Living Enlightenment 2 Ppt

  1. 1. (to be played while people are entering & sitting down - plays as one slide dissolving into another) pre-presentation quotes
  2. 2. “In my life , I don’t want to be a victim, and I don’t want to be a tragedy. I want triumph…spiritual triumph…with humility, grace and beauty, elegance, and excellence.” - Carlos Santana
  3. 3. “Creation means standing on the boundary between being and non-being and stepping into the abyss of nothingness. The very prospect appalls us…. Little decisions we can handle, but how to set the course of civilization by shaping our own consciousness and the consciousness of others?” −- Beatrice Bruteau, Christian Contemplative, Scientist and Philosopher
  4. 4. “The ancestor of every action is a thought.” −Ralph Waldo Emerson
  5. 5. “Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” - Albert Einstein
  6. 6. “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” −Plato
  7. 7. “The only hope for this crazy world is that a large but not necessarily overwhelming proportion of humanity shall realize the unborn, the timeless… shall realize it and live it” −Douglas Harding
  8. 8. “Revolution, total revolution, implies experimenting with the impossible. And when an individual takes a step in the direction of the new, the impossible, the whole human race travels through that individual.” - Vimala Thakar, Indian Spiritual Master and Social Activist
  9. 9. “The most effective way to do it, is to do it.” - Amelia Earhart
  10. 10. “Like art, Revolutions come from combining what exists into what has never existed before” - Gloria Steinam
  11. 11. “Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” - Max Plank, German theoretical Physicist who originated quantum theory
  12. 12. “Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out in the ocean.” - Christopher Reeve
  13. 13. “Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  14. 14. “Gloriously situated by life at this critical point in the evolution of mankind, what ought we to do? We hold Earths’ future in our hands. What shall we decide?” - Teilhard de Chardin, French Christian Theologian
  15. 15. “This is our challenge at the beginning of the twenty-first century - we need to find the courage to see our own spiritual yearnings in the biggest possible context, in such a way that is going to compel us to finally transcend our self-concern. We need to find the heart to come together in such a way that will enable us to face the challenges before us. And to do this, we need a new spirituality. We need a new enlightenment.” - Andrew Cohen
  16. 16. “And so what is it that you will do with your one wild and precious Life?” - Mary Oliver, poet
  17. 17. “I screamed, you bet I did. I mean totally let loose, I clenched my fist, and arched my back and screamed and howled and yelled. When I am focused, there is not one single thing, person, anything that can stand in the way of my doing something. There is not. If I want something bad enough; there are No Limits.” - Michael Phelps
  18. 18. “Natures unfolding in short, has a direction -- greater and greater creative diversification. The pageant of evolution is the progressive manifestation of the expansive, self differentiating energy, the creative urge…” - Ken Wilber, author and founder of integral philosophy
  19. 19. “In an evolutionary context, the goal of the spiritual life is not peace; it's perpetual development. Evolutionary enlightenment is about the ecstasy that compels us to create the future. And it's not a future that's going to unfold by itself while we go back to sleep. It's a future that we forge the hard way through direct, conscious, intentional engagement with the life-process itself.” −- Andrew Cohen
  20. 20. “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.” - Amelia Earhart
  21. 21. “We see that any single event has global repercussions…whatever you do in one place at one time, will have repercussions to all other times and all other places.” - Ervin Lazlo
