Self-concepts, Worldviews, & Concepts Beyond Words

     "When the ego-sense is relaxed, when a sense of the infinite & eternal replaces our usual narrow self-centeredness with all its passing, unsatisfying fantasies, there is no longer a mental basis for fear, hatred, anxiety, anger, attachment, desire. Instead, the perfectly harmonious functioning of the cosmos operates through us – and the cosmos is always in balance, always at peace with itself. 
     The Christian message is essentially a call to be universal – a call to become cosmically conscious. It is a call to place God at the center of ourselves, not through blind faith but through insightful awareness, not through rigid adherence to ritual and dogma but through graceful expression of cosmic principles. It is a call to ‘be as gods.’” John White

      "It happens completely on its own when a human being questions, wonders, listens, and looks without getting stuck in fear. When self-concern is quiet, in abeyance, heaven and earth are open." Toni Packer
