If those who lead you say to you, "See,

birds of the sky will precede you. If
they say to you, "It is in the sea," then

Kingdom is inside of you, and it is

There are grounds for cautious


optimism that we may now be near the
end of the search for the ultimate laws
of nature.
- Stephen W. Hawking

I believe there is no source of

Few people are capable of expressing

The opposite of a fact is falsehood, but


the opposite of one profound truth may
very well be another profound truth.
- Niels Bohr

...the sense of being which in calm


hours arises, we know not how, in the
soul, is not diverse from things, from
space, from light, from time, from
man, but one with them and proceeds
obviously from the same source....
Here is the fountain of action and of
thought.... We lie in the lap of
immense intelligence.

The power of Thought, the magic of

- Lord Byron

How wonderful that we have met with


a paradox. Now we have some hope of

Not only does God play dice, but... he

stupid he becomes, because his
anxiety to avoid unavoidable death
becomes more and more acute. What

Cease from practice based on


intellectual understanding, pursuing
words, and following after speech, and
learn the backward step that turns
your light inward to illuminate your
self. Body and mind of themselves will
drop away, and your original face will
be manifest.
- Dogen

Although each of us obviously inhabits


a separate physical body, the
laboratory data from a hundred years

indicate that there is no separation in
consciousness.

What the Bleep Do We Know!?™ - The Movie

Everything you see has its roots in the


unseen world. The forms may change,
yet the essence remains the same.
Every wonderful sight will vanish;
every sweet word will fade, But do not
be disheartened, The source they come
from is eternal, growing, Branching
out, giving new life and new joy. Why
do you weep? The source is within you
And this whole world is springing up
from it.
- Jelauddin Rumi

A full-spectrum approach to human


consciousness and behavior means
that men and women have available to
them a spectrum of knowing -a
spectrum that includes, at the very
least, the eye of flesh, the eye of mind,
and the eye of spirit.
- Ken Wilber

All speech, action, and behavior are


fluctuations of consciousness. All life
emerges from, and is sustained in,
consciousness. The whole universe is
the expression of consciousness. The
reality of the universe is one
unbounded ocean of consciousness in
motion.
- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Consciousness is the basis of all life


and the field of all possibilities. Its
nature is to expand and unfold its full
potential. The impulse to evolve is thus
inherent in the very nature of life.
- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Knowledge is structured in

education takes place in the field of

enlightenment. Knowledge is not the
basis of enlightenment, enlightenment

- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

All that we are is the result of what we


have thought. The mind is everything.
What we think, we become.
- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

It is proof of a base and low mind for


one to wish to think with the masses or
majority, merely because the majority
is the majority. Truth does not change
because it is, or is not, believed by a
majority of the people.
- Giordano Bruno

All truths are easy to understand once


they are discovered; the point is to

- Galileo Galilei

Perhaps in time the so-called Dark


Ages will be thought of as including our
own.
- Georg C. Lichtenberg

That which the dream shows is the


shadow of such wisdom as exists in
man, even if during his waking state
he may know nothing about it... We do
not know it because we are fooling
away our time with outward and
perishing things, and are asleep in
regard to that which is real within
ourself.
- Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

When a man undertakes to create


something, he establishes a new
heaven, as it were, and from it the
work that he desires to create flows

into him... For such is the immensity of


man that he is greater than heaven
and earth.
- Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

The universe on a very basic level


could be a vast web of particles which
remain in contact with one another
over distance, and in no time.
- R. Nadeau and M. Kafatos

Man did not weave the web of life, he


is merely a strand in it. Whatever he
does to the web, he does to himself.
- Chief Seattle

The state of least excitation of


consciousness is the field of all
possibilities.
- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

If I could take all your words away and


give you but a sparse few, they would
be: ‘I now know, I am absolute, I am
complete, I am God, I am.’ If there
were no other words but these, you
would no longer be limited to this
plane.
- Ramtha

Two things are infinite: the universe


and human stupidity...and I'm not sure
about the universe.
- Albert Einstein

...perhaps there is a pattern set up in


the heavens for one who desires to see
it, and having seen it, to find one in
himself.
- Plato

Know thyself.
- Socrates

Reality is not only stranger than we


suppose but stranger than we can
suppose.
- J. B. S. Haldane

Quit thy childhood, my friend, and


wake up!
- Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I want to know how God created this


world. I am not interested in this or
that phenomenon, in the spectrum of
this or that element. I want to know
His thoughts; the rest are details.
- Albert Einstein

Suddenly, from behind the rim of the


moon, in long, slow-motion moments
of immense majesty, there emerges a
sparkling blue and white jewel, a light,
delicate, sky-blue sphere laced with
slowly swirling veils of white, rising
gradually like a small pearl in a thick
sea of black mystery. It takes more
than a moment to fully realize this is
Earth…home. My view of our planet
was a glimpse of divinity.
- Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut and
founder, Institute of Noetic Sciences

All matter originates and exists only by


virtue of a force… We must assume
behind this force the existence of a
conscious and intelligent Mind. This
Mind is the matrix of all matter.
- Max Planck, Nobel Prize-winning Father of
Quantum Theory

Mind and intelligence are woven into


the fabric of our universe in a way that
altogether surpasses our
understanding.
- Freeman Dyson

What the Bleep Do We Know!?™ - The Movie

A man of genius makes no mistakes.


His errors are volitional and are the
portals of discovery.
- James Joyce, Ulysses

I have yet to meet a single person


from our culture, no matter what his or
her educational background, IQ, and
specific training, who had powerful
transpersonal experiences and
continues to subscribe to the
materialistic monism of Western
science.
- Albert Einstein

A hundred times every day I remind


myself that my inner and outer life
depend upon the labors of other men,
living and dead, and that I must exert
myself in order to give in the measure
as I have received and am still
receiving.
- Albert Einstein

The significant problems we face


cannot be solved at the same level of
thinking we were at when we created
them.
- Albert Einstein

Darkness cannot drive out darkness;


only light can do that. Hate cannot
drive out hate; only love can do that.
Hate multiplies hate, violence
multiplies violence, and toughness
multiplies toughness, in a descending
spiral of destruction. The chain
reaction of evil must be broken, or we
shall be plunged into the dark abyss of
annihilation.
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

spirituality, visionary consciousness,


and the ability to build and mend
human relationships will be more
important for the fate and safety of
this nation than our capacity to
forcefully subdue an enemy. Creating
the world we want is a much more
subtle but more powerful mode of
operation than destroying the one we
don't want.
- Marianne Williamson

He who joyfully marches in rank and


file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by
mistake, since for him the spinal cord

- Albert Einstein

I do not feel obliged to believe that the


same God who has endowed us with
sense, reason, and intellect has
intended us to forgo their use.
- Galileo Galilei

To put the world in order, we must first


put the nation in order; to put the
nation in order, we must put the family
in order; to put the family in order, we
must cultivate our personal life; and to
cultivate our personal life, we must
first set our hearts right.
- Confucius

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice


may attack it, ignorance may deride it,
but in the end, there it is.
