A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on worry, self talk, insight, and rumination

The first thing to do is to break the circuit between bile and brain by resolutely turning one’s thoughts away from the vexatious subject.  This does not means finding convincing arguments, but simply breaking off the contact by, for example, forcing oneself to careful observation of some object or another.  When the train of thought has thus been redirected, a few moments of mediation will prevent the reaction of the bile from continuing.

            This small act of control has the highest importance, for it ensures that when the anarchistic Automaton attacks the conscious self, victory shall go to the latter.

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on waste and automatic

The first stage in taking control of the Automaton is to stop the tyranny of habit and the waste of vital force.  Vital force is precious and should not be expended thoughtlessly.  One can economize it by avoiding futile talk and argument, useless preoccupations, and unnecessary violent movements.  Actions should be carefully watched to prevent their becoming automatic, and one should have the courage to alter one’s way of doing them temporarily and from time to time.  The limbs should be trained to independent movement, so they can perform different actions simultaneously.

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on battle, will, and automatic behavior

Our aim is to realize the suprahuman state by awakening and uniting the Permanent Witness with that of the highest Self.

            ...To pursue this path without being deflected, the first requirement is the gradual destruction of automatic behavior, by learning to recognize the drama which is fought out in a human being, to know the combatants and their weapons.

            This drama is the duel between the two wills, the Personal Will and the Will to the Light.

            Many human beings know nothing of this drama: those whose brain-consciousness makes so much noise that the two witnesses cannot be heard.  In these, who are legion, the Automatic Self reigns uncontrolled, having nothing to restrain it but an atavistic moral sense and the conventional religious or social rules of its education.  Moral problems, for such people, can only be a choice between obeying their established moral code and breaking it at the bidding of self-interest or instinct.

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on finding god and enlightenment

No earthly man can perceive Spirit except in his own flesh.  And this is no mere literary simile, but a most positive reality.  You can only find your God by generating Him in yourself, in the darkness of your own body.

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on frantic, hurry, frenzy, and senses

The life of the senses, when indulged so far, becomes extremely exacting.  It is simple enough to arouse one’s physical appetites, but not so easy to control them.  Nerves trained to excitement feel an unhealthy craving for it, and when the life of brain and senses has been accustomed to be fed continually from without by an unending flow of secondhand thoughts and images, of catchy tunes and twitching rhythms, it calls for these things because they render individual effort superfluous, and shake to pieces any notion of real values.  That is our modern world, dancing the infernal roundelay of haste, ever more deeply involved in the quest for variety and novelty.

            A mind trained to these frantic gymnastics will clearly show two characteristics; It will be insatiable, always preferring quantity to quality, and it will suffer from the need for speed.

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on confusion, discernment, and religion

... For he will know that behind all religions there is only one Truth, and the revelation of this truth through their different myths and symbols brings harmony instead of discord.  This clarification will only be resisted by those who want to obscure the original teaching in order to assure their own control over the minds and consciences of men.

            The difficulty of the present age is caused by the confused variety of beliefs and opinions.  The restlessness of our daily life, and the falsity of conventional artificial standards in morality and aesthetics, have corrupted our vision, until it seems that nothing short of catastrophe can arouse us to a truer awareness.  We confuse the discernment of reality with our personal opinion, and intellectual judgment with recognition of truth.
