Progress is born of doubt and inquiry. The Church never doubts, never inquires. To doubt is heresy, to inquire is to admit that you do not know—the Church does neither.
By Its too bad that science has become as dogmatic as religion the last 100 years. Robert Ingersoll, b. 1833 (via whats-out-there)
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
By Carl Jung (via sweetlotus)
Whereever you are, you are one with the clouds and one with the sun and the stars you see. You are one with everything. That is more true than I can say, and more true than you can hear.
By Shunryu Suzuki (via thecalminside)
