[Never Trust The Occultist Who Tells You That He Is The Head Of A Tradition, Because If He Were, In The First Place, He Would Not Tell The Fact To The Uninitiated, And In The Second Place He Would In All Probability Be Living In Great Seclusion And Inaccessible To All But His Immediate Subordinates. If A Man Is A Great Artist He Does Not Need To Inform Us Of The Fact; We Shall Know Him By His Pictures That Are Hung In The Galleries Of The Nation, And We Shall, Moreover, Find That He Guards Himself From Casual Acquaintances Because Of The Inroads On His Time To Which His Fame Renders Him Liable. The More Eminent A Person, The Harder He Is To Approach, Not Out Of Any Spirit Of Pride And Exclusiveness, But Because So Many People Want To See Him That Discrimination Has To Be Used In Admitting Them.]

"If your fundamental is a man dying on the cross for his enemies, if the very heart of your self-image and your religion is a man praying for his enemies as he died for them, sacrificing for them, loving them - if that sinks into your heart of hearts, its going to produce the kind of life that the early Christians produced.

Quotes About Riding Waves

"In the time we spend reeling in confusion, grasping at straws trying to piece our egos together, we forget to acknowledge some things. Society created gender roles and categorizations and lifestyles and names and titles because we fear the unknown, especially when the unknown is us.Its as though were stranded in the middle of an ocean, but we were promised the current would bring us back ashore. Were given all we need on the life raft. As far as we can see, were being led back, slowly. We dont know when well approach the shore, but all evidence points to the fact that we will. But we dont spend our time looking around, enjoying the view, seeing who came with us, and riding out the waves. We sit and panic about what were doing and why we came here.It doesnt matter where we started because we may never know. It matters where were going, because that, we do. We begin and we end. Weve seen one, so theres only one other option." - Author: Brianna Wiest
