Professor Quotes


On July 10, 1982, The Professor Speaks...

“When people first make contact with their luminescent self, they have to combat the feeling of alienation engendered by contact with truth.”

“Homo-sapiens are no more than carrier vehicles for an individuation of infinite consciousness composed of totality of truth.”

“It is difficult, because most of us have spent a lot of time trying to polish up our Homosapien self and never come to terms with our God-given bag of assets and abilities.”

“Homo-sapiens’ combative nature draws its strength from self-centeredness. The ego has been forged by the Rogue Mind from the world of our imprisoned soul.”

“The shapes of our future are affected as a direct consequence of lives we contact. Our future is constantly being modified by the interaction of an infinite number of people we meet and decisions that we make every second of every hour of every day. This is where we lose our free will.”

Our future is to be become a nation of teachers within a realm of whole people; to be a light unto the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prisons, and those who sit in darkness...so they may see what we call the physical reality as the movie of illusion it is.

We are not separate beings we are one being.

A Poem



No matter where we go

we will find great people.

No matter how great they are

they will make mistakes.

No matter who we are

we make mistakes.

No matter our ideals

we will find friends.

No matter what plateau we find ourselves

we will find help.

No matter the situation

we must live our potential.

No matter the pain

we may leave friends and family behind.

No matter the challenge

we just cannot give up.

No matter the pain

we must get up.

The potentials we allow ourselves to conceive are what awakens us and is our experience in our world.

Friendship, letting go and living an engaging life are wonderful. 

Include in all you do...love, beauty and truth.

By Elliott
