Zeena Schreck
“Shapeshifting requires the ability to transcend your attachments, in particular your ego attachments to identity and who you are. If you can get over your attachment to labeling yourself and your cherishing of your identity, you can be virtually anybody. You can slip in and out of different shells, even different animal forms or deity forms.”
Zeena Schreck

“Individually, every grain of sand brushing against my hands represents a story, an experience, and a block for me to build upon for the next generation.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

Zeena Schreck
“The material world is all feminine. The feminine engergy makes the non-manifest, manifest. So even men (are of the feminine energy). We have to relinquish our ideas of gender in the conventional sense. This has nothing to do with gender, it has to do with energy. So feminine energy is what creates and allows anything which is non-manifest, like an idea, to come into form, into being, to be born. All that we experience in the world around us, absolutely everything (is feminine energy). The only way that anything exists is through the feminine force.”
Zeena Schreck

Raquel Cepeda

L.M. Browning
“Who are we without our addictions; without our media-induced hungers? So often the voices we hear echoing in our mind are not our own but that of our influencers. Isolation, while arguably going against human nature, is essential for mental and emotional health. Solitude is a detoxification of all that distorts our personality and misguides our path in life. It allows us to filter out the foreign opinions and hear our own voice—reach our authentic character—and practice fidelity to self.”
L.M. Browning, Seasons of Contemplation: A Book of Midnight Meditations

Raquel Cepeda
“This thing I am feeling, I’m almost certain, is the closest I’ll ever come to standing somewhere in between truth and reconciliation.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

Zeena Schreck
“There are Tantrics who deliberately seek to do more active forms of renunciation, so transgression of social norms and breaking of taboo, and breaking of social taboos especially, is a form of renunciation.”
Zeena Schreck

“In the beginning we seek truth.
In the middle we seek reason.
In the end we seek peace.”

“Let me tell you the meaning of the sacred and alluring garden that blooms in the heart of the desert and produces the food of life. The garden for which you are currently heading is nowhere and everywhere except in the camps. It is another name for the only place where you belong, Michaels, where you do not feel homeless. It is off every map, no road leads to it that is merely a road, and only you know the way.”
J.M. Coetzee, Life And Times Of Michael K

Michael Bassey Johnson
“When the fuel is dried up in a vehicle, it stops driving automatically.
You are a vehicle in the spiritual and the physical world, so you need some oil for alacrity, in order to get to your destination.
The greater the quantity of your oil, the more you cover the distance, and the more you cover the distance, the closer you get to your success.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

Raquel Cepeda
“The Dominican Republic is my holy land, my Mecca.”

Zeena Schreck
“Most humans who have been reared with the creature comforts of the spiritually vacuous industrialized Western world will cease their search [for Truth] at the first signs of physical, psychic, or mundane resistance; or as soon as they encounter the difficulties of dissolving deeply entrenched self-delusions. Look at the world around you, and tell me that it appears to be filled with people genuinely in search of Truth!”
Zeena Schreck, The Zaum of Zeena

Robert M. Pirsig
“The title of this Chautauqua is "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance," not "Zen and the Art of Mountain Climbing," and there are no motorcycles on the tops of mountains, and in my opinion very little Zen. Zen is the "spirit of the valley," not the mountaintop. The only Zen you fin on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Jared Brock
“God is the inevitability of humanity’s search for true meaning.”

“In making a path like the Buddha, we discover our own capacities for relationship. Doing this is like feeling our way in the dark. We need a healthy appreciation for what kind of obstacles we are facing within ourselves, and we need a method for working our way around those obstacles. It is in this sense that the path is the goal - opening leads to further opening. The Buddha's meditative teachings are about finding and incorporating a method around our obstacles.”
Mark Epstein, Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart: A Buddhist Perspective on Wholeness

“Service of self is best developed in dealings of service to others.”
