    While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.

    Leonardo da Vinci





    and only a few thoughts,
    I have a survival instinct that makes me feel completely different from myself and others.We all have it.
    My individuality transcends even quietly to others and this implies love for the community and human beings.

    The whole life course turns into a journey in which the purpose becomes the same as the journey itself, as futuristic metamorphosed into the whole spiritual philosophy that attests me in this life.
    At the same time, the fear of death is an absurd competition which is no longer important to me.

    The spontaneity of the life we ​​live comes from itself, not from us, and if we try to command with force, through negative emotions or indecision, this process of spontaneity called "life" actually manages to stop it.

    Why should we follow such a negative process that we finally give in to positivity?
    Why look for the secret of life, when you can be fully engaged in a simple mechanism of sufficient self, to be constantly aware of what you are doing and how much importance it has in the end?

    I really do not see the need to continue to live, except through the prism of what life teaches me to listen to (and is so subtle) in order to make the premise that human (modern) civilization may be classified according to its own genetically inscribed senses, in essence of initial construction initiated by the primary order and full of love which means life.
    Every human is a question asked to the Spirit of the Universe,again and again,because every human is an endless row of humans and in all humans together dwelling the Great Human Spirit.

    "To get a human body is a rare thing. Make full use of it. There are four million kinds of lives which a soul can gather. After that one gets a chance to be human, to get a human body. Therefore one should not waste that chance. Every second of human life is valuable. If you don't value this then you will weep in the end. Because you are human, God has given you the power to think and to decide what is good and bad. Therefore you can do the best kind of action. You should never consider yourself weak or a fallen creature. Whatever may have happened up to now may be because you didn't know, but now be careful. After getting a human body, if you don't reach God - then you have sold a diamond at the price of spinach."

    Swami Bramananda Saraswati (quoted by Greg Caton) in an interview

    "Americans love their captivity. There's no responsibility. When you're a captive, you don't have to make a decision about anything, though you have no Liberty. People don't want Liberty. Liberty is nothing but uncertainty. It's much easier to have someone tell you where you'll be, what you'll do and who you'll pay tomorrow than to worry about it yourself. The same goes for what you think"
    --Eustace Mullins


    "The Federal Reserve System is not Federal; it has no reserves; and it is not a system at all, but rather, a criminal syndicate."
    --Eustace Mullins


    "The first task of the Federal Reserve system would be to finance the World War. The European nations were already bankrupt, because they had maintained large standing armies for almost fifty years, a situation created by their own central banks, and therefore they could not finance a war. A central bank always imposes a tremendous burden on the nation for "rearmament" and "defense", in order to create inextinguishable debt, simultaneously creating a military dictatorship and enslaving the people to pay the "interest" on the debt which the bankers have artificially created."
    --Eustace Mullins


    "It is true that the American colonials have "free elections," in which they have the absolute right to vote for one of two opposing candidates, both of whom have been handpicked and financed by the Rockefeller syndicate. This touching evidence of "democracy" serves to convince most Americana that we are indeed a free people. We even have a cracked Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to prove it."
    --Eustace Mullins


    "The increase in the assets of the Federal Reserve Banks from 143 Million dollars in 1913 to 45 Billion dollars in 1949 went directly to the private stockholders of the [Federal Reserve] banks."
    --Eustace Mullins


    "According to Colonel Ely Garrison, in his autobiography and according to the United States Naval Secret Service Report on Paul Warburg, the Russian Revolution had been financed by the Rothschilds and Warburgs, with a member of the Warburg family carrying the actual funds used by Lenin and Trotsky in Stockholm in 1918."

    The great author of the Golden Age of Russian Literature: Ivan Turgenev


    “If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.”
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    “Nature cares nothing for logic, our human logic: she has her own, which we do not recognize and do not acknowledge until we are crushed under its wheel.”
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    "I do not know what the heart of a bad man is like. But i do know what the heart of a good man is like. And it is terrible."
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    "The people who bind themselves to systems are those who are unable to encompass the whole truth and try to catch it by the tail; a system is like the tail of truth, but truth is like a lizard; it leaves its tail in your fingers and runs away knowing full well that it will grow a new one in a twinkling."
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    "Belonging to oneself--the whole essence of life lies in that."
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    "Death's an old joke, but each individual encounters it anew."
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    "Women... can't live with 'em... can't shoot 'em."
    ― Ivan Turgenev

    “We sit in the mud, my friend, and reach for the stars.”
    ― Ivan Turgenev, Fathers and Sons


    “Nothing is worse and more hurtful than a happiness that comes too late. It can give no pleasure, yet it deprives you of that most precious of rights - the right to swear and curse at your fate!”
    ― Ivan S. Turgenev, Rudin

    Frank Zappa Quotes

    "A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open."
    --Frank Zappa

    "You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."
    --Frank Zappa

    "Music is the only religion that delivers the goods."
    --Frank Zappa

    "The universe consists of 5% protons, 5% neutrons, 5% electrons and 85% morons."
    --Frank Zappa

    "The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."
    --Frank Zappa

    "There are only two things to remember. Number one...Don't Stop, and number two...Keep Going!"
    --Frank Zappa

    "Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible."
    --Frank Zappa

    "Modern Americans behave as if intelligence were some sort of hideous deformity."
    --Frank Zappa

    "I'm vile and perverted. I'm obsessed and deranged. I've existed for years but very little has changed. I'm the tool of the government and industry too. For I'm destined to rule and regulate you. You may think I'm pernicious, but you can't look away. I'll make you think I'm delicious with the stuff that I say. I'm the best you can get... have you guessed me yet? I'm the slime oozing out of your TV set."
    --Frank Zappa

    "Schools train people to be ignorant, with style. They give you the equipment that you need to be a functional ignoramus. American schools* do not equip you to deal with things like logic; they don't give you the criteria by which to judge between good and bad in any medium or format; and they prepare you to be a usable victim for military-industrial complex that needs manpower."
    --Frank Zappa

    "I would say that today, dishonesty is the rule, and honesty the exception. It could be, statistically, that more people are honest than dishonest, but the few that really control things are not honest, and that tips the balance."
    --Frank Zappa

    "A wise man once said, never discuss philosophy or politics in a disco environment."
    --Frank Zappa

    Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness.

    I kinda grew up on Cayce readings... recently the ARE has rebooted it's Thought of the Day emails of EC readings.

    This one is from yesterday,

    Quote "This is the first lesson ye should learn:  There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, it doesn't behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us.  This is a universal law, and until one begins to make application of same, one may not go very far in spiritual or soul development."

    Thinking that one has to
    Make an effort to
    Get rid of the illusion is a
    Part of the illusion.
    There is no need get rid of it,
    Just see through it.
