“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach”—Carl Young (via allcityhype)
“There literally are different worlds in which we live. The macroscopic world that we see is the world of ourselves, is the world of our atoms, the world of our nuclei. These are each totally different worlds. They have their own language, they have their own mathematics. They’re not just smaller. Each is totally different, but they’re complimentary because I am my atoms, but I am also myself. I am also my macroscopic physiology. It’s all true. They’re just different levels of truth. The deepest level of truth covered by science and by philosophy is the fundamental truth of unity. At that deepest sub-level of our reality you and I are literally one, one, one.”—John Hagelin (via lucifelle)
“I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age.
A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.”—(via tatteredbanners)
“All education should strive to help those receiving it to gain enough freedom in relation to works of art to themselves become writers and artists.”—Psychoanalyst and University of Paris literature professor Pierre Baynard in the excellentHow To Talk About Books You Haven’t Read (via explore-blog)
“The great decisions of human life have as a rule far more to do with the instincts and other mysterious unconscious factors than with conscious will and well-meaning reasonableness. The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. Each of us carries his own life-form—an indeterminable form which cannot be superseded by any other.”—Carl Jung (via nirvikalpa)
