A Quote by Dave Matthews on dream and reality

Just knowing that the world is round
Here I'm dancing on the ground
Am I right side up or upside down?
Is this real or am I dreaming?

A Quote by Kandra Gardner on soul mate, soulmate, affinity, allures, reality, and delusion

"A soul mate is one with whom you have a graceful affinity and while allures, too profound to value as anything more than chance. They may reappear from time to time as a delusion when indeed they are reality."

A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on god and reality

There is only God.  REALITY is God and has never required your belief.  This reality no "one" survives.  In Ultimate Reality no "one" is saved either -- there is simply nothing to save you "from" :  you have not emerged from any "other" and there is no place else for "you" to disappear into.  Ever.

A Quote by Epicurus on god, faith, religion, evil, atheism, truth, reality, intelligence, presence, enlightenment, and motivation


If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to


 Then he is not omnipotent.


If he is able, but not willing

 Then he is malevolent.


If he is both able and willing

 Then whence cometh evil?


If he is neither able nor willing

 Then why call him God?

A Quote by Sol Luckman on reality, unreality, ontology, truth, observation, awareness, consciousness, masks, persona, and existentialism

Ever since learning I wasn’t the only unreal person in the world, I’d developed an annoying habit of studying people to determine their true ontological status. I studied people in class, the library, the cafeteria, my dorm, around campus, while running the Gargoyle Castle Loop. Now, under the influence of acid, I began to suspect everyone was unreal. That behind all the masks and makeup, the smiles and laughter, the quips and repartees, there was a good chance of finding absolutely nothing.
