"To my mind, Taoism is the most refined ideal of human existence: it is open-ended, it always yields to a good laugh, it's not dogmatic, it's rooted in Nature, it sees the world as shells of energy that can be manipulated and cultivated." - Terence #McKenna Terence McKenna on Taoism (Rare video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRfH0LocDUU #QuotesMoP #Taoism

A collective psychosis. “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” - Edward L. Bernays (1891-1995), "Propaganda" #matrix

"The Power of Now" Excerpt 5 by Eckhart #Tolle Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship. It comes between you and yourself, between you and your fellow man and woman, between you and nature, between you and God. It is this screen of thought that creates the illusion of separateness, the illusion that there is you and a totally separate "other." You then forget the essential fact that, underneath the level of physical appearances and separate forms, you are one with all that is. By "forget," I mean that you can no longer feel this oneness as self-evident reality. You may believe it to be true, but you no longer know it to be true. A belief may be comforting. Only through your own experience, however, does it become liberating. #BookExcerptsMoP #ArtMoP
