"Truly, this shocked reverence for the past is a wonderful and fearful thing! After all, the Divine is infinite and the unrolling of the Truth may be an infinite process..., not a thing in a nutshell cracked and its contents exhausted once and for all by the first seer or sage, while the others must religiously crack the same nutshell all over again!"
"The traditional view of the mind that is being given to us through the medical and psychological sciences basically is telling us that the mind is created by our brains. If you have that view…it means pretty much that you're not really open to downloading some of the influences from the central intelligence of the universe. On the other hand what my work (and I'm not the only one doing it but I'm doing it in a very special way) is [saying is] that the mind and our thought processes in general are not created by our brains, rather the mind is something that is being downloaded to our brain. It's sort of like the software to our hardware. Our brains are like the hardware and the software is downloaded and it comes with these different waves. And these waves appear to be emanating from the centre of the universe. And you can say then that there is some intelligence that has been called "God" that is the the centre of this, the Source of all this."Dr. Carl J. Calleman (link, loc. 1:07:19)
"You live in a universe that is interactive. Not only do you communicate with the universe, the universe communicates with you at all levels. The heavens actually influence you. And you can interact with the planets too because there are certain mantras you can use, certain prayers you can use and you can cancel the influence of the planet, or you can battle the influence of the planet."Sri Vasudeva, June 8, 2003 Canada workshop
"It is not the physicist but the Self-realized master who comprehends the true nature of matter."

"The purpose of this present volume is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity at the basis of all religions, that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various religions prevalent in the world, that there is but one method by which the world both external and internal has been evolved and that there is but one goal admitted by all the religious books."
