A Quote by Werner Erhard on filter, filters, perception, understanding, true, and truth

Man keeps looking for a truth that fits his reality. Given our reality, the truth doesn't fit. If you experience it, it's the truth. The same thing believed is a lie. In life, understanding is the booby prize.

A Quote by Brent Haskell on ego, god, existence, perception, and reality

" essence the thought framework
Upon which the ego is based
Is separation.
The whole purpose for creating an ego in the first place
Was to attempt to gain some measure of experience
Of what it would be like to be separate.

And so long as you believe in the ego, which is to believe
That your thoughts about who you are are real,
Of that those thoughts have any consequence whatsoever--
As long as you believe either of those--
You are substantiating and supporting
The thought system of separation.

Separation, above all, cannot exist.
For the reality of God is Oneness.
And nothing exists except that which God has created,
And fully extended Himself into.
So there is not only nothing which is not OF GOD,
There is nothing which IS NOT God Itself."

A Quote by Philip Jason on bad, good, and perception

if it ever seems to us that the world is a place where bad things only happen to good people, it is because we still believe that bad things happening to bad people is a good thing.

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on pain, love, and perception

Most men and women lead lives at the worst so painful, at best so monotonous, poor and limited that the urge to escape, the longing to transcend themselves if only for a few moments, is and has always been one of the principal appetites of the soul

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

A Quote by Lotte Lehmann on paralyzed, enchained, patterns, build, youthful, feeling, groping, thought, flowering, and perception

Do not become paralyzed and enchained by the set patterns which have been woven of old.  No, build from your own youthful feeling, your own groping thought and your own flowering perception.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on attitude, perception, circumstances, freedom, and choice

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

A Quote by Willa Sibert Cather on miracles, healing, perception, hearing, and seeing

Miracles rest not so much upon healing power coming suddenly near us from afar, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that for the moment our eyes can see and our ears can hear what has been there around us always.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on question, reality, and perception

Is 4 the same 4 for everybody?
Are all sevens equal?

When the convict ponders the light
is it the same light that shines on you?

A Quote by Starhawk on mystery, travel, perception, spirituality, and women

The terrain of the mysteries is the ordinary.  To seek out mystery, we don't have to go anywhere.  We must simply change our preception, our description, our consciousness of where we are.
