“I enjoy experiencing a taste of the feeling that I am infinite. But you have to risk going into a sphere where you can‘t quite remember exactly who you are. You have to negate it anytime you feel the “I“ emerging as a fixed, independent, absolute thing, and then negate it again.”
Recorded at: The Great Rethinking Prophets Conference Oxford, England
“We need cool heroes today—We don’t need hot heroes. By cool, I mean non-violent; I mean those who can be forceful, intelligent, just, and insightful, and speak up loudly and clearly but without getting angry—without indulging in hatred. You can be just as tough, but more effectively tough. It’s like a martial art.” – Robert Thurman
