Born Richard Alpert 84 years ago today.
“We’re all just walking each other home.”
“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”
“The most exquisite paradox… as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can’t have it. The minute you don’t want power, you’ll have more than you ever dreamed possible.”
“Be here now.”
“Suffering is part of our training program for becoming wise.”
“Treat everyone you meet like God in drag.”
“The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.”
“What you meet in another being is the projection of your own level of evolution.”
“The next message you need is always right where you are.”
“We are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we are so deeply interconnected with one another.”
“It’s very different because the Indians live as if they are their souls and Americans live as if they are their egos.”
“Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation.”
