It is not. My heart is free. I am smiling. And I love God.
The ramblings of a madman being not far from the laughter of a child. So God bless you in finding your own rainbows.
This reads like something from /r/iamverysmart.

people who have smart things to say say them clearly

people who are full of shit obfuscate what they say in ramblings

between the lines he's saying the pro-democracy, equality for all masses are a mob of group-thinkers who are just mad they can't control Trump's hatred and dictator-style, and that protesting racist speech is equal to being anti-free speech. what an idiot.

He doesn't have any tattoos, but if he did - that would probably be one of them.

Another tattooed philosophy lesson:



williampcorgan
Those that want to stay in the dream, dystopic and frightening, and trusting others to translate it's harm and godlessness, simply will. No matter how many bells are rung. For their comfort is in their slumber, and they do not wish to be woken.
And I confess, there was a time where I thought I had the responsibility to ring those same alarms. But this, too, was a misunderstanding I'd held; of Love, of responsibility, and of a deeper affection for *all* humankind. For how can you believe you are a child of God, and do nothing?
So to trust in Spirit requires an incredible leap of faith, and since I have taken that step a few years back I live in a different dream, one where I am awake but still dreaming, knowing that I am both in the illusion as well as gentle observer of it.
Generally, I assume that those who can hear such a tune are awake, too, and navigating their own maze. But this does not mean I am unconscious of how such gnosis, or mysticism plays to a crowd that just can't hear; and that of a truth I don't claim possession, or even authorship of. For how could a true-true message, as true as truth can be, come from someone so flawed as I?

translation:
i'm better than most people because now i'm woke and believe in god. the truth i wish to convey is lost on people who don't believe in god. only god can speak the truth.

Billy and Jimmy posted the Siva video on Instagram. D'arcy obviously is prominent in it. It made me disappointed all over again that she's not involved in the reunion. It kind of seems like a bad idea to post old videos, because it reminds fans all over again that D'arcy isn't involved.

So... bullshit mysticism and spirituality designed to appeal to a certain audience too stupid to understand how empty his words are. Uses the same psychological rhetoric as Jones on Infowars actually, flattering those who subscribe to his bullshit as somehow being awake, understanding truth, above the slumbering crowd.

Why does Augustus call his grandfather "Papa"? Does he only look younger than Billy Corgan?
What does he call his dad then, does he have to call him "William"? Or also "douchebag"?

With the genius (and 'Papa' to Augustus), @gillesmendel at the Driehaus Museum, as Gilles brother Marc Breitman and his Nada are being honored. A fantastic evening!
