A Quote by Robert Grudin on experience, time, night, evening, awareness, duality, temporalilty, and travel

In a railroad car at nightfall, when the natural light outside has diminished until it is even with the artificial light inside, the passenger facing forward sees in his window two images at once: the dim landscape rushing toward him out of a pit of darkness, and the interior of the car, reflected with its more or less motionless occupants. At this hour most passengers unconsciously give allegiance to one of these two polarities of vision; and the individual momentarily aware of both may be struck by the profound, almost tragic duality between outer and inner worlds, between the rush of experience and the immobility of awareness.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on optimism, pessimism, duality, and reality

To think in terms of either pessimism or optimism oversimplifies the truth. The problem is to see reality as it is.

A Quote by Margaret Fuller on men, women, gender, duality, and fluidity

Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism.  But in fact they are perpetually passing into one another.  Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid.  There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman.

Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850)

A Quote by Elysha on divine, manifestation, creation, purity, one, duality, no self, self realisation, and enlightenment

There is nothing wrong with anything in manifestation; all manifestation is a movement of the divine one gearing up for the very purposes of this divine one entering its own creation with the fullness and purity of itself.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on duality, momentary, nothing, divine, self, self realisation, beyond self, no self, true nature, mind, and me myself i

Duality:
We are always talking about two 'things', until there is only silence on a momentary basis. These two things are:-

a. The 'no-thing' which is our true nature or the Divine.

b. The 'some-thing' which is not.

The nothing we will call our true nature, because that is exactly what it is.

The something or mindbody package will be referred to as the Self. (This includes the conscious-self, unconscious-self, ego-self, feeling-self, true-self, knowing -self and all the rest of the ideas of the chattering mind.)

The self is also the entire package of the person which we know as me/myself/I.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on science, duality, existence, dualism, and dna

Science has its own versions of the fundamental duality at the heart of existence. The particle-wave duality, in which atomic components are simultaneously particles and waves, is a primary example. Not surprisingly, DNA has also been shown to possess a version of the particle-wave binarism.

A Quote by John Snelling on ego, suffering, duality, non duality, delusion, mind, i, and self

A primary cause of suffering is delusion: our inability, because of a subtly willful blindness, to see things the way they truly are but instead in a distorted way. The world is in fact a seamless and dynamic unity: a single living organism that is constantly undergoing change. our minds, however, chop it up into separate, static bits and pieces, which we then try mentally and physically to manipulate. One of the mind's most dear creations is the idea of the person and, closest to home, of a very special person which each one of us calls "I": a separate, enduring ego or self. In a moment, then, the seamless universe is cut in two. There is "I" -- and there is all the rest. That means conflict -- and pain, for "I" cannot control that fathomless vastness against which it is set. It will try, of course, as a flea might pit itself against an elephant, but it is a vain enterprise.

A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by Earon on spirituality, divinity, wisdom, god, primates, knowledge, self-knowledge, duality, life, compassion, and unity

At the root of human wisdom is an understanding that we are, at once, both gods and primates.
