"So how can you possibly be happy? That's why you've got to study Zen. Or something. I mean call it what you want to, but it has to be a way in which you can discover you, so you cannot distinguish yourself from anything or anyone else. Because you, as we both know, think you're somebody, and that's where the problem begins. Because you're really not somebody, you're everybody." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Next to meditation itself, next to the practice of zazen, I really can't think of anything more important than the development of your career, because nothing has a greater effect on your awareness level. Whether your career is in the work force or your career is retirement and hobbies, looking after a family, a nation, a universe, it's all the same. We're talking about the major focus of your life (and) your time. Your career affects your awareness far more than you realize." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Personal power is a feeling -- a feeling that everybody wants called satisfaction. We can see it in someone who has a powerful life, someone who is able to get what they want to get or avoid what they want to avoid. That's one level of personal power. Now naturally, there's an entirely different level of personal power when we enter into the world of the psychic, the world of the occult, the world of the spiritual. Here personal power is the ability to enter into different planes of reality.
"Why do that? Because knowledge lies in those other dimensions. Power lies in those other dimensions. Beauty. Everything that's here and more. It's part of your world, that's why. It's part of the universe. It's part of you. Everything that is, is part of you. And as you pass through the other dimensions, you get an education, and you change and you grow." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

”Our subject tonight is transcendentalism -- the awareness of eternity in the present.... As I’m sitting talking to you, I’m watching a squirrel. I’m sitting here in the Dodge van and I’m watching this cute little guy hop back and forth, apparently oblivious to our technologically-oriented civilization. He’s out there in his world, a world of trees and nuts and wind and rain and sunshine -- completely unaware of the things that we are aware of, and, of course, we are unaware of the things that he is aware of. So transcendentalism suggests that we are aware of our world …but we are completely oblivious to a world that may be right next to us. Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
