Arthur Deikman Quotes

Quotes by Arthur Deikman - (8 quotes)

Arthur Deikman - From the Aging category:

It just isn't the way you've been told. Let me give you an example: Time makes no sense. It really doesn't apply to me; it doesn't fit. My hair gets thin and I can't stay up all night the way I used to. But I don't change... (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Awareness category:

Awareness is something apart from, and different from, all that of which we are aware: thoughts, emotions, images, sensations, desires and memory. Awareness is the ground in which the mind's contents manifest themselves; they appear in it and disappear once again. (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Fantasy category:

So to keep a fantasy, do not peer too closely at the world; fuzzy vision suits you best. Your creative power, turned away, is aimed inside to juggle fantasies, to solve the problems of a child's intrigue. (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Fear category:

Creative action plays with the unknown. But as the child fears the dark... the adult child will be fearful too, faced with the dark world of the unknown mind, with vast concepts looking enormous just beyond the front yard. (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Mirrors category:

-on aging...
Inside you're like some kind of mirror, reflecting everything without absorbing it. (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Spirituality category:

At its most basic, the spiritual is the experience of the connectedness that underlies reality. The depth of that experience depends on the capacity of the individual to set aside considerations of self, thereby gaining access to connection. (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Time category:

On either side in Time, there's nothing similar to Now, only memories (the past) or imaginings (the future). The place you were ten seconds ago has vanished, and what is the place ten seconds ahead? There is nothing there. It's very odd. (Arthur Deikman)

Arthur Deikman - From the Unknowns category:

The unknown is uncontrolled; no strategies exist that will enclose the endless territory of the new. Only by trusting in yourself and in this world can you get past the watchdogs of your fears and out of the iron gates of the already-known. (Arthur Deikman)
