“Community is created by understanding the blocks that we put in the way of community, by understanding the conflicts that arise from our fears and our desires.”

“Community is not formed by a set of slaves, by people demanding that other people make them happy. Community is formed by emperors and princesses. You’re an emperor, not a beggar; you’re a princess, not a beggar. There’s no begging bowl in a true community. There’s no clinging, no anxiety, no fear, no hangover, no possessiveness, no demands. Free people form community, not slaves.”

“What is this thing called ‘culture?’ – Does it mean you’d like to do something because you were conditioned to do it? That you’d like to feel something because you were conditioned to feel it? Isn’t that being mechanical? – Now, if you want to wear your culture the way you wear your clothes, that’s fine.”
