[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.]

Anlayo Quotes

"Another aspect inviting contemplation is the fact that the affective tone of any feeling depends on the type of contact that has caused its arising. Once this conditioned nature of feelings is fully apprehended, detachment arises naturally and ones identification with feelings starts to dissolve."

Quotes About Pulling Through

"Day one, the van broke down. It was so cold the accelerator cable froze, so when Tony [Iommi] put his foot down it snapped in half. Which meant we were stranded in the middle of f**king nowhere, halfway to Copenhagen. There was a blizzard outside, but Tony said it was my job – as the bands ‘public representative – to go and find some help. So out I walked into this field, snow blowing into my face, two icicles of snot hanging out of my nose, until finally I saw the lights of a farmhouse up ahead. Then I fell into a trench. After finally pulling myself out of the f**king thing, I waded through the snow until I reached the front door, then knocked loudly.‘Halløj? said the big, red-faced Eskimo bloke who opened the door.‘Oh, thank f**k, I said.[...]‘Halløj?I didnt know any Danish, so I pointed towards the road, and said, ‘Van.

Quotes About Being Able To Read

"All Im telling you to do is to be smart about it. Know that if this man isnt looking for a serious relationship, youre not going to change his mind just because you two are going on dates and being intimate. You could be the most perfect woman on the Lords green earth-youre capable of interesting conversation, you cook a mean breakfast, you hand out backrubs like sandwiches, youre independent (which means, to him, that youre not going to be in his pockets)-but if hes not ready for a serious relationship, he going to treat you like sports fish." - Author: Steve Harvey

To have our eyes open soberly with all our senses and memory intact allows some of the most rewarding, soul-nourishing, and long-lasting pleasures possible." - Author: Alexandra Katehakis

Quotes About War And Death

"Höderer: You dont love men, Hugo. You love only principles. Hugo: Men? Why should I love them? Do they love me?Höderer: Then why did you come to us? If you dont love men, you cant fight for them.Hugo: I joined the party because its cause is just, and I shall leave it when that cause ceases to be just. As for men, its not what they are that interests me, but what they can become.Höderer: And I, I love them for what they are. With all their filth and and all their vices. I love their voices and their warm grasping hands, and their skin, the nudest skin of all, and their uneasy glances, and the desperate struggle each has to pursue against anguish and against death. For me, one man more or less in the world is something that counts. Its something precious. You, I know you now, you are a destroyer. You detest men because you detest yourself. Your purity resembles death. The revolution you dream of is not ours. You dont want to change the world, you want to blow it up." - Author: Jean Paul Sartre
