In 1995, Tupac was sued by the estate of a slain Texas Trooper. The Trooper’s family claimed Tupac’s music incited police shootings.

"I always wonder, what do other people do with their lives? Does their existence too seem to drag on like mine? Do they too need to hold their sanity like a glass box held tight to their chests, protecting it from the knocks of the world? What do they do, where do they hide when nothing makes sense? Or is it just me?"

"No. It’s not just you."

"So we all go about our lives hiding our cracks with peeling plaster, turning our heads from the dark in the hope that by doing so it will cease to exist? Is our universal brokenness an ineffable secret?"

“The ego says, ‘I shouldn’t have to suffer,’ and that thought makes you suffer so much more. It is a distortion of the truth, which is always paradoxical. The truth is that you need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it.”

“Don’t look for peace. Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now; otherwise, you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance. Forgive yourself for not being at peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace. Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace. This is the miracle of surrender”
