Here are some quotes
by and about Patricia Sun
"What is important is our power of choice: our power to choose what we pay attention to—and to pay attention wholesomely to what works and what is good..."—Partricia Sun
"War is a failure of human intelligence."—Patricia Sun
"War comes from our being immature, fearful, and injured, and not being able to conceive of other ways of solving problems. It comes from an immature style of thinking where creativity and overview is scarce." —Patricia Sun
"There's nothing wrong with capitalism that ethics wouldn't cure."—Patricia Sun
"There is only one thing keeping us from Heaven on earth - We can't believe it." —Patricia Sun
"One of the reasons we get very stuck when making jumps in awareness is that we know what we are looking for, but we don't want to risk going into unfamiliar territory to find it. Let there be joy when you step into the unknown. It takes courage. It takes heart--and that is the evolutionary leap." —Patricia Sun
"Healing wounds and claiming truth is the crux of the matter for everybody, whether they realize it or not."—Patricia Sun
"What matters is to respond to our children in a way that whole-heartedly makes us and them feel good. Responding from that respect-filled, vulnerable, innocent place--transforms our lives and relationships."—Patricia Sun
"If you want to do something for world peace, cultivate kindness, stop hating, and have hope for all individuals including you."—Patricia Sun
"We are pioneers, learning what goodness is from an internal experience. We are maturing, developmentally, into an understanding of the difference between being 'right' and having good information. We are discovering how to live from a deeper place of truth and knowing. When you live this way, congruence radiates out of your voice and out of your body, the net effect of which opens the doors of perception in both you and others. We begin to experience time, cause and effect, and need, in a whole new way. We become more relaxed. We see the bigger picture of life. The two hemispheres of our brains work together. More synchronicity happens, more magical serendipity, and more of a sense that we are part of a bigger flow.
The next leap in our evolution hinges on this newly developing capacity. Abraham Lincoln foreshadowed this leap when he said to the Congress in 1862:
'The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise—with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must dis-enthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.
Fellow citizens—we cannot escape our history...
We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth. Other means may succeed; this could not fail. The way is plain, peaceful, generous, just—a way which, if followed, the world will forever applaud, and God must forever bless.'
—Abraham Lincoln & Patricia Sun, Chapter 30 "Healing Our Planet, Healing Ourselves
