“You just can’t. One has to be brought to juxtaposition – to see that you play two roles, live a duality, and have two separate lives in one.
We live out the mechanical life, and have no choice in that whatsoever. The field of light gives the impression that there is nothing but choice – everything in the Maia is about choice, all these choices.
Just because you know this and live your strategy, you don’t escape the Maia, but live in it seamlessly, because when you then understand the mechanics of the Maia, it becomes seamless. Then you can have the other side of the juxtaposition by being aware of your helplessness. Wait for what you need to come to you, despite what the mirror shows.
Then you get to live out both sides. We are two-faced beings and are always in these two different realms at the same time.
You don’t need to struggle in the light.
You’ll never find reassurance there.
You can only get that from the mechanical side.” – Ra Uru Hu
This line of enforcement. The discipline to maintain right action.
Until you get to the 6th line the fates are just throwing spanners in the mix. They are just getting in your way so you’ll simply differentiate. When it gets to the 6th line it gets right back down to the basics, right action is everything. The only way you are here to go through experience is as right action. There is no other way for the 6th line. 6th line beings are the most vulnerable beings on the planet. These are the good that die young and the old that die too soon. 6th line; fragile as fragile can be.
The enforcement of right action is never the privilege of a 6th line being in their first 30 years of their life because in those first 30 years they don’t live out their 6th line theme but a 3rd line of trial and error, pessimism, martyrdom, and mistakes, and all of that. And every 6th line being when they get to their post Kiron phase in life has to meet exactly the same forces they met in that first Saturn cycle, but they have to meet it with the enforcement of right action. Oh, what a trap! Those forces that you met before you went up on the roof they are waiting. It’s like those animals that can’t climb up the building but they know that at some point you have to come down that roof and they are all down there waiting. And it’s not the same people. It’s something to really grasp. It will be the same kind of archetypes. And you will see very clearly as a 6th line being that those forces that were there in that first Saturn cycle, the forces that tempted you with love, with this, with that, the forces that hurt you, that pleased you or whatever the case may be, they return. They return and how you deal with them then? This is what it is to be a 6th line being. The role model. The ultimate example. The ultimate example of what it is to live as yourself and this can only be done through right action. Right action is the action of the vehicle. It’s about authority. It’s about strategy.” – Ra Uru Hu

“When you begin the experiment of being yourself, you will see clearly that it will bring the appropriate response and reward. In grasping your design, in grasping your Type, see clearly how important it is for the children around you that they are not forced or conditioned to be something other than what they are.
The first seven years of life is when we experience our deepest conditioning. By the time that we reach seven years of age, we have the equipment necessary to survive in the world. That equipment that we have for survival is the conditioned equipment of the notself that dominates our existence. We were conditioned by our mothers and our fathers and our siblings.
For an adult to discover the nature of their design, the mechanics of their Type, is a seven-year process of de-conditioning yourself. It is not like you have to work at that. It is about experimenting day by day with what it is to be you. It takes seven years for the vast majority of the cells in the body to be replaced. It takes seven years to eliminate the old conditioning and to bring about the new. It takes about three and a half years to reach the critical mass where the true self begins to dominate over the conditioned self.
It is so difficult for deeply conditioned human beings to appreciate the power that lies within them. They have never tapped into those resources. They are always trying to climb the mountain of inconsistency.
The complexity of what it is to be human is really misleading. The literature on “discovering yourself’ has little to do with fact and much to do with concept. Human Design is just about the basic mechanical infrastructure that humanity has. When you accept the way in which your vehicle is intended to operate, it will run smoothly. When your vehicle operates correctly, you who experience the life can finally relax and enjoy the journey. It requires nothing more than living out the basic mechanic of your Type. Nothing more.” Ra Uru Hu – Profile and Type Reference Book
Bart Nijman interviewt Hans Teeuwen in de Nieuwe Revu van deze week over het vrije woord. De cabaretier legt het nog één keer uit, want: ‘Vrijheid wordt te vaak verkeerd begrepen.’
Wanneer werd de vrijheid van meningsuiting een thema voor jou?
‘De eerste keer dat ik ging nadenken over de vrijheid van meningsuiting en hoe fragiel die is, kwam door twee incidenten met de Hells Angels in de jaren 90. In het programma van Jack Spijkerman werden grappen gemaakt over Hells Angels die in een bordeel waren doodgeschoten. Henk van Dorp had iets gezegd over de vermeend criminele activiteiten van deze volstrekt onschuldige jongensclub. Spijkerman werd toen bedreigd en Henk van Dorp moest na een klap in zijn gezicht twee weken lang met een blauw oog zijn programma presenteren, want de jongens waren even langs geweest. Van Dorp en Spijkerman boden zelfs hun excuses aan de Angels aan, op beeld. Dat was al schokkend genoeg, maar nog veel schokkender was dat niemand zich uitsprak tegen wat toch wel heftige bedreigingen en zelfs geweld waren. Artistieke vrijheid en persvrijheid werden door een klein clubje aan de motorlaars gelapt. Ik geloof niet dat het ooit de ambitie van de Hells Angels was om Nederland te gaan regeren, maar op het moment dat het doodstil blijft als je zoiets flikt, realiseer je je wel hoe effectief de dreiging van geweld is als je mensen het zwijgen op wil leggen. Dat vond ik oprecht schokkend. Een van de weinige mensen die zich daar toen net zo druk over maakte als ik, was nota bene Theo van Gogh. Terwijl de reactie van de meeste mensen was van: “Joh, doe nou maar niet, want die lui zijn knettergek.”’
Hoe keek je terug op dat incident?
‘Het geeft een besef over de vrijheid van meningsuiting. Dat er een zekere mate van moed voor nodig is om onder intimidatie uit te komen. De moed van de eenling, die het aandurft om een onderwerp op te werpen of een grap te maken, maar niet weet of iedereen zijn stap naar voren zal volgen, of dat hij daar alleen komt te staan. In de wind. Op zulke momenten vind ik dat de solidariteit van mensen die gewoon, zonder geweld en zonder bedreigingen, een debat willen voeren, zichtbaar moet worden. Want wat gaan die Hells Angels doen als er een massaal statement wordt gemaakt? Ze kunnen niet iedereen op hun bek slaan. Diezelfde wetmatigheid had moeten gelden rondom de eerste cartoons over Mohammed, in Denemarken. Toen er echte bedreigingen kwamen, die door toch een te groot deel van de islamitische gemeenschap in elk geval niet werden veroordeeld. Meteen bij het eerste geweld hadden ALLE (Teeuwen vraagt hier expliciet om hoofdletters, red.) kranten die cartoons moeten afdrukken, om zo de boodschap af te geven dat dát is wat er gebeurt als je een onwelgevallige mening met geweld of de dreiging daarvan probeert te intimideren – dan krijg je hem in duizendvoud terug.’ Read more
…for Reflectors is when they put their faith in the other. This is the great disappointment that awaits all Reflectors because sooner or later that is something that’s going to hurt them.
They are here to embrace what is a larger force in their life. It’s just what they’re here for. And of course, the moment that they are on that mundane plane that’s when the disappointment arises. The moment that the conditioning of the people around them is stronger than the conditioning of the program that’s the moment that truly the Reflector becomes lost.
They’re not here to reflect you and me. They only sample it. And what they’re really sampling is to see how much of the program you’ve taken in; because, after all, it’s not good for you. What’s good for them is not good for you. They can carry it inside them and it’s perfect. You carry it inside you and you’re lost in the not-self.”
… that an energy type likes about a non-energy type – The Projector – is that the Projector is interested in them. That’s true; this is the Projector. They’re interested in the other.
So when an energy type meets a Reflector they’re surprised; they’re often upset. “They’re not interested in me.” They expect that interest to be there; it is not there. The Reflector aura samples, it takes just a touch of the other. No more. It isn’t to say that when you see a Reflector with somebody else and you’re doing a composite chart, because I can hear the question coming, that they don’t activate it. Yes, of course, they do. This is just simple basic mechanics. But it’s very important to understand something. It has a very, very minimal effect and in terms of conditioning. It is nowhere as powerful as the same activations coming from the planets. And this is the difference.
The Reflector has no way to protect itself from the daily program. So, in fact, more than any other creature on this planet they are designed to be deeply impacted by the program—Sun worshipers, actually. It may be that the Reflector cycle is ruled by the Moon, but they are focused on the neutrino field. It is what they’re here to take in. They’re here to take in the primary programming information.”

Dat ‘verstand’ slaat overigens snel om in agressie, zo blijkt
“Ik heb lang getwijfeld, maar het politieke onbenul waarmee ‘verstandig Nederland’ zich op sociale media uitlaat over de verkiezingszege van Thierry Baudet – ronduit hysterisch en ‘onverstandig’ mijns inziens – mag niet onweersproken blijven. Al die haat, hoon en afkeer, tot en met de kreet ‘Waar blijft Volkert?’, nota bene uit de buik van een universiteit, toont precies de harde grens aan die de zelfbenoemde ‘verstandigen’ (denk voor ‘het beeld’ even aan de arrogante, papperige tronie van Maarten van Rossem) rond hun eigen wereldbeeld en onomstotelijk gelijk hebben opgetrokken.
Voor de goede orde: opnieuw is gebleken dat grofweg driekwart van het electoraat nog steeds braaf is, zich nog steeds achter de ‘normen en waarden’ opstelt waarover de ‘verstandigen’ zo hoog van de toren blazen (poldermodel, verbinden, empathie, bla-bla-bla), dus je zou zeggen: u kunt rustig gaan slapen. Maar o, o, o, wat brak de hél los, afgelopen woensdagavond!!! Ineens stond iedereen die inclusiviteit, menselijkheid en multiculti predikt klaar om een nieuwe, energieke partij – die in tegenstelling tot Wilders alles keurig ‘van onderop’ opbouwt – voor rotte vis uit te schelden en méér dan dat: met de talrijke verwijzingen naar de jaren ’30 werd openlijk gezinspeeld op een weldra te formeren gedachtepolitie of ideologische magistratuur, die dit veronderstelde ‘Kwaad’ in de kiem zou moeten smoren.
Oké, dacht ik, en dit zijn dus die zelfbenoemde ‘verstandige mensen’ die dagelijks bezig zijn ons land te besturen. Wat zijn dat voor povere bangeriken? En: op welk velletje denken zij dat geschreven staat dat hun soort ‘verstand’, dat eenmaal getest bij het minste geringste blijkt om te slaan in agressie, dit land voor eeuwig in bezit heeft? En niet uitgedaagd mag worden? Wát een onvoorstelbare armoede…
Ik zal u zeggen: ik heb niet op Forum voor Democratie gestemd, het zelfs niet overwogen, maar wat ben ik blij dat die moedige club van Thierry Baudet het is gaan opnemen tegen wat zich dag in dag uit als ‘het verstand’ presenteert en, naar nu blijkt, geen afwijkend geluid accepteert. Wat ben ik blij dat Forum heeft aangetoond dat er nog landgenoten zijn die eenmaal in de anonimiteit van het stemhokje het lef hebben om ‘stout’ te zijn. Naar hun hart durven te luisteren. Lang leve het stemhokje! Lang leve de beschutting die het biedt! Lang leve één van de laatste mogelijkheden om je los te scheuren van de door louter ‘verstandigen’ bevolkte media, die niets anders doen dan ons inpeperen, als in een éénpartij-staat, dat er maar één keuze is: die vóór ‘verstand’, hún soort ‘verstand’, wel te verstaan.
De suggestie van de zelfbenoemde ‘verstandigen’ dat Nederlanders zich met het stemmen op FvD ‘onfatsoenlijk’, ‘onverantwoordelijk’ en in het ergste geval ‘gevaarlijk’ (zie bruinhemden-retoriek) hebben gedragen, is lachwekkend. Als er in feite maar twee ‘partijen’ aan de verkiezingen meedoen (het partijkartel versus de rest) en je kwalificeert de keuze voor een partij die zich tegen het kartel keert als ‘gevaarlijk’, dan ben je effectief bezig Nederland in politiek opzicht tot een eenrichtingsstraat om te vormen. Dan wil je afslaan naar een weg, die eindigt in Noord-Korea.
En dan, tenslotte, die mateloze arrogantie om FvD weg te zetten als hebbende ‘geen oplossingen’. Alsof democratie een artsenexamen is, waarbij je eerst moet hebben aangetoond dat je mensen beter kunt maken. Wat een flauwekul. En wat een defensief geneuzel. Om te beginnen moet je eerst op de stoel van de arts zitten om te kunnen aantonen dat je mensen, in dit geval het land, ‘beter’ kunt maken. En ten tweede wil je dan, als zelfbenoemde ‘verstandige’, niet snappen dat democratie niet in de eerste plaats gaat over competenties en vaardigheden, maar over de vraag of mensen zich kunnen herkennen in de richting die we met z’n allen opgaan. Ergo: als je maar lang genoeg HET TEGENDEEL doet van wat grote groepen kiezers als de juiste richting zien, en dat maar lang genoeg volhoudt, doet het er op een gegeven moment niet meer toe of het geboden alternatief ‘capabel’ is, dan stem je als persoon die niks meer van zichzelf in de politiek herkent op élk alternatief om simpelweg GEHOORD te worden. Maar in de ogen van de onverstandige ‘verstandige’ val je dan onder het f-woord.
Dus dank, Thierry, voor het ontmaskeren van de onvoorstelbare armoede van de zittende voorhoede. Aan jou en je partij nu de – inderdaad veel zwaardere – taak die armoede in de schaduw te stellen. Succes!” Hans van Willigenburg
“Evolution is just a name we give to the illusion of motion, and wisdom is just a mirage. Despite all the talk of journeys and progress and growth, no one has ever moved an inch.

There was never any chance of making a difference because you were as much an illusion as the rest of it.” Jed McKenna – Dreamstate: A Conspiracy Theory
Van Birgitte Westerveld ontvingen wij onderstaand bericht.
I would like to report the following website hosted by your firm Transip B.V. server 184.108.40.206 for abusive content and slandering of my name across the internet. It’s a site maintained by Sjef Romijn : mcha.nl.
Content from a private FB discussion I’ve had between ‘friends only’ has been forwarded to Mr. Romijn in May 2018 and he has tagged several versions of my name (and those of others) and now all the offense content and images show up in search engines across the internet.
My reputations is being severely damaged and I would like all taken down. I have sent Mr. Romijn a private message this morning with the request to remove all content concerning me, but unfortunately he also promptly publicized this as well! I am pasting all links here. Your assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated, not only for me, but for all others involved as my children other friends and family, not to mention prospective employers or clients, who are being affected by this as well for having me publicly exposed in such an offensive manner!
I am also including 2 of my own screen shots of the images that appear under my name..
Thank you for your help in this unfortunate matter,
Met toestemming heb ik dit bericht aan je doorgestuurd, onze juridische afdeling zal dit verzoek gaan onderzoeken.
Met vriendelijke groet,
Me: Ik heb ervaringen met deze dame gehad (waarin zij mij behoorlijk door het slijk haalt), daar heb ik over geblogged, zie de links die zij zelf aan jullie gegeven heeft. Ik hoor het wel als er vragen zijn. Bedankt.
Transip: Beste Sjef,
Dat kan ik me goed voorstellen. Op geen enkele wijze willen wij ons hierin mengen als dat voorkomen kan worden. De beklaagde kwam verhaal halen en wij hebben gedaan wat wij in deze situaties doen en kunnen doen.
Ik hoop dat je de dialoog aan gaat met haar en er op die manier uit komt. Nog een fijne zaterdag toegewenst.
Met vriendelijke groet,
in order to consider your request of removing all content regarding you, I will accept the following:
-unblock me on FaceBook first, by all your FB accounts/aliases.
-post an apology for smearing me, my name and my HD work falsely, be just as elaborate as you were smearing me, make this post public. A video message is acceptable too.
-Edit that specific smearing topic on your FB wall (do not delete it) to first make the post public, then to include the apology.
-write to all people you’ve written before complaining about me, like FB group admins and so on, with this public apology.
-Show me proof of all these.
The same applies for all others involved in that topic.
Then, I will take a full Lunar Cycle to consider your request.
“Sjef, zou je die HDS \’soap opera\’ content aub kunnen verwijderen. Je hebt mijn naam en die van alle anderen getagged en nu komt alles op in searchengines. Wij schijnen elkaar niet te liggen.. bygones be bygones…maar ik heb ook kinderen die hier niet bij ingetrokken hoeven te worden.”
Google translate: “Sjef, could you please remove that HDS soap opera content. You have tagged my name and that of all others and now everything shows up in searchengines. We do not seem to sit well with each other .. bygones be bygones … but I also have children who do not have to be dragged into it.”
The Rave New Year Forecast is Fundamentally a Transit Weather Forecast
The transits of the Rave New Year are frequency patterns, interpreted by the mind, that will arise over and over throughout the year. It is easy to become caught up in the planetary transits because they influence all of humanity – we are in a material program which promotes a homogenized way of thinking and acting.
Learning about the planetary transits help us to become aware of what is not us, of what is not our individual life. When we learn about the Rave Year ahead, it is a finger pointing us towards what we can become aware of, without becoming identified with it, or acting upon it. It becomes the basis of our wisdom about the world, and what is not us.
It can be valuable to remember that this is the transit weather passing through; however, it is a weather pattern that will come up over and over throughout the year. We do not need to identify ourselves with the weather passing through; it is simply something that is experienced through the body and observed with the mind. We don’t make up stories about how the weather is doing something to us, or that we must do something about the weather; it is simply a fact of life here on planet Earth. Just like the weather, the Rave New Year transit themes are a fact of life on planet Earth every year.
If we know it is going to be rainy, we can be prepared, and take an umbrella with us; if we know the Rave New Year forecast, we can be prepared for what the homogenized world around us will be caught up in, and therefore, what to look for in the transit weather.
What is the Program?
The Program is a term that Ra used to describe the way the planetary transits operate together. We live in a vast neutrino ocean of approximately 30 trillion neutrinos per square inch per second; and we take in their energy, which arises primarily from the core of stars. Each neutrino travels to us across the solar system; and as they pass across or through a planet, the neutrino picks up the frequency imprint of that planet.
Each planet has a specific orbit in our solar system, which is described in Human Design through the Rave Mandala wheel, from the point of view of planet Earth. As each planet moves in its orbit, it passes through each of the gates in the Rave Mandala wheel. The Sun takes 365 days to pass through all 64 gates, where Pluto takes 251.9 years to do the same.
When we look at a transit of a specific day, we are seeing a snapshot of the planet’s movement around the wheel, and the specific energies that the neutrinos are bringing to us. The combination of all these planetary aspects and their gates is called The Program.
By observing The Program for the Rave New Year, we can learn to recognize these imprinted themes in action around us, and not get caught up in acting upon them, or identifying with them. Simply stated – energy is not personal.
Each planetary body has its own unique frequency theme, which is then expressed through the imprinted neutrinos passing by, and through that planetary body.
When we are looking at the Rave New Year Transits, we are looking at the over-arching, global themes for the entire year. Their potential influence is in the way our mind is conditioned to think, with a particular direction or focus. We can also become caught up in identifying with the homogenized world, which amplifies this same conditioning.
Each planet’s frequency for the coming year, expressed through the specific gate it is transiting, brings a unique energy transmission, which can be experienced by the body, and observed by the mind.
However, each of us have our own imprint of the planets, and their gate energies, that make up our individual BodyGraph. Our very strategy, and Inner Authority, arise through the specifics of the planetary imprint of our design. When we are operating correctly, we are living a life that is built upon the specifics of our design, through each planetary aspect and their frequencies.
When the mind is running the life, it runs on The Program; it is a distorted, and homogenized way of life – acting and reacting to the transit themes and their influences. And, if The Program provides a transit in a gate that is open in our design, the mind will be very attracted to acting upon it.
By learning about The Program, and specifically the Rave New Year programming, we can learn to observe these themes in action around us. Slowly, we can become familiar with these themes, and avoid being identified with them, or initiating action based upon them.
Remember, the transits are here to be observed, and self-observation builds our wisdom, and potential for awareness in the now.
“That can actually sound quite cute. But anyway they don’t. They don’t. Vehicles don’t wake up. It’s not even in their criteria. Vehicles are vehicles. Only passengers can wake up.
To break through that, it’s not enough to say “Ok, follow your strategy, honor your inner authority.” You can’t imagine, well, I guess you can because most of you have heard it, I say this endlessly, it is my “take two aspirins and go to bed,” over and over and over again, but it’s not enough when it comes to any attempt to awaken the passenger. As I said earlier, you can follow your design and have the serendipity that your passenger sees. There isn’t anything to say that there isn’t a 2nd line somewhere that will come to that quite naturally. It’s all possible. But in terms of the vast population, in terms of the vast majority of people who will experiment with this knowledge? No. No, it’s not a given because it is a gift and not a right. How about that? It’s not a right.
There can be a number of ways. You can be Krishnamurti. That is, you can have a fabulous intellectual mind. And through the very glory of your intellectual mind you can get to a resolute place of recognizing choicelessness. Bravo, very few beings can do that. It’s impressive, but very few can. You can have satori, that incredible epiphany, magical moment, whatever you want to call it, in which suddenly seeing is there. So many of the beings that we call masters, gurus, whatever, have had these kinds of experiences where suddenly there’s this seeing and everybody says “ah”; yeah, well, ok. It’s not transferable. We’re talking about transference and we’re talking about what’s transferable. I have no right as a teacher to teach anything that isn’t transferable” – Ra Uru Hu
“It doesn’t teach us to be nice
Human Design is the rule breaker
It urges us to be ourselves in any price
All the prices our conditioned mind might think we pay
Turn out to be the biggest gifts bestowed upon us through this process
There is no bigger gift then being one’s SELF
It can’t be quantified
It can’t be compared
It can’t be defined
And there is nothing more important or worthy than it.
There is no cause
There is no enlightenment.
SELF is all there is.
And the gift of its unique expression through a body and mind.
We humans have so many ideas, in any path we walk.
Every “truth” brings endless words to feed the thought,
Which now translates its instructions into new language.
If we believe it, we fall into the pit. Illusion.
If we think it can tell us what it means to be SELF
We are mistaken.
The problem cannot recognize the solution
Thought cannot comprehend what is before and beyond thought.
Human Design reminds us what it is to be a guest here, on this plane.
A passenger consciousness in a vehicle,
Driving us safely on itself.
To be a passenger is not to look at everyone else,
And think who we are in compared to them.
It is to watch and see our SELF,
Being revealed and exposed, out of letting go into what IS.
And to allow the expression of it as it is,
Without masks, or trying to please and ease, to fit in.
Without fighting to change, to be someone or something.
It is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others.
And it takes courage. It takes courage to be who we are.
Mostly the courage of the first decision – to try.
After that, out strategy and authority take us.
I love Human Design.” – Pavaka Katzir – Living Your Design Guide – Human Design Manifestor Group
“Before I woke up to reality, I had a symbol for all my frustration: my children’s socks. Every morning they would be on the floor, and every morning I would think, “My children should pick up their socks.” It was my religion. You could say my world was accelerating out of control in my mind; there were socks everywhere. And I would be filled with rage and depression because I believed these socks didn’t belong on the floor even though, morning after morning, that’s where they were. I believed it was my children’s job to pick them up even though, morning after morning, they didn’t.
I use the image of children and socks, but you might find that for you, the same thoughts apply to the environment, politics or money. We think these things should be different than they are, and we suffer because we believe our thoughts. At 43, after 10 years of deep depression and despair, my real life began.
What I came to see was that my suffering wasn’t a result of not having control; it was a result of arguing with reality. I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered; when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.
When you question your mind for the love of truth, your life always becomes happier and kinder. Inquiry helps the suffering mind move out of its arguments with reality. It helps us move into alignment with constant change. After all, the change is happening anyway, whether we like it or not. Everything changes. But when we’re attached to our thoughts about how that change should look, we feel uncomfortable when we realize we’re not in control. Through inquiry, we enter the area where we do have control: our thinking. We question our thoughts about the ways in which the world seems to have gone crazy, for example. And we come to see that the craziness was never in the world, but in us.
When we understand our thinking, we understand the world, and we come to love it. In that, there’s peace.
Who would I be without the thought that the world needs improving? Happy where I am right now: the woman sitting on a chair in the sunlight. Pretty simple. The apparent craziness of the world, like everything else, is a gift we can use to set our minds free. Any stressful thought you have about the planet, for example, or about life and death, shows you where you’re stuck, where your energy is being exhausted as a result of not fully meeting life as it is, without conditions. You can’t free yourself by finding a so-called “enlightened” state outside your own mind. When you question what you believe, you eventually come to see you’re the enlightenment you’ve been seeking.
Until you can love what is–everything, including the apparent violence and craziness–you’re separate from the world, and you’ll see it as dangerous and frightening. I invite everyone to put these fearful thoughts on paper, question them, and set themselves free. When the mind is not at war with itself, there’s no separation in it. I’m 65 years old and unlimited. I’m no longer interested in what my children do with their socks.”
Quoted from a book by Byron Katie: A thousands names for joy
“The body doesn’t care about you. Your vehicle doesn’t care about you. Your brain doesn’t care about you, that you think you think you are. It doesn’t. It’s living out a very, very deep, programmed, mechanical process that has a beginning, a middle and an end. You just happen to be a by-product of all of that, nothing more, nothing less. Left on the outside, not even allowed to enter the body, can you imagine.
Think about it. This illusion we have about soul, think about it. There you are in the womb just this perfect mechanical flesh bag; it’s perfect, this bio-mechanism, no Personality crystal, just the Design, just the Monopole. They build these machines, they run them, they drive them, and they kill them.
Then you have that moment, that moment where the Personality is going to be called in. But it’s not called in; it’s yanked into the orbit of the vehicle. That’s all.
It’s my joke when people ask me why I wear hats. It’s to keep my Personality crystal warm. It doesn’t even get to be in the body. Then you think that who you think you are runs your show. It’s hilarious. It’s sad; actually, it’s tragic comedy. It really is. There is the Personality stuck on the outside, don’t even let it in. And it’s the form that offers you those little aspects that you call Personality activations. It’s the form that creates that potential. It’s the form principle that sets the moment for bringing you in that is going to set the moment of your birth. It’s all fixed. It’s all a game. And the Personality sits on the outside. And it thinks that it is dying, and it’s not. It was never part of it anyway.
That’s the thing to really grasp. The Personality really has nothing to do with the life; nothing at all. It’s just a seduction to be pulled into the illusion; it’s just an illusion. It’s just the limitation of the primitiveness of the brainpan that we have, that this is the way that it functions. The illusion that we have that this is our vehicle, that this is our life. But in death the joke is revealed. In death the Design doesn’t even turn around and say good-bye to the Personality. It shows it its rear and the door, and that’s it, it doesn’t care.”

…that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man’s lawful prey.
It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all.
