"sometimes the more one grows in religious practice, the more they grow in self righteousness and judgment. this is a sign of a problem inside. it is a sign, that internal cleaning is necessary. growing in religion should only make us grow in compassion, not in judgment. the heart filled with God is softened, not hardened. if it is becoming hardened towards people, perhaps it is not God filling the heart, but rather the self, decorated by the false cloak of piety and religious devotion."
"cause you are what you eat,
you eat what you can
you pray to bless the food,
but first you wash your hands
to wash away them bad spirits,
don’t bring it in your home
once you let them in, they’re stayin’
…evil be gone, say it!"
Nasir Jones on "The Flyest"

"They asked how I was, and I said, well, and thank you,
A need is fulfilled and another is neglected,
When distress is such that my heart becomes constricted,
I say that perhaps one day will bring with it some aid,
My comrade is my cat and my soul’s companions are my books,
And the object of my love is my night-lantern."
