A Quote by Elie Wiesel on reading, explore, mind, and study

You take a text, you explore it, you enter it with all your heart and all your mind.

Elie Wiesel (1928 -)

A Quote by Sol Luckman on awareness, perception, mind, consciousness, paradigm shift, reality, imagination, and existentialism

I felt exceedingly small, but also exceedingly large, and the things that had once seemed so important now appeared trifling. Actually, those things had never even existed. I’d imagined every last one of them. Nothing ever really existed. Somehow, just then, navigating that cosmic ocean of sky, this was everything I needed to know.

Though face and form alter with the years,
I hold fast to the pearl of my mind.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on god, love, realized, self-realized, unitive, self, no self, beyond self, mind, knowing god, know god, christian, christianity, christ, and religion

 

Only God is love, and for this love to be fully realized self must step aside. And not only do we not need a self to love God, but for the same reason we do not need a mind to know him, for that in us which knows God, is God.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on higher self, lower self, ego, goal, realization, realized, self-realized, unitive, god, eternity, doubt, truth, no self, beyond self, mind, christian, christianity, christ, and religion

 

Whoever was responsible for the idea of dividing self into lower and higher parts committed a serious crime against humanity. This division has given rise to the notion that the lower (ego and immature) self must be overcome while the higher (unitive and whole) self must be sought as the goal of human realization. Out of ignorance, I too clung to this notion because I believed it was this higher self that would be united with God for all eternity. It took a long time before my experiences led me to doubt this conviction and, at the same time, let in the possibility that this was not the whole truth and that there was still further to go.

A Quote by Suzanne Segal on mind, self-reflective, introspective, emptiness, illusion, within, awareness, consciousness, collision with the infinite, beyond self, no self, self realization, julie sarah powell, and bernadette roberts

 

There was a part of the mind - perhaps what we call the self-reflective or introspective function - that kept turning to look and, finding emptiness, kept sending the message that something was wrong. It was a reflex that had developed during the years of living in the illusion of individuality, a reflex we commonly consider necessary to our selves. We "look within" repeatedly to determine what we think and feels, to make a study of ourselves and track our states of mind and heart. Now that there was no longer an "in" to look "into", the self-reflective reflex was adrift, but persisted. It kept turning in and turning in, unable to come to terms with the fact that there was no in anymore, only emptiness.

A Quote by Dee Hock on organization, mind, and purpose

I spent months and months asking myself, "What is an organization?" If I'm talking about institutional and organizational change, what am I really talking about? What is an organization in the deepest sense? It surely isn't just a set of bylaws, because I can write a set of bylaws and shove it in a desk drawer, and it just becomes an old moldering piece of paper. And if you really think deeply about it, you discover that every organization and every institution, without exception, has no reality save in your mind. It's not its buildings. Those are manifestations of it. It's not its name, it's not its logo, and it's not some fictional piece of paper called a stock certificate. It's not money. It is a mental concept around which people and resources gather in pursuit of common purpose.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on oneness, life, no self, mind, simple, down to earth, self realisation, true nature, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

Seeing the oneness of life, and experiencing this with no Self in the way to distort it, is so very different to how the mind tries to project it. The mind literally has no idea how it truly is from an experiential perspective. Itis always so much more simple and down-to-earth than the mind could ever imagine or comprehend.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on gratitude, moment, veil of the mind, no knower, no one, mind, new dimension, no self, self realisation, enlightenment, true nature, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

It is as if every cell of the body is in complete harmony and each cell seems to be emanating gratitude, although it is just the naturally functioning senses and nothing more.

This is very difficult to describe to others because the mind immediately turns it into something else. It simply means seeing, feeling, tasting, touching, hearing everything as it is in this moment without the veil of the mind creating something over the top. Simple. This is all that is left when the mindbody package is gone.

There are no internal arisings, no knower, no being, and no experience, no-one left. The mind without a feeling centre is left powerless so remains quiet although still there, separate and unable to touch this. A whole new dimension, although everything appears the same.

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.
