Times of great calamity and confusion have ever been productive of the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace, and the brightest thunderbolt is elicited from the darkest storm.
Charles Caleb Colton (via elige)
Inability to accept the mystic experience is more than an intellectual handicap. Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment is a serious and dangerous hallucination. For in a civilization equipped with immense technological power, the sense of alienation between man and nature leads to the use of technology in a hostile spirit—-to the “conquest” of nature instead of intelligent co-operation with nature.
Alan Watts (via zeitgeistmovement)
I sat thinking how terribly sad it was that people are made in such a way that they get used to something as extraordinary as living.
Jostein Gaarder, The Solitaire Mystery (submitted by noonedonatespurple)
What you think and what you feel and what you manifest is always a match. Every single time. No exception.
Esther Hicks - Abraham (via nirvikalpa)
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.
Jack Kerouac (via slychedelic)
