A Quote by Marion Woodman on womenswisdom, canadian, jungian analyst, and author

Healing depends on listening with the inner ear - stopping the incessant blather, and listening. Fear keeps us chattering - fear that wells up from the past, fear of blurting out what we really fear, fear of future repercussions. It is our very fear of the future that distorts the now  that could lead to a different future if we dared to be whole in the present.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on life, imagination, imaginary, change, parting, leaving, flux, distance, fate, time, crossroads, fiction, past, present, future, adventure, character, picaresque, road, travel, author, writing, luke soloman, and free novel

I didn’t look back. I couldn’t. Such is life, imaginary or otherwise: a continuous parting of ways, a constant flux of approximation and distanciation, lines of fate intersecting at a point which is no-time, a theoretical crossroads fictitiously “present,” an unstable ice floe forever drifting between was and will be. The Adventure called and I followed with my thumb like a character being written by an intractable author. Which, of course, I was.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, sol luckman, luke soloman, fiction, nonfiction, author, character, personage, disclaimer, reality, fantasy, truth, imagination, writing, and novel

DISCLAIMER: This is a work of fiction insofar as we are all, each and every one of us, including yours truly, and including you (perhaps most of all), works of fiction. Beyond that, it is pure and absolute nonfiction; and though its “author” technically never existed, at least not in the dense, empirical, flesh-and-blood sense, the personages and events herein depicted are drawn straight from life, as it were. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual places, living or dead, while purely coincidental from the point of view of intention, should surprise no one.

A Quote by Huston Smith on pain, sex, time, huston smith, gerald heard, author, polymath, evolutionary thought, and sited by daniel pinchbeck

Professor Huston Smith, (from his 2004 Foreword to Pain, Sex and Time):

"Overnight, the book in hand converted me from the scientific worldview to the vaster world of the mystics. I applaud the decision to bring this book back into print."

In this absorbing and provocative book, Gerald Heard shows that a fissure in human consciousness, which has been rapidly widening for 400 years, is the cause of modern man's tragic dismay. Believing his problem external, when it is really in his own mind, man at last faces a "veritable Copernican revolution" psychologically. Science tells us that man is the only animal capable of continued evolution. It shows further that he can evolve in only one way-mentally. Pain, Sex and Time is then a new outlook, a new promise for the future, a new exploration of those strange and little-known powers of human consciousness of which man is becoming increasingly aware. Harper & Brothers, 1939

Pain, Sex and Time was James Dean's favorite book.

Pain, Sex and Time has been out of print for 60 years.

A Quote by Michael E. Gerber on greatness, create, author, passive, and living life to the fullest

The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing.

Michael E. Gerber
