"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

Omniformis Omnis Intellectus Est


It is right, it is fitting, it is lawful...as much as in me lies.


Know thyself, and dance.

We are only geometricians of matter;
the Greeks were, first of all,
geometricians in the apprenticeship to virtue.

~Simone Weil

Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and the spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

~Albert Einstein


Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud,
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,



I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

- William Ernest Henley


Alchemy and the Secret Doctrine


Akasha is one of the cosmic principles and is a plastic matter,
creative in its physical nature, immutable in its higher principles. It is the
quintessence of all possible forms of energy, material, psychic, or
spiritual; and contains within itself the germs of universal creation,
which sprout forth under the impulse of the Divine Spirit.



He thought the world's heart beat at some terrible cost and that the
world's pain and its beauty moved in a relationship of diverging equity
and that in this headlong deficit the blood of multitudes might
ultimately be exacted for the vision of a single flower.

--All the Pretty Horses ~Cormac McCarthy


And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound and
solemn: It was the spirit of gravity. Through him all things fall.

Thus Spake Zarathustra ~Nietzsche


Mind at Large


(Some people) seem born with a kind of bypass that circumvents the
reducing valve. In others, temporary bypasses may be acquired...through
there flows, not indeed the perception of "everything that is happening
everywhere in the universe",...but something more than, and above all
something different from, the carefully selected, utilitarian material
which our narrow minds regard as a complete, or at least sufficient,
picture of reality.

-Aldous Huxley

Who ARE you?



Alice tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"

"In THAT direction," the Cat said, waving its right paw round, "lives a
Hatter: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a March
Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad.
You're mad."

"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

~Lewis Carroll

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom

TERRORISM NEWS


'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell


war is terror
