|Think for yourself. Question authority. Thoughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational, authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerablility to inform yourself. Think for yourself. Question authority. -- Timothy Leary|
|CAUTION: Proper use of the brain in not endorsed by federal governments nor huge corporations involved in serious financial profit from a brainwashed and enslaved population. Mild discomfort may occur as confusing independent thought challenges you current view of the world... Information is power. -- Timothy Leary|
|I have come to understand that an inflated ego and a depreciated ego are simply distortions of the ego, two sides of the same coin that reflect a deep attachment to chronis, inaccurate patterns of perception.
-- Nora Jamieson in her article Divine Pride
|The saving of the world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.
-- Dr. MLK, Jr.
|The "his-story" of human "progress"; a mass-story, holographically apperaing on all screens; large and small, public and private, corporate and personal mind. This story is a sickness, a lie. Terminal, though profitable. A terrible mistake taught as "realism" in every school.
How do we pull back from this suicidal implosion; the noir fate of buffoons? We must rediscover the non-human context, remember the global multi-dimensional context: put ourselves organically (as dreamers rather than robots), we must become WILD. To rebecome wild, we must achieve a spiritual clarity(the health of any wild animal): watchfulness, wisdom, and strength of heart, mind, and body. Not easy in a human-mad world that rewards arrogance, denial, and weakness; where the most-fooled rule.
--Barbara Mor, in the foreword for Full Circle.. Barbara Mor is the co-author of Great Cosmic Mother.
|Even the most pitiful human, physically weak from an urban lifestyle, mentally slowed by reliance on leaders and priests, TV and computers, distracted by the endless parade of meaningless new toys -- has a primeval savannah inside him. So-called civilized man developed conceptual reality as a barrier for protection from the unknown; but the same barriers block sight of those infinite grasslands of human potential.
-- Lone Wolf Circles

|There are mysteries beyond the minds of mortal man, and to deny their existence is to spend a life of half-consciousness.
