‘throw-aheads’ of mankind, not the dregs; they aren’t the black sheep of humanity, but the futurists and they are leading the way to where man ultimately wants to be. The act of the ride is the epitome of ‘be here now,’ and the tube ride is the most acute form of that. Which is: your future is right ahead of you, the past is exploding behind you, your wake is disappearing, your footprints are washed from the sand. It's a non-productive, non-depletive act that's done purely for the value of the dance itself. And that is the destiny of man ... It’s perfectly logical to me that surfing is the spiritual aesthetic style of the liberated self and that’s the model for the future. This dance, is the real point of our existence, rather than the grim accumulation of material wealth. And I hope surfers might awaken wider society to this message - that this in fact was their mission on the planet. Surfing provides instant meditation. It absolutely requires you remain clear and present, in the moment, in the state yogis call “no mind,” undistracted by thoughts of the past or future.” Timothy Leary, Surfer Magazine, January, 1978. ‎"Here's the thing about rights. They're not supposed to be voted on. That's why they call them rights." ~ Rachel Maddow "You cannot teach an ego to be anything but egotistic, even though egos have the subtlest ways of pretending to be reformed." ~ Alan Watts "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." ~ Carl Jung ‎...“So Buddha saw that all his yoga exercises and ascetic disciplines had just been ways of trying to get himself out of the trap in order to save his own skin, in order to find peace for himself. And he realized that that is an impossible thing to do, because the motivation ruins the project. He found out, then, see, that there was no trap to get out of except himself. Trap and trapped are one, and when you understand that, there isn’t any trap left.” ~ Alan Watts
