“All that we see or seem
is but a dream within a dream.”
“Chaos is merely order
waiting to be deciphered.”
“The eye sees
only what the mind
is prepared to comprehend.”
“One moment the world is as it is.
The next, it is something entirely different.
Something it has never been before.”
“Dream delivers us to dream,
and there is no end to illusion.
Life is like a train of moods
like a string of beads,
and, as we pass through them,
they prove to be many-colored lenses
which paint the world their own hue. . . . ”
“The master said, “You must write what you see.”
But what I see does not move me.
The master answered, “Change what you see.” “
“You are one of the rare people
who can separate your observation
from your preconception.
You see what is,
where most people
see what they expect.”
“The closer you come to knowing
that you alone create the world of your experience,
the more vital it becomes
for you to discover
just who is doing the creating.”
