"[Reporter on TV: ] Conflicting eyewitness reports concerning "little green men"....

[ Mr. Wing: ] You teach him to watch television? I warned you. With mogwai comes much responsibility. But you didn't listen. And you see what happens. You do with mogwai what your society...has done with all of nature's gifts. You do not understand. You are not ready. He has something to say to you. To hear, one has only to listen.

[ Mogwai: ] Bye, Billy.

[ Mr. Wing: ] Perhaps someday you may be ready. Until then, mogwai...will be waiting."

Actor Keye Luke as Grandfather (Mr. Wing) in director Joe Dante's 'Gremlins' (1984)

"You need to know, you have to know, how to communicate with others who don't speak your language. When the Spaniards came our forefathers spoke Aymara since they were babies. But they had to learn the Castellano, now they want to forget Aymara, it is a shame to speak Aymara. […] Tourists coming from outside say to us: 'Don't stop talking Aymara'. They ask about some old things, they want to know how we were, about the Inca's, the fights against the Spaniards, how they danced, how they dressed, how they were. […] Once we digged in the ruins and we found ashes and they asked how they made fire if there were no matches. We take a little stone from the sand and one lime, we put donkey manure, and scratch until a spark lights a straw and the fire is ready. Those people want to know all these things, what people eat, how they were dressed in the old times. We heard rice is not food, flour is not food, bread is not food. All what earth produces is food; bread is only to blow the belly. But quinua, wheat, potatoes, beans, lettuce all these things, that is food. Don't drink soft drinks, eat sardines, candies, chewing gums and all kind of canned food, plastic, or made by a chemist. It is true."

"You must summon the courage to question your stories and do the digging to reveal and tap into the unique source of what is guiding your life. Guess what? This is an extraordinary challenge. [S]uch work requires that we slow down and find a place of silence. Patience is also requisite in order to tune into the whispered frequency of this inner voice. As we do this we must be prepared with an open courage to admit that the current story, the narrative that you once bought into lock, stock and barrel, may no longer be serving you."

Mark Divine in 'SealFit blog part 4, Stoke Your Inner Vision', published today on SealFit website:

“[R]emember, you will not be there alone. As you begin to awaken to your mission you will meet others of our tribe. You will recognize them by your common purpose, values, and intuitions, and by the similarity of the paths you have walked. As the condition of the planet Earth reaches crisis proportions, your paths will cross more and more. The time of loneliness, the time of thinking you might be crazy, will be over."

Charles Eisenstein, on page 270 of 'The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible', published by North Atlantic Books, Berkeley, 2013
