    A word spoken to me via ET contact:

    "Dogmatics"

    not sure if anyone would find it interesting but I liked it as I had never heard it used before. The ET speaking such was very wise about the ideas behind it.

    Whoa! I have read and observed similar quotes like this one a number of times over the years but sometimes they hit closer to home then others!

    That quote was a thought bomb that exploded right next to me. Am I going to be its casualty? I hope so!

    "If you do not value the accuracy of history, something is wrong."
    -Telepathic encounter of mine listening to two beings talk

    "Anything you value can be an object of manipulation to you, as you can fear losing it. fear is often a stepping stone to greater things for the darker side(greater being subjective)"
    -More from this encounter convo between US gov and ETs (and me mainly listening, a great treat, so lucky to have this position i am in right now - although this line wa spoken to me after an example).

    I will make a thread in the ET section for my telepathic encounters though(Once I have the will to muster it).. Might work better that way.

    It has been proven psychologically that human beings can only appreciate or apprise, i.e. comprehend and understand, something new, if they can succeed in raising up the subconscious immured in their brain cells into their higher consciousness. If this cannot be achieved, then all preaching is useless. And even the eye has first to learn how to see everything new; it too must therefore be awoken from its latency before it can grasp the seen. Above all, there must be readiness to consider even supposed wonders as the forerunners of forthcoming realities, for only thus can the foundations be laid upon which rational mind can calculate and analyse.

    I've never been big on quotes or philosophy, honestly. If you're having a problem in life, and a quote makes you feel better, I would submit that that problem wasn't much of a problem to begin with. Not trying to be a downer here. Just my 2 cents.

    I'll have to disagree. I've gained spiritually and intellectually tremendously from quotes. It helps me 'remember' things embedded into my soul... And I'm not in agreeance with the quote from celine either. To philosophize is a mark of an intelligent person IMHO.

    Ok

    As I was reading this thread I was thinking of a friend of mine and of some events that took place not too long ago. His brother's girlfriend had broken up with the brother after 3 years together, and he was despondent. And he (my friend) kept saying to me: "Hank, I don't understand it, I've been giving my brother the best advice lately, I've been administering wisdom left n right. It just goes right through him."

    I understood perfectly. The most severe and painful life experiences are those of the heart. And the heart, as we all know, does not respond to logic. A quote or a philosophy will, at best, inspire us intellectually, and usually only for a short period of time. My experience anyway...

    Think back to your greatest heartache. Maybe consider love lost, or a partner who has stopped loving you. I think most of us would agree that it is probably the most painful experience one can have. That type of pain is so deep, so profound, that a quote or philosophy, no matter how clever, will never reach it. Not in a million years.

    So I stand by what I said: if a quote or a philosophy truly helps alleviate or illuminate an issue or problem you might be having, it likely wasn't a serious one to begin with.

    With Respect,
    Hank

    I disagree that the heart is not intellectual in ways. I've had in depth experiences with my heart chakra being dimmed and made big/functional quite instantly. It affects intelligence in ways observably. Also the heart has neurons... So it can think too in ways and quite possibly be the connection to your souls wisdom in ways(mainly crown of course)..

    The heart is THE intelligence. The heart transmits vastly more signals to the brain than does the brain to the heart. A simple physiological fact. The heart develops neurons before the brain does. The heart (and the body) is the mind.

    The heart is the brains of the soul. And you can quote me on that.

    In a manner of speaking, you're right.

    Quotes and/or the philosophy they allude to have little to do with illumination or 'education', they are more about an affirmation of an achieved disposition. Even the quotes that seem to push others in a particular direction or assist in 'aha!' moments are more of a supplement to a disposition or direction that they had already engaged or pursued.

    Especially pertaining to the act of writing quotes; there is a degree of finesse to it (though more half assed and prosaic than poetic) but there is an equal (if not greater) element of mental masturbation and aggrandizement. Individual results may vary. ^_^

    ''For every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

    A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

    A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

    A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

    A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

    A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.'' ( Ecclesiastes 3:1)

    Great idea for a thread.

    I found this sobering inscription reminding us all of our own mortality on the tomb of Thomas Gooding (d. 1600) in Norwich Cathederal. In modern English in part it reads:

    Quote ...As you are now, I once was. As I am now, you will be...
    The full six line inscription is here.
