"The real secret of magic is that the world is made of words, and that if you know the words that the world is made of you can make of it whatever you wish."

— Terrence McKenna

A Perfect Future

sreeya devi's picture

"I believe that liberation, or let's even say, decency as a human quality, is an actual resonance and anticipation of this future perfected state of humanity. We can will the perfect future into being by becoming microcosms of the perfect future, and no longer casting blame outward on institutions or hierarchies of responsibility and control, but by realizing the opportunities here, the responsibilities here, and the two may never be congruent again, and the salvation of your immortal soul may depend on what you do with the opportunity."

— Terrence McKenna

the Eyes Of Love

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door,
buy guns, close yourself off.
The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world, right now:
Take all that money we spend on defense and weapons each year and spend it on educating, feeding and clothing the poor of the world which it would many times over - not one human being excluded.

And we can explore space together,
both inner and outer, forever,
in peace.

— Bill Hicks

Flowers Of Life

sreeya devi's picture

"The perfume of flowers goes not against the wind.
Not even that of sandalwood, of rose-bay, or of jasmine.
But the perfume of virtue goes against the wind,
and travels to the ends of the earth"

— the Dhammapada (penguin classics version) Chapter 4: Flowers Of Life

Of Infinite Freedom

"Who can trace the path of those who know the right food of life and, rejecting over-abundance, soar in the sky of liberation, the infinite Void without beginning? Their course is as hard to follow as that of the birds in the air".

— Dhammapada (penguin classics version) Chapter 7: Infinite Freedom

"The desire to transcend one's own ego boundaries, to share completely, of even for a moment, the consciousness of another person, must be a universal longing".
