A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on flow, consciousness, mastery, and psychic energy

To know oneself is the first step toward making flow a part of one's entire life. But just as there is no free lunch in the material economy, nothing comes free in the psychic one. If one is not willing to invest psychic energy in the internal reality of consciousness, and instead squanders it in chasing external rewards, one loses mastery of one's life, and ends up becoming a puppet of circumstances.

A Quote by Alan Clements on life, consciousness, revolution, dharma, and freedom

The Dharma life is a daily reawakening to explore and map the Mystery. Turning our lives into an epic adventure, we blaze our own trails, even if it means defying social mores or breaking taboos that attempt to suppress and control our impulses. This revolution will not be won or lost in a meditation retreat, a city street, a living room, or a monastery alone. It will happen on the front lines of the human heart - that stormy region where good and evil, genius and madness, peace and war, battle for dominion over conscience, freedom, and love. When compromise, doubt, or hesitation no longer hold appeal, it is my belief that you will inevitably encounter a glimpse of the holy unexpected. You will begin listening to your instinct for freedom - what you really love - and leave the rest behind.

A Quote by George Leonard on mastery, 5 keys to mastery, practice, and consciousness

Now here is a key: you want to make it real and present in the realm of your consciousness. You don't say “I'm going to do such and such” - it already has happened. Now, is consciousness real? It exists and it is very powerful. The idea is to have this mesh between your consciousness - your visualization - and the so-called material world.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on eckhart tolle, power of now, mind, time, and consciousness

Why does the mind habitually deny or resist the Now? Because it cannot function and remain in control without time, which is past and future, so it perceives the timeless Now as threatening. Time and mind are in fact inseparable.

A Quote by Dr. Deepak Chopra on nondual and consciousness

The mind is creeping closer and closer to the soul, which sits on the edge of God's world, at the event horizon.  The gap of separation is wide when there is no perception of spirit; it grows smaller as the mind figures out what is happening.  Eventually the two will get so close that mind and soul have no choice but to merge.  When that happens, the resemblance to a black hole is striking.  To the mind, it will be as if falling into God's world lasts forever, an eternity in bliss consciousness.  From God's side, the merging takes place in a split second; indeed, if we stand completely in God's world, where time has no meaning, the whole process never even occurred.  The mind was part of the sould all along, only withought knowing it.

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

Being is the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.  However, Being is not only beyond but also deep within every form as its innermost invisible and indestructible essence.  This means that is is accessible to you now as your own deepest self, your true nature.  But don't seek to grasp it with your mind.  Don't try to understand it.  You can know it only when the mind is still.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on frequency and consciousness

In this state of inner connectedness, you are much more alert, more awake than in the mind-identified state.  You are fully present.  It also raises the vibrational frequency of the energy field that give life to the physical body.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on witness, enlightenment, and consciousness

The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated.  You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence.  You also realize that all the things that truly matter -- beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace -- arise from beyond the mond.  You begin to awaken.
