Allan Rufus
“Life is like a game of chess.
To win you have to make a move.
Knowing which move to make comes with IN-SIGHT
and knowledge, and by learning the lessons that are
acculated along the way.

We become each and every piece within the game called life!”
Allan Rufus, The Master's Sacred Knowledge

“There are two kinds of secrets. The ones we keep from others and the ones we keep from ourselves.”
Frank Warren

Megan Chance
“Imagine you come upon a house painted brown. What color would you say the house was?"
"Why brown, of course."
"But what if I came upon it from the other side, and found it to be white?"
"That would be absurd. Who would paint a house two colors?"
He ignored my question. "You say it's brown, and I say it's white. Who's right?"
"We're both right."
"Non," he said. "We're both wrong. The house isn't brown or white. It's both. You and I only see one side. But that doesn't mean the other side doesn't exist. To not see the whole is to not see the truth.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Abu Hamid al-Ghazali
“You only truly possess that which you cannot lose in a shipwreck.”
أبو حامد الغزالي

Susan Sontag
“A large part of the popularity and persuasiveness of psychology comes from its being a sublimated spiritualism: a secular, ostensibly scientific way of affirming the primacy of spirit over matter.”
Susan Sontag, Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors

Amit Ray
“Spirituality is not adopting more beliefs and assumptions but uncovering the best in you.”
Amit Ray, Beautify your Breath - Beautify your Life

John Hodgman
“Houdini, the magician who debunked magic, could not bear to see the great rationalist [Arthur Conan] Doyle enchanted by ghosts and frauds. And so he did what any friend would: He set out to prove spiritualism false and rob his friend Doyle of the only comforting fiction that was keeping him sane. It was the least he could do.”
John Hodgman, That is All

Garth Stein
“However, I don’t understand why people insist on pitting the concepts of evolution and creation against each other. Why can’t they see that spiritualism and science are one? That bodies evolve and souls evolve and the universe is a fluid place that marries them both in a wonderful package called a human being. What’s wrong with that idea?”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Megan Chance
“The material world is simply an expression of the mind; that's what so many fail to see. We're so dependent on what is before us that we discount our intuition. Yet if one dismisses instinct, how can one understand or believe in a world that exists beyond one's sight?”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Megan Chance
“Trying to justify a world we don't hold all the answers to is what bedevils the best of us. Sometimes it's better just to accept that things are as we see them.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Megan Chance
“Logic only tells us what's there; it can't really address what isn't. Even the most devoted empiricist must admit that we have no hope of understanding the universe. Some things are unknowable.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Augustus De Morgan
“I am perfectly convinced that I have both seen, and heard in a manner which should make unbelief impossible, things called spiritual which cannot be taken by a rational being to be capable of explanation by imposture, coincidence, or mistake.”
Augustus De Morgan

Leanna Renee Hieber
“Don't you remember anything?! There is no 'devil.' There is no 'hell.' There is only Unrest. There is no down, only sideways; the transparent beside the opaque, and a thin wall to separate them.”
Leanna Renee Hieber, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker

Megan Chance
“The only truth was whatever you could make someone believe.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Vladimir Nabokov
“I reviewed in thought the modern era of raps and apparitions, beginning with the knockings of 1848, at the hamlet of Hydesville, N.Y., and ending with grotesque phenomena at Cambridge, Mass.; I evoked the anklebones and other anatomical castanets of the Fox sisters (as described by the sages of the University of Buffalo ); the mysteriously uniform type of delicate adolescent in bleak Epworth or Tedworth, radiating the same disturbances as in old Peru; solemn Victorian orgies with roses falling and accordions floating to the strains of sacred music; professional imposters regurgitating moist cheesecloth; Mr. Duncan, a lady medium's dignified husband, who, when asked if he would submit to a search, excused himself on the ground of soiled underwear; old Alfred Russel Wallace, the naive naturalist, refusing to believe that the white form with bare feet and unperforated earlobes before him, at a private pandemonium in Boston, could be prim Miss Cook whom he had just seen asleep, in her curtained corner, all dressed in black, wearing laced-up boots and earrings; two other investigators, small, puny, but reasonably intelligent and active men, closely clinging with arms and legs about Eusapia, a large, plump elderly female reeking of garlic, who still managed to fool them; and the skeptical and embarrassed magician, instructed by charming young Margery's "control" not to get lost in the bathrobe's lining but to follow up the left stocking until he reached the bare thigh - upon the warm skin of which he felt a "teleplastic" mass that appeared to the touch uncommonly like cold, uncooked liver. ("The Vane Sisters")”
Vladimir Nabokov, American Fantastic Tales: Terror and the Uncanny from the 1940's Until Now

Megan Chance
“It seems all spirits need theatrics, eh? Even Christ himself requires incense and holy water. We're a skeptical people. We need convincing.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Paramahamsa Nithyananda
“Actually, life does not need hard work. You should not be afraid of hard work. But life demands only sincere work.Either you do sincere work or you have a guru and surrender to him completely to do the sincere work for you. Fortunately I had amazing gurus who did extreme sincere work on me.”
Paramahamsa Nithyananda

Paramahamsa Nithyananda
“The body which does not get tired, which does not know something called sickness, the mind which does not get bored, which does not know something called frustration, which is constantly intensely excited, joyful, radiating, fully alive with highest possible visualisation, which has the capacity to infuse energy into any being…all this is the result of the sincere work of my gurus.”
Paramahamsa Nithyananda

Paramahamsa Nithyananda
“I am giving you the key to get out of frustration. Listen! Any situation you are in, when you are frustrated, look in and find out ‘What must be the best thing in this situation for which I have aspired this situation in my past? Let me look from that context at this situation.’ You will see you are enjoying exactly what you wanted!”
Paramahamsa Nithyananda

“Menopause is not a medical condition, it is an earthquake, shaking us to our deepest foundations, wiping out the edifices we've so carefully constructed on what we once imagined to be the solid ground of our life.”
Sharon Blackie, If Women Rise Rooted: The Journey to Authenticity and Belonging

Henry David Thoreau
“[Man] needs not only to be spiritualized, but naturalized”

“Ghosts are mere memories of lives passed, granted a reassuring afterlife, manifested by the pleading, grasping, fearful imagination of our own mortality.”
A.J.West, The Spirit Engineer

A.J.  West
“We fear the dead, when really, we ought to be far more afraid of the living.”
A.J.West, The Spirit Engineer

Lorin Morgan-Richards
“There is profound meaning in the game of chess. The board itself is life and death, painted as such in black and white. The pieces are those that make a life fundamentally healthy. The pawns are attributes we gather with nourishment and significance. The knight is our ability to be mobile and travel in whatever form it takes. The rook or castle is a place we can call home and protect ourselves from the elements. The bishop is that of our community and our belonging. The king is our mortal body; without it, we can no longer play the game. The queen is the spirit of the body - what drives our imagination, urges, a life force. A captured queen removes energy from the game, and the player may become complacent. A crowning reminder of the game is that the spirit can be possessed again through our attributes.”
Lorin Morgan-Richards
