"In a dream you have a sense that you're alive yet you remain unconscious, and the consciousness is left in an state of illusion that the dream is false. Through the transitory illusion of death we remove the realm of the unconscious and are left only with the sense of feeling alive, and the consciousness is left in a state of illusion that the dream is real. The dream changes planes, so to speak, and one begins a new subjective experience. If we are to say that the life we experience is but a dream within a dream, then that cycle is the eternal."

"You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.

And at one point you’d hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.

And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.

And you’ll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they’ll be comforted to know your energy’s still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you’re just less orderly.

Amen."

"Wherever life takes you, leave the place shaking, disrupted and trying to imagine what it was like before you came. Be a force for change. For pondering. And re-pondering. For love and the belief in the good of people. Go forth and be a force of the awesome. Do epic, terrifying, unheard of shit. Whatever makes you happy. And drugs. And other "bad" things. And fall in love. If nothing else, fall in love."

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…"

"This world we are in is fully animate, it has been constructed by an
“Ability” so powerful it has missed no details. Challenge in life equals
substantial growth. It is after all the constant lifting of heavier weights
that makes a person strong. Those weights we must lift are actually
other life forms that are very dense, slow moving vibrations. These
weights when attached to us make us wait right here on Earth,
burdened down and unable to fly. Those of us who are Divine Positive
are attracted to the Light thus we must get lite by releasing the
weight."

Loneliness is an illusion, people try to search for themselves in other people or objects and it’s pointless. If you are with yourself, you are never lonely, if you hide from yourself you will always be lonely no matter how many people you try to cover that up with. Loneliness is a state of mind, not a situation that the world throws at you."
