"Dying is a spiritual and psychological necessity, for after a while the exuberant, ever-renewed energies of the spirit can no longer be translated into flesh...The self outgrows the flesh."
Session 801, Page 12

"It is not understood that before life an individual decides to live. A self is not simply the accidental personification of the bodyís biological mechanism. Each person born desires to be born."
Session 801, Page 13

"I am not speaking here of the desire for suicide, which involves a definite killing of the body by self-deliberate means often of a violent nature. Ideally this desire for death, however, would simply involve the slowing of the bodyís processes, the gradual disentanglement of psyche from flesh; or in other instances, according to individual characteristics, a sudden, natural stopping of the bodyís processes. Left alone, the self and the body are so entwined that the separation would be smooth. The body would automatically follow the wishes of the inner self. In the case of suicide, for example, the self is to some extent acting out of context with the body, which still has its own will to live. I will have more to say about suicide, but I do not mean here to imply guilt on the part of a person who takes his or her own life. In many cases, a more natural death would have ensued in any event as the result of diseases."
Session 801, Page 13

"A personís private experience happens in the context of his psychological and biological statusí and basically cannot be separated from his religious and philosophical beliefs and sentiments, and his cultural environment and political framework"
Session 801, Page 18??

"Despite all realistic pragmatic tales to the contrary, the natural state of life itself is one of joy, acquiescence with itself - a state in which action is effective, and the power to act is a natural right."
Session 802, Page 23

"The mass world rises up before your eyes, but your eyes are part of that mass world."
Session 803, Page 29

"The physical world that you recognize is made up of invisible patterns. These patterns are plastic, in that while they exist, their final form is a matter of probabilities directed by consciousness. Your senses perceive these patterns in their own ways."
Session 803, Page 29

"If there were no death, you would have to invent it -- for the context of that selfhood would be as limited as the experience of a great sculptor given but one hunk of stone."
Session 803, Page 30

"The solid matter of your world is the result of the play of your senses upon an inner dimension of activity that exists as legitimately, and yet as tantalizingly hidden, as an idea or a dream location."
Session 803, Page 31

"Logic deals with exterior conditions, with cause-and-effect relationships. Intuitions deal with immediate experience of the most intimate nature, with subjective motions and activities that in your terms move far quicker than the speed of light, and with simultaneous events that your cause-and-effect level is far too slow to perceive."
Session 803, Page 32
