The light shines on in the dark and the darkness understands it not. John 1, 5 (NT)
- Paradox is simply the way nonduality looks to the mental [mind] level. Spirit itself is not paradoxical; strictly speaking, it is not characterizable at all. Ken Wilber
- Cognition is necessary but not sufficient. Ken Wilber
- True, what the soul imagines happens only in the mind, but what God imagines happens in reality. ~Carl Jung, CW 12, Page 280.
Judging by these late letters, in Jung's own estimation, complex psychology – and psychology as a whole – had failed to make sufficient social impact, and hence failed to provide adequate antidotes to the "fathers and mothers of all terrors." S. 351-352
- I had to understand, that I was unable to make people see, what I am after. I am practically alone […] I have failed in my foremost task,to open people’s eyes to the fact, that man has a soul and there is a buried treasure in the field and that our religion and philosophyare in a lamentable state. Why indeed should I continue to exist? Jung in a letter Eugene Roth, cited in: Sonu Shamdasani, Jung and the Making of Modern Psychology. A Dream of A Science, S. 351, Cambridge University Press, 2003
- No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell. ~Carl Jung, CW 9ii, Page 43.
- Individuation does not shut one out from the world, but gathers the world to oneself. ~Carl Jung, CW 8, Para 432
- Many people mistakenly overestimate the role of will power and think that nothing can happen to their minds that they do not decide and intend. ~Carl Jung; Man and His symbols, Page 22
- The educated man tries to repress the inferior man in himself, not realizing that by so doing he forces the latter into revolt. ~Carl Jung, CW 11, Para 136
- I am always profoundly impressed by the riches of Greek mythology, which have hitherto been presented so paltrily. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 376
- Have your congregation understood that they must close their ears to the traditional teachings and go through the darknesses of their own souls and set aside everything in order to become that which every individual bears in himself as his individual task, and that no one can take this burden from him? Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 76.
- A variety of forms is revealed through the realization of the self. The self is dissolved into many egos. When the self has become conscious it leads to "participation mystique." Carl Jung, Conversations with C.G. Jung, Page 36,
- One of the fundamental causes of the disease of communication, and of violence and war, is that human beings in general do not know how to sustain their participation in communication in the face of disagreement.
Instead of sustaining a civil and rational conversation, and mutually evolving understanding of each other’s different perspective, people either stop speaking with one another or start a verbal combat that leads to nowhere intellectually but to possible violence physically.
There are a large number of people who appear to be perpetually “offended” by those who hold different points of view from theirs, while the movement of “political correctness” has taken over the society and “thought-policing” has become rampant. Yasuhiko Genku Kimura
- Wisdom, the capicity to interpret your own intuition, and knowledge of your own sense of destiny, is the alchemy that unlocks your highest potential. Caroline Myss, wis-bit message on Facebook, 11. October 2017

- Mehr Vitalität und mehr Spannkraft sind in unserer gegenwärtigen Kultur sehr gefragt. Wir führen deshalb oft einschlägige Vergleiche an, manche mit einem Augenzwinkern. Wir behaupten, dass die neue Arbeit den Menschen mehr Kraft gibt als Ginseng, Vitamin E, das Wachstumshormon STH oder irgendein anderes Nahrungsergänzungsmittel, die Sie vielleicht schon ausprobiert haben.
Eine Arbeit zu tun, deren sie sich nicht schämen, sondern die sie interessant und aufregend finden, macht sie selbstbewusster als Dang Quo, Taiji oder Seminare in Selbstverteidigung. einer unserer oft verwendeten Sprüche sagt, dass Sex schon sehr gut sein muss, wenn es dem Vergleich mit dieser Art von Arbeit standhalten will.

- Animals don't behave like men,' he said. 'If they have to fight, they fight; and if they have to kill they kill. But they don't sit down and set their wits to work to devise ways of spoiling other creatures' lives and hurting them. They have dignity and animality. Richard Adams

- The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it. George Orwell
- Die herrschende Elite wird zu ihrem eigenen Schutz Privatarmeen unterhalten. Um ihre Herrschaft zu sichern, werden diese Eliten fruehzeitig den totalen Ueberwachungsstaat schaffen und eine weltweite Diktatur errichten. Die ergebenen Handlanger dieses Geldadels werden korrupte Politiker sein. Die Kapitalwelt fördert einen noch nie dagewesenen Faschismus. Zum Zweck der Machterhaltung wird man die Weltbevölkerung auf ein Minimum reduzieren. Dies geschieht mittels kuenstlich erzeugter Krankheiten. Hierbei werden Bio-Waffen als Seuchen deklariert, aber auch mittels gezielter Hungersnöte und Kriege. Die Menschheit wird nach dem Niedergang des Kommunismus ein skrupelloses und menschenverachtendes System erleben, wie es die Welt noch nie erlebt hat. Das System, welches fuer diese Verbrechen verantwortlich sein wird, heisst, unkontrollierter Kapitalismus.

- Love is sweeter than life
Sweeter than honey and the honey comb
And does not shirk from any agony
For those it loves.
Love is the golden child of knowledge
Lord, fill me with eternal love.
Isaac of Nineveh
- These times require people who are: Helping, generous, caring, nourishing, healing, cobbling-things-together, learning, humble, intelligent, strong, improvisational, vulnerable, savvy, systems oriented, understanding, friendly, curious [...] and pissed off at anyone's willingness to put their havingness above other people's survival.
Nora Bateson, Small Arcs of Larger Circles. Framing Through Other Patterns
- The typical voter has chosen to accept a fairly obvious lie: that the government is an instrument of the people, that it is subject to the will of the governed, and nobody (inside or outside of government) is above the law. To these voters, the idea of a highly organized shadow government, operating at the direct expense of the governed, is laughed off without investigation. They might passionately believe that Republicans are corrupt and only the Democrats can save them, or that Democrats are corrupt and only Republicans can save them, but they have yet to recognize the deeper truth: neither Republicans nor Democrats are ever going to save them. Both sides are funded and maintained by the same ruling class to create the illusion of choice. Joseph Plummer, Tragedy and Hope 101. The Illusion of Justice, Freedom, and Democracy
- It's amazing to discover that your're wrong. In fact, it's liberating. It's not a threat. It opens your mind. Lawrence Krauss
- Hatred is just fear dressed up in riot gear. It’s a simple emotion. Truth riles hatred into a frenzy because it’s complex, and hatred can’t compute. Truth is the best weapon because it’s not a weapon at all – weapons destroy, but truth creates. Truth walks right along behind hatred, exchanging land mines for oak trees and smiling all the way. It’s an artisan extending a hand to a mercenary, saying, ‘Come, friend; there are other worlds than these. Haley Elkins
- I consider all these poor savages, whom we commiserate, to be very happy; for pale Envy doth not emaciate them, neither do they feel the inhumanity of those who serve God hypocritically, harassing their fellow-creatures under this mask: nor are they subject to the artifices of those who, lacking virtue and goodness wrap themselves up in a mantle of false piety to nourish their ambition. […] Nor do they understand the art of poisoning, or of corrupting chastity by devilish artifice. There are no poor nor beggars among them. All are rich, because all labor and live. But among us it is very different, for more than half of us live from the labors of the others, having no trades which serve to the support of human life.

My Shadow _BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow—
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
And he sometimes gets so little that there's none of him at all.
He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close beside me, he's a coward you can see;
I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!
One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
- I am beginning to realize that ‘sanity’ is no longer a value or an end in itself. The 'sanity' of modern man as about as useful to him as the huge bulk and muscles of the dinosaur. If he were a little less sane, a little more doubtful, a little more aware of his absurdities and contradictions, perhaps there might be a possibility of his survival. But if he is sane, too sane […] perhaps we must say that in a society like ours the worst insanity is to be totally without anxiety, totally 'sane.' Thomas Merton (1915-1968) Anglo-American Catholic Trappist monk, mystic student of comparative religion, social activist, poet, writer, Raids on the Unspeakable, New Directions, 8th edition 17. January 1966
- An archetype is a thing unto itself and represents the thing as a whole. Marie Louise Von Franz
- The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church. Ferdinand Magellan (1480-1521)
- The world is remade through the power of fierce women performing outrageous acts of creative rebellion. Louise M. Pare, 2011
- Matter is spirit moving slowly enough to be seen. PIERRE TEILHARD DE CHARDIN
Note: Everything is vibration. The fastest particles (thought) we still cannot measure and travel at around 841 trillion miles per second. They surely are invisible. Light travels at 186,000 miles per second. A snail's pace by comparison and yet we still can barely measure it. On the electromagnetic spectrum each 'ray' slows in its oscillation, its vibration until we get down to the visible light spectrum.
- Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author,
- Whatever you experience outside of the body, in a dream for instance, is not experienced unless you take it into the body, because the body means the here and now. If you just have a dream and let it pass by you, nothing has happened at all, even if it is the most amazing dream; but if you look at it with the purpose of trying to understand it, and succeed in understanding it, then you have taken it into the here and now, the body being a visible expression of the here and now. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Visions, S. 1316,
- [Those] who identify with their homeland, youth, and origins, regard them as a kind of lost paradise and yearn to get back again. A Kabbalist has said that after the Fall God removed paradise into the future. They long to get back but don't know that it is the future they long for.
All of them share the same illusion that the goal is somewhere to be found in outward things and conditions, without realizing that psychologically they already carry it within them and always have. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, letter to Torok, 29. April 1959
- A man who is unconscious of himself acts in a blind, instinctive way and is in addition fooled by all the illusions that arise when he sees everything that he is not conscious of in himself coming to meet him from outside as projections upon his neighbor. […]
Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the world of darkness. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW (Collected Works) 13: Alchemical Studies chapter "The Philosophical Tree", S. 335, 1945
- If you imagine someone who is brave enough to withdraw all his projections, then you get an individual who is conscious of a pretty thick shadow. Such a man has saddled himself with new problems and conflicts. He has become a serious problem to himself, as he is now unable to say that they do this or that, they are wrong, and they must be fought against… Such a man knows that whatever is wrong in the world is in himself, and if he only learns to deal with his own shadow he has done something real for the world. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Psychology and Religion, CW 11, chapter "Psychology and Religion: West and East", S. 140, 1938
- To become conscious of (the shadow) involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Aion CW 9, Part II, S. 14, 1951
- Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Psychology and Religion CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East. S. 131, 1938
- Taking it in its deepest sense, the shadow is the invisible saurian tail that man still drags behind him. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, The Integration of the Personality, 1939
- We carry our past with us, to wit, the primitive and inferior man with his desires and emotions, and it is only with an enormous effort that we can detach ourselves from this burden. If it comes to a neurosis, we invariably have to deal with a considerably intensified shadow. [...]
[I]f such a person wants to be cured it is necessary to find a way in which his conscious personality and his shadow can live together. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 11, Psychology and Religion: West and East, Answer to Job, S. 1, 1952
- It is a frightening thought that man also has a shadow side to him, consisting not just of little weaknesses- and foibles, but of a positively demonic dynamism. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 7: Two Essays on Analytical Psychology, "On the Psychology of the Unconscious", S. 35, 1912
- If the activation is due to the collapse of the individual’s hopes and expectations, there is a danger that the collective unconscious may take the place of reality. This state would be pathological. If, on the other hand, the activation is the result of psychological processes in the unconscious of the people, the individual may feel threatened or at any rate disoriented, but the resultant state is not pathological, at least so far as the individual is concerned. Nevertheless, the mental state of the people as a whole might well be compared to a psychosis. […]
Whenever contents of the collective unconscious become activated, they have a disturbing effect on the conscious mind, and contusion ensues. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 8: The Structure and Dynamics of the Psyche, The Psychological Foundation for the Belief in Spirits, S. 595, 1920
- The change of character brought about by the uprush of collective forces is amazing. A gentle and reasonable being can be transformed into a maniac or a savage beast. One is always inclined to lay the blame on external circumstances, but nothing could explode in us if it had not been there. As a matter of fact, we are constantly living on the edge of a volcano, and there is, so far as we know, no way of protecting ourselves from a possible outburst that will destroy everybody within reach. It is certainly a good thing to preach reason and common sense, but what if you have a lunatic asylum for an audience or a crowd in a collective frenzy? There is not much difference between them because the madman and the mob are both moved by impersonal, overwhelming forces. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Psychology and Religion, CW 11, chapter " Psychology and Religion: West and East", S. 25, 1938
- No, the demons are not banished; that is a difficult task that still lies ahead… Every man who loses his shadow, every nation that falls into self-righteousness, is their prey…. We should not forget that exactly the same fatal tendency to collectivization is present in the victorious nations as in the Germans, that they can just as suddenly become a victim of the demonic powers. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, The Postwar Psychic Problems of the Germans, 1945
- If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East, "Psychology and Religion" S. 131, 1938
- To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light. Once one has experienced a few times what it is like to stand judgingly between the opposites, one begins to understand what is meant by the self. Anyone who perceives his shadow and his light simultaneously sees himself from two sides and thus gets in the middle. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Good and Evil in Analytical Psychology CW 10, chapter "Civilization in Transition", S. 872, 1959
- After listening for almost twenty-five years to the stories my patients tell me about sociopaths who have invaded and injured their lives, when I am asked, “How can I tell whom not to trust?” the answer I give usually surprises people. The natural expectation is that I will describe some sinister-sounding detail of behavior or snippet of body language or threatening use of language that is the subtle giveaway. Instead, I take people aback by assuring them that the tip-off is none of these things, for none of these things is reliably present. Rather, the best clue is, of all things, the pity play. The most reliable sign, the most universal behavior of unscrupulous people is not directed, as one might imagine, at our fearfulness. It is, perversely, an appeal to our sympathy. Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door
- There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen. Rumi
- To be wild is not to be crazy or psychotic. True wildness is a love of nature, a delight in silence, a voice free to say spontaneous things, and an exuberant curiosity in the face of the unknown. Robert Bly
- Satan is not a spirit of destruction. There is no essential evil in the universe. Our present form of the devil is merely derived from the Greek nature god Pan.
As Goethe says, Mephistopheles, or Satan, “is part of the power that still works for good while ever scheming ill.” Satan is really karma, but he is more than that. He is the temptation from which arises strength. When the Mysteries were celebrated in ancient Egypt, there was an evil spirit called Typhon or Set who brought about the death of the good Osiris. It is the red Set that has given us our concept of the devil; but Set was nothing but the material world, the ground of man’s temptation, and also the environment in which he gains immortality through self-discipline. Therefore, Set, or Satan is divine opportunity; the world into which we come in ignorance but from which we depart in wisdom. Manly Palmer Hall
- One of the most wicked destructive forces, psychologically speaking, is unused creative power ... If someone has a creative gift and out of laziness, or for some other reason, doesn't use it, the psychic energy turns to sheer poison. That's why we often diagnose neuroses and psychotic diseases as not-lived higher possibilities. Marie-Louise von Franz
- Intelligent people tend to have less friends than the average person. The smarter you are, the more selective you become. Nikola Tesla
A theory that explains everything, explains nothing. Karl Popper
- [Christ] showed me a little thing, the size of a hazelnut,
lying in the palm of my hand.
It was as round as a ball, as it seemed to me.
I looked at it with the eyes of my understanding and thought,
What can this be?

- Wenn die amerikanische Bevölkerung jemals Privatbanken erlaubt, unsere Währung zu kontrollieren, zuerst durch Inflation, dann durch Deflation, werden die Banken und die Konzerne, die sich entwickeln werden, die Leute all ihres Eigentums berauben und ihre Kinder werden obdachlos in dem Kontinent erwachen, den ihre Väter eroberten. Die Zuweisung von Macht sollte von den Banken genommen und wieder auf die Bevölkerung übertragen werden, der sie eigentlich gehört. Thomas Jefferson
- Wir sind der Washington Post, der New York Times, dem Time Magazin und anderen Publikationen dankbar. Ihre Direktoren haben unsere Versammlungen besucht, und sie haben das Versprechen ihrer Diskretion seit nahezu 40 Jahren gehalten. Es wäre für uns unmöglich gewesen, unsere Pläne für die Welt zu entwickeln, wenn wir während dieser Jahre den Scheinwerfern der Publizität ausgesetzt gewesen wären. David Rockefeller
- Wir stehen am Beginn eines weltweiten Umbruchs. Alles, was wir brauchen, ist die eine richtig große Krise und die Nationen werden die Neue Weltordnung akzeptieren. David Rockefeller
- Über ein Jahrhundert lang haben ideologische Extremisten von beiden Seiten des politischen Spektrums gut publizierte Ereignisse wahrgenommen, die Rockefeller-Familie für den übermäßigen Einfluss anzugreifen, den wir ihrer Meinung nach auf amerikanische politische und wirtschaftliche Institutionen ausüben. Manche glauben gar, wir seien Teil einer geheimen Kabale, die entgegen der besten Interessen der USA arbeitet, charakterisieren mich und meine Familie als Internationalisten und Verschwörer, die gemeinsam mit anderen weltweit eine integriertere globale politische und wirtschaftliche Struktur schaffen -- eine Welt, wenn Sie so wollen. Wenn das die Anklage ist, dann bin ich schuldig, und ich bin stolz darauf. David Rockefeller

- Der sittliche Mensch liebt seine Seele, der gewöhnliche sein Eigentum. Konfuzius
- Es ist besser, ein einziges kleines Licht anzuzünden, als die Dunkelheit zu verfluchen. Konfuzius
- Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something – and it is only such love that can know freedom. Jiddu Krishnamurti
- The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, and that one is prepared, in the end, to be defeated, and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one’s love upon other human individuals. George Orwell
Tempus fugit, amor manet. Time flies ... love remains. Die Zeit vergeht, die Liebe besteht.

- When the heart is ready for a fresh beginning unforeseen things can emerge. And in a sense, this is exactly what a beginning does. It is an opening for surprises. Surrounding the intention and the act of beginning there are always exciting possibilities. Such beginnings have their own mind and they invite and unveil new gifts and arrivals in one's life. Beginnings are new horizons that want to be seen, they are not regressions or repetitions. Somehow they win clearance and become fiercely free of the grip of the past. John O'Donohue
- What concerns me is that we may be operating in our daily lives [...] according to principles that we are not really aware of, and that we have been seduced by habit or by diligent thought into believing that we know what we are doing and why, but that this is an illusion. Dorothea Olkowsk, Ph.D. live google hangout, ~2017
- A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth. And since myth is a projection of the depth wisdom of the psyche, by participating in a ritual, participating in the myth, you are being, as it were, put in accord with that wisdom. Joseph Campbell

- Another common misunderstanding is that I derive my idea of “archetypes” from Philo or Dionysius Areopagita, or St. Augustine. It is based solely upon empirical data, viz. upon the astonishing fact that products of the unconscious in modern individuals can almost literally coincide with symbols occurring in all peoples and all times, beyond the possibility of tradition or migration, for which I have given numerous proofs. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Letters Vol. II, Pages 500-502
- For him [Freud] conscience is a human acquisition. I, on the contrary, maintain that even animals have a conscience-dogs, for instance-and empirically there is much to be said for this, since instinctual conflicts are not altogether unknown on the animal level. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Letters Vol. II, Pages 457-458
- How Exactly Do Montessori Children Learn So Much?
"Traditional schooling... is based mostly on two models: the Austrian (Prussian) military, and the American factory/assembly line, both of which were designed to create certain traits in the populace, including punctuality and obedience. These models are also designed to ensure a basic level of what was considered essential knowledge. The driving forces of the resulting system is therefore the curriculum and its delivery, and strict externally imposed structure. The methods used are behavioural (ie, based on the work of Behaviouralists like Skinner and Pavlov).
Montessori, on the other hand, is a system built with the child in mind, and with Dr. Montessori’s assertion that “all politicians can do is keep us out of war, peace is the work of educators”. It is a return to Socratic ideals of education. Montessori, like other constructivist theorists (Itard and Seguin in particular were very influential to her work) understand that there is an element of self-construction in all things natural, including humans.
She understood, long before we had the technology to prove it, that nature and nurture influence each other, and it is through both that the human is created, inside and out. The system she created, therefore, is driven by the idea that providing an environment that feeds moral and psychological development will result in a populace with stronger morals and healthier psyches, which in turn allows the populace to both learn more easily and to better use our knowledge to impact the world in positive ways.

- Ken Wilber, Eye to Eye, 1983: The underlying impulse that we are going to change the world is archaic and narcissistic. The stance that we have the only way or the best way is arrogant and narcissistic. If you feel that you have the best or only way that the poor ignorant folks must rise up to, you are arrogant and narcissistic.
- Ken Wilber, June 2006 [Summarily paraphrased]*: We have the best way, we are in the elite 2%, we are above the herd, we will change the world.
Jim Chamberlain's conclusion: "The herd mentality that Wilber should concern himself with is the herd mentality he encourages in his young followers, the groupthink, the in-group versus out-group dynamic, the loading of the language with jargon and psychobabble, the arrogance, narcissism, and grandiosity."

The reasons why the enlightenment and the ascendency of Western values of liberty, justice and equality have failed mankind is because the cognitive line has far outstripped the moral, empathetic and self developmental lines. The essential delusion and hubris of the West has been that because it understood more that it was better. Events have shown that it is indeed better - at exploiting the resources of the planet, leading to global warming and the mass extinction of species, and at justifying killing, whether by gun, plane, drone, assassination, torture or nuclear weapon. Humanity is arguably less equal than it ever has been before; humanity is less just, with powerful abilities of the state to spy on citizens and deprive them of their civil rights unilaterally and arbitrarily, without cause. Humanity has less liberty, not only due to violations of civil and privacy rights but because it possesses diminishing purchasing power as wealth trickles up, sliding into the gold-lined troughs where the plutocratic schewin feed. Almost everywhere, plutocratic oligarchs, that is, people whose actions are not governed by morality or justice but by financial benefit.
Cognitive maps like the widely accepted “Laffer curve” economic model that justified “trickle down” under Reagan or, more recently, the economic models justifying austerity economics, are now widely seen for what they were: justifications for the acquisition and amassing wealth at the expense of others. Other cognitive maps become accepted due to their ability to effectively sell morality at the front door while the furniture and fixtures are being carried out the back door. Identity politics, feminist, gender, white caucasian male hiarchical rankism, dignitarianism - all of these focus our attention on enlightened ways of thinking so that we leave the gamblers of our money alone at the tables on Wall St and in the banks of the world. These ploys have largely succeeded us in distracting us from fundamental issues of professional criminality and murder.
It is in this context that Integral AQAL has largely played a goal of mollifying intellectuals by making them feel that they are on the cutting edge and participating in a moral enterprise that is founded on human rights. Just what has Integral AQAL done to further human rights? In what ways has it generated a higher level of moral action among its adherents? Where are the examples? How, why and when are adherents of AQAL more likely to protest war, drone assassinations, the breaking of international law, the ascendency of the police state, the prosecution of whistle blowers and the interests of the poor more often or more effectively than the “deplorable” ethnocentrists and tribalists?
Integralists certainly speak up for non-discrimination and identity politics, but on the areas of war, nuclear arms, the breaking of international law and the growth of the plutocracy at the expense of the vast majority, where is the outrage in the integral community? Why is there support for politicians who advocate such policies?
What we find in AQAL is a thoroughly post-modern morality, with contextual validations for war, crime and immorality. Following the Baghavad Gita, Wilber has argued that war from one level of development can be immoral while being moral for a higher level. This stance creates serious, profound problems of moral jeopardy. When group norms are so contextualized, you have no foundation for trust upon which to build any group cohesion or sustain any government. Essentially, you are creating a two tiered system of morality: karma for the deplorables, license for the enlightened. This is not so different from capitalism for the poor and socialism for the rich. What takes the place of a moral compass in such systems, as we see in professional guilds of all sorts, is money and power - increasing influence and the ability to suppress threats and potential threats to expansion in the marketplace.
It remains to be seen whether the hubris and self-centered immorality of maintaining a self-glorifying cognitive map while doing next to nothing to protest the gutting of the economy and destruction of nations will not only be recognized but ameliorated before we either blow ourselves up or destroy the ecosystems upon which our lives depend. I am not optimistic, due to the vast number of intelligent people who are seeing these issues and are not taking a consistent stand against pervasive, deep seated and long-accepted socio-cultural immorality.
What would a moral stand look like?
First, each of us has to be first committed to cleaning up our own life, not to some cognitive map of how the world works, whether scientific, religious, spiritual or multi-perspectival . This means finding, strengthening and following your own life compass as a means to protect yourself against the expectations and justifications of prevailing family, work, cultural, religious and national ethical norms. You do so by interviewing both dream characters and the personifications of your life issues and follow those recommendations that meet the test of triangulation: they are congruent with the advice of respected authorities, your common sense, and your intrasocial collective.
Secondly, your common sense is morally anchored in the principle of reciprocity; do not treat others in ways that you would not want to be treated. Ignore stupid and irrelevant exceptions, such as not challenging harmful addictions or creating embarrassment or enmity by calling out bad behavior. Do such things, even if people get angry, as a way of calling them to a higher standard of wakefulness. However, instead of imposing your own values, teach them how to escape scripting, the Drama Triangle and their cognitive distortions. Teach them how to interview dream characters and the personifications of their life issues so that they can access and be directed by their own life compass, not yours.
Third, be empathetic. Treating others in ways you would not want to be treated does not necessarily require empathy; a deeper level of morality, one that takes the perspectives of others into account, does.
Fourth, act. Speak up. Speak out. Take a stand. Make your routine, daily actions statements of your values. You do this most powerfully when you treat every purchase and discussion as a political act. This means economic exchange and communication are important expressions of your personal power.
Fifth, express yourself politically through your actions not to gain power to yourself, but to give more power to and for others. It is by giving your own power and wealth away that you become powerful and wealthy.
Sixth, Cultivate humility. You are the beneficiary of great gifts. Act like you know it.
Seventh, hold Integralists and “spiritual elites” accountable. They think they know more. Maybe they think they are “better.” In either case, they have a greater responsibility for their communities and the planet than others. Challenge them to take that responsibility seriously.
- Maybe there is indeed a child lurking in all of us: in fact I’m sure of it. I for one am capable of behaving in thoroughly childish ways at times and I know I’m not alone. However, I suspect this is often not because we necessarily carry a fully formed psychic child about with us like a live echo of our past, but rather because we have never properly grown up in the first place. This may be no bad thing: children can have a lot of fun. However, they are clearly ill equipped to cope with every aspect of life in an adult’s world. Perhaps that’s the real source of our fascination with our inner child. It’s not just that we want to believe that all aspects of who we are continue to exist and that nothing is ever truly lost. It’s that we all secretly would like to turn the clock back to a time when we had fewer responsibilities and anything still seemed possible.
Stephen Briers, Psychobabble, 2012
- I am born physically by a generation which is a carrying on of its unbroken history; the body, life, physical mentality of all past being prolongs itself in me and I must therefore undergo the law of heredity; the parent, says the Upanishad, recreates himself by the energy in his seed and is reborn in the child. But as soon as I begin to develop, a new, an independent and overbearing factor comes in, which is not my parents nor my ancestry, nor past mankind, but I, my own self. And this is the really important, crowning, central factor. What matters most in my life, is not my heredity; that only gives me my opportunity or my obstacle, my good or my bad material, and it has not by any means been shown that I draw all from that source. What matters supremely is what I make of my heredity and not what my heredity makes of me. The past of the world, bygone humanity, my ancestors are there in me; but still I myself am the artist of my self, my life, my actions. And there is the present of the world, of humanity, there are my contemporaries as well as my ancestors; the life of my environment too enters into me, offers me a new material, shapes me by its influence, lays its direct or its indirect touch on my being. I am invaded, changed, partly recreated by the environing being and action in which I am and act. But here again the individual comes in subtly and centrally as the decisive power. What is supremely important is what I make of all this surrounding and invading present and not what it makes of me. And in the interaction of individual and general Karma in which others are causes and produce an effect in my existence and I am a cause and produce an effect on them, I live for others, whether I would have it so or no, and others live for me and for all. Still the central power of my psychology takes its colour from this seeing that I live for my self, and for others or for the world only as an extension of my self, as a thing with which I am bound up in some kind of oneness. I seem to be a soul, self or spirit who constantly with the assistance of all create out of my past and present my future being and myself too help in the surrounding creative evolution.

- Since men must now hold for dear life onto the self-transcending meanings of the society in which they live, onto the immortality symbols which guarentee them indefinite duration of some kind, a new kind of instability and anxiety are created. And this anxiety is precisely what spills over into the affairs of men. In seeking to avoid evil, man is responsible for bringing more evil into the world than organisms could ever do merely by excercising their digestive tracts.

- I get so tired of hearing people say that there should be white feminism vs black feminism, etc. Feminism means that you uphold those around you as being worth no less or greater than yourself. That goes for viewpoints and life experiences as well. So it should not be white women's lib, or brown women's lib, or black women's lib or red women's lib or yellow women's lib: it is caring about the welfare and rights of fellow human beings. That means i care about my sisters and my brothers of all races and that the work of Spirit in service to humanity will not be done until those of all races listen to the tears, pain and witness in the survival of thousands both like themselves and very different from themselves [...] over the path of history, taking inspiration from their experiences with a warrior's compassionate heart. The warrior is not afraid to act. The compassionate heart provides insight and discernment. Both are needed in this place in time, but can only make the changes our world needs if we see the other person's challenges as our own. I do not need to be hungry to care that my sister is starving. I do not need to be silenced to know that I must speak out for my brothers who can not. I do not need to be denied my rights to fight for those who have none. When the finger of one hand is hurting, the whole body knows it....and so it must be with humanity if we are to survive ourselves and turn the energy spent on these pointless bigotries towards the productive potential our species has to thrive. This is not the end of an era, it is the continuation of social and spiritual evolution in our world...only now we can be self aware enough as a species to hold ourselves accountable for the world we are creating together.

- The Moon 満月
Before human beings possessed fire or tools or language, the moon had been their ally. It would calm people’s fears now and then by illuminating the dark world like a heavenly lantern. Its waxing and waning gave people an understanding of the concept of time. Even now, when darkness had been banished from most parts of the world, there remained a sense of human gratitude toward the moon and its unconditional compassion. It was imprinted upon human genes like a warm collective memory. Haruki Murakami (*1949) Japanese writer, 1Q84

So what is this 144,000? Who are they? I don’t actually think there’s a single answer to this but I do believe I’ve found one of them. Since the Bible, and the book of the Unveiling especially, speaks in symbol and allegory it’s only fair to say there are many possibilities to it’s real meaning. I’d say that the orthodox “understanding” of the book is the one that’s most incorrect. We’ll get into more of that later. So let’s get to it. Most folks have heard of Chakras. If you haven’t, I strongly encourage you to do some homework. They’re basically where the universal life force energy plugs into your body. Whirling vortices of energy at specific vibrations are channeled into your vital systems via these nerve centers. When there’s a blockage, disease manifests. It’s really fascinating stuff. Anyway, these energy centers are represented by different stages of the lotus flower, which is itself a symbol of purity of the body. Here are the chakras and their corresponding lotus blossoms: Making reference to the 144000 sealed men whose speaks in the Revelation (Apocalypse), this number is that of the election, 12, carried to its paroxysm: 12 x 12 x 1000, where 1000 is a coefficient of the immensity. In others words, this number indicates that all the elects, without exception, are kept under the protection of God. Bible Number of sealed or elected of all the tribes of Israel, marked of the seal of God. (Rv 7,1) General The 144000 petals of the main chakra or coronal (located to the summit of the cranium) represent the 144000 rays of light originated from all the seven chakras, or centers of energy of the body, deployed and balanced, or again the 144000 vibrations of the divine Creation which travel in the cosmos and that are source of life. In the Gospel of Barnabe, chapter 17, it is written: "144000 prophets that God sent to the world, have spoken obscurely; but after me will come the splendor of all prophets and saint; he will illuminate the darkness of whole what have told the prophets, because it is the messenger of God". Some have seen in this passage an allusion to Muhammad, "The Seal of prophets" (Koran XXX, 40). When we add the number of petals of the five inferior psychic centers, we obtain a total of 48 petals. By adding 96 petals of the frontal center (the place of the third eye where the small number must receive its divine mark), we obtain the number 144, symbol of the perfect and expressed spiritual work, that is to say of the marriage between the soul and the personality. If now we multiply 144 by the thousand petals of the coronal center, we obtain 144000, the number of the elects, who will be all these that will have waked up in them the seven stars or spiritual and psychic centers. John Phaure advances two mathematics divisions which, according to him, are very revealing. As numbers he uses the 144000 servants of God "marked to the front", the number of the Beast, 666 and 216, a fundamental cyclic and cabalistic number (tenth of the one Era: 2160 / 10) that he interprets as one of figures of the Christ: 144 000 / 216 = 666 with a rest of 144 144 000 / 666 = 216 with a rest of 144 These results express according to him that the 144000 "marked" as servants of God before the advent the Antichrist are here the object of the eschatologic combat between the Christ and his Adversary. From this combat leaves "the rest": 144, those who will be the Elects of the celestial Jerusalem". He points out moreover than 666 + 144 = 810, numerical value of the Greek word Parakletos, the Paraclete. Thus the Holy Spirit espressed at the end of time "will be the 'glorificater' of the Creation". By using the pyramidal inch, the external volume of the tomb of the Room of the King in the Great Pyramid gives 144000 cubic inches. The pyramidal inch measures 25.303 mm. By using this unit of measure, the pyramid would have a height of 5800 inches and a volume of 160 billion cubic inches, giving all numbers without decimal. The external recovery of the Great Pyramid would be made of 144000 stones. Occurrence The number 144000 is used 3 times in the Bible.

Self transcendence is a term probably fixed by Erich Jantsch.
Hegel speaks in "Phänomenologie des Geistes" about negate and preserve (Negieren und Aufbewahren) .
Gebser calls the same act "das Wahren" , hard to translate. I think he also refers to Hegel. In fact, this seems to be the principle of dialectics.
Roberto Assagioli: “To avoid misunderstanding, however, it should be pointed out here that these ever wider spheres of spiritual life do not cancel or exclude the preceding ones, indeed they assume them. It is only by progressive stages that man is able to recognise and realise the various forms of spirituality” Transpersonal Development p.197
The specific phrase "transcend and include" is a loose translation of Hegel's key term Aufhebung - the moment of dialectical synthesis in the development to a higher stage, which means to both "negate and preserve"... Contemporary readings of Hegel show that it's precisely this Aufhebung (negate and preserve) that always fails, that every identity is shot through with antagonism, all the way down... and that its the impossibility of this "higher synthesis" (transcend and include) - this ontological antagonism in Being itself - that actually keeps the future open and makes the emergence of new forms and structures possible. Basically, there is no original integrated unity underlying the evolutionary process.
in terms of Piaget, he spoke of assimilation and accommodation as well as, I believe, differentiation and integration (Kegan speaks of diff & int, too, as well as "making subject object," which is really the same thing as transcend and include and more accurate--and Kegan is a Piagetian). The precise language of "transcend and include" probably belongs to Wilber, riffing from Hegel and the Piagetians. What is always tricky here, of course, is the confusion of structure and content. Structural shifts (developmental changes in structure of thought) have to build on the old to create the new. This is just obvious. The content that goes along with the structure shifts--like going from God-fearing to scientistic rational materialism--is often where the reactivity and "negation" lies.
Also might help to know that Piaget saw this as an uneven process, with what he called, horizontal and vertical decalage--a lack of uniformity across different domains of knowledge or skill.
From a Psychosynthesis perspective transcend and include imply a refinement or purification of the stage transcended. After disidentifying from a stage one needs to go back and let go of the attachments of the former stage.
In order for Spirit to descend all the levels below must be made transparent for the descending fire of Spirit– Ego-centric, ethnocentric and word-centric attachments must go. So the subconscious must be cleansed, healed, harmonized and synthesized - this is what Assagioli calls the path of purification.

- Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. Khalil Gibran (1883-1931) Lebanese US American painter, philosopher, poet, writer
- Human consciousness does not emerge at any depth except through struggling with your shadow. I wish someone had told me that when I was young. It is in facing your conflicts, criticisms, and contradictions that you grow up. You actually need to have some problems, enemies, and faults! You will remain largely unconscious as a human being until issues come into your life that you cannot fix or control and something challenges you at your present level of development, forcing you to expand and deepen. It is in the struggle with our shadow self, with failure, or with wounding, that we break into higher levels of consciousness. I doubt whether there is any other way. People who refine this consciousness to a high spiritual state, who learn to name and live with paradoxes, are the people I would call prophetic speakers. We must refine and develop this gift. Father Richard Rohr O.F.M. (*1943) US American Franciscan friar, enneagram teacher, author, source unknown
An Angel Speaks
O if you knew how your countenance
is changed, when in the midst
of that pure gaze which can unite you with me
Your hold upon yourself is lost
And you turn away.
Just as a landscape in clear light
May suddenly cloud over, do you close
Yourself against me, and I have to wait
And wait in silence, often long.
And if I were like you a human being
The pain of disdained love would kill me.
But since the Father has given me unending patience
I wait for you unshaken
and expectant, whenever it may be you come.
And even this gentle reproach
Take not as reproach—only as a pure message.
Christian Morgenstern? (1871-1914) German translator, poet, writer
- The truth is like a lizard; it leaves the tail in your hand and escapes, knowing that it will soon grow another. Ivan Turgenev, letter to Leo Tolstoy, 1857
- Unser gemeinsames Menschsein wird brutal in Frage gestellt, wenn man die vielfältigen Teilungen in der Welt auf ein einziges, angeblich dominierendes Klassifikationsschema reduziert, sei es der Religion, der Gemeinschaft, der Kultur, der Nation oder der Zivilisation – ein Schema, dem in Sachen Krieg und Frieden jeweils einzigartige Wirkung zugeschrieben wird. Die Aufteilung der Welt nach einem einzigen Kriterium stiftet weit mehr Unfrieden als das Universum der pluralen und mannigfaltigen Kategorien, welche die Welt prägen, in der wir leben. Sie läuft nicht nur der altmodischen Ansicht zuwider, dass "wir Menschen alle ziemlich ähnlich sind" (über die man heutzutage gern – und nicht ganz unbegründet – spottet, weil sie allzu unbedarft ist), sondern auch der seltener erwähnten, aber sehr viel plausibleren Auffassung, daß wir auf mannigfaltige Weise verschieden sind. Die Hoffnung auf Eintracht in der heutigen Welt beruht in hohem Maße auf einem klareren Verständnis der Vielzahl unserer menschlichen Identitäten und der Einsicht, daß diese sich überschneiden und damit einer scharfen Abgrenzung nach einem einzigen unüberwindlichen Einteilungskriterium entgegenwirken. Amartya Sen, Die Identitätsfalle. Warum es keinen Krieg der Kulturen gibt
- How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! ... For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. ... I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High. Isaiah 14:12–14
- The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others. Albert Schweitzer unsourced
- "Cults" are manipulative, self-serving organizations which harm their hapless recruits. Herbert L. Rosedale (†2004) foremost US American anti-cult activist, director of the AFF (renamed ICSA)
- Pairs of opposites have a natural tendency to meet on the middle line, but the middle line is never a compromise thought out by the intellect and forced upon the fighting parties.
It is rather a result of the conflict one has to suffer. Such conflicts are never solved by a clever trick or by an intelligent invention but by enduring them. As a matter of fact, you have to heat up such conflicts until they rage in full swing so that the opposites slowly melt together. It is a sort of alchemistic procedure rather than a rational choice and decision. The suffering is an indispensable part of it. Every real solution is only reached by intense suffering. The suffering shows the degree in which we are intolerable to ourselves. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Gerhard Adler, editor, Aniela Jaffe, editor, Letters of C. G. Jung. Volume I, 1906-1950, S. 233-235, Routledge, 17. May 1973
- Your Christ is all light and no darkness, while the Self manifests in two colours, white and black. He cannot be identified with the whol Self, only with its light side.

December 1958, cited in: Morton Kelsey (1917-2001) Episcopal priest, Jungian therapist, counselor, religious writer, Myth, History & Faith.

- The meaning of my existence is that life has addressed a question to me. Or, conversely, I myself am a question which is addressed to the world, and I must communicate my answer, for otherwise I am dependent upon the world’s answer.

- The theologian, the only person besides the psychotherapist to declare himself responsible for the cura animarum, is afraid of having to think psychologically about the objects of his belief.

- My soul [says,] 'Who gives you thoughts and words? Do you make them? Are you not my serf a recipient who lies at my door and picks up my alms?

- The serpent shows the way to hidden things and expresses the introverting libido, which leads man to go beyond the point of safety, and beyond the limits of consciousness, as expressed by the deep crater. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Seminar, S. 102, 1925
- Nothing makes this effect clearer than the serpent. It signifies everything dangerous and everything bad, everything nocturnal and uncanny, which adheres to Logos as well as to Eros, so long as they can work as the dark and unrecognized principles of the unconscious spirit. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Sonu Shamdasani, Indian historian, editor, The Red Book [Liber Novus], S. 365, 205-page illustrated manuscript, Philemon Series, The Philemon Foundation and W.W. Norton & Company, 9. October 2009
- This suggests that Eros does not tend toward the right, the side of consciousness, conscious will and conscious choice, but toward the side of the heart, which is less subject to our conscious will. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Sonu Shamdasani, Indian historian, editor, The Red Book [Liber Novus], S. 366, 205-page illustrated manuscript, Philemon Series, The Philemon Foundation and W.W. Norton & Company, 9. October 2009
- Since the psychological condition of any unconscious content is one of potential reality, characterized by the polar opposites of “being” and “non-being,” it follows that the union of opposites must play a decisive role in the alchemical process. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 12, Para 557
- Without the experience of the opposites there is no experience of wholeness and hence no inner approach to the sacred figures. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 12, Para 24
- All life is bound to individual carriers who realize it, and it is simply inconceivable without them. But every carrier is charged with an individual destiny and destination, and the realization of these alone makes sense of life. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Psychology and Alchemy, S. 222
- The body is the original animal condition; in the body we're all animals and therefore we should have an animal psychology to be able to live in it. ...But, since we have a body, it is indispensable that we also live like an animal, and every time we come up with a new expansion of consciousness, we need to add another link in the chain that binds us to the animal. C.G.Jung Seminars, Nietzsche's Zarathustra
- We cannot tell whether God and the unconscious are two different entities. Both are border-line concepts for transcendental contents. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 11, Para 757
- To live what is right and to let what is false die, that is the art of life.

Norton & Company, 9. October 2009
- While the man who despairs marches towards nothingness, the one who has placed his faith in the archetype follows the tracks of life and lives right into his death.

Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, MDR, S. 306
- Just as evening gives birth to morning, so from the darkness arises a new light, the stella matutina, which is at once the evening and the morning star – Lucifer, the light-bringer. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 13, Para 299
- Whoever speaks in primordial images speaks with a thousand voices; he enthrals and overpowers, while at the same time he lifts the idea he is seeking to express out of the occasional and the transitory into the realm of the ever-enduring. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 13, Para 129

Alchemy - hermes Feinstofflichkeit
- The coniunctio in alchemy is a union of the masculine and feminine, of the spiritual and material principles, from which a perfect body arises, the glorified body after the Last Judgement, the resurrection body. […] This means an eternal body, or the subtle body, which is designated in alchemy as the philosopher's stone, the lapis aethereus or invisibilis. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, ETH Lectures, Page 159.

- Life behaves as if it were going on, and so I think it is better for an old person to live on, to look forward to the next day, as if he had to spend centuries, and then he lives properly. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, C.G. Jung Speaking, S. 438
- One needs death to be able to harvest the fruit. Without death, life would be meaningless, since the long-lasting rises again and denies its own meaning. To be, and to enjoy your being, you need death, and limitation enables you to fulfill your being. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Sonu Shamdasani, Indian historian, editor, The Red Book [Liber Novus], S. 267, 205-page illustrated manuscript, Philemon Series, The Philemon Foundation and W.W. Norton & Company, 9. October 2009
- But there is something which can be proved from everyday experience, not body becoming spirit, but body becoming conscious, man becomes conscious of his body. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, ETH Lecture 26 Jan 1940
- Soul and body are not two things. They are one. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 355
- Were it not for the leaping and twinkling of the soul, man would rot away in his greatest passion, idleness. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 9ii, S. 26-27
- If you contemplate the body from the point of view of the psyche, you will be able to locate a mental sphere of consciousness in the head, another centre of consciousness in the heart and one in the abdomen. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, ETH Lecture 26 Jan 1940
- We must have a psychic image of the body, in order to become conscious of it, we must translate the physical fact of the body into a psychic experience. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, ETH Lecture IX, Page 221
- The materialistic premise is that the physical process causally determines the psychic process. The spiritualistic premise is the reverse of this.

- Switch off your noisy consciousness and listen quietly inwards and look at the images that appear before your inner eye, or hearken to the words which the muscles of your speech apparatus are trying to form.

Volume I, 1906-1950, S. 82, Routledge, 17. May 1973
- Assimilation of the shadow gives a man body, so to speak; the animal sphere of instinct, as well as the primitive or archaic psyche, emerge into the zone of consciousness and can no longer be repressed by fictions and illusions. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 16, Para 452
- The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 15, Para 157
- Thus, just as the one-sidedness of the individual’s conscious attitude is corrected by reactions from the unconscious, so art represents a process of self-regulation in the life of nations and epochs. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 15, Para 131
- All the difficulties you overcome in such a fantasy are symbolic expressions of psychological difficulties in yourself, and inasmuch as you overcome them in your imagination you also overcome them in your psyche.

Volume I, 1906-1950, S. 109, Routledge, 17. May 1973

Norton & Company, 9. October 2009
- I saw how we live toward death, how the swaying golden wheat sinks together under the scythe of the reaper, like a smooth wave on the sea-beach. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Sonu Shamdasani, Indian historian, editor, The Red Book [Liber Novus], S. 268, 205-page illustrated manuscript, Philemon Series, The Philemon Foundation and W.W.

Norton & Company, 9. October 2009
- I am indeed convinced that creative imagination is the only primordial phenomenon accessible to us, the real Ground of the psyche, the only immediate reality.

Volume I, 1906-1950, S. 60, Routledge, 17. May 1973

- Events signify nothing, they signify only in us. We create the meaning of events. The meaning is and always was artificial. We make it.

Volume I, 1906-1950, S. 283, Routledge, 17. May 1973
- Far from being a material world, this is a psychic world, which allows us to make only indirect and hypothetical inferences about the real nature of matter. The psychic alone has immediate reality, and this includes all forms of the psychic, even the 'unreal' ideas and thoughts which refer to nothing 'external'. We may call them 'imagination' or 'delusion,' but that does detract in any way from their effectiveness. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW, 81, Para 74
- The Earth element is 'She who causes fall';
the water element is 'She who kills';
the fire element 'She who summons';
the air element 'The Lady of Dances',
and the ether element is 'She who has the net of Lotuses'.
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, ETH Lecture, 20 Jan. 1959
- Thus, the alchemical process also begins with such a division into the four elements, by which the body is put back into its primordial state and so can undergo transformation. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Children’s Dreams, S. 367
A Sense of Cosmos, Jacob Needleman reminds us, "Whenever we have looked to a part for the sake of understanding the whole, we have eventually found that the part is a living component of the whole.

- The beginning of all things is love,
but the being of things is life.

- You shall love your crooked neighbor with your crooked heart. W.H. Auden
- Whenever we have looked to a part for the sake of understanding the whole, we have eventually found that the part is a living component of the whole.

- Deep down, below the surface of the average man's conscience, he hears a voice whispering, "There is something not right," no matter how much his rightness is supported by public opinion or moral code.

- And just as for the individual a time of dissociation is a time for sickness, so it is in the life of nations. We can hardly deny that ours is a time of dissociation and sickness. […]
[T]he sickness of dissociation in our world is at the same time a process of recovery, or rather, the climax of a period of pregnancy which heralds the throes of birth. A time of dissociation […] is simultaneously an age of rebirth. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Good and Evil in Analytical Psychology CW 10, chapter "Civilization in Transition", paragraphs 290 and 293, 1959

- I cannot prove to you that God exists, but my work has proved empirically that the pattern of God exists in every man and that this pattern in the individual has at its disposal the greatest transforming energies of which life is capable.

- Every transformation demands as its precondition "the ending of a world"-the collapse of an old philosophy of life. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Man and His Symbols.
Carl Jung on "Therapists: Anthology"
As therapists we are subject to the unavoidable destinies of our patients. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Conversations with C.G. Jung, Psychotherapy, S. 113
He [the psychotherapist] is not just working for this particular patient, who may be quite insignificant, but for himself as well and his own soul, and in so doing he is perhaps laying an infinitesimal grain in the scales of humanity’s soul. Small and invisible as this contribution may be, it is yet an opus magnum. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, CW 16, par. 449.
…as a psychotherapist I do not by any means try to deliver my patients from fear. Rather, I lead them to the reason for their fear, and then it becomes clear that it is justified.

- Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on "I am not too sure." H.L. Mencken, Minority Report. H.L. Mencken's Notebooks, S. 418, 1956
- Empires live by numbness.
Empires, in their militarism, expect numbness about the human cost of war.
Corporate economies expect blindness to the cost in terms of poverty and exploitation.
Governments and societies of domination go to great lengths to keep the numbness in tact.

- The most powerful way to initiate deep systemic change and transformation is to introduce and invite people into a new experience of a new way of relating with and being related, which contains and expresses the wholeness, harmony and unity that we all long for and miss in so many of our daily inter-actions and relationship experiences. A love that is deeply restorative, healing, renewing and generative. When we give birth to this possibility from within us and in our relationships, we simultaneously give birth to a new world born of love. This is what creates future and sustains Life.
- Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." Mary Anne Radmacher
- Humility […] is a virtue that is valuable for its own sake, and it is a virtue with great usefulness as well. The modest make fewer mistakes because they are not undone by arrogance, and their lack of dogma is no impediment to change. Like it or not, humility exists only in the wake of arrogance. Few people know humility for itself or opt for it right away. Most of us have fallen into arrogance and egotism and have failed. We come to humility after having thoroughly tested the alternative.
Arrogance and anger are often the choices we try first because they seem to take less effort. True, they are not effective, but they seem easier. By contrast, even after we renounce our arrogance, we will find that being humble is not easy. True humility is a choice we make each time there is a confrontation, and unless a person is supremely comfortable, self-assured, and safe, he or she cannot easily be humble. The dynamically modest person chooses to be humble out of strength. The humility of the Changes [I Ching / Yijing] is an active power. As such, it is more than a moral position: it is a virtue.
Humility is akin to compassion – at least in the sense that true compassion means extending one’s energy and talents on behalf of others. One cannot be merciful from a position of weakness. Stopping short of city gates you could easily storm, carrying someone who is weak, and sheltering a hurt child are all acts of mercy possible only for someone who is strong and capable. In the same way, remaining humble even when you are under great duress, staying self-possessed in the face of insults, and refusing to bully others with your position and power are all examples of humility from the vantage of great strength.
Those who are humble will gradually discover other advantages. They will not hesitate to go beyond themselves. With nothing to prove, they are willing to explore new situations. True, they might make mistakes. They may even suffer embarrassment. But the humble person acknowledges and accepts that. The immodest make mistakes too— but being without shame, they try to hide their errors and deny their fallibility. That worsens their mistakes and increases their isolation.
In time, the arrogant personality becomes brittle and heavy. The tides of each day bring change; the closed person fights the waves. The current ebbs and flows and moves with its rhythm; closed persons throw their limbs against the current. They do not look at the tide; they think only of what they want, even if they are swamped and confused. The humble person accepts whatever change sends, improvising and creating accordingly.
When the humble fight, they usually succeed. They have minimized their own faults, and they have closed all openings to others’ attack. That is the defensive strategy of the humble...Thus, although the normal definition of humility is one of demeanor, this hexagram makes it clear that humility is power. Deng Ming-Dao, The Living I Ching, Hexagram 15
because love is all there is.
There is no way into presence
except through a love exchange.
If someone asks, But what is love?
answer, Dissolving the will.
Be clear like a mirror
Be clean of pictures and the worry
that comes with images.
Gaze into what is not ashamed
or afraid of any truth.
Contain all human faces in your own
without any judgment of them.
Be pure emptiness.
What is inside that? you ask.
Silence is all I can say.
Lovers have some secrets
That they keep.
- He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have. Socrates
- I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections. And it is not because the mechanism is working
wrongly, that I am ill. I am ill because of wounds to the soul, to the deep emotional self and the wounds to the soul take a long, long time, only time can help and patience, and a certain difficult repentance long difficult repentance, realization of life's mistake, and the freeing oneself from the endless repetition of the mistake which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify. D. H. Lawrence, 'Healing'
- The ancient Greeks had two words for time: Chronos, for the idea of time as a planning and measuring device, and Kairos, for the idea of the 'right' or most-opportune moment. Which one do you use for your change planning? Chronos we know well. We use it for project planning and critical path analysis, and it is there every day in our agendas. Chronos works well with our strategic plans and our financial milestones. But Kairos and Chronos don't always get on that well together. Kairos has a habit of popping-in unexpectedly. Not only is it a bit less reliable than chronos, it doesn't hang around too long either. Each Kairos moment comes by only once. Notice it and act without hesitation. Kairos doesn’t bang on your door: you feel its presence. To catch it you need to be close to your intuition, some distance from the issue – and it helps to be a little out of focus.

- Are you willing to be sponged out, erased, cancelled, made nothing? Are you willing to be made nothing? Dipped into oblivion? If not, you will never really change. D. H. Lawrence
- We must build a picture of the human soul that works. Not a romantic vision that nature will take us in her arms and save us from ourselves, but a recognition that the enemy is within us, and that nature has deposited it there. We need to stare directly into nature's bloody face and realize that she has saddled us with evil for a reason. And we must understand that reason to outwit her. For Lucifer is almost everything men like Milton imagined him to be. He is ambitious, an organizer, a force reaching out vigorously to master even the stars of heaven. But he is not a demon separate from nature's benevolence. He is a part of the creative force itself. Lucifer, in fact, is mother nature's alter ego. Howard Bloom, The Lucifer Principle

- Der Geschichte des höhern Menschentums gegenüber aber herrscht ein zügelloser, alle historische und also organische Erfahrung verachtender Optimismus in bezug auf den Gang der Zukunft, so daß jedermann im zufällig Gegenwärtigen die »Ansätze« zu einer ganz besonders hervorragenden linienhaften »Weiterentwicklung« feststellt, nicht weil sie wissenschaftlich bewiesen ist, sondern weil er sie wünscht. Hier wird mit schrankenlosen Möglichkeiten –nie mit einem natürlichen Ende –gerechnet und aus der Lage jedes Augenblicks heraus eine völlig naive Konstruktion der Fortsetzung entworfen. Aber »die Menschheit« hat kein Ziel, keine Idee, keinen Plan, so wenig wie die Gattung der Schmetterlinge oder der Orchideen ein Ziel hat. Oswald Spengler, Der Untergang des Abendlandes
- I like to walk alone on country paths, rice plants and wild grasses on both sides, putting each foot down on the earth in mindfulness, knowing that I walk on the wondrous earth. In such moments, existence is a miraculous and mysterious reality. People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is to walk on earth ... a miracle we don’t even recognize. Thich Nhat Hanh
- I believe that magic is art, and that art, whether that be music, writing, sculpture, or any other form, is literally magic. Art is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words or images, to achieve changes in consciousness ... Indeed to cast a spell is simply to spell, to manipulate words, to change people's consciousness, and this is why I believe that an artist or a writer is the closest thing in the contemporary world to the shaman. Alan Moore (*1953) English writer of graphic novels
- Reichtum, Ansehen, alles kann man verlieren, aber das Glück im eigenen Herzen kann nur verschleiert werden und wird immer, so lange, wie du lebst, dich wieder glücklich machen. Versuche auch mal, wenn du allein und unglücklich oder traurig bist, auf dem Oberboden bei so einem schönen Wetter nach draußen zu schauen. Nicht zu den Häusern und Dächern, sondern zum Himmel. Solange du furchtlos den Himmel anschauen kannst, so lange weißt du, dass du rein von innen bist und dass du doch wieder glücklich werden kannst. Anne Frank, Tagebucheintrag, A-Version, 23. Februar 1944
- When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground. African proverb
- There is no way around confronting yourself, your unconscious, your fears, your doubts. I myself haven’t found any magical way around this.
- We each have to confront ourselves.
- We cannot simply practice a spiritual technique like meditation or prayer, have some deep experience, and expect it to totally transform us.
- The experience, regardless of how profound, simply cannot erase all the false influences on your consciousness.
- If we thoroughly investigate the matter for ourselves, we see that we have to confront ourselves in very powerful and deep ways.

- An ocean of electric Energy
Formlessly formed its strange wave-particles
Constructing by their dance this solid scheme,
Its mightiness in the atom shut to rest;
Masses were forged or feigned and visible shapes;
Light flung the photon’s swift revealing spark
And showed, in the minuteness of its flash
Imaged, this cosmos of apparent things.
Thus has been made this real impossible world,
An obvious miracle or convincing show.
Sri Aurobindo, Savitri, Book II, Canto 5
- Keep very quiet and watch what comes to the surface of the mind. Reject the known, welcome the so-far unknown, and reject it in its turn. Thus you come to state in which there is no knowledge, only being, in which being itself is knowledge. To know by being is direct knowledge. It is based on identity of the seer and seen. Indirect knowledge is based on sensation and memory, on proximity of the perceiver and his percept. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

- How we feel about ourselves, whether we respect ourselves, determines the quality of our life, our capacity to succeed in work, relationships, healing, and intuitive skills.
Self-understanding and acceptance, the bond we form with ourselves, is in many ways the most crucial spiritual challenge we face. In truth, if we don't like ourselves [not in a narcissistic way, but healthy self-love, as in wholeness, the "dark" and "light"], we will be incapable of making healthy decisions.
Instead, we will direct all of our personal power for decision-making into the hands of someone else: someone we want to impress, or someone before whom we think we must weaken ourselves to gain physical security [authoritarian followers]. People who have low self-esteem attract relationships and occupational situations that reflect and reinforce this weakness.
The stronger our spirits become [embodiment], the less authority "linear time" can exercise in our lives [and the more we get in touch with our intuition and inner guidance in the present moment].
Intuition is neither the ability to engage prophesy nor a means of avoiding financial loss or painful relationships. It is actually the ability to use energy data to make decisions in the immediate moment. Energy data are the emotional, psychological, and spiritual components of a given situation. They are the "here and now" ingredients of life, not nonphysical information form some "future" place.
But intuitive guidance does not mean following a voice to the Promised Land. It means having the self-esteem that the discomfort and confusion that a person feels is actually directing him to take charge of his life and make choices that will break him out of the stagnation of misery.
If a person suffers from low self-esteem, she cannot act on her intuitive impulses because her fear of failure is too intense. Intuition, like all meditative disciplines, can be enormously effective if, and only if, one has the courage and personal power to follow through on the guidance it provides.
Guidance requires action, but it does not guarantee safety. While we measure our own success in terms of our personal comfort and security, the "universe" measures our success by how much we have learned.
So long as we use comfort and security as our criteria for success, we will fear our own intuitive guidance because by its very nature it directs us into new cycles of learning that are sometimes uncomfortable.
In developing your skill [of intuition] in your own life, you must trust your gut responses - a fact I cannot emphasize enough. Caroline Myss

Master tonic – Recipe
You may want to wear gloves during the preparation, especially when handling hot peppers, because it is difficult to get the tingling off your hands! Be careful, its smell is very strong, and it may stimulate the sinuses instantly.
24 oz /700 ml apple cider vinegar (always use organic)
¼ cup finely chopped garlic
¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 fresh peppers, the hottest you can find (be careful with the cleaning – wear gloves!!!)
¼ cup grated ginger
2 tbsp grated horseradish
2 tbsp turmeric powder or 2 pieces of turmeric root
1 tbsp gemahlenen Kreuzkümmel / Schwarzkümmel (freiwillige Zutat)
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, except for the vinegar.
Transfer the mixture to a Mason jar.
Pour in some apple cider vinegar and fill it to the top. It is best if 2/3 of the jar consist of dry ingredients, and fill in the rest with vinegar.
Close well and shake.
Keep the jar in a cool and dry place for 2 weeks. Shake well several times a day.
After 14 days, squeeze well and strain the liquid through a plastic strain. For better results put a gauze over it. Squeeze well so the whole juice comes out.
Use the rest of the dry mixture when cooking.
Your master tonic is ready for use. You do not need to keep the tonic in your fridge. It will last for long.
Extra Tip: You can also use it in the kitchen – mix it with some olive oil and use it as a salad dressing or in your stews.
Caution: The flavor is very strong and hot!
Extra Tip: Eat a slice of orange, lemon or lime after you take the tonic to ease the burning sensation and heat.
Gargle and swallow.
Do not dilute it in water as it will reduce the effect.
Take 1 tablespoon every day to strengthen the immune system and fight cold.
Increase the amount every day until you reach a dose of 1 small glass per day (the size of a liquor glass).
If you struggle against more serious disease or infection, take 1 tablespoon of the tonic 5-6 times a day.
It is safe for pregnant women and children (use small doses!) because the ingredients are all-natural and contain no toxins.

- Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. Otto H. Warburg, discoverer of ozone therapy
- Was keiner wagt, das sollt ihr wagen,
Was keiner sagt, das sollt ihr sagen,
Was keiner denkt, das wagt zu denken,
Was keiner anfängt, das führt aus.
Wenn keiner ja sagt, sollt ihr´s sagen,
Wenn keiner nein sagt, sagt doch nein.
Wenn alle zweifeln, wagt zu glauben,
Wenn alle mittun, steht allein.
Wo alle loben, habt Bedenken,
Wo alle spotten, spottet nicht,
Wo alle geizen, wagt zu schenken,
Wo alles dunkel ist, macht Licht.
Mach(t) mich zum Werkzeug Eures Friedens:
Dass ich Liebe bringe, wo man sich hasst
Dass ich Versöhnung bringe, wo man einander kränkt
Dass ich Einigkeit bringe, wo Zwietracht ist
Dass ich Glauben bringe, wo Zweifel quält
Dass ich Wahrheit bringe, wo Irrtum herrscht
Dass ich die Hoffnung bringe, wo Verzweiflung droht
Dass ich Freude bringe, wo Traurigkeit trübt
Dass ich das Licht bringe, wo Finsternis waltet
Hilf, dass ich nicht verlange,
getröstet zu werden, sondern zu trösten,
verstanden zu werden, sondern zu verstehen,
geliebt zu werden, statt zu lieben,
(gehelt zu werden, sondern zu heilen.)
Denn: Wer gibt, der empfängt
Wer verzeiht, dem wird verziehen
Wer stirbt, der wird zum ewigen Leben geboren. Amen.
Franz von Assisi (1182-1226)

The psychiatrist George Eman Vaillant introduced a four-level classification of defence mechanisms:
Level I - pathological defences (psychotic denial, delusional projection)
Level II - immature defences (fantasy, projection, passive aggression, acting out)
Level III - neurotic defences (intellectualization, reaction formation, dissociation, displacement, repression)
Level IV - mature defences (humour, sublimation, suppression, altruism, anticipation)
Selection from Level 1 Pathological Defenses:
Delusional projection: Delusions about external reality, usually of a persecutory nature.
Splitting: A primitive defence. Both harmful and helpful impulses are split off and unintegrated, frequently projected onto someone else. The defended individual segregates experiences into all-good and all-bad categories, with no room for ambiguity and ambivalence. When "splitting" is combined with "projecting", the undesirable qualities that one unconsciously perceives oneself as possessing, one consciously attributes to another.
From Level 2 Immature Defenses:
Fantasy: Tendency to retreat into fantasy in order to resolve inner and outer conflicts.
Idealization: Tending to perceive another individual as having more desirable qualities than he or she may actually have.
Somatization: The transformation of uncomfortable feelings towards others into uncomfortable feelings toward oneself: pain, illness, and anxiety.
Wishful thinking: Making decisions according to what might be pleasing to imagine instead of by appealing to evidence, rationality, or reality.
From Level 3 Neurotic Defenses:
Intellectualization: A form of isolation; concentrating on the intellectual components of a situation so as to distance oneself from the associated anxiety-provoking emotions; separation of emotion from ideas; thinking about wishes in formal, affectively bland terms and not acting on them; avoiding unacceptable emotions by focusing on the intellectual aspects
Reaction formation: Converting unconscious wishes or impulses that are perceived to be dangerous or unacceptable into their opposites; behaviour that is completely the opposite of what one really wants or feels; taking the opposite belief because the true belief causes anxiety.
From Level 4 Mature Defenses:
Acceptance: A person's assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a difficult or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest, or exit. Religions and psychological treatments often suggest the path of acceptance when a situation is both disliked and unchangeable, or when change may be possible only at great cost or risk.
Forgiveness: Cessation of resentment, indignation or anger as a result of a perceived offence, disagreement, or mistake, or ceasing to demand retribution or restitution.
Humility: A mechanism by which a person, considering their own defects, has a humble self-opinion. Humility is intelligent self-respect which keeps one from thinking too highly or too meanly of oneself.
Humour: Overt expression of ideas and feelings (especially those that are unpleasant to focus on or too terrible to talk about directly) that gives pleasure to others. The thoughts retain a portion of their innate distress, but they are "skirted around" by witticism, for example self-deprecation.
Mindfulness: Adopting a particular orientation toward one’s experiences in the present moment, an orientation that is characterised by curiosity, openness, and acceptance.

A common defense to people trying sidetrack investigations into potential conspiracies is to say that "someone would have spilled the beans" if there were really a conspiracy.
But famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg explains:
- It is a commonplace that "you can't keep secrets in Washington" or "in a democracy, no matter how sensitive the secret, you’re likely to read it the next day in the The New York Times." These truisms are flatly false. They are in fact cover stories, ways of flattering and misleading journalists and their readers, part of the process of keeping secrets well. Of course eventually many secrets do get out that wouldn’t in a fully totalitarian society. But the fact is that the overwhelming majority of secrets do not leak to the American public. This is true even when the information withheld is well known to an enemy and when it is clearly essential to the functioning of the congressional war power and to any democratic control of foreign policy. The reality unknown to the public and to most members of Congress and the press is that secrets that would be of the greatest import to many of them can be kept from them reliably for decades by the executive branch, even though they are known to thousands of insiders.

- There must be a revolution in our hearts, in our minds, i our souls, to respct the dignity and worth of all humankind. If we're going to build a sense of community in this nation //The United States//, we have to include everybody. We've got to live together like brothers and sisters. During the early days of the civil rights movement, we talkesd about a 'coalition of conscience.'

An NDE Life Review from the 1850s
"[T]ravelling backwards, every incident of my past life seemed to me to glance across my recollection in retrograde progression; not, however, in mere outline as here stated, but the picture filled up, with every minute and collateral feature; in short, the whole period of my existence seemed to be placed before me in some kind of panoramic review, and each act of it seemed to be accompanied by a consciousness of right or wrong, or by some reflection of its cause or consequence – indeed, many trifling events, which had long been forgotten, then crowded by imagination, and with the character of recent familiarity"
Second Life Review, this one recorded by Raymond Moody, 130 years later:
"It seemed like this flashback, or memory, or whatever was directed primarily at ascertaining the extent of my life. It was like there was a judgement being made and then, all of a sudden, the light became dimmer, and there was a conversation, not in words but in thoughts. When I would see something, when I would experience a past event, it was like I was seeing it through eyes with (I guess I could say) omnipotent knowledge, guiding me, and helping me to see. That’s the part that stuck with me, because it showed me not only what I had done but even how what I had done had affected other people. And it wasn’t like I was looking at a movie projector because I could feel these things; there was feeling…I found that that not even your thoughts are lost…Every thought was there.

- You must not fear, hold back, count or be a miser with your thoughts and feelings. It is also true that creation comes from an overflow, so you have to learn to intake, to imbibe, to nourish yourself and not be afraid of fullness. The fullness is like a tidal wave which then carries you, sweeps you into experience and into writing. Permit yourself to flow and overflow, allow for the rise in temperature, all the expansions and intensifications. Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them ... you move in a world of mysteries. But both must be ruled by faith. Anais Nin, The Diary of Anais Nin, Vol. 4, 1944-1947

Sexualität - STD
- The openness and surrender during sexual intercourse can allow the exchange of attached entities between two people. The thoughts, desires and behaviors of an attached entity are experienced as the person's own thoughts, desires and behaviors. The thoughts, feelings, habits and desires do not seem foreign if they have been present for a long time, even from childhood. This is a major factor in the widespread denial of the concept and lack of acceptance of the phenomena of discarnate interference and spirit attachment, obsession or possession.

- Ich will unter keinen Umständen ein Allerweltsmensch sein. Ich habe ein Recht darauf, aus dem Rahmen zu fallen – wenn ich es kann. Ich wünsche mir Chancen, nicht Sicherheiten. Ich will kein ausgehaltener Bürger sein, gedemütigt und abgestumpft, weil der Staat für mich sorgt. Ich will dem Risiko begegnen, mich nach etwas sehnen und es verwirklichen, Schiffbruch erleiden und Erfolg haben. Ich lehne es ab, mir den eignen Antrieb mit einem Trinkgeld abkaufen zu lassen. Lieber will ich den Schwierigkeiten des Lebens entgegentreten, als ein gesichertes Dasein führen; lieber die gespannte Erregung des eigenen Erfolgs als die dumpfe Ruhe Utopiens. Ich will weder meine Freiheit gegen Wohltaten hergeben noch meine Menschenwürde gegen milde Gaben. Ich habe gelernt, selbst für mich zu denken und zu handeln, der Welt gerade ins Gesicht zu sehen und zu bekennen: dies ist mein Werk. Das alles ist gemeint, wenn ich sage: Ich bin ein freier Mensch.
