But I can't manage to grow up and change shape. I'm still tiny, and staying that way, perhaps because I know the secret that everyone pretends to be unaware of, perhaps because I know that deep down we're all tiny.Delphine De Vigan Deep Mental Sayings By Delphine De Vigan: But I can't manage to grow up and change shape. I'm still tiny, and staying
In the Deep South, the unequal distribution of school funds based on Negroes' "mental inferiority" was one way the caste system maintained itself through the generations. "Inferior" students got inferior schools, but truly, it was the inferior schools that created the inferior students. The two years of study resulted in the book Deep South, a seminal book in modern anthropology.Alison Stewart Deep Mental Sayings By Alison Stewart: In the Deep South, the unequal distribution of school funds based on Negroes' "mental inferiority"
Xav!
Got you. Not letting you go.
I realised I wasn't alone in mental deep space; he had always been there and could pilot me home.
Joss Stirling Deep Mental Sayings By Joss Stirling: Xav!Got you. Not letting you go.I realised I wasn't alone in mental deep space; he
In confession occurs the breakthrough of the Cross. The root of all sin is pride, superbia. I want to be my own law, I have a right to my self, my hatred and my desires, my life and my death. The mind and flesh of man are set on fire by pride; for it is precisely in his wickedness that man wants to be as God. Confession in the presence of a brother is the profoundest kind of humiliation. It hurts, it cuts a man down, it is a dreadful blow to pride ... In the deep mental and physical pain of humiliation before a brother - which means, before God - we experience the Cross of Jesus as our rescue and salvation. The old man dies, but it is God who has conquered him. Now we share in the resurrection of Christ and eternal life.Dietrich Bonhoeffer Deep Mental Sayings By Dietrich Bonhoeffer: In confession occurs the breakthrough of the Cross. The root of all sin is pride,
Every man's penis is the prettiest thing in the world to him. From the day he's born until the day he dies. It never loses its endless fascination. And, I kid you not, baby, the same is true of every woman and her pussy. It's the closest thing to a real, blind, helpless love and religious adoration that most people ever achieve. But they'd rather die than admit it. Homosexuality, the urge to kill, petty spites and treacheries, fantasies of sadism, masochism, transvestism, any weird thing you can name, they'll confess all that in a group therapy session. But that deep submerged constant narcissism, that perpetual mental masturbation, is the earliest and most powerful block. They'll never admit it.Robert Shea Deep Mental Sayings By Robert Shea: Every man's penis is the prettiest thing in the world to him. From the day
She is my mate. And my spy,' I said too quietly. 'And she is the High Lady of the Night Court.'
'What?' Mor whsipered.
I caressed a mental finger down that bond now hidden deep, deep within us, and said, 'If they had removed her other glove, they would have seen a second tatoo on her right arm. The twin to the other. Inked last night, when we crept out, found a priestess, and I swore her in as my High Lady.' ( ... ) 'Not consort, not wife. Feyre is High Lady of the Night Court.' My equal in every way; she would wear my crown, sit on a throne beside mine. Never sidelined, never designated to breeding and parties and child rearing. My queen.
Sarah J. Maas Deep Mental Sayings By Sarah J. Maas: She is my mate. And my spy,' I said too quietly. 'And she is the
I've said that I would play anything to do with 'Star Wars.' But really, deep down, I would love to come back as Darth Maul - that's what I want to do. I would go crazy, go mental, lock myself in a cabin, you know. Do the whole 'method' for two or three months, spear-fishing and stuff, just to play the character again.Ray Park Deep Mental Sayings By Ray Park: I've said that I would play anything to do with 'Star Wars.' But really, deep
He understood it to be another deep nudge from forces unseen, almost surely connected with the letter that had come along with his latest mental-disability check, reminding him that unless he did something publicly crazy before a date now less than a week away, he would no longer qualify for benefits.Thomas Pynchon Deep Mental Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: He understood it to be another deep nudge from forces unseen, almost surely connected with
Those that have lost their lives to suicide were good people, who were in deep, deep pain. Keep speaking about mental illness and keep it out of the darkness.Mariel Hemingway Deep Mental Sayings By Mariel Hemingway: Those that have lost their lives to suicide were good people, who were in deep,
When you meet another human being, you meet the physical self, then you meet the psychological self that's behind it, which is their mental conditioning, their patterns of behavior and so on. And then, there is a deeper level to every human being that transcends all of that. I can only sense that in another human being and relate to another human being on that deeper level if I have gone deep enough within myself.Eckhart Tolle Deep Mental Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: When you meet another human being, you meet the physical self, then you meet the
Mental stories can literally spoil a human life. It took me a long time to become aware of my mental commentary, such as: "Everything always goes wrong", "I won't be accepted", "I'm a failure" or "What's the point?" Those fears were deep-rooted and triggered many upsetting addictive patterns of behaviourChristopher Dines Deep Mental Sayings By Christopher Dines: Mental stories can literally spoil a human life. It took me a long time to
The writer's life is frightful. I have experienced deep dispair, mental ill and attempt of suicide.Lailah Gifty Akita Deep Mental Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: The writer's life is frightful. I have experienced deep dispair, mental ill and attempt of
On the ward there was hurt and pain so big and so deep that speech could not express it. I had been interested in philosophy, and suddenly philosophy came alive for me, for here the basic questions of human existence were not abstractions: they were embodied in human sufferingFrank X. Barron Deep Mental Sayings By Frank X. Barron: On the ward there was hurt and pain so big and so deep that speech
The scars from mental cruelty can be as deep and long-lasting as wounds from punches or slaps but are often not as
obvious. In fact, even among women who have experienced violence from a partner, half or more report that the man's emotional abuse is what is causing them the greatest harm.
Lundy Bancroft Deep Mental Sayings By Lundy Bancroft: The scars from mental cruelty can be as deep and long-lasting as wounds from punches
I find a naturalistic understanding of human nature to be indispensable to leading a wise and mature life, and it is often exhilarating. Wisdom consists in appreciating the preciousness and finiteness of our own existence, and therefore not squandering it; of being cognizant of what makes people everywhere tick, and therefore enhancing happiness and minimizing suffering; of being alert to limitations and flaws in our own judgments and decisions and passions, and thereby doing our best to circumvent them. The exhilaration comes from understanding that we are a part of natural world; that deep mysteries can be explained; and that the world
including our own mental lives
can be intelligible, rather than a source of superstition and ignorance. Yes, mortality sucks, but given that it exists, I'd rather know that than be kept in a childlike state of delusion.
Steven Pinker Deep Mental Sayings By Steven Pinker: I find a naturalistic understanding of human nature to be indispensable to leading a wise
The impact of the earthquake on mental health was huge and unimaginably deep in people's lives. Some lost all benchmarks and references because of their great loss, we still have people coming to clinics with mental health problems related to the earthquake. They talk about the earthquake, about being under the rubble.Reggie Fils-Aime Deep Mental Sayings By Reggie Fils-Aime: The impact of the earthquake on mental health was huge and unimaginably deep in people's
We dig holes for ourselves, of comfortable living, and it's hard to see just how deep down you are until you suddenly want to take a look at the world up there, some fresh air
and realise you can't get up. You're too far down.
Charlotte Eriksson Deep Mental Sayings By Charlotte Eriksson: We dig holes for ourselves, of comfortable living, and it's hard to see just how
Deep in the human nature, there is an almost irresistible tendency to concentrate physical and mental energy on attempts at solving problems that seem to be unsolvable. Indeed, for some kinds of active people, only the seemingly unsolvable problems can arouse their interest.Ragnar Frisch Deep Mental Sayings By Ragnar Frisch: Deep in the human nature, there is an almost irresistible tendency to concentrate physical and
Possible ways of attempting to distinguish counselling from psychotherapy include: that psychotherapy deals more with mental disorders than counselling; that psychotherapy is longer-term and deeper; and that psychotherapy is predominantly associated with medical settings. However, matters are by no means this clear-cut. Many counsellors work in medical settings, have helpees with recognized mental disorders, and do longer-term work that may or may not be of a deep psychodynamic nature.Richard Nelson-Jones Deep Mental Sayings By Richard Nelson-Jones: Possible ways of attempting to distinguish counselling from psychotherapy include: that psychotherapy deals more with
Perception shows how deep one can understand an issue or a phenomenon, the mental strength.Pearl Zhu Deep Mental Sayings By Pearl Zhu: Perception shows how deep one can understand an issue or a phenomenon, the mental strength.
Deep practice feels a bit like exploring a dark and unfamiliar room. You start slowly, you bump into furniture, stop, think, and start again. Slowly, and a little painfully, you explore the space over and over, attending to errors, extending your reach into the room a bit farther each time, building a mental map until you can move through it quickly and intuitively.Daniel Coyle Deep Mental Sayings By Daniel Coyle: Deep practice feels a bit like exploring a dark and unfamiliar room. You start slowly,
Really there are very few adults these days who possess the mental and emotional self-sufficiency necessary for leading satisfactory existence in these remote parts.
When the day light lasts for only five or six hours, when the Never Silent - as the Norsemen called the wind - howls down the corries and the snow is lying so deep that even the deer are unable to reach the croft in search of food, then one learns what it means to be cut off from the outside world, and either one grows to accept and appreciate spells of complete isolation, or else the isolation begins to sap one's confidence and to terrify.
Rowena Farre Deep Mental Sayings By Rowena Farre: Really there are very few adults these days who possess the mental and emotional self-sufficiency
There is a way of ordering our mental life on more than one level at once. On one level we can be thinking, discussing, seeing, calculating, meeting all the demands of external affairs, but deep within, behind the scenes at a profounder level we may also be in prayer and adoration, song and worship and a gentle receptiveness to divine breathings.Thomas Raymond Kelly Deep Mental Sayings By Thomas Raymond Kelly: There is a way of ordering our mental life on more than one level at
When you've had a psychotic breakdown it's always so difficult making that decision. You meet someone new and you wonder how much you should tell them? You wonder what that person's threshold of 'strange' is, and at what point in my story would I end up driving them away. That fear it's always there in the back of your mind. Those details you never really even admitted to yourself, but that somehow have to be told just as much as they have to be buried deep down.Cyma Rizwaan Khan Deep Mental Sayings By Cyma Rizwaan Khan: When you've had a psychotic breakdown it's always so difficult making that decision. You meet
We need this help from the outside because we don't know how to to do this for ourselves. We start with a deep deficit - a chasm really - when it comes to understanding and being tolerant of ourselves, and that's even before we go forth to do battle with the rest of the world. As soon as someone judges, criticizes, dismisses, or ignores, the cycle of pain and reactivity ramps up, compounded by shame, remorse, and rejection. The act of validation, simply saying, 'I can see things from your perspective,' can short-circuit that emotional detour.Kiera Van Gelder Deep Mental Sayings By Kiera Van Gelder: We need this help from the outside because we don't know how to to do
When had I stopped being a person with Paranoid Schizophrenia, and become a Paranoid Schizophrenic; defined by my illness?Michaela Haze Deep Mental Sayings By Michaela Haze: When had I stopped being a person with Paranoid Schizophrenia, and become a Paranoid Schizophrenic;
Picture the Bay of Bengal as an expanse of tropical water: still and blue in the calm of the January winter, or raging and turbid with silt at the peak of the summer rains. Picture it in two dimensions on a map, overlaid with a web of shipping channels and telegraph cables and inscribed with lines of distance. Now imagine the sea as a mental map: as a family tree of cousins, uncles, sisters, sons, connected by letters and journeys and stories. Think of it as a sea of debt, bound by advances and loans and obligations. Picture the Bay of Bengal even where it is absent - deep in the Malaysian jungle, where Hindu shrines sprout from the landscape as if washed up by the sea, left behind.Sunil S. Amrith Deep Mental Sayings By Sunil S. Amrith: Picture the Bay of Bengal as an expanse of tropical water: still and blue in
Christendom is not primarily a mental construct. It is above all a fact, indeed the longest historical experience the Church has had. Hence the deep impact it has made on its life and thought.Gustavo Gutierrez Deep Mental Sayings By Gustavo Gutierrez: Christendom is not primarily a mental construct. It is above all a fact, indeed the
I play drums, and I'd recommend it to anyone, except maybe your neighbors. It's great exercise - physical, mental, emotional, and social. It takes deep concentration but also activates concentration. If you're doing it right, it's always just a little harder than what you can actually pull off.Greg Saunier Deep Mental Sayings By Greg Saunier: I play drums, and I'd recommend it to anyone, except maybe your neighbors. It's great
The hidden strength is too deep a secret. But in the end ... in the end it is our only ally.Joanne Greenberg Deep Mental Sayings By Joanne Greenberg: The hidden strength is too deep a secret. But in the end ... in the
Sometimes it seems like "pain" is too obvious a place to turn for inspiration. Pain isn't always deep, anyway. Sometimes it's awful and that's it. Or boring. Surely other things can be as profound as pain.Ellen Forney Deep Mental Sayings By Ellen Forney: Sometimes it seems like "pain" is too obvious a place to turn for inspiration. Pain
Freud thought he was bringing the plague to the U.S.A., but the U.S.A. has victoriously resisted the psychoanalytical frost by real deep freezing, by mental and sexual refrigeration. They have countered the black magic of the Unconscious with the white magic of "doing your own thing," air conditioning, sterilization, mental frigidity and the cold media of information.Jean Baudrillard Deep Mental Sayings By Jean Baudrillard: Freud thought he was bringing the plague to the U.S.A., but the U.S.A. has victoriously
The disorders that psychology associates with the dissonance between what parents say to children and what children know to be reality - from deep insecurities to chronic anxiety to depression - are not to be found among the hunter-gatherers I have known. This is not to claim that they are people who know nothing of mental illness. Rather, it is to look at the absence of a particular kind of illness, one that in my own society is somewhere between common and the norm. The apparent sturdiness of the hunter-gatherer personality, the virtual universality of self-confidence and equanimity, the absence of anxiety disorders and most depressive illnesses - these may well be the benefits of using words to tell the truth.Hugh Brody Deep Mental Sayings By Hugh Brody: The disorders that psychology associates with the dissonance between what parents say to children and
The greatest souls have survived deep distress and mental-ill health.Lailah Gifty Akita Deep Mental Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: The greatest souls have survived deep distress and mental-ill health.
There are many paths to mastery, and if you are persistent you will certainly find one that suits you.
But a key component in the process is determining your mental and psychological strengths and working with them.
To rise to the level of mastery requires many hours of dedicated focus and practice. You cannot get there if your work brings you no joy and you are constantly struggling to overcome your own weaknesses.
You must look deep within and come to an understanding of these particular strengths and weaknesses you possess, being as realistic as possible. Knowing your strengths you can lean on them with utmost intensity.
Once you start in this direction, you will gain momentum. You will not be burdened by conventions and you will not be slowed down by having to deal with skills that go against your inclinations and strengths. In this way, your creative and intuitive powers will be naturally awakened.
Robert Greene Deep Mental Sayings By Robert Greene: There are many paths to mastery, and if you are persistent you will certainly find
One of the deep prejudices that the age of mechanism instilled in our culture, and that infects our religious and materialist fundamentalisms alike, is a version of the so-called genetic fallacy: to wit, the mistake of thinking that to have described a thing's material history or physical origins is to have explained that thing exhaustively. We tend to presume that if one can discover the temporally prior physical causes of some object - the world, an organism, a behavior, a religion, a mental event, an experience, or anything else - one has thereby eliminated all other possible causal explanations of that object. But this is a principle that is true only if materialism is true, and materialism is true only if this principle is true, and logical circles should not set the rules for our thinking.David Bentley Hart Deep Mental Sayings By David Bentley Hart: One of the deep prejudices that the age of mechanism instilled in our culture, and
The study of dreams may be considered the most trustworthy method of investigating deep mental processes. Now dreams occurring in traumatic neuroses have the characteristic of repeatedly bringing the patient back into the situation of his accident, a situation from which he wakes up in another fright.Sigmund Freud Deep Mental Sayings By Sigmund Freud: The study of dreams may be considered the most trustworthy method of investigating deep mental
Personal size and mental sorrow have certainly no necessary proportions. A large bulky figure has as good a right to be in deep affliction, as the more graceful set of limbs in the world. But, fair or not fair, there are unbecoming conjunctions, which reason will patronize in vain, - which taste cannot tolerate, - which ridicule will seize.Jane Austen Deep Mental Sayings By Jane Austen: Personal size and mental sorrow have certainly no necessary proportions. A large bulky figure has
The chief distinction in the intellectual powers of the two sexes is shown by mans attaining to a higher eminence, in whatever he takes up, than the woman. Whether deep thought, reason, or imagination or merely the use of the senses and hands ... We may also infer ... The average mental power in man must be above that of woman.Charles Darwin Deep Mental Sayings By Charles Darwin: The chief distinction in the intellectual powers of the two sexes is shown by mans
The word "depressed" is spoken phonetically as "deep rest". We can view depression not as a mental illness, but on a deeper level, as a profound, and very misunderstood, state of deep rest, entered into when we are completely exhausted by the weight of our own identity.Jeff Foster Deep Mental Sayings By Jeff Foster: The word "depressed" is spoken phonetically as "deep rest". We can view depression not as
I believe God has instilled in us a craving, a deep desire to run with Him on a fantastic adventure, yet many of us crawl along in life without even a glimpse of our hidden passion. There has to be a reason for living. There must be a Camelot, a hidden Utopia where we can rest from our personal campaigns. Fantasy opens our eyes to a better place, a shining city we do not yet know. And these stories provide a mental bridge to that city as we pursue horizons we could never distinguish with our physical eyes.Bryan Davis Deep Mental Sayings By Bryan Davis: I believe God has instilled in us a craving, a deep desire to run with
Recent breakthroughs in science show we have just the capacities we need to face our planet's challenges. We're "soft-wired" for cooperation, empathy, fairness, along with a deep need to "make a dent," as social philosopher Erich Fromm put it. My hunch is that one reason depression is a global pandemic is that the dominant mental map denies so many of us expression of these deep needs and capacities.Frances Moore Lappe Deep Mental Sayings By Frances Moore Lappe: Recent breakthroughs in science show we have just the capacities we need to face our
Our culture has become increasingly intolerant of that acute sorrow, that intense mental anguish and deep remorse which may be defined as grief. We want to medicate such sorrow away.Edward Hirsch Deep Mental Sayings By Edward Hirsch: Our culture has become increasingly intolerant of that acute sorrow, that intense mental anguish and
The pursuit of material-external things as if they can provide deep and lasting happiness is contributing to a dwindling of real meaning and is a factor contributing to an increase in mental health problems. It just isn't possible to fill the hole inside us by piling up the things outside us. pg9Dr Stephen McKenzie And Dr Craig Hassed Deep Mental Sayings By Dr Stephen McKenzie And Dr Craig Hassed: The pursuit of material-external things as if they can provide deep and lasting happiness is
Okay, take a deep breath, I told myself. Don't go all hormonal. Get the facts straight. Have a mental doughnut.Janet Evanovich Deep Mental Sayings By Janet Evanovich: Okay, take a deep breath, I told myself. Don't go all hormonal. Get the facts
I exercised my mental muscles in the library, and lo and behold, I transformed myself from a casual reader into a focused one. So it was more than just free books, but also free space and a culture that reinforced settling down, deep reading, thinking, imagining, and exploring with my mind. I am no doubt a writer today because I had a place to go as a kid, where I knew stories were essential, and where everybody also reveled in the wonder within books.Sergio Troncoso Deep Mental Sayings By Sergio Troncoso: I exercised my mental muscles in the library, and lo and behold, I transformed myself
We must be trained to clarify minds, heal broken hearts, and create homes where sunshine will make an environment in which mental and spiritual health may be nurtured. Our schooling must not only teach us how to bridge the Niagara River gorge, or the Golden Gate, but must teach us how to bridge the deep gaps of misunderstanding and hate and discord in the world.Spencer W. Kimball Deep Mental Sayings By Spencer W. Kimball: We must be trained to clarify minds, heal broken hearts, and create homes where sunshine
Before you begin, sit for a moment and take a couple of deep breaths. You want to be calm and prepared to maintain mental focusAaron Hoopes Deep Mental Sayings By Aaron Hoopes: Before you begin, sit for a moment and take a couple of deep breaths. You
Eliza and Liam were downstairs having a heartfelt deep discussion, each one having found something that had always seemed missing in each other. Throughout multiple discussions they had formed a strong bond that seemed to tie them together. They had an intense emotional and mental connection that was something very rare to find.A.L. Haddix Deep Mental Sayings By A.L. Haddix: Eliza and Liam were downstairs having a heartfelt deep discussion, each one having found something
Tim contemplated beyond the mainstream subscriptions that his materialistic interests had once subscribed to. He took his thoughts off of the mental bench of little activity, and decided to go full court - out passed the breakers of his old shallow reasoning, and into the deep waters where wisdom beckoned.Calvin W. Allison Deep Mental Sayings By Calvin W. Allison: Tim contemplated beyond the mainstream subscriptions that his materialistic interests had once subscribed to. He
As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.Henry David Thoreau Deep Mental Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single
Even the earliest silent readers recognized the striking change in their consciousness that took place as they immersed themselves in the pages of a book. The medieval bishop Isaac of Syria described how, whenever he read to himself, "as in a dream, I enter a state when my sense and thoughts are concentrated. Then, when with prolonging of this silence the turmoil of my memories is stilled in my heart, ceaseless waves of joy are sent me by inner thoughts, beyond expectation suddenly arising to delight my heart." Reading a book was a meditative act, but it didn't involve a clearing of the mind. It involved a filling, or replenishing, or the mind. Readers disengaged their attention from the outward flow of passing stimuli in order to engage it more deeply with an inward flow of words, ideas, and emotions. That was - and is - the essence of the unique mental process of deep reading.Nicholas Carr Deep Mental Sayings By Nicholas Carr: Even the earliest silent readers recognized the striking change in their consciousness that took place
Alarm clocks are the bane of humanity. Sleep inertia, the decline in motor dexterity, subjective feeling of grogginess, and impaired state of awareness and mental performance is normal after awakening from even a light sleep. Scientific studies reveal that abruptly awakening from a deep sleep amplifies the severity and duration of sleep inertia.Kilroy J. Oldster Deep Mental Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: Alarm clocks are the bane of humanity. Sleep inertia, the decline in motor dexterity, subjective
You'd rather be here than in Africa. The trump card all narrow-minded nativists play. If you put a cupcake to my head, of course, I'd rather be here than any place in Africa, though I hear Johannesburg ain't that bad and the surf on the Cape Verdean beaches is incredible. However, I'm not so selfish as to believe that my relative happiness, including, but not limited to, twenty-four-hour access to chili burgers, Blu-ray, and Aeron office chairs is worth generations of suffering. I seriously doubt that some slave ship ancestor, in those idle moments between being raped and beaten, was standing knee-deep in their own feces rationalizing that, in the end, the generations of murder, unbearable pain and suffering, mental anguish, and rampant disease will all be worth it because someday my great-great-great-great-grandson will have Wi-Fi, no matter how slow and intermittent the signal is.Paul Beatty Deep Mental Sayings By Paul Beatty: You'd rather be here than in Africa. The trump card all narrow-minded nativists play. If
Ultimately, our questions must emerge not from mental categories, but from deep within the heart. They must rise to the surface of our beings as we sit in silence, so that they are not just the old questions which we raise whenever we have nothing else to talk about or just for the sake of argument. They need to be the questions which make a difference in our lives.Zalman Schachter-Shalomi Deep Mental Sayings By Zalman Schachter-Shalomi: Ultimately, our questions must emerge not from mental categories, but from deep within the heart.
Why is it that our many mental institutions are overcrowded? People will not take their time. They do not live in the present! For are not all fears, phobias, crippling anxieties tied in with the future - a time that has not yet come - and may not? And are not deep depressions, melancholias, and foolish guilt complexes connected with the past - a time that is gone, and is gone forever - a time that cannot be changed even by God Almighty? These dementias most certainly bespeak some relation to the fact that those plagued with them have not been objective enough to stay in contact with the one great gratuitous reality called now.M. Raymond Deep Mental Sayings By M. Raymond: Why is it that our many mental institutions are overcrowded? People will not take their
I think you feel like, unless you're damaged
you're not deep enough or mysterious enough
or complicated enough to ever be appreciated by another.
And that is deeply untrue.

Having escaped the Dark Ages in which animals were mere stimulus-response machines, we are free to contemplate their mental lives. It is a great leap forward, the one that Griffin fought for. But now that animal cognition is an increasingly popular topic, we are still facing the mindset that animal cognition can be only a poor substitute of what we humans have. It can't be truly deep and amazing. Toward the end of a long career, many a scholar cannot resist shining a light on human talents by listing all the things we are capable of and animals not. From the human perspective, these conjectures may make a satisfactory read, but for anyone interested, as I am, in the full spectrum of cognitions on our planet, they come across as a colossal waste of time. What a bizarre animal we are that the only question we can ask in relation to our place in nature is "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the smartest of them all?Frans De Waal Deep Mental Sayings By Frans De Waal: Having escaped the Dark Ages in which animals were mere stimulus-response machines, we are free
A person experiences time by traveling through the environment consisting of time and space, and encounters a variety of sense impressions. Time is the combined experience and cataloguing what is taking place now, a recollecting what took place before now, and the anticipation or expectation of a person registering future physical and mental sensations. Time is a happening that will arrive from the future and it will last for about as long as it takes to a person to inhale and exhale one deep bodily breath. In each recognizable segment of time, a person experiences in a thematic breathing cycle a tangible sense perception of either seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching, or some combination thereof. Then that distinct morsel of life detected by the physical senses passes from the slipstream of now and lodges into the silted fold of bygone memories.Kilroy J. Oldster Deep Mental Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: A person experiences time by traveling through the environment consisting of time and space, and
The instinct is not completely satisfied unless a man's whole being, mental quite as much as physical, enters into the relation. Those who have never known the deep intimacy and the intense companionship of happy mutual love have missed the best thing that life has to give; unconsciously, if not consciously, they feel this and the resulting disappointment inclines them towards envy, oppression, and cruelty.Bertrand Russell Deep Mental Sayings By Bertrand Russell: The instinct is not completely satisfied unless a man's whole being, mental quite as much
A comfort zone can be a mental state:Belief in God is a lot of peoples's comfort zone. Dont get me wrong, I'm not knocking faith; I just dont think you should have it because it makes you feel safe. I think you should have it because you do. Because somewhere deep inside you, you know beyond equivocating that something greater, wiser and infinitely more loving than we're capable of understanding has a vested interested in the universe, in the way things turn out. Because you can feel that, as much as the forces of darkness might try to gain the upper hand, there is an Upper Hand.Karen Marie Moning Deep Mental Sayings By Karen Marie Moning: A comfort zone can be a mental state:Belief in God is a lot of peoples's
Dan wanted to cry out, or scream and yell and destroy with fists and boots. Anything, anything at all to break through the onslaught of emotions, but all he had was his lips, two arms, and one hand. Tongue, teeth, as well, and the most gut-wrenching sensation of feeling, physical, mental, gathering deep in his guts, spreading and searing through his body, traveling across blood. 'Vadim', it hammered through his being, 'Vadim. Alive. Vadim.' And he was lost.Marquesate Deep Mental Sayings By Marquesate: Dan wanted to cry out, or scream and yell and destroy with fists and boots.
The cycle begins with the false belief system shared by all addicts: that no one could want them or love them as they are. In fact, addicts can't love themselves. They are an object of scorn to themselves. This deep internalized shame gives rise to distorted thinking. The distorted thinking can be reduced to the belief, "I'll be okay if I drink, eat, have sex, get more money, work harder, etc." The shame turns one into what Kellogg has termed a "human doing," rather than a human being. Worth is measured on the outside, never on the inside. The mental obsession about the specific addictive relationship is the first mood alteration, since thinking takes us out of our emotions.John Bradshaw Deep Mental Sayings By John Bradshaw: The cycle begins with the false belief system shared by all addicts: that no one
I won't say that writing tamed the Black Beast. It soothed him, though, enough so he agreed simply to occupy a corner of my mind ... Gradually, I redirected my focus and skills towards causes much closer to my own heart: writing and mental health advocacy.

I felt so good at times that I even wondered, was I still bipolar? In my community work, I saw so many people who were much worse off than I was - deep in their disease in a way I no longer seemed to be. I knew that this often happens to manic-depressives: the brain forgets the ravages of the illness they way a woman forgets the pains of childbirth. You have to, to survive. But it's always a dangerous place to be, because you inevitably start to question the need for medication, therapy, and all the other rigorous stopgaps of sanity so carefully put into place to prevent another episode.
Terri Cheney Deep Mental Sayings By Terri Cheney: I won't say that writing tamed the Black Beast. It soothed him, though, enough so
Pranayam is the right science of breathing where deep, regulated and rhythmic breathing is done along with mental purification. Its practice plays an important role not only in cure of physical ailments, but also for moral and spiritual progress.Virchand Gandhi Deep Mental Sayings By Virchand Gandhi: Pranayam is the right science of breathing where deep, regulated and rhythmic breathing is done
For me, the beauty of the blank page, or empty screen,staring up at nine thirty after two cups of coffee and a deep breath remains unique. The blankness invites scribbling on, mental drawing , and the best feeling I know - apart from the more obvious sensual ones - is the feeling of putting down the first thought and seeing it turn into symbols. Making an idea into an emotion.Adam Gopnik Deep Mental Sayings By Adam Gopnik: For me, the beauty of the blank page, or empty screen,staring up at nine thirty
Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.D.H. Lawrence Deep Mental Sayings By D.H. Lawrence: Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is
We live in a superficial, media-driven culture that often seems uncomfortable with true depths of feeling. Indeed, it seems as if our culture has become increasingly intolerant of that acute sorrow, that intense mental anguish and deep remorse which may be defined as grief. We want to medicate such sorrow away. We want to divide it into recognizable stages so that grief can be labeled, tamed, and put behind us.Edward Hirsch Deep Mental Sayings By Edward Hirsch: We live in a superficial, media-driven culture that often seems uncomfortable with true depths of

So when joy arises at the level of your mind and not just your senses, you can maintain a deep sense of satisfaction for a much longer period of time - even for twenty-four hours. "So I always say to people, you have to pay more attention to the mental level of joy and happiness. Not just physical pleasure, but satisfaction at the level of mind. This is true joyfulness. When you are joyful and happy at the mental level, physical pain doesn't matter very much. But if there is no joy or happiness at the mental level, too much worrying, too much fear, then even physical comforts and pleasure will not soothe your mental discomfort." "ManyDalai Lama XIV Deep Mental Sayings By Dalai Lama XIV: So when joy arises at the level of your mind and not just your senses,
The baby was warm against my chest. I knew I was broken too. I wasn't like other people. I was scared and weird and anxious and sad lots of the time, and I didn't know why. My parents thought I was abnormal, I was pretty sure. They said I wasn't, but you don't get sent to a therapist if you're normal.
Sometimes we really aren't supposed to be the way we are. It's not good for us. And people don't like it. You've got to change. You've got to try harder and do deep breathing and maybe one day take pills and learn tricks so you can pretend to be more like other people. Normal people. But maybe Vanessa was right, and all those other people were broken too in their own ways. Maybe we all spent too much time pretending we weren't.

When the black thing was at its worst, when the illicit cocktails and the ten-mile runs stopped working, I would feel numb as if dead to the world. I moved unconsciously, with heavy limbs, like a zombie from a horror film. I felt a pain so fierce and persistent deep inside me, I was tempted to take the chopping knife in the kitchen and cut the black thing out I would lie on my bed staring at the ceiling thinking about that knife and using all my limited powers of self-control to stop myself from going downstairs to get it.Alice Jamieson Deep Mental Sayings By Alice Jamieson: When the black thing was at its worst, when the illicit cocktails and the ten-mile

I plant daffodil bulbs about eight inches deep. As I mentioned before, I don't use a ruler. As a married woman, I know perfectly well what six or eight inches looks like, so it's easy to make a good estimate. This mental measurement makes planting time much more interesting than it might be otherwise.Cassandra Danz Deep Mental Sayings By Cassandra Danz: I plant daffodil bulbs about eight inches deep.

Identify and replace any limiting deep-rooted beliefs that are like a solid mental prison, including thoughts like, 'I'm not worthy,' 'I can't do this,' 'I'm too old to start,' 'I don't have the qualification or skills to become a better person,' 'I'm always the unlucky one,' 'I have nothing to give/say or contributeArchibald Marwizi Deep Mental Sayings By Archibald Marwizi: Identify and replace any limiting deep-rooted beliefs that are like a solid mental prison, including
Over and over again, the same message, 'you are not enough'. You hear it enough times and it weaves itself into you, and it's not an idea any more it's who you are, 'not enough.' But then a boy comes along and changes the message. 'You are enough,' he says, 'enough for me.' And because he is all you have, being enough for him is enough for you, too, even though you know deep down that 'good enough' really just means 'pretty enough,' and if he really knew you, all of you, he'd bail, too.Lauren Miller Deep Mental Sayings By Lauren Miller: Over and over again, the same message, 'you are not enough'. You hear it enough
Do you really need to mentally label every sense perception and experience? Do you really need to have a reactive like/dislike relationship with life where you are in almost continuous conflict with situations and people? Or is that just a deep-seated mental habit that can be broken? Not by doing anything, but by allowing this moment to be as it is.Eckhart Tolle Deep Mental Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: Do you really need to mentally label every sense perception and experience? Do you really
The civilization of ancient Greece was nurtured within city walls. In fact, all the modern civilizations have their cradles of brick and mortar.
These walls leave their mark deep in the minds of men. They set up a principle of "divide and rule" in our mental outlook, which begets in us a habit of securing all our conquests by fortifying them and separating them from one another. We divide nation and nation, knowledge and knowledge, man and nature. It breeds in us a strong suspicion of whatever is beyond the barriers we have built, and everything has to fight hard for its entrance into our recognition.

Optimism is the parent of despair, while pessimism allows the mind to accustom itself to the inevitable disappointments of human existence by degrees, just as some drugs induce a state of tolerance. Pessimists, moreover, have the better sense of humour, for they have a livelier apprehension of pretension and absurdity. In a meritocracy, furthermore, those who fail must either indulge in elaborate mental contortions to disguise reality from themselves or sink into a deep melancholy.Anthony Daniels Deep Mental Sayings By Anthony Daniels: Optimism is the parent of despair, while pessimism allows the mind to accustom itself to
Later than usual one summer morning in 1984, Zoyd Wheeler drifted awake in sunlight through a creeping fig that hung in the window, with a squadron of blue jays stomping around on the roof. In his dreams these had been carrier pigeons from someplace far across the ocean, landing and taking off again one by one, each bearing a message for him, but none of whom, light pulsing in the wings, he could ever quite get to in time. He understood it to be another deep nudge from forces unseen, almost surely connected with the letter that had come along with his latest mental-disability check, reminding him that unless he did something publicly crazy before a date now less than a week away, he would no longer qualify for benefits. He groaned out of bed. Somewhere down the hill hammers and saws were busy and country music was playing out of somebody's truck radio. Zoyd was out of smokes.Thomas Pynchon Deep Mental Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: Later than usual one summer morning in 1984, Zoyd Wheeler drifted awake in sunlight through
It was nothing but a hole, a mouth open wide. You could lean over the edge and peer down to see nothing. All I knew about the well was its frightening depth. It was deep beyond measuring, and crammed full of darkness, as if all the world's darkness had been boiled down to their ultimate density.Haruki Murakami Deep Mental Sayings By Haruki Murakami: It was nothing but a hole, a mouth open wide.

Xhex couldn't stop herself from torturing them both. She sent him a mental scene, drilling the image right into his head : the two of them in a private bathroom, him up on the sink and leaning back, her with one foot planted on the counter, his sex deep in hers, the two of them panting. While he stared accross the crowded room, John's mouth parted, and the flush on his cheeks had nothing to do with embarrassment and everything to do with the orgasm that was no doubt pounding up his shaft. God, she wanted him. His buddy, the readhead, snapped her out of the madness. Blaylock came back to the table with three beers hanging from their necks, and as he took a look at John's hard, sexep-up face, he stopped short and glanced over at her in surprise.
Shit.
Xhex waved off the bouncers who were coming up to her and walked out of the VIP section so fast, she nearly bowling-pinned a waitress. Her office was the only place that was safe, and she headed there at a dead run.

A deep sense of struggle, a vast amount of mental discomfort from it, are no proof that a man is not sanctified. A true Christian is one who has not only peace of conscience, but war within.

PART 2
I felt doomed to death,
But in a flash,
Before I could reduce my thoughts
To an emotion,
I felt a mass leave my body:
Departing.
Then my mind becomes anonymous
As is each night.
Just unfinished thoughts,
and a deep sickness inside,
As I was forced to swallow it,
Something I've tried to bury deep inside my
psyche to this day.
(poem written by alter personality)

Even if we're among the lucky few who benefit from civilization, we find ourselves curiously unsatisfied, plagued by stress, worry, and conflict... Like the addict who believes against all evidence that what he can't give up won't lead to suffering and death, our culture adheres to its ideas in spite of ample, clear evidence they will lead to suffering and death.Michael Carter Deep Mental Sayings By Michael Carter: Even if we're among the lucky few who benefit from civilization, we find ourselves curiously
We have negative mental habits that come up over and over again. One of the most significant negative habits we should be aware of is that of constantly allowing our mind to run off into the future. Perhaps we got this from our parents. Carried away by our worries, we're unable to live fully and happily in the present. Deep down, we believe we can't really be happy just yet - that we still have a few more boxes to be checked off before we can really enjoy life. We speculate, dream, strategize, and plan for these "conditions of happiness" we want to have in the future; and we continually chase after that future, even while we sleep. We may have fears about the future because we don't know how it's going to turn out, and these worries and anxieties keep us from enjoying being here now.Thich Nhat Hanh Deep Mental Sayings By Thich Nhat Hanh: We have negative mental habits that come up over and over again.
