"Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is."
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
- Mark Twain
"You’re not really an adult at all. You’re just a tall child holding a beer, having a conversation you don’t understand."
"Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance."
"To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people you see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform."
"Many of the world’s big problems are caused by our willingness to do things that go against our core values out of fear of not fitting in. By having the courage to overcome peer pressure and learning to be your true self, you just might be saving the world."
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."
