First, my people must be taught the knowledge of self. Then and only then will they be able to understand others and that which surrounds them. Anyone who does not have a knowledge of self is considered a victim of either amnesia or unconsciousness and is not very competent. The lack of knowledge of self is a prevailing condition among my people here in America. Gaining the knowledge of self makes us unite into a great unity. Knowledge of self makes you take on the great virtue of learning."------ Honorable Elijah Muhammad

A wise man sees failure as progress
a fool divorces his knowledge and misses the logic
And loses his soul in the process
obsessed with nonsense with a caricature that has no content-----Canibus

He who works like a slave, eats like a king- Rza

You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom----Malcolm X

I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don’t believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn’t want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I’m not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn’t know how to return the treatment-----Malcolm X

A race of people is like an individual man; until it uses its own talent, takes pride in its own history, expresses its own culture, affirms its own selfhood, it can never fulfill itself."

From the Lion King:

Simba: Creepy little monkey. Will you stop following me? Who are you?
Rafiki: {In front of Simba, then right in his face.}
The question is: Whooo... are you?
Simba: {Startled, then sighing}
I thought I knew. Now I'm not so sure.
Rafiki: Well, I know who you are. Shh. Come here. It's a secret.
{He pulls Simba's head over to whisper into his ear.
He starts his chant into Simba's ear and laughs.}
Asante sana!
Squash banana!
We we nugu!
Mi mi apana!
Simba: Enough already. what's that supposed to mean, anyway?
Rafiki: It means you are a baboon-- and I'm not. {laughs}
Simba: {Moving away}
I think... you're a little confused. Rafiki: {Magically in front of Simba again}
Wrong. I'm not the one who's confused; you don't even know who you are.

From Return of the Jedi:

LUKE: I know, Father.
VADER: So, you have accepted the truth.
LUKE: I have accepted the truth that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father.
VADER: That name no longer has any meaning for me.
LUKE: It is the name of your true Self, you've only forgotten...

Your typo has changed the meaning of that one!


"If you think you know what the hell is going on, you're probably full of shit."

Robert Anton Wilson

"...Today, a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration and that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and you are the imagination of yourself. Here's Tom with the weather...!"

Bill Hicks (on wanting to see a positive drug story on the news)

"Imagine people calling you to find out if you're dead. I've led a real crazy life at times, and I've had many strange things happen to me, but that was one of the strangest."

Richard Pryor

"A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what's going on."

William S. Burroughs

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."

Neely Fuller - Most white people hate Black people. The reason that most white people hate Black people is because whites are not Black people. If you know this about white peopole, you need know little else. If you do not know this about white people, virtually all else that you know about them will only confuse you.

Man Alone: Alienation in Modern Society - ...one of the most disturbing phenomena of Western culture has been man's sense of estrangement from the world he himself has made or inherited - in a word, man's alienation from himself and from others.

Herman melville - What is it that in the Albino man so peculiarly repels and often shocks the eye, as that sometimes he is loathed by his own kith andkin! It is that whiteness which invests him, a thing expressed by the name he bears. The Albino is a s well made as other men - has no substantive deformity - and yet this mere aspect of all-pervading whiteness makes him more strangely hideous than the ugliest abortion

Mark Twain: Mark Twain on the Damned Human Race - Nearly all black and brown skins are beautiful, but a beautiful white skin is rare. How rare, one may learn by walking down a street in paris, New York or London on a weekday - particularly an unfashonable street - and keeping count of the satisfactory complexions encountered in the course of a mile. Where dark complexions are massed, they make the whites look bleached out, unwholesome, and sometimes frankly ghastly.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.- Frederick Douglass

Vain are the beliefs and teachings that make man miserable, and false is the goodness that leads him into sorrow and despair, for it is man's purpose to be happy on this earth and lead the way to felicity and preach its gospel wherever he goes. He who does not see the kingdom of heaven in this life will never see it in the coming life. ----Khalil Gibran

Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be.----Khalil Gibran

To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but what he aspires to. ---Khalil Gibran

The relation between the white and colored people of this country is the great, paramount, imperative, and all-commanding question for this age and nation to solve.---Frederick douglass

If you're not ready to die for it, take the word "freedom" out of your vocabulary.---Malcolm X

I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being, neither white, black, brown nor red.----Malcolm X

Once you change your philosophy, you change your thought pattern. Once you change your thought pattern, you change your — your attitude. Once you change your attitude, it changes your behavior pattern and then you go on into some action.----Malcolm X

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love.----Khalil Gibran

Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding. ---Lao Tzu

The universe is deathless; Is deathless because, having no finite self, it stays infinite. A sound man by not advancing himself stays the further ahead of himself, By not confining himself to himself sustains himself outside himself: By never being an end in himself he endlessly becomes himself.-----Lao Tzu

Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. ----Lao Tzu

A belief is a vivid hope or fear, and the origin of folly.
A wise person goes by knowledge, not hope or fear…

If we did not need duty and justice, loving relationships would form…
If we did not need ruse and profit, corruption and theft would disappear…
But such replies treat only symptoms, so they are not adequate.
People need personal answers.
Reveal your deepest self, embrace your original nature.
Constrain your self-interest,rein in your desire…

"I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination-indeed, everything and anything except me."

We see that a man without the feeling of commiseration is not a man; a man without the feeling of shame and dislike is not a man; a man. Without the feeling of deference and compliance is not a man; and a man without the feeling of right and wrong is not a man. The feeling of commiseration is the beginning of humanity; the feeling of shame and dislike is the beginning of righteousness; the feeling of deference and compliance is the beginning of propriety; and the feeling of right and wrong is the beginning of wisdom. Men have these Four Beginnings just as they have their four limbs. Having these Four Beginnings, but saying that they cannot develop them is to destroy themselves.

When we look at a tree there is not only physical distance, but there is also psychological distance. There is the distance between you and the tree, the distance created by the image as knowledge : that is an oak tree, or an elm. That image between you and the tree separates you.

But when the quality of the mind of the observer is without the image, which is imagination, then there is quite a different relationship between the observer and the observed. Have you ever looked at a tree without a single word of like or dislike, without a single image? Have you noticed what then takes place? Then, for the first time, you see the tree as it is and you see the beauty of it, the colour, the depth, the vitality of it. A tree, or even another person, is fairly easy to observe; but to observe oneself that way - that is to observe without the observer - is much more difficult. So one must find out who is the observer.

I want to watch myself, I want to know myself as deeply as possible. What is the nature, the structure of that observer who is watching? That observer is the past, isn't it? - the past knowledge which he has collected and stored up; the past being the culture, the conditioning. That is the observer who says, "This is right, this is wrong, this must be, this must not be, this is good, this is bad." So the observer is the past and with those eyes of the past we try to see what we are. They we say, "I don't like this, I am ugly," or "this I will keep." All these discriminations and condemnations take place. Can I look at myself without the eyes of the past? Can I watch myself in action, which is in relationship, without any movement of the past? Have you ever tried this? (I don't suppose you have.)

When there is no observer then there is only the observed. Please see this: I am envious, or I overeat, I am greedy. The normal reaction is, "I must not overeat", "I must not be greedy", "I must suppress", you know all that follows. In that there is the observer trying to control his greed, or his envy. Now when there is an awareness of greed without the observer, what takes place? Can I observe that greed without giving it a name, as "greed"? The moment I name it I have already fixed it as greed in my memory which says: I must get over it, I must control. So is there an observation of greed without the word, without justifying it, without condemning it? Which means, can I observe this thing called greed without any reaction whatsoever?

To observer is a form of discipline, isn't it? Not imposing any particular pattern, which means conformity, suppression and all the rest of it, but to observe the whole serious of actions without condemning, justifying or naming - just to observe. Then you will see the mind is no longer wasting energy. It is then aware and therefore it has the energy to deal with that which it is observing."

"Unless we have chosen the life of a hermit we will come into contact with other people in our daily lives and therefore be affected by their thoughts and behavior. First I am going to look at the problem of what I call 'passive negativity'. This is the form of negativity that is created by the thoughts, attitudes and behavior of people who are not intending to harm us or disturb us, but who are carrying around their problems and so will cause a reaction in our own emotions and feelings if we come into contact with them.

When your energy field comes close to another person's you absorb some of the energies of that person. If they are happy and cheerful this can give you a lift, but if they are depressed and downcast you will be affected by the negativity in their aura - it will move across into your own.


This is the most draining of personality types to cope with. People who feel sorry for themselves are energy thieves. They will talk to you for hours and hours about their problems then leave you drained of energy. Of course, we all have bouts of self-pity in our lives but I am talking here of people who are perpetually looking for someone to listen to their woes. You will be able to identify them:

- They will tell you the same story over and over and over again, even when you have shown sympathy and
caring on each occasion.
- They rarely follow any of the advice you give them
- You hear them telling the same tales to every other person who is willing to listen
- They consider themselves to be victims of circumstances and show no indications that they are prepared to take responsibility for what happens in their life.


Persistent sulkers are also energy thieves. Sulkers are usually looking for attention and are also very manipulative. Sulking is where a person who doesn't get their own way makes obvious signs to all around that he or she is upset. Sulkers only perform to audiences. Sulking is petulance. It is the behavior of self-absorbed people, because they don't care too much about the effect their behavior has on other people.

Egotistical behavior

This is the behavior of a person who wants the world to orientate itself around them. A person who believes they are important - not to be confused with one who knows themselves and accepts themselves for what they are, whether good or bad. Egotists tend to bore people with their own importance. They can be snobs. They are often selfish - considering only themselves. Egotists will not care for the feelings of others - they will be concerned with their own comforts and will want to win all arguments and have their way in all decision-making situations. You will know when you have met one - you will feel emotionally steamrollered.

Low self-esteem

People who have low self-esteem or little self-respect can be very draining. They will be constantly seeking approval and will have very little confidence. They may show signs of self-pity. They will often have secondary problems as a result of their own lace of self-love - they may have problems making decisions, develop eating disorders or other sicknesses, lean on those near to them for moral and emotional support, find it difficult to engage socially and be disinclined to join in group activities.

They can be so keen to gain approval that they may drive themselves too hard to reach an unattainable perfection. These traits will be quite trying for those around them, whether family members or work colleagues.


Fear is a very negative emotion. It creates negativity like nothing else apart from hatred. An anxious and fearful person is difficult to live or work with because they will drain you of energy and will be reluctant to move forward in life. Their lives are limited by their fears and anxieties. They will often have love self-esteem and there is the chance that they will develop panic attacks, paranoia and other serious psychological and mental problems. Some fears arise from clear and obvious sources, others are unreasonable.

Smothering love

Smotherers seem to be full of care for you but in reality their love is overwhelming and suffocating - like a soft yet heavy and unyielding blanket. Their love is often conditional and manipulative ('Oh, don't worry if you can't come, I suppose I'll have to manage somehow', 'You wouldn't do this if you really cared about me') and can create feelings of guilt in the receiver. You feel guilty because you are not returning their love in the same all consuming way.

The person who tries to control and own a person in this way is lacking self-esteem and self-confidence and has either been treated in this way themselves or, more likely, has experience a lack of love. They are fearful of losing the person they are smothering - although their behavior is likely to make this happen.


Ditherers are people who lack the confidence to make up their minds. They find it incredibly difficult to reach a decision because they are forever looking at all the alternatives. They are out of touch with their intuition and are letting fear stop them from listening to their inner self. Therefore all options feel the same to them, and they can't trust their feelings to help them make decision on what is right or wrong for them. Often they are worrying about the outcome and how it will be perceived in the eyes of others. Ditherers can be very infuriating and a trust test of your patience.


Unreliable people are frustrating to work with and annoying socially. They often cannot arrive on time and forget appointments and meetings. If you always keep people waiting it can come across as a lack of care and even as selfish - 'my time is more important than your time'. Very often unreliable people are not able to say no to anyone and overfill their lives. If someone regularly makes promises and forgets to fulfil them or otherwise doesn't perform they are also showing themselves to be careless of your trust.


This is not always necessarily a negative state - over-zealous people are often the 'movers and shakers' of the world and may leave a positive mark - they are often those that turn situations around and work with good causes. Still, their energy can be very graining for those who come in contact with them. They are often living in the fast lane and crash through our lives creating tidal waves of backlash energy. They can be 'wired', hyperactive chaotic and undisciplined and quite difficult to live with. They may also occasionally be egotistical.


In the same way that thoughts affect your energy, the intention to protect yourself will strengthen your energy field. There are a number of simple visualizations techniques you can use to preserve and protect yourself when you are in the presence of disruptive and draining energies.

The egg

This is a very simple but effective way to protect your aura and personal space from other people's emotional outbursts or negative thoughts. It takes only a few seconds to visualize. I suggest that you get into your egg whenever you encounter any of the energy types mentioned above, and also when you visit hospitals and other places where people are sick or needy.

- Imagine yourself stepping into a large egg. Step in through a doorway and close the door behind you.
- The egg has thick walls that keep out all negative emotions
- Know that these walls will protect you, and only love will come through
- Put as many windows as you wish into the walls of your egg
- If you are in an ongoing contentious situation then renew your egg every few hours. Otherwise visualizing it every morning will be fine.

An alternative to the egg is the bubble - a big, clear bubble around you that again keeps out negativity. You can see through it and positive energies can penetrate to you, but anything negative just sits on the outside and bounces back.

"Light" represents consciousness. When we do not understand a thing, we say that we must "bring it to light." If we are confused, we say that our process "needs more light." When a sudden idea reorders our thoughts, we say that the "light came on," and when a person is fully conscious, we say that he or she is "enlightened." When you release a negative thought, or a negative feeling, you release lower-frequency currents of energy from your system, and this, literally, allows an increase in the frequency of your consciousness.

You are a dynamic being of Light that at each moment informs the energy that flows through you. You do this with each thought, with each intention.

The light that flows through your system is Universal energy. It is the Light of the Universe. You give that Light form. What you feel, what you think, how you behave, what you value and how you live your life reflect the way that you are shaping the Light that is flowing through you. They are the thought forms, the feeling forms and the action forms that you have given to light."

"We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was "well timed" in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word "Wait!" It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This "Wait" has almost always meant "Never." We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that "justice too long delayed is justice denied."

We have waited for more than 340 years for our constitutional and God given rights. The nations of Asia and Africa are moving with jetlike speed toward gaining political independence, but we still creep at horse and buggy pace toward gaining a cup of coffee at a lunch counter. Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say, "Wait." But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse, kick and even kill your black brothers and sisters; when you see the vast majority of your twenty million Negro brothers smothering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society; when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she can't go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little mental sky, and see her beginning to distort her personality by developing an unconscious bitterness toward white people; when you have to concoct an answer for a five year old son who is asking: "Daddy, why do white people treat colored people so mean?"; when you take a cross county drive and find it necessary to sleep night after night in the uncomfortable corners of your automobile because no motel will accept you; when you are humiliated day in and day out by nagging signs reading "white" and "colored"; when your first name becomes "******," your middle name becomes "boy" (however old you are) and your last name becomes "John," and your wife and mother are never given the respected title "Mrs."; when you are harried by day and haunted by night by the fact that you are a Negro, living constantly at tiptoe stance, never quite knowing what to expect next, and are plagued with inner fears and outer resentments; when you are forever fighting a degenerating sense of "nobodiness"--then you will understand why we find it difficult to wait. There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no longer willing to be plunged into the abyss of despair. I hope, sirs, you can understand our legitimate and unavoidable impatience. You express a great deal of anxiety over our willingness to break laws. This is certainly a legitimate concern. Since we so diligently urge people to obey the Supreme Court's decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools, at first glance it may seem rather paradoxical for us consciously to break laws. One may well ask: "How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?" The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that "an unjust law is no law at all."

In our country alone there are over a million men and woman – not even counting juveniles – in prisons. There are an estimated three million homeless people. Poverty is widespread, and fear is the national currency. People seek the security of love, yet at the same time they are isolated, alienated – even from themselves. Isolation and alienation are barriers, forces of division. What shatters these barriers is dialogue.

Even in a free democracy, the States always attempts to control dialogue – to decide for its own interests the limits of allowable discourse. In order to be heard, one must have wealth, power, influence, rank. It’s the same with the media. The media always quotes the same roundtable of "experts". Where are the voices of the poor, the excluded, the powerless? Absent those voices, absent a recognition of their worth, there can be no true dialogue, and thus no true democracy.

Objectivity in journalism is an illusion, a hollow word, yet it becomes so real to its perpetrators, who have been poisoned with the lie from the first day of journalism school, that they end up not believing in it,
but letting it form the whole foundation of their profession. It’s always been a great ideal, but in reality it’s misguided belief. And they end up using it to justify everything they do.

When you look at news today – I’m talking now about national network newscasts – it is astounding that what used to make the local news, if that, is now considered as having national importance. Local crime stories, especially the most lurid ones, become national news stories not because of anything extraordinary about them, but because that is the stuff that sells. It’s the old jingle: “If it bleeds, it leads.” They don’t feed the public pieces that stimulate intelligent thought, pieces that might make people talk or even ask questions about the fundamental relationships of power, rand, and status in this country. They’re more interested in sensation.

It’s almost as if the average newscast has been reduced and molded to fit Hard Copy or some other such show like that. The end product is trash, but it is trash that has been carefully designed to attract you emotionally, to touch you sensationally, to get you looking (but not thinking). It doesn’t provoke you or encourage to question the fundamentals. The real issues behind stories are often ignored. They’re not considered important enough to be raised."

...long quote but a good one. From HENRY DAVID THOREAU's "Walden"...

Not long since, a strolling Indian went to sell baskets at the house of a well-known lawyer in my neighborhood. "Do you wish to buy any baskets?" he asked. "No, we do not want any," was the reply. "What!" exclaimed the Indian as he went out the gate, "do you mean to starve us?" Having seen his industrious white neighbors so well off — that the lawyer had only to weave arguments, and, by some magic, wealth and standing followed — he had said to himself: I will go into business; I will weave baskets; it is a thing which I can do. Thinking that when he had made the baskets he would have done his part, and then it would be the white man's to buy them. He had not discovered that it was necessary for him to make it worth the other's while to buy them, or at least make him think that it was so, or to make something else which it would be worth his while to buy. I too had woven a kind of basket of a delicate texture, but I had not made it worth any one's while to buy them. Yet not the less, in my case, did I think it worth my while to weave them, and instead of studying how to make it worth men's while to buy my baskets, I studied rather how to avoid the necessity of selling them.

Not trying to derail the thread but this is kinda funny coming from ol' Albert considering this:

Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity (http://www.suite101.com/content/einsteins-general-relativity-a17817) predicted that the universe is expanding (http://www.suite101.com/content/steady-state-and-big-bang-theories-a23667). Einstein did not believe this implication of his own theory, so he added a term in his equations that he called the cosmological constant.
This cosmological constant was basically a fudge designed and inserted into the theory for the sole purpose of keeping the theory from predicting that the universe is expanding.

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.

Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth."
Say not, "I have found the path of the soul." Say rather, "I have met the soul walking upon my path."
For the soul walks upon all paths.
The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself like a lotus of countless petals. - Gibran
