"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides comes out, and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." ~Cynthia Occelli
"Only the truth that is your own liberates.
Anybody else's truth always becomes a bondage.
It is borrowed knowledge.
Go past the thoughts into silence.
Go past the silence into stillness.
Go past stillness into the heart.
Let love consume all that is left of you." ~Kabir
"We are by now so accustomed to the cult of expertise that the very notion of honoring and paying heed to our directly felt experience of things - of insects and wooden floors, of broken down cars and bird-picked apples, and the scents rising from the soil - seems odd and somewhat misguided as a way to find out what's worth knowing." ~David Abram
