- Die ersten Menschen waren nicht die letzten Affen. Erich Kästner
- Geh deinen Weg und lass die Leute reden! Dante Alighieri

- Der Trend ins Vegetarische ist unaufhaltsam. Vielleicht isst in 100 Jahren kein Mensch mehr Fleisch. Helmut Maucher, ehemaliger Generaldirektor von Nestlé
- Mentoring is an archetypal activity that has timeless elements which can connect us to the universal ground where nature renews itself and culture becomes reimagined. Just as the original mentor and the troubled youth meet at the edge of the realm, elders and youth are each on the edge of life. Youth and elder meet where the pressure of the future meets the presence of the past. Old and young are opposites that secretly identify with each other; for neither fits well into the mainstream of life. It is the dynamic meeting of opposites that draws the goddess of wisdom to the troubled ground of the earth. Michael Meade, The Genius Myth
- Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. Khalil Gibran
- Unity is plural, and at minimum, two. Bucky Fuller
- 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. Richard Rohr
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 (h/t Monique Sanchíz de Mihalitsianos)
- 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

- Denn wenn man nicht sagen kann, dass man nicht meint, was man sagt, weil man dann nicht wissen kann, dass andere nicht wissen können, was gemeint ist, wenn man sagt, dass man nicht meint, was man sagt, kann man auch nicht sagen, dass man meint, was man sagt, weil dies dann entweder eine überflüssige und verdächtige Verdopplung ist oder die Negation einer ohnehin inkommunikablen Negation.

- 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.

- 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

- "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)
- A very large portion of the human race does not believe in God and suffers no visible punishment in consequence. And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that he would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt his existence. ⚡ Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) British philosopher, social critic, logician, mathematician, historian, social reformist, "pacifist", member of the Royal Society and MI5, Nobel laureate in literature, 1950, Bertrand Russell's Best. Silhouettes in Satire, headline "On Religion", 1958
- Suppose, for instance, that the problem of hysteria is more akin to the problem of a person speaking a foreign tongue than it is to that of a person having a bodily disease.
We are accustomed to believe that diseases have "causes," "treatments," and "cures." If, however, a person speaks a language other than our own, we do not usually look for the "cause" of this peculiar linguistic behavior.
It would be foolish--and of course, fruitless-- to concern ourselves with the "etiology" of speaking French.
Thomas S. Szasz, MD, The Myth of Mental Illness, S. 11, 1961
- An old Celtic proverb boldly places death right at the center of life. ‘Death is the middle of a long life,’ they used to say. Ancient people did things like that; they put death at the center instead of casting it out of sight and leaving such an important subject until the last possible moment. Of course, they lived close to nature and couldn’t help but see how the forest grew from fallen trees and how death seemed to replenish life from fallen members. Only the unwise and the overly fearful think that death is the blind enemy of life. Michael Meade, Facebook comment, 12. March 2017
- 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.
~ C.G. Jung
- 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. Jung, Civilization in Transition, CW 10, paragraphs 290 and 293
- We will become our opposite if we do not learn to accomodate the opposition within us. Carl Jung
Carl Jung, essay Marriage as a Psychological Relationship, 1925
- 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. Find this pattern in your own individual self and life is transformed. Carl Jung
- Every transformation demands as its precondition "the ending of a world"-the collapse of an old philosophy of life. C.G. Jung, Man and His Symbols.
Carl Jung on "Therapists: Anthology"
As therapists we are subject to the unavoidable destinies of our patients. ~Carl Jung; Conversations with C.G. Jung, Psychotherapy, Page 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 Jung, 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. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Pages 398-400.
The psychotherapist must be a philosopher in the old sense of the word. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Pages 455-456.
- It is tremendously important that people should be able to accept themselves; otherwise the will of God cannot be lived. Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 391
- 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.
Walter Brueggemann, The Prophetic Imagination

- Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free. Jalaluddin Rumi
- Truth was a mirror in the hands of God
It fell, and broke into pieces.
Everybody took a piece of it,
and they looked at it and thought they had the truth. Jalal ad-Din Muḥammad Rumi [LoC 550] (1207-1273) Persian Muslim Sufi mystic, jurist, theologian, poet
- Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes.Because for those who love with heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation. Jalal ad-Din Muḥammad Rumi [LoC 550] (1207-1273) Persian Muslim Sufi mystic, jurist, theologian, poet
- Woman is the radiance of God; she is not your beloved. She is the Creator—you could say that she is not created. – Rumi
- Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. – Rumi

- There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice, that does not live by secrecy.

- It takes a whole village to raise a child. Igbo and Yoruba (Nigeria) Proverb
- 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.
- Research and clinical experience also tell us that marriage and committed love relationships are more important to the health and wellbeing of men than women. Divorced men do not work as well or live as long or "survive" with anything like the quality of life enjoyed by married men. They are at considerably higher risk of alcoholism, suicide, physical and mental illness, unemployment, car crashes, and other accidents. They lose contact with friends, stop going to church or social groups, and eventually isolate themselves completely, except for whatever company they can find in a bar. In short, they lose meaning and purpose. Without a partner, men just go through the motions of living.

- 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
- Don't bend;
don't water it down;
don't try to make it logical;
don't edit your own soul according to the fashion.
Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
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. Jan Jacob Stam, The Winds of Change,
- Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy. Wendell Berry
- Mapping technology has matured into a tool for social justice. The Economist, 4 June 2009

2. Nowadays, everybody can access huge data from the public domain and combine these with maps.
3. Citizen maps are created through voluntarily worldwide effort and participation, are freely available and offer new ways for transparency.
- Discourse about God is unique and cannot be compared to any other human language. It is irreducible to any other discourse. Raimon Panikkar (1918-2010) Catalan Spanish Roman Catholic priest, scholar, proponent of inter-religious dialogue, The Experience of God: Icons of the Mystery, ?
- We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing' - R. D. Laing, Scottish psychiatrist
- Those who have changed the universe have never done it by changing officials, but always by inspiring the people' - Napoleon Bonaparte
- It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change' - Charles Darwin
- 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
- You cannot buy the revolution. You cannot make the revolution. You can only be the revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere. Ursula Le Guin, The Dispossessed.
- And we who embody the local eyes and ears and thoughts and feelings of the cosmos we've begun, at last, to wonder about our origins. Star stuff, contemplating the stars organized collections of 10 billion-billion-billion atoms contemplating the evolution of matter tracing that long path by which it arrived at consciousness here on the planet Earth and perhaps, throughout the cosmos.

- The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.

- Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunderstorm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols. Thomas Mann
- 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
- It is the mark of an educated man to look for precision in each class of things just so far as the nature of the subject admits;
it is evidently equally foolish to accept probable reasoning from a mathematician and to demand from a rhetorician scientific proofs. Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, Book I, 1094.b24
- 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.

- The word ―fractal has an interesting appeal, doesn't it? From the moment that I began using that expression for the connection of human beings to each other, there have always been these determined questions as to what it really is. I talk about fractal lines and fractal lines go back to the beginning, because there is no other place to look for as a start. And something to realize about the nature of the fractal is that it is along that fractal that you are always going to have either your deepest receptive or your deepest externalized impact on the other. It‘s something interesting to think about.
And when we are looking at fractals within the context of this knowledge we‘re talking about crystals of consciousness, that the crystals of consciousness are, in fact, the source of how we discover or how we first get to see, in that sense, the development of what a fractal line actually is. Within the cosmology of Human Design there are the originating crystals and the thematic of the shattering of these crystals. It is the shattering that is the real Big Bang in a sense, except the bang isn't because they bang into each other, it's because they separate, which is quite a different thing. Nonetheless, it results in shattering. And it is this shattering of these so-called prime crystals; it is where we first come to grips with the fractal.
What that means literally, and I will show you later as we move along, what it means is that the beings that are wandering around on this plane right now, we're nearly 7 billion of us on Earth, humans anyway, that there are beings that are endowed with crystals that you have a specific connection to along a line of connectivity. And that line of connectivity is caught in the movement in space. And the way in which that connectivity gets to be lived out, in terms of personalizing that, is that first of all it starts with the base. Ra Uru Hu. ebook History of Geometry.

"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

Michael Meade, Facebook comment, ... 2016
- The calling starts when we’re young. The problem is that it’s a soft voice and we often don’t hear it, especially with the chatter around us. But it’s there. So what happens when we get in trouble is it stops the chatter and sometimes that voice gets through. But often it doesn’t get through fully when we’re young and a lot of people live a life not tied to the genius of their own soul. But here’s the valuable thing. This is so important, the awakening of one’s genius, the moving closer to living the life of giftedness and purpose, that the calling keeps calling. And no matter how old a person is or how close they get to the door of exit, the calling keeps calling. A person can awaken at any point along the path of life. Michael Meade, Facebook comment, 17.

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.

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.)

Wer verzeiht, dem wird verziehen

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 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.

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

- Wir leben in einem Zeitalter der Massenverblödung, besonders der medialen Massenverblödung.
Wenn Sie sich einmal anschauen, wie einseitig die hiesigen Medien, von TAZ bis Welt, über die Ereignisse in der Ukraine berichten, dann kann man wirklich von einer Desinformation im großen Stil berichten, flankiert von den technischen Möglichkeiten des digitalen Zeitalters, dann kann man nur feststellen, die Globalisierung hat in der Medienwelt zu einer betrüblichen Provinzialisierung geführt. Ähnliches fand und findet ja bezüglich Syrien und anderen Krisenherden statt. Interview mit Peter Scholl-Latour, Scholl-Latour: "Wir leben in einer Zeit der Massenverblödung", präsentiert von dem deutschen Onlinemagazin Telepolis des Heise Zeitschriften Verlags,

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. Dr. William Baldwin, Spirit Releasement Therapy

- Evolutionary change is not necessarily progressive. The evolution of a species may lead to its extinction, a change which is not progressive, at least not to that species. Francisco J. Ayala, essay The concepts of biological progress
- 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. Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) deutsch-elsässischer Arzt, evangelischer Theologe, medizinischer Missionar, Kulturphilosoph, Humanist, Organist, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1952, Autor

Schatten - Reife
- The ability to hold Light is directly proportional to the courage to see darkness. Choosing to see just one creates distortions and illusions. It amazes me that something so simple and common sense can be so difficult to even discuss with 'spiritual' people who insist on remaining 'positive'. Actually, this avoidance is based on unacknowledged fear that their inner light might be somewhat 'dispersed' by seeing darkness and therefore not giving the light much credit at all. I think there's also fear that they might somehow become 'tainted' or the darkness might 'manifest' in some form in their lives. But the opposite is true; it is the fear, especially unacknowledged, that has much more chance to manifest than darkness exposed to daylight and investigation. Just like we must be fearless about our own inner shadow, we must also be fearless about seeing this huge shadow of humanity. Or we will have the power to transform precisely nothing, within or without. Anis Springate
- The people who say you are not facing reality actually mean that you are not facing their idea of reality. Reality is above all else a variable. With a firm enough commitment, you can sometimes create a reality which did not exist before. wpe:Margaret_Halsey/Margaret Halsey (1910-1997) socially concerned US American writer, No Laughing Matter, ???
