A Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb on religion, faith, and belief

Scientists don’t know what they are talking about when they talk about religion. Religion has nothing to do with belief, and I don’t believe it has any negative impact on people’s lives outside of intolerance. Why do I go to church? It’s like asking, why did you marry that woman? You make up reasons, but it’s probably just smell. I love the smell of candles. It’s an aesthetic thing.

A Quote by Suzanne Segal on spiritual practice, belief, enlightenment, true nature, fear, awareness, consciousness, collision with the infinite, beyond self, no self, self realization, julie sarah powell, and bernadette roberts

 

Behind most spiritual practices is the belief that you have to get someplace you're not- a destination called realization or enlightenment. But realization isn't someplace else; it's the naturally occurring human state. It doesn't belong to anybody. It's who we all are. Spiritual practices also set up many pictures of what this state looks like. For example, when I described how much fear was present, people told me the fear meant that something must be wrong, because fear was an indication that I wasn't in the proper state. But fear is just what it is, and it's there too in the vastness of who we are.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on worth, self worth, belief, self, and soul

In fact every belief is an obstacle.  It does not  even require your realization, since you are already who you are.  But without realization, who you are does not shine forth into this world.  It remains in the unmanifested which is, of course, your true home.  You are then like an apparently poor person who does not know he has a bank account with $100 million in it and so his wealth remains an unexpressed potential.

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on truth, dream, reality, polarities, choose, ego, a rock and a hard place, avoid seeking god, illusion, and belief

    "What are we to learn by contrast? The answer to this is; to learn what to avoid and what to seek. That part of our SELF which is deluded, the separate Self, knows this only too well. So, in line with every other truth, it was turned into a farce. The seeking now becomes not one between dream and reality but one between polarities themselves, whcih are but part of the dream. Thus the choice, the freedom of choice the Ego offers, is the choice between a dream and a dream. A rock and a hard place.
    So, now the picture looks like this: we religiously avoid the Bad and seek the Good or avoid what is Good and seek the Bad as we 'avoid' and 'seek'! It does not really matter which way the pendulum swings, as long as it rmains within 'opposing forces', within polarities; this way escape is made impossible, illusion reassured. As long as we are guided by false perception, we see the cintrast as the contrast between polarities themselves and believe we must choose between poalarites.

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on worship, intent, contradiction, and belief

"Whatever we fight, we shall strengthen, for the mere fact of fighting it is witness to our belief in it......Belief is but worship by degree. To fight what we worship is a contradiction in itself. Resistance of any kind  achieves the opposite of its intent."
