“We, you might say, are the very first generation – certainly mine is – to come along and say, ‘Well, yeah, whatever. I don’t really classify myself based on my genetic heritage, nor do I evaluate myself based on my economic situation; therefore, that immediately releases me from lots of systems.’
[U]nderstand that you’re not a subject of any monarch, that’s a fiction. You’re also not a citizen… If you are a free human sovereign being, you are not a citizen – that’s a fiction.

And so the path of the mystic, and this is a sacred and wonderful thing, is to see that that is not true, that you are not trapped in the theater; only your mind is trapped here.

So, the point of it isn’t to get out and escape – it’s to use this place as the very instrument itself for transformation.”
