Great quote from Joseph Campbell, the greatest mythology teacher of all time who inspired George Lucas to create Star Wars. It sums up the reason for HA too!

The full version of the quote is:

“People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. ... I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” - Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth (PBS Interview with Bill Moyers)

Great quotes by Winston Churchill.

This one explains why we should not waste time arguing with idiots online (including in this forum, e.g. publicduende).

Great meme that explains one reason why we are misfits in America and similar conformist cultures.

This quote below by Einstein is wise and makes sense and supports my theory and observation too. Often what we think of as coincidences are later revealed to have a purpose after all. Many great spiritual seekers, teachers and authors come to realize this and have noted it in their books and lectures. Perhaps they are right after all in saying that there are no coincidences.

However, in a dualistic universe, both chaos and order must exist because they both define each other by their opposite. Plus no one, not even God, would want to play a game where the outcome was known from the beginning. Every game needs an element of risk, chance and uncertainty otherwise it's not worth playing. I'm sure the gods feel the same way. So it could be that chaos exists at the physical level, but at a higher dimension or level it does not. The universe can also be a paradox of being chaotic yet all be in divine order at the same time, just like everything can come from nothing (a void) which cosmologists now say is possible after all and can be demonstrated mathematically.

This Bible quote supports what I said long ago, that if you gain too much knowledge and wisdom, you will gain sorrow and loneliness too. Dumber people and dogs are usually happier and simpler than complex and knowledgeable people. Truth does not bring happiness, but usually the opposite.
