"Consciousness is due to the interaction between yourself and others and is proportional to that interaction. Therefore, you must not hold onto yourself saying, “I can’t talk because it may make me look bad. They would think that I’m something I’m not.”
"Presentation is the secret to greater consciousness, and consciousness is proportional to the degree of interchange between you and others. That is why, of course, we set you up in an interchange situation, a dyad. But you must interchange in it. Take your chance. Maybe they will hate you. Maybe your reputation will be reined forever. So what? Your passion for the Truth should be more valuable to you than your reputation, your ego."
