“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“One thing: you have to walk,
and create the way by your walking;
you will not find a ready-made path.
It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth.
You will have to create the path by walking yourself;
the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you.
It is just like the sky: the birds fly,
but they don’t leave any footprints.
You cannot follow them;
there are no footprints left behind.”
“I once listened to an Indian on television
say that God was in the wind and the water,
and I wondered at how beautiful that was
because it meant
you could swim in Him
or have Him brush your face in a breeze.”
“We are all connected;
To each other, biologically.
To the earth, chemically.
To the rest of the universe atomically.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson
“The power of human thought grows exponentially
with the number of minds that share that thought.”
