That which you call your soul or spirit is your consciousness, and that which you call 'free will' is your mind's freedom to think or not, the only will you have, your only freedom, the choice that controls all the choices you make and determines your life and your character.  Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982), Atlas Shrugged


The real questions are the ones that obtrude upon your consciousness whether you like it or not, the ones that make your mind start vibrating like a jackhammer, the ones that you "come to terms with" only to discover that they are still there. The real questions refuse to be placated. They barge into your life at the times when it seems most important for them to stay away. They are the questions asked most frequently and answered most inadequately, the ones that reveal their true natures slowly, reluctantly, most often against your will.  Ingrid Bengis

I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.  Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

"It happens to each according to his consciousness," is the Law of Consciousness. L. S. Barksdale

I used to wake up at 4 A.M. and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.  James Thurber (1894 - 1961)
