When the mind’s eye rests on objects illuminated by truth and reality,
it understands and comprehends them, and functions intelligently;
but when it turns to the twilight world of change and decay,
it can only form opinions, its vision is confused and its beliefs shifting,
and it seems to lack intelligence.

— Plato, Republic

“So long as the sense of the observing subject remains,
there is the effort, however indirect, to control feeling from the outside,
which is resistance setting up turmoil in the stream.
Resistance disappears and the balancing process comes into full effect,
not by intention on the part of the subject,
but only as it is seen that the feeling of being the subject,
the ego, is itself part of the stream of experience
and does not stand outside it in a controlling position.”

— Alan Watts

“Life exists only at this very moment,
and in this moment it is infinite and eternal,
for the present moment is infinitely small;
before we can measure it,
it has gone, and
yet it exists forever….”

should always be suspected as questions
asked in the wrong way”
