“. A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in bygone times may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes in Nature”Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943)

“When a child is born its sense-organs are brought in contact with the outer world. The waves of sound, heat, and light beat upon its feeble body, its sensitive nerve-fibres quiver, the muscles contract and relax in obedience: a gasp, a breath, and in this act a marvelous little engine, of inconceivable delicacy and complexity of construction, unlike any on earth, is hitched to the wheel-work of the Universe.”Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943)

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ― Nikola Tesla

“Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more” ― Nikola Tesla

“Everyone should consider hisbody as a priceless gift fromone whom he loves above all, amarvelous work of art, ofindescribable beauty, andmystery beyond human conception, and so delicate thata word, a breath, a look, nay, athought may injure it.” ― Nikola TeslaThe invention of the wheel was perhaps rather obvious; but the invention of an invisible wheel, made of nothing but a magnetic field, was far from obvious, and that is what we owe to Nikola Tesla.Reginald Kapp (1956)More Tesla Quotes (Author of My Inventions) www.goodreads.com53 quotes from Nikola Tesla: ‘I don’t care that they stole my idea . .

  • We have no reason to mistrust our world, for it is not against us. Has it terrors, they are our terrors; has it abysses, those abysses belong to us; are dangers at hand, we must try to love them. And if only we arrange our life according to that principle which counsels us that we must always hold to the difficult, then that which now seems to us the most alien will become what we most trust and find most faithful. 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 turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons in 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.
    – Rainer Maria Rilke, translation John J. L. Mood

  •  “When we plant a rose seed in the earth, we notice that it is small, but we do not criticize it as “rootless and stemless.” We treat it as a seed, giving it the water and nourishment required of a seed. When it first shoots up out of the earth, we don’t condemn it as immature and underdeveloped; nor do we criticize the buds for not being open when they appear. We stand in wonder at the process taking place and give the plant the care it needs at each stage of its development. The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change; yet at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly all right as it is.” -W. Timothy Gallwey

  • When we are engaged in blind compassion, we rarely show any anger, for we not only believe that compassion has to be gentle, but we also are frightened of upsetting anyone, especially to the point of their confronting us. This is reinforced by our judgment of anger, especially in its more fiery forms, as something less than spiritual; something to be equated with ill will, hostility, and aggression; something that should not be there if we were being truly loving.In blind compassion we don’t know how to — or won’t learn how to — say “no” with any real power, avoiding confrontation at all costs and, as a result, enabling unhealthy patterns to continue. Our “yes” is then anemic and impotent, devoid of the impact it could have if we were also able to access a clear, strong “no” that emanated from our core.When we mute our essential voice, our openness is reduced to a permissive gap, an undiscerning embrace, a poorly boundaried receptivity, all of which indicate a lack of compassion for ourselves (in that we don’t adequately protect ourselves). Blind compassion confuses anger with aggression, forcefulness with violence, judgment with condemnation, exaggerated tolerance with caring, and spiritual correctness with moral maturity.~ Robert Augustus Masters
  • If a person does not feel alone and sad, he cannot be a warrior at all.Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
  • “How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas?

  • Stop pathologizing your negativity, stop assigning it a lower status, stop keeping it in the dark. Go to it, open its doors and windows, take it by the hand. Meet its gaze. Feel its woundedness, feel into it, feel for it, feel it without any buffers. Soon you will start to sense that its gaze is none other than your own, perhaps from an earlier time, but yours nonetheless, containing so much of you. Humanize it fully. Keep something in the dark long enough and it will very likely behave badly.Turn on the lights, slowly but steadily. Your simple presence is enough. Let your heart soften more. Breathe more fully, bringing what you call your negativity closer to you, opening at a fitting pace. No rush. Let it shift, however slowly, from a distant foreign object to a reclaimed part of your being. Let its blinders and pain and longing break your heart. Your ambition to transcend your negativity is now all but gone, as you realize right to your core that your real work is to reclaim and reembody it. You are with yourself even more deeply, your initial aversion all but gone, and now hold what you previously termed your negativity in the way that loving parents hold their distressed child, bringing it into your heart, feeling a rising desire and power to protect that little one. No negativity now. No turning away. Just love, ease, recognition, presence, effortless wholeness. This is life in the raw, too real to be reduced to positive and negative, too alive to be shut down. Robert Augustus Masters

  • “Maybe each human being lives in a unique world, a private world different from those inhabited and experienced by all other humans. . . If reality differs from person to person, can we speak of reality singular, or shouldn’t we really be talking about plural realities? And if there are plural realities, are some more true (more real) than others? What about the world of a schizophrenic? Maybe it’s as real as our world. Maybe we cannot say that we are in touch with reality and he is not, but should instead say, His reality is so different from ours that he can’t explain his to us, and we can’t explain ours to him. The problem, then, is that if subjective worlds are experienced too differently, there occurs a breakdown in communication…and there is the real illness.”- Philip K. Dick
  • It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.– Aldous Huxley
  • “Oh,we are all agreed here Sir that your theory is crazy. The question that divides us is whether it is crazy enough.”- Niels Bohr to Werner Heisenberg while discussing the nature of the quantum world
  • “The universe is a cosmic soup made up of infinite packets of possible scenarios. Which possibility becomes manifest is determined by the frequency of our thinking. Loving thought causes miraculous possibilities; non-loving thought leads to fearful ones. In any given moment, any “holy instant,” we can internally take a stand for love. Release the past. Bless all beings. Know you’re not a victim. Judge no one. Devote yourself to love.”~ Marianne Williamson
  • The way of the shaman is to accept each day and each moment as you find it and not try to control it, but flow with it, knowing that your higher self is guiding you towards who you truly are. Your destiny and the destiny of every human being is to be who you truly are; divine beings of love and light. Your purpose and the purpose of every living being is to heal, serve and love unconditionally, in your own unique way. – Don Juan Perez Flores, Amazonian Curandero

  • An individual having unusual difficulties in coping with hisenvironment struggles and kicks up the dust, as it were. I have usedthe figure of a fish caught on a hook: his gyrations must lookpeculiar to other fish that don’t understand the circumstances; buthis splashes are not his affliction, they are his effort to get rid of hisaffliction and as every fisherman knows these efforts may succeed. – Karl Menninger
