Beth suggested in a PM that we opened a thread where to put interesting quotes.

Here it is.

Sometimes things written by others come my way that seem a good fit for the forum, inspiring or illuminating, but they don't need any support or further contextualizing by someone like myself. Voices from elsewhere that stand on their own in the moment. (Maybe the deceased want their own UM thread too! ha ha ha)

Just a thought. It occurred to me because of this quote in my email box today:


Love (and passion altogether) can be based either on the central reference point of ego or on a more centerless approach that is beyond ego. There is a vast store of energy that is not ego’s energy at all. It is the energy of the primeval background, which permeates whatever is going on. This energy has a consuming quality, an ever-burning quality, like that of the sun. This vast power goes on and on and on, leaving no room to manipulate, leaving no room for confusion or ignorance or panic or doubt. Passion is a very powerful thing."
