If ordinary people really knew that consciousness and not matter is the link that connects us with each other and the world, then their views about war and peace, environmental pollution, social justice, religous values, and all other human endeavors would change radically.

— Amit Goswami

The most craziest Amit Goswami quotes that are glad to read

Contrary to what they tell you... You are not a limited material being.


When we are aware of our inner-growth potential yet have no pretensions about ourselves, when we are vulnerable, then we can change.


I had vainly been seeking a description of consciousness within science;

instead, what I and others have to look for is a description of science within consciousness. We must develop a science compatible with consciousness, our primary experience.


Quantum physics presents a new and exciting worldview that challenges old concepts, such as deterministic trajectories of motion and causal continuity. If initial conditions do not forever determine an object's motion, if instead, every time we observe, there is a new beginning, then the world is creative at the base level.


For many years quantum physics had been giving indications that there are levels of reality other than the material level.


It can be made only when one recognizes the ground of being itself, when one recognizes directly that One is All.


Any attempt to dismiss a phenomenon that is not understood merely by explaining it as hallucination becomes irrelevant when a coherent scientific theory can be applied.


Evolution is fundamentally creative, and when we align ourselves with the evolutionary movements of consciousness, the universe itself puts wind in our sails. Quantum thinking goes beyond the thoughts we're aware of; it includes unconscious processing, which doesn't just expand our boundaries, but can also free us from the suffering that conscious processing (sometimes known as 'the monkey mind') creates.


Consciousness is the ground of Being.


The idea that consciousness is the ground of being is the basis of all spiritual traditions.


It is not just do do do. It is not just be be be. It is do be do be do.


Consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all existence.

Consciousness does matter. Matter is secondary. Consciousness is primary. Brain does not do consciousness, consciousness does the brain.


We can truly see that consciousness is operating creatively even in biology, even in the evolution of species.


What if consciousness is the ground of being? What if the possibilities discovered by quantum physics are the possibilities of consciousness itself? Remember there is already a class of people who think in this way. They are called mystics, and they say it is all God. Finally, a few scientists dared to say that some of the characteristics attributed to God are similar to what we describe as consciousness.


Start with yourself. Only if you change can the world change. We are just taking it a little bit further. Not only do you start with yourself, but always remember others.


Consciousness comes first; it is the ground of all being. Everything else, including matter, is a possibility of consciousness. And consciousness chooses out of these possibilities all the events we experience.


You can't create a new reality with the same personality.


Quantum physics is the physics of possibilities.

And not just material possibilities, but also possibilities of meaning, of feeling, and of intuiting. You choose everything you experience from these possibilities, so quantum physics is a way of understanding your life as one long series of choices that are in themselves the ultimate acts of creativity.


Consciousness is not mind; it is the ground of all being, the ground of both matter and mind. Matter and mind are both possibilities of consciousness.
