Bob Marley - WarVideo (5min 36sec): "War" Bob Marley & The Wailers. "What life has taught me, I would like to share with, Those who want to learn...,

Journey To SelfA story video (8min 21sec) by Carla Sweet set to the music of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Man must listen to his true self to become the person he was born to be.

D. H. Lawrence (1923): "Sometimes snakes can't slough. They can't burst their old skin. Then they go sick and die inside the old

skin and nobody gets to see the ne

w pattern. It takes a real desperate recklessness to burst your old skin at last. You simply don't care what happens to you, if you rip yourself in two, so long as you do get out. It also needs a real belief in the new skin. Otherwise you are likely never to make the effort. Then you gradually sicken and go rotten and die in the old skin."

Carl J. Jung (1928): "...the self is our life's goal. For it is the completest expression of that fateful combination we call individuality."

Ooh, what a waste of Army dreamers..."
