consciousness

A Quote by William James on circle, consciousness, people, and possibility

Most people live... in a very restricted circle of their potential being.  They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness... much like a man who, out of his whole bodily
organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger.

William James (1842 - 1910)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on problem, solve, and consciousness

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on life, being, and consciousness

Their function is to anchor the frequency of the new consciousness on this planet. I call them the frequency-holders. They are here to generate consciousness through the activities of daily life, through their interactions with others as well as through "just being."

Eckhart Tolle

A Quote by John Kehoe on thoughts, money, and consciousness

We might be far more willing to learn how to use our mental mechanisms if we imagined for a moment that for every thought we either gained a dollar or lost a dollar, depending on the type of thought. Considering we think thousands of thoughts every day, this is quite a proposition. Imagine an accounting system noting our every thought and recording which ones gained us money and which ones lost us money. How diligent we would be in controlling and directing our thoughts! How enthusiastically we would create those thoughts which made us money, and how carefully we would avoid those which cost us money.

A Quote by Sri Daya Mata on meditation, intuition, soul, god, divine mother, and consciousness

For a short while the immortal ray of light that is our soul wears a perishable mortal garment...but for all eternity the soul is sustained by the Infinite Source of that light.  The more we meditate, the more we feel that consciousness.  And the less we meditate, the less able we are to transcend identification with the little self -- so many pounds of flesh encasing a limited mind bound by sense perceptions to the troublesome environs of the world.  We have to get to the Self beyond its physical and mental instrumentalities to realize we are not fragile mortal beings; there is an unbroken link between ourselves and the Beloved Mother of the Universe, the Divine Consciousness flowing through and permeating Infinity.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on intuition, healing, service, compassion, power, and consciousness

There is no such thing as a simple act of compassion or an inconsequential act of service.  Everything we do for another person has infinite consequences.

A Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck on consciousness, evolution, chaos, hope, and awareness

What if the evolution of consciousness, rather than an adaptive quirk of the brain, was actually the central drama, purpose and point, of our whole show? There are, we shall see, philosophers and psychoanalysts, mystics and physicists who propose that this is the case. Inner development is an eccentric process, advancing in certain jumps, in revelatory sparks and fizzles--each person is his or her own private universe. Strengthened by suffering and crisis, consciousness does does not reach a new intensity according to any predictably linear progress that can be graphed by the tools of modern science. It follows its own wayward path.

What if this deepening of awareness takes place in the margins, in the nooks and crannies of contemporary life, like a weed flowing out of the thinnest sidewalk crack? Could it be, as the somnolent masses and the professional classes press forward in the old direction, seeking the same old rewards, that the new thing self-organizes out of chaos and noise, asserts itself in fragility and silence, then takes root and vitalizes until it suddenly manifests as established truth? If something like this was the case, we would be surprised at first-- even shocked--but then it might occur to us: Perhaps it has always happened this way.

A Quote by Joseph Campbell on bliss, sanskrit, transcendence, rapture, sat-chit-ananda, and consciousness

Now, I came to this idea of bliss because in Sanskrit, which is the great spiritual language of the world, there are three terms that represent the brink, the jumping-off place to the ocean of transcendence: sat-chit-ananda. The word "Sat" means being. "Chit" means consciousness. "Ananda" means bliss or rapture. I thought, "I don't know whether my consciousness is proper consciousness or not; I don't know whether what I know of my being is my proper being or not; but I do know where my rapture is. So let me hang on to rapture, and that will bring me both my consciousness and my being." I think it worked.

A Quote by Elizabeth Clare Prophet on consciousness, enlightenment, freedom, inspiration, meditation, philosophy, psychology, tao, zen, ascension, divine, self, real, belief, god, life, truth, understanding, solution, soul, spirit, hope, and good

I find that God by any name can be reduced to this sense of the eternal Presence. It defines being, and I see it as a sphere of intense light that marks the point of my origin. It is the permanent part of me, of which I am very aware, and the point to which I will return at the conclusion of this life.
