I'm not a role model to my kids. They're a role model to me.
Hard work - I mean, does anybody use that term anymore? Laziness doesn't fly. It's all in the practice. It does take work and it ain't easy - but man, the rewards!
We can't be guided - because we're so far from it. We've so destroyed it. We're so far from that that we can't use it. I mean, Jim Bakker heard from God. What a good job he did!
Very few people are original. There's very little original anything out there. Because to be original means you have to stand alone.
There isn't a religion on earth that isn't damaging to the human race because every one of them is patriarchal and every one eliminates more than half of the human race - women. They are all oppressors of women.
The more you achieve, the more interest it should spark to go further, because there's so much - and I don't mean monetarily and I don't mean in society. This whole experience of living is so rich!
There isn't a theologian in the world who can argue with me on this. God has no gender. If that's the case, then everything needs to be rewritten now, right now.
I do not see myself as an example to anybody for anything. I think that is arrogance at its best. That is obnoxious that is so offensive.
If you want to be fit, there's no magic. There's no mystery. You have to get up and work your ass off - literally.
Everything, everything, everything! I want to know everything. I want the privilege of being a crone.
I don't value authority. I don't value the systems. I don't value patriarchal religion. I don't value the things that diminish you when you do tell the truth. So I'm not scared of the end result, and that is the biggest asset I have.
I would never use the word 'mastery.' I have no respect for that term. I think it is very male and very arrogant. I don't think that there is any such thing as a master. I mean, 'master' suggests that there is something under you - usually a slave. It's the mastery of the world that has gotten us into the mess we're in
I know the guru route, I know you go sit on a mountain. But screw India. I ain't going there.
What's natural and right is to go with the energy of how it all has to work together. What's natural and right is interconnectedness, not individualism. What is natural and right is respect for the system, not killing the system. What's natural and right is love.
The world's not changing. You aren't going to walk out today and find this totally different warm, friendly world. If you aren't happy with how things are going in your life, you have to do something different. You have to do something different to make an impact on the world. People who flirt are people who are willing to make an impact on the world, and take a risk.
If you want a higher power, go to the goddamn sun. Just go to the sun - and stop destroying the ozone layer.
I had to dance topless for two years to make cash to pay my bills and save some money. But it was very enlightening, by the way. I'm talking about light from the gutter.
The nice, blanket, politically correct way to cover God is to say, 'however you choose to describe it.' But somebody needs to start talking about the truth, which is the fact that God is inevitably always referred to as 'He.' The only God that you are really allowed to find is male.
I am not angry, damnit, I am passionate.
I haven't even begun. I'm in the infancy of having the privilege of living this life. I'm still in utero. Oh God Just wait until I'm born
You can be fat and love yourself. You can be fat and have a great damn personality. You can be fat and sew your own clothes. But you can't be fat and healthy.
