"We can sit in a temple or a cave in India and get so holy, so clear and radiant, the light is pouring out of us. But when we come out of that cave, when we leave that supportive structure that worked with our strengths but seldom confronted us with our weaknesses, our old habit patterns tend to reappear, and we come back into the same old games, the games we were sure we had finished with."
- Ram Dass (via thegoldeneternity)
"Man is himself the creator of his heaven or hell, and there are no demons except his own follies."
- Eliphas Levi (via theculturecarnival)
