A Quote by Satprem on ancestors, impotence, belief, faith, and consciousness
This impotence, however, is not irreversible, since it is based mainly on our belief that we are impotent; we are a little like someone who has inherited a pair of crutches from his ancestors, and hence loses faith in his own legs. The point is to have faith in our own consciousness--it has not only legs, but hundreds of eyes and arms, and even wings."
