A Quote by Rob Brezsny on facts, divination, omens, and synchronicity

Factual information alone isn't sufficient to guide you through life's labyrinthine tests.  You need and deserve regular deliveries of uncanny revelation.  One of your inalienable rights as a human being should therefore be to receive a mysteriously useful omen every day of your life.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on sins, problems, improvement, and rowdy bliss

Will you have the stamina and inspiration necessary to dream up bigger, better, more original sins and wilder, wetter, more interesting problems?  Do you realize how demanding it will be to turn yourself into a wildly disciplined, radically curious, fiercely tender, ironically sincere, ingeniously loving, aggressively sensitive, blasphemously reverent, lustfully compassionate master of rowdy bliss?

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on stories, music, reality, example, gorgeous geniuses, nourishment, and media fast

The poet Muriel Rukeyser said the universe is composed of stories, not of atoms.  The physicist Werner Heisenberg declared that the universe is made of music, not of matter.
And we believe that if you habitually expose yourself to toxic stories and music, you could wind up living in the wrong universe, where it's impossible to become the gorgeous genius you were born to be.
That's why we implore you to nourish yourself with delicious, nutritious tales and tunes that inspire you to exercise your willpower for your highest good.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on media, news, tv, movies, books, newspapers, bad news, publishing, murder, addiction, self-hatred, sexual pathology, shame, betrayal, extortion, robbery, cancer, arson, torture, life, and meaning

The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18.  This is considered normal.  Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other.  If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience.  The authors of thousands of books pu

Enjoy saying "no!" but don’t make it the wellspring of your vitality.  Be fueled by blood-red yeses...
