It’s like riding a bicycle: One never really forgets.
One just needs the courage to climb aboard.

It’s all a matter of adding details and defining your terms.

A few weeks ago, a nosy polygraph examiner asked me if it was true that my people smoked marijuana during my sermons. Now I could have said “No, that’s against our religion!”, and prayed for the machine to blow a fuse.

But why take a chance? The easiest way to beat a lie detector is simply by telling the truth. You don’t have to tell the WHOLE truth or NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH - just THE TRUTH THE WAY YOU SEE IT. So, I didn’t deny anything. I just said, “No one in my church ingests, inhales, or injects foreign substances or drugs of any kind. It is entirely against our religion and is strictly forbidden.” And I was telling the absolute truth.

What I didn’t mention was that our marijuana isn’t foreign; we grow the shit domestically in the church greenhouse.

Because we’re humans.
And when humans want something really really bad.
We lie.

No, I’m perfectly sane. But then, 94% of psychotics think they’re perfectly sane. So I guess we have to ask ourselves what is “sane”?


from Supernatual Season 8 Episode 2 - What’s Up, Tiger Mummy?

Do what I did - Decide to be fine till the end of the week. Make yourself smile, because you’re alive… And that’s your job. And do it again the next week. Do it right, with a smile. Or don’t do it.

(Reblogged from gemini-moonstone)
Who do I think I am? I think I’m me.
And unless someone comes along and proves me otherwise, that’s who I’m gonna be.
I’m gonna pour another vodka drink,
And I don’t care what you think, everyone’s on something.
And you can find mister popular,
But crack him open girl, and you’ll find something wrong.
If I could cure insecurity, how f**king rich would I be?
I’d sell it all to you and then you’d leave.

CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA. Wouldn’t this look awesome in your collection?

A controversial archaeological myth, 13 crystal heads were found around the world, from America to Tibet, dating between 5.000 to 35,000 years old. They were polished into shape from solid quartz chunks over a period of several hundreds of years. However according to Hewlett Packard engineers, these crystal heads bear no tool marks to tell us how they were made.

These crystal heads are thought to offer spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them, and as such stand not as symbol of death, but of life.

We survive what we can’t change,
So let it fade, just let it go.
We pretend, so nothing does change.
We’re flowers never breaking through the stone.
