A Quote by Ramtha Knight on new age, enlightenment, satus quo, create reality, altered ego, personality, ramtha, braun, consciousness, knowledge, and susmita barua quotes

You are here to create reality, not to continue status quo. You are here to grow in knowledge, philosophy, and then in truth.  You are here to live, and not be afraid of life. You are here to use your brain to create thoughts and to conquer your ignorance.

What happens when a person becomes enlightened? They conquer their ignorance. What does that mean?

That means they develop their Spirit rather than their altered ego, their personality, their body. And they work everyday in embodiment of that (spirit) energy. They don’t ever really grow old. They have dynamic energy.

They can create and their level of acceptance is extraordinary.

New age is not new age; it is forever age. What it means is being greater than your body, greater than your prejudice and greater than your lack.” – Ramtha

A Quote by Dogen Zenji on dogen, zen, buddhism, moon, false stability, enlightenment, and spirituality

Through one word, or seven words, or three times five, even if you investigate thoroughly myriad forms, nothing can be depended upon. Night advances, the moon glows and falls into the ocean. The black dragon jewel you have been searching for, is everywhere.

A Quote by Dogen Zenji on dogen, zen, buddhism, moon, water, reflection, dewdrop, enlightenment, and spirituality

Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water. The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken. Although its light is wide and great, the moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide. The whole moon and the entire sky are reflected in dewdrops on the grass, or even in one drop of water. Enlightenment does not divide you, just as the moon does not break the water. You cannot hinder enlightenment, just as a drop of water does not hinder the moon in the sky. The depth of the drop is the height of the moon. Each reflection, however long or short its duration, manifests the vastness of the dewdrop, and realizes the limitlessness of the moonlight in the sky.

Renunciation is not getting rid of the things of this world, but accepting that they pass away.

A Quote by Immanuel Kant on enlightenment, courage, self, self-awareness, and self-esteem

Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know!

Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804)

A Quote by Coleman Barks on friend, friendship, enlightenment, kismet, compassion, grace, rumi, and freedom

One of the startling prospects that Rumi and Shams bring to the world of mystical awareness, which turns out to be ordinary consciousness as well, is the suggestion that we "fall in love in such a way that it frees us from any connecting." what that means is that we become friendship. "When living itself becomes the Friend, lovers disappear." That is, a human being can become a field of love (compassion, generosity, playfulness), rather than being identified with any particular synapse of lover and beloved. The love-ache widens to a plain of longing at the core of everything: the absence-presence center of awareness. Rumi went in search of the missing Shams. The story is that he was on a street in Damascus when the realization came that he *was* their Friendship. No separation, no union, just he was that at the silent core. I'd have to say that's the *baraka* (a blessing, the particular grace of taking in presence), the mystery of the ecstatic life.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on dna activation, dna, Genetics, wave-genetics, electrogenetics, regenetics method, sol luckman, conscious healing, human potential, enlightenment, consciousness, healing, sound healing, intention, source, torsion energy, uncondit

What if, by introducing healing sounds and intentions to the genome, sounds and intentions that derive from the same unified torsion energy of Source that I will argue ... is unconditional love, it is possible to key transposons in potential DNA to rearrange themselves and play the energy body in a higher octave, one more in tune with the unlimited creative consciousness of nonlocalized mind? What if we can thus raise the harmonics of our system of electromagnetic fields and fully align ourselves with our Higher Selves? What if by raising our vibratory frequency from within, we can repattern our electromagnetic blueprint and seal the Fragmentary Body, allowing us to transcend limiting dualistic patterns and elements related to these patterns—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual?

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on passion, growth, wisdom, transformation, enlightenment, and bly

Tell a wise person, or else keep silent, / because the mass man will mock it right away. / I praise what is truly alive, / what longs to be burned to death. / [] In the calm water of the love-nights, / where you were begotten, where you have begotten, / a strange feeling comes over you, / when you see the silent candle burning. / [] Now you are no longer caught in the obsession with darkness, / and a desire for higher love-making sweeps you upward. / [] Distance does not make you falter. / Now, arriving in magic, flying, / and finally, insane for the light, / you are the butterfly and you are gone. / And so long as you haven't experienced this: to die and so to grow, / you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
