enlightnement

A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, evil, delusion, spirituality, enlightnement, freedom, liberation, christianity, and truth

"The prince of this world blinds people who then walk like blind men, feeling their way and because of this they are constantly falling into one bog after another.  Science is fraud when its facts are taken as something absolute, for tomorrow's scientific knowledge will contradict today's; most art is a deliberate distortion; politics has always been full of deceit, lies, crimes.  Here everything must be understood in reverse---what they call life is but superficial, horrible pettiness, emptiness, lies with out end; in a word, it is the 'age of falsehood,' the kingdom of the prince of this world."

A Quote by Walker Percy on search, seeking, enlightnement, awakening, and despair

The search is what everyone would undertake if he were not stuck in the everydayness of his own life. To be aware of the possibilities of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.

Walker Percy
