SATURDAY 12/22/07

Philosophy is the language one creates in an attempt to describe the indescribable.

Each experience gives information.
Information leads to knowledge and
knowledge is structured in consciousness.

Only the changeable can change.
I am the unchangeable.
It is the unchangeable
that makes the changeable possible.

‘Going to’ never happens.
‘Has’ has happened.

Give up the lesser
to gain the greater.

What use is a kite if it won’t fly?

One can only be a master of the known.
If you want to be a master of the unknown
you have to become a nothing and a nobody.
In other words - an unknown.

A known quantity is boring.
An unknown quantity is dangerous.

With so much concrete
it’s no wonder
life and times are hard.

Success creates confidence.
Confidence creates success.
Failure creates self-doubt.
Self-doubt creates failure.

There is not enough love manifested on this planet
therefore it will die and everything on it that walks and crawls.

One day there will be no tomorrow.

Thought is an external process.
It tries to get in.
The trick is to keep the doors shut and lock it out.

Only a man with no delusions has a future.
There is no future in ignorance and delusions.

What am I not aware of that I need to be aware of to improve the quality of my life now?

My self is internal.
God is external.
They are the same.
Two sides of the coin.

Just the asking of the question – that is enough.

Give up your biggest concepts
and all the smaller ones have to go with it.

It is not possible to love anything or anyone
if you are separate from them.

I took on the greatest challenge,
the destruction of ignorance.

Cultural ideas and concepts keep society glued together.Challenge that and you will come unstuck.

Whatever does not work for you is no good to you.

Misplaced belief is stupidity.

The limited can never control the unlimited.

That is the only way to live,
with awareness.

The mind gives birth. Its children are ideas. In order to keep its children alive it has to focus on them. In the process of doing so it becomes attached which ultimately leads to suffering.

The simple very seldom goes wrong but, if it does, it is very simple to fix. When life becomes so complex that computers are needed to run things, problems become very difficult to fix.

Once one presumes they can die they will do whatever it takes to survive.

The more one is being themselves
The less talking goes on.
You can’t continue talking to the self if you are being yourself.
The only thing you can legitimately be is yourself.

If you do not master the dog
the dog will master you.
