„When you’re a charmer
you hate yourself
a victim of sideshow hypnosis
like everyone else.“

"Charmer"
Song lyrics, Charmer (2012)
Contexte: When you’re a charmer
the world applauds
they don’t know that secretly charmers
feel like they’re frauds When you’re a charmer
you hate yourself
a victim of sideshow hypnosis
like everyone else.

Psychomagic: The Transformative Power of Shamanic Psychotherapy (2010)
Contexte: Family hurts us, it is like a trap, it shortens our life, it bothers us psychically and socioculturally, it forces us into a limited level of consciousness, it robs us of our essential self, it inculcates ideas in us that are not our own, and at the moment when we find ourselves in the world, all of this collapses and we have to build a life from scratch. We forgive ourselves because no one is guilty. Generation after generation, each one is victim to the one before. We end up with many centuries of being victims, but in the end you understand that there is no reason for resentment.
