is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear
is that we are powerful beyond measure
It is our light not our darkness that frightens us

The Journey, 1954

A human being is part of a whole
called by us the "Universe"
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings,
as something separated from the rest
a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us
restricting us to our personal desires
and for affection for a few persons nearest us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circles of compassion
to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Albert Einstein

and my methods of thought
I come to the conclusion

Life must be lived as play
playing certain games
making sacrifices
singing and dancing
and then a man
will be able to
propitiate the gods.

You cannot have What you seek
Until you Seek what you have
Then you realize
That you cannot have Anything
But that you are Everything

Thoughts Across the Light Fence

You need your ego to survive
in the three-dimensional world,
but you need only that part of the ego
which processes information.
The rest - pride, arrogance, defensiveness, fear -
is worse than useless.
The rest of the ego
separates you from wisdom, joy, and God.
Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
Only Love Is Real

Einstein Was right
God Does not Play dice With the Universe
He plays Poker
And It's your deal
Lonnie Lockett

Self-pity in its early stages

Only when it hardens
does it become uncomfortable.

It will roll in ecstacy at your feet

In everyone's life, at some time,
our inner fire goes out
It is then burst into flame
by an encounter
with another human being
We should all be thankful
for those people
who rekindle the inner spirit
Albert Schweitzer

Freedom is something people take
and people are as free as they want to be.
