Stefan Zweig
“We are happy when people/things conform and unhappy when they don't. People and events don't disappoint us, our models of reality do. It is my model of reality that determines my happiness or disappointments.”
Stefan Zweig, Chess Story

Danielle Bernock
“Perception is reality to the one in the experience.”
Danielle Bernock, Emerging With Wings: A True Story of Lies, Pain, And The LOVE that Heals

Abhijit Naskar
“Time is basically an illusion created by the mind to aid in our sense of temporal presence in the vast ocean of space. Without the neurons to create a virtual perception of the past and the future based on all our experiences, there is no actual existence of the past and the future. All that there is, is the present.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a scientist who found himself by getting lost

Abhijit Naskar
“The first step of building a good future is to recognize the reality of the present and then work through that reality.”
Abhijit Naskar, Good Scientist: When Science and Service Combine

“Don't let your perception limit your depth of comprehension.”
Aditya Shukla

H.S. Crow
“If all the stars sank back into the White Sea, there would be no space for thee. For we are the jubilee of when eternity could see. A memory of what was, and suns could be.”
H.S. Crow

Abhijit Naskar
“Future is born out of the present not separate from it.”
Abhijit Naskar, Good Scientist: When Science and Service Combine

Ashim Shanker
“The feeling filters in for an instant, then rushes out, leaving lasting watermarks of nostalgia. Neurotransmitters will only impart tired old platitudes of common structure: trite anecdotes with predictable elements. No doubt the perception of this Moment will recede back in with the waves and leave me once again looking to symbols for recollection. But then, perhaps it is wrong of me to think of it this way.

It is, yes.”
Ashim Shanker, trenches parallax leapfrog

“Logic is just your perception.”
Shubham Sanap

“Nobody’s my anything. ‘I’ am my everything, I am out of bounds of all relations, I’m out of the constraints of terms like genetics or hereditary or ancestry or family. I am nothing but a speck of consciousness, trying to figure out why its alive in the first place, what its purpose is. I am but a mere glitch, a glitch of existence in this universe whose dimensions we cannot comprehend.”
Aryan Rajput

Tom Robbins
“One has not only an ability to perceive the world but an ability to alter one's perception of it; more simply, one can change things by the manner in which one looks at them.”
Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Shelley Klammer
“Simply repeating "I don't understand anything I see" will open you up to creative vision. Initially, when you practice, you might feel a sense of uncomfortable bewilderment; however, if you stay with this practice, inspiration will peek through the ordinariness of what you normally see.”
Shelley Klammer, A Course in Creating Confidence: 365 Self-Love Practices Inspired by A Course in Miracles

Charles Dickens
“But Physician was a composed man, who performed neither on his own trumpet, nor on the trumpets of other people. Many wonderful things did he see and hear, and much irreconcilable moral contradiction did he pass his life among; yet his equality of compassion was no more disturbed than the Divine Master's of all healing was. He went, like the rain, among the just and unjust, doing all the good he could, and neither proclaiming it in the synagogues nor at the corner of streets.”
Charles Dickens, Little Dorrit

Charles Dickens
“As no man of large experience of humanity, however quietly carried it may be, can fail to be invested with an interest peculiar to the possession of such knowledge, Physician was an attractive man. Even the daintier gentlemen and ladies who had no idea of his secret, and who would have been startled out of more wits than they had, by the monstrous impropriety of his proposing to them 'Come and see what I see!' confessed his attraction. Where he was, something real was. And half a grain of reality, like the smallest portion of some other scarce natural productions, will flavour an enormous quantity of diluent.”
Charles Dickens, Little Dorrit

Abhijit Naskar
“We may consider something wrong due to our lack of knowledge, but in the face of overwhelming evidence only an animal refuses to change their outlook and persists with their delusions.”
Abhijit Naskar, Solo Standing on Guard: Life Before Law

Abhijit Naskar
“Sonnet of Chemical Reality

The universe is our reflection,
We are the reflection of the universe.
What is inside is also outside,
What is outside is also inside of us.
No reality exists without human control,
Reality outside our control is imagination.
Mental chemicals produce all reality,
All can be altered with mindful action.
Mind is mightier than muscle,
Kindness is braver than cruelty.
All reform is born of mental chemicals,
Reform yourself and there'll be universality.
Truth beyond perception is futile speculation.
Let's focus on life and improve human condition.”
Abhijit Naskar, Generation Corazon: Nationalism is Terrorism

Corey Laliberte
“He imagined light-years grand in scale, across swells, plumes of regions eaten by nebula, phosphorous like
drifts of sight wielding star formations take on familiar shapes that carve themselves into an elegance of primordial absolute and fundamental gasses, decaying time to near zero where gravitational densities near infinity. He imagined that a silent cosmos isn't silent nor is empty space empty at all, yet is filled with energies immensurable. And how orchestrations of
temperatures created centuries in seconds. Plasma bursts off of exotic stars threading to theories non-existent. Fabric waves of elementary particles with direct ties to quantum fields, slices into the shifts of dimensions, Sam would think staring out into the darkness of space.”
Corey Laliberte, Quantum Dawn - 'A Journey of Human Evolutionary Paths'

Corey Laliberte
“Sam would stand on the beach at dusk for long periods of time staring at the particles reflectively glisten across trillions of tiny explosion points watching sunsets of the Aegean Sea fade out. Sam would change his visible spectrum across wider ranges allowing the
elements and their cascade of radiance to repeat and dance in vibratory field mechanisms unimaginable. The waves would crash glowing with blue bioluminescence but on the opposite ends of the spectrum creating red shift tides that grew and shrank on black sand while the sun burned in turquoise.”
Corey Laliberte, Quantum Dawn - 'A Journey of Human Evolutionary Paths'

Aleister Crowley
“To argue:..."only causes us to fall into the pit of Because, and there to perish with the dogs of Reason.”

“There will be no further evolution without conscious evolution. - Robert Ornstein, The Evolution of Consciousness”
Robert Ornstein, God 4.0: On the Nature of Higher Consciousness and the Experience Called “God”

Robert  Ornstein
“This book is the culmination of, the capstone to Robert Ornstein’s brilliant, ground-breaking half century of research into the dimensions, capacities, and purposes of human consciousness. Deeply thoughtful and wide-ranging in scope, his final book goes well beyond the “left-brain, right-brain” work for which he originally became famous, this time bringing the often-confusing and divisive subject of spirituality into a clear and useful 21st-century focus, presenting it as a matter of perception, not belief. Using rigorous, rational, scientific analysis – always his greatest strength – Ornstein shows that the spiritual impulse is innate, a human ability that from the Ice Age forward has been essential to problem solving. As a final part of his legacy, he lays out how this capacity to reach beyond the everyday can, cleared of cobwebs and seen afresh, play a role and be part of preparing humanity to confront today’s staggering global problems. A rewarding and fascinating book. — Tony Hiss, author of Rescuing the Planet: Protecting Half the Land to Heal the Earth”
Robert Ornstein, God 4.0: On the Nature of Higher Consciousness and the Experience Called “God”

Robert  Ornstein
“Staggering in scope and breadth, 'God 4.0' is the culmination of Ornstein’s work on the psychology of consciousness. Connecting the latest research from archeology, religious history, psychology and brain science, the authors extend a timely invitation to explore a latent, intuitive faculty we all share – one that can moves us beyond belief, faith, and doctrine to a wider perception of who we are and who we could become. — David D. Sobel, MD, MPH, Stanford University School of Medicine”
Robert Ornstein, God 4.0: On the Nature of Higher Consciousness and the Experience Called “God”

Robert  Ornstein
“God 4.0' can make you rethink what God, religion, consciousness, and the human experience of them are. What if God were not a disembodied spirit? What if God were an altered state of consciousness? … Our experience of God is seen as an inborn network of the human brain, a second system of cognition and connection which can be accessed and help us today. This landmark book shines new light on things we thought we understood. — Charles Swencionis, Associate Professor of Psychology, Yeshiva University”
Robert Ornstein, God 4.0: On the Nature of Higher Consciousness and the Experience Called “God”

Robert  Ornstein
“God 4.0' is a visionary fusion of true spirituality and neuroscience. Both authors forcefully argue for “consciousness evolution” which is a shift away from self-centeredness that releases enhanced perceptual capabilities. This shift can profoundly influence epigenetic expression, health, and perhaps even influence the epigenetic inheritance of future generations. — Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, UCSF School of Medicine, Author of Change Your Genes, Change Your Life”
Robert Ornstein, God 4.0: On the Nature of Higher Consciousness and the Experience Called “God”

Robert  Ornstein
“God 4.0' is a stunning tour de force of erudition, deftly summarizing forty thousand years of the human search for spiritual transcendence – via the painted caves of the Ice Age shamans, the Neolithic megaliths and Mesopotamian ziggurats, and the soaring Medieval cathedrals and mosques. The second half of the book turns inward to describe the structures and processes of the human brain that foster transcendence, and the factors that interfere with it. Robert and Sally Ornstein make an ideal team for this collaboration, Sally a painter and publisher of children’s books, and Robert a psychologist and neuroscientist. The result is a brilliant guided expedition through reams of archeological and neurological research, with the authors highlighting in easily understood language the important discoveries and developments in our perennial quest for meaning and purpose. — Lisa Alther, novelist and author of four New York Times best sellers”
Robert Ornstein, God 4.0: On the Nature of Higher Consciousness and the Experience Called “God”

Robert  Ornstein
“A fine, fine book, lucid, unsmug, amazingly comprehensive. Reading [it] I felt over and over again that this was the book I had been waiting for. —The New Yorker”
Robert Ornstein, The Psychology of Consciousness

Robert  Ornstein
“An original and explosive book. It starts out by making psychology, the science of the mind, what’s it actually is—as exciting and suspenseful as a good mystery story. —George B. Leonard”
Robert Ornstein, The Psychology of Consciousness

Robert  Ornstein
“Consciousness is the awareness of awareness.”
Robert Ornstein, The Psychology of Consciousness
