Quotes from this Download Set: “We don’t recognize that our technological advancements have not made us happy.” • “First we must see that self-imprisonment is the situation.” • “You must leave the known to leave the prison.” • “Emptiness is extraordinarily full when it is not filtered through the haze of a belief system.” • “We must become expressions of, not consumers of, realization.”
