7 Paranormal Quotations to Ponder

paranormal quotations

I was reading Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz last weekend, and stumbled across some metaphysical musings that were intriguing enough to jot down and ponder. None of the below quotes are from that book, but like Koontz’s, these seven all manage to put my mind on pause.

“Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance.”

– Nikola Tesla

magic

“The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords. In that realm a man may, perhaps, count himself fortunate to have wandered, but its very richness and strangeness tie the tongue of a traveler who would report them. And while he is there it is dangerous for him to ask too many questions, lest the gates should be shut and the keys lost.”

 – J.R.R. Tolkien, On Faery Stories

 “Demons are like obedient dogs; they come when they are called.”

 -Remy de Gourmont

magic

“Behind the veil of all hieratic and mystical allegories, behind the strange ordeals of initiation, behind the seal of all sacred writings, in the ruins of old temples, and in the ceremonies practiced by all secret societies, there is found a doctrine which is everywhere the same and everywhere carefully concealed.”

– 19th century French Cabbalist, Eliphas Levi

“Magick does not offer an escape from ordinary reality: rather it offers a full-on confrontation with it, which one can easily lose.”

-Peter J Carroll, Psybermagick

 What do you think? Is there trash or truth in these quotes?
