A Quote by Pandit Usharbudh Arya on antidote, desire, poison, stems, and surrender

Death is afraid of such powerful brahmacharins who come of their own accord to his door. This stems from a very basic principle of nature. Whatever you treasure most, you love most, desire most in life, and would liike to have, would like to keep, you turn away from it a little, surrender it a little and it will remain yours. On the opposite hand, whatever you detest most in life, absolutely dislike, just turn to it a little and it will stay away from you. It is the principle of innoculation. It applies to all sciences. Poison is cured by poison. Everything is its own antidote. So life has death built into it. The only way to master death is not to run away from it, but to turn to it a little, recognize it daily.

A Quote by Wendell Berry on values, waste, usefulness, nothing, exist, country, natural resources, metamorphosis, bounty, land, junk, garbage, silt, poison, economy, farm, home, loyalty, devotion, humans, unborn, disinvestment, unemployed, homeland, sour

But when nothing is valued for what it is, everything is destined to be wasted. Once the values of things refer only to their future usefulness, then an infinite withdrawal of value from the living present has begun. Nothing (and nobody) can then exist that is not theoretically replaceable by something (or somebody) more valuable. The country that we (or some of us) had thought to make our home becomes instead 'a nation rich in natural resources'; the good bounty of the land begins its mechanical metamorphosis into junk, garbage, silt, poison, and other forms of 'waste.' "The inevitable result of such an economy is that no farm or any other usable property can safely be regarded by anyone as a home, no home is ultimately worthy of our loyalty, nothing is ultimately worth doing, and no place or task or person is worth a lifetime's devotion. 'Waste,' in such an economy, must eventually include several categories of humans--the unborn, the old, 'disinvested' farmers, the unemployed, the 'unemployable.' Indeed, once our homeland, our source, is regarded as a resource, we are all sliding downward toward the ashheap or the dump.

Wendell Berry (1934 -)

A Quote by Mitch Albom on anger, poison, hurt, hatred, blade, and harm

Holding anger is a poison...It eats you from inside...We think that by hating someone we hurt them...But hatred is a curved blade...and the harm we do to others...we also do to ourselves.

A Quote by Anna Johnson on toxicity, poison, worry, and health

It's easy to believe that toxins are assaulting us on all fronts, but the worst toxins are often within.  Worry is a toxin, envy is a toxin, self-loathing and fear and free-floating anxiety are all poisonous to our health.

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on poison, earth, and tellus

"The poison was brewed in these West lands but it has spat itself everywhere by now.  However far you went you would find the machines, the crowded cities, the empty thrones, the false writings, the barren beds:  men maddened with false promises and soured with true miseries, worshipping the iron works of their own hands, cut off from Earth their Mother and from the Father in Heaven.  You might go East so far the East became West and you returned to Britain across the great Ocean, but even so you would not have come out anywhere into the light.  The shadow of one dark wing is over all Tellus." -Ransom

A Quote by Walter Russell on god, divinity, consciousness, love, health, healing, sickness, ill, toxic, poison, balance, body, harm, loving, universe, perfection, creation, inspiration, electricity, and iam

All of man’s ills are due to his lack of knowing God within him. The perfection of God’s universe is founded upon its perfection of Balance.
All of man’s ills are caused by toxic poisons generated in his body through unbalance affecting his power of control over the functions of his electric body.
Man, as an extension of God, is creator of his own electric body. He is master of his electric body to the extent of his knowing the Light of God in him.
... God says to man: »What I do, ye shall do«, but man is unbelieving for long ages.
(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, p. 129)
