A Quote by zaadzster_1 on light, dark, and mystery

Where there is no light, one cannot see; and when one cannot see, his imagination starts to run wild.  He begins to suspect that something is about to happen.  In the dark there is mystery.

We had two bags of CDs, seventy-five tracks of Santana, five sheets of high-powered music lyrics, an ipod half-full of the Doobies, and a whole multi colored collection of uppers, downers, laughers, screamers… Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw Eagles, and two dozen Amy Lee. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get into a serious music collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the Eagles. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an Eagles binge, and I knew we’d get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.
~ Margi Cates

A Quote by Oriah Mountain Dreamer on love, intention, dance, relationship, strength, adversity, risk, fragile, beauty, heroism, and mystery

The Dance

I have sent you my invitation, the note inscribed on the palm of my hand by the fire of living.

Don't jump up and shout, "Yes, this is what I want! Let's do it!"

Just stand up quietly and dance with me.

Show me how you follow your deepest desires, spiraling down into the ache within the ache, and I will show you how I reach inward and open outward to feel the kiss of the Mystery, sweet lips on my own, every day.

Don't tell me you want to hold the whole world in your heart.

Show me how you turn away from making another wrong without abandoning yourself when you are hurt and afraid of being unloved.

Tell me a story of who you are, and see who I am in the stories I am living.

And together we will remember that each of us always has a choice.

Don't tell me how wonderful things will be...someday.

Show me you can risk being completely at peace, truly okay with the way things are right now in this moment, and again in the next and the next and the next...

I have heard enough warrior stories of heroic daring.

Tell me how you crumble when you hit the wall, the place you cannot go beyond by the strength of your own will.

What carries you to the other side of that wall, to the fragile beauty of your own humanness?

And after we have shown each other how we have set and kept the learn, healthy boundaries that help us live side by side with each other, let us risk remembering that we never stop silently loving those we once loved out loud.

Take me to the places on the earth that teach you how to dance, the places where you can risk letting the world break your heart, and I will take you to the places where the earth beneath my feet and the stars overhead make my heart whole again and again.

Show me how you take care of business without letting business determine who you are.

When the children are fed but still the voices within and around us shout that soul's desires have too high a price, let us remind each other that it is never about the money.

Show me how you offer to your people and the world the stories and the songs you want our children's children to remember, and I will show you how I struggle, not to change the world, but to love it.

Sit beside me in long moments of shared solitude, knowing both our absolute aloneness and our undeniable belonging.

Dance with me in the silence and in the sound of small daily words, holding neither against me at the end of the day.

And when the sound of all the declarations of our sincerest intentions have died away on the wind, dance with me in the infinite pause before the next great inhale of the breath that is breathing us all into being, not filling the emptiness from the outside or from within.

Don't say, "Yes!"

Just take my hand and dance with me.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on transpersonal, death, existentialism, centaur, void, and mystery

The consolations are gone; the skull will grin in at the banquet; it can no longer tranquilize itself with the trivial. From the depths, it cries out to gods no longer there, searches for a meaning not yet disclosed, still to be incarnated. Its very agony is worth a million happy magics and a thousand believing myths, and yet its only consolation is its unrelenting pain - a pain, a dread, an emptiness that feels beyond the comforts and distractions of the body, the persona, the ego, looks bravely into the face of the Void, and can no longer explain away either the Mystery or the Terror. It is a soul that is much too awake. It is a soul on the brink of the transpersonal.

Ken Wilber

Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on life, mystery, people, stars, and universe

Everything is determined by forces over which we have no control.  It is determined for the insect as well as for the star.  Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust - we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Sheradon Bryce on mans mind, gods mind, follow joy, truth, joy, mystery, school, life, living in body, one with body, denial, resistance, and flesh

You did not come here to conquer flesh. You came here to live in it. You came here to be part of it, not to destroy it, not to repress it and not to conquer it. If you are not one with your body you will be owned. If you go into social consciousness from an image standpoint you are owned also. ...If you cannot see the world and hear the world then you can be fully controlled. These mystery schools, all of your religions, all of your dogmas, all of these that have secrets, all have penalties. Every one of them will take your life away; they will take the love away from you which is worse than taking your life. The only school that exists is LIFE and that is no mystery....Why are you not yet living it? (pg 422-424)

Within your beings, always simply remember, if you follow no other truth, follow the truth that within your being is called joy. If you follow that , you're always going to be right where you need to be, and you will always have life within your being. That's where you need to be. ...when you are faced with something that gives you fear, realize that fear is of man's mind- not God's. So realize that within your being you already have everything you need to go home. (p437) Joy is the fastest way to bypass the circuitry you have with your subpersonalities. (p166)
