Q: “At one point you mentioned that this is the only planet that has religion.”

Bashar: “The idea you call religion, in the sense that you somehow don’t think that the capacity for the relationship [with Infinite Creation] exists directly within you, and place that capacity within someone that you follow –- that we have rarely discovered anywhere else, and never in the form that your society exhibits it. The notion we find most different is the apparent belief in a disconnection between yourselves and the Infinite Creator. That God is outside of you, instead of the fact that you are God, that you are made of God, that everything is God, and that there’s no separation.”

I kind of view things as 50/50. Everything is 50/50. It’s not helpful when trying to set your expectations or trying to decide how to divvy up your time. But from the aspect of positiveness, it’s a great approach because it means you always have a chance. It means you always have a good chance.

We are in a place culturally where it is disadvantageous socially and economically to be racist. For this reason, racism is naturally being rooted out. Of course, there are some who will prefer to remain dogmatic, but they are those who would prefer to self-destruct than to admit they are wrong. They are our societal masochists.

What Fischer did to chess. That’s what I want to do to acting… which is pretty much what Brando did. But maybe it needs to happen again, and be explained.

I just think we can go deeper. I hope that’s OK.

It’s not about getting bigger, or better, or faster or stronger. It’s about the next evolution. It’s about a quantum leap that is so transformative that it yields the previous method useless.

I am a big fan of Illenium’s music. I wake up to it almost every day. My critique of it is, he follows the same formula for each song and he hasn’t yet shown that he can do more than produce singles, as opposed to writing albums.

He’s being a normal person and actually saying what he feels as opposed to everyone else in public positions who careful edits what they say. Nothing is wrong with him. People have simply lost their minds.
