[Because The Egoic Mind Has Led Us To Feel Separate From Our Immortal Ground Of Being Over The Millennia, We Have Invented A Number Of Immortality Symbols To Give Us A Precarious Sense Of Security And Identity In Life. Traditionally, These Have Been Religious In Character, Such As The Belief In Everlasting Life After Death, In The West, And The Belief In Reincarnation, In The East. However, Today, It Is Money That Provides The Primary Immortality Symbol. It Is Our Obsession For Money That Is Driving Humanity To Extinction. For When We Do Not Face Our Fears With Full Consciousness And Intelligence, These Fears Will Eventually Come Along To Haunt Us.]

Quotes About Land Ownership

"All human populations are in some sense immigrants. All hostility between different cultures in one place has an aspect of the classic immigrant grudge against the next boatload approaching the shore. To defend ones home and fields and ancestral graves against invasion seems a right. But to claim unique possession – to compound the fact of settlement with the aspect of a landscape into an abstract of eternal and immutable ownership – is a joke." - Author: Neal Ascherson

Lovers become strangers. Strangers become friends once more, and over and over. Tomorrow, next week, fifty years from now, I know Ill get another one-word postcard from Marcus, because this one doesnt have a period signifying the end of the sentence.Or the end of anything at all." - Author: Megan McCafferty

Quotes About Funny Led Zeppelin

"Brooding is more something I do when Im working. I know so much more about sitting around worrying about a work project than I do about worrying about kids. This could just be a fact of life for older moms. Weve worked and worked and worked and if we are lucky enough to finally have a child or two, we find ourselves suddenly catapulted into a most alien kind of chaos. Work is so much easier. Anyone will tell you that. To have a desk, where you have everything all lined up, and a schedule you more or less get to agree to. Work. I am a worker. This is so funny because I never really think of my work as work. I certainly never though of myself as having a career. Writing, work, this is just who I am. I am a person who sits at a desk and makes phone calls and taps at a computer keyboard and sips coffee and calls her mom at five. That I am anything better or smaller than that has come as sudden news to me. Brand new.News." - Author: Jeanne Marie Laskas

Quotes About Unconsciousness Mind

"There is a drowsy state, between sleeping and waking, when you dream more in five minutes with your eyes half open, and yourself half conscious of everything that is passing around you, than you would in five nights with your eyes fast closed, and your senses wrapt in perfect unconsciousness. At such time, a mortal knows just enough of what his mind is doing, to form some glimmering conception of its mighty powers, its bounding from earth and spurning time and space, when freed from the restraint of its corporeal associate." - Author: Charles Dickens
