What’s the Ride?

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real, because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: ‘Is this real? Or is this just a ride?’ And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say ‘Hey! Don’t worry, don’t be afraid – ever – because… this is just a ride.’ And we kill those people….

‘Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.’

It’s just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that – ever notice that? – and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter, because… it’s just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over – not one human being excluded – and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace”. – Bill Hicks

  1. Have enjoyed reading your blog with all those great quotes but especially looking back on those photos of Nepal. I was there late last year and it has claimed a special place in my heart – so sad when I heard of the earthquake and the devastation it left behind! I guess we were lucky to have seen it in better days.

    • Thank you Donna for you kind words!
      You are so right regarding Nepal, I do feel very lucky, as well as for leaving just a few days before the earthquake struck … Editing and posting this photo collection was a bit heartbreaking … However as an eternal optimist I believe that instead of mourning for what is now gone, it is best to focus on what is left, to focus on the people, on the heritage that survived and on the future of Nepal as a heavenly unique, cultural and spiritual destination!
