Let us accept truth, even when it surprises us and alters our views.

The world is like a ride at an amusement park.  And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that’s how powerful our minds are.  And the ride goes up and down and round and round.  It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly colored , and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while.  Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride?  And other people have remembered, and they come back to us.  They say, 'Hey! Dont worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride...'...It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.”

~Bill Hicks

Week of 11/12/07:

“Do not try to know the truth, for knowledge by the mind is not true knowledge. But you can know what is not true—which is enough to liberate you from the false. The idea that you know what is true is dangerous, for it keeps you imprisoned in the mind. It is when you do not know, that you are free to investigate. And there can be no salvation, without investigation, because non investigation is the main cause of bondage.”

~Nisargadatta Maharaj
from "I Am That"
