    We live between the act of awakening

    and the act of surrender. Each morning, we awaken to the light and the invitation to a new day in the world of time; each night, we surrender to the dark to be taken to play in the world of dreams where time is no more.

    Men and women are not free to love decently

    until they have analyzed themselves completely and swept away every mystery from sex; and this means the acquisition of a profound philosophical theory based on wide reading of anthropology and enlightened practice. - Aleister Crowley

    Anybody can become angry -

    Life

    We are all but recent leaves on the same old tree of life and if this life has adapted itself to new functions and conditions, it uses the same old basic principles over and over again.  There is no real difference between the grass and the man who mows it.  ~Albert...

    “When we honestly ask ourselves

    which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.” ― Henri Nouwen

    Men always talk about the most important things

    to perfect strangers. In the perfect stranger we perceive man himself; the image of a God is not disguised by resemblances to an uncle or doubts of wisdom of a mustache. -G. K. Chesterton

    The intuitive mind is a sacred gift

    and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift. ~Albert Einstein ~

    Brilliant Metaphor

    “The sun was like a huge 50-cent piece that someone had poured kerosene on and then had lit with a match, and said, "Here, hold this while I go get a newspaper," and put the coin in my hand, but never came back.” -Richard Brautigan

    Hmmm...

    If I make the lashes dark And the eyes more bright And the lips more scarlet, Or ask if all be right From mirror after mirror, No vanity's displayed: I'm looking for the face I had Before the world was made. ~W.B. Yeats
