“People would not be so acquiescent in their own oppression unless they were caught in a powerful delusion. Delude is from the Latin Deludere, “to play”…to defraud; to befool the mind of judgment so as to cause what is false to be accepted as true.”
Engaging the Powers pg. 88


“At an early age, we learn punishment and reward and form an image of perfection in order to try to be good enough to get the reward. We live by an image of how we should be in order to be accepted by everybody else and our fear of being rejected becomes the fear of not being good enough.” The Four Agreements – Don Miguel Ruiz


“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
