Es ist wichtig, für seine Träume ein paar Kämpfe durchzustehen – nicht als Opfer, sondern als Abenteurer. Paulo Coelho (*1947) brasilianischer esoterischer Schriftsteller, Bestseller-Autor, Handbuch des Kriegers des Lichts, Umschlagtext, Diogenes Verlag, 11. Auflage März 2001

 

Das Auge gibt dir Licht. Wenn deine Augen klar sehen, wirst du dich überall sicher bewegen können. Wenn du nun schlecht siehst, tappst du unsicher herum. Hast du aber Gott aus den Augen verloren, wie schrecklich wird dann deine Finsternis sein!
Matthäus 6, 22-23 (NT)

Und alsobald fiel es von seinen Augen wie Schuppen, und er ward wieder sehend. Apostelgeschichte 9, 18 (NT)

 

Persönliche Bekenntnisse – Hellsichtigkeit

  • Von meiner Kindheit an erfreute ich mich der Gabe dieser Schau in meiner Seele bis zur gegenwärtigen Stunde, da ich schon mehr als 70 Jahre alt bin. Und meine Seele steigt, wie Gott will, in dieser Schau bis in die Höhe des Firmaments und die verschiedenen Sphären empor und hält sich bei verschiedenen Völkern auf, obgleich sie in fernen Gegenden und Orten weit von mir entfernt sind. Und da ich dies auf solche Weise in meiner Seele schaue, erblicke ich auch den Wechsel der Wolken und anderer Geschöpfe. Ich sehe dies aber nicht mit den offenen Augen und höre es nicht mit den äußeren Ohren; auch nehme ich es nicht mit den Gedanken meines Herzens wahr noch durch irgendeine Vermittlung meiner fünf Sinne, vielmehr einzig in meiner Seele, mit offenen Augen, so dass ich niemals die Bewusstlosigkeit einer Ekstase erleide, sondern wachend schaue ich dies bei Tag und Nacht. Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) deutsche Äbtissin des Benediktiner-Ordens, Gelehrte, Heilkundige, Mystikerin, Schriftstellerin, Komponistin

  • Wenn wir zum Mars fliegen – und das werden wir – wäre es dumm, auf die Erde hinunterzublicken, und zu sagen: Ich kam von den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, Deutschland, Frankreich, England oder Israel.

General quotes

Reference to:

the Third Eye

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light.
But it your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness.
If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness!
Matthew 6, 22-23 (NT)

 

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light;
but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Luke 11, 34 (NT)

 

The people living in darkness have seen a great light, and for those living in the land and shadow of death, a light has risen.
Matthew 4, 16 (NT) International Standard Version, 2008

 

Without a vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29, 18 (OT)

 

Personal avowals

Guided on faith by the "inner voice"

  • I do not know what you call a vision and what you will call prophetic. When I announced my fast of 21 days in jail, I had not reasoned it. On retiring to bed the previous night, I had no notion that I was going to announce a fast for 21 days. But in the middle of the night, a voice woke me up and said,
    "Go through a fast."
    "How many?", I asked.
    "21 days", was the answer.
Now let me tell you that my mind was unprepared for it, disinclined for it. But the thing came to me clearly as anything could be. Whatever striking things I have done in life, I have not done prompted by reason but prompted by instinct, I would say God. Take the Dandi Salt March of 1930 (the single most important event that set the Indian freedom movement onwards to victory). I had not the ghost of a suspicion how the breach of the salt law would work itself out. Pandit (who later became the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru) and other friends were fretting and did not know what I would do; and I could tell them nothing, as I myself knew nothing about it. But like a flash it came, and as you know, it was enough to shake the country from one end to the other. Mohandas Karamchand Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) Indian Hindu sage, spiritual activist leader, humanitarian, lawyer, nonviolent freedom fighter, Prayer, India, 1977, Berkeley Hills Books, reprint edition July 2000

 

  • I slept and dreamed that life was happiness.
    I awoke and saw that life was service.
    I served and I saw that service was happiness.
    Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) Indian Bengali philosopher, musician, painter, playwright, poet, novelist, Nobel laureate in literature, 1913, aphorism

Restoring the spirit of medicine

  • We physicians desperately need to restore our sense of the visionary, to fight to keep the spirit of medicine alive. And the future of that spirit lies in the integration of technological advances with intuition, the wedding of heart and mind. Judith Orloff, M.D., Ph.D. DrJudithOrloff.com US American assistant professor of psychiatry, UCLA, empath, dying companion, lecturer, author, source unknown

Upholding vs. abandoning ideals

  • It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery, and death. Anne Frank (1929-1945) Jewish German girl, murdered in Nazi death camp Bergen-Belsen, age 15, Diary Excerpts, 15. July 1944

  • I represent a party which does not yet exist: the party Revolution-Civilization. This party will make the twentieth century. There will issue from it
    1. first the United States of Europe,
    2. then the United States of the World.
Victor Hugo (1802-1885) French statesman, human rights activist, exponent of the Romantic movement in France, visual artist, playwright, poet, essayist, novelist, Oeuvres complètes. Océan. Tas de Pierres, A. Michel, Paris, 1942

 

  • I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) US American historian, philosopher, leading transcendentalist, naturalist, abolitionist, surveyor, tax resister, development critic, poet, author, Walden, Or, Life in the Woods walden1a.html, Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1854

 

  • Some men see things as they are and say why.
    I dream things that never were and say why not.
Edward M. Kennedy (1932-2009) US American Democratic politician, senior United States Senator from Massachusetts, St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York City, 8. June 1968

 

  • My thing is I want everybody to become mindful, because then we will all start becoming more honorable, more self-controlled and in doing that we will all start to build this amazing future […] in which this freedom that we think we have will become a reality, in which this harmony that we want will become a reality. […] I have to change. Audio interview with Annette Jahnel (*1962) South African photographer, artist, world traveller offering the project "Searching for Galileo", public speaker, author, Interview With Author Annette Jahnel, presented by US American radio station Voice of Vashon, Vashon Island, Washington, program on Prose, Poetry & Purpose, host March Twisdale, minute 29:54, 1:02:20 duration, recorded summer 2014, posted 5.

Appeal

  • If we come together as one voice and one people on this one planet for the same purpose of creating positive change, standing up for the greater good of all of us, with God’s help, we can and will make enormous progress toward stopping all war, violence, injustice, hunger, disease, in fact all maladies on this earth. Joachim Hagopian (*1950) US American graduate and former Army officer, former US Army officer, psychologist, licensed therapist, investigative author, Don’t Let The Bastards Getcha Down, presented by RedRedSea, 2013

 

Recommendations

  • Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream. Lao Tzu (604-531 BC) Chinese sage, philosopher, founder of Daoism, author of Tao Te Ching [The Book of the Way], source unknown

 

  • There is always an enormous temptation in all of life to diddle around making itsy-bitsy friends and meals and journeys for itsy-bitsy years on end. It is so self-conscious, so apparently moral, simply to step aside from the gaps where the creeks and winds pour down, saying, I never merited this grace, quite rightly, and then to sulk along the rest of your days on the edge of rage. I won't have it. The world is wilder than that in all directions, more dangerous and bitter, more extravagant and bright. We are making hay when we should be making whoopee; we are raising tomatoes when we should be raising Cain or Lazarus. Thomas Merton (1915-1968) Anglo-American Catholic Trappist monk, mystic student of comparative religion, social activist, poet, writer, cited in: Annie Dillard (*1945) US American author, nonfiction narrative book Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, 1974, Deckle Edge, 12. June 2007, Harper Perennial Modern Classics, 10. September 2013

 

  • Just take the first step. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) US American Baptist minister, activist, leader of the African American civil rights movement

 

  • You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down. Toni Morrison (*1931) US American professor of humanities, editor, poet, novelist, Nobel laureate in literature, 1993, Pulitzer Prize laureate, Song of Solomon, Alfred Knopf, 1977

 

Conclusions

  • We are now in a new economy where wealth consists of energy – the metaphysical and the physical – and there is enough for everybody. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) US American engineer, systems theorist, architect, constructor, designer, inventor, futurist, philosopher, author, source unknown

 

(↓)

Graduating showdown between utopia or oblivion

  • We have the wherewithal, the know-it-all to feed everybody, clothe everybody, and give every human on Earth a chance. We know now what we could never have known before – that we now have the option for all humanity to make it successfully on this planet in this lifetime. Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the final moment. [...] Humanity is in 'final exam' as to whether or not it qualifies for continuance in Universe. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) US American engineer, systems theorist, architect, constructor, designer, inventor, futurist, philosopher, author, Critical Path, St Martins Press, 1981

 

Future outlook

 

  • A day will come when there will be no battlefields, but markets opening to commerce and minds opening to ideas. A day will come when the bullets and bombs are replaced by votes, by universal suffrage, by the venerable arbitration of a great supreme senate which will be to Europe what Parliament is to England, the Diet1 to Germany, and the Legislative Assembly to France.
    A day will come when a cannon will be a museum-piece, as instruments of torture are today. And we will be amazed to think that these things once existed!2
    A day will come when we shall see those two immense groups, the United States of America and the United States of Europe, facing one another, stretching out their hands across the sea, exchanging their products, their arts, their works of genius, clearing up the globe, making deserts fruitful, ameliorating creation under the eyes of the Creator, and joining together, to reap the well-being of all, these two infinite forces,
    1. the fraternity of men
    2. and the power of God.
Victor Hugo (1802-1885) French statesman, human rights activist, exponent of the Romantic movement in France, visual artist, playwright, poet, essayist, novelist, opening address, Peace Congress, Paris, 21 August 1849; cited in: Actes et paroles. Avant l'exil, 1875

 

Conclusions

  • The final barrier to the vision of God is your God concept. You miss God because you think you know. The highest knowledge of God is to know God as unknowable. All revelations, however divine, are never any more than a finger pointing at the moon. As we say in the East, 'When the sage points to the moon, all the idiot sees is the finger'. Anthony de Mello SJ (1931-1987) Indian Catholic Jesuit priest, psychotherapist, spiritual leader

 

  • When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. Audre Lorde (1934-1992) Caribbean-American activist, poet, writer, The Cancer Journals, Aunt Lute Books, 1980, 1997

 

Insights

  • Strategic planning is worthless – unless there is first a strategic vision. John Naisbitt (*1929) US American futurologist, living in Europe and China, author of Megatrends, 1982

 

  • It's very few of us that get to see the Burning Bush. Audio interview with Annette Jahnel (*1962) South African photographer, artist, world traveller offering the project "Searching for Galileo", public speaker, author, Interview With Author Annette Jahnel, presented by US American radio station Voice of Vashon, Vashon Island, Washington, program on Prose, Poetry & Purpose, host March Twisdale, minute 6:43, 1:02:20 duration, recorded summer 2014, posted 5. October 2014

 

  • When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. Patanjali (150-2nd c. BC) Indian Hindu sage, erudite compiler of the Yoga Sūtras [collection of aphorisms on Yoga practice, The Mahābhāṣya

 

  • Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
    Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
    Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, source unknown

 

  • The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird sleeps in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities. James Allen (1864-1912) English genius, pioneer of the self-help movement, inspirational poet, author, source unknown

 


Yggdrasil
  • If the vision was true and mighty, as I know, it is true and mighty yet; for such things are of the spirit, and it is in the darkness of their eyes that men get lost. Black Elk ['Wičháša Wakȟáŋ; Hehaka Sapa'] (1863-1950) North American medicine elder and heyoka of the Oglala Lakota tribe (Sioux) of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux), Catholic katechist, Pine Ridge reservation, South Dakota, Black Elk Speaks, 1932, reported by John Neihardt, 1961

 

 

 

  • Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. Viktor Frankl (1905-1997) Austrian psychiatrist, psychotherapist, neurologist, Nazi death camp survivor, meaning researcher, founder of logotherapy

 

  • The process that creates an image or an imaginative vision is one thing, and the process that tags it, frames it, and puts it into a context is quite another. We all are mad together in the first and visionary process, and Kekulé can dream of the serpent biting its tail, Poincaré can step onto a tram and have a theorem’s solution he has slept on flash into his mind […]. "The lunatic, the lover, and the poet are of imagination all compact," as the good Bard of Avon wrote. They who are truly mad are those who have difficulties in providing the appropriate social and cultural context for their visions and voices. It was Joan of Arc's good fortune that her voices and visions came at the time of the Hundred Years' War when they could be put to good use in rallying the French to repel the English invasion. When the Maid of Orleans' visions were no longer of use to the Church, she was burnt at the stake – as countless heretics before her had been, or after her, like Giordano Bruno at the time of the birth of modern science in 1600. William Irwin Thompson (*1938) US American cultural historian, mythologist, social philosopher, cultural critic, poet, writer, On False Memories and the Art of Writing Fiction, summer 2013   Link defect

 

  • You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’ George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish politician, pacifist, satirist, dramatist, Nobel laureate in literature, 1925, Back to Methuselah, part 1, act 1, 1921

 

 

  • The reconnection of society, economy and ethics is a project we cannot postpone. […]
    Every age, after all, must have its own aisling and dream of a better, kinder, happier, shared world. Michael D. Higgins (*1941) Irish Labour party politician, ninth president of Ireland (*November 2011), professor of sociology, human rights activist, broadcaster, poet, author, source unknown

 

 

  • A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality. Originally written by Yoko Ono (*1933) Japanese peace activist, multimedia artist, singer, many years before requoted by her husband John Lennon (1940-1980) English musician, singer-songwriter, founding member of the British music band The Beatles, December 1980, cited in: All We Are Saying. The Last Major Interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, host David Sheff, S. 16, 2000

 

  • We are pushed by pain until we are pulled by vision. Michael Beckwith, conversed US American preacher, ordained minister in Religious Science in 1985, founder of the New Thought church Agape International Spiritual Center, Culver City, California, author, source unknown

 

  • Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. Gloria Steinem gloriasteinem.com (*1934) leading US American feminist of the new women's movement, visionary and political activist, founder and editor of the feminist US magazine "Ms", journalist, writer, source unknown

 

  • The power of our vision and expectation flows out from us as a constant prayer. This power is stronger than anyone now knows, and we must master it and begin to use it before it is too late. James Redfield (*1950) popular US American bestseller novelist, lecturer, screenwriter, film producer, The Secret of Shambhala

 

  • We are explorers and the most compelling frontier of our time is human consciousness. Our quest is the integration of science and spirituality, a vision that reminds us of our connectedness to the inner self, to each other, and to the Earth. Edgar Mitchell Sc.D. (1930-2016) US American Apollo 14 astronaut, 6th man walking the moon, founder of IONS

 

  • We will go to Mars in due course. I have no doubt about that. When we go to Mars and look back at this tiny little planet we call Earth it'll sounds kind of foolish to say, I came from the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, Israel. No, I came from Earth. And we're not ready to do that yet. We don't have our act together yet. Edgar Mitchell Sc.D. (1930-2016) US American Apollo 14 astronaut, 6th man walking the moon, founder of IONs; cited in TV interview Legends and Legacies, presented by TV station WPBF, host Lisa Hayward, YouTube film, minute 3:21, 4:14 minutes duration, aired 2006 or earlier, posted 10. December 2007

 

  • Those that are most asleep think they are most awake, being under the power of very vivid and fixed dream visions, so that those who are most ignorant think they know most. Theodotus of Byzantium (late 2nd century) early Christian writer from Byzantium, accused of heresy

Healing tragedy with the power of imagination

  • History must be made in the depths of the human soul. The secret hope of this world is the kind of imagination that arises from the underlying spirit of life and the hidden resiliency of the human heart. When all hope is lost and all seems headed for disaster, it is genuine imagination that is missing and needs to be found again. The deepest level of hope is based in creative imagination which tends to appear when people are willing to stay in the tension of opposing issues long enough that a surprising vision dawns and a way forward appears. Article by Michael Meade, US American storyteller, scholar of mythology, psychology, anthropology, ritualist, spokesman in the Men's Movement, author, Three Kinds of People, presented by Mosaicvoices.org, ~November 2016

 

 

  • Vision is the art of seeing things invisible. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) Anglo-Irish cleric, dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, political pamphleteer, satirist, poet, essayist, source unknown

 

  • The great synthesizer who alters the outlook of a generation, who suddenly produces a kaleidoscopic change in our vision of the world, is apt to be the most envied, feared, and hated man among his contemporaries. Almost by instinct they feel in him the seed of a new order; they sense, even as they anathematize him, the passing away of the sane, substantial world they have long inhabited. Such a man is a kind of lens or gathering point through which thought gathers, is reorganized, and radiates outward again in new forms. Loren Eiseley (1907-1977) US American anthropologist, ecologist, poet, science writer, 1973

 

 

  • You can always tell who the pioneers are because they have arrows in their back and are lying face down in the dirt. Anonymous, source unknown

Literary quotes

  • We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) English dramatist, playwright, lyricist, actor, The Tempest, 4th act, 1st scene, 1610-1611 – Analysis by Associatedcontent.com

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • A useful technique to bypass mentalization is that of creative visualization in which the desired goal is envisioned and held in mind periodically. Potentiality tends to manifest when conditions are favorable, and intention (plus karmic propensities) is a contextual influence. In ordinary mentation, logic and sequence are seen as causal and also needful of effort. Envisioning is influential on outcome by entirely different (and easier) mechanisms. Dr. David Hawkins, Transcending the Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, chapter 13 Reason, S. 234-235, 2006

 

Englische Texte – English section on Vision

Great reconciliation – Macrovision by Peter Gold

"Having begun my own journey of unfolding into the best version of myself in the company of like-minded people, I continue to travel and publish extensively on how the wisdom ways of ancient and indigenous cultural traditions are the pivotal models for taking us through the transition into a new beholding self and cosmos: a deep gnosis of universal wholeness and a daily praxis of awakened or spiritual civility.
I have called this fundamental shift into the next macrovision of reality, the Great Reconciliation because it fully builds upon four formative human wisdom visions, which still subtly inform our individual and collective lives through symbols, expressive arts and vestiges of tradition, but to which we are currently collectively oblivious. These range from
➢ the life-affirming world visions of the Stone Ages;
➢ to the gnosis visions of Hermetic Egypt
➢ and the European Renaissance – in parallel with the triumphs of Tantric Buddhism;
➢ to the Indigenous Vision underlying the life and thought of contemporary Native Peoples;
➢ to the Quantum Vision now fueling the recalibration of our deepest thoughts,
as we stand on the brink of this great macroshift into a "Fifth Wisdom Vision of Sacred Wholeness and Awakened Civility."

Don't hand over your dream to the dream stealers

I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.
The last time I was there he introduced me by saying,

"I want to tell you why I let Jack use my house. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses.
As a result, the boy's high school career was continually interrupted. When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up.
That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track."

Then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000-square foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch. He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher.
Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read,

'See me after class.'

The boy with the dream went to see the teacher after class and asked,

"Why did I receive an F?"

The teacher said,

'this is an unrealistic dream for a young boy like you. You have no money. You come from a traveling family. You have no resources. Owning a horse ranch requires a lot of money. You have to buy the land. You have to pay for the original breeding stock and later you’ll have to pay large stud fees. There’s no way you could ever do it.'

Then the teacher added,

'If you will rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, I will reconsider your grade.'

 

The boy went home and thought about it long and hard. He asked his father what he should do. His father said,

'Look, son, you have to make up your own mind on this. However, I think it is a very important decision for you.'

 

Finally, after sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper, making no changes at all, he stated,

"You can keep the F and I’ll keep my dream."

 

Monty then turned to the assembled group and said,

"I tell you this story because you are sitting in my 4,000-square-foot house in the middle of my 200-acre horse ranch. I still have that school paper framed over the fireplace."

He added,

"The best part of the story is that two summers ago that same schoolteacher brought thirty kids to camp out on my ranch for a week."

When the teacher was leaving, he said,

"Look, Monty, I can tell you this now. When I was your teacher, I was something of a dream stealer. During those years I stole a lot of kids' dreams. Fortunately you had enough gumption not to give up on yours."

The impossible dream

 

To dream the impossible dream
To fight  the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow

Asymmetrical appearance of the
oscillating variable star Mira, NASA HST image,
Hubble space telescope, 6. August 1997
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right, without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause

 

And I know if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm,
when I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,

To reach the unreachable star
