🧠Powerful Quotes 🧠 (many more but I ran out of space)

 “I wasn’t so concerned there was a path for me, but I knew I had passions and, if left alone, I would follow those.”

 “I was given a basket of odd tools, and psychedelics have allowed me to embrace them with abandon rather than fear.”

 “Your minds are slippery eels with thorns in them. They don’t want to be held, but with psychedelics if you apply the notice-but-not-apprehend it’s like grasping sand. If you hold too tight it runs out of your fingers but if you cup your hand, you can hold it.”

 “My job is to see if I can live a harmless life as best as I’m able and exit with the least sins on my soul as I can and as few dents left in others.”

 “I had to come out, I had to exist. It was like a pressure behind a wall that had been building up behind a dam for 48 years.”

 “I had to embrace not just being trans but that there were consequences for my existence that were not under my control.”    

 “Wouldn’t it be nice if we could put 1,000 years of evil behind us in three generations of focus.”
