Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know that man is here for the sake of other men.

Albert Einstein

"The delusion of man, is that reality is not an illusion."

Airl quoting IS-BE Laozi, by way of Matilda O'Donnell MacElroy via Lawrence R. Spencer. While this quote's extra-terrestrial origin is debatable, it's relevance is not. Taken from the proper perspective, this single sentence has the power to change your life.

Heres some more that I absolutely love by Rainer Maria Rilke.

Do not assume that he who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, he would never have been able to find these words.

"I have never been aware before how many faces there are. There are quantities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for each person has several."

How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment of our lives are princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.

"This is why we iterate quite often, when asked for specific information, that it pales to insignificance, just as the grass withers and dies while the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator redounds to the very infinite realms of creation forever and ever, creating and creating itself in perpetuity.

Why then be concerned with the grass that blooms, withers and dies in its season only to grow once again due to the infinite love and light of the One Creator? This is the message we bring. Each entity is only superficially that which blooms and dies. In the deeper sense there is no end to being-ness. " -Ra (soul complex)
