Whoever sees all beings in the soul and the soul in all beings…
What delusion or sorrow is there for one who sees unity?
It has filled all. It is radiant, incorporeal, invulnerable…
Wise, intelligent, encompassing, self-existent,
It organizes objects throughout eternity.

Upanishads (circa 800 – 200 B.C.E.)

It is only when everything, even love fails that with a flash, man finds out how vain, how dream-like is this world. Then he catches a glimpse of the beyond. It is only by giving up this world that the other comes, never through holding on to this one.

Vivekananda (1863 – 1902)

It is necessary to study the mind itself, mind studying mind. We know that there is the power of the mind called reflective. I am talking to you… at the same time I am standing aside, as it were, a second person, and knowing and hearing that I am talking. You work and think at the same time, another portion of your mind stands by and sees that you are talking. The powers of the mind should be concentrated and turned back upon itself, and as the darkest places reveal their secrets before the penetrating rays of the sun, so will this concentrated mind penetrate its own innermost secrets… it will all be revealed to us.

Vivekananda (1863 – 1902)

Death is not an event in life… we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. Our life has no end in the way in which our visual field has no limits.

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 – 1951)

The center of every man’s existence is a dream. Death, disease, and insanity are merely material accidents, like a toothache or a twisted ankle. That these brutal forces always besiege and often capture the citadel does not prove that they are the citadel.

G. K. Chesterton (1874 – 1936)
