- Ernest Mandel

We do not believe that the Marxist program,
which embodies the continuity of the experience of
the actual class struggle and real revolutions of the
last one hundred and fifty years,
is a definitely closed book.
- Ernest Mandel

The only conclusion you can draw from the real historical
movement is that by and large,

On the contrary, history generally confirms that the
more conscious and the better you are organized in vanguard organizations,
the more constructively you operate in the mass organizations of the working class.

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.
The whole work of meditation is
to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Now you can do and act on only that
which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.

Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent.
Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.

burdened by the projections of the future,
you go on living - at the minimum.
You dont live at the maximum.
Your flame remains very dim.
Once you start dropping thoughts,
the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho
