A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on life, nature, observer, and universe

The universe is a more amazing puzzle than ever, as you glance along this bewildering series of animated forms, - the hazy butterflies, the carved shells, the birds, beasts, fishes, snakes, and the upheaving principle of life everywhere incipient, in the very rock aping organized forms.  Not a form so grotesque, so savage, nor so beautiful but is an expression of some property inherent in man the observer, - an occult relation between the very scorpions and man.  I feel the centipede in me, - cayman, carp, eagle, and fox.  I am moved by strange sympathies; I say continually, "I will be a naturalist."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Vernon Howard on witness, observer, watcher, and vernon howard

"When you see something, you react in one of two ways. You either react from knowledge, facts, purity, goodness or it falls on hollowness, on nothing that is real and right. Only two reactions - right, wrong; injurious, healthy. Just two, and I hope already you're impressed by your urgent need to never, ever again forget what you just heard because if you suspect, which you do, that something is causing the wrongness, the mistakes, you can begin to build the necessary foundation of facts, of spiritual knowledge, of awakedness, so that no matter what you see, you won't mangle it. You won't misinterpret, misunderstand it, but will have the right reaction of simply knowing what is going on. And that means - oh, this is essential - that means that no matter what you sight out there, what comes into your view, no matter what it is, you never, ever bring yourself into it as part of the reaction. If you do that, you have wrecked the experience." From a talk given 5/11/1988

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on detachment, observer, and god

To my extreme happiness,
My Lord has come to tell me
That from now on
I must stand apart from my actions,
Divine and undivine.
He alone is the Doer;
I am a mere observer.

Sri Chinmoy

A Quote by Joseph Dispenza on manifestation, reality, observer, desire, awareness, physics, and identity

We have to formulate what we want, and be so concentrated on it, and so focused on it, and have so much of our awareness on it, that we lose track of ourselves.  We lose track of time. We lose track of our identity. And the moment we become so involved in that experience, that we will lose track of ourselves, we lose track of time, that picture is the only picture that is real, and everybody's had that experience when they've made up their mind that they've wanted something. That's Quantum Physics.  That's Manifesting Reality. That's The Observer To The Full Effect.
