• “Between skin and skin, there is only light.”

― John Fowles, The Magus

  • Common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.

—Vladimir Nabokov

  • “I am nothing. I’m like someone who’s been thrown into the ocean at night, floating all alone. I reach out, but no one is there. I call out, but no one answers. I have no connection to anything.”

― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

  • Human beings are a part of the whole, called by us “the universe,” a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of our consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our own personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

—Albert Einstein

  • "Everything is energy. Physical matter is energy. Thoughts are energy. Feelings are energy. Every image, thought, feeling, and belief you consciously or unconsciously hold about yourself carries a specific energy pattern to it. These energy patterns are complex and very real. Collectively they make up your experience of self, which is your inner reality. This ongoing inner reality creates the outer reality you live with everyday."

— Pandit Rajmani Tigunait
