identity

A Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche on self, knowledge, contradiction, belief, and identity

We are fragmented into so many different aspects. We don't know who we really are, or what aspects of ourselves we should identify with or believe in. So many contradictory voices, dictates, and feelings fight for control over our inner lives that we find ourselves scattered everywhere, in all directions, leaving nobody at home.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on mind, ego, time, identity, self, and enlightenment

To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation.

A Quote by Elia Wise on black hole, space, dimesion, so-ordinate, identity, earth, human, dead, focus, consciuosness, space-time continuum, airplane, seat, flight, manifestation, scientist, perception, horrizon, and gap

A black Hole in your dimensional space is another reality system whose co-ordiantes interface with those of the Earth. It is a locus of being for a collective identity, just as Earth is a locus of being for a collective Human identity. The collective or star referred to as Black Hole is neither dead nor gone. Its focus of consciousness is just temporarily redirected into other dimensional co-ordinates that preclude its appearance in your space/time continuum. The field your scientists interpret to be unoccupiable and inescapable is actually holding the star's place in space, the way you might put a "Reserved" sign on your airplane seat if you wanted to get off for a walk between legs of a flight. Because the collective identity of the star has taken a walk somewhere your consciousness cannot currently reach, instead of percieving its manifestation, you percieve it as a gap in your space/time continuum. Your scientists think of it as being sealed off behind its own event horizon. In fact it is Human perception that is sealed off behind their current consciousness horizon.

When they say "Be yourself," which self do they mean?

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on self, identity, determination, questions, and who am i

'And how, who am I?  I will remember, if I can!  I'm determined to do it!'  But being determined didn't help much...

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on dreams, identity, reality, and existence

'He's dreaming now,' said Tweedledee:  'and what do you think he's dreaming about?'
Alice said 'Nobody can guess that.'
'Why, about you!' Tweedledee exclaimed, clapping his hands triumphantly.  'And if he left off dreaming about you, where do you suppose you'd be?'
'Where I am now, of course,' said Alice.
'Not you!' Tweedledee retorted contemptuously.  'You'd be nowhere.  Why, you're only a sort of thing in his dream!'
'If that there King was to wake,' added Tweedledum, 'you'd go out - bang! - just like a candle!'
'I shouldn't!' Alice exclaimed indignantly.  'Besides, if I'm only a sort of thing in his dream, what are you, I should like to know?'
'Ditto' said Tweedledum.
'Ditto, ditto' cried Tweedledee.
He shouted this so loud that Alice couldn't help saying, 'Hush!  You'll be waking him, I'm afraid, if you make so much noise.'
'Well, it no use your talking about waking him,' said Tweedledum, 'when you're only one of the things in his dream.  You know very well you're not real.'
'I am real!' said Alice and began to cry.
'You won't make yourself a bit realler by crying,' Tweedledee remarked:  'there's nothing to cry about.'
'If I wasn't real,' Alice said - half-laughing though her tears, it all seemed so ridiculous - 'I shouldn't be able to cry.'
'I hope you don't suppose those are real tears?'

Speak in French when you can't think of the English for a thing - turn out your toes as you walk - and remember who you are!

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on imagination, appearances, verbosity, identity, self-knowledge, and seeming

Be what you would seem to be - or if you'd like it put more simply - Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on self, identity, role playing, and pretense

It's no use now to pretend to be two people!  Why, there's hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on questions, wonder, change, mystery, self-perception, and identity

Dear, dear!  How queer everything is to-day!  And yesterday things went on just as usual.  I wonder if I've been changed in the night?  Let me think:  was I the same when I got up this morning?  I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.  But if I'm not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I?  Ah, that's the great puzzle!
