"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
"We are all a part of a worldwide death culture that is dedicated to chaos, ignorance, and self-degeneration." ~Prof. Spira
"The entire thrust of social media is not to provide a neutral platform that delivers neutral content to people. It's to play on the brain chemistry of addiction, it's to tap into primal wants, psychologies of approval and lack and craving. If you're outraged on social media then you will algorithmically be fed more outrage, it's automatic." ~Joshua Michael Schrei
"We can understand one another; but each one is able to explain only himself." ~Herman Hesse
"Wisdom can not be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else.... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, be fortified by it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it." ~Herman Hesse
