Gods

A Quote by David Abram on earth, intelligence, language, place, gods, ecology, magic, and space

The singular magic of a place is evident from what happens there, from what befalls oneself or others when in its vicinity. The songs proper to a specific site will share a common style, a rhythm that matches the pulse of the place, attuned to the way things happen there – to the sharpness of the shadows or the rippling speech of water bubbling up from the ground. In traditional Ireland, a country person might journey to one distant spring in order to cure her insomnia, to another for strengthening her ailing eyesight, and to yet another to receive insight and protection from thieves. For each spring has its own powers, its own blessings, and its own curses. Different gods dwell in different places, and different demons. Each place has its own dynamism, its own patterns of movement, and these patterns engage the senses and relate them in particular ways, instilling particular moods and modes of awareness, so that unlettered, oral people will rightly say that each place has its own mind, its own personality, its own intelligence.

A Quote by Evan Harris Walker on science, religion, myth, gods, and materialism

Science has rolled its war wagons over the crushed myths of so many religious beliefs. It has marshaled its mechanics to explain the motions of the sun, moon, and stars. It has mapped the heavens, leaving no place for gods to live.

A Quote by Evan Harris Walker on reality, science, religion, gods, meaning, purpose, and life

Somewhere in our search for reality we have passed something by, something important that we no longer find amid the bits and pieces of disassembled matter--something vital that we cannot build out of these parts. There is surely something else, some piece of divinity in us, something that was before the elements, and that owes no homage to the sun.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on fears, insecurity, unwillingness, wonderful, gods, game, life, chance, and living

He seemed to be talking about my fears, my insecurity, and my unwillingness to see what was wonderful because tomorrow it might disappear and I might suffer. The gods throw the dice, and they don't ask whether we want to be in the game or not.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on spiritual, true, mind, prison of the mind, self, third eye, angles, gods, special, enlightenment, true nature, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

You don't need to drift around in the 'oh so spiritual' clothes, don't need to use all of the 'oh so spiritual' Indian words, don't need to pretend to be 'oh so spiritual' because it is all a total crock. All just a red herring which is simply a trick of the Self that is distracting you from being true.


None of that has anything whatsoever to do with being true. It is all just talk and pretence only, and talk never truly saved anyone. Talk just brings more talk and never moves from the prison of the mind.


So there won't be any flashes of light shooting out of your third eye, no special energy pumping through the body and definitely no visits from the angels and gods to invite you into the special throne room which has been created just for you.


Sorry to fizzle out your mindful projections of what will occur when this 'spiritual enlightenment' descends on you.
Sorry to interrupt your version of the words of wisdom, which have been twisted into unrecognizable creations.
Sorry to cut short the claptrap.


Oh, okay not sorry.


It is all rubbish. You already are.

A Quote by R.T. Rundle Clark, on horus, falcon, gods, ancient, set, osiris, and red cloak

I am Horus, the great Falcon upon the ramparts of the house of him of the hidden name. My flight has reached the horizon. I have passed by the gods of Nut. I have gone further than the gods of old. Even the most ancient bird could not equal my very first flight. I have removed my place beyond the powers of Set, the foe of my father Osiris. No other god could do what I have done. I have brought the ways of eternity to the twilight of the morning. I am unique in my flight. My wrath will be turned against the enemy of my father Osiris and I will put him beneath my feet in my name of 'Red Cloak'.
