“Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down.
Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge; governments destroy freedom; the major media destroy information, and religions destroy spirituality.”
“We reproduce catastrophe because we ourselves are traumatized— both as a species and individually, beginning at birth. Because we are wounded, we have put up psychic defenses against reality and have become so cut off from direct participation in the multidimensional wilderness in which we are embedded, that all we can do is navigate our way cautiously through a humanly designed, day-to-day substitute world of symbols— a world of dollars, minutes, numbers, images, and words that are constantly being manipulated to wring the most possible profit from every conceivable circumstance.
The body and spirit both rebel.”
“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?
What would a man give in exchange for eternal life?
Be not ashamed of me and my words in this sinful and hypocritical generation, even as I will not be ashamed to acknowledge you when in glory I appear before my Father in the presence of all the celestial hosts.
Nevertheless, many of you now standing before me shall not taste death till you see this kingdom of God come with power.”
We must use force to protect ourselves from the shrewd, wicked, and designing men who have entrenched themselves behind political and financial power.
