Being more mature now, I’ve managed to make peace with my past, as it’s making peace with me. Certainly there’s a mutual gain for reflecting on both phases of my life, and although I consider the here and now perhaps to be more important, there are still many people who appreciate my past ephemeral stages and the lessons they represent.
I think that our politics everywhere are gonna be going through this bumpy phase. But as long as we stay true to our Democratic principles, as long as elections have integrity, as long as we respect freedom of speech, freedom of religion, as long as there are checks and balances in our governments so that the people have the ability to not just make judgments about how well government is serving them but also change governments if they’re not serving them well, then I have confidence that over the long term, progress will continue.
The idea that you live your life in phases – I’ve never bought that. I feel like I’m the same person who sat in at the draft board in 1965, I’m the same person who joined a fraternity, I’m the same person who got an MFA at Bennington, and I’m the same person who founded Weather Underground. My values are still intact.
Inspiration is not inside of us. Inspiration comes from outside. It comes from our spiritual guides and from different energies that are in the universe.

I guess I missed out on my Kevin-The-Teenager phase.
You see, Greg, my mother is going through a feline phase. Blinky is a Persian,’ Hale said simply, as if that should explain everything. ‘Binky has a nasty habit of shedding all over the living room furniture, you see.’ Gregory Wainwright nodded as if he understood perfectly. ‘And so we had to get new living room furniture, which, unfortunately, does not go with the Monet.’ Kat stood there for a moment, staring into that small window of the world where someone would tire of a Monet simply because it clashed with the couch.
A lot of people don’t understand the building phase. They don’t have the blueprint, but we do. With us having the blueprint and knowing what we want to build, it’s not how it’s supposed to be built, but what we want to build. I think it makes everything easy for us to stay focus and have that tunnel vision.
The master maker of the human body did not create you and then run off and leave you masterless. He stayed on the job as innate, as the fellow within, as nerve transmission controlling every function of life, as spirit from above-down, inside-out, expressing, creating, exploring, directing you in every field and phase of experience so that your home is truly the world and the world is your home.
