My Favorite Bill Hicks Video – It’s Just a Ride

posted in: All Posts, Musings | 2

Human. Hilarious. Honest. Hicks.

He smoked. He swore. He challenged mainstream society and consumerism and inspired people to think for themselves. He was criticized and censored when he was alive. Now, thanks to the miracle of YouTube, his message lives on.

This is my favorite Bill Hicks YouTube moment. It is titled, "It's Just a Ride" and I can't help but get all "yoga dorky" when I watch it.

I especially love this part:

"It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one." -Bill Hicks


What do you think? Did you notice the yoga?


I choose LOVE,
