A Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb on knowledge and skepticism

It’s not a good idea to take a forecast from someone wearing a tie. If possible, tease people who take themselves and their knowledge too seriously.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on true, realization, knowledge, mind, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

True realization brings you to the point where you see that you don't know a thing. That you literally cannot know anything, because all knowledge is from the mind and is therefore garbage.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on truth, illumination, successive development, life, knowledge, and awareness

There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

Truth stands on its own two strong legs, and requires no proof.

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on expressions of love, love the unlovable, knowledge, i am, and out of touch with reality

    To love something in this world as True perception would, we have to love everything alike, meaning we grant every thing an equal right to be. Then we may have our preferences, but still evaluate all as expressions of love. This may very well be a stumbling block for many. For how can we love the unlovable? Be learning to see past the form aspect and see the form content. This learning to see the form aspect is really not a learning process. We use the word 'learning' throughout this material for convenience of expression. It is rather a remembering of one's knowledge. Rephrasing the above statement we say: by remembering our identity, we look past the form aspect as naturally as breathing. The instant we know who we really are, the unlovable are recognized as the same I AM as ours.
    To despise my left hand for being soiled would seem, at best, extremely unreasonable. Insisting on rejecting it, the day might come where I do not recognize it as my own hand. Each time now it wishes to be recognized and accepted, I either slap it or run away from it. An onlooker would, most likely, esteem me a trifle out of touch with reality. Yet this is exactly the case with our response to our brothers and sisters. However much we fear or despise, therefore flee or fight, we cannot get away from them. My brother and my sister are my left and right hand. They are my eyes - they are my heart - they are ME. To 'get rid' of them, the unlovable, I have to 'get rid' of ME, and to do that I have to tear my heart out. And this is precisely what we, as humanity, did. We tore our heart out - meaning we tore love out. Now we have non to give. So to love the unlovable is not to face him and think: 'Wow, how can I love this despicable so and so?' This leads only deeper into the mire of separation. To love these is to love ME! By discovering my BEING I discover theirs and MINE.
