"The spirit kingdom is more powerful than the meat world we live in." (Dr. John)

“The spirit kingdom is more powerful than the meat world we live in. We bleed from the spirit kingdom. This meat world we live in is the temple for that. When this meat gets wore out, you’re gonna croak. Once you croak, they bury you six feet in the ground. If you’ve really done right, then you’ll feel like, “it’s all okay. I did the best I could.” If you don’t feel right, if you didn’t do somethin’ that you feel good about, you just wasted a lot of time. That’s where I’m at. I don’t want to be one of them people that wasted a lot of time livin’ the lifestyle of the rich and the wealthy. I would rather find happiness, peace of mind – the things that, to me, are way more important.” – Dr. John
