    If Otter has swam across your path; it is time to allow yourself the freedom and pleasure of relaxing and letting go of all your daily concerns. The power of otter is in the knowing that you have to take care of yourself first in order to be of use to others. Go with the natural flow and ebbs and tides of your life and find joy and wonder in the small things that give you pleasure as an adult and that gave you pleasure as a child.

    Alternatively otter may be reminding you that universal acceptance of “what is” in your life is the only way for you to move forward. This form of embracing the good with the bad and seeking out the joy of the moment will manifest a new freedom of love and acceptance. Honor the right of everything and everyone to be as they are. Simply allow things to unfold in your life.

    Occasionally Otter is here to remind you that you need to rekindle lost relationships in a playful and upbeat manner.

    Temple of Hip Hop
    The Temple of Hip Hop is a ministry, archive, School, and Society (M.A.S.S.) founded by KRS-One. Its goal is to maintain and promote Hiphop Culture. The Temple of Hip Hop maintains that Hip Hop is a genuine political movement, religion, and culture, as it has been accepted by the United Nations as a religion. The Temple of Hiphop calls on all Hip Hop fans to celebrate Hip Hop Appreciation Week. It encourages DJs and MCs to teach people about the culture of Hiphop, to write more socially conscious songs, and radio stations to play more socially conscious hip hop. Hip Hop Appreciation Week is celebrated on the third week of May each year. Hip Hop History Month (November), founded by the Universal Zulu Nation, is also recognized.

    Out of the available choices, I chose Henry David Thoreau as the least offensive. Though there are many differences in our values and political philosophy, I like to think they are not so terribly distinct as to be completely incongruous. Kinda reminds me of a proto-hippie if ever there could have been such a subculture in early 1800s America.

    Amber casts infinity of shadows, and my Avalon had cast many of its own, because of my presence there. I might be known on many earths that I had never trod, for shadows of myself had walked them, mimicking imperfectly my deeds and my thoughts.

    I didn't see a choice for "other".

    I relate the most with Lao Tzu (Stephen Mitchell translation) but he would be appalled at the idea of being a guru.

    *there are typos in the link above.

    I like this translation too

    "Thus it is said:
    The path into the light seems dark,
    the path forward seems to go back,
    the direct path seems long,
    true power seems weak,
    true purity seems tarnished,
    true steadfastness seems changeable,
    true clarity seems obscure,
    the greatest seems unsophisticated,
    the greatest love seems indifferent,
    the greatest wisdom seems childish."

    "an intellectual or spiritual guide or leader."

    Intellectual guide: Brilliand
    Intellectual leader: I don't know; maybe some webcomic person.
    Spiritual guide: the Baptist pastor
    Spiritual leader: Jesus
