An embittered and disillusioned anonymous man confronts Abraham on the simplicity and naïveté of their teachings.
"You represent in your discourse here, the perspective of humans who believe they are not the creators of their own reality."
"You have taken upon yourself the discomfort and discord of millions of people."
"In the early days it would not have been unlike Jerry to have presented a question much like the one you have presented, because he was always riding in on his white horse with his white hat, trying to right the wrongs of the world, and he felt great frustration that there were those who were not cooperating with that intent."
BEST OF TIMES / WORST OF TIMES
"When we say that it's the best of times and the worst of times, we're not kidding, because the contrast does get greater and greater. Man's ability to inflict pain and harm upon one another is also increasing, as is man's ability to find love and harmony."
SOMETIMES IGNORANCE IS BLISS
"Someone who feels as strongly as you do, would say, 'Well you're just teaching people to put their head in the sand -- that ignorance is bliss.' And we would say, head in the sand is good if the alternative is being focused upon something that will cause an attraction of unwanted -- and ignorance IS bliss if attention to the unwanted causes you to practice a vibration that causes a point of attraction that brings you more of what you don't want."
THE MOST SIGNIFICANT THING
"Here is the most significant thing that we want to say to you. It is not important to us what you believe because what you believe is yours to believe. It IS important to us, what we know to be. We have discovered that by knowing what we know, our life is one of joy, and you've discovered that by knowing what you know, your life is one of misery. We just want to explain to you that there are choices."
