Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, Richard Bach

"What if a Siddharta or a Jesus came into our time, with power over the illusions of the world because he knew the reality behind them?"

Huggybear said…

One, Richard Bach

"What if you could find a way into those parallel worlds, it whispered. What if you could meet the Richard and Leslie you were before you made your worst mistakes and smartest moves? what if you could warn them, ask them any questions you dared? What might they know about living, about youth and age and dying, career and love and country, about peace and war, responsibility, choices and consequences, about the world you think is real?"

"Clouds don't worry about
falling into the sea because
they can't (a) fall or (b) drown.
But they are free
to believe they can,
and they may fear
if they wish."

"You are free to create
and honor
whatever past you choose,
to heal and transform
your present."

"Your harshest truths are dreams,
and your gentlest dreams are true."

"Everything is exactly as it is for a reason.
The crumb on your table is
no mystical reminder of the morning's cookie,
and it is there because you have
chosen not to remove it.
No exceptions."

"Just because somebody drops in in you from another dimension,
don't assume they're wiser than you
about anything at all, or
that they can do anything better
than you do yourself."

"Discarnate or mortal,
what matters about people is
what they know."

Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul, Richard Bach

"The opposite of loneliness, it's not togetherness. It is intimacy."

"Next to God, love is the word most mangled in every language. The highest form of regard between two people is friendship, and when love enters, friendship dies."

“That’s what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we’ve changed because of it, and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way is winning.”

“Boredom between two people doesn't come from being together physically. It comes from being apart mentally and spiritually.”

“Here is a test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: If you´re alive it isn't.”

"We're the bridge across forever, arching above the sea, adventuring for our pleasure, living mysteries for the fun of it, choosing disasters triumphs challenges impossible odds, testing ourselves over and again, learning love and love and love!"

The Bridge Across Forever: A True Love Story

Huggybear said…

"The best mysteries are the ones whose answers lie in front of us, in plain sight. The best solutions are those moments when all of a sudden we realize what we've known all along."

Hypnotizing Maria, Richard Bach

Huggybear said…

"Listen, my friend -
You case is like that of the
duck egg that is placed under
a hen. When the egg hatched,
the duckling walked about
with the mother hen until
they come to a pond.
The hen stayed on the bank.
The duckling went into the water.
And so it is with you.
After having tried the sea,
you find it your home. And if
others choose to stay on the
shore, you are not to blame..."

Handbook for Advanced Souls: Eternal Reminders for the Present Moment, Mark Andre Alexander

Huggybear said…

"You are Soul, immortal and free. You have always existed and always will exist. This world is a school where you learn, taking on thousands of roles, getting to play every story, every adventure, every joy and every pain. Countless times you've been male and female, master and slave, the great artist, the great leader, the great warrior, the great villain, the protagonist and antagonist on every conceivable world and plane of existence."

"After so many lives and loves and losses, you finally reach a point where you are simply repeating lifetimes and stories. And now you are ready for more. You are ready to serve all life with Divine Love. The Handbook for Advanced Souls waits here for you. A reminder of who you really are and what your next step is."
