consciousness

A Quote by John Welwood on love, awakening, relationship, soul, consciousness, expansion, being, shadow, ego, and false self

Like the sun's rays that cause the seed to stir within its husk, love's radiant energy penetrates the facade of the false self, calling forth resources hidden deep within us.  Its warmth wakes up the life inside us, making us want to uncurl, to give birth, to grow and reach for the light.  It calls on us to break out of our shell, the personality-husk surrounding the seed potential of all that we could be.  The purpose of a seed husk is to protect the tender life within until the time and conditions are right for it to burst forth.  Our personality structure serves a similar function.  It provides a semblance of security, as a kind of compensation for the loss of our larger being.  But when love's warming rays start to wake us up, our ego-shell becomes a barrier restricting our expansion.  As the germ of life swells within us, we feel our imprisonment more acutely.....The brighter love's radiance, the darker the shadows we encounter; the more we feel life stirring within us, the more we also feel our dead spots; the more conscious we become, the more clearly we see where we remain unconscious.  None of this need dishearten us.  For in facing our darkness, we bring to light forgotten parts of our being.  In recognizing exactly where we have been unconscious, we become more conscious.  And in seeing and feeling the ways we've gone dead, we start to revive and kindle our desire to live more expansively.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on energy, bioenergy, torsion energy, consciousness, human biology, quantum biology, bioholography, era i medicine, larry dossey, awareness, human potential, intelligent design, electromagnetism, Genetics, biochemistry, new science

The notion that everything is energy or consciousness directly applies to human biology. The materialistic, “Era I” view of the body as a machine that may run on energy but is somehow distinguishable from it is fast giving way to undeniable evidence that we, too, at our most fundamental level, are manifestations of conscious energy. The holographic model ... views the ostensibly physical universe in terms of intersecting electromagnetic frequencies that, in effect, project the staggering illusions we think of as the world … and ourselves.

A Quote by Vladimir Nabokov on consciousness, knowledge, and truth

It is certainly not then--not in dreams-- but when one is wide awake, at moments of robust joy and achievement, on the highest terrace of consciousness, that mortality has a chance to peer beyond its own limits, from the mast, from the past and its castle tower. And although nothing much can be seen through the mist, there is somehow the blissful feeling that one is looking in the right direction.

Vladimir Nabokov (1899 - 1977)

A Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten on life, consciousness, and river of life

Life is our teacher. Life communicates with us all the time and it is a lesson to see how life continuously have led me to the people I need to met, to the situations I need to experience, and to the places I need to be. There has never been any real reason to worry since all small individual rivers are already on their way to the ocean, to the Whole. It is not about swimming, it is about relaxing and to float with the river in a basic trust that life already leads towards the sea of consciousness, towards the Whole.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on hesse, reading, writing, books, consciousness, and history

"For even the most childish intoxication with progress will soon be forced to recognize that writing and books have a function that is eternal. It will become evident that formulations in words and the handling on of these formulations through writing are not only important aids but actually the only means by which humanity can have a history and continuing consciousness of itself." (Hesse in Reading in Bed, ed. by Steven Gilbar, 1974)
