    "Life in its manifestation is vibration.
    Electricity is vibration.
    But vibration that is creative is one thing.
    Vibration that is destructive is another.
    Yet they are from the same source
    ."

    Edgar Cayce reading 1861-16

    This is interesting, Tesla said something similar.

    “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group.”
    - - Franklin D. Roosevelt


    “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.”
    - - Benito Mussolini


    “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. The bamboozle has captured us. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

    Thought this was a pertinent quote for the times:


    'Any society that cannot tolerate those who choose to peacefully live outside of its control is an insecure society. All governments mandate obedience for the illusion of security. But in truth, the desire for security and the feeling of insecurity are really the same thing.
    To hold your breath is to lose your breath. To cling to life is to lose touch with it. A society based on the quest for security is nothing but a breath-holding contest in which everyone is stressed, neurotic, and enslaved to the delusion that “with enough control and obedience, we will finally know peace and freedom' Humberto Braga

    "The Greatest Enemy of Knowledge is not ignorance, it is the Illusion of Knowledge."
    - Daniel J. Boorstin, Historian
    Bumping this profoundly underrated quote. It points to the very heart of the illusion humanity finds itself stuck in. Seemingly impossible to escape from, yet resolved as swiftly as removing a tablecloth and shaking it out, if only we simply wake up and become aware of it, instead of being in conflict with it.

    “Whatever you think appears in consciousness as a show. That’s the way thought works to display its content, as a show of imagination. Therefore if you think the observer is separate from the observed, it’s going to appear in consciousness as two different entities. The point is that the words will seem to be coming from the observer who knows, who sees, and therefore they are the truth, they are a description of the truth. That’s the illusion.”

    David Bohm (1917 – 1992)

    “Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?" That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.”

    ― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

    Since the very earliest time
    When both people and animals lived on earth
    A person could become an animal
    and an animal could become a human being.
    Sometimes they were people
    and sometimes animals
    and there was no difference.
    All spoke the same language
    That was the time when words were like magic.
    The human mind had mysterious powers.
    A word spoken by chance might have strange consequences.
    It would suddenly come alive
    and what people wanted to happen could happen--
    all you had to do was say it.
    Nobody could explain this:
    That's the way it was.
    Nalungiaq, Inuit woman interviewed by ethnologist Knud Rasmussen in the early twentieth century.

    "Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not find yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful; he cuts away here, he smoothes there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer, until a lovely face has grown upon his work.

    So do you also; cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is in shadow; labor to make all one glow of beauty and never cease chiseling your statue until there shall shine out on you from it the godlike splendor of virtue, until you shall see the perfect goodness established in the stainless shrine."
