“Honesty and courage are the two qualities that mark the honor of the true warrior, for in the final analysis honesty and courage are but the two sides of the one coin we term honor. It takes courage to be honest with yourself, and without honesty there can be no real courage, only a false bravado to cover the deep fear that someone is going to find out something about you that you would prefer others, including yourself, not to know.
But where is the honor in living a life that is based upon lies, pretenses, and the cowardice born of fear? How can we ever hope to claim our power as warriors if we have no honesty and no courage?
To have power we must have knowledge, but since knowledge can only be acquired through life’s experiences, how are we to do this if we refuse to acknowledge who and what we really are? Yet, realize that to acknowledge the worst in ourselves, and not to hate ourselves for that, and to acknowledge the very best in us, and to believe that we are worthy of such fine qualities, requires unequivocal honesty and unwavering courage.
The only way in which to acquire honesty is to accept the fact that the world around us is our mirror, and the only way in which to acquire courage, is to hold onto the knowledge that if you do not like the reflections you see, then you do have the power and the ability to change those reflections by changing yourself.” ~Theun Mares
“There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.” ~Bruce Lee
“To transform breakdowns into breakthroughs is the whole function of a master. The psychotherapist simply patches you up. That is his function. He is not there to transform you. You need a meta-psychology, the psychology of the buddhas.
It is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously. It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough…
Your chaos is very ancient – for many, many lives you have been in chaos. It is thick and dense. It is almost a universe in itself. So when you enter into it with your small capacity, of course there is danger. But without facing this danger nobody has ever become integrated, nobody has ever become an individual, indivisible. Zen, or meditation, is the method which will help you to go through the chaos, through the dark night of the soul, balanced, disciplined, alert.
The dawn is not far away, but before you can reach the dawn, the dark night has to be passed through. And as the dawn comes closer, the night will become darker.” ~Osho
“Your challenge in this cycle is to remain aware of why you are here. There will be many distractions, much disturbing news to process, and many nagging thoughts of self-doubt. There will be a tendency to get caught up in the minutia of outer world happenstance. Knowing that these things are probable, you will find it easier to step back and invite in the big picture view. When you consistently do this, your inner wisdom will remind you of your higher purpose and why this life is so precious…
Prepare to let go of long-held ideas about what your purpose is… Now is the time to re-evaluate all things and find deeper meanings… This is the time to set aside false notions about who you are. It is the time to embrace your divine nature and your true path.”
“There are people out there who are watching this who think that I’m totally insane, and I don’t care… I went through three stages. I began to think, I’m losing my mind — that was Stage 1. Stage 2 — I became convinced that I had lost my mind. Now, I’m in Stage 3 — I’m sane and the rest of the world is nuts!” ~Bob Dean
“Niara enlisted in the Air Force back in 1979 and became a surface to air missle/anit-aircraft artillary radar specialist based at various bases around the U.S. She was based for approximately one year at Nellis Air Force Base working out at the Tonopah Test Range. And that is where these incidents occurred.
Although her experiences are hard to believe, her down-to-earth way of relating the information if anything, underscores how very real they were and the depth of depravity and cruelty implied in her treatment brings to light some very sinister dealings going on that include a race or races of ETs and the military, that if true, couldn’t be more scandalous.
If and when government disclosure ever becomes a reality this is the type of story that will be very hard to explain let alone acknowledge by those coming forward at that time.” ~Kerry Cassidy
“The larger issue here, however, is not this isolated decision by the FDA but rather the question: Why do unelected regulatory bureaucrats have such power in the first place?
While we may elect lawmakers in America today, those lawmakers have long since delegated the real “laws of the land” to bureaucratic agencies like the FDA which are run by unelected politicians who simply write their own laws and regulations without the approval of Congress…
[T]he delegation of powers to rogue federal agencies (FDA, DEA, DHS, TSA, etc.) results in the nation being ruled by tyrannical bureaucrats who operate outside the authority of Congress. Under this power structure, for example, the FDA could simply announce one day that “all vitamins are illegal,” without Congressional approval and without any new laws being debated or signed into law. The delegation of powers to agencies like the FDA is the granting of dictatorial police state powers over entire sectors of our society.”
