Notes from my 47th trip (Ritual Shipibo)

I find it interesting that the preparation for a spiritual cleansing is almost exactly the same as a prizefight.

In order to be a good translator, one must know the many different ways the same word can be used.

Be grateful for the things we take for granted.

What becomes your standards of life all depends on how you train yourself.

At times, Flora is as immature as a child. Other times, she shows me my childishness. What a fabulous love we share.

Don't cheat and don't make someone else into a cheater. That's basically my M.O. in dealing romantically w/ the opposite sex.

It is important to know where you are.

Being dedicated to your work is the key to life.

You know, there always reaches a point where you can't stand the person you are dating. You reach a realization that you either leave it, or try to work through it. At least in the case of true love, leaving it is a familiar path w/ a known destination. It comes down to whether you are willing to cooperate w/ the world or force it to work only to your standards. And that boiled down to how selfish or selfless you are.

I don't think I'd call myself strong, but I am confident in my ability to adapt.

You know, sometimes in a relationship, the other person passes through a time where they can't give a lot. The duty is to give when they can only receive.

Flora showed up to my apartment in turquoise spandex and a pink shirt. Yeah. This is who I tried to marry.

You know, the world functions on give and take, and most of the time, the receiving does not come from the same person you gave. I just assume the balance is even, rather than trying to keep count.
