  1. #1
    “I do not know what ages passed before the human race was created, yet I have no doubt that no created thing is co-eternal with the Creator.”

  3. #3
    “The problem of human existence is the forgetfulness of the Divine essence of the Self and the identification with the body as the Self.”
  4. #4
    “If you have developed enough spiritual sensitivity to understand that there is no abiding peace or happiness to be found in ordinary human existence, you are qualified to study the deeper mysteries of spiritual life.”

    “In modern science the methods of analysis are principally applied to investigating the nature of material entities. Thus, the ultimate nature of matter is sought through a reductive process and the macroscopic world is reduced to the microscopic world of particles.

    “Growing up as a human being on the planet Earth in the twenty-first century was a real kick in the teeth. Existentially speaking.”
  7. #7
    “We all know that something is eternal. And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth, and it ain’t even the stars . . . everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings.”
  8. #8
    “I believe that our planet is inhabited not only by animals and plants and bacteria and viruses, but also by ideas. Ideas are a disembodied, energetic life-form. They are completely separate from us, but capable of interacting with us—albeit strangely. Ideas have no material body, but they do have consciousness, and they most certainly have will. Ideas are driven by a single impulse: to be made manifest. And the only way an idea can be made manifest in our world is through collaboration with a human partner. It is only through a human’s efforts that an idea can be escorted out of the ether and into the realm of the actual.”
  9. #9
    “We are members of a body, not only when we choose to be, but in our whole existence.”
