A Quote by George Fowler on artisan, atrocities, fear, footnote, god, holocausts, jeopardy, mountains, nightmares, peace, and personal experience

Now I understood for the first time that all these problems are caused by a race asleep and thrashing about in its panicked nightmares. There will be wars and holocausts and genocides as long as God is portrayed and thought of as a tight-minded legislator, a feudal lord, an offended King, a hypersensitive Artisan – even if church managers condescendingly tack onto that ridiculous list the not-very-convincing footnote that He is also loving. As long as people dream that they are insecure and needy in some sort of eternal jeopardy, there will be atrocities. But as the human race grows up spiritually, and as individuals gain a personal experience of the God they have been worshipping in fear, they will recognize that much of their theology and philosophy is built on nightmares. That will be the day of peace. I suddenly found myself unwilling to sit it out in the mountains of Utah. I wanted to play an active role in the process of the world’s awakening.

A Quote by Lena Lees on kuan yin, dreams, nightmares, chakras and emotions, hypnosis, dream analysis, preventive medicine, sound tuning, and next life

"For any person, a certain organ can be the source of nightmares. Each person, of course is unique. A person might mention they've experienced a nightmare. The nightmare may be trying to inform the person a certain organ needs particular nutrients, elements. As we've discussed the chakras also need particular nutrients, elements. Certain emotions also live in the chakras. Limiting emotions can block off certain areas of the body. An individual, then, can utilize this approach (hypnosis and dream analysis) as a possible preventive medicine warding off illness in certain prone areas of the body."
"Once this instrument [the lute Kuan Yin was playing] is correctly tuned and kept tuned any amount of chaos won't matter, won't effect it," remarks Kuan Yin. ("Of course," explains Lena, "this is Kuan Yin's metaphor for keeping the body chakras well-tuned. She's telling me this is a continuation of her message concerning the effects of sound and vibrations upon physicality. She is also saying that the power of sound (and pulse) is why music is so calming and comforting.")
"I wish someone would do sound tuning of the chakras. Sound comes first in the universe. We're all made of sound. Kuan Yin then described a computerized devise that could measure and adjust the sound vibration for each chakra: "It would be like having one's hearing checked. Only one would be working with the energy centers-the chakras. Individuals could get more in touch with their own pulses and their relationship with sound. It would feel really good and could possibly be used for pain management. There will be in the coming years a proportionally larger group of the elderly in your society. People will live longer. However, they will have many misalignments in the chakras. Sound therapy could be very soothing as well as help an individual to adjust, to be ready to move on to the next life."

A Quote by G.K. Chesterson on anarchy, nightmares, and pure d awesomeness

“It does seem to have a moral under all its gaiety, “ assented Syme; “but may I ask you two questions?  You need not fear to give me information, because, as you remember, you very wisely exorted from me a promise not to tell the police, a promise I shall certainly keep.  So it is in mere curiosity that I make my queries.  First of all, what is it really about?  What is it you object to?  You want to abolish Government?”
    “To abolish God!” said Gregory, opening the eyes of a fanatic.  “We do not only want to upset a few despotisms and police regulations; that sort of anarchism does exist, but it is a mere branch of the Nonconformists.  We dig deeper and we blow you higher.  We wish to deny all those arbitrary distinctions of vice and virtue, honour and treachery, upon which mere rebels base themselves.  The silly sentimentalists of the French Revolution talked of the Rights of Man!  We hate Rights as we hate Wrongs.  We have abolished Right and Wrong.”

G.K. Chesterson
