"Seers maintain, naturally, that awareness always 
comes from outside ourselves, that the real mystery 
is not inside us. Since by nature the emanations at 
large are made to fixate what is inside the cocoon, 
the trick of awareness is to let the fixating 
emanations merge with what is inside us. Seers 
believe that if we let that happen we become 
what we really are--fluid, forever in motion, eternal."
"The degree of awareness of every individual sentient being depends on the degree to which it is capable of letting the pressure of the emanations at large carry it."
Carlos Castaneda "The fire from within" 1984
