He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

"God is more than the sum of all the probable systems of reality he has created, and yet he is within each one of these, without exception. He is therefore within each man and women , he is also within each spider, shadow and frog, and this is what man does not like to admit. God can only be experienced, and you experience him whether or not you realize it, through your own existence. He is not human in your tems at all, nor in your terms is he a personality. Your ideas of personality are too limited to contain the facets of his multidimensional existence." - Seth Speaks -The Eternal Validity of the Soul - Channeled Book by Jane Roberts

―  Joseph Goebbels (Hitler's minister of propaganda)

"Do not believe in what you have heard; do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations; do not believe anything because it is rumored and spoken of by many; do not believe merely because the written statements of some old sage are produced; do not believe in conjectures; do not believe in that as a truth to which you have become attached by habit; do not believe merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
― Marianne Williamson

"History unfolds a pageantry of eternal law. Science is revealing more and more of the secrets of divine geometry. Art, music, poetry, have come a long way since the days of Pythagoras. Never before has more beauty been available to man, and never before has the human heart been more hungry. Long ago man entered the sanctuary, and there the mood of mystery came upon him. Now he must create this mood within himself, and when he does so the world again becomes the stage of sacred drama." ― Manly P. Hall [The Psychology of Religious Ritual, page 26]

Great Spirit Prayer (Native American Prayer):
"Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to all the world.
Hear me. I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things
you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - Myself.
Make me always ready to come to
you with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame."

"4 Laws in Creation:

Except for the first three laws, which never change."
(Bashar/Darryl Anka)

"In many roles I saw these Lords of Light
who came to show me the Creation of All.

as I once had before.

They are all the same
All One Soul
I am, as they are.
We are One."
(The Emerald Tablets - The Halls of Amenti)

"To dream of a world, I might never see
Where there is peace and love and harmony
And everyone, from big to small
Respect each other, everyone and all
Where everyone's right and no one is wrong
And all stand united, loving and strong
Doesn't that seem too good to be true?
But is that really so hard to do?
The day will come, I hope and I pray
I feel it is soon, but not today
So until then I will do my part
And when that is done I will depart."
(poem by Edward Namerdy)

quote - Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama)

"One day, long before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and found all my masks were stolen. The seven masks I have fashioned and worn in seven lives. I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting, 'Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves.' And when I reached the market place, a youth standing on a house-top cried, 'He is a madman.' I looked up to behold him; the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time. For the first time the sun kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I cried, 'Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks.'"

was a 13th-century Persian Muslim Poet, 
Jurist, Theologian & Sufi Mystic. 
One of Rūmī's timeless and beautiful poems:
"Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam or Eve or any
origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.
I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that breath
breathing human being."
~ Jalāl ad-Dīn Muammad Rūmī ~
