When awakened from the delusions of maya, one beholds their body, the separately existing images of other human beings, and all material objects to be streaming unceasingly from one Source: the consciousness of God… ~ Yogananda
You are an eternal being now on the pathway of endless unfoldment, never less but always more yourself. Life is not static. It is forever dynamic, forever creating, not something done and finished, but something alive, awake and aware. There is something within you that sings the song of eternity. Listen to it… ~ Ernest Holmes
Though One Brahman is the Cause of the Many…Behold but One in all things..it is the second that leads you astray… ~ Kabir
You have to ask yourself the question ‘Who am I?’ This investigation will lead in the end to the discovery of something within you which is behind the mind… ~ Ramana Maharshi
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. One experiences themself, their thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of their consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. ~ Albert Einstein
I and my Father are one…. ~ Christ (John 10:30)
Dear Ambassador Griffith: I wanted to convey to you my views on our extraterrestrial visitors popularly referred to as “UFO’s”, and suggest what might be done to properly deal with them.
I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets, which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on earth. I feel that we need to have a top level, coordinated program to scientifically
collect and analyze data from all over the earth concerning any type of encounter, and to determine how best to interface with these visitors in a friendly fashion.
