For the mind

"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened". - Douglas Adams - Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

"Development is now regarded less as a linear sequence of stages, in which a mature version of self replaces an infantile version of self, than as an accretion of new experiences which are additions to rather than replacements for earlier experiences.... Human experience is constructed out of many experiential dimensions, perceptions, memories, imagination, available cultural images and mythologies, bodily sensations, and so on, all operation as psychic building materials. Each of those dimensions of our experience impose constraints upon the range of what can be constructed, but none of them determines the result in a direct casual fashion". - Stephen Mitchell - "Can Love Last?"

"We experience a lot of activity without accomplishing much of anything importan"t. - Steve Reedy

"Our life stories can evolve as we grow throughout the life span. The capacity to integrate the past, present, and future allows us to move into more coherent levels of self-knowledge." - Siegel & Hartzell - "Parenting From The Inside Out"

"Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world. In our endeavour to understand reality we are somewhat like a man trying to understand the mechanism of a closed watch. He sees the face and the moving hands, even hears it ticking, but he has no way of opening the case. If he is ingenious he may form some picture of the mechanism which could be responsible for all the things he observes, but he may never be quite sure his picture is the only one which could explain his observations. He will never be able to compare his picture with the real mechanism and he cannot even imagine the possibility of the meaning of such a comparison." - Albert Einstein The Evolution of Physics (1938)

"The dream of the planet is the collective dream of billions of smaller, personal dreams, which together create a dream of a family, a dream of a community, a dream of a city, a dream of a country, and finally a dream of the whole humanity. The dream of the planet includes all of society's rules, its beliefs, its laws, its religions, its different cultures and ways to be, its governments, schools, social events, and holidays.... the humans who live before us teach us how to dream the way society dreams" - Don Miguel Ruiz, "The Four Agreements"

“…for anything that you want in your life – a healthy body, a satisfactory vocation, friends, opportunities, and above all, the understanding of God – you must furnish a mental equivalent. Supply yourself with a mental equivalent and the thing must come to you. Do not supply the mental equivalent and you have no hope of bringing that desire to you.” - Emmet Fox, Teacher

“If we believe it’s going to rain, then we walk and act differently even in the midst of a drought.” - Mary Manin Morrissey, “No Less Than Greatness”

“Half the problem of getting an answer is being able to listen” - Nari

"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours." - Richard Bach, "Illusion"

“The matter that we take into our bodies helps to shape our physical structures, and by the same token, the thoughts we project, and the emotional reactions that pass through our bodies, also affects it’s form and texture. Thus the body is a reflection of the mind, and in turn, as the body develops in certain ways, the mind will act as a reflection of the body.” - Paula Horan, "Empowerment Through Reiki"

“What you resist persists. What you look at disappears". "You cannot experience yourself as what you are until you've encountered what you are not". - Neale Donald Walsch, "Conversations with God

"There can be peace in the unknown. It is the known, or what we precieve as the known, that causes conflict." - Steve Reedy

"To abolish all valleys is to get rid of all mountains." - Alan W. Watts

"The Human is the only animal on earth that pays a thousand times for the same mistake" - Don Miguel Ruiz, "The Four Agreements"


“Our lives reflect the pictures we create in our minds, and therefore we should pay close attention to our mental doodling” - Mary Manin Morrissey, “No Less Than Greatness”

"A man is the facade of a temple wherein all wisdom and all good abide. What we commonly call man, the eating, drinking, planting, counting man, does not, as we know him, represent himself, but misrepresents himself. Him we do not respect, but the soul, whose organ he is, would he let it appear though his action, would make our knees bend. When it breaths through his intellect, it is genius, when it breaths through his will, it is virtue; when it flows through his affection, it is love". - Emerson - Essays: The Over-Soul

"Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too." - Voltaire

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle

“Reality is only a concept” ... “Life is only a Rorschach ink-blot” - Alan Watts

"By living each day as if it were our last, we live in a constant state of worry about tomorrow. Live in the moment, instead of for the momen"t. - Steve Reedy

“Things are always changing - our thoughts, cells, hormones, hairline, consciousness, relationship, and the landscape around us. Instead of trying to freeze the present moment and hanging onto it, we need to remember that life is a process of constantly letting go.” - Charlotte Kasl, "If the Buddha Dated"

“The human spirit lives on creativity and dies in conformity and routine.” - Vilayat Inayat Khan

“Peace - it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” - Unknown

“Transformation means removing the rocks from our garden, the boulders that block our naturalness... when we were kids, we were free and innocent. As time passed, we accumulated the rocks of resistance, piling them up until they become mountains in our minds. Transformation comes not by adding things on but by removing what didn't belong in the first place. We change by pealing away all the toxic layers, emotional debris, and beliefs that we have added on over the years. We forget that there is something perfect already within us; through years of habit and hypnosis we took a wrong turn, and now we automatically look outside ourselves for something that will fix us”. - Baron Baptiste, "40 Days to personal revolution


"If you don't live your life being you, then you don't exist." - Judy Reedy, My Mom

“On the dogmas of religion, as distinguished from moral principals, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarreling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of the human mind.” - Thomas Jefferson

Our internal states have a significant influence on the external world. If we create peace in our own bodies and minds, the world becomes more peaceful. - Shari Friedrichsen “Peace in Practice” Yoga Journal May 2005

“The sufferings of mankind, especially the psychological ones, derive almost entirely from false problems... from bothering our minds over questions that are not real questions at all. And, when these problems are solved, when it seems that we were asking the wrong question, then one gets this astonishing sensation of seeing that problems only exist in a mental sphere... they exist as a result of thought, where as the world which is not thought, the world which simply 'is', is entirely free of problems. Now, that is something completely against our general common sense. We think the physical world is full of problems and we have ‘thought’ as a valuable instrument to enable us to solve them. And, it's true,’ thought’ is a valuable instrument, but, we might ask for whom? It's valuable for those who can use it, but not so valuable for those who are used by it.” - Alan Watts, Lecture - Insight & Ecstasy

"One evening an old Cherokee told her granddaughter about a battle that goes on inside people. She said, "My daughter, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The granddaughter thought about it for a minute and then asked her grandmother: "Which wolf wins?" The old woman simply replied, "The one you feed." - Unknown
