LIBERATION from all ILLUSIONS through
AUTHENTIC PROCESSES of DISILLUSIONMENT
"People don´t want to hear the truth,
because they don´t want their illusions destroyed."
- Friedrich Nietzsche-
"The greatest obstacle to discovering the shape of the earth,
the continents, and the oceans was not ignorance but the illusion of knowledge.”
- Daniel J. Boorstin-
"One day it will have to be officially admitted
that what we have christened reality
is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.”
"Telling the truth and making someone cry is better
than telling a lie and making someone smile.”
LIBERATION from ILLUSIONS
"Wherever You look for truth,
for love, for intelligence, and for benevolence
neither any God, nor any government,
nor any priests and nor any doctor will be able to help you:
everything will be in vain.
You must start with yourself, you must change first:
this is the inevitable law.
You cannot change the mirror image without changing your face.
Realize first that the world is only a reflection of your own,
Stop looking for errors in the mirror image. "
"Pleasure can rest on illusion, but happiness only on truth.“
"Human beings prefer to hear a lie
rather to receive a rejection. "
-Marcus Tullius Cicero
UPGRADING and REFINEMENT
"Realizing the ephemeral nature of the world
by remembering one's self is a means
to awaken the Self from this sea of illusions as from a dream. "
"By destroying the maya-samsara-sea
through Brahman knowledge is gained,
Therefore, whosoever finds kaivalya (singularity)
Obtains Absolute Consciousness. "
