Quotations

Philosophers, spiritual prophets, poets or thought leaders have been quoted at the beginning of each chapter.  A few of these quotations follow:

“As any change must begin somewhere, it is the single individual who will experience it and carry it through.  The change must indeed begin with an individual; it might be any one of us.”

Carl Jung

“The truth is: you don't have a life, you are life. The One Life, the one consciousness that pervades the entire universe and takes temporary form to experience itself as a stone or blade of grass, as an animal, a person, a star or a galaxy.”

Eckhart Tolle

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature."

Joseph Campbell

“…even in dreams, we do not experience what earlier peoples saw when awake.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.”  

Anais Nin

“All religions have always said: there’s only our path, our saviour, our system, our beliefs, our rituals and only through those will you find salvation.  This has been the constant of all religions.”  

Krishnamurti

“And so the mystery remains that we have sorrow so we can understand joy;  Failure so we can recognize success; Pain, so we can relish pleasure.Somehow built into the mystery of this duality in life is a blueprint for growth that has the potential for shaping us.”  

Antoinette Bosco

“With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil…  But for good people to do evil – that takes Religion.”  

Steven Weinberg

“All art intuitively apprehends coming changes in the collective unconsciousness.”  

Carl Jung

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”  

Buddha

“Truth is always present; it only needs to lift the iron lids of the mind’s eye to read its oracles.”  

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“We don't realize that the gods are not out there somewhere. They live in us all. They are the energies of life itself.”  

Joseph Campbell

“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.”  

Henry David Thoreau

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.”  

Carl Jung
