Rabindranath Tagore

George Bernard Shaw

“Be present at every breath. Do not let your attention wander for the duration of a single breath.”

– Gujduvani (12th c. Sufi master)

“But the man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less cocksure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable Mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend.”

~Aldous Huxley: The Doors of Perception

“Consciousness is the part of a person that can grow into something more. When it becomes continuous for him, then he rises up to another, higher and subtler state. He never ceases to rise higher.”
