A Quote by Osho on beauty, change, mind, fantasy, reality, and meditation

This is the way of meditation: encountering the present in all its tremendous beauty, just being in the present. Inside, the mind stops. Outside, the world changes totally. It is no more the ordinary world you have known before. In fact, you have not known it at all. Your mind was distorting everything, your mind was creating fantasies. Your eyes were full of fantasies and you were looking though those fantasies. They never allowed you to see that which is. If the mind is gone, even for a moment, suddenly the whole existence explodes upon you.

A Quote by Evan Harris Walker on fantasy, reality, illusion, myth, dreaming, and world

It is easy to imagine fantasy as physical and myth as real. We do it almost every moment. We do this as we dream, as we think, and as we cope with the world about us. But these worlds of fantasy that we form into the solid things around us are the source of our discontent. They inspire our search to find ourselves.

Perhaps the highest human potential is only realized when we no longer require the world to conform to our fantasies of how it should be.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on job, employment, instinct, corporate, slavery, nausea, shopping, life, life is short, society, imagination, imaginal, fantasy, money, luke soloman, vagabond, homeless, comedy, and humor

My first instinct was to get a job—an idea immediately followed by a crippling wave of nausea. I literally vomited in a trashcan on the sidewalk where I’d been pleasantly window-shopping. I found the idea of a job repulsive. Life was too short to waste being a productive member of society. My job was my imaginary life, and I felt deeply I should be paid to live it.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, sol luckman, luke soloman, fiction, nonfiction, author, character, personage, disclaimer, reality, fantasy, truth, imagination, writing, and novel

DISCLAIMER: This is a work of fiction insofar as we are all, each and every one of us, including yours truly, and including you (perhaps most of all), works of fiction. Beyond that, it is pure and absolute nonfiction; and though its “author” technically never existed, at least not in the dense, empirical, flesh-and-blood sense, the personages and events herein depicted are drawn straight from life, as it were. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual places, living or dead, while purely coincidental from the point of view of intention, should surprise no one.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on narcissism, fantasy, and ungrounded

When we are narcissistic, we are not on solid ground (earth) or thinking clearly (air) or cought up in passion (fire).  Somehow if we follow the myth, we are dreamlike, fluid, not clearly formed, more immersed in a stream of fantasy than secure in a firm identity.

Thomas Moore (1779 - 1852)

A Quote by Sir Walter Scott on body, death, desires, fantasy, gifts, god, heart, heaven, love, mind, secrets, soul, sympathy, and wishes

True love 's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven: It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes soon as granted fly; It liveth not in fierce desire, With dead desire it doth not die; It is the secret sympathy, The silver link, the silken tie, Which heart to heart and mind to mind In body and in soul can bind.

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832)
