#1. A Monk's life has to do with simplicity, curiosity and compassion - contrary to the popular notion, it has no direct relation to poverty and seclusion. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#2. Any one of my many shrinks could tell you that I was looking for my father. Wasn't everyone? The explanation didn't quite content me. Not that it seemed wrong: it just seemed too simple. Perhaps the search was really a kind of ritual in which the process was more important than the end. Perhaps it was a kind of quest. Perhaps there was no man at all, but just a mirage conjured by our longing and emptiness. When you go to sleep hungry you dream of eating. When you go to sleep with a full bladder you dream of getting up to pee. When you go to sleep horny you dream of getting laid. Maybe the impossible man was nothing more than a specter made of our own yearning. Maybe he was like the fearless intruder, the phantom rapist women expect to find under their bed or in their closets. Or maybe he was really death, the last lover. - Author: Erica Jong
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Erica Jong
#3. There are major revolutions every few hundred years--humanity seems to depend on things being shaken up from time to time, to remind them of what is the most important. During those periods of conflict, in addition to the chaos which is inevitable, there is also a thread of great enlightenment. The light at the end of the tunnel, as it were. You don't ignore the dark side of truth, but you don't dwell on it to the detriment of forward movement. You have to also focus on what is best in humanity--those aspects of who we are which is luminescent, and perhaps even moreso in contrast to those dark moments. Showing both sides is what becomes incredibly important. - Author: K.J. Wetherholt
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by K.J. Wetherholt
#4. Once there is realization of self challenge, ego versus soul, competition with others becomes futile. - Author: T.F. Hodge
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by T.F. Hodge
#5. The search for magic in life is not a search for truth. If anything, it's the opposite. You don't want to see behind the curtain. You don't want explanations. As profound as the truth may be, odds are it's going to break your heart. You learn how they pull a rabbit out of a hat and you'll never see it the same way again.

The magic is gone forever. - Author: Alex Hyland
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Alex Hyland
#6. A 'Magik' session is a journey through different stages of emotions and the 'Search for Sunrise' is more chilling music for when you come home after a party or when you are just about to go to one. - Author: Tiesto
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Tiesto
#7. I turned to you
on the fourth of July
and the sky was quiet.
I see the flags waving
but I promise you,
the breeze is a trick. - Author: Casey Renee Kiser
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Casey Renee Kiser
#8. Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor - by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world.
"He will take no man's money dishonestly and no man's insolence without a due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him.
"The story is this man's adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in. - Author: Raymond Chandler
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Raymond Chandler
#9. It's easy to get carried away in the search for "experience." I think that people boast of "experience" as if all experience is good. The whole world will tell you that all mistakes are good and all experiences are worthwhile. Nevertheless, I believe in an equilibrium. I always say "throw yourself out there" but at the same time, I want to tell you, that there are so many experiences in life that you're better off not experiencing. Experience is not always a positive thing, it can affect a person in such a way that it is like finding a tulip trampled under foot, run over by bicycles and spit on. And then the tulip is set on a windowsill for sale with a sign that says "I have had so much experience, that's why I'm more expensive." But the truth is, there's nothing wrong with being that tulip in the field, untouched and caressed by moonlight. Yes, we have the choice to make mistakes, but we also have the choice to choose what things we allow in to make marks upon our lives. It is okay to be untouched by darkness. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#10. Negativity is a debilitating disease. It is a slow and painful way to experience life. It attacks the immune system, creates anxiety, and can lead to loneliness and depression. Finding your inner harmony is the quickest way to alleviate the methodical destruction of this dark energy - Author: Gary Hopkins
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Gary Hopkins
#11. For the last six weeks I have found myself pestered by some characters in search of an author ... - Author: Sylvia Townsend Warner
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Sylvia Townsend Warner
#12. Searching for truth without skepticism, is like having sex without a genital. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#13. Tantra is not sexual yoga. When the word tantra is used in the West, very often people immediately associate it with some kind of sexual yoga in which you use sex as a vehicle for enlightenment. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Frederick Lenz
#14. Universal education through schooling is not feasible. It would be no more feasible if it were attempted by means of alternative institutions built on the style of present schools. Neither new attitudes of teachers toward their pupils nor the proliferation of educational hardware or software (in classroom or bedroom), nor finally the attempt to expand the pedagogue's responsibility until it engulfs his pupils' lifetimes will deliver universal education. The current search for new educational funnels must be reversed into the search for their institutional inverse: educational webs which heighten the opportunity for each one to transform each moment of his living into one of learning, sharing, and caring. - Author: Ivan Illich
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Ivan Illich
#15. The Enlightenment (The beginning of) a way of pursuing knowledge with a tradition of criticism and seeking good explanations instead of reliance on authority. - Author: David Deutsch
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by David Deutsch
#16. The nature of search engines is that they can make a major issue out of something small that no person would otherwise be able to find. - Author: Max Mosley
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Max Mosley
#17. Letting go is hard for me. I have spent too many anxious moments and sleepless nights in worry over what would happen if I let go. Much like being part of a search-and-rescue effort, I would find myself always searching for the unexpected spins in life while preparing to rescue the outcome. - Author: Eve M. Harrell
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Eve M. Harrell
#18. The version of technology we live with most closely resembles the one that Scots such as James Watt organized and perfected. It rests on certain basic principles that the Scottish Enlightenment enshrined: common sense, experience as our best source of knowledge, and arriving at scientific laws by testing general hypotheses through individual experiment and trial and error. - Author: Arthur Herman
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Arthur Herman
#19. Those who search for truth are too conscious of the maze to be hard on others. - Author: E. M. Forster
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by E. M. Forster
#20. Marriage is very secure. It is safe. There is no growth in it. One is simply stuck. Marriage is a sexual arrangement; intimacy is a search for love. Marriage is a sort of prostitution, a permanent sort. One has got married to a woman or to a man - it is a permanent prostitution. The arrangement is economical, not psychological, not of the heart. - Author: Rajneesh
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Rajneesh
#21. NirVana chakra is the chakra of neuroplasticity. It allows the brain to continuously change and adapt, and build new neural connections as needed, and abandoning the pathways that drags people down. - Author: Amit Ray
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Amit Ray
#22. Anybody or anything can become enlightened because enlightenment is the very nature of existence itself. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Frederick Lenz
#23. This death cult has no reason and is beyond negotiation. This is what makes it so frightening. This is what causes so many to engage in a sort of mental diversion. They don't want to confront this horror. So they rush off in search of more comprehensible things to hate. - Author: David Brooks
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by David Brooks
#24. Pessimists never go on a voyage of discovery, equally so they never leave the shoreline in search of new horizons. - Author: Stephen Richards
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Stephen Richards
#25. Life for the unhappy is an endless search for 'the good parent,' one who will truly love him instead of making him afraid ... - Author: Lucy Freeman
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Lucy Freeman
#26. The Enlightenment, finally, invented progressive 'history' as an inner-worldly purgatory in order to develop the conditions of possibility of a perfected 'society'. This provided the required setting for the aggressive social theology of the Modern Age to drive out the political theology of the imperial eras. What was the Enlightenment in its deep structure if not an attempt to translate the ancient rhyme on learning and suffering - mathein pathein - into a collective and species-wide phenomenon? Was its aim not to persuade the many to expose themselves to transitional ordeals that would precede the great optimization of all things? - Author: Peter Sloterdijk
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Peter Sloterdijk
#27. Like any overt school of mysticism, a movement seeking to achieve a vicious goal has to invoke the higher mysteries of an incomprehensible authority. An unread and unreadable book serves this purpose. It does not count on men's intelligence, but on their weaknesses, pretensions and fears. It is not a tool of enlightenment, but of intellectual intimidation. It is not aimed at the reader's understanding, but at his inferiority complex.
An intelligent man will reject such a book with contemptuous indignation, refusing to waste his time on untangling what he perceives to be gibberish - which is part of the book's technique: the man able to refute its arguments will not (unless he has the endurance of an elephant and the patience of a martyr). A young man of average intelligence - particularly a student of philosophy or of political science - under a barrage of authoritative pronouncements acclaiming the book as "scholarly," "significant," "profound," will take the blame for his failure to understand. More often than not, he will assume that the book's theory has been scientifically proved and that he alone is unable to grasp it; anxious, above all, to hide his inability, he will profess agreement, and the less his understanding, the louder his agreement - while the rest of the class are going through the same mental process. Most of them will accept the book's doctrine, reluctantly and uneasily, and lose their intellectual integrity, condemning themselves to a chronic fog of - Author: Ayn Rand

#28. While I may not be able to describe to you exactly what enlightenment is like, I can tell you that it is wonderful beyond understanding. The experience of enlightenment frees your mind from painful and limited states of awareness. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Frederick Lenz
#29. Glass spotted another dog by the creek, and this one he did not spare. Soon he had a fire burning in the center of the hut. Part of the dog he roasted on a spit over the fire and part he boiled in the kettle. He threw corn into the pot with the dog meat and continued his search through the village. - Author: Michael Punke
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Michael Punke
#30. Abhyasa (practice) is a dedicated, unswerving, constant, and vigilant search into a chosen subject pursued against all odds in the face of repeated failures, for indefinitely long periods of time. - Author: B.K.S. Iyengar
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#31. Our search for certainty rests in our attempts at understanding the history of all individual selves and all civilizations. Beyond that, there is only awe. - Author: Julian Jaynes
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Julian Jaynes
#32. Faith does not protect you. Medicine and airbags ... Those are the things that protect you. God does not protect you. Intelligence protects you. Enlightenment. Put your faith in something with tangible results. How long has it been since someone walked on water? Modern miracles belong to science.. Computers, vaccines, space stations ... Even the devine miracle of creation. Matter from nothing ... In a lab. Who needs God? No! Science is God! - Author: Dan Brown
Search Of Enlightenment quotes by Dan Brown
#33. Short of dragging her to the water kicking and screaming-and destroying Emma's trust in him-Galen made the snap decision to leave them both in Rayna's care. And the word "care" can be very subjective where his sister is concerned.
But they couldn't waste any more time; with Yudor's head start on them, a search party might have already been dispatched, and if not, then Galen knew it was coming. And he couldn't-wouldn't-risk them finding Emma. Beautiful, stubborn Half-Breed Emma.
And he's a little perturbed that Nalia would.
The three of them plod holes in the sand reaching up to Emma's back porch, alongside a recent trail of someone else's-probably Emma's-footsteps leading from the beach. Galen knows this moment will always be burned into his memory. The moment when his brother, the Triton king, put on human clothes and walked up to a house built by humans, squinting in the broad daylight with eyes unaccustomed to the sun.
What will he say to Nalia? What will he do? - Author: Anna Banks
