Mike  Norton
“Never say that you can't do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can't be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible.

Master yourself, and become king of the world around you. Let no odds, chastisement, exile, doubt, fear, or ANY mental virii prevent you from accomplishing your dreams. Never be a victim of life; be it's conqueror.”
Mike Norton

“Reason and logic are a force for unity. People can rally around the objective, absolute Truth. All of these are undermined by the Dunning-Kruger effect, by the rise of irrationalism. Today, the world is full of subjectivists and relativists who actively sneer at the Truth and proclaim that everyone has their own truth. When you start believing your own truth, your own propaganda, your own bullshit, you become a narcissist. You think you are a god, and that no one is allowed to contradict you. After all, who are they to challenge your truth?”
Joe Dixon, Dumbocalypse Now: The First Dunning-Kruger President

Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan
“Relative’ is a duality!”
Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan

“We live here for five to fifty years (in this world, in the relative) and we are searching for beautiful houses there, while where we have to live permanently (moksha; in the Real, Self), there is no work being done for it; and no one is even inquiring about that (place). The world is baseless/disorderly. ‘Do something for here and do something for there’. We are not saying not to do anything for here. Do both. Don’t you have two hands?”
Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan
“When one prays to an image of Lord Krishna, it reaches the 'relative'. If one bows down here (at the lotus feet of the Gnani Purush), then it reaches one's own Self (Atma) directly. This is because the vitaraag One (One free from all attachment and abhorrence) does not accept it, does He? It is always such that, wherever there is darshan of both the 'relative' and the 'real', there indeed lies liberation (moksha).”
Dada Bhagwan, Spirituality In Speech

Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan, The Guru and the Disciple

Dada Bhagwan
“In worldly life, no one will become our very own. It is only our Soul that is our very own. Where everything is relative, what is there (to expect)?”
Dada Bhagwan, Who Am I?

Dada Bhagwan
“In this world, there is truly no one who is your relative. And those who are, are in the form of a 'relation'.”
