“Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.”
― Alan Watts

Alan Watts Quote On Mystery Of Life Image

“The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.”
― Alan Watts

#3

“Most of us assume as a matter of common sense that space is nothing, that it’s not important and has no energy. But as a matter of fact, space is the basis of existence. How could you have stars without space? Stars shine out of space and something comes out of nothing just in the same way as when you listen, in an unprejudiced way, you hear all sounds coming out of silence. It is amazing.

Silence is the origin of sound just as space is the origin of stars, and woman is the origin of man. If you listen and pay close attention to what is, you will discover that there is no past, no future, and no one listening. You cannot hear yourself listening. You live in the eternal now and you are that. It is really extremely simple, and that is the way it is.”
― Alan Watts

#4

You don’t look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
― Alan Watts

#5

“For we have never actually understood the revolutionary sense beneath them – the incredible truth that what religion calls the vision of God is found in giving up any belief in the idea of God.”
― Alan Watts

#6

“This is the real secret of life – to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it ‘work’, realize it is a play.”
― Alan Watts

#7

“So you see, if you become aware of the fact that you are all of your own body, and that the beating of your heart is not just something that happens to you, but something you’re doing, then you become aware also in the same moment and at the same time that you’re not only
beating your heart, but that you are shining the sun. Why?

Because the process of your bodily existence and its rhythms is a process, an energy system which is continuous with the shining of the sun, just like the East River, here, is a continuous energy system, and all the waves in it are activities of the whole East River, and that’s continuous with the Atlantic Ocean, and that’s all one energy system and finally the Atlantic ocean gets around to being the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, etc., and so all the waters of the Earth are a continuous energy system.

It isn’t just that the East River is part of it. You can’t draw any line and say ‘Look, this is where the East River ends and the rest of it begins,’ as if you can in the parts of an automobile, where you can say ‘This is definitely part of the generator, here, and over here is a spark plug.’ There’s not that kind of isolation between the elements of nature.”
― Alan Watts

#8

A scholar tries to learn something every day; a student of Buddhism tries to unlearn something daily.
― Alan Watts

#9

“It is interesting that Hindus, when they speak of the creation of the universe do not call it the work of God, they call it the play of God, the Vishnu Lila, Lila meaning play. And they look upon the whole manifestation of all the universes as a play, as a sport, as a kind of dance — Lila perhaps being somewhat related to our word lilt.”
― Alan Watts

#10

Alan Watts Saying Image

“Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”
― Alan Watts

#11

“Inability to accept the mystic experience is more than an intellectual handicap. Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment is a serious and dangerous hallucination. For in a civilization equipped with immense technological power, the sense of alienation between man and nature leads to the use of technology in a hostile spirit – to the “conquest” of nature instead of intelligent co-operation with nature.”
― Alan Watts

#12

Peace can be made only by those who are peaceful, and love can be shown only by those who love. No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.”
― Alan Watts

#13

“For unless one is able to live fully in the present, the future is a hoax. There is no point whatever in making plans for a future which you will never be able to enjoy. When your plans mature, you will still be living for some other future beyond. You will never, never be able to sit back with full contentment and say, “Now, I’ve arrived!” Your entire education has deprived you of this capacity because it was preparing you for the future, instead of showing you how to be alive now.”
― Alan Watts

#14

When we attempt to exercise power or control over someone else, we cannot avoid giving that person the very same power or control over us.
― Alan Watts

#15

“But the transformation of consciousness undertaken in Taoism and Zen is more like the correction of faulty perception or the curing of a disease. It is not an acquisitive process of learning more and more facts or greater and greater skills, but rather an unlearning of wrong habits and opinions. As Lao Tzu said, “The scholar gains every day, but the Taoist loses every day.”
― Alan Watts

#16

“When you find out that there was never anything in the dark side to be afraid of, nothing is left but to love.”
― Alan Watts

#17

“Whether we like it or not, change comes, and the greater the resistance, the greater the pain. Buddhism perceives the beauty of change, for life is like music in this: if any note or phrase is held for longer than its appointed time, the melody is lost. Thus Buddhism may be summed up in two phrases: “Let go!” and “Walk on!” Drop the craving for self, for permanence, for particular circumstances, and go straight ahead with the movement of life.”
― Alan Watts

#18

Zen is a liberation from time. For if we open our eyes and see clearly, it becomes obvious that there is no other time than this instant, and that the past and the future are abstractions without any concrete reality.”
― Alan Watts

#19

Money is a way of measuring wealth but is not wealth in itself. A chest of gold coins or a fat wallet of bills is of no use whatsoever to a wrecked sailor alone on a raft. He needs real wealth, in the form of a fishing rod, a compass, an outboard motor with gas, and a female companion. But this ingrained and archaic confusion of money with wealth is now the main reason we are not going ahead full tilt with the development of our technological genius for the production of more than adequate food, clothing, housing, and utilities for every person on earth.”
― Alan Watts

#20

Quote About Universe Image

“You are an aperture through which the universe is looking at and exploring itself.”
― Alan Watts

#21

“Zen Buddhism is a way and a view of life which does not belong to any of the formal categories of modern Western thought. It is not religion or philosophy; it is not a psychology or a type of science. It is an example of what is known in India and China as a “way of liberation,” and is similar in this respect to Taoism, Vedanta, and Yoga. As will soon be obvious, a way of liberation can have no positive definition. It has to be suggested by saying what it is not, somewhat as a sculptor reveals an image by the act of removing pieces of stone from a block.”
― Alan Watts

#22

“The art of living… is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive.”
― Alan Watts

#23

“To travel is to be alive, but to get somewhere is to be dead.”
― Alan Watts

#24

“A priest once quoted to me the Roman saying that a religion is dead when the priests laugh at each other across the altar. I always laugh at the altar, be it Christian, Hindu, or Buddhist, because real religion is the transformation of anxiety into laughter.”
― Alan Wilson Watts

#25

“Imagine a multidimensional spider’s web in the early morning covered with dew drops. And every dew drop contains the reflection of all the other dew drops. And, in each reflected dew drop, the reflections of all the other dew drops in that reflection. And so ad infinitum. That is the Buddhist conception of the universe in an image.”
― Alan Watts

#26

“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.”
― Alan Watts

#27

“People can’t be talked out of illusions. If a person believes that the earth is flat, you can’t talk him out of that, he knows that it’s flat. He’ll go down to the window and see that it’s obvious, it looks flat. So the only way to convince him that it isn’t is to say, “Well let’s go and find the edge.”
― Alan Watts

#28

“To the Taoist mentality, the aimless, empty life does not suggest anything depressing. On the contrary, it suggests the freedom of clouds and mountain streams, wandering nowhere, of flowers in impenetrable canyons, beautiful for no one to see, and of the ocean surf forever washing the sand, to no end.”
― Alan Watts

#29

Seeking the Buddha Image

“If a man seeks the Buddha, that man loses the Buddha.”
― Alan Watts

#30

“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”
― Alan Watts

#31

“A mind that is single and sincere is not interested in being good, in conducting relations with other people so as to live up to a rule. Nor, on the other hand, is it interested in being free, in acting perversely just to prove its independence.”
― Alan Watts

#32

“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However, if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last, you found out.”
― Alan Watts

#33

“The more a thing tends to be permanent, the more it tends to be lifeless.”
― Alan Watts

#34

“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation.

We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
― Alan Watts

#35

“Problems that remain persistently insoluble should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way.”
― Alan Watts

#36

“To Taoism that which is absolutely still or absolutely perfect is absolutely dead, for without the possibility of growth and change there can be no Tao. In reality, there is nothing in the universe which is completely perfect or completely still; it is only in the minds of men that such concepts exist.”
― Alan Watts

#37

“But spontaneity is not by any means a blind, disorderly urge, a mere power of caprice. A philosophy restricted to the alternatives of conventional language has no way of conceiving an intelligence which does not work according to plan, according to a one-at-a-time order of thought. Yet the concrete evidence of such intelligence is right to hand in our own thoughtlessly ordered bodies. For the Tao does not ‘know’ how it produces the universe just as we do not ‘know’ how we construct our brains.”
― Alan Watts

#38

“Much of the secret of life consists in knowing how to laugh, and also how to breathe.”
― Alan Watts

#39

“We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.”
― Alan Watts

#40

Alan Watts Quote About Truth Image

“Only doubtful truths need defense.”
― Alan Watts

#41

“We have made a problem for ourselves by confusing the intelligible with the fixed. We think that making sense out of life is impossible unless the flow of events can somehow be fitted into a framework of rigid forms. To be meaningful, life must be understandable in terms of fixed ideas and laws, and these, in turn, must correspond to unchanging and eternal realities behind the shifting scene. But if this what “making sense out of life” means, we have set ourselves the impossible task of making fixity out of flux.”
― Alan Watts

#42

“In reality, there are no separate events. Life moves along like water, it’s all connected to the source of the river is connected to the mouth and the ocean.”
― Alan Watts

#43

“There are, then, two ways of understanding an experience. The first is to compare it with the memories of other experiences, and so to name and define it. This is to interpret it in accordance with the dead and the past. The second is to be aware of it as it is, as when, in the intensity of joy, we forget past and future, let the present be all, and thus do not even stop to think, “I am happy.”
― Alan Watts

#44

“Stay in the center, and you will be ready to move in any direction.”
― Alan Watts

#45

“Certainly the revolutionary thinker must go beyond thought. He knows that almost all his best ideas come to him when thinking has stopped. He may have struggled and struggled to understand a problem in terms of old ways of thinking, only to find it impossible. But when thought stops from exhaustion, the mind is open to see the problem as it is – not as it is verbalized – and at once it is understood.”
― Alan Watts

#46

“For if we open our eyes and see clearly, it becomes obvious that there is no other time than this instant, and that the past and the future are abstractions without any concrete reality.”
― Alan Watts

#47

“When you are dying and coming to life in each moment, would-be scientific predictions about what will happen after death are of little consequence. The whole glory of it is that we do not know. Ideas of survival and annihilation are alike based on the past, on memories of waking and sleeping, and, in their different ways, the notions of everlasting continuity and everlasting nothingness are without meaning. It needs but slight imagination to realize that everlasting time is a monstrous nightmare, so that between heaven and hell as ordinarily understood there is little to choose.”
― Alan Watts

#48

“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you’ll spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing thing you don’t like doing, which is stupid.”
― Alan Watts

#49

“Paradox as it may seem, we likewise find life meaningful only when we have seen that it is without purpose, and know the “mystery of the universe” only when we are convinced that we know nothing about it at all.”
― Alan Watts

#50

“The art of meditation is a way of getting into touch with reality, and the reason for it is that most civilized people are out of touch with reality because they confuse the world as it with the world as they think about it and talk about it and describe it.

For, on the one hand, there is the real world and on the other, there is a whole system of symbols about that world which we have in our minds. These are very very useful symbols, all civilization depends on them, but like all good things they have their disadvantages, and the principle disadvantage of symbols is that we confuse them with reality, just as we confuse money with actual wealth.”
― Alan Wilson Watts

#51

Alan Watts Inspirational Quotes Image

“You do not play a sonata in order to reach the final chord, and if the meanings of things were simply in ends, composers would write nothing but finales.”
― Alan Watts

#52

“We think that the world is limited and explained by its past. We tend to think that what happened in the past determines what is going to happen next, and we do not see that it is exactly the other way around! What is always the source of the world is the present; the past doesn’t explain a thing. The past trails behind the present like the wake of a ship and eventually disappears.”
― Alan Wilson Watts

#53

“To remain stable is to refrain from trying to separate yourself from a pain because you know that you cannot. Running away from fear is fear, fighting pain is pain, trying to be brave is being scared. If the mind is in pain, the mind is pain. The thinker has no other form than his thought. There is no escape.”
― Alan Watts

#54

“Other people teach us who we are. Their attitudes to us are the mirror in which we learn to see ourselves, but the mirror is distorted. We are, perhaps, rather dimly aware of the immense power of our social environment.”
― Alan Watts

#55

“To put it still more plainly: the desire for security and the feeling of insecurity are the same thing. To hold your breath is to lose your breath. A society based on the quest for security is nothing but a breath-retention contest in which everyone is as taut as a drum and as purple as a beet. We look for this security by fortifying and enclosing ourselves in innumerable ways.

We want the protection of being “exclusive” and “special,” seeking to belong to the safest church, the best nation, the highest class, the right set, and the “nice” people. These defenses lead to divisions between us, and so to more insecurity demanding more defenses. Of course, it is all done in the sincere belief that we are trying to do the right things and live in the best way; but this, too, is a contradiction.”
― Alan Watts

#56

“A man does not really begin to be alive until he has lost himself until he has released the anxious grasp which he normally holds upon his life, his property, his reputation, and position.”
― Alan Watts

#57

“But nirvana is a radical transformation of how it feels to be alive: it feels as if everything were myself, or as if everything – including “my” thoughts and actions – were happening of itself. There are still efforts, choices, and decisions, but not the sense that “I make them”; they arise of themselves in relation to circumstances. This is, therefore, to feel life, not as an encounter between subject and object, but as a polarized field where the contest of opposites has become the play of opposites.”
― Alan Watts

#58

“Irrevocable commitment to any religion is not only intellectual suicide; it is positive unfaith because it closes the mind to any new vision of the world. Faith is, above all, openness – an act of trust in the unknown.”
― Alan Watts

#59

“Like love, the light or guidance of truth that influences us exists only in living form, not in principles or rules or expectations or advice, however widely circulated”
― Alan Watts

#60

“Yet again, the more you strive for some kind of perfection or mastery — in morals, in art or in spirituality — the more you see that you are playing a rarified and lofty form of the old ego-game, and that your attainment of any height is apparent to yourself and to others only by contrast with
someone else’s depth or failure.”
― Alan Watts

#61

“If then, my awareness of the past and future makes me less aware of the present, I must begin to wonder whether I am actually living in the real world.”
― Alan Watts

#62

“The answer to the problem of suffering is not away from the problem but in it. The inevitability of pain will not be met by deadening sensitivity but by increasing it, by exploring and feeling out the manner in which the natural organism itself wants to react and which its innate wisdom has provided.”
― Alan Watts

#63

“I have no other self than the totality of things of which I am aware.”
― Alan Watts

#64

Quote About Change Alan Watts Image

“The only way to make sense of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
― Alan Watts

#65

“When life is empty, with respect to the past, and aimless, with respect to the future, the vacuum is filled by the present – normally reduced to a hairline, a split second in which there is no time for anything to happen.”
― Alan Watts

“Intellect is not going to be your home. It is a small instrument, to be used only for passing from instinct to intuition. So only the person who uses his intellect to go beyond it can be called intelligent. Intuition is existential. Instinct is natural. Intellect is just groping in the dark. The faster you move beyond intellect, the better; intellect can be a barrier to those who think nothing is beyond it. Intellect can be a beautiful passage for those who understand that there is certainly something beyond it.” ~ Osho

#36

“It turns out that our intuition is a greater genius than we are.” ~ Jim Shepard

They simply sit on the bridge thinking they have arrived home.” ~ Osho

#56

“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy.

JoyBell C.

#57

“Does a person living through intuition always succeed? No, but he is always happy — whether he succeeds or not. And a person not living intuitively is always unhappy whether he succeeds or not. Success is not the criterion because success depends on many things. Happiness is the criterion because happiness depends only on you. You may not succeed because others are competitors there. Even if you are working intuitively, others may be working more cunningly, more cleverly, more calculatingly, more violently, more immorally. So success depends on many other things; success is a social phenomenon.” ~ Osho

#62

“The truth about life and lie about life is not measured by others but by your intuition, which never lies.” ~ Santosh Kalwar

#63

“The very word intuition has to be understood. You know the word tuition—tuition comes from outside, somebody teaches you, the tutor. Intuition means something that arises within your being; it is your potential, that’s why it is called intuition. Wisdom is never borrowed, and that which is borrowed is never wisdom. Unless you have your own wisdom, your own vision, your own clarity, your own eyes to see, you will not be able to understand the mystery of existence.” ~ Osho

#64

“I want you to make room for your intuition, your intention, and what your soul is really yearning for. When you live with your intuition, life actually becomes simpler because it’s clearer how you want to invest it and why. Let the voice of your intuition be the loudest voice you hear.” ~ Jay Shetty

“Intuition is the highest form of intelligence, transcending all individual abilities and skills.” ~ Sylvia Clare

#66

“The true spiritual secret is this: what you seek, you already are. True success is discovering your inner divinity~ it’s the ability to love and have compassion, trust your intuition, and awaken to your unlimited creative nature.” ~ Deepak Chopra

#67

“You will never follow your own inner voice until you clear up the doubts in your mind.” ~ Roy T. Bennett

#68

“Intuition comes in several forms:
– a sudden flash of insight, visual or auditory
– a predictive dream
– a spinal shiver of recognition as something is occurring or told to you
– a sense of knowing something already
– a sense of deja vu
– a snapshot image of a future scene or event
– knowledge, perspective or understanding divined from tools which respond to the subconscious mind”
~ Sylvia Clare

#69

“We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe. All we have to do is listen — feel and sense it with an open heart. Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times, it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane. Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart.” ~ CJ Heck

#70

“Life is really very simple. In each moment, we have the opportunity to choose between saying “yes” or “no”, to listen to our intuition, to listen to our true inner voice, the Existential voice within ourselves. When we say “yes”, we have contact with Existence and we receive nourishment, love, joy, support and inspiration. When we say “no”, we create a separation from life and begin to create dreams and expectations of how it should be. We begin to live in the memories of the past and in the fantasies of the future – as if any other time than here and now really could make us happy and satisfied.” ~ Swami Dhyan Giten

55+ Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#1
Matrix quotes image

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

#2

“Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mediocre educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and educate yourself if you’ve got any guts. Some of you like Pep rallies and plastic robots who tell you what to read.” ~ Frank Zappa

#3

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” ~ George Orwell

#4

“We laugh at sheep because sheep just follow the one in front. We humans have out-sheeped the sheep, because at least the sheep need a sheep dog to keep them in line. Humans keep each other in line. And they do it by ridiculing or condemning anyone who commits the crime, and that’s what it’s become, of being different.” ~ David Icke

#5

“The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. A prison for your mind.” ~ Morpheus

#6

“It has always seemed strange to me…The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.” ~ John Steinbeck

“All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.” ~ Noam Chomsky

#8

“I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.'” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant.” ~ George Carlin

#9

“Orthodoxy means not thinking – not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.” ~ George Orwell

#10

“The reason we are so controlled is not that we don’t have the power to decide our own destiny, it is that we give that power away every minute of our lives. When something happens that we don’t like, we look for someone else to blame. When there is a problem in the world, we say “What are they going to do about it”. At which point they, who have secretly created the problem in the first place, respond to this demand by introducing a ‘solution’ – more centralisation of power and erosion of freedom. If you want to give more powers to the police, security agencies and military, and you want the public to demand you do it, then ensure there is more crime, violence and terrorism, and then it’s a cinch to achieve your aims. Once the people are in fear of being burgled, mugged or bombed, they will demand that you take their freedom away to protect them from what they have been manipulated to fear. The Oklahoma bombing is a classic of this kind, as I detail in ..And The Truth Shall Set You Free. I call this technique problem-reaction-solution. Create the problem, encourage the reaction “something must be done”, and then offer the solution. It is summed up by the Freemason motto ‘Ordo Ab Chao’ -order out of chaos. Create the chaos and then offer the way to restore order. Your order. The masses are herded and directed by many and varios forms of emotional and mental control. It is the only way it coud be done.” ~ David Icke

#11

“I’ll show these people what you don’t want them to see. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible.” ~ Neo

Thought-Provoking Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#12
Living in the Matrix quote Image

Comfort is a drug. Once you get used to it, it becomes addicting. Give a weak person consistent stimulation, tasty food, cheap entertainment and they’ll throw their ambitions right out the window. The comfort zone is where dreams go and die.”

#13

“The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on — because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.” ~ Noam Chomsky

#14

“All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.” ~ George Orwell

#15

“When we give our minds and our responsibility away, we give our lives away. If enough of us do it, we give the world away and that is precisely what we have been doing throughout known human history. This is why the few have always controlled the masses. The only difference today is that the few are now manipulating the entire planet because of the globalisation of business, banking and communications. The foundation of that control has always been the same : keep the people in ignorance, fear and at war with themselves,. Divide, rule and conquer while keeping the most important knowledge to yourself.” ~ David Icke

#16

“The Matrix is a computer-generated dream world, built to keep us under control in order to change a human being into this.” ~ Morpheus

#17
quotes about living in the system image

”You were born to do more than just go to school, get a job, pay bills and die. Don’t settle for mediocrity, just because everyone else does.”

#18

“When it comes down to it, the only knowledge that really matters is, how to purify water, how to grow your own food, how to cook, how to build, and how to love. And funny enough, we’re not taught any of it in school. It’s almost like they want your head filled with useless crap that will never benefit your life so you’re always dependent on government and corporations.” ~ Don Freeman

#19

“If people cannot write well, they cannot think well, and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.” ~ George Orwell

#20

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.” ~ David Icke

#21

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system.” ~ Morpheus

#22

“Be the glitch you want to see in the Matrix.”

#23

“When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons.” ~ Anaïs Nin

#24

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.” ~ Frantz Fanon

#25

“Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.” ~ Morpheus

#26

“Technology is taking over mind control programmes today, which allows them to go direct to the brain’s information processing systems through the medium of electricity, electromagnetism, frequency, and microchips.” ~ David Icke

#27

“While science looks for the source of the projected holographic world and the evidence of the Matrix, meditation helps us to find out the true nature of reality and who we really are. Because we are made in the image and likeness of God we possess the same ability to create within ourselves. This process is called Imagination. You can imagine anything you want in your mind and it will exist as a holographic illusion or “simulation” that exists within your own mind. The degree of complexity of your imagined world is only limited by your current degree and ability to maintain a continuous stream of concentrated thought within your own mind. So instead of losing sleep over if we live in a simulated world, we should remember that we can explore and experience the nature of the universe directly by learning to meditate.” ~ Katya Ki

Provocative Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#28
Quotes about the Matrix image

”We are energy masquerading as humans.”

#29

“The Matrix is real. It exists inside the minds of the masses through social, cultural, political, educational, and religious indoctrination.” ~ Unknown

#30

“The pineal gland is activated by light and controls the body’s bio-rhythms in concert with the hypothalamus gland which regulates hunger, thirst, sexual desire, and the biological clock that dictates how fast we age. Look at the potential for mass control if you can externally suppress and manipulate the pineal and hypothalamus glands alone. You can make it much harder to perceive beyond the five senses, decide how quickly people age, how much they want sex when they are hungry and thirsty, and for how long. This is the key reason for putting sodium fluoride into water supplies and toothpaste. The pineal gland absorbs more fluoride than any other part of the body and becomes calcified by this highly damaging toxin. Sodium fluoride is an appalling waste product of the aluminum industry and has been used in rat poison. It causes cancer, genetic damage, Alzheimer’s disease, disrupts the endocrine system, and dumbs down the brain. It was added to drinking water in the Nazi concentration camps to make the inmates more acquiescent and docile.” ~ David Icke

#31

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” ~ George Orwell

#32

“Let me tell you why you’re here. You know something. What you know, you can’t explain, but you feel it. You felt it your entire life. There’s something’s wrong with the world. You don’t know what, but it’s there. Like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?” ~ Morpheus

#33

“Denial is the most predictable of all human responses.” ~ The Architect

Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#34
Matrix quote by Jim Carrey image

”What fascinates me is that hardly anyone is wondering what we’re actually doing on this planet. Most accepted the work-eat-entertainment-sleep cycle as life and have no desire for a deeper understanding of our purpose in this Universe.” ~ Jim Carrey

#35

“15 years ago, the Internet was an escape from the real world. Today, the real world is an escape from the Internet.” ~ Unknown

#36

“Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself.” ~ George Orwell

#37

“Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without.” ~ Merovingian

#38

“When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.” ~ David Icke

#39

“Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.” ~ Jim Morrison

Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#40
quotes about society image

”In a society that profits from your self-doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act.” ~ Caroline Caldwell

#41

“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

#42

“He who controls the money supply of a nation controls the nation.” ~ James A. Garfield

#43

“The problem was you had to keep choosing between one evil or another, and no matter what you chose, they sliced a little bit more off you, until there was nothing left. At the age of 25, most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidates who reminded them most of themselves. I had no interests. I had no interest in anything. I had no idea how I was going to escape. At least the others had some taste for life. They seemed to understand something that I didn’t understand. Maybe I was lacking. It was possible. I often felt inferior. I just wanted to get away from them. But there was no place to go.” ~ Charles Bukowski

#44

“If you want to know the outcome of a game before the game has even started, you need to control each side.” ~ David Icke

#45

“As soon as you are born, you’re given a name, a religion, a nationality and a race. You spend the rest of your life defining and defending a fictional identity.” ~ Brandon Garic Notch

Mind-Bending Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#46
social media quote image

”Every social media trend & challenge is a psychological operation to see how dumbed down society really is…”

#47

“Now, there’s one thing you might have noticed I don’t complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain’t going to do any good; you’re just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it’s not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here… like, the public.” ~ George Carlin

#48

“We are very defensive, and therefore aggressive, when we hold on to a particular belief, dogmas, or when we worship our particular nationality, with the rag that is called the flag.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

#49

“That’s how it is with people. Nobody cares how it works as long as it works.” ~ Councillor Hamann

#50

“How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 8:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?” ~ Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Living In the Matrix

#51
quote about life in life in the system image

”Most people don’t really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.”

#52

“The nine-to-five is one of the greatest atrocities sprung upon mankind. You give your life away to a function that doesn’t interest you.” ~ Charles Bukowski

#53

“Education is a system of imposed ignorance.” ~ Noam Chomsky

#54

“It was possible, no doubt, to imagine a society in which wealth, in the sense of personal possessions and luxuries, should be evenly distributed, while power remained in the hands of a small privileged caste. But in practice such a society could not long remain stable. For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance.” ~ George Orwell

#55

“The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.” ~ George Orwell

#56

“The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship, you don’t have to waste your time voting.” ~ Charles Bukowski

”The same people who sell the panic, sell the pill.”

50 Inner Child Quotes

#1
inner child quotes image

“Hold the hand of the child that lives in your soul. For this child, nothing is impossible.” ~ Paulo Coelho

#2

“The real you is still a little child who never grew up. Sometimes that little child comes out when you are having fun or playing when you feel happy when you are painting, or writing poetry, or playing the piano, or expressing yourself in some way. These are the happiest moments of your life – when the real you comes out when you don’t care about the past and you don’t worry about the future. You are childlike.” ~ Miguel Ruiz

#3

“The inner child is a “part” of our personality that stores all our memories, feelings, needs, reactions, attitudes towards ourselves and others, and behaviors that we have preserved from our childhood.” ~ Katya Ki

#4

“Why is working with the inner child essential on the spiritual awakening journey? The answer is that our deepest wounds are carried by the child within. These wounds create tensions, blockages, or contractions within our hearts, minds, and bodies. And when we’re contracted, we become trapped in a tightly-bound separate self, also known as the ego. As you may (or may not) already know, the ego is the source of our suffering as it creates the illusion that we’re cut off from our True Nature. When our inner child is stuck in pain, it fuels this contracted ego. And so, inner child work is a vital practice on the spiritual journey, for, with it, we heal, evolve, and awaken.” ~ Mateo Sol

#5

“In my soul, I am still that small child who did not care about anything else but the beautiful colours of a rainbow.” ~ Papiya Ghosh

#6

“I am often accused of being childish. I prefer to interpret that as child-like. I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things. I tend to exaggerate and fantasize and embellish. I still listen to instinctual urges. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. I never water my garden without soaking myself. It has been after such times of joy that I have achieved my greatest creativity and produced my best work.” ~ Leo Buscaglia

#7

“Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery: He has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his soul but his life.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

#8

“Imagination is our inner-child and creativity, its playground.” ~ Jaeda DeWalt

#9

“If by growing up you mean allowing the adult within me to abandon the child within me, I have no interest in such a horrid proposition. If instead you mean to let each enhance the other at the exclusion of neither, I have every interest.” ~ Craig D. Lounsbrough

Inspirational Inner Child Quotes
#10
child within quote image

”The most sophisticated people I’ve ever known had just one thing in common: they were all in touch with their inner children.” ~ Jim Henson

#11

“Your inner child is an essential part of the intricate patchwork that makes up your identity. When you ignore or deny your inner child, he/she is doomed to wither away within the deep dark vaults of your unconscious mind.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#12

“We as adults minimize our inner child’s desires. We silence their voices and messages. As we grow older into adulthood the weight of worldly expectations and survival requirements diminish our inner child’s presence. We soon forget that part of us is still very much alive and is still a very big part of who we are. We’re programmed and taught to ignore and abolish this very important aspect of ourselves. Through years of indoctrination and programming, we learn to suppress and forget our inner child. With all the responsibilities and duties on our plate, we can become hardened, calloused, and insensitive to the very fragile, vulnerable and lighthearted parts of ourselves that live in our inner children. Many of us become addicted to seriousness, structure, and repetitive behaviors. We forget how it feels to be a child: the playful, imaginative, innocence, and softness that comes with our inner child. This aspect of ourselves, though largely ignored, wants to be acknowledged and allowed to be activated.” ~ Angela Fitts

#13

“I think my inner child wants to take over the world.” ~ Mark Foster

#14

“The inner child healing takes place through the healing of its “wounded part”. That is, through working with the trauma of the relationship. And as a result of the healing, our ability to have close, trusting, loving relationships with others increases.” ~ Katya Ki

#15

“As children, we perceived the world very differently from our adult selves. Because of this, many of the things we presently assume never hurt us as children may have left deep scars. This is why it’s important to never make assumptions about your inner child. Through inner child work, you can learn to grieve, heal, and resolve any sources of trauma you’ve been unconsciously holding on to for years. This can liberate you to live a life of true adulthood, emotional balance, spiritual maturity, and wellbeing.” ~ Mateo Sol

#16

“I love fantasy; I love imagination – that’s the inner child in me.” ~ Hannah John-Kamen

#17

“See the world through the eyes of your inner child. The eyes that sparkle in awe and amazement as they see love, magic and mystery in the most ordinary things.” ~ Henna Sohail

#18

“Many of us are guilty of not taking enough time to dial into our inner child’s voice.” ~ Kim Ha Campbell

Inner Child Quotes

#19
quotes on children image

”It sounds corny, but I’ve promised my inner child that never again will I ever abandon myself for anything or anyone else again.” ~ Wynonna Judd

#20

“Although we may have suffered misfortune as a child, it is never too late to re-live our childhoods and reconnect to that childlike side of ourselves. When we take responsibility for our happiness in life, we have the power to feel safe, heal ourselves, and create greater wholeness. This gift can never be taken away from us.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#21

“Within us all is a radiant inner child bathed in joy.” ~ Amy Leigh Mercree

#22

“There’s a natural order and universal flow taking place in every moment. As children our resilience, presence, and acceptance to what is happening in every moment is remarkable. We were more likely to allow what is. We as adults are always practicing control. We are always planning out our lives and leave little to no room for flow in our day to day lives. We become rigid and unwilling to change or welcome unexpected occurrences. The reality is that life is in a constant state of flow and change. The problem comes when we won’t allow ourselves fluidity. By being in flow you step into the higher stream of consciousness that is at work. This is when real-life magic happens and unfolds.” ~ Angela Fitts

#23

“Honor your inner child by losing yourself in simple pleasures.” ~ Kim del Valle Walker

#24

“My idea is to bring out the inner child that my generation has inside, which does not go to sleep because of so much angst over the day-to-day routine. With so much going on, you start tuning out emotions and surprises.” ~ Thalia

#25

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” ~ Pablo Picasso

#26

“The World needs therapy because the world is missing love. In a really loving world, no therapy will be needed at all. Love will be enough, more than enough. Hugging is only a gesture of love, of warmth, of caring. The very feel of the warmth flowing from the other person melts many Illnesses in you, melts the ice-like, cold ego. It makes you again a child… If you go deep into a person, you will always find the innocent child; and to contact that innocent child is therapeutic. Hugging gives you an immediate contact with the child. If you hug somebody with warmth, love, if it is not just an impotent gesture; if it is meaningful, significant, true, if your heart is flowing through it, immediately you come in contact with the child, with the innocent child. And the innocent child, even for a single moment surfacing, makes a tremendous difference because the innocence of the child is always healthy and whole; it is uncorrupted. You have reached to the innermost core of the person where no corruption has ever entered, you have reached to the virgin core. And just making the virgin core throb again with life is enough. You have triggered a process of healing.” ~ Osho

#27

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” ~ C.S. Lewis

Inner Child Quotes
#28
inner child creativity quote image

”Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.” ~ Hugh Magnus MacLeod of MacLeod

#29

“When our inner child is not nurtured and nourished, our minds gradually close to new ideas, unprofitable commitments and the surprises of the Spirit.” ~ Brennan Manning

#30

“Your inner child does not disappear once you become an adult. On the contrary, it stays within you, reminding you of all the wounds you haven’t healed yet. There is a variety of symptoms that can point to a wounded inner child. You may have just accepted or tried to ignore many of these behaviors in yourself. However, in order to heal, you need to confront the pain that caused the wounds.” ~ Katya Ki

#31

“Inner child work is essential. It’s the essence of growth as a whole person.” ~ Cheryl Richardson

#32

“Learning to work with your inner child isn’t about becoming childish again, it is about reconnecting with your childLIKE side. In other words, there is a big difference between being childish and childlike. Being childish can be thought of as behaving in an immature or naive way. Being childlike on the other hand can be thought of as a state of purity and innocence. We all have the capacity to experience our original innocence; that period in our lives when we saw the world with openness and wonder.” ~ Mateo Sol

#33

“The great man is he who does not lose his child’s heart.” ~ Mencius

#34

“So many times we blanket our lives with adult responsibilities without expressing and participating in things we loved to do as children. We take on this belief that those days are over or we place physical limitations on things we used to do as children. We think it would be foolish, or we feel ashamed for doing the things we loved as kids. The truth is that the more we express ourselves in things that brought us so much joy as a child, we will find that they still bring us as much, or more, joy as adults.” ~ Angela Fitts

#35

“Caring for your inner child has a powerful and surprisingly quick result: Do it and the child heals.” ~ Martha Beck

#36

“When we deny and snuff out the voice of the child within we accumulate heavy psychological baggage. This unexplored and unresolved baggage causes us to experience problems such as mental illnesses, physical ailments, and relationship dysfunction. In fact, it could be said that the lack of conscious relatedness to our own inner child is one of the major causes of the severe issues we see in today’s society. From the brutal way we treat the environment, to the cruel way we talk to ourselves, we have become completely separated from our original innocence.” ~ Mateo Sol

Thought-provoking Inner Child Quotes

quotes on playfulness image

”The opposite of play is not work. It’s depression.” ~ Brian Sutton-Smith

#38

“Make it a habit to talk to your inner child. You can also communicate by keeping a diary, asking your inner child a question, and then writing down the answer. The more you talk to your inner child the easier it’s going to be to hear his/her voice and the faster you will be healed.” ~ Katya Ki

#39

“The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.” ~ Stephen Nachmanovitch

#40

“Unfortunately, we live in a society that forces us to repress our inner child and “grow up.” But the truth is that while most adults physically “grown-up,” they never quite reach emotional or psychological adulthood. In other words, most “grown-ups” aren’t really adults at all. This leaves most people in a state of puerile fears, angers, and traumas that fester away in the unconscious mind for decades.” ~ Mateo Sol

#41

“The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

#42

“Your inner child represents your first original self that entered into this world; s/he contains your capacity to experience wonder, joy, innocence, sensitivity, and playfulness.” ~ Mateo Sol

#43

“Always bring out your inner child, be young at heart always, life is beautiful.” ~ Unknown

#44

”I believe that this neglected, wounded, inner child of the past is the major source of human misery.” ~ John Bradshaw

#45

“We take life and ourselves too seriously. Taking things personally or being too rigid steals our joy. Many people think that by being serious, focused, and structured will ensure some worldly success, but this is not true. We can tap into our inner child by keeping things lighthearted and finding humor in the small things. This is not to say that structure, discipline, and focus aren’t needed as well, but we can have these attributes and play them out with laughter and lightness behind them. Our inner child loves to explore, imagine, and try new things. When we stifle this part of ourselves we become tired, unsatisfied, and lack creation.” ~ Angela Fitts

#46

“I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.” ~ James Broughton

Inner Child Quotes & Sayings
#47
inner child quote image

“Let us liberate ourselves from any form of control. Let us focus on the inner drum, where the rhythm aligns with that of our heart. The measure of responsibility, equals to the need for evolution. Just listen, the inner child, let it whisper in your ear.” ~ Grigoris Deoudis

#48

“Inner child work is a vital component of the spiritual awakening journey because it reconnects us with a wounded element of ourselves: the child within. When we reconnect with this fragmented part of ourselves, we can begin to discover the root of many of our fears, phobias, insecurities, and sabotaging life patterns. This is where true healing and liberation happens!” ~ Mateo Sol

#49

“In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

#50

“As children, we use our imaginations all of the time. The brain of a child, for the better part of the first 7 years of life, is in a theta state. This is imagination. This is when we create magical things. This is when we would lose ourselves in playful spaces. This part of ourselves is very important to keep active. This is how we co-create and bring into manifestation our dreams, intentions, and goals. Allow yourself time and space to lose yourself in your imagination. No dream is too big or unrealistic. Allow yourself to see things in your mind’s eye that make your heart swell with happiness and allow the tears of joy to flow. Our thoughts are electric and our emotions are magnetizing. This is how you create the timelines you want to play out in your life. Don’t ever downplay or diminish your imagination, it is a very powerful tool.” ~ Angela Fitts
