* crazy train

Think of a very long railway train, but long ago the locomotive ran away from it.

Christendom is like this.

Generation after generation has imperturbably continued to link the enormous train of the new generation to the previous one, solemnly saying: We will hold fast to the faith of the fathers.

Thus Christendom has become the very opposite of what Christianity is. Christianity is restlessness, the restlessness of the eternal. Any comparison here is flat and tedious, to such a degree that the restlessness of the eternal is restless. Christendom is tranquillity.

How charming, the tranquillity of literally not moving.

(Soren Kierkegaard)

costanza

SUSAN: Seven Costanza? You're serious?

GEORGE: Yeah. It's a beautiful name for a boy or a girl......especially a girl. Or a boy.

SUSAN: I don't think so.

GEORGE: What, you don't like the name?

SUSAN: It's not a name. It's a number. It's awful. I hate it!

GEORGE: (angry) Well, that's the name!

SUSAN: (also angry) Oh no it is not! No child of mine is ever going to be named Seven!

GEORGE: (yelling) Awright, let's just stay calm here! Don't get all crazy on me!

"It is as if the formation of patterns within the unconscious mind is accompanied by physical patterns in the outer world. In particular, as psychic patterns are on the point of reaching consciousness, the synchronicities reach their peak; moreover, they generally disappear as the individual becomes consciously aware of a new alignment of forces within his or her own personality ... It is as if the internal restructuring produces external resonance, or as if a burst of "mental energy" is propagated outward onto the world.



Synchronicities, epiphanies, peak, and mystical experiences are all cases in which creativity breaks through the barriers of the self and allows awareness to flood through the whole domain of consciousness. It is the human mind operating, for a moment, in its true order and moving through orders of increasing subtlety, reaching past the source of mind and matter into creativity itself."

(David Peat, Author & Physicist)

"An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."


"Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism."


"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves."


"Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble."


"The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers."


"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed."


"The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases."


"We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses."


"As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being."


"The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it."


"Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other."

"The art of not reading is a very important one. It consists in not taking an interest in whatever may be engaging the attention of the general public at any particular time. When some political or ecclesiastical pamphlet, or novel, or poem is making a great commotion, you should remember that he who writes for fools always finds a large public. A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones: for life is short."

"What disturbs and depresses young people is the hunt for happiness on the firm assumption that it must be met with in life. From this arises constantly deluded hope and so also dissatisfaction. Deceptive images of a vague happiness hover before us in our dreams, and we search in vain for their original. Much would have been gained if, through timely advice and instruction, young people could have had eradicated from their minds the erroneous notion that the world has a great deal to offer them."

(Arthur Schopenhauer)
